UPDATE: Nov. 15, 2022, 4:15 p.m. EST This story has been updated to reflect the latest iRobot deals and stock info.
Whether your cleaning woes stem from having to vacuum at all or from babysitting the clumsy robot vac you currently own, Black Friday season is a great time to upgrade to a Roomba.
Rather than waiting to purchase until the end of November, early Black Friday sales mean that you can lock down a few extra weeks of clean floors at a low price. Retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Target kicked off their big shopping events in October, complete with a “Black Friday price” badge to let you know which deals are already at their best of the season.
While sales on Roombas are a bit more elusive than other brands during the year, early Black Friday sales are seeing no such shortage — a ton of Roombas are heavily discounted, many already at record-low prices.
Still comparing before making your final decision? We also have a pretty big list of live robot vacuum deals from brands like Shark, Roborock, and Ecovacs.
Please note: All newly added deals have been marked with a ✨, and all vacs marked with a ⚡️ are already at their official Black Friday price. Anything with a strikeout was either sold out or no longer available at the sale price as of this writing, but check back often — we’re updating this page constantly.
Best cheap Roomba deal
Why we like it
The cheapest (non-discontinued) Roomba we’ve seen so far during this Black Friday season is the 676. Though it’s a less-familiar model, the 676 is essentially a clone of the 692 and 694 models spotlighted last Black Friday. iRobot’s entry-level 600 Series offers a standard clean to keep floors tidy on a daily basis. Cleanings can be scheduled in the app based on your needs or custom cleaning suggestions.
Best self-emptying Roomba deal
Why we like it
“Roomba” and “budget-friendly self-emptying robot vacuum” typically aren’t seen together in the same sentence. But worlds collide with this early Black Friday deal on the Roomba i1+, now $59 cheaper than its sale price during Walmart+ Weekend in June. This mid-range Roomba cleans floors with 10 times the suction power of the 600 Series, then retreats to its dock to self-empty for up to 60 days at a time.
Best Roomba deal with room mapping
Why we like it
Even without the mopping functionality just announced for the Combo version of the j7+, the OG j7+ is still a super solid investment — especially now that it has dropped $20 below its previous all-time-low pricing from Amazon’s second Prime Day in October. The j7+ was the first Roomba to introduce Genius Technology and PrecisionVision Navigation to avoid small obstacles that were previously problem-causers, like phone chargers and pet waste. The j7+ also self-empties.
Room mapping and zone cleaning
P.O.O.P. (iRobot’s Pet Owner Official Promise) guarantees the j7+ will avoid pet waste or they’ll replace it for free
75-minute battery life
