TL;DR: The Alexa-compatible iRobot Roomba i7+ robot vacuum is only $769.99 on Amazon. It’s normally $1,099, so you’ll save 30%. (That’s its biggest discount ever on the site, by the way.)
Just as trees drop their leaves when the weather chills and the days get shorter, many dogs and cats experience a seasonal shed in fall to ditch their short summer coats for thick, cozy fluff. And unless you want tumbleweeds of pet hair rolling across your floors all winter, you’ll need to have a stellar vacuum on hand to clean up after Felix and Fido in the coming months.
Tons of vacuums have been designed specifically to tackle that pesky pet hair, although few are as snazzy as last year’s Roomba i7+. Featuring Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility, iRobot has packed this robot vacuum chock full of smart features that help it optimize cleaning for your personal space. It’s on sale now at a bunch of different retailers, but for the best price, you’ll want to order yours from Amazon: There, it’s currently enjoying its biggest-ever discount of $329.01.
Our pals over at PCMag named the Editor’s Choice Award-winning Roomba i7+ one of their favorite tech products of 2018 for a couple different reasons: For one thing, they really liked the fact it’s got a dustbin that self-empties into a separate bag within the device’s Clean Base when docked; that bag holds up to 60 bins of dust, dirt, and hair, and the Clean Base will send you a smartphone notification via the iRobot app when it’s finally full. (In the meantime, you might just forget it’s even there.)
PCMag also praised the Rooma i7+ for its multistory mapping and camera-based navigation technologies, which allow it to map and remember your home’s unique floor plan.
Personally, we’re especially impressed by the Roomba i7+’s cleaning power: Its Power-Lifting Suction technology has ten times the air power of older Roomba models, enabling it to slurp up all of the minuscule dust particles and pet fuzz hiding between the piles of your carpet and grooves in your hardwood floors.
Head over to Amazon to get the Roomba i7+ for just $769.99 — 30% off its suggested retail price of $1,099.
