Roombas are known for easy-peasy home cleaning, with their robotic vacuuming feeling part futuristic, part super convenient, and part just plain awesome. But they can also carry sky-high price tags. Today on Amazon, however, you can get the iRobot Roomba 981 for $400, down from a list price of $589 and the cheapest price we’ve seen it.
This robot vacuum’s power-lifting suction increases automatically when it moves onto carpet, ensuring a deep clean no matter which surface type it’s cleaning. Floor-tracking sensors allow it to find its way around your home and clean in neat rows, while Dirt Detect sensors allow for a deeper clean in high-traffic areas. If you have pets, dual multi-surface rubber brushes will come in handy, as they won’t get tangled up with pet hair, and the vacuum’s high-efficiency filter will capture 99% of pet allergens, according to Roomba. In addition, this Roomba can learn schedules and connect to Google Assistant and Alexa, so you can control it with just your voice.
This robot vacuum averages 4.5 stars out of 5 across more than 600 user ratings on Amazon.
