The Roomba 890 runs for up to 90 minutes on a single battery charge. The robotic vacuum navigates on its own around and under furniture, sweeping edges and corners as it goes. With automatic floor sensing, the Roomba recognizes when it moves from hard floors to carpeting and adjusts to efficiently clean different surfaces. Using iRobot’s patented 3-stage system, the 890 loosens, lifts, and sections dirt, dust, debris, and pet hair into its easy-to-empty dust bin. This model has up to five times the suction power of the Roomba 600 series robot vacuum cleaned.

You can carry the Roomba 890 from room to room if you wish, it weighs only 8.4 pounds. Otherwise, you can just let it clean all the floors on a single level independently. Internal obstacle detectors keep it from bumping into furniture, and drop detection prevents it from falling down stairs or landings. The 890 also respects virtual boundaries established with iRobot Dual Mode Virtual Wall Barriers. One barrier is included in the purchase if you wish to prevent the Roomba 890 from bumping into pet food or water dishes, for example.

Because the Roomba 890 is only 3.6 inches high, it easily rolls under most furniture and beds, sucking up all those hard-to-reach areas that attract a multitude of dust bunnies in the cleanest homes. The Roomba 890 also helps keep your air clean. A built-in AeroForce High-Efficiency Filter traps particles as small as 10 microns, which accounts for 99% of the allergens, pollens, and particles in the air in most homes. When the vacuum senses the battery is low, it automatically goes back to its charging/docking station.

You can control the Roomba 890 using the iRobot Home app. You can use the app to set up cleaning schedules, so the only task you’ll have remaining is to empty the dust bin occasionally. You can also configure the Roomba 890 to respond to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant voice commands to start, stop, or return to its docking station.

Normally priced at $500, the iRobot Roomba Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum is only $300 at Best Buy for this one-day sale. If you have been waiting for a great deal on a Roomba or just need a powerful robot vacuum to take over floor-cleaning chores in your home, act soon because this sale ends at midnight Central Time tonight, May 1.
