If you’ve always wanted a Roomba, this is your chance to get the popular robot vacuum for a steal. Amazon’s robot vacuum deals this week has the top-rated iRobot Roomba 692 vacuum for a generous $40 off. Regularly $299.99, it’s now priced at just $259.99. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Roomba this year, and one of the best robot vacuum deals online since last Prime Day.
Looking for an even cheaper deal? Pick up an “open box” version of this Roomba on Amazon here and get it for just $98. This isn’t a refurbished Roomba, but rather one in a box that has been open or lightly damaged. The box may be a little dinged but the robot vacuum inside is as good as new.

iRobot Roomba 692
This 692 model is a great starter choice with powerful vacuuming capabilities, advanced navigation and comprehensive smart connectivity. Powerful suction means it’ll pick up whatever you (or your pets) leave on the floors, easily drawing out dust, dirt, crumbs and more. In fact, iRobot says the 692 has an upgraded three-stage cleaning system which more than holds its own against whatever you throw at it.
What we like: the 692 robot vacuum’s multi-surface brushes work on carpet, hardwood and tiles, and they easily power through everything from dirt to liquids to pet hair. Built-in sensors also alert your robot about dirtier areas of your home, like high-traffic spots, and cleans them more thoroughly.
Unlike some robot vacuums, which bump and hit the corners of your cabinets or floorboards, the Roomba 692 uses a smart navigation system to adapt to the layout of your home and navigate any obstacles. It also automatically detects a change in terrain, say, when it goes from your carpeted bedroom to your tiled bathroom floor.

Use the handy iRobot Home app to set the vacuum on a cleaning schedule, and to monitor progress. You can also control the vacuum with your voice, by pairing it to home assistants like Alexa and Google Home.
Battery life is solid — in our experience, you get about an hour and a half of cleaning time on a single charge; the robovac automatically returns to its base to recharge if it needs a little juice before finishing the job.
Roombas almost never go on sale, so if you’ve been looking for a good Roomba deal, this is one you won’t want to pass up. The current $40 discount on the brand new version is already a great price, but getting it for $98 as part of Amazon’s “open box” deal? That’s practically a steal.
Use the “open box” hack to get a top-of-the-line robot vacuum that’s usually almost triple the price. See full details on this Roomba deal here.
Like all Amazon Prime Day Roomba deals, prices were accurate at time of writing but the site could stop its sale at any time. See full details here.
