There once was a time when Dyson reigned supreme as the most coveted hoover, but now it’s got some stiff competition from Shark.
From tackling pet hair to making light work of daily dust and debris, this American brand has a reputation for making excellent vacuum cleaners that are powerful, ergonomic and easy to use.
While they’re more affordable than some of the very high end alternatives, Shark hoovers still come at a premium cost – but savvy shoppers know there’s always deal to be had, it’s just a case of finding the best one.
A word of friendly advice – snap these offers up quickly, as they don’t stick around for long, and you might find that your chosen model sells out before you have a chance to hit “add to basket”.

Amazon is a great destination to get your hands on a Shark hoover deal, but the discounts often rotate quickly, so keep your eyes peeled for any changes. Our current top pick is this upright vacuum cleaner, which ranked highly in our list of the best pet vacuum cleaners, thanks to its versatility across hard floors and carpets, and its anti hair-wrap brush, which prevents hair (pet or otherwise) from getting tangled in its mechanisms. With an 8m cord, it’s a great option for cleaning larger spaces. It typically retails for around £349, meaning this deal saves you £104 as it’s on offer for £245.99.
Also on Amazon, you’ll find this cordless stick vacuum cleaner, which normally costs £379.99, but is now £309.99. It’s incredibly well-reviewed, with more than 1,500 five-star ratings from customers who love its impressive suction, long battery life (around 40 minutes) and ability to convert into a handheld device. It’s not quite as light as you might expect for a slimline stick vacuum cleaner, but what it lacks in portability, it makes up for in power.
Admittedly not the biggest saving we’ve found in terms of margin, but the NV602UKT is one of Shark’s more affordable offerings anyway, and right now at AO you can get it for £178, (usually it’s around £269). It’s a nifty lightweight bagless vacuum cleaner that’s easy to set up and uses clever LED lights on the floorhead to highlight dirt and dust as you work, ensuring that no rogue spots are missed.
It’s slightly less slick-looking than some of its counterparts, but don’t dismiss the Shark AZ950UKT – it’s a large capacity model that will leave your floors dust-free in double quick time. It boasts Shark’s signature double brush-roll design to make going between surfaces a breeze and also transforms into a portable model to get into nooks and crannies as needed. You won’t often find this for as little as £249.99 – it usually costs £379.99.
With the brand’s “duoclean” technology, this works with two brush rolls to remove dirt from different floor types, moving seamlessly from hard floor to carpet without having to change heads. With a whopping £100 saving, this is a no-brainer, particularly for pet owners since it easily removes hair with the specialist tool.
Another whopping discount at Amazon, this vacuum cleaner has been designed to be able to bend to clean hard-to-reach areas. Plus, if you’re short on space, it folds down neatly for easy storage. Similarly to its other vacs, this corded device features anti-hair wrap technology, which removes embedded pet hair from soft furnishings and carpet. With a five-year guarantee, if your appliance breaks Shark will repair or replace it.
If you’re looking for a cordless vacuum cleaner, this is a great option. With 50 minutes of run time and the ability to tackle different floor types without stopping to switch heads, this is a surefire way to make cleaning your home a whole lot easier. What’s more, this is the most competitive price we’ve seen – it usually retails at £399, so you’ll be saving £100.
Typically £269.99, there’s almost £100 to be saved on this upright vacuum cleaner. It’s corded so you’ll never run out of power and the multi-surface tool, crevice tool and carpet and hard floor modes will ensure your floors, stairs and soft furnishings stay free from dust and dirt. You’ll never miss a spot either, thanks to the LED headlights in the floor head which help to illuminate hidden dust.
