Costco is having this vacuum for $399.99 +Free shipping.

https://www.costco.com/Dyson-V8-A...13061.html

Might be available in the store too but I can't check since the nearest one to me right now is 2 hours away.

This is the lowest price that I've seen for a new Dyson V8 Animal.
Features from Costco Website:
  • For All Floor Types
  • Powerful V8 Digital Motor
  • Larger Dust Bin
  • Battery Life Indicator
  • Tools Included: Crevice
  • Combination
  • Soft Dusting Brush & Hard Floor Tool
  • 5.6 Pound Weight


My thoughts after researching the various vacuums:
If you're comparing this V8 Animal to the V8 Absolute, the motor and vacuum power is the same. The only difference are the accessories. The V8 Animal does not come with the soft roller head (which people say are great for hard wood floors).

If comparing this to the V6 generation of vacuums, this V8 has a bigger trash bin, doubles the normal battery usage from 20 mins in V6 to 40 mins in V8. If using the motorized heads, it brings the V6 15mins to 25mins in the V8.

First Post, let me know if I'm missing anything and I'll update as appropriate.

Good price but need the soft roller brush for hardwood floors.Hoping for a deal on that.

What is the "hard floor tool" that is included in this?

I've got 2 of the v8 absolute and if you have hardwood, tile, slate, any kind of flat floor other then carpet you WANT the soft hardwood floor head. It seriously cleans great.

good to know, thanks. It would be nice if Dyson offered more variants of the V8 like they do with the V6. Surprising how expensive the attachments are.

What did I say to get them to price match? I called and told them that Costco has it for $399, they verified it and matched. They did say that the attachments are not usually offered with the V8, I said that there was no real incentive to purchase from Dyson then since I could pick up at Costco today. When I asked if they could make an exception, she got approval from her supervisor to include the 3 attachments.

Very tempted myself. I have a good amount of wood flooring and not sure if I should wait around for a deal on the absolute..... Decisions, Decisions .

What kind of attachments are they? Did you get the soft roller? If so, will definitely try this...

Do you have a link to the vacuum you bought? I just contacted them and they pointed out that the cordless v8 animal is a costco exclusive. They offered to discount s different vac, but the price out the door would be much higher. Thanks!
