We usually stay away from refurbished items.
That was what I was worried about. But it's a lot cheaper so maybe worth it

Anyone have any experience with the stick vacuum? I'm debating between that and the Lift-Away
I've had a couple of brands (not shark), they are good for hard floors (you can use it instead of a dustpan) or commercial carpet, but they are not going to pick up any dirt from plush carpeting

Thanks, I think I'll play it safe and go with the regular one.

Smart move! There's a carpet switch and a hard floor switch.

FWIW it's possible the shark stick vac is better than the $20 ones I've used, but the price difference for the regular one is not that much so I'd go with that.

We usually stay away from refurbished items.
Got my vacuum today. While it seems to work perfectly, the cosmetics are horrible. It looks like it's been used for two or three years and then repackaged and resold. If it would be sold as used on Amazon, I think it would be rated "used-acceptable." The whole thing looks old, and it's full of scratches and dent - from years of use. The cable also has slight cuts and shreds, but nothing is exposed.

I don't think it's fair for them to sell this as "scratch and dent", which I always thought implies that it was a floor sample. Should I contact them?

Good point. I just submitted the text of my last post, minus the last sentence.

Asking for help, receiving help but then never reporting back the outcome.
Quote from: Woot
Hello there,

We are sorry to hear that your order is not as expected.

I'll be sure to pass your comments on to the appropriate people in our company as we take everything you say to heart and try our best to incorporate your thoughts into our site and business improvements.

To help you and resolve this issue in the best way, I have three options available at my end:

1. We can issue a partial refund of $10.00 if you think that this could be fixed locally or still want to keep the product.
2. If the partial refund is not viable, you may return the item for a full refund. You’ll not be charged for the return shipping.​
3. We can check with our vendor for replacements, but there is no guarantee they will have this item in their available inventory. It may take 2-3 business days for us to receive a reply about the availability of the item.

I realize that it must be time consuming process for you but I want to ensure that you are being served with the best solution. Please respond to this email with desired option which works well with you and we can go ahead and take the appropriate action to resolve this for you.

I hope you understand my limitations. Your patience and understanding is highly appreciated.

Should there be any further concerns do write back to us and we'll be glad to assist you further with the best of the service available.

We'd appreciate your feedback. Please use the links below to tell us about your experience today.

Best regards,
Pallavi Francis
Woot.com
I went with option 1.

Sorry for posting the deal!
 That's not good to hear.
 But definitely you should write back what's $10 going to do.
 At least 50% or $20-$30 is something to make up.
 Not satisfied with the $10 offer. You got to get a better offer.

   I know shark has a few year warranty and woot offers 90 warranty.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
