Vacuuming is one of those chores that can be absolutely brutal, but with the right tool, what can be mind-numbing and time-consuming can instead be—dare we say it—almost enjoyable. Too bad, then, that some of the best vacuum cleaners are so often available at astronomical prices; it’s not unusual to see brand-name upright vacuums or robot vacuums priced upwards of $200, and more affordable options often don’t last long (or lack the suction power needed for a thorough clean).

Luckily for those looking to stick to a budget, though, every so often a good deal rolls around—like this exclusive deal on the Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Speed Upright Vacuum.

To buy: Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Speed Upright Vacuum, $160 (usually $300) with promo code REALSIMPLESHARK;

Until November 30, Real Simple readers can save 46 percent, or more than $100 dollars, on the vacuum with code REALSIMPLESHARK. At about $160 with the discount, this is the lowest price for the vacuum anywhere online—Amazon has it priced at $250.

Yes, $160 is still a solid chunk of change to spend on a vacuum cleaner, but this one certainly offers plenty of features to make it a good value: It’s able to pick up large and small debris, so messes big and small will be sucked up, rather than pushed around the floor. The vacuum comes with a pet multi-tool and a duster crevice tool, among other attachments, and it has a detachable canister to help clean hard-to-reach spaces, cars, upholstery, and more. The nozzle even has LED headlights, so no crumb-strewn dark corner can escape a thorough cleaning.

The exclusive promo code REALSIMPLESHARK is available to Real Simple readers from now until November 30; visit for more information on the vacuum’s features.
