Vax logoVax up to 80% off clearance sale*Code to access sale. 100+ products incl £300 vacuum for £90

1 day left

A couple of times a year Vax* releases discounted vacuum cleaners, steam cleaners and other cleaning products with slightly damaged boxes on a special site you can’t access without a code.

This time it’s offering up to 80% off and we've blagged MoneySavers a code, MSE15, to get in. There are 108 products in the sale, including 18 accessory lines.

These deals have been extremely popular in the past and feedback has been very good (see below), with forumites saying they could barely see a dent in the box. Vax has assured us the damage is minimal (eg, a scratch or a tear on the box) and the items are brand new and in working order.

Most come with either a two-year or six-year warranty, the rest have a one-year guarantee. Maximum one order and two machines per household, although you can order accessories in addition.

How to access the deal

1. Go to the Vax sale website*
2. Enter the code MSE15 before 5pm on Mon 5 Oct. Delivery's £4.99.

It's worth noting that before the code is applied, Vax products aren't always the cheapest around, so while you'll still be saving a substantial amount, it won't always be 80%.

Decent savings in the sale include:

  • Vax C85-AC-PE air revolve cylinder vacuum cleaner for £89.99, was £299.99. Next cheapest we found: £270 at Debenhams.
  • Vax U86-AL-B cordless vacuum cleaner for £149.99, was £279.99. Next cheapest we found: £179 at
  • Vax AP02 air purifier for £69.99, was £149.99. Next cheapest we found: £135 at Debenhams.
  • Vax W86-DP-B dual power carpet cleaner for £59.99, was £179.99. Next cheapest we found: £79.99 at John Lewis.
  • Vax U86-AC-Be Air3 compact upright vacuum cleaner for £49.99, was £249.99. Next cheapest we found: £124 at John Lewis. SOLD OUT
  • Vax S3S+ steam cleaner for £29.99, was £99.99. Next cheapest we found: £39.99 at SOLD OUT

Feedback from MoneySavers on previous Vax deals:

"Ordered at 9:30am, delivered 11:57am the next day. Great deal, great service!"

"Saved £200 on a new hoover. Thought it too good to be true but it's not... amazing."

"Just got a £249.99 Vax upright for £54.98. Very happy with that - if you have to spend money on chores it might as well be a bargain!"

What if I have a problem with my product?

If your product is faulty, you have your usual consumer rights (see our consumer rights guide), but you won’t be able to return the item on the basis the box is damaged. However, the consumer contracts regulations give you 14 days to return anything bought online, even if you’ve just changed your mind.

If you do have any problems, email customer support on or call 03301 242 600.

River Island logoRiver Island: MoneySaving tips & tricksIncl keeping an eye on shop layouts & free Click & Collect


There are always ways to save money at River Island, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

Ways to save include:

  • Free Click & Collect. Every online purchase is eligible for free Click & Collect and there's no minimum spend required.  
  • Keep an eye on shop layouts and you could find out when a sale's coming up. Items are generally laid out by season's look in stores, but when a sale's coming, they're arranged into categories, eg, trousers and tops - if you're about to purchase and you notice a layout change, it could be worth waiting. 
  • Try haggling. We polled 2,518 MoneySavers to find out in which shops they had most success haggling. High street fashion retailers did feature, so it’s worth a go. Find out more in our Haggle on the High Street guide.
  • Check out similar retailers, eg, H&M and other fashion retailers. If you're not committed to buying from River Island, check out our deals from H&MNew LookAsosNextTopshopTopman and Zara, where there may be a better offer.

MSE Charlotte says:

Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead.

Our Local eBay Deals Mapper lets you find bargains if you're prepared to pick them up.

eBay sellers often specify items must be collected in person which means fewer bids.

But you can't normally search 'collection only' so put your postcode in and how far you're prepared to schlep and watch the gems pop up.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
