SAVE $80.88: As of April 5, the ionvac SmartClean 2000 robot vacuum is on sale at Walmart for just $99 — that’s 45% off its usual retail price of $179.88.
Buying a robot vacuum is truly a “get what you pay for” experience where the less you’re willing to spend, the fewer bells and whistles you’ll find among the options in your price range. Dip under the $200 mark, and your robot vacuum “is mostly going to act as a supplemental cleaning device” to a beefier upright model, writes Mashable shopping reporter Miller Kern.
That’s where the ionvac SmartClean 2000 is different: It’s spec lineup is stacked with features like mobile app integration, smart assistant support, automatic charging, and a three-stage cleaning system with a whopping 2000pa of suction power — more than double that of iRobot’s entry-level Roomba 675 — yet it retails for just $179.88.
You can actually get it for even cheaper, if you’re quick: Walmart had it on sale at its Black Friday price of $99 as of April 6 — that’s a whole 45% off (and an absolute steal).

A lack of smart home mapping technology that learns and adapts to your floorplan keeps the SmartClean 2000 out of “too good to be true territory.” But gripping “Floor Wheel Drive” traction wheels help it navigate easily from hardwood floors to carpet and rugs, and some anti-collision/cliff sensors prevent it from bumping into walls and tumbling down stairs mid-clean. Plus, it’s slim enough to fit under most furniture without getting stuck — you can basically just turn it on and forget about it while it works its cleaning magic.
Still not sold on the SmartClean 2000? That’s fair — such a low price should make any smart buyer skeptical about its quality. But take a look at its overwhelmingly positive customer reviews on Walmart.com, where it’s currently sitting at 4.4/5 stars. Here’s what user Trevor had to say:
“I bought my robot while it was on sale for $99 and was delightfully surprised. Usually, you get what you pay for but this vacuum did everything I want it to do. My floors are unevenly tiled or entryways had a high divider so I was unsure if it was going to work but it does. It picks up my long hair, cat litter, and my cat’s fur that she leaves behind and cleans under the couch or bed. The only downfall is it catches cords (my problem since I have poor wire management) and needs some help getting freed. It also has the option to set up a schedule to clean but my personal routine is all over the place. The vacuum is also Alexa compatible and makes for a perfect addition to my smart home. Besides that I’m satisfied with my purchase and would totally recommend.”
