While we’ve written about the best “traditional” vacuum cleaners, including our top recommendation, our pick for carpet and rugs, and our pick for hardwood, it’s hard to beat the convenience of robot vacuums. (Check out our recommendations for the best robot vacuums for pets, too.) These handy, cordless appliances simply one of life’s most tedious cleaning tasks, gliding around your floors and carpet to suck up dirt, crumbs, debris, and hair.

If you’re looking to invest in a quality robot vacuum — and score a major deal — consider the iRobot Roomba i6, which is currently 45 percent off. You can program the Wi-Fi connected cleaner to operate on a schedule, so it can help keep your home spotless while you’re away or asleep. It will also self-charge when it’s low on battery. We’ve tested and reviewed iRobot’s Roomba models before, and while we haven’t tested the i6 specifically, we have written about its cousin, the Roomba i7+ 7550, which we named as the best self-emptying vacuum.

We haven’t seen a robot vacuum — let alone a model from a trusted brand like iRobot — this steeply discounted before, so if you’re interested, don’t dillydally.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
