If you’ve been reluctant to invest in a robot vac, we get it. You clean your house well, and don’t want to drop hundreds of dollars on something that might not do as good a job. That’s why we love iRobot—this brand makes robot vacs that do such incredible work, you barely need to lift a finger. They’re seriously worth it.
Robot vacuums are the perfect foray into the luxuries you thought you’d never have. While self-driving cars and space travel are still reserved for the Jetsons and the one percent, it’s time for the rest of us to indulge a little, too. And doesn’t indulgence feel so much better when it’s not actually that indulgent? This iRobot Roomba 694 Wi-Fi Vacuum is one of the best and it’s only $180 (was $275).

This top-rated robovac is extra slim at 3.54 inches, and is quieter than your normal vacuum. Since it’s so slim, it gets all those hard-to-reach spots under couches and dressers without you moving around all your furniture. It also has laser sensors to avoid getting stuck on carpets, bumping into walls, or falling down stairs.
"This thing is LEGIIIIIT!!" shared a shopper. "We named him Bob. I had my doubts. I am a true Roomba believer now after seeing my little Bob dominate the dirt and hair. Holy smokes the amount of junk Bob picked up! We vac and sweep all the time and it was as if I had never cleaned my house in years. Bob is amazing at picking up hair. We have a lot of hair from my wife and a dog that sheds. It’s been like that daily since we bought this thing."
You can even set a schedule for your robovac to clean when you’re not around, or just ask Alexa or Google to do it. The vacuum will return to its dock to charge as needed and get back to finish the job once it's powered up. Crazy-smart, it learns your house with a mapping system, so if you spill something in the kitchen and need to run out, just use your phone or Alexa device to tell it where to clean. It’s perfect for pets and gets better as time goes on, even suggesting an extra clean when your area's pollen count is high or during pet shedding season.
Got a dad in your life who hates cleaning? This guy will arrive by Father's Day!

The dates for Amazon’s highly-anticipated Prime Day have just been announced, so cue excitement, folks. Some of us shopping geezers remember a time when the only blowout sale event that attracted crowds and warranted news coverage was Black Friday. Times have a-changed with one massive sale that rivals its post-Thanksgiving counterpart in terms of scale, savings, and ubiquity. Amazon didn’t disappoint with the last year’s epic Prime Day sale, so we can only anticipate this year’s to be just as g
