Reason: Title edit
Thread Summary
- tax may be charged to your credit card initially but it should come off once your vacuum ships
- do not try the live chat to get the extra 20% off until you get the shipping confirmation email
- apparently using the "low" or "quiet" setting instead of the "high" setting makes this vacuum quieter and it still works great in terms of suction
- when you place your order, do not put a space in the middle of your postal.
If it still states invalid postal/zip code, then enter a zip code such as 90210 and press enter. Then on the resulting popup window enter your correct address and click on the 'retry search' link to have it verify your address.

Chat button is found on the Order Status page - Click Me - It only is available during business hours.

It should be taken off when it ships. If you look at the Roomba and ILIFE vac threads you'll find a lot of us who ordered and reported there.

Sharks vac is pretty new, so I don't think the software is all there yet but the hardware seems good. Hoping with time they improve and catch up to the competitors a bit, they do seem to be updating it somewhat regularly. I orederd mine last week as well.

BTW, credit to padlock who found the deal.

Taxes taken off at the time of shipment as reported by RFD members. Mine is yet to ship and it's charged in cdn dollars-verified.

So CAD 404.46 all inclusive for an advanced(not perfect) Robot Vacuum.
Did you discover this deal? Someone else mentioned this deal in the other robot vacuum threads last week.
Just checking if credit should be given to the one who first shared this deal to us

From what I can see, there seems to be 2 cases here:
1. You dont get charged at all with tax from the get go, someone mentioned that they had to go incognito to do this but I tried it and it didnt work.

2. You get charged with tax from beginning, but you get the tax back once you are refunded as you can see from my statement. I first got charged the 457 but once it was shipped, they refunded the 457 and charged me 404.

Either way it seems like its tax free and no conversion rate which makes this deal super hot.

You should get the tax back once they have been shipped.
