Shark ION Robot Black Friday Price Predictions
The Shark ION robot vacuum was released last year into a market already established with big players like Samsung, Roomba, Neato and Eufy. However, it has gained considerable traction and is now one of the most popular robot vacuums. With a new model just released, what Shark ION robot Black Friday deals are we predicting for 2018? Will all the models be discounted?
The previous R72 and R75 models were released just before Black Friday last year, but there were still discounts in the region of 10-13%. We saw similar deals on these models during Prime Day in 2018, so think there is a good chance of similar Black Friday Shark ION Robot deals on the R72 and R75 this year.
However, since the premium R85 model has only just been released there isn’t any price data yet! If last year is anything to go by, there could still be Shark ION Robot Black Friday deals on this model. Any we find will be posted right here!
