A few times a year Vax releases discounted vacuum cleaners, steam mops and other cleaning products with slightly damaged boxes on a special site that you can’t access without a code. This time it’s offering up to 80% off and we've blagged MoneySavers a code, MSE14, which gives access to the site first.
This means you can hoover up the best bargains before everyone else gets access on Thursday.
There have been similar incarnations of this deal and feedback from users has been good, with forumites saying they could barely see a dent in the cardboard box. Vax has assured us the damage is minimal (a scratch or a tear on the box, for example) and that the items themselves are brand new and in working order. They’re not refurbished models.
One forumite who purchased a Vax in one of the previous sales said: "I bought a steam cleaner which was fab, and was very pleased with the money I paid for it."
How to access the deal
1. Go to the Vax sale website*
2. Enter the code MSE14 before 5pm on Mon 3 Nov. Delivery's £4.99.
From midday, Thu 30 Oct, the site will be accessible to everyone else until 5pm, Mon 3 Nov with a special code, but you may as well use ours as it’s valid the whole time.
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 might not always be 80%.
The sale includes:
Most come with either a two-year or six-year warranty. Maximum two machines per person.
If your product is faulty, you still have your usual consumer rights, as explained in Martin’s Sale of Goods Act 1979 blog. But you won’t be able to return the item on the basis the box is damaged. However, the distance selling regulations mean you have 14 days to return anything bought online, even if you’ve just changed your mind.
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
