Nothing simplifies the daunting chore of cleaning hardwood floors and carpet like a reliable vacuum that is up for the task. In case you’re in the market to update your current vacuum situation, we found an awesome deal on a stick vacuum that’s hard to pass up. We’re talking about the Shark Rocket Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum which is currently on sale at Amazon for only $150.
Powered by 4.2 amperages, this vacuum is made super lightweight at a little under 9 lbs and equipped with a swivel steering for versatile floor cleaning and maneuvering around tight spaces around your living spaces. Not only is it designed to do a number on hardwood floors and carpets, but thanks to its convertible design, it can also be used to suck up above-the-floor debris and dust on walls and upholstery.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $150 (originally $180)
Along with being the ultimate cleaning tool for your home, the Shark Rocket Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum is also made for sleek and easy storage. Without having to deal with bulky boxes or having to make additional space, it features two easy options: Fix the hand vac to the bottom of the wand or secure it to the wall mount.
Backed up by a 4.5-star rating and more than 2,200 customer reviews, it’s no wonder why shoppers are buzzing about this vacuum.
“Look no further. Seriously BUY THIS VACUUM! This is all you will ever need. I haven't used a Dyson but don’t care. This vacuum actually does what it says and I don’t have to sweep after I vacuum! It sucked up an entire cup full of dirt and dog hair just off of the area rug under my kitchen table! It tried to duck up my mat at the door so I had to have my son stand on the mat to hold it down,” raved a five-star reviewer. “It is THAT powerful.”
“I was speechless for about 15 minutes as I cleaned my floors. I'm just in complete awe. I'm 37 years old and never knew I could be this darned excited about a vacuum cleaner. It puts all others to shame. I will promote this wherever I go and to anyone who will listed,” added another. “This is like winning the lottery.”
The only compromise about this vacuum is that it is corded. While many prefer styles like Dyson, which are known for their innovative technology and cordless designs, some shoppers still prefer corded vacuums due to the lack of maintenance they require.
“This thing is powerful! I’m happy with the fact that it has a cord and not a battery that only lasts 30 minutes like the Dyson. I’ve used the Dyson stick before, and this is comparable, but the shark is slightly heavier which honestly is not an issue. I know Dyson just came out with one that now lasts an hour on one charge, but that’s still not good enough for the three times the price,” said one reviewer. “I was purposely looking for something that is slim and not battery operated like my Roomba and can get into every nook and cranny, especially with a cat in the house. I mulled it over for a few months to do some research and ultimately decided on the Shark Rocket. So happy with this purchase.”
