If you’re tired of lugging your traditional vacuum cleaner from room to room every weekend, then it may be time to upgrade to a robot vacuum. iRobot makes some of our favorite models on the market for 2023, and right now, you can grab one for less at its ongoing spring savings sale. Select models are up to $500 off, and with prices ranging from $180 to $1,000, there’s options for every need and budget. These deals are available through May 13, so be sure to get your order in before then if you don’t want to miss out on these savings.
There are a plethora of vacuum models available at a discount right now, with the Roomba 694 being the most affordable option. It’s been marked down from $275 to just $180 and comes with dual multisurface brushes, advanced sensors to navigate around furniture and edges, and it can learn your habits to create a customized cleaning schedule for you. It’s also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant and can clean for up to 90 minutes per charge.
Or snag one of our favorite robot vacuums of the year, the Roomba J7 Plus. It’s $600 right now, saving you $200 compared with the list price, and it’s a great option for pet owners. The J7 Plus adds AI-powered cameras that can recognize and avoid obstacles like dog poop, which can prevent you coming home to a horrific smeared mess. It also includes a self-emptying bin that can hold up to 60 days worth of debris. And if you also want a robot to mop your floors, check out the Roomba Combo J7 Plus. It will vacuum and mop at the same time — and the mop portion automatically lifts away when carpet is detected. Normally $1,100, this two-in-one model is also $200 off right now, dropping the price down to $900.
Another great choice is the Roomba S9 Plus, which won a CNET Editors’ Choice Award in 2022 and remains our pick for the best robot vacuum for pet hair and plush carpets. This vac will build smart maps of your home and automatically detects objects in its path. Its high-efficiency filter traps up to 99% of cat and dog allergens so you can breathe easy. iRobot says it offers 40x the suction power of the 600 series, and in our testing it did pick up every clump of pet hair and more debris than other models we tested at the time. It also has a base that holds up to 60 days of debris so you don’t have to think about vacuuming for up to two months and it cleans for up to 120 minutes per charge. You can grab the standard S9 Plus for $750 right now, saving you $250, or you can bundle it with a Braava Jet M6 robot mop for total floor care for $1,000, which is $500 off the usual price.
There are plenty of other models available as well, so be sure to shop the entire sale selection. Or check out our roundup of all the best robot vacuum deals for even more bargains.
