Deal Alert: Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub -promotion is over-

Heather says:

*Edit 8/16/09 The promotion is now over.*
Welcome to a rare moment at Home-Ec 101. I don’t track deals or announce coupons as I don’t have the time or interest in most of the products. Today, August 15, 2009 is offering a refurbished Hoover FloorMate Spinscrub for $59.99 + $5 shipping.

Refurbished products are mechanically sound, but may have some slight cosmetic wear. It’s a great way to get an essentially new product at a huge reduction in cost.

We have purchased from Woot in the past and have been pleased with the results. This deal won’t last, Woot offers these deals in limited quantities and I won’t be around most of the day. I will edit the post as soon as I see the promotion has ended. Neither Hoover nor W0ot is sponsoring this post, I just though it was a good deal on a product I use and enjoy (sick, I know).

    I love my Hoover SpinScrub. I have unsealed Mexican tile floors and could not get them clean unless I hired someone, which is NOT cheap and they only stayed clean a short time. Now I scrub my tile floors weekly and I’m not afraid to walk in my white socks, which is a major improvement. The soap with it smells good and cleans well with no soapy residue!

    Seems like a really good deal and God knows we could use one. I will say that I had 1 bad experience with a refurbished item and will usually try to buy something brand new rather than refurbished. In my case, refurbished wasn’t just cosmetic, they fixed a minor wiring problem. (I was buying an electric drill) That doesn’t mean I still probably wont buy this Hoover floor mate, looks to good to pass up!

      Refurbished models should be inspected before being placed for sale. We’ve purchased quite a few refurbished items with no problems and I strongly recommend it as an option.

    I can’t use one of these on my rough concrete floors (will be slate tile and bamboo when I get the $), but I have a friend who has sealed concrete and tile floors and swears by it, says it got discoloration out of grout lines that she didn’t even realize was there previously. Don’t use it on wood or laminate floors…for that you need a much pricier, very low liquid-output steam model…this one is for tile and vinyl only. It might work on linoleum, but be careful, linoleum can curl up if it gets too wet. You can’t use it on carpet at all.
