  • iRobot’s most popular self-emptying Roomba has a huge retail price of $1,000, but there are comparable options with deep discounts ahead of Christmas.
  • Our favorite is the Shark IQ Robot Vacuum with Self-Empty Base, which is just as powerful as many Roomba models.
  • Shark self-emptying model is also pretty pricey at $550, but Amazon’s current sale slashes it to $399.99.

All household chores are annoying, obviously, so any solution that might eliminate one is going to be welcomed with open arms. That’s exactly why robot vacuums were such game-changers — they completely eliminated the need for regular vacuuming because they putter around on their own and suck up all the loose dirt, dust, and pet hair around your home. Now, the next major revolution in robot vacuum cleaner technology has arrived… and after trying it once, you won’t be able to live without it!

The fact that they do most the work for you is what makes robot vacuums so great, of course. After your robot vacuum finishes its job, however, you need to empty out the dust bin yourself. If you forget for a day or two and your vacuum runs again, it could get clogged and just start blowing dirt and dust all over your home. That is… until you pick up a Shark IQ Robot Vacuum with Self-Empty Base while it’s on sale with a nice big $150 discount.

Aside from being one of the most powerful robot vacuums out there and packing plenty of great features like Alexa support, this Shark robot vacuum actually empties itself into a special docking station every time it’s done cleaning! It’s on sale right now for just $399.99 instead of $550, but there’s a good chance this deal will disappear soon.
