Black Friday is a great time to pick up big-ticket items while they’re deeply discounted, and robot vacuums fit that bill this year. It’s not hard to drop hundreds on an autonomous dirt-sucker at any other time of the year, but Black Friday deals have discounted a bunch of our favorite models. Before snagging a deal, think about the type of home you have and how you’ll use the machine: do you have carpet or mostly hard flooring? Do you have pets who shed constantly? Do you want a combo vacuum-and-mop machine? Once you have those details settled, check out the best deals on robot vacuums for Black Friday 2023 below.
iRobot Roomba 694
The Roomba 694 is on sale for $159 in this Black Friday deal. It’s our current favorite budget robot vacuum thanks to its strong suction power, easy to use mobile app and handy spot-clean function. It doesn’t come with a clean base, but it has Wi-Fi connectivity and voice control with Alexa.
Anker Eufy RoboVac 11S Max
As part of Anker’s Black Friday deals, the Eufy RoboVac 11S Max is down to $140, but a clippable $10 coupon will bring it down to $130. That’s close to a record low and a steal on one of the best affordable robot vacuums we’ve tested. This model has a super slim design, helping it clean underneath tables, couches and other furniture better than competing machines, and it has a solid battery life as well. It’s not Wi-Fi connected, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It comes with a handy remote with which you can control the machine, making it a decent option for anyone who’s never owned a robot vacuum before.
iRobot Roomba s9+
The Roomba s9+ is the most powerful model that iRobot makes, and it’s down to $600 for Black Friday. It’s usual high price tag may be prohibitive for most, but it’s a much better buy when you can get it on sale like this. We like it’s elegant design, extra-strong suction power, home mapping and object detection features, and the clean base that comes with it.
iRobot Roomba j7+
The Roomba j7+ robot vacuum has dropped to $469 for Black Friday. This model comes with a self-emptying base and it has advanced obstacle detection so it can avoid things like pet poop, should your furry friend have an accident. It also supports cleaning schedules via the iRobot mobile app and voice commands from Alexa, Siri and the Google Assistant.
Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 vacuum and mop
Shark’s AI Ultra robot vacuum and mop has been discounted to $400 for Black Friday. IT has all of the same features in the vacuum-only model, but it also includes a water reservoir and a mop pad with which it can automatically mop floors for you. You have to switch out the dustbin for the reservoir whenever you want to mop, but otherwise the machine is pretty automated and convenient. The self-emptying base that comes with this model is also bagless.
TP-Link Tapo RV10 Plus
TP-Link’s Tapo RV10 Plus has dropped to $250 for Black Friday. It’s normally a decently priced robot vacuum and mop, but this discount makes it an even better buy. In our testing, it did a good job vacuuming and mopping, and it has a pretty good battery life as well. It comes with a self-emptying base, and its companion mobile app is simply to use and provides detailed information about the machine, including suggested maintenance tips.
