The best pre-Black Friday deals on robot vacuums live as of Oct. 22:


Make room, pastel appliances and 4K TVs: Robot vacuums are a hot Black Friday item, too.

Features like specific room targeting and automatic emptying aren’t reserved for the Roomba budget anymore. In 2021, we saw a particularly high number of new launches from brands like Ecovacs and Roborock (as well as iRobot, of course).

Whether these new models go on sale themselves or prompt serious discounts for previous releases, we expect Black Friday 2021 to be great time to buy a robot vacuum.

You don’t even have to wait until Nov. 26. Many robot vacuums are on sale as of mid-October, with retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target already touting pre-holiday deals.

Pop back to this list each week to see what’s on sale ahead of Black Friday.

We’re over a month out from Black Friday, but that’s not stopping Amazon from slyly tacking a more-than-50% discount (a price cut plus an extra coupon) onto this smart hybrid. The Deebot Ozmo 920, which is still going for the full $699.99 at Ecovacs’ own website, uses laser-based mapping to target specific rooms and has sensors that dodge carpets while mopping.

This deal from Walmart puts a strong self-emptying, mopping hybrid at around the same price as a Roomba with self-empty compatibility when the special dock isn’t included. The Deebot Ozmo N8+ covers the fundamental smart upgrades like LiDAR mapping and virtual boundaries for more precise navigation, plus sensors that avoid carpets while mopping.

The $310 (almost 40%) discount on Samsung’s Jet Bot+ is a drastic change from the $100-off deal we’ve been seeing for weeks. If you have a bumbling robot vac that causes more problems than it’s worth, consider upgrading to something with more brain power. The Jet Bot+ uses LiDAR to map your home and cleans by identifying the type of surface and amount of dust it’s dealing with. The compact Clean Station holds up to a month’s worth of debris.
