Aldi dupe of Dyson to hit shelves for $99
Aussie Aldi fans will soon have yet another reason to visit their favourite store.
The retailer is set to release a dupe of a Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner - and for a fraction of the price.
The Aldi version, priced at just $99, is virtually identical to Dyson's V7 Animal Handstick, a cult buy that sells for up to $399.
The cordless device - on sale as part of Aldi's February 5 Special Buys - features a large and small brush, a long crevice nozzle and a wall mount bracket.
Additionally, the rechargeable appliance offers 20 minutes run-time. This compares favourably with the Dyson model, which comes with 30 minutes run-time.

While Aldi's Special Buys tend to be hotly anticipated events, they often descend into mayhem whenever the retailer offers a version of a popular item.
In August last year, Aldi offered shoppers a dupe of a Thermomix, which was priced at an affordable $299.
Its Mistral Thermo Cooker featured a two-litre stainless steel bowl, 800 watt motor and 1000 watt heating power as well as 10 different speeds.
A steamer unit, chopping blade, mixing tool and recipe book were also included.
In contrast, the 20-function Thermomix TM6 retailed at the time for $2269.
While Aldi's version of the cooking device didn't come with as many features, it certainly ticked a lot of boxes when it was shared on Markdown Addicts Australia on Facebook.
Eagle-eyed shoppers noted the product had previously been sold at Big W and Spotlight and recommended it as a cheaper alternative to the pricey Thermomix.
"I got this one from Big W a few years ago. Not 100% the same but good for the price," one shopper commented.
"3 year warranty is good! Better than Thermomix!" one person wrote while another added: "I own this (Aldi version of Thermomix) and it is awesome!"
