These are little vaccums for quick clean up. They are light, equipped with removable handle to make it able to be used as a handheld unit. However, there are some key differences that you should know before making a purchase between these 2 small vacuums.
One of the big difference between Eureka Quick Up and Bissell 3 in 1 is the Nozzle design.
The floor nozzle on Eureka quick up does not come off to change nozzle or use other tools like a crevice tool.
While the cleaner head on the Bissell 3 in 1 is detachable, you can use it to clean counter tops and hard to reach areas.
2, Motorized Brush
The Eureka Quick Up is equipped with motorized brush which can be turned On/Off, while the Bissell 3 in 1 vacuum does not have a brush, it is suction alone.
3, Power Source
The Eureka 96H/96HX/96JZ are battery powered while the Bissell 38B1/38B1L are corded.
One main drawback of battery powered unit is the running time, however, the cordless design also makes its mobility better, and with no cord to detangle or unwind/wind.
While the shortcoming of a corded unit is that the cord might in the way when using it, or you might have to keep changing outlets if the cord is short. But there is no battery to recharge or replace.
