We want to pass on our savings to our customers, so we've lowered the price of this item. However, since our price is now below the manufacturer's suggested retail price, we are restricted by the manufacturer from showing the price right away.
We have our home cleaned every other week and replace the bag after each cleaning. This gets all the old dirt and dust out of our house for good and allows the vacuum to work at it's best efficiency. As inexpensive as these bags are it is cheaper to replace them than to pay the help the extra time a half full bag would add to the job AND we don't have air being pumped through 2 week old dust and dog hair. The lack of smell alone would justify our usage!
I love this vacuum and the bags that go with it are, well, the perfect pairing. They have a surprising capacity - I can vacuum a 1300 sq ft home 3 to 4 times, including "dusting", before the change bag indicator comes on - and I have 5 pets! Electrolux gets my vote for certain - I wouldn't buy "replacement" bags. And CPO has a great price on them, to boot!
Electrolux is the only vacuum I use. My original canister lasted 40 years. This new silent vacuum is easy to use and pull, but a little difficult in connecting the bags, and probably because the shape of the area to put it in.
