With five out of six family members having asthma, a clean home is essential in the Frugality Is Free family, which is why we vacuum daily. I still remember living in a small New Jersey apartment and vacuuming our rugs with a small hand-held vacuum, and yes I’ve tried the upright vacuums too. Here in South Florida we have tile floors only, and the upright vacuums just do not work well on tile floors. So, years ago, I went on a mission to find the best vacuum for tile floors.

Six years ago I purchased a Panasonic canister vacuum for our Swagbucks earnings, and it has worked very well until this past year. It is still working, but it just seems as if I needed a new filter, and of course the vacuum and the filter is no longer sold. The only alternative was therefore buying a new vacuum cleaner, and thankfully I had saved up Amazon gift cards at Swagbucks and Bing. I was hoping to spend no more than $100 on a new vacuum, but then I discovered a little gem on Amazon. The BISSELL Zing Bagless Canister Vacuum costs only $42!


My first thought was that surely something a $42 vacuum cleaner must not work very well. Still, I read through the 960+ reviews, checked out the four star rating and I was intrigued. After comparing with other similar bagless canister vacuums, I decided to give it a go.

My first thought – WOW! This thing sure has some power behind it! It is a little workhorse, and it might just be the best $42 purchase that I’ve ever made.

I love the BISSELL Zing Bagless Canister Vacuum!


  • It has great suction power!
  • It is bagless!
  • It is a canister vacuum!
  • It is small!
  • It has a retractable cord!
  • It is so easy to empty the dust container….a simple push of a button.
  • It works great on tile floor!
  • It works great on our area rugs.
  • Even the kids can use it.
  • It costs only $42 and comes with FREE shipping!


So yes, even though I love my old vacuum cleaner, I love my new BISSELL Zing Bagless Canister Vacuum even more. It has much better suction power, it is much easier to empty, and I am one happy Amazon customer. For me it is clearly the most affordable, best vacuum cleaner for tile floors

Of course, knowing that I was able to buy it for Amazon gift cards earned at Swagbucks, Bing and Superpoints just makes it so much better.


Disclaimer: The Frugality Is Free family DID NOT receive a product sample. We simply love our new vacuum cleaner, so much and we wanted to spread the word.
