Now that Afterpay Day is here, you have until Sunday, August 20 to snatch up a new vacuum – Dyson’s had already discounted a big range of its powerful stick vacuums, including some of the best vacuum cleaners in Australia, and Dyson's eBay store has knocked off a little extra – so long as you use Afterpay at checkout.

Bargains include 36% off the Dyson Gen5detect Absolute, one of Dyson’s most powerful vacuum cleaners to date, as well as 42% off the Dyson V12 Detect Slim Complete, a lighter option that still offers high performance and incredible suction.

There’s up to AU$550 in savings to score, and while some of these are part of Dyson’s Afterpay Day sale, you don’t have to use Afterpay to snatch up all of these deals. Scroll down to check out the highlights:

Dyson Afterpay Day deals

Dyson Gen5detect Absolute AU$1,549AU$999 at Dyson

Dyson Gen5detect Absolute | AU$1,549 AU$999 at Dyson (save AU$550)

Making some key changes from Dyson’s V-series vacuums, the Dyson Gen5detect boasts powerful suction not seen in any Dyson vac before it. Our review found that the increased battery life and the switch from a trigger to a power button helped to make this a fantastic option… so long as you don’t mind how heavy it is. Fortunately, Dyson’s smooth, motorised vacuum heads glide easily over floors, and with 70 minutes of runtime and a replaceable battery pack, you should have few issues cleaning a large space. Plus with a AU$550 discount directly from Dyson, it’s a great chance to snatch up this powerful vacuum. This isn’t the biggest saving we’ve seen on the Gen5detect however, as it dropped to just under AU$900 for eBay Plus members in July.

To get the full 16% discount on the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute, you need to use the code HGTAUG at checkout through Dyson Australia’s eBay store. While this saving isn’t as big as the others on offer, the Dyson V15 Detect sits at the second spot on our best vacuums list thanks to its compact and lightweight design paired with its powerful, dynamic suction. It has a 0.76L canister, up to 60 minutes of runtime with swappable batteries and a versatile design so you can switch it between a stick vacuum and a handheld one. 

Dyson V12 Detect Slim Complete AU$1,399fromAU$694 at Dyson eBay

Dyson V12 Detect Slim Complete | AU$1,399 from AU$694 at Dyson eBay (save up to AU$705)

The Dyson V12 Detect Slim was announced at the same time as the Dyson V15 Detect back in May 2021, and is a lighter and cheaper offering from Dyson. Of course, this comes with some compromises, but our Dyson V12 Detect Slim review still rates this vacuum 4-stars thanks to its design, suction and affordability when compared to its larger counterpart. There’s up to AU$452 off this versatile vacuum, and to get the biggest saving, you’ll need to use the code APAYDAY, and pay with Afterpay at checkout through Dyson Australia’s eBay store.

Rather buy it directly from the source? Dyson also has this vacuum on sale for AU$794, saving you AU$605 off its regular price.

Offering flexibility thanks to its design that allows it to be switched between a stick and hand vacuum, the Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute comes with an array of accessories including a Fluffy cleaner head, crevice tool, hair screw tool and combination tool as well. For the full AU$600 saving, you’ll need to go to Dyson eBay and use the code APAYDAY and pay with Afterpay at checkout, otherwise you can find this vacuum directly from Dyson for a little more at AU$799.
