While Dyson might be the go-to-choice if you're after a new vacuum cleaner, the British firm has plenty of stiff competition. One of the UK's big rivals is Shark, whose range of vacs have also earned rave reviews over the years. And right now you can save £200 or more on two Shark vacuum cleaners at Amazon UK, who have slashed the prices of these machines by over half for the Black Friday season.
The biggest discount can be found on the Shark anti-hair wrap cordless stick vacuum cleaner, which usually is priced at £399.99 but is available right now for £188.99.
That's a saving of £211, or 53 percent.
As the name suggests, this cordless Shark vac will make it easy to move around your house, carry up the stairs and shove into hard to reach places – without having to worry about whether the lead to your plug point is long enough.
This Shark vac has up to 40 minutes runtime, plus a removable battery that can be charged anywhere – for added ease of use.
The machine comes bundled with four attachments, including a motorised pet tool – ideal if your cat or dog regularly run around the place and leave hairs.
The vac can easily be used on both carpets and flooring, while Shark's anti-hair wrap technology makes it easy to remove hair from the brush-roll.
The versatile cleaner is also capable of bending so you can easily reach under furniture, while it can also be folded for freestanding storage.
The Shark anti-hair wrap cordless stick vacuum cleaner comes with a five year warranty (and a two year warranty on the battery) upon registration with Shark.
Alternatively, if you're happy with a vacuum with a cord then you can pick up the Shark upright vacuum cleaner for half price too.
This usually costs £379.99, but is available today for £179.99. This amounts to a £200 saving, or a 53 percent discount.
Once again, this vac can be used on floors and carpets, features Shark's anti hair wrap technology to easily remove hairs from the brush-roll, and also offers a five year guarantee upon registration with Shark.
An included pet tool can also help remove stubborn hairs on your sofa and stairs, while it can also be transformed into a portable vac to use on your stairs or under furniture.
This vac is a wired one, so you won't get the benefits of a cordless machine.
The flipside to this though is you won't need to worry about getting all your vacuuming done before the charge runs out.
If, however, you have your heart set on a Dyson machine you can still pick up one of this household name's cleaners for a low price.
Currys is one of the retailers that has slashed the prices of Dyson devices for Black Friday 2021, with prices for the leading manufacturer's cordless vacs starting from £199.
This is for V8 animal cordless which usually costs £299. However, you better act quick as Dyson products which have been reduced in price are selling out fast, with Argos out of stock of a number of machines – at the time of writing.
