What Roomba Black Friday deals to expect

Where will the best Roomba Black Friday deals be?

You'll find all the best Black Friday Roomba deals here, of course, as soon as they drop. However, some retailers are better than others for robot vacuum discounts, and it can be helpful to know which online stores are good for what. We've listed the retailers we most recommend shopping at for Roomba deals over Black Friday above. They're worth browsing in the run-up, to get a feel for current, pre-deal pricing on any vacuums you're interested in.

When will the best Black Friday Roomba deals start in 2021?

Right now! Black Friday itself was November 26, but the deals are continuing throughout the weekend from all the big retailers. Last year many stuck around long after Cyber Monday, even lasting into December in some cases, and we're expecting the same to happen again.

We also saw a lot more discounts online than in physical stores. That's because of the Covid-19 pandemic, which according to data from Adobe Analytics, caused a more than a 50% increase to online sales in 2020 compared to 2019. 

We're expecting more deals to land throughout Black Friday and the weekend, so bookmark this page to keep up to date with all the latest and greatest deals available on all Roomba robot vacuums..

Which robot vacuums will be discounted for Black Friday?

We expect that most brands of vacuum cleaners will be discounted during Black Friday including Roomba, Dyson, and Eufy models. The amount we see cut from the prices will depend on how expensive they were to begin with, and we imagine the most high-end cleaners will only receive a slight price drop, but if you've been waiting to splash out on a new robot vacuum, Black Friday could be your best chance to save get your upgrade without breaking the bank.

What should I look for when buying a Roomba on Black Friday?

When buying a Roomba, the two main considerations are run time and capacity. These will let you know how long the robot vacuum can last on one charge and how much dirt it can pick up before being emptied. Longer run times and larger capacities will be best suited to larger homes, while smaller flats and apartments will suit vacuums on the lower end.

Mop modes may also be of use if you have several non-carpeted rooms. These robot vacuums will wipe the floor as they pick up dirt, giving your home a more clean feeling.

Other smart features could be good too if you can afford them. Roombas that can self empty are incredibly handy if you keep forgetting to clean them out regularly, meanwhile some devices can create smart maps of your home to improve cleaning efficiency.
