Testing Out the Eureka AirSpeed ABS Vacuum Cleaner {Giveaway}

Vacuums are one of those appliances you use several times a week – well, at least you probably try to, right? With so much use, they can easily break down. I know that in the eight years we’ve been married, my husband and I have gone through four vacuums. I’m not sure if this is the same for the average person or if we just have really, really bad luck with vacuums, but that’s the reality of it for us – four vacuums in eight years.

When we were recently offered the opportunity to review and giveaway a new Eureka AirSpeed ABS vacuum cleaner, I accepted knowing that many of you could probably use a new vacuum. Since we aren’t in need of a new vacuum at this time, I offered the review unit to my brother and his family to test it out. Here’s what they had to say about it:

  • The weight is convenient since it allows for more flexibility to move around.
  • It has more power than others and vacuums one area with just one sweep.
  • The attachments work better than other vacuums since you can disable the main bottom portion and redirect all the suction power to the attachment.
  • It is very easy to change the bag.
  • They appreciated the fact that the instructions come in both English and Spanish.

A couple of more details about the Eureka AirSpeed ABS, as provided to me, include:

  • The Eureka AirSpeed ABS combines AirSpeed Technology with features of a bagged vacuum.
  • AirSpeed Technology uses two wide tubes with limited bends and turns, allowing more air to pass through the vacuum.
  • The direct air path from floor to dust cup decreases the distance for dirt to travel, which increases the amount of airflow for powerful suction.
  • Unlike other models in the AirSpeed line – all of which are bagless – AirSpeed ABS uses replaceable, disposable bags to capture dust and debris and completely contain dirt and allergens.
  • The Eureka AirSpeed ABS retails for $129.88 and can be found exclusively at Walmart. (Note: I’m a Walmart Moms member, however this is not a Walmart-sponsored post.)

Overall, my brother and his family found the Eureka AirSpeed vacuum to be efficient and do its job. Now, one of you can test it out for yourselves, as we’re giving one of these vacuums away!

We have 4 kids and 3 grandkids who track in a lot of dust and dirt! We have to buy a new vacuum every 3 years. I would love to win the Eureka AirSpeed ABS vacuum cleaner.

The last two ended up with a bad smell. Had to replace them in last 5 years.

Um, I don’t have a working vacuum cleaner right now, so clearly I don’t replace as often as I should!   I try to get away with sweeping. :)

I typically replace my vacuum every year or two. I have dogs, cats and birds and this old house gets dirty and beat up. Good luck to anyone who enters.

It seems like we are replacing them every year or to.  Because we have two little ones and a dog, we are constantly vacuuming.
