Best vacuum deals available now: Save on Shark, Dyson and iRobot – CNET

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

The clock is ticking on the holiday shopping season, which means the deals are moving fast. But you can still find some discounts on robot vacuums and cordless vacuums. The savings this year started earlier than usual, with up to $200 off the biggest brands, including Dyson, iRobot, Shark, Bissell, Neato and more.

Many are currently sold out, but some highlights that are still on offer include almost $200 off the Shark IQ Robot Vacuum and over $130 off a Roomba. You can also find deals on refurbished models at Walmart. If you’re looking to snag a stick vacuum or robot vacuum for less, you’ve come to the right place. 

In our list below, we’ve lined up the best vacuum deals that are still available. Note that prices were accurate at time of publication, but we’re seeing frequent fluctuations.

Shark’s Robot Vacuum is on sale for $195 off. Nearly half price for a vacuum that will clean your house for you isn’t a bad deal. You can limit its coverage to certain rooms, thanks to a home-mapping feature.

Walmart

iRobot is the leader in robot vacuums and even their lower-end models do a great job of cleaning your floors. This Roomba 670 model isn’t one we’ve tested ourselves, but our experience with iRobot vacuums is generally positive. This one has Wi-Fi connectivity so you can control it from your phone and it works with Google Assistant, so you can get some satisfaction by yelling “Hey Google, tell Roomba to start cleaning,” while you go about your day.

iRobot

The Roomba i3 Plus is one of iRobot’s most affordable robot vacuum models. Even so, it’s relatively new and comes with many of the bells and whistles that you find in pricier robots. For instance the i3 Plus links to Wi-Fi, talks to the cloud, has a mobile app and creates floor maps as it cleans. It also has a charging dock that empties the vacuum’s dustbin after cleaning.

Dyson

Get the Cyclone V10 Animal for $100 less than its regular price at Best Buy. It’s the same main vacuum unit as the V10 Animal “Pro” model but with not as many attachments and tools. You get four attachments, including a mini motorized tool for removing pet hair from upholstery and tight spaces.

Bissell

Designed to tackle dirt, grime and pet hair, the Bissell Iconpet cordless vacuum conveniently runs off a rechargeable battery. It also has LED lights to vacuum in dark corners. With a list price of $350, the Iconpet is tempting at $200.

Another advanced robot vacuum that can empty its own dustbin is the Deebot Ozmo T8. Made by Ecovacs, this machine uses a sophisticated navigation system to clean floors efficiently. It also comes with a mop attachment to scrub hard flooring free from grime.  

Best Buy

Save $100 off the Hoover ONEPWR FloorMate, a wet-dry mop that can tackle hardwood, tile, laminate and area rugs.

Walmart

This robot vacuum from Shark doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Even so, it’s smart enough to empty its own dustbin, map floors and link to your home’s Wi-Fi. And starting 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET) today, Nov. 25, Walmart will sell it for $70 off its list price.

The Neato D7 usually lists for $800 but is currently selling at Neato for $580. It includes LaserSmart navigation, virtual no-go zones set in the mobile app and 120 minutes of battery life. 

Dyson

This deal to save $150 on the “Pro” version of the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal has expired. However, you can still get the Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal (not the Pro) for $100 off at Best Buy

Tyler Lizenby/CNET

If you can’t afford Dyson’s latest and greatest V11 model, the V10 Absolute is a solid compromise. It’s cordless (with up to an hour of battery life, according to Dyson), offers an air filtration system to expel cleaner air as it cleans and converts to a handheld mode, too. 

Best Buy

Designed to clean both hard surfaces and area rugs, the CrossWave has two water tanks. One tank collects dirty water while the other contains the appliance’s cleaning solution.

iRobot

Save $200 on the iRobot Roomba 960 robot vacuum. Best Buy has shaved its price down to $300. That’s a good deal for an automatic floor cleaner that navigates systematically and works with a mobile app, plus Google Assistant and Alexa.

Amazon

This lightweight cordless vacuum from Shark usually retails for $230. Right now Amazon is selling it for a cool $80 less than usual.

Target

For Black Friday Target has an exclusive deal on the Dyson V8 Motorhead. The cordless stick vac is usually $380 but for a limited time is discounted by $150. 

Chris Monroe/CNET

The Neato D4 is usually priced at $430 but currently marked down to $330, and you can save yet another $50 when you apply promo code NEATOAFF50 at checkout. That’s a great price for Neato’s LaserSmart navigation tech and 75 minutes of battery life.
