Black Friday is nearly here. It’ll officially be taking place on November 24, that’s just under a month away. But that is not stopping retailers from starting their Black Friday deals right now. So why would you want to wait a month to get a robot vacuum for the same price as what it is available for today? That’s why we’re rounding up the very best Black Friday Robot Vacuum deals that you can get your hands on today.
Robot Vacuums are great gifts, but they are also great to gift to yourself. Why? Well, your house gets dirty. Even moreso during the holidays. And who has time to get out the big Hoover vacuum to clean up? That’s where a robot vacuum can come into play. Sure robot vacuums are more expensive compared to a regular vacuum, but he way to think about it is, how much time is it saving you? I very rarely vacuum my floors myself, about 98% of the vacuuming is done by robots, which makes a robot vacuum well worth the price. And now that you can get them for even less, ahead of Black Friday, it makes it even better.
Best Black Friday Robot Vacuum Deals 2023
iRobot Roomba Combo j7+
The iRobot Roomba Combo j7+ is still one of our favorite robot vacuums. It’s pretty impressive at its regular price, and now you can save a whooping $300 on it, ahead of Black Friday. The one thing that the Roomba Combo j7+ does really well is that it is able to do both mopping and vacuuming at the same time. This is actually the first Roomba to do that, and it accomplishes it by completely lifting the mopping pad up and onto the top of the vacuum. So that it won’t get your carpet wet.
It’s not a perfect robot vacuum by any means, for instance the dock does not clean the mopping pad. But it does empty the dustbin, which makes it a lot easier to let the vacuum clean your home everyday. I had it running basically every day, and mopping the kitchen. With no issues, thanks to the camera on the front. This camera does a really good job at identifying obstacles, and also pet waste. It comes with iRobot’s POOP guarantee. So if it does run over pet waste, it’ll be replaced free of charge.
Roborock S8 Pro Ultra
The Roborock S8 Pro Ultra is, in our opinion, the best robot vacuum you can buy right now. Which is a good thing, considering its price. The S8 Pro Ultra is not cheap, but it’s good to see it discounted for Black Friday. This robot vacuum has saved me a ton of time in cleaning myself, making the price tag a bit more worth it for me.
With the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra, you’re getting some incredible suction power, rated at 6,000Pa. For reference most other robot vacuums are closer to 3,000Pa. This added suction makes it perfect for those with pets, as it can get every dog or cat hair off of the carpet with ease. And then empty it into the dock, since this dock does allow for dustbin emptying, as well as cleaning the mopping pad and even refilling the water tank. Making it almost automated cleaning.
iRobot Roomba s9+
The Roomba s9+ is a bit older, coming out back in 2019, and surprisingly iRobot has not replaced it yet. However, it still remains one of the best cleaning robot vacuums you can get with the Roomba name. Back in 2019, when we initially reviewed this robot vacuum, we called it “The Best Clean Money Can Buy”. And that’s still true today, four years later. A big part of that is due to the D-shaped design here, which lets it get into the corners a lot better, to get every bit of dirt off of your floors.
One of the big upgrades that the Roomba s9+ ushered in, was the rubber brushes. In our review, we found that it was less likely to get hair clogged or tangled. And instead pushes the hair to the ends. Making it easier to remove. This is actually a really big deal on robot vacuums, and these days I won’t even entertain a robot vacuum that doesn’t have rubber brushes. Because they do make such a huge difference.
Roborock Q7 Max+
The Roborock Q7 Max+ brings a lot of the higher-end features from the company’s S8 series, down into a cheaper package. I’ve been using this robot vacuum over the last few weeks, and haven’t quite gotten a review written yet for it, but so far I’m pretty impressed. Given it’s price. The Q7 Max+ has pretty powerful suction, rated at 4200Pa right now. That’s strong enough to pick up a couple AA batteries. So it’s not leaving any dirt and dust behind.
The dock here also empties the dustbin, unfortunately it’s not large enough to also refill the water tank for the mopping pad, nor wash the mopping pad. But that’s where this lower price comes into play. If you’re like me, and use this in a home or on a floor that is mostly carpet, then those missing features won’t both you.
Yeedi Cube Robot Vacuum
Yeedi is a sub-brand of ECOVACS, and their new Cube robot vacuum is really impressive. In our review of the Cube, we mentioned that it was better than other robot vacuums at picking up pet hair. Making this a really great robot vacuum to pick up for any pet owner on your list this year. Or even for yourself.
The Cube also makes it super easy to automate your home cleaning, and never worry about cleaning your home. That’s because it can empty the dustbin, as well as clean the mopping pad and refill the water tank. Now the one issue we found with this particular robot vacuum is that you do need to go and empty the dirty water about every 20 minutes, which is a bit annoying. Luckily, the dirty water tank is on the left side and makes it super simple to pick it up and go empty it.
When is Black Friday 2023?
Black Friday is always the Friday after Thanksgiving, which this year, lands on November 24, 2023. In previous years, before the pandemic, stores would open up on Thursday evening to start Black Friday shopping. That’s becoming less of a thing, with more and more stores opting to stay closed on Thanksgiving, letting their employees spend the holiday with their families.
It’s not quite as big of an in-store event as it used to be, prior to the pandemic. Especially with online shopping being so easy these days. However, Black Friday sales are starting earlier and earlier than ever. They used to truly start the Tuesday or Wednesday before Black Friday. Now we see some retailers starting their Black Friday sales back in October. A full month ahead of the event.
Black Friday is the true start to the holiday shopping season, with Cyber Monday happening the following Monday and then Small Business Tuesday the next day. The following Monday we have “Green Monday” as well, which is another smaller shopping holiday.
What is the Best Robot Vacuum?
We have spent hundreds of hours testing and reviewing many of the best robot vacuums on the market today, and our pick for the best robot vacuum right now is the Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. This is a complete robot vacuum experience, complete with the new RockDock Ultra which can empty the dustbin, refill the water tank and also clean the mopping pad. Meaning that there’s almost nothing for the user to do. This is a robot vacuum that cleaned my house for a solid six months before moving onto the next robot vacuum to review, and once I’m finished reviewing these new robot vacuums, I’m probably going right back to the S8 Pro Ultra. It’s just that good.
How do we choose the Best Black Friday Robot Vacuum Deals?
Here at AndroidHeadlines, we believe that the best Black Friday deals are only as good as the products that are on sale. Meaning, just because something has a big discount, doesn’t mean it’s a good deal. As you’ll see here, we did not mention any cheap robot vacuums, these are all on the more expensive side, and that’s because it is a much better product than some of those cheaper robot vacuums.
Some other criteria that we used is if the pricing was lower than what it typically is. We cover deals all year round, so we know what the discount prices usually are. And all of those on this roundup are prices that are lower than the normal discounts. Not quite all-time lows, but pretty close. That way you can buy one now, and not worry about the price changing much, come Black Friday.
