Shark Stratos Cordless with Clean Sense IQ, DuoClean PowerFins HairPro
$499.99 $449.99 at Shark
Save $50 – The bestselling Shark Stratos Cordless is an even more tempting purchase with $50 off the price. We were big fans of the suction, flexible wand and Clean Sense IQ in our review, and awarded it 4.5 out of 5 stars. We're not sure if it'll be discounted any more that this around Black Friday, but at $50 off and with free shipping this is a prety good deal.
Shark Stratos UltraLight Corded Stick Vacuum
$299.99 $269.99 at Shark
Save $40 – if you're unsure whether to go cordless or get a stick vacuum, this deal can take care of that. You keep the power of an upright and the ability to store it standing, while not having the full weight of an upright cleaner to push around – and with $40 it's going to be a little lighter on the wallet too.
The Shark Stratos Upright vacuum has a large dust bin, and boast Shark's latest vacuum tech, including the Duo Clean Floorhead with Anti Hair Wrap Tech, Powered Lift-Away and Odor Neutralizer Technology – essentially this is a nice-smelling plug that slots in to the floorhead to stop bad odours building up inside the vacuum.
The Shark Stratos Cordless, meanwhile, features Shark's Clean Sense IQ technology, which is one of the many features that helped it earn top spot on our list of the best cordless vacuum cleaners. This detects the type of floor your cleaning, and the amount of dirt, dust and debris on the floor, and automatically adjusts the suction power for the ultimate clean.
With prices being slashed ahead of Black Friday, now is a good time to start seriously looking for a new vacuum cleaner if you need one – savings of up to $120 don't come around often, especially on Shark vacuums.
