For a flagship-quality vacuum, Wellbots has now discounted the iRobot Roomba S9+ to $799 ($200 off) when you use the code ‘ZD200’. In the Roomba S9+ you get a powerful vacuum cleaner that can suck up dirt and pet hair thanks to the 3-stage cleaning system. It also comes with an automatic dirt remover base that can hold up to 30 bins before you need to manually clear it. When paired with the iRobot Home app, the Roomba S9+ behaves much more autonomously than most robot vacuums – and it’s now cheaper than ever.

Contested as one of the best in its price range, the iRobot Roomba j7+ is a reliable smart machine that can automatically remove the grime it collects with every run. iRobot promises up to 60 days of automatic removal, and with app-enabled mapping, Alexa voice control, and the ability to vacuum pet hair and carpets, it’s hard to find the flaws with this vacuum. Right now, Wellbots will discount the Roomba at $200 if you use the code ‘ZD200’.

eufy RoboVac 30C MAX for $179

Known for making low-cost robot vacuums, Eufy is doing it again with the RoboVac 30C MAX. The vacuum cleaner has a suction power of 2000 Pa, is quiet and uses what the brand calls “BoostIQ” to automatically optimize its brushes for cleaning carpets and hardwoods. While you can control the robot remotely, you won’t find the typical app pairing features of more expensive competitors. Fortunately, that’s one of the few drawbacks that makes this offering much more affordable.

This is the lowest price we’ve seen.

iHome AutoVac Nova for $198

With nearly 60% off, the iHome AutoVac Nova can be purchased for just $198 (from $599) at Walmart. Although heavier than traditional robot vacuums, the AutoVac Nova has a suction power of 2,700 Pa and comes with a modular cleaning system. Basically, it can remove dust and grime from your floors and use the Power Mop feature to wipe everything clean right after.

For how much this typically costs, the $198 price tag is a good deal for the hardware.

Shark AV911S EZ for $389

One of Amazon’s bestsellers, the Shark AV911S EZ is a reliable robot vacuum that can clean row by row, is compatible with hard floors and carpets, works with Google Assistant and Alexa voice control and more. Like the iRobot mentioned above, the Shark is accompanied by a self-clearing base to which it returns after each thorough cleaning.

While the lowest price we’ve seen is $379, it’s still a great deal as we don’t expect it to drop to $379 anytime soon.

What is the best robot vacuum for me?

There are a lot of robot vacuum cleaners on the market. Whether you’re a new homeowner or just looking for a handy assistant for cleaning needs, here’s what to ask yourself before you buy:

  • What type of floor does your home have? Are there carpets? Wood? ceramics? Certain robot vacuums come with bristles and brushes suitable for specific floor types, and some can even mop your hard surfaces. When buying a new robot, look for keywords like “Combo Brush” and “No Hair Wrap,” which suggest different floor cleaning options.
  • Do you have pets? Pet hair can be a nuisance to clean, but luckily robot vacuums can sweep it up just as easily as dust and grime. Just search for ‘Pet Friendly’ in the item descriptions.
  • Are you too busy to clean the vacuum cleaner? Robotic vacuums are meant to save you a few chores a week, but if you’re very busy and just don’t have the time to throw them out every cycle, look for “self-emptying” vacuums. While these models cost more than the standard ones, self-emptying robots come with a disposable trash can that they return to after each cleaning.

Do I need an app to use the robot vacuum cleaner?

It is not mandatory to have a smartphone to use your vacuum cleaner. iRobot, Ecovacs, Eufy and more come with physical switches that prompt the robot vacuums to turn on, clean, and stop.

However, most robot vacuums these days come with companion apps that let you dictate cleaning schedules, no-go zones, map spaces, and more. They are usually free to download, available on iOS and Android, and give you added flexibility and control over your robot vacuum.

How often should I empty the dustbin of my robot vacuum cleaner?

This depends on how much dust and dirt is collected from your floor. Based on the countless robot vacuums we’ve tested, it takes an average of 3 to 4 days before the trash can needs to be cleaned. Alternatively, you can buy a “self-emptying” robot vacuum, which comes with its own automatic emptying station.
