Save $100 on a Roomba that empties its own bin – CNET



If you’re shopping for a robot vacuum cleaner, you probably consider factors like how well it sucks up dirt, whether it supports virtual barriers and how thoroughly it maps your floors. But these days, more and more vacuums can empty their dustbin automatically as well. A Roomba that takes out its own trash? Sign me up. There are, in fact, a few Roomba models with CleanBase docking stations, and right now one of them is on sale for $100 off. The iRobot Roomba i7 Plus is $699

The iRobot Roomba i7 Plus ordinarily sells for about $800. This vacuum docks in iRobot’s CleanBase, which has room for about a month’s worth of vacuuming sessions, assuming you schedule the Roomba to clean the house daily. The i7 Plus maps your entire home and stores it in memory, up to about 4,000 square feet. You can name each room and use voice commands (via Alexa or Google) to direct the vacuum to clean specific parts of the house.

$700 is still pricey as these gadgets go, especially when you consider that you can get a model like the Neabot self-emptying robot for as little as $424. But if you want the Roomba badge on the front of your robot vacuum, this is a good deal, since it matches the best price ever for the i7 Plus. 

You can get the Roomba i7 Plus for the same $699 price at Wellbots today, with an extra bonus: Wellbots includes free Shipping and charges no sales tax (except for customers in New York state).
