Owning a dog or cat can be one of life’s biggest pleasures — but it can also be at odds with, you know, owning furniture and clothing. Picking up all that pet hair on a regular basis is downright exhausting, especially if the vacuum you’re using, well, sucks.
If all you see is hair, hair, everywhere, then it’s probably time for a serious upgrade. Walmart’s got you covered with a half-price deal on the powerhouse Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Healthy Home Edition. Recommended by a whopping 92 percent of customers, this lean, mean cleaning machine is just $99 today — so you save $100.
And, you’ll get free unlimited shipping with Walmart+. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, but a quick three question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
The Shark Navigator is a standout particularly when it comes to furry friends thanks to its Pet Power Brush, which eradicates every trace of hair and fur on upholstery, sofas, beds and other above-floor areas.
In fact, one owner of three long-haired cats said this vac was “a life-changer” after growing frustrated with their Bissell. “There were hairballs on the carpet...and the suction wasn't strong enough,” they wrote, showing images of two Shark canisters filled with hair. ”I vacuumed the two rooms with this as soon as I got home, the rooms I had JUST vacuumed, and ALL THIS came up!”
The Shark Navigator may be a killer when it comes to uprooting every ounce of dirt, debris and pet hair from carpets and rugs, but it’s also gentle enough to clean hardwood floors without a single scratch. In fact, it’s got a Brushroll shutoff feature that makes sure of that.
Allergens are also no match for this beast. It boasts a built-in HEPA filter and what’s called Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology, so dust mites, dander, and other sneeze inducers are gone for good with just a once-over. It gets right into hard-to-reach spots too, and when the crud-gathering job is done, the canister lifts out easily for quick emptying.
Customers also say the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Healthy Home Edition is a powerful alternative to pricey designer vacuums like the Kirby. “We have owned a Kirby for years. To test it out, we vacuumed with the Kirby first and then followed with the Shark,” wrote one convert. “The Shark picked up so much more. We filled the canister about one third of the way full AFTER the carpet was done with the Kirby.”
Some reviewers can barely believe something so easy to steer and maneuver can be so effective at cleaning every surface so flawlessly. “This can't be right!,” wrote one. “This is the most amazing vacuum ever! It is powerful for its size!! I was blown away...it is small too, so it gets in cracks and between stuff easily.”
Right now, Walmart is making this purchase a no-brainer for spring-cleaning season by knocking $100 off the regular retail price. Just $99 for a vacuum this powerful is almost unheard of, but this steal is the real deal.
This shopper is sure glad they switched to the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Healthy Home Edition.
“I bought a standard upright canister vac from Walmart a few years ago and thought it was pretty good until I got this one, my first Shark,” they wrote. “After one use with this, I was both disgusted and amazed at the amount of DIRT that came up out of my area rugs along with the [pet] hair. I'd say I was getting maybe a quarter of that amount of dirt picked up before, and now I'm obsessed with this thing and want to use it everywhere, every day.”
