They had me at “Clean Surge”

Edited 1/13/07, 5:00 PM: Amazon is messing around with the pricing (probably due to a surge in orders). Thanks to Elizabeth for suggesting the alternative of the Hoover F5914-900 instead (very similar model, only $5 more after coupon).

Ohhhhh, this is sexy. It’s so sexy. It’s purple! And for me it evokes visions of clean carpets, as far as the eye can see.

Those of us with kids know that clean carpets are a pipe dream of the past. Or are they?

This is a killer deal on a home carpet steam cleaner. Originally $239.99, marked down to $139.99, take another $25 off with coupon code CLEAROUT, and there’s free Super Saver Shipping. You’re just not going to find it any cheaper than this.

And here’s what you get: A highly-rated scrubbing carpet cleaner that features on-board attachments (for getting into small/tight spaces) and “Clean Surge” for that extra oomph when hitting tough stains. And it all comes in a pretty purple package that’s about the same size as your vacuum. It’s clean freak nirvana.


  1. Oh, we have this and it’s fabulous! And that’s an amazing price. We used to rent a Rug Doctor from the grocery store a couple times a year but we’re so much happier with our SteamVac. Doggie footprints can get cleaned up immediately (as well as kid messes and spills and general wear and tear).

  2. We’ve been in the market for one of these for a while. It turns out that the CLEAROUT code and the free super saver shipping don’t apply to this model, because there is a third party involved. However, there is a very similar model (not quite as pretty), that does the exact same things for $119.95 total, because of the free shipping and CLEAROUT code. The model number is F5914-900. We borrowed this model from our friends a couple of weeks ago and it worked wonders for our carpet, much more than the ones that we have rented in the past. We did a comparison between the two machines on the Hoover website and they appear almost identical. Thanks for the post!!!

  3. Elizabeth: When I posted it this morning, it was available from Amazon at that price. Typical of them to do the switch and then raise the price. 😛 Glad you were able to find something to meet your needs, though!

  4. Great deal but I didn’t see the free shipping and the shipping came to over $30. 🙁

  5. I just ordered the alternative that Elizabeth recommended. I’ve been holding onto a $25 “reward certificate” from Amazon for a few weeks now. So I got this one, shipped, for just under $95. Excellent, because I’m running out of furniture to drag around and place over the stains on my rugs.

  6. I was able to purchase it earlier today for $114.99

  7. Dammit! I’m supposed to be saving for a laptop and now you have me all hot for one of these. BUT… having two kids, it’s pretty much a given that I need it a lot more than I need yet another computer. Thanks for the tip!

  8. The alternative is no longer eligible for free shipping either. 🙁
