Shark Rocket Pro cordless stick vacuum (IZ140) $199.99 with free shipping & no tax (or $150 with extra work/YMMV)
- Deal Link:
- December 7, 2019
I saw a thread about a lightning deal on a Shark Rocket Pro cordless stick vacuum so I thought I make this thread for anyone who is interested in a cordless stick vacuum but wasn't interested in getting (or wasn't lucky enough to get) a Dyson stick vacuum. The Shark IZ140 is in the same segment as the Dyson V series stick vacs but is a lot cheaper and has two features that arguably makes it better than the Dyson: 1) the Multi-flex feature to allow the wand to bend at various angles so it can reach under furniture, and 2) the zero-m brush head performs better at picking up hair and not getting tangled in the brush compared with other brands.
Here's how you can get the IZ140 for $199.99 or even $150 with some extra work. I'll borrow heavily from @TheGoodDealer's Shark robot vacuum's post since he has it laid out nicely on how to get the deal.
First of all, the link to the Shark Rocket Pro cordless stick vacuum (IZ140) is here: https://www.sharkclean.com/exclusive-of ... brushroll/
What is the deal?
- For some reason shark charges Canadians the USD price but at the equivalent dollar number in CAD (ie. $249 USD = $249 CAD).
- In addition to this, once the vacuum ships you should be refunded the tax you initially paid. You will see the tax at checkout and initial CC/paypal charge, but the final charge on your credit card/paypal will be the cost without tax (once the order ships).
- At checkout apply coupon CYBER20 for an additional 25% off your order (bringing it down to $199.99). Coupon is valid until December 7.
- No duties or taxes have been reported being due on delivery by Fedex, even though the product is shipped from the States.
- Similar to what people have done over at the Shark IQ robot vacuum thread, once the item ships or after you've received the product, if you contact Shark (via Live Chat or by calling in) and tell them you've found a better deal elsewhere, or that you are thinking of buying a Dyson and returning the Shark, they may offer you an additional 20% (off the original price of $249) which works out to an additional $50 off, bringing the grand total all-in price down to $150CAD for the IZ140.
- This Shark vacuum has a 60 day free return guarantee, plus a 5-year VIP warranty.
Why am I getting invalid zip code error when ordering? /// Why am I getting dinged with a $25 international surcharge on checkout?
Try mobile, desktop, and an incognito session. Their checkout experience isn't consistent. You may also try the below process.
- Go to checkout with the vacuum
- Enter your coupon code
- Enter your address, but when you get to postal code enter 90210
- Enter the remaining details, phone number, billing same as shipping, and continue
- Should get a popup to validate address, now change it to your correct address and click retry search
- Use suggested address, should direct you to payment confirmation without the international surcharge.
Will I be charged taxes/duties on delivery?
I don't believe any other users from the robot vacuum thread (including myself) have been charged duties and there were many who already bought, should be very good odds of no taxes/duties.
How do I get the additional 20% off?
After your item has shipped or you've received it contact their live support during business hours here and selecting the live chat option on the lower right hand corner. Again... this is only available during business hours (PST) and you will need a reason (e.g. upcoming black friday/cyber monday deals, vacuum isn't as great as you expected, etc).
If you are interested in the Pet Pro version that has a HEPA filter and a couple more attachments (but you lose the flexible wand), you can get it for about $50 more: https://www.sharkclean.com/exclusive-of ... brushroll/
