Ready To Be #DysonClean ? ~ Giveaway ARV $599

Ugh.  Does this sound familiar?  You’re expecting company in a an hour and the house is a disaster.  What you need to do is a quick “shuffle’.  Tidy the kitchen, wipe up the bathroom counters and give the floors a quick once over.  You run around, grabbing stray magazines and homework off the floor, get those dishes put away, finally get to the vacuum and FAILURE.  Why is the vacuum not SUCKING THIS TIME!  Every time with this vacuum it’s something different!  The bags full, the spinny thing won’t spin, it just won’t suck!  Why can’t I just plug in my vacuum and know it will work.

Enter the Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 into my life.

Every time I plug it in I know it will work!  Dog (or people) hair doesn’t slow it down.

It moves seamlessly from hardwood to rugs, and if the container that holds all that dirt fills up, I just press one button and empty it.  Easy Peasy.

  1. Cheryl H says:

    My biggest problem is my vacuum doesn’t suck and with a vacuum that’s not good. It leaves crumbs and stuff on the carpet and I have to go vote an area several times to get it all up and it still feel so dirty after

    • Maureen says:

      My central vac is not as efficient as one can hope. It’s suction power is weak or may stop without knowing during cleaning, the plug will disconnect and the risk of tripping over the cord is high. This is how my poor mother broke her hip last summer! I could indeed use a replacement!

  2. OK so my vacuum it’s a rainbow which is a fantastic vacuum technically however the pieces now do not want to stay together my dog has chewed every single piece there is possible to this one of the clams doesn’t work so you can pick it up otherwise you drop water everywhere it smells it’s already been broken with water chemistry is held my grandfather had to fix it it’s glued it with no leaks so I think I really really really would love a new vacuum cleaner I have two German Shepherd’s and the cat and our new baby and as you can imagine they produce quite a lot of hair I would like my baby I have a clean home to crawl around on and learn to walk on the floors please pick me for this dyson

  3. Laurie P says:

    my current vacuum is so inefficient, I have to go over areas twice most times……I definitely need this upgrade, my fingers are crossed!

  4. Melinda says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it does not pick up all the dirt on the carpet. The suction is not good.

  5. kristen says:

    My biggest frustration is that my vacuum always clogs when cleaning up big amounts of animal hair. It also doesn’t clean very well against the baseboards and corners of the walls.

  6. Mary Boudreau says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that the suction is not all that great

  7. Shirley p says:

    The suction would be my biggest problem and would like something more lightweight

  8. Our central vac no longer works properly! The suction is terrible and the hose doesn’t even reach a part of the home we added on in the last few years. In addition, we have bad allergies in the family. My son has the worst symptoms and suffers from seasonal allergies as well as asthma. I’ve heard that Dyson vacuums are amazing and I would be so grateful to have one in my home. Hoping it would not only get my house cleaner, but ease my son’s allergy suffering. Thanks for the chance!

  9. Amanda Masters says:

    Biggest frustration with my current vaccum is that it’s not a Dyson. My husband had one living in England and we couldn’t fathom shipping costs so basically he started again with nothing here but 2 suitcases and my very old stuff. As a single mom I didn’t have the best of anything. He’s been here 4 years now and every time he vaccuums I hear him mumble under his breath that it’s no Dyson, the suction stinks and we are buying one. I’d love to give him one to keep him happy and so I can finally stop hearing about how he gave up his Dyson and came to Canada for me. Thank you!

  10. Shellie Clark says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it does get all the cat hair from my two cats.

  11. KittyPride says:

    My current vacuum can not handle the hair, from the humans and dogs, it gets wound around the beater bar and stops it from turning, burning out the motor.

  12. Michelle K says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it doesn’t pick up everything. I have to go over everything quite a few times and it still leaves behind crumbs and cat hair.

  13. lisa bolduc says:

    I have a shag carpet and it doesn’t pick up a single thing on it

  14. Janet M says:

    My biggest frustration is to move it where I want it to go, i.e. under furniture and in corners- where the dust is hiding. I would like a light weight vacuum that is easy to move but has power.

  15. Sarah Smart says:

    My biggest woe is that my ancient vacuum cleaner EATS MY CARPETS! It rips a WHOLE lines worth out in my upstairs hallway and living room- THE WORST!!

  16. Allison Picano says:

    Everytime I go to grab my vacuum for a quick once over (like yesterday for Mother’s Day) it’s on for 2 minutes barely sucking anything up and then BLAMO! It shuts off because it’s overheated! Then it won’t turn back on for an hour and by then it’s too late, eveyone is here! I NEED A DYSON!!

  17. Barbara Dye says:

    I share a carpeted bachelor apartment with 3 ageing cats…I too am ageing..74. The problem with my stick vacuum is that it REFUSES to pick up litter around the boxes….arrgh.

  18. Marlene J says:

    I don’t have a vacuum, mine broke so this is why I am entering your giveaway, I need one.

  19. Colleen H says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is when I spill something (like sugar) on the floor, when I go to vacuum it up, it all blows backwards, and makes more of a mess. Takes me way too long to clean up the mess. So frustrating!!

  20. BlessedTA says:

    Having to change bags

  21. My biggest challenge with my vacuum is that the suction isn’t really up to par; our house is half tiled and half carpet so I am currently using a canister vacuum. There are also issues with the cord length and replacing the bag. It would be great to have a Dyson!

  22. Sandy Trojansek says:

    I hate that I have to go over some areas several times to get all the hair/crumbs/dust off the carpet! HELP!! This product would be perfect for me!

  23. Melissa Dupuis says:

    I have a 1 year old vacuum that is a right off. I honestly rather sweep then use it. It doesn’t suck it just spits everything out. It’s completely useless. And yes I have tried cleaning it out and bringing it into get fixed. For those reading .. don’t cheap out on a vacuum – you get what you pay for. If I had a Dyson I’m sure this would have never happened!

  24. My biggest frustration is the size and weight , its so heavy to move around for me , i have a hard time getting it out and dragging it around ! That alone is a whole chore !

  25. My BIGGEST vacuum frustration is loss of suction! I must go over the same patch of carpet a dozen times trying to suck up Cheerios that the kids have dropped…thank goodness for coffee for my sanity! Lol

  26. My biggest problem is the suction is horrible. I find I am getting a new vacuum every year because the suction gets worse with use. It is also very heavy and hard to haul around the whole house.

  27. The suction on my vacuum is terrible, and because the suction is not good, the brush at the head of the vacuum sometimes just spits dirt around. I end up with dirt that is spread out instead of picked up! Ugh!

  28. Alayne Langford says:

    My current vacuum does not pick up the hair from my 2 fur babies and my 4 daughters, and also the dust!! Nothing beats a Dyson, right??

  29. Leanne S says:

    It’s ok but the cat fur really clogs it up

  30. Marisa. P says:

    I have a shark vacuum and it uses specific bags of course. I keep buying them because I can never find them and now I have 12 have opened packages of vacuum bags and my vacuum broke.
    They don’t make that model anymore so now I have bags and no machine.


  31. Jackie M says:

    I need a new vacuum as I’m just using a crappy one that has ZERO suction power. That defeats the purpose of a vacuum!

  32. Brenda Lacourciere says:

    My biggest frustration is that my current vacuum does not have enough suction powwer

  33. Jessica Fernandes says:

    I have a dog that sheds in black and white. No surface is safe!

  34. Jeannie Lam says:

    My biggest frustration right now is that our vacuum doesn’t do a good job with vacuuming up hair!

  35. Erika p says:

    My current vacuum leaves fuzz on carpets. Boo

  36. My biggest problem with my current vacuum is it doesn’t vacuum everything off the floor. After vacuuming, I still end up stepping on crumbs my kid left around.

  37. Suzanne G says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is the suction which it really lacks. It just does not get my floors clean.

  38. Kate Rivard says:

    Had to clean after my boyfriend did renovations that involved joints ciment… I had to clean up my vacuum every 10 minutes grrr! And theirs always something getting stock! Grrr!!

  39. My biggest frustration is it doesn’t move a around very well! It’s big and clunky and awkward.

  40. Josie Tusa says:

    My biggest frustration is that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. It can get really aggravating at times.

  41. JUDY BOHMANN says:

    i so need a new vacume. my currant one is a cheapy and has no suction. i did own a different dyson and it did wonderfull job. it also had the greatest warenty. SO PLEASE PICK ME (LOL)

  42. Gillian Morgan says:

    Well my vacuum is two years older than I am. It barely has any suction left. They don’t sell the bags anymore so I have to empty it myself. And the cord is tangled beyond repair.

  43. My biggest frustration is vacuums not sucking up all the cat hair! It’s spring and they’re shedding.

  44. Nicole Jubleew says:

    My biggest frustration is the lack of suction power.

  45. my biggest frustration is that I don’t have one !! it broke a few months ago and we can’t afford a new one!

  46. . The biggest frustration is the blockages in the hose. Pet hair, cereal and whatever is dragged can get caught in one spot and I have to practically dismantle the vacuum to clear it.

  47. my frustration with my current vacuum is that I have to take out the 2 filters, wash and dry them, when I empty the dirt. It also doesn’t reach where I want it to and could do better at suction.

  48. My biggest frustration with our current vacuum is its weight especially when doing stairs.

  49. Jaimeem says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is not enough suction coming from it!

  50. Rhonda W G. says:

    The upstairs one keep falling apart…so frusturating. The little ones downstairs have poor suction. It takes forever and is hard on me with a bad back.

  51. Amy Heffernan says:

    My biggest frustration is that its hard to use in hard to reach places. It also is not very good. Currently using one of those walmart stick vaccums. It does not work very well!

  52. Shamarra says:

    My current vacuum has horrible suction! It would be great to have a vacuum that could keep up with our day to day messes.

  53. Joanne J says:

    Our current vacuum is a tank. So big, heavy and cumbersome that I don’t bother hauling it out to use it! I end up on my bruised knees picking things up by hand or wiping floors with paper towel! ACK!

  54. Its an old one and doesn’t suck properly time to replace it. Thanks for the chance to win a vacuum.

  55. Emily Mitton says:

    My biggest problem is the suction on the vacuum I have! No pun intended but, it sucks and not in the way it should!

  56. I can’t send a picture but words won’t do it justice. I have a Dyson which is close to 10 years old. Someone crashed it into a bed frame and now it is taped together. Still works on hardwood and tile but the suction for rugs is just not there.

    I have been putting off replacing it because we weren’t sure what we are doing with our floors but if we do carpeting in bedrooms we will surely need a new one.

  57. Danielle says:

    My vacuum doesn’t seem to ever pick up how it should and I have to go over the same spots over and over again just to make it look decent. And I am always having to clean the spinning brush because it gets packed full of hair.

  58. Robyn Bellefleur says:

    My biggest frustration is maneuverability.

  59. Jennifer Corrigan says:

    My biggest problem with my current vacuum is that it’s slowing dying on me lol so I’m currently using a bissel lol tons of fun with two dogs haha
    Thank you for the opportunity
    Good luck everyone 😄😄

  60. My bigest frustration is lack of suction. It worked great for the first few months but now it will barely pick up anything. I have yet to find a vacuum that doesn’t lose suction after just a few months of use.

  61. I dont feel I can use it on anything BUT carpet – and my home is more than just that

  62. It doesn’t have enough suction power to it!

  63. Lushka Smith says:

    My biggest frustration is my vacuum is as old as dirt and hate constantly plugging and unplugging to get the job done.

  64. wendy Hutton says:

    my biggest problem is my current vacuum doesn’t seem to pickup hair off of area rugs

  65. Christine Murray says:

    My biggest problem is it is too loud and it doesn’t have enough suction to get the carpets and floors completely clean. Thank you for the chance.

  66. Stephanie says:

    My current vacuum has lost it’s suction and it’s very frustrating as it makes cleaning harder

  67. ivy pluchinsky says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that pieces seem to be breaking off of it, and its clear that I could use a new one!

  68. LILLIAN M BROWN says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it is losing its suction, it does not pick up the dog hair and it is very noisy, should be expected -it is 10 years old.

  69. My vacuum is cumbersome and the suction isn’t all it should be.

  70. Mine is very heavy.

  71. Glogirl says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it doesn’t suck up the dirt properly anymore. You have to go over the same spot about 5x to get it to pick up anything! We need a new vacuum!!

  72. Tania B says:

    My frustration is that our current vacuum is literally falling apart. I keep having to tape things back together.

  73. Judy Cowan says:

    My current vacuum is heavy to push around and I wish it would do a better job at picking up all the cat hair.

  74. Natalie S says:

    It doesn’t really pick up as well as it should and it uses bags. Would love this one!!

  75. kristen visser says:

    Gah the fact that it sucks (or lack there of) does not do the job quite well, it’s heavy and it smells lol

  76. Catheirne Robichaud says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it’s so heavy and the suction isn’t very good because there is holes in the hose that I have duct taped but it still leaks.

  77. I hate that my current vacuum is hard to manoeuvre. It’s super heavy and clumsy. This Dyson would be a game-changer for me!

  78. Florence Cochrane says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that it keeps cutting out when I try to manoeuvre it and it does not suck very well. It is old and heavy.

  79. Natalie says:

    Okay, don’t judge me. I’m NOT a cat lady, I just have a huge heart and can’t leave poor little baby animals outside to fight for survival against raccoons and cars and mean people who will hurt them just because they’re black cats, okay? Okay.

    So my biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it cannot keep up with the cat hair! I have *ahem* a few cats that I rescued from the big scary outside (a momma cat, her big bad protector, and her babies) plus one really old girl I rescued from the shelter. They shed like mad even though I brush them every day. And the vacuum I have is so not up to that job. They sucking power, well, SUCKS and the itty bitty bag fills up so quickly I have to change it once a week. Once. A. Week. I need a stronger, more pet friendly vacuum to keep the cat fur tumblewweds at bay!

  80. Brenda A says:

    We have a 20+ year old central vac that has seriously seen better days. The hose is so taped up and the actual filter in the canister in the garage needs replacing badly. I would rather a whole new system like a Dyson!

  81. Elaine G says:

    My biggest frustration is loss of suction.

  82. The problem with my vaccum is that it lost suction!

  83. The biggest problem with our vacuum is that it isn’t powerful enough. I still find a ton of dog hair on the carpet and usually have to go over it again with my handheld vacuum to try to clean it some more!

  84. Michelle Policelli says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that no matter how many times you go over the carpets there are always cat hair still on them!

  85. The bag keeps popping off.

  86. Kathy Marcella says:

    My “no clog” vacuum clogs within 10 mins of use. Constantly emptying the canister. So FRUSTRATING! Ugh

  87. Tamme Apostolou says:

    So here is my problem with my vacuum, I don’t have one. my central vacuum broke over a year ago. I sucked up a baby wipe and it caused a fire in the canister thingy in my garage, who knew??? So as of right now I am borrowing a 30 year old electro lux from my sister, who borrowed it from my mother. It has many issues as you can imagine, for one it is very difficult to find the bags and secondly the thing a majig that holds the electric carpet cleaner is broken, so it keeps taking off and smashing into the furniture. At this point not sure who broke it, me, my sister or my mom!

  88. My biggest frustration with my current vacuum? Make that vacuumS! I have a few hand me down vacuums, and there is something wrong with all of them. My hand held one that was intended for the stairs doesn’t hold a charge anymore, the ancient cannister one in the basement is ancient, and doesn’t suck anymore, and our upright one sounds like an airplane landing in our house! There is also a crack in it so you have to hold it a certain way if you want to use the hose to do stairs. SUPER frustrating. I want to get rid of all of them and replace them with just one that works great and doesn’t cause all the stress because vacuuming is actually quite relaxing!

  89. It dose not work well and leaves the air with a bad smell.

  90. ginette4 says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that I’m using a shop vac as a vacuum, would love a real vacuum

  91. Shelley N says:

    My current vacuum is an upright with very poor suction and the thing that drives me crazy is that when I use it on bare floors it spits the crumbs, small stones, and bits back at my feet and legs so it takes forever to clean the bare floors. I usually have to use the hose to avoid it.

  92. Jennifer Marie says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that it does not pick up pet hair very well.

  93. Melinda Jana says:

    it cannot handle all the fur that my dog sheds on a daily basis. I feel like it’s always clogged

  94. debbie paisley says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it does not pick all the dog in my house. I still have dog hair after vacuuming.

  95. Jenness M says:

    My vacuum is over 15 years old and it just doesn’t pick up everything so I have to go over the same spot a few times. Very time consuming!

  96. Christine w says:

    My vacuum cleaner does not pick up all the dust. I have to go over the carpet a few times to get it looking clean. who knows how much hidden dirt there is!

  97. I’ve got a pet that sheds a great deal and a wife who is desperate to own a Dyson.

    I could finally have a vacuum that truly “sucks” and win some points with the wife!!

    Please please please think of my sanity when making your draw!!

  98. Jenny B says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that it is big and bulky. It is hard to maneuver and to lug up and down the stairs.

  99. Anna Roszak-Robinson says:

    My biggest problem with vacuuming is it takes me so long because mine isn’t powerful enough to suck up dog hair from my 80 pound golden doodle and 3 girls all with long hair. I have to go over the same spot so many times, I end up going on my knees to rub it with my hands and help it make its way up the vacuum. By the time I’m done my arms and neck are tender and sore. It turns out to be a big chore every time I vacuum.
    I wish I could post a picture here of my dog to show you all her hair.
    I’d love to win this. Thank you.

  100. Lynda Cook says:

    My biggest problem with my vacuum is I do not have the suction it takes to pick up all the dog hair and my accessories for the vacuum are all missing so there is no way I can clean under anything or do the furniture really good

  101. It’s small so it fills up quickly, not cordless, i could go on

  102. Julie bolduc says:

    My biggest frustrating problem with my vacuum cleanser is I only own a shop Vac and it is super heavey

  103. the bag seems to fill up too fast

  104. Gina Makrydakis says:

    I hate that I have to switch the attachment on my vacuum in the middle of my cleaning to do area rugs, tile and hardwood. It’s annoying and would be much quicker and efficient if I can do it all in one shot

  105. Lee-Ann S says:

    I currently have a Dyson but my biggest frustration is moving it up and down the stairs since we live in a backsplit.

  106. My biggest frustration today is that I don’t have a vacuum. I have to sweep my carpets and floors which doesn’t do that great of a job – as you can imagine. My vacuum broke down a long while ago. It was heavy and hard to maneuver. I had to keep emptying it because the dog hair and whatever else that landed on my floors and carpets would fill it up. The hair would get trapped in the hose as well so I was ALWAYS stopping the vacuum, unplugging it and almost taking it apart to get to where the clog was. Then after all that, go to start it up again and it wouldn’t be picking up that much off the carpet. Lo and behold – the brush in the head was FULL of dog hair – okay – I have to admit – there was some of my hair in that mess too. Okay – so now I am taking that apart and using a nail file – YES you heard right! I used a nail file to try and dislodge all the hair from the brush that was wrapped around it so tight you’d think it was an entrance to For Knox!. Nothing was getting past that wound around hair. It would take me forever to clean that brush head off. Owning a Dyson would be a dream – one can dream – right?!

  107. Clair Palmer says:

    for me its that it sucks lol but not in a good way, bad way, it dont suck up what I need it to, and just dont seam to pick up any dog hair at all so it feels like I just have way more cleaning to do

  108. Uggg my vacuum sucks! Well sometimes it sucks, other times there’s some sort of string-like thing wrapped around the rollers, other times it’s jammed by a hackey sack, or a juice container lid (that one was a NIGHTMARE to remove from the hose!).
    I’m always the one who has to empty it too, gross. I’ve never had good luck with any vaccuum; it’s great the first few times but then they never seem to be giving 100%. I guess you get what you pay for!

  109. i have a brand new stick vacuum and alreafy dint find it has strong enough suction to clean the floor properly. We end up having to wipe the floor down with a damp cloth to get the small dust (which with dark floors show every speck)

  110. Elis Brockway says:

    Hard to reach dirt under furniture.

  111. Barbara Allain says:

    My biggest challenge with my current vacuum is the fact that it is central vac and cumbersome to carry along. Besides, it is not very efficient and not enough suction. I would welcome a Dyson.

  112. Elizabeth Vlug says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is first finding the right bags and then changing them. What a PIA!! More dirt goes flying everywhere!!!

  113. My Electrolux bullet vacuum cleaner was built many many decades ago. It is awkward and difficult to manouevre on to clean the carpet on my interior stairs. In addition, its power head regularly gets tangled in area carpet edges. My back issues are exacerbated with use of this mid-century wonder. Thanks for the chance.

  114. Debbie WhiteBeattie says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is it doesn’t pick up the pet hair like it should be.

  115. It is not very powerful and has poor sucking power.

  116. Tina L. says:

    My biggest frustration with your current vacuum is it doesn’t clean that well. I have to go over areas a few times to get it clean.

  117. tabitha says:

    my complaint is about dog hair. it alll collects at the top of the vacuum.

  118. Stephen Chin says:

    The worst thing about most vacuums are the bags… changing the bag requires another vacuum to clean up the mess… #awful

  119. Christina D says:

    A combination of things.. it’s heavy, loud and it’s losing suction so I have to vacuum much longer then I’d like and it’s older so I know it’s not picking up dust and dander which is important as my daughter has many sensitives and my son has allergies!

  120. HEIDI C. says:

    Ours is so old that the vacuum roller is wrapped in fluff and hair and fuzz which is impossible to get off and makes getting a good clean impossible.

  121. Shirley S says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it does not have enough suction power.

  122. Christopher Mason says:

    How poor the suction is.

  123. Debbie F says:

    My biggest frustration is the cord – I am always tripping on it. Another thing that I don’t like about my current vacuum is the weight of it.

  124. Its a bit of a struggle with the heaviness of the unit. This bulky unit would be better suited for a commercial application, not a small home. I find myself missing a few areas and crevices because of the bulk.

  125. It just doesn’t clean as well as I want it to!

  126. My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it is not powerful enough. My sister has a Dyson and their carpet looks clean every time I visit. Maybe it’s because we have a dog, but a good vacuum should be able to handle that – ours definitely doesn’t. I spend a lot of time vacuuming because i have to vacuum a room over and over again- I can never just do a once-over.

  127. mongupp says:

    My big problem is that the central vacuum in my home does not work! Boo!

  128. Angelica De La Rosa says:

    It’s so stinkin’ heavy. Lugging it around from room to room, and carrying it up the stairs is a workout in itself. Not to mention that it sounds like fighter jet engines when I turn the thing on! Lol

  129. Andrea Amy says:

    My vacuum is big and bulky and difficult for me to use especially on the stairs. It works good, but I would love something that is easier to handle.

  130. Tannis W says:

    My vacuum is a hand me down that is old, heavy and has awful suction. It is a huge beast that doesn’t fit well under objects, so half my house doesn’t even get vacuumed. I so could use a new vacuum cleaner!

  131. Jennifer P. says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it is hard to manoeuver – it’s heavy, and awkward, so doing the stairs is a pain, and getting into smaller spaces is difficult (e.g. under the table, between furniture pieces).

  132. Karry Knisley says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that I don’t have one. I am currently sweeping my steps to try and get the dog hair off and it takes a good hour.

  133. lori butler says:

    my biggest frustration is lugging it around and doing my stairs

  134. Brenda Penton says:

    My biggest frustration is doing the hard floors and having it toss dirt around rather than suck it up.

  135. My biggest frustration is that it does not have great sucking power, I feel like the carpets are never thoroughly cleaned.

  136. Brad Kinchen says:

    It is losing suction as it gets older and takes longer to do a decent job.

  137. Julie F says:

    My current vacuum is so heavy and I find it very difficult to turn!

  138. Seema Dukharan says:

    I need a Dyson because all other vacuums don’t have the suction and are heavy and clunky #othervacuumsdontsuck

    I need this! Our dog has fine white hair (papillion) and it gets embedded in our living room rug. I get very frustrated cleaning it with our current vacuum, but it sounds like you have a great solution for me!

  140. My vacuum is over 10 years old . My frustration is that it doesn’t pick up as it used to, I hate changing bags and definitely don’t like how heavy it is

  141. Amy Saunders says:

    I have many pets and 4 kids my frustration is that our vacuums only last about 6 months bafore the smell of dog starts to take over the filtration system and it never goes away.

  142. Lee-AnnWebber says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is how it “spits” pieces of bebris out the back of the machine, at my feet. It’s ok on my area rugs (2) but not on my hardwood and ceramics. I have to sweep or swiffer the floor first and then pick it all up with the hose which is a pain and takes longer. I clean houses for a living (own a biz) the less stress on cleaning my own home the better.

  143. Biggest issue I have with my current Vacuum is that the Beater Bar just tosses the dirt around, instead of sucking it up! I have Carpet and Tile and it is no fun having to adjust the height all the time.
    Also, pet hair and the Collection Bin always clogging up.

  144. My biggest issue is those nasty dirt trails my current vacuum leaves behind! I usually have to sweep the floor right after vacuuming. Its very frustrating and annoying because my bulky vacuum does not maneuver around the house easily making cleaning very difficult and tiresome.

  145. Kristi F says:

    I have a canister vacuum with a bag and the biggest issue is the bags wanting to explode! Not fun to clean up the vacuum and all the mess inside.

  146. mine is heavy and clunky. i need to get one that’s lightweight

  147. Tracy Snider says:

    So I have bought a new vacuum every 1 1/2 years now. Kind of silly on my part. All I can afford are the cheaper vacuums so this explains why this is happening. I now have a Dirt Devil vacuum. If you could hear this thing you would put ear plugs in. It is so loud. Honestly. I have to take the compressor and blow it out after every second use because it looser auction. Living with three boys, two dogs ( yellow lab and golden retriever ) and a cat, I need my vacuum to have suction . This Dyson would mean heaven for me on a cleaning note.

  148. My biggest frustration is that there is no where to attach (store) even one tool to the vacuum. Whenever I need it, I have to go looking for it. Most of the time, I can’t find it when I need it!

  149. Nicole King says:

    I have 7 kids and a husband! I need a really good Vacuum! This would be it.

  150. kathryn says:

    my mum needs one.
    She lost the charger for hers (not that the suction was ever good on it)

  151. kathy downey says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is it’s way too heavy and not picking up the cat hair !!

  152. Tara Betterley says:

    My biggest frustration is being able to get it the head into places. It is heavy and very bulky. I need something that can be easily picked up – and something that I can move from carpet to hardwood flooring/tile without changing heads.

  153. Jennifer Cetoute says:

    My frustration is that it does not pick up al the dog hair! I swear I could vacuum multiple times and still it’s left behind.

  154. It’s old, large and heavy! Not stair friendly

  155. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    My problems are that my present vacuum isn’t a Dyson and it’s big, heavy and unmovable, not to mention that the suction’s not the best (that would be a Dyson 🙂 ). Mine I daren’t use on the stairs as I can’t maneuver it properly and have a fear of falling down the stairs and at my age that could mean broken bones and I do want to suffer from post concussion syndrome ever again either.

  156. Fussy Cat says:

    It doesn’t have enough power to remove all the dirt and lint on my carpets.

  157. My biggest frustration with my current vac is it doesn’t SUCK, and therefore, it sucks. We would love to experience Dyson clean!

  158. Shannon says:

    The suction isn’t the greatest and it is a chore in itself lugging it up and down the stairs!

  159. My current vacuum is very old and bulky. The wheels are seized on it making impossible to move across carpet. The floors get scratched if I don’t pick it up to move it. The powerhead shorted out so it doesn’t work anymore. I NEED A NEW VACUUM!

  160. Kim Coleman says:

    my biggest problem with my current vacuum is that it died 3 days ago 🙁 Currently trying to decide on a new one.

  161. Gail Butler says:

    My old one died, so I replaced it. Could not afford to spend a lot of money so bought one on sale that was $100 off and came to $99. It does an ok job, but certainly does not get all the dog hair, is heavy, not great on stairs. I watched my daughter use her Dyson yesterday and am so jealous. This would be an amazing for a senior citizen like me! Thanks for the opportunity! I need a vacuum that SUCKS!

  162. Nancy Derrick says:

    Rescued a beautiful Alaskan Malamute a few months ago….Malamutes blow their coat twice a year! Of course the first one happened right at the same time my central vac died, and as a single Mom, I cannot afford to fix it at the moment. I need a Dyson animal vacuum so I don’t lose my sanity (or have to give up the dog!). Thanks for this opportunity.

  163. Julie Durfee says:

    My vacuum doesn’t pick up pet hair very well.

  164. Cheryl Grandy says:

    My biggest frustration with my vacuum is that it doesn’t get all the cat hair off my rugs and upholstery, even if I go over and over the same spot.

  165. Heather Manser says:

    We have 4 rescue animals, 2 mutts and 2 cats. (190 lbs total) …everything is covered in fur. I vacuum every day and the vacuum I have just doesn’t dig deep enough. It also has a vacuum bag which with the amount of hair it does pick up I’m tired of constantly changing. We need a better vacuum that deals with all the fur and dirt our fur babies bring in 🙂

  166. My vacuum is a good named Brand cordless, but it constantly needs cleaning out in the air where the dirt, and stringy things go, the brush bars I call them. My husband helps me out and gets the scissors and cuts the nasty stuff out, we have to do this every week. It’s very annoying and I’d love a chance to win this vacuum. I need a change for sure!

  167. Its just old hose is cracked, could really use a new one!

  168. My vaccum seems to spit out more that it sucks up. I hate rolling over something & expect it to be sucked up but see it shoot out & pelt my foot instead. I always have to pull out the broom after.
    Also, now that I have big open stairs, my clunky vaccum just doesn’t fit well to pull up or go down the steps for fear I’ll be pulled down with it. My stairs are always a mess.
    Having a light-weight, smaller device with good suction would solve all my vaccum problems.
    -Cory U

  169. Linda DeMunck says:

    Vacuum bags that rip and tear, belts that break, you can’t repair, hoses that crack or just won’t suck and for the stairs you’re out of luck. I want a vacuum I can rely, not one that is going to die. The right equipment for a job makes life much easier!

  170. Juliee Fitze says:

    My biggest problem is the weight of the vacuum cleaner when trying to do the stairs.

  171. My biggest frustration is that I do not seem to be cleaning, just simply fluffing up the carpet! It fools the eye, because we’ve got those vacuum-cleaner marks, but it can’t fool me!

  172. tracy k says:

    it’s old and clunky and doesn’t clean very well.

  173. my biggest frustration is the hair around the beater brush – i own a first generation dyson and it is still going after nearly 15 yrs ! It have had to replace a few things, but it may be almost time to retire her, but I hate too.

  174. Jo-Anne Bougie says:

    I would love to win this for my mother.. She’s always wanted one..

  175. Trisha Pedros says:

    Awesome could use a Dyson!!

  176. Omg….it’s the grooves in the kitchen tiles I hate!! & Going from carpet to floor to tiles so frustrating!!

  177. Jenny Major says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it does not pick up all the dirt

  178. The suction on my vaccuum sucks… and not in the way I want it to!

  179. Dorothy H says:

    The biggest frustration is human and cat hair.

  180. Rosa Cross says:

    My present vacuum does not have much suction power. Some of the dirt stays behind.

  181. Kim Tanti says:

    My current vacuum is so weak I have to keep going over the same spot over and over again.

  182. My biggest frustration with my vacuum is the motor keeps burning out when it’s suction gets clogged.

  183. Vivian Dionne says:

    My current vaccuum does not have enough suction; I always have to go back and forth on the same spot to pick up the simplest things.

  184. Loretta says:

    My biggest problem is my vacuum doesn’t suck.

  185. Have pets so I wear out the vacuum. Hate spending the money to replace it all the time.

  186. my current vacuum is over 10 years old and was a cheap “temporary” vacuum when we got our home. It barely sucks, so it really sucks and it’s time to get a real vacuum that can get up all our pets fur!

  187. Doreen Lamoureux says:

    It shoots dirt down at my feet. What’s that all about? lol

  188. Mary Hogan says:

    Just moved to Canada. Had to leave my old Dyson in Dublin, Ireland. Need a hoover as my floors are in bits. Thanks for the compo. Great Prize

  189. Our current vacuum is so loud that it scares the dogs, and us too, really.

  190. Jennifer Kitt says:

    Mine doesn’t pick up cat hair. It just pushes it into the carpet. I have 2 white Persians and it’s like living in a snow globe lol

  191. Melanie Cooper says:

    biggest problem with my current vac is it clogs and it gets frustrating

  192. Sylvia Reddom says:

    My biggest vacuum frustration is not with the equipment but the part-time operator – me — I can never remember quickly (like when company is enroute NOW) where I put the vacuum bags (old style machine)…never ever use those machines without a bag !!! If you do you will never do it again! 😉 Thanks for the contest!

  193. My current vacuum currently is broken and I am hand picking the crumbs off the floor!!! This would be great to get I’ve been saving for a dyson as I hear they are amazing! Plus would be better to use a dyson then hand picking crumbs haha with two little boys you can only imagine the crumbs that we have!!

  194. Lilly Kavanagh says:

    My biggest problem is that our vacuum is losing its suction power since we have a dog and I vacuum twice a week to suck up all his fur.

  195. KellyPC says:

    Our current vacuum sucks because it doesn’t suck!

  196. Central vacuum sucks! You have to lug a hose around and need to be close to the outlet. The attachments break!

  197. Courtney says:

    My vacuum frustrates me because it’s SO loud. It makes weird noises because it’s so old and doesn’t have the greatest suction

  198. Linda Svarovsky says:

    Biggest frustration is getting pet hair off carpets

  199. Brenda Haines says:

    I hate how fast it can get plugged up! Thanks for the chance!

  200. Linda G says:

    It does not pick up the dust along the edges of the baseboards and dust balls collect on the carpet.

  201. Our current vacuum doesn’t transition between different floor types (we have 3) and it doesn’t suck up all the cat hair, dog hair and kids mess!

    Besos Sarah.

  202. Lindsey Policelli says:

    Ugh I have central vac but the hose is huge, the actual vacuum is super heavy and there’s a million attachments. Due to its size it’s kept in the basement and I need to make three trips down the stairs and back up just to get all the pieces, very frustrating!! The suction on it is mediocre at best and our dogs short hair is usually trapped everywhere still.

  203. Deborah Scott says:

    Where do I start? I bought it specifically for the pet hair cleaning on thr stairs as it specified it was “thr best in the pet business”. The suction was great for awhile & now it is horrible and leaves a trail of fur.

  204. Nicole Zerbini says:

    I hate how heavy it is! Having 3 floors….carrying that thing up and down 2 flights of stairs is a total body workout!

  205. I have trouble catching all the stray animal fluff floating around my home, which causes these cat and dog hair tumbleweeds breezing around even after I finish vacuuming!

  206. KellieRose Wilson says:

    My vaccuum does not pick up all dirt and I have to go over the same spot over and over! 🙁

  207. Kayte CookWatts says:

    Our current vac is about to die and we have cat allergies (and a cat hahaha)

  208. Krista M says:

    My current vacuum is simply too heavy and doesn’t have any maneuverability. The suction power is also lacking & I would love to have a Dyson Big Ball Animal 2!

  209. Lorena Grande says:

    My biggest frustration is it is 30 years old….I’ve actually got 2 vaccums pieced together!…A shop vac handle as it’s lighter than pushing the heavy one, on my curvy back. 🙂

  210. Ruby BB says:

    I feel so could vacuum til the cows come home & still I would not do a great job of getting all the dog hair!

  211. Arlyse W. says:

    My current Vacuum doesn’t have a hose function. Also it is my partners’ vacuum and he has never had to deal with as much hair everywhere now that we live together. Please help 🙂

  212. Bernice says:

    mine is that it broke and duct tape won’t fix it , its broken on the hose bending part , and it sucks , with a house full there is always crumbs and its easier to vacuum

  213. Piroska says:

    My biggest frustration is that it doesn’t suck properly, especially all the dog hair. With 4 dogs, my vacuums get put through the wringer!

  214. Maritess says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is its weight and long hose. I also don’t like that it is hard to move it around especially on tight spaces.

  215. Jan Kong says:

    Hair gets wrapped around and around the brush roller until I have to cut it off.

  216. Basically dittoing everyone here when I say – the hair! My hair, the dogs hair all of the hair!

  217. Jodi Mitrovic says:

    My current vacuum is big and bulky and the suction hose has lost it’s suck so stairs are next to impossible now! I still use bags which are dirty and expensive! Thank you for the awesome review and giveaway! Good luck all!

  218. Christina D says:

    It doesn’t suck up everything because the cord was accidentally stepped on.

  219. Jessica eapen says:

    What is my biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it doesn’t pick up hair well and I shed a lot!

  220. Kathleen B says:

    I hate the hose. It is always getting caught on something or knocking things over.

  221. Charlene Blackwell says:

    Animal hair seems to be resistant to most vacuums, and mine isn’t up for the job, to get a thorough enough of an outcome as I’d like.

  222. Michelle L says:

    My vacuum isnt powerful anymore and way too old.

  223. Sarah H says:

    Lack of suction.

  224. Wanda Macsween says:

    My biggest frustration is that my vacuum doesn’t seem to have enough suction.

  225. Samantha Taylor says:

    Our vacuum no longer has spin and so you have to drag it backwards along the carpet. It is a connection issue so fixing the belt will not help. It no longer picks up hair and it leaves our house dirty.

  226. My biggest issue is dealing with the bulky old vacuum cleaner on stairs. The cord doesn’t reach all the way up and the canister falls over……..

  227. Amanda Z says:

    My issue is that the canister is always blowing air out the back, and the tumbleweeds of cat hair that I haven’t gotten to yet end up blowing all around the house. Not cool vacuum. You’re supposed to be helping me clean, not making more of a mess!

  228. melissa sprenkle says:

    My dog and cat hair are hard for me to keep up with. I have lung disease, so this looks easy and light to use while using oxygen on my back!! Very cool

  229. melissa marie says:

    My current vacuum keeps clogging and loses suction 🙁

  230. Tiffany Rotulo says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it loses suction quickly.

  231. Sunshine G says:

    The cord is far too short, and I can’t make it around the whole downstairs without unplugging it at least once.

  232. My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it gets clogged. I am about to throw it off of my second story deck! it drives me nuts.

  233. my vacuum is broken and I just can’t replace it right now, this would be super sweet to win thank you for the contest

  234. My current frustration with my vacuum is that it doesn’t have the sucking power like it used to have.

  235. My frustration with my current vacuum is that I’ve broken it a few times and it’s not functioning at 100%.

  236. Doris Humber says:

    My biggest frustration is my vacuum doesn’t pick up the dirt. It’s so old that it barely functions.

  237. Janice Cournoyer says:

    I have central vac and the hose does not reach to all areas of the house. So frustrating.

  238. Erin McSweeney says:

    trying to get out the piece out that allows me to do baseboards its so annoying

  239. ALICE SPENCE says:

    My BIGGEST FRUSTRATION is my current vacuum cannot keep up with the dog hair and debris left by 4 GOLDEN RETRIEVERS AND 2 CATS. I WOULD NEED THE VERY BEST VACUUM to be able to keep up with the flying fur. To me that means a DYSON! SOS I NEED HELP !!

  240. Mariyn Legault says:

    My vacuum is too heavy and losing its suction.

  241. BobbiJo Pentney says:

    My Vacuum does not get the fur off of my carpet

  242. Stephanie Kench says:

    15 Ferguson Ave

  243. Stephanie Kench says:

    Need anew vacuum so bad …..the one we have barely dies the job, would love to win this

  244. mohammad anjum says:

    biggest frustration is the lack of suction power.

  245. Karla Sceviour says:

    My current vacuum is just a little stick vaccum and it does not work well at all on my living room rug!

  246. i have a dyson and i love it but its getting old and also its not the pet one andi have two cats

  247. Lisa Chambers says:

    My biggest problem with my current vacuum is that it’s so heavy! I was recently hit by a truck while walking across a 4 lane street so it’s very difficult and awkward to move around! It’s also now spotting dirt out and barely any suction!

  248. Travelbuds says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is doing the stairs. The hose isn’t long enough so I have to lug my vacuum up the stairs while I vacuum.

  249. Dianne G. says:

    My current vacuum does not clean well along the walls and under the furniture and the belt on the brush breaks all the time and is difficult to change.

  250. Heather Liddycoat says:

    My vacuum has died a few times and I’m worried I’m going to lose it for good soon

  251. Lisa McLain says:

    My vacuum is so old it wont suck properly and never gets all the dirt ! I am in desperate need of a new one ! thanks for the chance

  252. Laura Patrick says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that when I drag it around the house the hose becomes disconnected so after vacuuming an area of about 3 feet I have to pick it up and carry it so I can do another 3 feet…….sooooooo frustrating.

  253. Carole D. says:

    The batery life of my Dyson V6 doesn’t last long enough! I love it, but I can’t do the whole house. The Dyson Big Ball Animal 2 would be a nice addition to my house. It would also pick up all the Pug hair.

  254. Carrie Conrad says:

    My biggest problem with my current vac, is that it does not suck up pet hair. Its a daily struggle.

  255. sara rai says:

    For some reason, my vacuum just smells bad. I need to replace it. Not sure if my mom washed the bag:(.

  256. Valerie Mallette says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is that it’s just not powerful enough. It doesn’t pick up all the dirt, cat hair and mess that I try to clean.

  257. My biggest frustration is just that it’s getting old and doesn’t work as well.

  258. Anu Chopra says:

    My biggest frustration with my current vacuum is the lack of suction and it’s very heavy and not that easy to maneuvre.

  259. Maurice says:

    The biggest frustration with mine is that it still leaves dirt behind and this will give me an opportunity to own this dyson that i’ve heard so much about.

  260. Kirsty Connor says:

    Cat hair and trapped smells in my hoover!
