UPDATE: Feb. 9, 2024, 11:50 a.m. EST Best Buy‘s Drop for Feb. 9 is a $249.99 Shark FlexStyle ($50 off), which went live at 11 a.m. ET. Inventory isn’t tanking as fast as it did when Best Buy dropped the FlexStyle to $199.99 during Cyber Week, but we’ll update this post accordingly when it inevitably sells out.
In almost every situation, we’d tell you to opt for the Shark FlexStyle over the Dyson Airwrap because it’s simply the better bang for your buck. And remember that that’s our argument when both are at full price — so you can imagine our enthusiasm for the Coanda-powered dupe when it can be snagged for $249.99 as the Best Buy Drop of the day (compared to the $599.99 tag on the Airwrap).
The $250 Shark FlexStyle is Best Buy’s featured Drop item for Feb. 9 and is exclusively available through the Best Buy Drops tab (the one with the arrow in the middle) in the Best Buy mobile app. The deal won’t show up on a web browser, so without the app, you’ll just be seeing the not-as-fun $36 discount that Best Buy currently has tacked onto the original $299.99. Drops go live at 11 a.m. ET and last only until the limited supply has been claimed, so don’t hesitate to head to the Best Buy app and check out.
We first saw the FlexStyle featured in Best Buy Drops on the Tuesday after Black Friday weekend in Nov. 2023. That time, it was going for $199.99 — though we barely had time to spread the good news before inventory tanked within 20 minutes of dropping. We had hoped for a repeat of that deal this time around, but $50 off is still a pretty rare discount for this styler, and we don’t expect it to last until the official 6 p.m. cutoff for Drops.
The FlexStyle featured here comes with four attachments: two 1.25-inch auto-wrap curlers, an oval brush, a paddle brush, and a styling concentrator, all of which can be swapped onto the wand base with a quick twist and click. The same bundle is going for $279.99 at Shark’s website.
