Like so many other robot vacuum owners out there, I have become spoiled. It’s not enough anymore that I have an awesome little robot to do all the vacuuming around my house for me. In fact, sometimes I actually get annoyed at the little autonomous device that once brought me so much joy. Why? Because I have a dog that sheds constantly, which means I have to empty my robot vacuum’s dirt collection bin every single time after it runs. Oh, the humanity!
No, it’s not actually a huge deal — but it’s also not a problem I have to deal with anymore. That’s because I got myself a new robot vacuum model with a brilliant feature called self-emptying.
As the name of the feature suggests, it’s an awesome capability that lets your robot vacuum empty itself when it’s done cleaning. It uses a special dock that doubles as a charging base and it sucks all the dust, dirt, and pet hair right out of the robot vacuum. That means instead of having to empty it every time it runs, you only have to empty your robot vacuum about once a month!
Roomba robot vacuums with the self-emptying feature sell for $1,000 or even more if you want a top-of-the-line model. For Prime Day 2020, however, you can actually pick up the $800 Roomba i6+ Robot Vacuum for $599.99, which is an all-time low. If that’s still too pricey for you, don’t worry because there’s another option as well. The Shark IQ Self-Empty XL Robot Vacuum that typically sells for $600 is down to just $334.99 right now! That’s an all-time low price by a huge margin, so you definitely don’t want to miss out on this killer deal. Also of note for anyone looking for a cordless vacuum with Dyson quality for a fraction of the price, the Shark IZ163H Rocket Pet Pro Cordless Stick Vacuum is on sale for just $169.99 instead of $280 right now.
