Hair, there and everywhere: it’s the messy reality of being a pet owner. Considering how much maintenance a household with dogs and cats requires, is there any reason to still be lugging around a heavy upright or canister vacuum? Give your back a break already and invest in a robot vacuum!
Walmart happens to have a serious sale going on, and it includes all the most respected names in smart robot vacuums — Roomba, Eufy and Shark, to name a few. The best five of the bunch are designed specifically to banish pet hair. The savings are incredible, too — up to $190 off. That's a 63 percent discount.
Plus, if you want to score free shipping make sure you’re signed up for Walmart+. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, and a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
We cherry-picked these five fully vetted, top-rated robot vacuums you can score for a steal right now at Walmart, starting with the Eufy RoboVac 25C by Anker. It's an incredibly smart and shockingly efficient smart device, and it's our top pick for pet owners, paws down. Right now at Walmart, this Eufy is over $120 off — down from $250 to just $129.
This robo vac doesn't just do the cleaning for you; it does the thinking too. It uses Eufy’s patented BoostIQ technology to navigate your house, from hardwood floors to rugs and beyond, with smooth transitions. It never loses suction, but if it senses the need for extra power, it amps up to get the job done. Pet owners are thrilled, to say the least.
"I absolutely love this item," raved a five-star reviewer. "It picks up so much dust and hair (I have seven pets and I'm amazed...). It knows when it's about to bump into something and turns itself before it goes into a wall or door. I highly recommend this machine if you are too busy or tired to vacuum."
Another pet owner praises the Eufy RoboVac 25C: "It is a game changer for picking up my dog's hair from the floor and carpet," shared the shopper.
The Eufy is super slim, so it’s a ninja when it comes to getting into every crevice and corner — and it has an infrared sensor for identifying obstacles. You can even program it to clean while you’re out making a supermarket run.
And you won’t have to worry about the Eufy RoboVac 25C taking a tumble while you’re out — it has a drop-sensing feature to avoid falls. This model has all the bells and whistles you'd want, including an anti-scratch top to keep it looking like new.
Did we mention this over half off deal also includes a remote, an AC power adapter, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, a 12-month warranty and more? The charging base is included, of course, and your robovac knows how to use it.
"So far I am loving my Eufy RoboVac 25C! It seems to get most of the house and under tight spaces (dresser, nightstand, bed) with no difficulty," wrote a five-star reviewer. "I have it running on schedule while I’m at work and when I get home my floors are clean and the vac is resting nicely in its charging dock."
Now's your chance to save $121 on a lean, mean cleaning machine. Don’t let this deal pass you by!
