Vax logoVax up to 80% off*MSE Blagged code to access sale early. 100+ vacuums & more

2 days left

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:

  • Vax Air3 compact upright vacuum cleaner for £63, was £230. Next cheapest we've found: £115 at John Lewis
  • Vax Mach Air Total home cylinder vacuum cleaner  for £80, was £280. Next cheapest we've found: £280 at John Lewis
  • Vax steam mop for £20, was £100. Next cheapest we've found: £25 at Direct Vacuums (refurbished model)
  • Vax Floormate Trio hard floor cleaner for £80, was £220. Next cheapest we've found: £220 at Amazon

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.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help Vax
