Thread DetailsLast Edited by badstink August 16, 2012 at 09:26 PM
I apologize profusely to everyone who read my original post. Based on someone else's slickdeal post from July 7th I thought Costco was selling the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Pro NV356E model but in actuality they are selling the Shark Navigator Professional Upright UV420 model, as some of you have noted in your replies on this thread.
When reading the replies to this thread, keep in mind that the first 21 were made before I had a chance to correct the model number.
The terms of the deal are the same as what I originally stated: $149.99 regular price minus $30 instant coupon = $119.99 final price. And if you're an Executive Club member then you'll also receive 2% back ($2.40) in your annual rebate.
The UV420 is not listed on the SharkClean.com website so I am unable provide a link to the manufacturer description/specifications. But this model appears to be purchasable at Amazon.com thru a 3rd party seller. The model must be very new because it has no feedback comments yet.
Here are the marketing blurbs listed on the outside of the box:
* 5 star consumer rated
* anti-allergen complete seal technology
* swivel steering (lightweight and maneuverable)
* extra long reach
* 3X capacity of the leading no loss of suction vac
* includes premium pet tools (pet hair power brush + 24 inch crevice tool)
* zero maintenance costs
* 5 year limited warranty
MY ORIGINAL INACCURATE POST FROM 8/12/12:
Yesterday I received a new Costco coupon book in the mail. There is a $30 coupon for a Shark Navigator Professional Bagless Vacuum (Item # 590552). The coupon is valid between 8/16/12 and 9/9/12 and has a limit of 5.
According to this slickdeals post, the Costo warehouse price is $149.99. The $30 coupon will bring the price down to $119.99. The item is not listed at costco.com so this is a warehouse only offer.
The manufacturer's website lists the price at $269.75. The Amazon.com price is $199.99. A Slickdeals price search shows the lowest price of NV356 model to be $188.99 at Sears. The regular price at Costco is $149.99 and beats everyone else's price. Factoring in the $30 Costco coupon you'll save $69 off of the Sears price.
And if you're an Executive Club member then you'll also receive 2% back ($2.40) in your annual rebate.
This model has received very good reviews. 242 out of 277 (87%) rate this product at 4 stars or 5 stars at Amazon.com.
