It’s officially 2020, and while we may not have reached a Jetsons-level lifestyle, we do have robots to clean our floors. If you haven’t yet hopped aboard the Roomba train, today is the day to start transforming your tidying-up routine with the little cordless housekeeper that’s become an essential appliance in millions of households.

The refurbished iRobot Roomba 860 Robotic Vacuum is on sale for just $200 compared to the everyday $280 price tag. But this Daily Deal ends at midnight, so you’d better snap one up before Amazon shoppers clean house.

The iRobot Roomba 860 has some pretty neat features that make it a standout in the robotic vacuum realm. First of all, it cleans every type of floor surface, so it can tackle carpets, hardwood, tiles—pretty much any flooring material in your entire house. Secondly, it uses patented Aero Force 3-Stage Cleaning System technology, which means tangle-free multi-surface brushes and the most powerful suction you can imagine—five times the air power so no amount of dirt, dust, debris, or pet hair is any match for this machine. 

You can even schedule the iRobot Roomba 860 up to seven times per week, then let the slim, disc-like device do its thing. Its smart iAdapt Responsive Navigation system lets it weave around corners, get under furniture, bypass household clutter, and navigate your home’s unique layout expertly. When it’s done sucking up every last crumb and particle, the iRobot Roomba 860 even makes its way back to its dock to recharge itself.

The iRobot Roomba 860s robotic vacuums are Certified Refurbished—and yes, that means they’ve been previously owned. But like other major brands that sell refurbished merchandise at a discount, Amazon offers the Amazon Renewed Guarantee, which ensures that each refurbished product has been meticulously inspected—including a full diagnostic test, replacement of any defective parts, and a thorough cleaning—before it’s resold. 

If you’re still not happy with the product, contact Amazon for free troubleshooting or apply for a full refund within 90 days of receiving the vacuum. 

One reformed Roomba skeptic and dog owner who was “constantly pulling out the Dyson Animal” to get rid of dog hair, wrote, “Since getting the Roomba, everything has changed! I joked with my sister, that my "life has changed"! It is hyperbole, but it's actually true. I turn on the Roomba and it just goes and cleans... period.... I pick up the dog's food/water bowls and shut the doors where I don't want it to go into, and it just vacuums for hours!”

“This little guy is so g@#damn amazing,” wrote another Roomba fan. “I bought one refurbished from Amazon and it has been one of the best purchases I've ever made…Thanks to my Roomba, now I only have to worry about dusting the desks and shelves every other week. The air is cleaner, there’s no smells and this thing picks up so much hair and dust, I could assemble a small house from all of it.”

Pick up an iRobot Roomba 860 robotic vacuum today at an unbeatable discount, and you might just grow as attached as this customer, who named their device Darrell. “Given the fact that Darrell was fresh out of college with a 4 year degree and little to no experience (thank god he had a recommendation letter from A.U. [Amazon University]), Darrell appears to be doing his job with no complaints or backlash,” they wrote. “A great employee, I might add. He sucks at his job and I couldn’t be happier with hiring him.”
