If you’re still pushing a vacuum cleaner around the house, it might be time to finally delegate your floors to a robot. A robotic vacuum is something to get charged up about, especially one that’s so smart it can map your entire house, empty its own dust bin, and self-clean its brushroll. 

The Shark IQ Wi-Fi robotic vacuum does all that and then some. We’d call it less of a household appliance and more of a housekeeper, actually. Right now, you can score its services for a major discount—$120 off on QVC.

On sale for $480, the Shark IQ cleans the way you want it to clean, whenever you want it to clean. Program it to tackle your entire home in one fell swoop every Saturday morning, or order it to clean just the living room tonight and the bedrooms tomorrow. You set its schedule using either the Shark IQ app, Amazon Alexa, or Google Home, then sit back and let the smart disc do its thing.

The device really knows its way around. It uses an internal GPS, or an intelligent home mapping system, to travel through your entire domain. It meticulously cleans each room, one six-inch-wide row at a time, showing itself through doorways, under furniture, and over any type of flooring. Debris, pet hair, crumbs—nothing can survive the Shark’s serious suction.

The Shark IQ—which QVC is offering free shipping on, too—is even sophisticated enough to dig crud out of the corners of your kitchen floor thanks to dual edge and corner brushes, and its self-cleaning brush roll is designed to repel tangled up hair. The Shark IQ promises to unearth so much dirt and dust from deep inside your carpet’s fibers—it traps allergens inside a high-efficiency filter, too—that you might actually be grossed out when you discover what’s inside its .17-quart dust bin, which holds up to 30 days’ worth of gunk.

The thing is, you won’t even know what the gadget’s sucked up because the Shark IQ robotic vacuum is so smart, it empties its own dust bin! Once it makes its way back to its charging station—if its dust bin is full—it will empty the bin’s contents into the bagless base. Once that’s full, you can dispose of it. Think about how long you won’t have to think about emptying out your vacuum—for that feature alone, this unit scores massive points.

The fact that you can control it using voice commands or via a smartphone app from anywhere, near or far, is just icing on the cake. If you have to pause cleaning midway and resume, say, tomorrow, the Shark IQ even remembers where it left off. Now that’s smart!

No need to tip this housekeeper either! Just shell out $480 today—a $120 savings over the usual list price of $600—or choose QVC’s Easy Pay option, which lets you split the cost into four painless payments of $120 each. The site offers the option to sign up for its QCard, too, which lets you pay for the Shark IQ in interest-free installments providing you pay in full by nine, 12, or 18 months from the date of purchase.
