If you picture robot vacuums in your head, then you’re probably thinking of the iRobot Roomba, one of the most well-known and first brands of robot vacuums on the market. If you’ve always wanted to pick one up, then you’ll be happy to know that iRobot has a very wide selection of Roombas, from the very budget-friendly to the higher-end bundles that include two Roombas and a self-cleaning base station. Regardless, we’ve gone out and collected our favorite Roomba deals for you below so that you don’t have to.

The iRobot Roomba 694 is an entry-level model for the brand’s robot vacuums, but it won’t fall short in keeping your floors clean with its three-stage cleaning system that loosens, lifts, and suctions dirt and debris, and dual multi-surface brushes that work on all floor types. You can schedule when you want the robot vacuum to clean through the iRobot Home app or your preferred voice assistant, and once it’s done, it will return to its charging station where it will wait for the next session.

Another great budget option is the iRobot Roomba i1, which has a few extra functions that might be good for those who have pets and often deal with things like pet hair. It’s Wi-Fi connected and can be controlled by Google, plus it has all the mapping features that will keep it from constantly bumping into your walls and your furniture. That said, you do unfortunately miss out on having the self-emptying base station with this deal, but if that doesn’t bother you as much, then it’s well worth grabbing.

iRobot Roomba Combo i5 — $229, was $350

The iRobot Roomba Combo i5 is an affordable way of getting both a robot vacuum and a robot mop in one device. It will simultaneously vacuum and mop your floor, with its four-stage cleaning system with dual multi-surface rubber brushes that can adjust to different floor types and a specialized microfiber pad that can remove dirt and dust. You can pair the robot vacuum and mop with the iRobot Home app so you can give it instructions through your smartphone, or through your smart home devices powered by Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, or Google Assistant.

iRobot Roomba Combo i5+ — $349, was $850

If you like the idea of the iRobot Roomba Combo i5, then you’ll love this bundle that includes the self-emptying base station, and while it does add well over $100 to the cost, it’s worth grabbing if you want to save yourself the hassle. The self-emptying base station has up to 60 days’ worth of trash collection, which makes the robot vacuum a lot easier to maintain in the long run. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same as the previous version, with the combo mop and other features.

iRobot Roomba j7 — $375, was $369

The iRobot Roomba j7 comes with Roomba’s standard features on its robot vacuum, including its three-stage cleaning system with dual multi-surface rubber brushes and an edge-sweeping brush, and compatibility with your smartphone through the iRobot Home app or your favorite digital assistant. This robot vacuum, however, is a smarter one than the others, as it can easily avoid other objects on the floor, including pet waste, and it uses Imprint Smart Mapping to allow you to control and schedule where and when it will clean.

iRobot Roomba Combo j5+ — $449, was $800

The iRobot Roomba Combo j5+ is featured in our roundup of the best robot vacuums as the best budget pick if you want a robot vacuum and robot mop in one device. You’ll have to manually swap out its bin to switch it between vacuuming and mopping, but it’s powerful at both functions. It will unload the dirt and debris that it picks up into its vacuum bin, which you won’t have to empty for up to 60 days, and you can fill the combo bin with water or a compatible cleaning solution of your choice.

iRobot Roomba Combo j9+ — $999, was $1,399

The iRobot Roomba Combo j9+ is among the brand’s top-of-the-line models for a robot vacuum and robot mop combo, as its Clean Base Auto-Fill Dock can hold debris that it picks up for up to 60 days, and water or solution for up to 30 days of cleaning. It also features a retractable mopping system that lifts itself to the top to prevent getting certain surfaces such as carpets wet. For tough stains such as muddy paw prints and intense spills, you can activate the SmartScrub option for back-and-froth scrubbing until your floor is spotless again.
