I fully recommend this vacuum alongside TechRadar's team of home experts, too. I had a cheap vacuum for a long time: the suction was terrible, the battery life was pathetic and I had to unclog the brush roll after every use. When I finally picked up a Shark vacuum a couple of years ago it's no exaggeration to say it changed my life, making my cleaning routine much easier and less stressful. 

It's an investment but I think it's worth it, so be sure you don't miss the Shark Stratos for a record-low price at Amazon and pick it up before the sale ends on Monday.

Shark Stratos - record-low price at Amazon UK

Shark Stratos Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner: £399.99£229 at Amazon

Here's a new record-low price for the appliance we awarded 4.5 stars out of five in our Shark Stratos Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner review. Again, I can't praise these vacuums enough for the Anti Hair Wrap tech that's saved me so much time unclogging the brush roll compared to my old vacuum. Flexology makes it a good option for reaching under furniture and this upgraded Stratos version boasts anti-odour tech and CleanSense IQ that automatically adjusts suction power to tackle tougher areas of dirt. Battery life is an impressive 60 minutes. A version with two batteries to double the runtime to 120 minutes and a bonus pet tool is also available for £279 at Amazon.

Shark Stratos Corded Stick Vacuum Cleaner: £249.99£199 at Amazon

Shark Stratos Corded Stick Vacuum Cleaner: was £249.99 now £199 at Amazon
Prefer a corded vacuum or want to save a little more money? This model is nearly identical and slightly cheaper while sacrificing portability for a little extra power. The same super-useful Shark features are included, such as the Anti Hair Wrap to keep the brush roll unclogged, Flexology to more easily navigate under furniture and Anti Odour capabilities to offer a more thorough clean.

Our Shark Stratos Cordless review gave this model 4.5 stars out of five for its impressive adaptive suction power on hard floors and carpets that can change on the fly to ensure it sucks up as much dirt and dust as possible. It's also a versatile device with a flexible wand that can bend 90 degrees to get under furniture and anti-hair wrap technology to keep the brush roll clear of jams. 

What's more, if you get the slightly more expensive version you get two battery packs so you get up to 120 minutes of runtime. Surely more than enough to whizz around the home.

Of course, even with the 45% discount, this is still a relatively expensive vacuum. The value for money is undeniable, though, if your budget can stretch to it. I've added more of the best vacuum cleaner deals below just to make that clear, as many are considerably more expensive than the Shark Stratos.

If it's still too much, you can also follow our full Amazon Spring Deal Days coverage for all the best early deals and latest offers from the major UK sale when it gets underway on March 20. There may be some cheaper options later this week.
