This Black Friday deal on the Shark Stratos Cordless is one not to be missed. Take it from me: it's a good vacuum cleaner, and this is a really good deal.

I've recently reviewed it in my own home and found that the suction was really impressive - it banished crumbs to the canister, lifted stray hairs without getting into a tangle, and left a fresh odor thanks to an innovative odor-neutralizer technology. I actually enjoy vacuuming because of this vacuum cleaner.

And now it's a Shark Black Friday deal not to be missed. It's discounted from $499.99 down to $299.99, saving you $200. This is the lowest price it has ever been, so it is a genuine deal and is one that can be bought either directly from Shark or from a reseller such as Amazon.

In our review, we found that it is a powerful, versatile, and flexible vacuum cleaner that has ample runtime. The offer is price-matched so you have the choice on where to buy for the best price.

Shark Stratos Cordless: key features

The Shark Stratos Cordless is featured in our best cordless vacuum cleaner guide, and for good reason, too. I reviewed it for a couple of months and found that it was an innovative piece of kit.

Most of the innovation is packed into the floorhead. It has been bolstered with Clean Sense IQ, which has an indicator to visually show when power has been increased and when the floor is clean again. The floorhead also has odor-neutralizer technology that is made up of an intensity dial and a cartridge. A twin pack of replacement cartridges can be bought for $14.99 from the Shark website. This tech (the odor-neutralizer) is a gentle release of a fresh scent when you're vacuuming and eliminates any bad odors in the  0.18 gallon / 0.7L dust canister.

A feature that I haven't seen on any other vacuum cleaner thus far is the 'MultiFlex technology' on the stick wand. Whilst it's nothing new per-se because there are plenty of other wands that can bend under furniture, it can be folded over for storing. This also meant that when it was on the test, I could charge the Stratos without having to remove the battery - a major plus point where space is more limited or if time never seems to be on your side (like me) and you want to do something quickly.

The Shark Stratos Cordless comes with a Duster Crevice Tool and Anti-Allergen Brush that can be used when the vacuum cleaner is transformed into a smaller handheld.

This is a huge saving of $230 and is amongst one of the best deals we have seen on Shark vacuum cleaners so far.
