Is there anywhere to buy mass quantities of the Miele bags and get a better price?
Was going to ask which model but saw in the other post you bought the Earth, which uses the the GN bags. (Apparently that's a very popular model where I live.)
They are a lot but totally worth it. I used to buy them at one of the vacuum megasellers online (Vacuums Direct or Vacuum Galaxy maybe?) for about $4.75 a piece, when in bulk of 10 or more. My cleaning service provides them now for their cost, so I stopped having to deal with it. :O
