When it comes to getting your home spick and span, there’s nothing quite like having a robot vacuum on hand. They’re efficient, easy to use and super low lift. But as convenient as they are, these smart little cleaning devices can easily set you back a few hundred dollars.
Thankfully, you can score a major discount on one of Amazon’s most popular vacuums. Originally priced at $599, the iRobot Roomba i3+ Robot Vacuum is now up for grabs for $386.11. That’s just over $200 in savings!

The beauty of this device is that it picks up itself, which thankfully means no immediate dumping required. After each cleaning, the i3+ empties all dirt and debris into an “AllergenLock” bag that helps trap “99 percent of mold and pollen.”
Additionally, it does some pretty heavy-duty work on carpet and hard floors thanks to a unique three-stage cleaning system and dual multi-surface rubber brushes. Also, special sensors help the i3+ stay on track and clean areas that need it the most. It even suggests extra cleanings when the pollen count is high, which can be a huge plus for folks with allergies and pets.
As a bonus, you can command it through Alexa or Google Assistant.
For some Amazon shoppers, the device is a total home-run. In fact, one reviewer wrote, “[It’s the] best Roomba I’ve ever owned.”
“I love that I can use Alexa/Google to start the vacuum, and I love that I can use it over and over and over again without ever touching it or needing to empty the bin,” they explained. “I have a 1,000 square-foot open floor plan with tons of furniture and different rugs and the navigation system is fantastic.”
Another shopper explained how well the vacuum picked up pet hair.
“[It] works better than sweeping and vacuuming,” they noted. “We have three shedding dogs: a Golden, a Border Collie, and a Jack Russell. [The] dog hair has disappeared, [and it was] nicely done. Unsure how long it lasts at top performance, but so far so good.”
However, one common complaint reviewers mentioned about the device was its “louder” noise level. But even so, this didn’t appear to be a dealbreaker for other shoppers.
