Shark's website currently has their flagship R101AE self emptying robotic vacuum on sale for 399$ instead of the regular 550$ when you buy directly through their website. Additionally, you can sign up for a 1 time use 10% off promo code through the link at the top of the page when you first load the site. The deals can be, combined and I recently purchased two units this way with free two day shipping.

This vacuum is a direct competitor to the Roomba i7+ self emptying vacuum, but half the price, and you don't have to buy expensive vacuum bags. Very excited to give this unit a shot!

This is also 140$ cheaper than the previous front page deal a month ago


**note that once the promo code is applied, you cannot change your order or quantity in the checkout or you will have to obtain a new code. Protip — if you have gmail, you can add a +anything to your email and it'll forward to you because the + and anything after is ignored. Eg email+promocode@ Gmail.com forwards the same as email@ gmail.com, but allows you to use a new email address.

I just returned the one I bought at Kohls. This vacuum is not for everyone.

I own a random Roomba 620 and have tried the Roborock S6.

The Shark robot vacuum is a great idea. They promoted it well, and the reviews on YouTube make it seem like it's a great product. The price point is perfect, but the unit itself is not.

Cons:
-Only runs for 30 minutes at a time, then returns to dock to either a) empty bin or b) recharge and resume. You don't know what it's doing, because the app doesn't tell you. Sometimes it returned in 30 minutes and would just stay.
-Took over 15 tries to map the house, but the map was horrendous and it didn't help performance after mapped.
-Does not continuously vacuum while searching for the dock.
-Got lost a lot. Vacuums for 30 minutes, but spends 45 minutes searching for the dock without vacuuming. Wheels just run for 45 minutes searching for the dock.
-You have to have a well lit house. The camera navigation system requires light to be able to interpret where it's going.

Pros:
-Suction power is truly fantastic
-Brush roll does not get hair wrapped at all. Their anti-wrap feature is brilliant.
-Going back to the dock and emptying. Once it found the dock, it emptied fine. Occasionally the Shark had a little dingleberry of hair.

Essentially, you get what you pay for. The Roborock S6 is about $200 more on average, but is a fantastic machine in terms of navigation, but didn't work well for me on carpet.

I think the Shark definitely has positives. I think its negatives are in the software aspect, and maybe someday Shark will release an update that will make it a really good machine. For me, the 30 minutes of straight vacuuming and then 45+ minutes of it wandering aimlessly until it found the dock was really annoying and was what sealed the deal for its return.

The slickdeals redirect URL doesn't seem to want to work on mobile, here's the direct link to the deal: https://m.sharkclean.com/16/produ...ogv/?opt=2

You can also just find the deal by navigating to sharkclean.com and searching for the vacuum.

Try using incognito mode and opening sharkclean.com. On the desktop it appears as a popup ad when you load the page, mobile as a link in a slim pink banner at the top. Adblock may be an issue, but I've got a pihole DNS and adblock and it registers fine for me

Man self emptying is definitely the next level of robot vacuums but still too pricey. Rather have three ecovacs then one of these

Got the code finally, took about 45 minutes. FYI from what I've read a lot of people recommend the lifetime warranty, the coupon takes 10% of its cost as well for I got it for $90 also, making the whole thing $450

The link doesn't work for me. And I can see that I'm not the only one having the issue
