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!

It seems like every year to 18 months has been the norm, lately.  We’ve had a string of bad luck with vacuums.  Maybe this is the answer I need!  :)  glendasembree@gmail.com

Boy, I haven’t had a new vacuum in probably 20 years? I know that might sound crazy, but really I haven’t.  I think the one I have now was a hand me down many many years ago.

They usually last 3 years, but the last vacuum (which was pricey) only last 6 months.  What a rip!!  I would love to win a new vacuum cleaner.

I replace my vacuums about 3 yrs or if they die sooner.


22 Susan C October 8, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Every 20 years-at least that’s how long it took me to get a new one a few years ago. And it’s already wearing out.

My current vacuum is over 10 years old and it’s really time for it to be replaced.
