Cheap robot vacuum sales are getting easier to find. With more models hitting the shelves at a budget-friendly price point (and those devices seeing regular discounts on top), there's some excellent value up for grabs these days. This technology was previously reserved for those with $600+ to splash, but you'll easily find cheap robot vacuums for as little as $100 / £100 in today's market. 

Robot vacuum cleaners are brilliant things, most of the time. They take one of our most hated chores and handle it for us. And, provided you keep an eye on exactly what they can suck up, you'll soon be able to come home to a freshly hoovered house every day. However, some robots are smarter than others: our cheap Vileda spends most of its time underneath the sofa, stuck and feeling sorry for itself. Meanwhile, our Eufy RoboVac takes on more than it should be subjected to with ease. We're rounding up the best robot vacuum deals that take after the latter right here.

The robot vacuum prices below are much nicer than some of the ridiculous models that come in closer to a grand (yes, Dyson, we're talking about you). Stock varies greatly across various countries, so we've listed a selection of retailers at the end with regular robot vacuum sales.

iRobot Roomba Combo i5+

A robot vacuum and mop combo

Size: 34x34.2x9.1cm | Weight: 3.17 Kg | Carpets: Yes | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: Yes

Vacuums and mops
Smart mapping
Self-emptying bin
Expensive

The popular iRobot Roomba Combo i5+ is the ultimate robot vacuum, thanks to its mopping abilities. The robot vacuum not only features powerful suction for hardwood floors and carpets, but the i5+ includes a mop pad designed for wet floor mopping to clean up dirt and dust. If you attach the Roomba Combo Bin, the i5+ vacuum and mop your hard floors at the same time. The Roomba also features smart mapping so the vacuum will learn what rooms to clean and recharge on its own, and the self-emptying bin holds up to 60 days of debris.

Because you're getting a vacuum and mop in one appliance, the iRobot i5+ is priced higher than most robot vacuums, retailing for $549.99 / £699.99. Luckily, there are frequent discounts on this model, so you should never expect to pay full price.

iRobot Roomba i7

Powerful suction in a newer model

Size: 33.8x33.8x9.2cm | Weight: 3.37 Kg | Carpets: Yes | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: Yes

Self-cleaning and charging
Powerful suction
Sophisticated mapping
Higher price tag

The Roomba i7 is a more recent instalment in iRobot's line of industry-leading robot vacuums. It will set you back about $100 more than the 960 below, but you're getting a serious step up in power and features for your cash. Improved suction and a self-cleaning station are the two main draws (that's right, this robot's smart enough to clean its own dust tray), but a slightly lighter profile, intelligent mapping features that learn individual rooms, and Google Assistant and Alexa compatibility also make this robot vacuum excellent quality for its price. We're seeing robot vacuum deals hitting this model a little more frequently now, as well, so you might find a better price here than you're expecting.

Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30C

Cheap robot vacuum cleaner with Alexa support

Size: 32.5x32.5x7.2cm | Weight: 2.7Kg | Carpets: Yes | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: No

Quiet but powerful
Excellent Alexa integrations
Doesn't get stuck

Eufy is the smart home division of Anker, and it’s released a dizzying array of smart products that often do a much better job for much less money than the bigger household names. The RoboVac range is no exception. The 30C is powerful, with a boost function for particularly stubborn debris. Its comparatively big wheels overcome most simple obstacles such as carpet edges, it runs up to 100 minutes between charges and it doesn’t sound like a washing machine full of spanners - great features on robot vacuum sales of this price. You can use the provided boundary strips to make no-go areas and it all hooks into the excellent Eufy app which plugs directly into Alexa with ease. You'll also find particularly good robot vacuum deals on this model when you head direct to Amazon.

iRobot Roomba 960

The biggest brand in robot vacuums

Size: 35x35x9.1cm | Weight: 6.42Kg | Carpets: Yes | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: No

Reliable Roomba quality
Self charges
Won't get stuck
Newer model available below

It might not be the cheapest robot vacuum, but the Roomba has dominated the market for a long time. While Roombas were the first robot vacuums to really excite people, this isn’t a retro choice. The range has got smarter with every model and the 960 sits at a sweet spot of price right now, even if it's not the newest release. It delivers almost everything its 980 sibling does for less money, its navigation is superb and you’ll rarely find it confused in a corner or stuck under a sofa. It self-charges and can detect significant dirt deposits - all it really lacks is the 980’s more powerful motor and carpet cleaning, or the i7's more expensive mapping and self-cleaning features. There are also some excellent robot vacuum sales on the Roomba 960 model, whereas the later versions are less likely to drop in price right now.

Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S

A cheaper Eufy robot vacuum

Size: 32.5x32.5x7.2cm | Weight: 2.65Kg | Carpets: Yes | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: No

Cheaper than 30C model
Drop sensing technology
Self-charging
No smart assistant or app compatibility

The 11S isn't actually any slimmer than the more powerful RoboVac 30C - both of them sit at 2.85-inches thin. That said, the 11S does have its place in the robot vacuum arena. It's cheaper than the 30C and can run for just as long with the same BoostIQ technology to keep the carpets clean too. The only difference you'll notice in your cleaning between the two models is that the 11S cuts the suction power to 1300Pa - only 200 difference maximum and at a much lower price tag. You do lose support for smart assistants as well as the Eufy app, however - the 11S ships with a remote you can use to schedule your cleaning and switch your cleaning modes. We see regular robot vacuum deals cutting the price on this model as well, so you'll find it available on sale regularly.

iLife V3s Pro

Cheap robot vacuum cleaner for hard floors

Size: 30x30x7.6cm | Weight: 2Kg | Carpets: Low pile only | Hard floors: Yes | Self-charging: Yes | Mapping: No

Cheap robot vacuum
Quiet 
Scheduling available
Little suction on carpet
No assistant or app support

The iLife V3s Pro is one of the older iLife robot vacuum models. While that means it's lagging in certain features like carpet boosted suction or smart assistant or app support, you are getting a handy hardwood hoover for far less than you'd usually have to part with for. With a 120 minute runtime and automatic recharging, you might want to consider this model if you're looking for something cheap to whip around your small hardwood home on preset schedules. 

Are the cheapest robot vacuum deals worth it? 

The very cheapest robot vacuum cleaners are often more hassle than they're worth. You can get these for as low as $50/£50 but often their low suction power and poor connectivity make them little more than incredibly slow remote control disks. You might also struggle to pick up spare parts and refills for some of the less well-known brands. The robot vacuum deals listed here, however, bring you the most trusted brands with products that are tried and tested at low prices. While the iRobot Roomba is your best bet for high performance cleaning, there are also plenty of excellent robot vacuum deals on offer at the $150-$200 / £150-£200 price tag below.

What to look for in cheap robot vacuum deals

It can be tempting to pick up a super cheap robot vacuum deal, but quite often when these offers are too good to be true they are just that. We regularly see knock off brands putting their devices out for under $100 but it's well worth paying the extra cash to make sure you're getting your full money's worth. If you're shopping for robot vacuum sales between $100 and $180 you'll want a device with auto-charging, scheduling, fall detection and powerful enough suction to function on anything from hard wood to medium pile carpets. Moving beyond the $200 range, you'll want to take a look at mapping capabilities and other integrations like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
