GoVacuum.com has just introduced a new Android App, which you can access and download in the Google Play market.
We wanted to ensure that when you’re standing in line waiting for your sandwich to be made, why not open up the GoVacuum app and watch this video where I play Santa.
Or, if you’re like me and just had a baby, there is even a Govacuum “vacuuming white noise” video that you can play at that wonderful hour of 4am, your wife has mistakenly had pizza as her last meal (tomatoes don’t make babies happy), proceeded to breastfeed – and now you’re pulling out all stops to try to soothe that baby to sleep. Our app will be your shrine if that happens!
The new GoVacuum.com Android App. allows access to huge savings!!!!
Just go under the coupon section to view the different coupon codes available to be used on our GoVacuum.com website.
After saving big on our GoVacuum.com website, and/or exploring our huge library of comparison videos, reviews, how to’s, and well, holiday videos; guess what? You can be even more saturated with vacuum info and updates by viewing our tweets via the twitter tab or our Facebook deals via the more tab.
There is no end to how knowledgeable you will become about vacuums after downloading this FREE app from the Google Play Store on your phone or tablet. It may even seem silly now but when that “piece of crap” vacuum you bought from your local box store dies on you after the 3rd time of you buying a new one, a rush of thankfulness will come over you, an inner peace if you will, knowing now you’re equipped with the knowledge and savings to choose the right vacuum the next time around.
This is my first blog post for GoVacuum.com, how did I do? Email me! Michaelodell@govacuum.com
Way back in 1999, Vacuum Unlimited broke new ground in the industry by starting a little retirement project for the owner called GoVacuum.com. It was one of the first e-commerce websites for vacuum bags, belts, parts and new vacuum cleaners. Fast forward 13 years later and we are still breaking new ground in the vacuum industry and the owner is far from retirement!
Take AskGoVacuum.com for example, a revolutionary new website that’s been in development and BETA mode for the last 4 years, which we’ve officially launched. At AskGovacuum.com anyone can post their vacuum related questions and the vacuum experts at GoVacuum will answer within 24 hours, sometimes we’ll even film a video answering your questions. This is a 100% free service which requires no purchase. Just visit AskGoVacuum.com, search for your question in the previous inquiries created by other users; if you don’t find your question or an answer already posted, just create an account and post any question about vacuum cleaners or air purifiers.
We answer any and all questions posted. Ask anything! From what vacuum would be best for your cleaning situation, how to install a belt, or even how to replace a Kirby vacuum cleaner transmission. No question is too easy or hard for us to answer! If you would like us to film a video giving you step by step instructions showing you how to repair your vacuum cleaner, just ask! 100% free of charge; no strings attached.
Another way we’re paving the way in the vacuum industry is with our selling platforms. We’ve been selling on Amazon now for several years and we’ve been able to utilize their selling and fulfillment services so much that not only have they chosen to do a case study on us, but Sachin Anand, the Director of Business Development, was recently interviewed by The Financial Times newspaper about our relationship with Amazon. He even appeared on the NPR radio show On Point to speak about it (fast forward to 19:45 to hear about him).
Yes, we’re making news for how we’ve reshaped the vacuum industry with Amazon, but we’ve also recently broke new ground in other marketplaces such as NewEgg.com, Sears.com, Buy.com and many others.
We’re proud to be at the forefront of the vacuum industry and always being among the most innovative entities on the market. So, what’s next? Is there a reality show in the works? Will we make our own vacuums soon? Will we conquer the world? Who knows? Check this blog often at GoVacuum.us to find out!
I’m going to start by stating the obvious, I’m not a smart man. Spend 3-2 minutes talking to me and you’ll realize this (or just wead this blog), but every so often I get hit in the head and a decent idea pops out. So with that intro, let me tell you about the Million dollar idea I recently had…
It was the wee hours of the morning. I was having the time of my life at a Washington, D.C. night club dancing with four very beautiful ladies and then, sadly, the dream ended. I woke up and realized it was 1:11am in the morning and I had to use the bathroom. As I turned on the lights, my eyes strained. All I could see was golden color lights for the first few seconds; so I quickly shut them off and took care of business. At that moment, it struck me like a freight train! GOLDEN VACUUM!
I rushed to turn the lights on! This time my eyes were fine. I washed my hands, splashed some water on my face, and went to flush the toilet. As I looked down to confirm I didn’t leave a puddle for the roommates, I saw a sign! The water in the toilet bowl was golden too (okay, it could just be I had started taking new multivitamins, but at the time I took it as a sign)! EUREKA! I’m a genius, which I announced to the whole house (although they felt otherwise at that moment)!
I booted up my laptop and got to work on the world’s first and only… Golden Vacuum Cleaner!
I help play my part at the leading internet retailer of vacuums, vacuum parts, air purifiers, and commercial cleaning products GoVacuum.com. So much so, creating something like this, unlike anything before, would require a lot of work, research, and development. After all, creating something for the person that literally has everything is no easy feat.
Fast forward about six months later. I have negotiated one of the world’s top gold plating companies in Kensington, Maryland, to handle the 24k gold plating. I had a top artist write a very catchy theme song for the golden tanned vacuum and I even lined up for engraving to be done if desired by the purchaser. Yes, you heard correct- The Gold GoVacuum GV62711 has its very own theme song (it’s a Million dollar vacuum, what else do you expect?)!
Understand, it takes a special kind of company to employ me. Fact of the matter is, the last time I walked in the GoVacuum office, was over six months ago (but it was an epic blog post . So that, coupled with this golden idea, made me assume it was fine to take a little break from work and still be able to just waltz back into the office last week, like nothing had ever happened and just start working again. Now that I’m back with all my “R&D” done, the time has come to unveil to the world one of the most mundane, utilitarian objects that I’ve transformed into one of the most exclusive items for sale on Earth.
I’m talking about the world’s most expensive vacuum cleaner, the 24k gold plated vacuum (yes, 24k gold plated) cleaner.
Does the gold serve any purpose here? Not even remotely, unless you count looking absolutely awesome as a purpose (I kind of do). This limited edition, one of a kind product is the ultimate in luxury. After all, the definition of luxury is, “purchasing something ridiculously extravagant just ‘cause”.
Now, unlike other companies that would expect a gold plated vacuum to only sit there and look pretty, I know that having a stunning yet still functional vacuum is key. This beauty is a commercial grade upright vacuum with a HEPA type paper bag system, to protect those delicate sinuses of yours. A 14” wide cleaning nozzle, which can help thoroughly vacuum the carpet in no time. Also, just in case you decide to give it a whirl, it only weighs a little over 15 pounds. This means you won’t be so tired after doing a quick cleaning between your maids schedules.
As most Billionaires will only buy something that’s custom and exclusive, we’ve made this a limited production vacuum cleaner. GoVacuum will limit production to only 100. Period. Nothing like this will ever be made again (because really, thousands of gold plated vacuum would be… excessive). Custom made, you can also have your gold plated vacuum cleaner engraved at no extra cost, and with optional attachments you can easily clean your 30-foot ceilings with ease.
Brand GoVacuum – Model Number GV62711 – UPC 60893974724
I had to wake up yesterday and head in to the GoVacuum office for a meeting. Uggggh, a Monday meeting… I loathe them, but this is usually a fun event with the misfits at GoVacuum as it was a brain storming session. These are great ways to start off the work week and the eclectic crowd of misfits I work with always keep the meetings fun and entertaining with their whacky ideas.
After the comical meeting was over boss man told me to stay in my seat, that he needed to have a word with me. Nooooooooo! Last time he “needed to have a word with me” he forced me to start a Daily Vacuum Deal and that takes a lot out of my leisure “work” schedule everyday!
I held back and once it was just he and I, he smiled and shook my hand. “I know what you did Justin… thank you”! I was frozen, stuck looking like a deer in headlights. I smiled back, “Your welcome, I thought you would like it”, I replied. I still had no idea what he was talking about, but I’m always one to take credit for something positive I didn’t do (Shameless, I don’t understand the meaning???).
At this point he pulls out the October 19th edition of The Wall Street Journal that contains an article about how homeowners can fix their own household appliances. They write what I’ve known for a long time… GoVacuum.com is the best place to buy all your vacuum parts and everything vacuum related!
I then had a real huge smile… so much so he snapped this goofy image of me with the paper!
I explained how I had been working on getting us in the newspaper for a few months and it was an endless back and forth with the reporter. I went into detail of how it was an idea I had while “working” at home. I was even able to incorporate how doing things like this to promote the website is why my workload might not allow me to run the Daily Deal Promotion every single day. He mulled it over for a moment and said, “Then you can run a weekend deal for Friday- Sunday and a daily deal during the other days”.
I gracefully accepted his offer. He was so happy with the publicity in The Wall Street Journal he even offered me have the rest of the day off! I took him up on this offer too!
I do have a confession to make… I had absolutely nothing to do with the article in The Wall Street Journal, but who am I to break his heart? He looked so happy and why should I ruin his joy and excitement? I’m just to caring to do such a thing!
Turns out, the writer for the newspaper found our website to be the most complete vacuum parts website that offers great phone support and discount prices and decided to include us in the article! While that is really flattering and awesome that GoVacuum.com is considered the best vacuum website in the country offering live chat and phone support 7 days a week and open till 10:00 PM EST all while maintaining the lowest prices and offering free shipping, but even more awesome is that yours truly gets the credit and got to watch the sun set while enjoying my Pandora radio station in my backyard. :)
Have a creative idea on news ways I can get out of working? Post a comment or email me email@example.com
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t you hate it when people go on and on about their new car, their new house and how they are so great? I don’t like it when people self gloat. After all isn’t it better for someone else to say how great you are? For something great you did?
Good thing this doesn’t apply to business and me… I’m about as shameless as they come. Your source for all things related to vacuum cleaners – GoVacuum hit a milestone today and I’m about to toot our horn.
I got a phone call from a giddy sounding co-worker who said we received something in the mail from Ebay and when he opened it he couldn’t believe his eyes!
I wake up every morning and know I work a long 1-2 hours per day for the greatest website (gloating) for all things vacuum and carpet cleaning related. We simply are the bees knees of the industry! I’m not the only one that thinks so, but YOU our customer’s think so as well!
While it might be distasteful in me telling you how great we are, don’t take my word, check out over 60,000 reviews on Amazon where we have a 99% positive rating or head over to Ebay where we have over 6,000 reviews with a 99.6% positive rating! That’s 996 happy customers per 1,000! (& I can’t even get a 2nd date in my personal life, go figure!) We’re so great Ebay decided to take notice and tell us.
We got a certificate signed by the President & CEO of Ebay saying we are excellent sellers and professional! While that last part may be disputable, one thing is for sure… we do truly care and try our best to make every single customer happy. Not just with offering 60 day returns and FREE shipping paid both ways, but by taking the time to chat and speak with every customer if they desire from 8am-10pm Monday – Friday and 11am-10pm on Sunday.
Yes… I’m shameless (maybe that’s the reason I’m a 1st date only pioneer), but when everyone is telling you, you’re great and they are so happy with your service that they start to tell their family and friends about it, pretty soon you would believe it too!
Congratulations to all the misfits at GoVacuum (including the few not pictured)!
Take a moment to pat yourself on the back, good job!

It didn’t start off great, because I spent my labor day laying on the couch with a broken remote control. Which meant I had a major decision to make… would I stay true to myself and my Labor Day pact that I wanted to enact (I’m a poet, don’t you know it?) or would I falter and not continue my yearly Labor Day ritual celebration also known as LaborDayAPalooza?
Yes, to kick off LaborDayAPalooza, I start off the day by reiterating my pact in the mirror at 1:00pm every Labor Day morning just as I crawl out of bed. It goes like this, “I Justin refuse to remove my frame from the forged position I’ve cratered in the couch over the course of these years, because today is my day, the day I enjoy the fruits of my hard labor and celebrate by doing absolutely nothing for the entire day… today is about me… Happy LaborDayAPalooza Justin”!
After this motivational speech to the man in the mirror, I immediately start to dance and shake my money maker like I’m in an original ipod commercial.
You may be wondering how can I pull off such a glorious accomplishment every year without getting interrupted and having it all fall apart? Obviously it’s not an easy feat but, let me explain the details.
It may be hard for everyone reading this vacuum blog to believe that a guy with the skill and ambition who can organize his very own LaborDayAPalooza is single, but it’s true… I know, shocking right? (Don’t worry ladies, I’m accepting applications… slow down, form a single file line please) On the bright side of being singular, I don’t have to worry about any of distractions brought on by family. Nope, no kids running around and no wife telling me to mow the lawn or vacuum the carpets with my Miele Capricorn canister vacuum cleaner. Yep, it’s just me and my remote… alone… again… for another year… LaborDayAPalooza! ROCK ON!
Nonetheless, all was well as I had carefully planned and was properly equipped with everything I needed, I got all set up and was ready… To my right I had a 2 liter of my favorite soft drink, to my left I had three foot long subs just waiting to be devoured. Next to them I had a cooler full of ice. In my hand I held a 103 button remote control that would make Tim The Tool Man Taylor grunt with envy.
All seemed well, so I kicked off the festivities. I got into position. The polyester couch caressed my skin and welcomed me back home, I turned on the 7 foot television, but just as I was ready to change the channel… Tragedy struck! My whole world got turned upside down! LaborDayAPalooza was in jeopardy!
My remote control had dead batteries! What the?!! %#(*^@!)$!!! Noooooooooooooooo!
I should have know better then to purchase the 103 button remote, why didn’t I buy the better 124 button model that uses rechargeable batteries that could easily be replaced just like a rechargeable vacuum has? Ahhhhhhhhh!!!
So, it was the moment of truth. What was I to do? I had to reflect on my life, examine where I was and question my self. Was it a easy path getting to this elite bachelor status? Had any of my friends ever achieved such great accomplishments? Forcing myself to ponder these deep thoughts made me have a moment of clarity…
It was at the moment I questioned life, its meaning, and who else besides me has pulled off 11 straight years of such greatness on Labor Day? Who else even had a LaborDayAPalooza besides old Justin? Was I gonna let 16 dead D batteries ruin my festivities? After all I had months of planning into this…
Now, before you prejudge me and my lazysusan that sits on each end table, please keep an open mind to the true genius behind this celebration! The 2 liter of soda was diet RC Cola, good luck finding that on a store shelf in 2011! The 3 subs are Jared’s favorite and had only 440 calories in each 6” half! The ice cubes in the cooler are purified by with the help of my EdenPURE Aqua 2000 Water Filtration System!
Yes! I think it’s pretty safe to say I live a active and healthy lifestyle all while living the LaborDayAPalooza dream! Which is why I couldn’t just abandon my brainchild event that represents freedom and rewards me for the labor I endure everyday of working at GoVacuum.com.
President Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!” While pondering his words, It was at this defining moment, I knew what I had to do.
I did what any true American man would do, not just for me, but for every true American man who is a LaborDayAPaloozaless family man… I did nothing… I sat there, but I enjoyed myself, because the channel I was on had on was playing a Rocky movie marathon, yes, all 6 Rocky movies (I must admit, I love Rocky, but the 5th Rocky movie… still hard to stomach)!
Anyhows… I placed the remote on the lazysusan, spun it around, forgot about the channel and volume buttons, popped the cap of the cola, tore open a sub and began to celebrate and enjoy my Labor Day, all while my Roomba 440 robotic vacuum cleaned my house!
In the words of a humble wise man who drinks tiger blood named Charlie Sheen… my GoVacuum blog reading friends, I was…. WINNING!

Well it’s no big surprise to us here at GoVacuum that JD Power & Associates has named Miele best in class for Customer Service for dishwashers in 2011, but for the second year in a row Miele has won this coveted award, scoring particularly high for performance, reliability, and warranty, with a total overall score of 814.
Well… yesterday started off as a normal morning for me, I woke up, I did my normal morning routine of exercise, shower and eat breakfast… and then… an earthquake!
I’ve been getting behind on blog entries so I decided the night before I would write one yesterday about the Miele B990 Rotary Iron Mangle we started selling recently.
When I was ready to walk outside I realized, WOW! It’s really an incredibly beautiful day with perfect weather, so I had only 2 choices, call in sick (but I don’t do that unless I’m really sick, as karma would ensure I’d get a rare form of illness) or take the day off. Now… this is where my creativity came into play. I called the big boss man and explained my dilemma, he told me to just work from home writing for ½ the day. I LOVE MY JOB!
So the mood was set for a great blog entry, hammock – check, laptop with wifi – check, big glass of EdenPURE 2000 filtered water – check, sunshine and 70 degrees – check… earthquake centered about 50 miles from my home– check!
Here’s how it went down, I was just finishing up the blog entry and all of a sudden I heard what I thought was my stomach growling, then it got louder and I thought it was a train, but I live in the country where there’s not a train for miles, just about then the hammock started to swing. I looked up at my house and noticed the chimney dancing around. It took a couple of moments for me to realize what was happening, then I jumped up and ran inside the house (now, I know what you’re thinking, hey kid genius you’re suppose to run outside during an earthquake not inside!). I know to stop, drop and roll, but this is only my second earthquake, thus I’m still learning.
As I got back inside the basement, it stopped. That was it. I looked around, a few things fell off the shelf, but nothing broke. I questioned myself, did we just had an earthquake? No way!
I called my loved ones and then tried the GoVacuum office and warehouse, but the phone lines were not working. I texted and got a reply that everyone was alright, no injuries. I figured at this point, I should go into work, but the fear of an aftershock derailed my intent of riding my motorcycle. I was excited to get there, as I knew I would hear some cool stories about the earthquake centered approximately 70 miles from our warehouse.
One of the funniest is how, an employee I call Superman just bolted out the door, he just stood up from his desk and ran outside (maybe I need a lesson from him on earthquakes). The other was how Michael was taking an order and looked outside at the surrounding buildings and blinds shaking then turn back and continued to help a customer who ordered the wrong bags.
The big east coast earthquake 2011 made for some fun excitement at GoVacuum. Then I walked through the warehouse. I was reminded of how lucky we are no one or stock was damaged, but then I walked to the back corner where we keep our returned inventory, floor demos and open stock vacuums and air purifiers. Well… so much for no damage!
It turns out we had more then a few machines fall from the shelves in this area. So much for my easy going relaxing day, as the rest of the night was spent inspecting the packaging, the contents and making sure they all turned on and operated properly. Luckily they all are fine and in great working order! The boxes took all the damage. Just one problem, now we have to sell them and the owner would prefer sooner then later! So he has done something he has never done before, he is allowing YOU the customer to name your own price!
He told me to make a list of not just these fallen few plus all of the open stock and returned machines that have been inspected and “sell them fast”… so as of today we are having our official GoVacuum.com “Earthquake Of Savings Sale”!
These prices are so low we can’t list them online at our website, as many manufactures will only allow us to sell at a certain price on our website, if we offer it for less online they will not allow us to sell their vacuums anymore. Yes, even if they are open stock items! The solution? Call US! Just pick up the phone an call us! You WILL save money!
That’s right, if you call GoVacuum at 888-468-2210 we can let you know what vacuum for your cleaning situation we recommend and we will check to see if we have it in open stock. The owner has authorized deep discounts as he wants these machines to be sold ASAP! (I think he is worried about hurricane Irene now!) There has never been a better time to invest in your home and air quality then right now!
Call 888-468-2210 Today! You have 30 days to return the machine if you aren’t 100% satisfied with your purchase! I mean, you are dealing with GoVacuum.com the most pro-consumer and best vacuum cleaner website in the world!
Now for the legal Mumbo jumbo: These are being sold on a first call, first serve basis. Sorry, but no rain-checks, no layaway’s, limit of 5 vacuums per caller. Excludes Miele, Sebo & IQ Air… 888-468-2210!
