Just in time for holiday shopping, Amazon is offering a deal on a Roomba robot vacuum that would make a great gift for friends, family or, of course, yourself!
Regularly priced at $550, the iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO is now $349 for a limited time, giving you a savings of $200. The Roomba maps out your home so it knows where to vacuum, self-empties for up to 60 days and works with Amazon Alexa.
The base it comes with allows this robot vacuum to empty itself into an enclosed bag that captures dirt and dust and holds them for up to 60 days. It also includes multi-surface rubber brushes that adjust to the floor type and even suggests extra cleanings during allergy and pet-shedding season.
With nearly 14,000 reviews at Amazon so far, the Roomba i3 has an overall rating of 4.3 stars out of 5, with customers commonly saying it does a good job, is great for pet hair, has good battery life and is worth the money at full price.
One customer who gave the vacuum a perfect grade says it’s worth every penny and that it works great in a house with two shedding dogs.
“I am very very impressed at how good this thing cleans,” Amazon customer Yamil Hernandez wrote. “Being a small unit I didn’t expect much suction power but I was all wrong. After it’s first full sweep around the house we pulled the bag from the tower and we’re so shocked at how much fuzz and hair it picked up.”
Some customers did not have as glowing of a review, however, with some saying the connected app does not work well, which makes it hard to set up schedules or turn on the vacuum when they’re away. Others say that it works great on hardwood floors but doesn’t do as well on carpet, so you may want to consider that if your home is carpeted.
Not the robot vacuum for you? Amazon has dozens of others to choose from, including some that are also on sale.
This Shark AI Robot Vacuum, regularly priced at $650, is on an even bigger discount than the Roomba, currently on sale for $400 for a savings of $250.
The Shark robot vacuum is bagless and self-emptying, with a HEPA filter that captures and traps 99.97% of dust and allergens. The vacuum also has a rating of 4.3 stars out of 5, with customers saying it’s great for high-traffic areas and that its self-emptying feature works well.
For one that is lower-priced, this Eufy by Anker vacuum is priced at $229, but is currently on sale for $199, plus you can apply a $60 coupon, which takes the total down to $139!
The Eufy by Anker robot vacuum has a whopping 62,000 reviews and and even better rating than the more expensive options, at 4.4 stars out of 5. Customers say it does a good job, is great for pet hair, has good suction power and battery life, and is easy to clean.
