Spring cleaning is a breeze with a versatile Shark cordless stick vacuum for only $78


Save $49: This Shark Rotator Freestyle cordless stick vacuum is only $78.94 at Walmart as of March 25. If you want cleaner floors the easy way, a reliable robot vacuum or mop is often a worthwhile investment. But the best options also come with a higher price tag, which is why sometimes you still can't beat the effectiveness of a manual upright vacuum that's available at a steep discount. Take for instance the Shark SV1110 Rotator Freestyle cordless stick vacuum. Available for just $78.94, you save 38% off the original price which undercuts most robot options and is cheaper than Amazon's current listings.
