Daily Deals… No Thank YOU!

Okay, I get informed by big boss man yesterday, I would have to attend a product launch from a leading vacuum company last night. Grrrrrr… this would effect my hectic work schedule, but he informed me there would be an open bar and free food, two of my favorite things, so I was happy to go!

Just as I finished up my 11th piece of salmon and capping off my second bottle of red grape juice, I was informed by that said boss man, he wanted to “increase my duties” at the company…. :(

No… No… NOOOOOOOOO!!! I’ve worked hard to get to this point of slacker and he wants to ruin that with work? Before I could react, he asked me if I knew what a daily deal was. I tried to pretend my hearing aid battery was low, but he knew I had just replaced them, because we had a conversation about them a day before, as he suggested I should get rechargeable vacuum batteries to use in them (I said he was scary looking, never funny).

He wasn’t buying it, he told me I need to start a daily deal section of our website and everyday I would need to offer a new discounted vacuum deal. Needless to say, that third bottle of juice was finished off rather quickly. What could I do? I felt deceived, but no one else will hire me sit in a hammock and blog all day, so I’m left with no other choice, but to say… without further delay. Drum Roll Please…. Introducing GoVacuum Daily Deals!

Everyday yours truly will have one of the GoVacuum misfits rummage thru our warehouse and find a product we have too many of, then I’ll go ahead and write something witty about it and come up with a huge discount off the regular price (Woot rip off much?).

A lot of items we’ll take a loss on, but it’s better then paying rent stocking these items in our warehouse. Some items will be vacuum cleaners that are new in the box, some will be returned open box returns that are in like new condition with fully warranties, some might be robotic vacuums or whatever we might find in the warehouse!

The good news for you, our customers is you will have savings as high as 90% off the regular price! Just check our website everyday to see what’s being offered, but buy quickly and think later! Daily Deals will be limited in quantity and you have 30-60 days to return them and we even pay shipping both ways! Just buy the items and if you don’t like them return them, zero risk or cost to you! My theory is if enough people buy stuff to try it out then return it, our daily deals will make use loose so much money he will stop the daily deals and I can get back to slacking! :) The bad news for me, is now I currently have to work between Jerry Springer and Maurry… :(

Excludes Miele products. Think I can turn this in to a “weekly deal” instead? Have an idea about how I can get out of doing work? Email me: justin@govacuum.com

Go Bowling… Go Vacuum… Go Diet… Go Love…

I had an exhausting morning yesterday as I was recovering from my LaborDayAPalooza festivities. I woke up bloated and had a headache from all the food and stress I endured because of the remote control batteries. After laying in bed I decided to get up and exercise. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, why ruin a good start to the week by exercising after such an epic holiday on Monday?

You see, my good Facebook contest friends, LaborDayAPalooza is just one day per year, so for the other 364 ¼ days I do exercise each morning by speed walking to the mailbox at the end of the driveway (even on Sundays… what’s OCD?) and I maintain a healthy diet of processed genetically modified and unnaturally enriched foods, plus I use EdenPure Aqua 2000 filtered ice in most all my organic high-fructose corn syrup drinks, which after all is a vegetable! That’s right, only the healthiest of the healthiest for my palate will do.

Yes, these healthy lifestyle choices that I make is perhaps why I often get confused for Brad Pitt when I roam the local big box stores for savings in my fitted XXXL “WingMan” shirt.

Side note: oddly enough these mega mart stores are not as cheap as our little mega website GoVacuum.com. Oh no… let me stop before I start some shameless self promotion and tell you how we offer 60 day returns with free shipping both ways paid by us… oh well to late!

Nonetheless… after that great mailbox cardio and some fruit aka Apple Jacks Cereal a healthy part of this complete breakfast!

I took a shower and then started the day off talking to myself in the mirror like Gary Busey does.


I sat down in my nature inspired office and poured myself a glass of “grape juice”, I was ready to “work” but something was off… I couldn’t pin point it, and for no particular reason why, I was tired. I didn’t want to strain my eyes on the laptop screen, nor did I want my boss to have a workman’s compensation lawsuit from an attorney I could find on a day time television ad, so I did the responsible thing and went back inside to rest my eyes.

After about seven hours of self inflicted eye rejuvenation and relaxation management therapy, I deemed myself healthy enough to get to work. So… I took my lunch break, two hours later I was ready to write the GoVacuum blog, but I was still stressed due to my long work hours. It then hit me like a Sebo Airbelt K3 canister vacuum falling down the stairs. I needed a change of pace and scenery, so I decided to go in to the GoVacuum World Wide Headquarters in Chantilly, VA.

Upon my arrival at 6:00pm I was informed that due to the recent success of our 10% off site wide GoVacuum coupon that can be used on most everything excluding Miele, Sebo and IQ Air. A few of the vacuum geniuses (kind of like an Apple Genius, but for vacuums not computers) at GoVacuum were having a bowling night on the websites dime.

I immediately questioned each and every single GoVacuum vacuum genius! How is it, I was not informed of this social company gathering? Is the beloved blogger loved by anyone anymore? Did I even ever mean anything at all to her (I mean the GoVacuum geniuses)? I felt heartbroken and much like the great comedian Rodney Dangerfeld… apparently, I get no respect! =(


Just as I was starting to click my heels and recite that there’s no place like home, Mike the friendly senior sales and customer service manager who had just helped inform a customer on how to replace a vacuum belt in her Kirby upright vacuum, told me something that even my deaf right ear heard loud and clear. “Justin, Buddy… sorry this was not written up in an email, it’s an improvised thing, you’re more then welcome to come along!”

As my goofy grin expanded, and my eyes lit up like Rodneys, the rest of the geniuses chimed in and with open arms and invited me to tag along on this exclusive event. ALRIGHT! I was gonna go bowling for the second time in 15 years.

After 5-10 minutes of grueling office work, we left for the great GoVacuum bowling extravaganza! I need to point out some troopers still held the fort down while I was attempting to bowl in the double digits and that’s not only because we have the greatest vacuum industry personnel working at GoVacuum, even though we do. Nope, it’s because of the extended hours. That’s right all the chat and toll-free telephone lines are open from 8am-10pm EST Monday- Saturday plus 11am-10pm on Sunday.

Needless to say we had a blast, Mike bowled well and the rest… well… they did better then me! Plus they didn’t make fun of me… at least not to my face. After a few frames we all hurried home, tucked ourselves in the bed and had dreams of sweet Oreck xlpro6a back pack vacuums… (OKAY! That last one is untrue… I was dreaming of a mystical girl who broke my heart, I mean the mystical Miele Capricorn canister vacuum cleaner with seb236).

Did you laugh? Share our blog with your friends on Facebook or tweet it! GoVacuum blog is at www.govacuum.us! Have a comment, wanna tell me your bowling score average? Anything just email me so I look busy! justin@govacuum.com

Win A Robot That Will Clean Your Home! GoVacuum!

“I don’t wanna hear how tired you are! Go get the heavy Kirby upright vacuum cleaner and GOVACUUM!”

Ever had a bad day and scream that at your kid, husband or wife? We hope not… well, we always encourage telling someone to GoVacuum! We just hope you exclaim this in a happy, jokingly manner.

What if you lived in a house where you walked in the door after a hard day of work and your home was clean, without having to ever vacuum? What if you still knew how to party and could do what you really loved for a living… like blog about vacuums? What if I didn’t try to shamelessly self promote the term GoVacuum!? Well… like my boy Wayne from Wayne’s World says… it might happen.

Seriously, my party time, excellent, friends… It might happen! I can’t assure you, you’ll love your job, but I can assure you, you may never have to vacuum again! How? By doing absolutely nothing, that’s how (well, almost nothing)!

Yes, much like I’ll be doing tomorrow on Labor Day to celebrate LaborDayAPalooza (read this blog again on Tuesday, so you will understand), you don’t have to do much! That’s because we at Govacuum not only rock like Wayne and Garth because we offer the best Miele vacuum reviews on our website and free shipping with 60 days returns (shameless ain’t I?), but because we are having a contest!

A contest that requires no purchase! Yeah, we know that’s the law and all, but that’s not why we’re not requiring you to not buy anything to enter. Nope, we are just good people like that! Seriously! All the owner wants me to do is sign up people for our newsletter that’s filled with GoVacuum money saving coupons, sales, savings and my random goofy ramblings.

What? You don’t find me funny? Ummmmmm… Okay… well… this is a bit of an awkward turtle…

Fine then! Don’t sign up for our money saving newsletter… just like us on Facebook and you will be entered to win as well! Better yet, do both and DOUBLE your chance to win!

What are you winning? Well, what do you expect based off what I said? A vacuum that cleans your home on its own? Is this a parallel universe where vacuums clean your home on their own?

Before I answer that, just be thankful, you’re not Jerry O’connell and not because your lackluster acting career is all but stagnant, but because you’re not stuck trying to find your way home sliding from parallel Earth to parallel Earth like he was in Sliders.

Once entered you will be qualified to win a Irobot Roomba 560! Which in my opinion is far cooler then R2-D2! While the Roomba 560 is nothing out of Star Wars, it sure is sweet and fun to watch!

The Irobot Roomba 560 will run all day while you’re at work to vacuum your hardwood floors, tile, laminate, area rugs, carpeting and most all other flooring surfaces.

Just sign up for our GoVacuum newsletter or like us on Facebook and… VaVoom! You’re instantly entered to win! =)

We’ll make sure to have this to your home by the holidays so Santa won’t have to bring you an Irobot Roomba 560 if you’re our grand prize winner!

What? You want to buy a Roomba 560 now? Well… OK, we will allow you to buy a Roomba 560 now or the Roomba 440, whichever your prefer… see I told you we’re nice people!

Yes, we got so carried away with this contest we even had Santa and one of his taller elves film a commercial for us (I hope Santa keeps his job, I don’t envision acting as a full time career for the jolly guy).

To read more about this Roomba 560 contest we are orchestrating click here. Until you win or buy your very own Roomba 560GoVacuum!!!

Want to read more of my mindless vacuum chatter? Go to GoVacuum.us

Do you have a idea? I sure would like to hear it! Like, please… I’m begging you! If you don’t email me, I can’t look busy, if I don’t look busy, I’ll have to fix vacuums broken Dyson vacuums and they are always breaking and hard to repair! So… help me out! justin@govacuum.com

Extremely Rare Kirby Split Second Cordless Hand Vacuum

One of our customers emailed us today with a very rare, hard to find Kirby Split Second Cordless Hand Vacuum, that attaches to the Kirby Heritage II Upright. They made this special accessory which plugs into a car or truck cigarette lighter, and mounted to the front of the Kirby Heritage II.

This is an incredible find, especially with the original box, and in near pristine condition. This is certainly a trophy for any vacuum collector out there, especially one that also has a Heritage II upright that looks Brand New!

Had to share this amazing find;

How to Replace a Belt on a Kirby Generation Vacuum Cleaner – GoVacuum Video Series

Kirby Vacuums are durable machines with powerful cleaning capabilities. Few vacuums can compete with the variety of features on the machine, a fact that the Kirby salesman at your house did not fail to tell you at least 10 times.

What the Kirby salesman might have left out of his sales pitch, however, was an explanation of how difficult it would be for you to do your first belt repair on your new Kirby Generation. Even the most experienced repairmen on the GoVacuum team will admit that replacing the belt on the Kirby is one of the most difficult repairs they face.

As a result, we’ve decided to create a video showing you how to make this Kirby Generation vacuum belt repair yourself.

We go step-by-step through the process of dismantling the powerhead and swapping out the belts on the rollerbrush. And we even give helpful advice on how to properly maintain your Kirby machine along the way.
