Shark Black Friday 2022: What we’re predicting and current deals
October 1, 2022
If you’re in the market for a new vacuum it’s worth waiting for the Shark Black Friday deals this year, as it’s a great opportunity to buy the brand’s top-rated tech, household and beauty appliances for a substantially reduced price.
The Shark Black Friday event is returning for 2022 and we’re predicting price reductions on the brand’s best vacuums, best air purifiers and more this year.
This is because the Shark Black Friday Weekend sale event last year saw prices significantly slashed; shoppers in the US enjoyed up to $200 off vacuums, air purifiers, steam mops, and the brand’s best hair dryers and in the UK there were savings of up to £230 to be found on many of the brand’s most popular products.
Below, we’ve predicted what could be on sale, to help you prepare for the mega discounts in November, and have shared some great deals that are available to shop right now. Bookmark this page to be the first to know about the Shark Black Friday deals as they land.
Will there be a Shark Black Friday sale in 2022?
Shark have already confirmed that they will be participating in Black Friday for 2022—which will take place on 25 November 2022—and we’re anticipating some impressive savings for this year.
The brand confirmed their 2022 Black Friday sale on their website (opens in new tab), and promised “big discounts” on their “most popular vacuuming and cleaning products”, suggesting that there will be some worthwhile Shark Black Friday deals on the brand’s best cordless vacuums and more.
But Shark itself isn’t the only place you can shop their products. Plenty of other retailers sell Shark products, and the likes of Kohl’s and Currys offered steep bargains on a wide range of Shark products last year. We’re forecasting the same will happen again this year, although we don’t yet have confirmation from all associated retailers.
What were the best Shark Black Friday deals last year?
Shark vacuums, both corded and cordless, were the products with the best Shark Black Friday deals attached last year.
In the US, while Shark themselves offered up to $200 off their vacuums, huge discounts were also seen at Home Depot, Target and Amazon. One of the best Shark Black Friday deals was a $200 saving at Amazon on the Shark EZ Robot Vacuum (one of the best robot vacuums), which went from $500 down to $300 over the Cyber Weekend. At Home Depot, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away DLX Vacuum Cleaner was also subject to an $80 price reduction, going from $199 to $119.
The brand’s other products, such as their air purifiers and hair dryers, were also discounted during the Black Friday sale. The $350/£349.99 Shark Air Purifier 4 saw discounts in the US and UK; it was cut by $101 at Home Depot, and by £50 at Shark UK. There were largely $50/£50 savings on their hair dryers too—in the UK, for example, the Shark STYLE iQ Ionic Hair Dryer & Styler went from £229.99 to £179.99.

Which is the best Shark vacuum?
We’d argue that the best Shark vacuum very much depends on your own requirements and budgets—for example, do you want a cordless vacuum or a corded model? An expert tester for w&h tested a range of the brand’s vacuums, and found that their prefered overall model was the Shark Cylinder Pet Vacuum Cleaner with DuoClean and Anti Hair Wrap CZ500UK. This model falls into the middle of the price range for Shark vacuums, and is easy to store, lightweight, and very effective on both carpet and hard floor.
They also found the Shark WandVac 2-in-1 WV362UKT to be the best budget option; with up to 32 minutes running time, it also converts into a handheld, and is very lightweight to carry around your home.
And if you’ve got the money to splurge, the tester found the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Upright Vacuum Cleaner with Powerfins, Powered Lift-Away & TruePet ICZ300UKT to be the best premium option. It’s certainly pricey, but it’s also got a huge 60-minute run-time, a brilliantly quiet eco mode, and a battery power display, so you know how much time you’ve got left to vacuum.
How long do Shark vacuums last?
Shark explain that their products—including their vacuums—are guaranteed for at least five years due to their design and quality control, and the warranty on most of their products is 12 months.
However, many actual users of Shark products state that their items usually last up to eight years, meaning if you make a purchase, you can rest assured that you’re making a decent investment. You might even find that, if you take care of your Shark product well, it could last well past this!
