Vacuuming Got You Down? Let A Small Robot Pet Thing Take Care Of It

People are fascinated with the idea of robotic pets that clean up your messes. Which, honestly, makes sense. As someone who never had pets growing up, a Roomba seems like the perfect way to get Mom to get over her whole “allergies” excuse.

Last month, the Daily Dealer wrote about a sale on the Anker RoboVac, a competitor to the Roomba, which is made by iRobot. The price was definitely right on the RoboVac. At $200, it was $300 off its usual $500 price. A deal like that was too good to pass up, even if it was not the official name-brand Roomba.

The RoboVac article was one of the most popular the Daily Dealer has ever published, and people were understandably distressed when the RoboVac was no longer on sale.

Today offers some relief. The iRobot Roomba 870, one of the most popular models, is currently $150 off. This Roomba normally costs $600, so $450 is very reasonable. It looks especially good when you consider this extensive review from “All Home Robotics.” After 900 words singing the praises of the 870, it takes on the $600 price tag, concluding, “the amount of time it saves and the level of cleanliness that it offers make it more than worth the investment.”

If you want a small robot pet more interested in cleaning messes than making them, consider this deal. I’ve never met someone who owns a Roomba and doesn’t love it, and surely they’d love it even more if they had saved $150 on the thing in the first place.
