Is the C3 model here different than the C3 Cat & Dog? Just different accessories I'm guessing.
Cat & Dog models include powered hose, tube and powerhead. If you think you might want an electric powerhead, don't get this - the upgrade path isn't economically viable.
AFIK all Miele canisters use the same 1200w motor. The differences are in size, filtration, internal vs external tool storage, and most importantly, included accessories. Electric powerhead > turbobrush (suction powered) > handheld turbo brush > hard floor brush. And there's a couple variations in each category of head too.

if you sign up for Bed Bath and Beyond to their email, you can get a 20% off email within 24hours. Which means the Miele C1 would cost $240 + tax!

Could be, but you'll need to read the fine print. They usually exclude many big brand names, such as Dyson/Miele.

All I can say is that there is a reason why there are so many refurbish Dyson for sale all year.

You almost never see a Miele refurbish.

As for the filter, it is indeed true that you have to buy the bag and filter. But the thing is, you are spending about $300 for a vacuum anyway, while $30 of bag easily last you a couple of years and provide much better suction, filtration. Once you have an objective comparison of both you will see that Bagged one are still by far better for the same price.
I only have a dyson handheld so I can't really comment on dyson vs miele on the canister side. I am looking into getting a full size vacuum now that I have pets. The cordless works great and I have been using it to vacuum my whole house for 2 years. I don't have allergies so I'm not bothered by emptying out the canister.

I am actually curious how often the bags need to be changed. you say a bag lasts for ~2 months? That seems like an underestimate to me but I haven't used a vacuum with a bag in over 20 years. I usually empty the 0.5L canister of my V6 at least 4 times per vacuuming session. I would guess even with compression a bag would only last 2-4 weeks before getting full. that means 1-2 bags a month so $60-$120 a year which seems excessive. Maybe i underestimate how much dirt you can jam in there...

If anything I think it is an overstatement. I don't have a big house, but at least a thousand ft of carpet on a biweekly schedule. So far each vacuum only takes up about 1/6 of the gauge.

I'm not sure how you can have a 0.5 canister emptied 4 times per vacuuming session. That seems like a huge hassle. Still, once you have someone come in the house and tell you they don't notice the pet smell, or someone with allergy telling you it feels much better, it is hard to go back to bagless EVEN if there is no other benefit. The less hassle becomes the icing to me.

Just go to any vacuum forum and group filled with actual vacuum repair people and they will tell you the same thing. Bagged are hands down better in just about every ways when it comes to cleaning.

PS: I do have a dirtdevil bagless upright before, I do have to empty twice every session and it is about 1L. So I guess we have similar usage.

Lol!!! I agree BUT I hate this dysentery diahhrea coloured yellow.
Maybe this sale and warranty upgrade is just a ploy to get rid of the slow selling Yellow inventory!

Miele has a free 10-year warranty upgrade on any model vacuum purchased in the month of December, plus they have taken $200 off the C1 Celebration in Canary Yellow. This means a $299 vacuum cleaner with a 10-year warranty, which is a very good deal IMO for those with mainly hardwood floors/lower pile carpets. I have provided the link to Miele directly, but this price is available at all authorized Miele retailers (Best Buy, The Bay, etc.)

http://ca.miele.ca/Toronto/en/Product/Details/1387

Thanks to @lcmt for this quick list of online links to the item at major authorized retailers. This is useful if you have Best Buy gift cards to use up, want to avail of the $25 Costco Masterpass discount, or have coupons at other stores that you can use in conjunction with this.

Costco has the C2 Compact Lightweight for $389:

Lowes had a 15% off coupon code so I got an additional discount on the $299. Came out to $284 after taxes.

Sucks better, Consumer Reports tested a whole bunch of vacuums and the bagless, including the overpriced Dyson junk, performed worst.
I used to have a Dyson ball... Then I realized it sucked, NOT literally, so I sold it and got a Miele C3. I also have a rigid shop vac, and a xiaomi robot vacuum... Love a clean house.

What's the cheapest model with the electrically powered brush, not the air powered one.
C1 Cat & Dog or C2 Cat & Dog - both are $650.

I know bagged performs better, but does anyone know why that is? Why can't a bagless perform just as well as a bagged?

The bags themselves have filters, trapping particulate matter that would otherwise escape the vacuum/dust bin. The makers of the bagless models (i.e. Dyson) would have you believe that you don't need any filters, or that you can just use the same one by washing it every so often, and that appeals to people because of the lower cost and lower maintenance requirements. Unfortunately, filters are necessary, and they do wear out / become less effective over time, even the washable ones, so you can imagine how much better the filtration would be if you are buying new filters each time rather than reusing old ones.
