Time is running out to get this Roomba robot vacuum for $180

iRobot Roomba 694 at Best Buy - WiFi connected robot vacuum

Black Friday has already ended but those Cyber Monday deals are just around the corner and if you still need a Roomba, this one from Best Buy on the Roomba 694 is pretty good, discounting it to $180 from $275. That means you can grab an entry-level robot vacuum for bargain-bin prices, which is a great way to get into the robot vacuum world. But this deal might not stick around for much longer, so if you know you need a Roomba you should jump on this deal right away, especially since other deals like this one have already sold out.

Why you should buy the iRobot Roomba 694

While the iRobot Roomba 694 doesn’t have more advanced features like some of the best self-emptying robot vacuums, it still has features that work well for basic home cleaning and maintenance. For example, it has a three-stage cleaning system that helps pick up different types of debris, from the finer powders to the chunkier stuff like cereal. It also has a couple of brushes to work on different surfaces, making it suitable for carpet and hardwood flooring. There’s also a brush that works great for picking up finer and small hair and getting into harder-to-reach spots like corners.

Beyond that, the 694 has some intelligent features that allow it to navigate your home without constantly bumping into stuff, and even though it’s not perfect, it’s fun to watch sometimes. That’s not where the smarts stop, though, since they can learn your schedule and start cleaning around that so that you don’t have to be bothered when you’re back from work. It also automatically goes to charge itself, so it’s hassle-free, for the most part, and the 90-minute charge time is pretty generous for a robot vacuum, which we appreciate. Even better, you can control it through virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant, and while you can’t just tell it to wash the dishes as 90’s cartoons promised us, you can ask it to stop, start, and clean specific rooms.

While the 694 doesn’t quite make it on our list of the best robot vacuums, it’s a great entry-level option at a great value, especially with the deal from Best Buy bringing it down to $180 from $275.

Sonos One and Sonos One SL prices slashed for a limited time

If you're thinking about taking advantage of Bluetooth speaker deals, why not go for smart speakers instead? Best Buy just slashed the prices of the Sonos One SL and the second-generation Sonos One, with the Sonos One SL down to $159 from $200 for $41 in savings and the Sonos One Gen 2 down to $175 from $220 for $45 in savings. Either of these smart speakers will be an amazing addition to your home, but you're going to have to hurry with choosing which one to purchase because these offers are only available for a limited time. If you take too long with your decision, you may miss out on both bargains.
Sonos One SL -- $159, was $200

The Sonos One SL is a more affordable version of the first-generation Sonos One, but it comes with most of the smart speaker's most helpful features such as the capability to play room-filling sound with its tweeter and a mid-woofer, compatibility with the Sonos Controller app so you can search for songs and control playback through your smartphone or tablet, and support for Apple AirPlay 2 to easily stream music from your iPhone or iPad. Two Sonos One SL smart speakers can pair up for stereo sound, or connect with a Sonos soundbar to enable surround sound. The Sonos One SL doesn't have a microphone though, which means it doesn't work with voice assistants.
