Hoover takes up to 80% off during its Friends & Family Factory Sale. (Enter password "FRIENDS2013" to see the sale.) Plus, all cleaners get free shipping. (Parts and accessories get a $4.99 flat rate shipping fee.) That's tied with our September mention as the best sale we've seen from Hoover. (For further comparison, we saw up to 70% off in June.) Deal ends December 12 at 4 am ET. A couple of best bets: Note: Many items are "new in box" with a damaged box but still have normal warranties.
