Select iRobot robotic vacuums and mops are on sale on Amazon for up to 43% off as of Dec. 2:
Need a new vacuum, but missed out on this year’s Cyber Weekend sales? Don’t worry about it— Consumer Reports’ 2020 Best Time to Buy Things list says the whole month of December is one of the few times of the year where we see deep discounts on vacuums across most major retailers. (The other times being August, ahead of Labor Day; November, ahead of Black Friday; and March through April — that’s when stores run spring cleaning deals and typically discount older models to make way for new ones, according to The Spruce.)
Indeed, Amazon still has kept several iRobot robotic vacuums and mops on sale at their Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices as of Dec. 2, with discounts as high as 43% on select models. (See? You didn’t really miss out at all.) Here’s the lowdown:
Boasting ten times the suction of iRobot’s popular 600-series models, the Roomba i7 is a powerful and sleek robot vacuum with some brains to match: It comes equipped with adaptive navigation and Smart Mapping technologies on top of virtual assistant compatibility. (It works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.) The last time we checked, it was still on sale at its $399 Cyber Monday pricing — that’s a whole 43% off its $699.99 MSRP.
With iRobot’s patented 3-Stage Cleaning system, Dirt Detect sensors, advanced navigation, and smart assistant support, the Roomba 675 is probably the ultimate starter Roomba. It usually retails for $279.99, but Amazon dropped it down to just $179 on Black Friday and hasn’t raised the price since.
Hardwood floors need a good spiffing-up? Enter: the iRobot Braava Jet M6, a voice-controlled robotic mop with a Precision Jet Spray, Smart Mapping, and Imprint Link technology, which allows it to work in tandem with select Roombas for thorough whole-house cleaning. Data on the price-tracking site camelcamelcamel shows that it’s been on sale for $399 since mid-November, which is a solid 20% off its suggested retail price of $499.99.

An affordable, non-smart alternative to the Braava Jet M6 that’s perfect for small bathrooms and kitchens, the Braava Jet *240* is a quiet and compact robotic mop with three different cleaning modes (wet mopping, damp mopping, and dry sweeping). Amazon’s still offering its $179 Cyber Weekend pricing, which is 10% off its $199 MSRP.
Rated highly by Amazon reviews for its hair-cleaning abilities, the all-new Roomba i3 is a great pick for dog and cat households. Get it on sale at its Cyber Weekend price of only $299, or 25% off its $399.99 MSRP.
The upgraded Roomba i3+ gets you a self-emptying base and smart assistant compatibility. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but it’s still just as cheap as it was throughout Cyber Weekend, when Amazon put it on sale for $399 (or 33% off its usual retail price of $599.99).
Featuring a self-emptying dirt bin, super-strong suction, and mapping technology that can remember up to 10 unique floorplans, the smart Roomba i7+ happens to be Mashable’s favorite robot vacuum on the market. It’s been on sale for $599 since the day before Cyber Monday — that’s 40% off its suggested retail price of $999.99, which is its biggest discount yet on Amazon.
