  • iRobot’s most popular self-emptying Roomba has a huge retail price of $1,000, but there are comparable options with deep discounts ahead of Christmas.

  • Shark self-emptying model is also pretty pricey at $700, but the regular model is on sale for $496.73.

All household chores are annoying, obviously, so any solution that might eliminate one is going to be welcomed with open arms. That’s exactly why robot vacuums were such game-changers — they completely eliminated the need for regular vacuuming because they putter around on their own and suck up all the loose dirt, dust, and pet hair around your home. Now, the next major revolution in robot vacuum cleaner technology has arrived… and after trying it once, you won’t be able to live without it!

The fact that they do most the work for you is what makes robot vacuums so great, of course. After your robot vacuum finishes its job, however, you need to empty out the dust bin yourself. If you forget for a day or two and your vacuum runs again, it could get clogged and just start blowing dirt and dust all over your home. That is… until you pick up a Shark IQ R101 while it’s on sale with a nice big $63.77discount.
