Amazon drops prices of premium iRobot Roomba robot vacuums

House cleaning, although necessary, is probably one of our least favorite things to do, and it can really eat up your free time. While it’s impossible to neglect all these chores, you can at least lessen the load with a little robot vacuum to help you out. This workhorse has the built-in smart tech and cleaning power needed to tackle daily floor dirt. Some of the latest models can even be controlled hands-free and can automatically empty themselves, making it possible for you to vacuum with minimal to zero effort on your part.

If you’re willing to splurge on a robot vacuum, you’re going to want to stick to premium models from the iRobot Roomba line. Some of our favorites are the Roomba S9+ and the Roomba i7+, and right now, both models are enjoying price cuts on Amazon. Take advantage of these great Roomba deals and score a tidy savings of $201.

iRobot Roomba S9+ — $1,099 ($201 off)

The iRobot Roomba S9+ is so good that our reviewer even dubbed it the iPhone 11 Pro Max of robot vacuums. Its stellar performance simply knocks down any other competitor in the market. The iRobot team decided to build this model from the ground up, making it not only noticeably different from other Roombas in design but also significantly beefier under the hood.

With the S9+, iRobot veered away from the signature hockey puck-inspired design of its previous Roombas and went instead for a flat-fronted, D-shaped profile. This new look, combined with a larger, powerful cleaning head and a motor that’s 40 times stronger than that of older generations, allows for enhanced cleaning prowess on multiple surfaces as well as corners and edges. A new 3D sensor has also been added to the front bumper for additional boost in floor navigation, wall detection, and avoidance of obstacles.

Once the robot starts cleaning, you’ll be impressed with its performance. Its cleaning system does an excellent job of dislodging, sweeping, and picking up dust and debris on various surfaces like rugs, carpets, and hard floors. Dirt is then ejected into the AllergenLock bags to ensure that pollen and other allergens are effectively trapped. You’ll also be able to switch among different cleaning modes and fine-tune the suction power and cleaning passes for optimal operation.

Upgrades in the connection of the robot and the CleanBase dirt disposal charging station were also made to achieve a better seal during emptying. When the robot completes a cleaning job, it will scurry back to the base for recharging. The CleanBase will then suck the dirt out of the robot and transfer it into the bag. The bag has the capacity to hold up to 30 bins of dust and debris from the robot and can even self-close when extracted from the base.

Anyone who has the cash to splash out on a robot vacuum won’t find anything better than the iRobot Roomba s9+. Normally selling for $1,300, this premium model is now available at a sale price of $1,099.


iRobot Roomba i7+ — $799 ($200 off)

Fancy a self-emptying robot vacuum but find the S9+ too rich for your blood? The Roomba i7+ is a great alternative. This model earned an impressive 4-out-of-5-star rating along with an Editor’s Choice seal from the Digital Trends review team. Its automatic dirt disposal provides a solid level of convenience as it does the messy job of dirt disposal for you after each clean. Dust and debris are neatly deposited into the enclosed bag which has enough capacity for a maximum of 30 cleans. The smart charge technology also means the robot will recharge and resume cleaning automatically until the job is complete.

The robot in the Roomba i7+ uses a patented three-stage system to clean hard floors and carpets. This consists of the dual multi-surface brushes that loosen dirt and debris for more intense cleaning, the auto-adjust cleaning head which ensures close contact between the brushes and the surface being cleaned, and the powerful lifting suction that efficiently picks up dirt.

The Roomba i7+ boasts Imprint Smart Mapping which is a step up over previous models. This technology works with cameras and sensors to guide the robot in mastering the floor layout of each room. This way, you can simply select which and when rooms are cleaned through the iRobot Home app.

Although now overshadowed by the latest S9+, the i7+ remains an excellent choice for homeowners in the market for a high-end robot vacuum. This former best robot vacuum can now be yours at a discounted price of $799.


Both models listed above connect to the Wi-Fi and can be controlled either through the app or hands-free via Alexa or Google Assistant compatibility. If you prefer something more budget-friendly, here are other Roomba robot vacuums that are also on sale:
