Amazon has a huge sale on Shark vacuums for spring cleaning: Save up to $300

Shark Vertex stick vacuum IZ462H

Shark is one of the best vacuum brands on the market. The brand offers vacuums that are high-quality, long-lasting and affordable. I know this because I've owned a Shark upright vacuum for four years, and after all this time, I'm happy to report that its cleaning abilities on both hardwood floors and rugs are still top-notch. 

That's why we're so excited about this Shark sale that's going on right now on Amazon, which includes discounts of up to 46% off on various products, including an upright vacuum, robot vacuum, cordless vacuums and more. It's your perfect opportunity to start spring cleaning early and save big while doing it.

Shark AI Ultra self-empty robot vacuum: Save 46%


The 4.2-star-rated Shark AI Ultra robot vacuum has a lot going for it. It has a self-cleaning brush roll, a HEPA filter and a self-cleaning canister, so you never have to empty the vacuum yourself (the vacuum does so automatically in the docking station). This Shark model also contains CleanEdge technology, which blows air into corners so that it can get to dirt and debris more easily. 

The Shark AI Ultra self-empty robot vacuum comes with a corresponding app that lets you set a cleaning schedule or activate cleanings remotely. If you have Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you can do this with voice commands. This cleaning machine can run up to two hours on a single charge, and you have about 60 days until the dust bin in the docking station needs to be emptied.

One reviewer wrote that this was "a great addition to their home," adding: "I absolutely love this vacuum! I have had it for several months and have had no issues. I have a medium-sized dog who is very furry and the vacuum cleaner gets all the hair off the floor. I have hardwood floors with area rugs and throw rugs at the doors and the sweeper manages all the different areas and heights of rugs with no problems."

Normally priced at $650, you can get this robot vacuum at Amazon for just $350, a savings of 46%.

Shark Navigator Lift-Away upright vacuum: Save 32%


What we love most about this Shark vacuum is that you can detach the handle and canister from the base, transforming it into a handheld vacuum instantly. With this functionality, you'll be able to reach dust and debris in your couch, baseboard corners and other tight areas with ease. 

This Shark upright has separate modes for hard floors and rugs, comes with a HEPA filter and has a 0.9 quarts (about 3.5 cups) capacity in the dust cup. It also boasts a 4.5-star rating on Amazon, with more than 86,500 ratings. (Note that the discount only applies to the blue NV360 model.)

One reviewer wrote, "I was literally blown away at how good this vacuum worked. I've got kids, a husband and a dog and this vacuum did such a good job it looked like I hadn't vacuumed in years. You can feel how strong the suction is and as a mom, I need a good vacuum. If you don't want to spend hundreds on a great vacuum I highly suggest this one."

Shark Anti-Allergen cordless stick vacuum: Save 22%


If you suffer from household allergies, such as pet dander and dust mites, this Shark cordless stick vacuum may help alleviate some allergy symptoms. That's because the vacuum not only comes with HEPA filtration, but it also has an anti-allergen seal, ensuring that up to 99.9% of particles 0.3 microns or larger are captured and remain in the vacuum. 

The Shark Anti-Allergen cordless stick vacuum has a self-cleaning brush roll and LED headlights on the brush head. It can be configured into a handheld vacuum, too. You can expect to use this for up to 40 minutes before it needs additional charging. 

This Shark cordless stick vacuum has a 4.3-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer wrote, "We love love love this vacuum, it truly is a boost of dopamine every time I get to use it. We have carpet under the kitchen table and this thing vacuums lots of crumbs and food particles dropped by toddlers. Has made my life much easier. Also like how you can get under the couch much easier than with those clunky vacuums." 

Regularly $330, get this Shark vacuum while it's on sale at Amazon for $258.

Shark HV322 Rocket Deluxe Pro corded stick vacuum: Save 40%


What's so great about having a corded stick vacuum is that, unlike cordless models, you don't have to worry about running out of battery mid-clean and needing to wait hours for it to charge back up again.

The Shark HV322 Rocket Deluxe Pro has plenty of features that make vacuuming your home a breeze. There's a light on the vacuum head for easier viewing of dust on your floor, plus it easily converts into a handheld vacuum. There's an attachment specifically designed to tackle pet hair, too.

This Shark model has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer said that this is "the best vacuum I've owned," adding: "I love this vacuum! We have 3 dogs that are in and out of the house, so we have a lot of pet hair. This vacuum does the trick! It gets pet hair off the couch too. I love how it can get under furniture and counters. It turns easily and has great suction power. My floors look so clean after using it."

Shark Vertex Pro lightweight cordless stick vacuum with DuoClean PowerFins: Save 35%


The Shark Vertex Pro cordless stick vacuum has a 60-minute runtime and detaches from the brush head to convert it into a handheld vacuum. What stands out about this Shark model is the vacuum's flexible wand, which can bend (to an extent) under furniture to clean harder-to-reach areas. We also like that the Shark Vertex Pro can be configured half its size and stay upright for easy storage. 

The vacuum has a 4.3-star rating on Amazon. One customer wrote, "This is not a cheap vacuum. You get what you pay for. It's worth every cent. We have hardwood floors and area rugs that need vacuuming often. We have a gravel driveway and that requires daily vacuuming. This vacuum has amazing suction and is powerful. Gets the job done with ease. Also, don't even get me started on the bendable arm. It's a game changer."

The price of the Shark Vertex Pro varies by color. You'll save the most on the blue colorway: Normally $430, it's just $280 at Amazon now. 

Shark Wandvac cordless handheld vacuum: Save 35%


If you don't need a new full-size vacuum but would like a tool to help you clean the nooks and crannies in your furniture, kitchen countertops and more, invest in this Shark WV201 Wandvac cordless handheld vacuum. 

This little vacuum is lightweight (only 1.4 pounds) and comes with two attachments, including a crevice tool to help you get into hard-to-reach places, and the multi-surface pet tool that was designed to tackle pet hair and debris in upholstery and carpets. The Wandvac is powered by a rechargeable battery and takes about 2.5 hours to reach a full charge.

The Shark Wandavac has a 4.3-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer wrote, "This is the best thing to buy if you have pets. A bit pricey but, It sucks up cat hair from the sofas and it's also very easy and fast. It's always charging so I have never had an issue with that, I love it." 

Get the slate colorway of the Shark Wandvac at Amazon for $85, reduced from $130. Price varies by color.

Shark StainStriker portable carpet & upholstery cleaner: Save 21%


We at CBS Essentials believe that upholstery and carpet cleaners should be cleaning staples in your home the same way that vacuums and mops are. That's why we love that Shark is discounting its carpet and upholstery cleaner, which has been designed to eliminate odors, including those from pet accidents as well as deep stains in your couch, car, rugs and more. The set comes with two cleaning solutions and attachment tools, including a reversible bristle tool, a crevice tool, a pet tool and even a hose-cleaning tool. 

The Shark StainStriker has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon. One reviewer called this product "small but strong," adding: "I was a little hesitant about it because I ordered it to clean my car interior, which people charge up to $200 to do. But let me tell you!! This little machine is amazing! Easy to set up, comes with the soap and easy to clean! Save myself so much money because we can use it in our home as well!"
