Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Review & Giveaway {closed}

I know, I know.  I promised everyone that I would post the BIG review yesterday.  Nothing to say except I had a family emergency this weekend and it duh-rain-ed me…  So, today I did everything I normally would have over the weekend.  Don’t get too angry though, this was well worth the wait!

If you read the title, you already know what the giveaway is.  Yet, you don’t KNOW how great this vacuum is!!  Let’s back up a little first.

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago about reviewing the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum.  I jumped at the possibility.  Although, I wasn’t sure exactly what the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum was.  Sure, I could have looked it up.  I didn’t though.  Why?  Well, first impressions are big deals.  I didn’t want to read about how others loved or hated this vacuum.  I wanted to form my own opinion.  So, to my surprise, this is what showed up at my door!

We have two sweet, old kitties.  Their names are Payson (he’s 11) and Anna Banana (she’s 10).  According to the vet, they are domestic medium haired cats.  To me, their fur is loooonnnngggg!  I mean, when the kitty has to be groomed, I think it’s long.  They were our first “kids”!  Just to add a little gag factor here, Hubs got Payson as a gift for me when we first started dating because my childhood kitty had passed away (yeah, I know…It’s okay to gag a little). Payson is the black and white one, Anna Banana is well, banana colored.

Back to the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser.  It arrived in the box like this.

I put it together in no time at all!  The directions were very simple to follow.  Once it was together, I immediately did a quick house pick up and revved up the vacuum.  It was great!  But, I hadn’t put it to the true test yet.  I vacuumed the upstairs first, then headed to the dungeon of toys and laundry basement.  For some reason our kitties prefer hanging out down there.  Maybe it’s all the toys in the playroom?  Neh, I honestly think they just hide from the kids!

The only words I truly have for the basement vacuuming is ewww.  I clean down there all the time!  I’m pretty type-A about the cleanliness of the basement, so I vacuum down there several times a week.  I COULD NOT believe all the fur, fuzz, hair, dust and ick that came out of the carpet!  Then I took the Turbo Brush attachment and started in on the futon and recliner that are down there.  The Pet Contour attachment was next.  Anna Banana loves to lay along the back of the recliner, so it was especially hairy.  Well, it was hairy.  Not any more!

What I can and will tell you is that the retail on this vacuum very affordable.  It has some super fabulous features!  I love the Pet Contour brush, and the extra pet hair lifter that is attached to the front of the vacuum.  It can be flipped up or down, depending on whether you need to use it!  Love that option!!  I have used it several (about 10 or so) times and it still amazes me with the icky stuff it is picking up!  My basement has never been cleaner and I now feel a LOT better about it!  I would recommend this vacuum!

BISSELL® Pet Hair Eraser® Vacuum:

A Vacuum Designed Specifically for Pet Owners

The BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Vacuum provides pet owners with superior suction and specially designed brushes and cleaning tools for removing pet hair, pet dander and dirt from carpets, upholstery and more.  The vacuum’s pet-specific tools and technology make it convenient for everyday use.

Features

  • Pet Hair Lifter – It works like a lint brush on floors when vacuuming normally. This feature grabs pet hair when you pull back on the vacuum and releases hair and suctions it up when you push forward.
  • Pet Contour Tool® – This innovative tool bends and flexes to pull out dirt and hair from hard to reach areas like stairs and upholstery.
  • Pet TurboBrush® – This tool works like a magnet to attract hair. It is great for beds, stairs and a pet’s favorite spot on the couch.
  • HEPA Media Filter – It captures over 99.9 percent of pet dander, dust mites, pollen and ragweed to help create a healthier home environment.

Technology

The Easy Empty dirt container’s clear construction shows when it’s time to empty the container, and it releases easily to pour pet hair, dirt and debris into the trash.  The vacuum’s dual edge cleaning with Surround Suction® allows consumers to clean hard-to-reach places like around furniture and baseboards where pet hair may gather. Plus, a clean filter indicator monitors air flow and lets consumers know when it is time to clean the filter. The Pet Hair Eraser vacuum also includes an extra-wide 15-inch cleaning path, 35-foot power cord and extra-long hose to give consumers added reach for cleaning larger areas faster.

Availability

The Pet Hair Eraser Vacuum is available now at the suggested retail price of $149.99 at Target, Kohls, Best Buy, Lowes, Sears, Shopko, Meijer, Amazon and Linens N Things.

  1. we have a spitz/lab mix. she’s red and shedding right now, so my blue carpet is streaked. my son wants a cat, but he’s allergic…there is 2 out back (mama and baby) don’t know where they came from, but our dog goes crazy everytime she goes out now (to the point of rolling in the dirt, grass and middle of the road)

  28. I have a dog. We could definitely use this.

  29. I have one dog (oh, and the spare dog made of hair that gathers in all of the corners of my house).

  30. I like bissell on facebook!

  31. Right now I have 3 kids. Katie (14 years old), Kenny (10 years old) and Koko (4 years old). All of them are domestic shorthair and for shorthairs they sure shed a lot! I may also be getting “Big Boy”, my neighbors cat, while he is recovering from heart surgery. I hate to think of Big Boy in that house all alone all the time.

    I have a Bissell Liftoff Deluxe and do love it. It does a great job but from what I am told the Pet Eraser does even better! And being allergic to cats (Yes, I am allergic to them) I need to keep the hair as much to a minimum as I can. After all, the cats aren’t leaving so either I have to clean as much as I can or get better allergy meds!

    I subscribe now and have been following Bissell on Facebook and Twitter for a long time now. And heck ya, I’ll tweet that I entered! Danka!!!

  46. Y I luv my dog…..I have a great story and I’ll try to make it short. A stray yellow lab ran around town for a couple of weeks(small farm town). Other people would take him in but he’d always run away and wonder the streets. Nobody knew who he belonged to. Well, we took him in and he has never left us and it’s been two years. I think he fell in love with our 5 kids and they fell in love with him. He is the best dog ever and for some reason he loves and trusts us enough to stay. He was sent to us:)

    I am not currently a pet owner, unless you count my husband, but have previously owned a Pomeranian and mixed breed (Rhodesian Ridgeback/chow mix) that shed like crazy. After our upcoming move, we are discussing which breed to get again, since we’ll have a yard that is fenced. All I know is my current vacuum was no match for either of their debris and would be ecstatic for one that could!!

  131. Currently, we only have fish but plan on getting a puppy soon. Not to mention, I practically shed hair like I’m an animal lol — but we have a baby so any hair is bad hair on the carpet. He will be crawling any day! This would be awesome!!
