Your new cleaning crush: This popular Roomba vac is down to $190 — now's your chance to get it on sale

Let's be honest — a Roomba robot vacuum this affordable is basically unheard of. Snag this limited Amazon deal.

The best partner I have ever had is my Roomba. That's right — I said it! Sure, there are advantages to human boyfriends. They can reach high shelves, laugh at your jokes and refill your wine glass. But it's my neat, efficient robo-roommate that's currently rocking my world. If you're tired of zeroes and need a hero, right now, there are a few Roombas on sale at Amazon, but the iRobot Model 671 is a tried-and-true shopper favorite that's currently under $200. Who said money can't buy you love?

You don't even have to lift a finger: Schedule this robovac to tidy up on the daily using the manufacturer's app or your voice assistant of choice.

Why is this a good Amazon deal?

Every once in a while, there are a few rare deals that pop up on Amazon that catch us by surprise and this one is the latest culprit, especially considering that Roombas rarely go on sale for under $200. Specifically, the 600 models are among the most popular in the brand's lineup and this one is $40 off for a limited time.

Why do I need this?

So, here's why this particular Roomba is my holy grail cleaning appliance. It sucks up dust. It sucks up crumbs. It sucks up strewn kitty litter and tiny bits of Cheerios left over from breakfasts eaten long ago. And it does all this without any involvement from me — I don’t have to ask, I don’t have to stand up, I don’t have to lift a finger. I don’t even have to be home! Every day at the appointed time, my darling Roomba just does its job without my input, and I kind of love that.

This is all thanks to the schedule feature on the iRobot Home app. It's a useful "set it and forget it" perk that I absolutely love. Once I set the designated days and times on the app, it just does its thing according to that schedule and I can just relax on the couch in all of my clean home bliss.

And if you want to kick off a clean that's not scheduled, since the Roomba 671 is Wi-Fi connected, you can start the cleaning process with just a touch of a button on your smartphone. Also included with Wi-Fi is Alexa compatibility. Ask Alexa to start, stop or dock your Roomba, and it’ll do just that!

Picture coming home to clean floors every single day. Can you even imagine? In case you’re unfamiliar with the technology, the Roomba has sensors that map its surroundings (including cliff sensors that keep it from toppling down a set of stairs). This allows it to zip around an entire floor, removing allergens, pet hair and the detritus of daily life.

And when the Roomba is running low on battery from all that work, it automatically docks itself to recharge. All the more proof that we are, in fact, living in the future.

What reviewers say:

Several shoppers admitted that they were a little hesitant to shell out so much on a vacuum. But once they did, they, too, were smitten. "Y'all, this thing is a game changer," said one of them. "I was a little apprehensive to spend so much on a 'frivolous' item, but I took the plunge and got this girl. She is amazing!"

Another shopper takes full advantage of the scheduling feature, sharing, "We set it for when we go to bed so we get up [to] clean floors."

"I live with two children and a German shepherd who sheds endlessly," related this fan. "We have no carpet in any of the rooms, and I was sweeping constantly. I've been able to reduce my sweeping, which is a big help."

What's that you say — $190 is still a little too steep for you? Meet the iRobot Roomba 676. It was originally more expensive than the Roomba 671 but, thanks to this steep Amazon discount, it's on sale for just $159.

This slightly more affordable model is another shopper favorite that also works on a slew of household surfaces. Get it now while it's over 40% off.
