The iRobot Roomba 618 Robot Vacuum proves the point that you don’t need to spend big bucks to buy a big name robotic vacuum. Built by one of the pioneers in the home robotics industry, the Roomba 618 could only be simpler to use if it could read you mind — cycle back next year and maybe a future Roomba will have that ability. Just press the “Clean” button in the center of the Roomba 618’s top, and it goes to work. An automatically adjusting cleaning head move up and down so the Roomba’s multi-surface brushes can clean different floor surfaces. Like many robot vacs, when the job is done, or the battery runs low, the Roomba 618 returns to its docking home base to automatically recharge.
Normally priced at $270, the Roomba 618 is just $229 from Walmart with free shipping to arrive by Saturday, December 22.

You can manage the Botvac D3 with your phone, smartwatch, or with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

The Neato Botvac D7 Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum is more expensive than most robo vacs today because it is packed with premium features. The D7 supports zone cleaning for defined zones that need more frequent attention and for special missions. For example, if the floor around your dining room table gets especially crumb-littered when friends drop by, you can dispatch the D7 to that defined zone. The Botvac D7 maps your whole house for efficient cleaning and can learn three different floor plans. You can also define areas where the D7 shouldn’t go – like where your dog’s water dish sits. Rated for up to 120 minutes operation on a single battery charge, the D7 should finish even large houses in one run. If it needs more power to finish up, however, this smart vac can go to its charger for a Quick Boost for just enough power to finish the job.
Discounted $103 from its regular $799 price, the Neato Botvac D7 Robot Vacuum is $696 at Walmart including free 2-day shipping for arrival by December 20.
