The Roomba 980 is awesome, but $700-$900 is a whole lot of cash to spend on a robot vacuum — even if it is from Roomba, the best brand in the world. What you might not realize though, is that iRobot makes other Roomba models that also work with Alexa and cost much less money. The iRobot Roomba 690 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity and Alexa is among them, and it’s a bargain at $375. Of course if you grab one on Amazon right now, you won’t even have to pay that much.

Here are the bullet points from the product page:

  • Sleek, premium design complements your home décor; includes 1 Dual Mode Virtual Wall Barrier for more control over where your robot cleans
