You know what else accompanies the holidays as much as "family time," "Christmas trees," or "much needed time off from work"? Mess. And lots of it. Whether we're talking about the post-present opening apocalypse, glitter from tree ornaments, or spills from the big family dinner, Christmas time is a time for messes. Get someothing to clean up the mess so you don't have to. The iRobot Roomba i7+ robot vacuum is on sale at Amazon today, and it's going for just $429.99 renewed. That's a savings of $120 off its regular renewed price, and that's more than $300 off what it goes for brand new. This is part of Amazon's Epic Daily Deals, so the price won't survive the day.
While it is renewed, the Roomba is covered by Amazon's Renewed Gaurantee, which gives you 90 days to issue a refund or replacement. It works and looks like new, has been professionally inspected, and comes with fully compatible accessories.
This was the Roomba that first introduced the ability to empty its own dust bin. That's a huge innovation for robot vacuums, considering there wasn't much else to innovate. Imagine having a robot where you set it schedule, make sure it has mapped the kitchen, and then you just leave it be. It does its job, empties its bin, and never bothers you. The only time you have to do anything is when you replace the bag in the base because it's full. That's like a month or more of clean floors that require little effort from you.
You'll also get a really good clean. It uses iRobot's 3-stage cleaning system and it has a lot of suction compared to older models. The smart navigation allows the Roomba to learn the layout of the floor it's working so it can clean as efficiently as possible. If the battery runs low, it'll even drive itself back to base, recharge, and finish where it left off.
It's great with pets thanks to a brush system that won't get tangled, and it gets smarter all the time thanks to regular updates.
