Cyber Monday is a great time to look for deals on robot vacuums. Many stores have cut prices on the high-tech cleaning machines, including Amazon. While perusing its Cyber Monday deals, we stumbled upon a discount that's truly worth your time: Shark's IQ robot vacuum that comes with a self-empty base is 50 percent off—but only for a few more hours.
The modern vacuum cleaner does all of the hard work for you. It uses IQ navigation to clean rooms in efficient rows and has mapping technology, so it will remember exactly where to go and where to avoid. A multi-surface brush roll makes the vacuum suitable for carpeted and hard floors, where it will pick up dust, dirt, and dander. It's even Alexa- and Wi-Fi-compatible, so you can instruct it to start cleaning with the sound of your voice.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of this robot vacuum cleaner is its self-emptying base—one of the reasons this model is more expensive than other robot vacuums. The vacuum will empty any particles it picks up into the bagless base, which can hold about 45 days worth of debris. That means you can go more than a month without even thinking about cleaning out your vacuum. For some, that's the best gift of all.
To buy: $300 (was $600); amazon.com.
The robot vacuum usually goes for $600, but thanks to Amazon's massive Cyber Monday sale, it currently costs $300. The 50 percent discount equals a savings of $300 for shoppers who quickly get in on the deal. But you'll have to hurry: The sale price will disappear at midnight PT.
If you're still not sure the Shark IQ self-emptying robot vacuum is for you, take a look at the hundreds of five-star reviews and thousands of five-star ratings it's received from Amazon customers, including those with pets.
"This thing is the bomb," wrote one. "I love everything about this little guy, especially how he takes himself back to the dock and empties himself and then goes back to work. My floors and area rugs have never been cleaner."
Another reviewer with three dogs and a cat said, "We're just amazed. We recommend it to everyone."
Order the robot vacuum for yourself on Amazon while it's half off. Don't wait: The sale only lasts a few more hours!
