When Are Most New VAX Vacuum Cleaners Released?

December to January is the most common period for new VAX vacuum cleaners to be released in. For the latest VAX vacuum cleaner technology you may want to consider waiting until December 2018. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current VAX vacuums tend to drop off when the next models are released. Four new VAX vacuums were released in January 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new VAX vacuum releases. In December 2016 11 new VAX vacuum cleaners were released making it the biggest month that year for new VAX vacuum releases. October was the biggest month in 2015 for new VAX vacuums, with nine new VAX vacuums released that month.

How Fast Do VAX Vacuum Prices Drop After Release?

VAX vacuum cleaners tend to depreciate slower than most vacuums. Most vacuums drop in price by 3% in the first 6 months after release. On average, in the first 6 months after release, VAX vacuum cleaners drop in price by 1%. That means a saving of £2 on a typical £179 new VAX vacuum cleaner if you wait 6 months before buying.
