Pet hair? Dirt? Crumbs? The mighty Roomba scoffs at such trivial obstacles!

$278 at Amazon

Why is it a good Amazon deal?

This is one of the best prices we've seen this Roomba on sale for. If you've contemplated buying one, now would be a smart time. Other robo vacs from the iRobot line can go for upward of $200 or $300, and that's for the most standard models, so the fact that this one is down to just $170 makes it an Amazon deal well worth jumping on.

Why do I need this?

What makes the iRobot Roomba 692 so special? It learns your cleaning habits and can create a personalized cleaning schedule just for you and your space. It's even compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant — just instruct your smart-home assistant to start your weekly (or daily) clean, and the Roomba will get right to work.

It's brains aren't the only thing to love, though. It also packs plenty of brawn. It can easily suck up dust, debris, pet hair and whatever else it finds on your floors. It does that by loosening embedded dirt from your wood or carpeted floors and sucking them up. It even has an edge-sweeping brush that makes short work of corners and other nooks and crannies.

This app-compatible robot is packed with smart sensors that help it detect what's in its path, so it can circle around furniture, decor and even your pet's water bowl. Plus, it knows to avoid stairs!

As for battery life? It can clean for up to 90 minutes before heading back to its dock to recharge. Got a loved one who hates vacuuming? Maybe they've got a birthday coming up? They're going to love this ridiculously smart sucker.

What reviewers say

Over 52,000 Amazon customers love the iRobot Roomba 692 Robot Vacuum — enough to give it a perfect rating.

"I absolutely love it!" exclaimed one impressed user. "I feel like the floor is truly clean and am delighted that it is short enough to clean under most of my furniture. Being 74, it was becoming more difficult for me to vacuum as effectively as before. I truly recommend this product to anyone who wants a quality job with much less work."

"I have three ragdoll cats, and as much as I brush them, their hair is everywhere!" shared another satisfied shopper. "But, not now ... I just come upstairs in the evening, turn my new best friend on and away she goes! All I do is sit back, watch TV and empty the hair out! That's it. My carpet has never looked so good."

"I am just so amazed by this product," raved a final fan. "It is so intuitive, and although our cats love it and follow [it] around the house, it doesn’t run into them even though they stand right in front of it. ... It does a great job of learning the area you’re vacuuming. There is a lot in the filter and disposal when I’m done, but I still think with pets you may need a deeper vacuum on rugs every once in a while. It’s so great for the tile and hardwood. Only thing is, I wish you could send it home from the app, but that’s the only complaint I have!"

Vroom, vroom — this deal won't last forever!

And for wet messes, another floor-cleaning product you might want to invest in? These ingenious mop slippers:

No more lugging out a big mop and bucket — clean while you walk! 

"These mop slippers are my new favorite find," wrote one Yahoo staffer. "I slip them on each morning when I get out of bed, and my feet feel warm and cared for. Throughout the day they get me off my butt and onto my feet. Instead of noting (with dread) a smattering of crumbs or a film of dust, I attack it on my way to check the mail or while making lunch."
