Before you think $60 is too much for a hand vac you have to try it. It really picks up! The battery lasts a long time. And the attachments make it so simple to clean every surface of your home. The motorized brush is just like the ones on standard upright vacuums. Shark Hand Vac retails for $59 at all the major retailers (Walmart, Macy's, JCP) but through Sears we earned an additional $26 in Shop Your Way points to be used for future purchases.
