SAVE 20-25%: As of May 31, the two most high-end Roombas — the j7+ and the s9+ — are discounted by $200.99 at Amazon. You’ll pay $599 and $799, respectively.

Robot vacuums are one of the core categories that usually see deals for Prime Day. But if you’ve had your sights set on a new Roomba, a May 31 deal could snag you an extra month or so of hands-off clean floors.

The two most high-end Roombas, the j7+ and s9+, are chilling at their lowest prices ever at Amazon ($599 and $799, respectively). The possibility that they’ll experience new record-low pricing for Prime Day is there, but we wouldn’t bet on it.

There’s one huge reason to choose the j7+ over any other Roomba: The luxury of not having to pre-clean. The j7+ uses Genius Technology and PrecisionVision Navigation to avoid small obstacles that you’d previously have to pick up before starting vacuuming, like phone chargers and pet waste. Few other self-emptying vacuums have this skill. The Samsung JetBot AI+ does, but it’s more than double the j7+’s sale price.

The j7+ gets smarter as it cleans, too, noting which rooms are the dirtiest and suggesting tweaks to its cleaning schedule.

The only Roomba with a flat edge also has wall-follow behavior, which means it hunts down debris hiding in the corners that round vacs can’t get to. Admittedly, it makes a lot of noise — but that’s to be expected from a deep-cleaning vac that loosens and lifts gunk in thick carpets. Its self-emptying station holds at least two months of debris.

The Roomba s9+ was priced at $1,299 when it first dropped. Now, it’s usually priced at $999.99 — probably because newer models have dulled the self-emptying, self-mapping novelty, its MSRP has dropped to $999.99. But technically, you’re getting a $1,299 Roomba for $799.
