It's been over two decades since robot vacuums first hit the market, and they've come a long way. Modern models come equipped with cutting-edge features like laser navigation and object avoidance, and some can even mop your floors as well. Some of the higher-end models come with a hefty price tag, but there are plenty of deals available for Prime Day (both on Amazon and elsewhere) to help you get your hands on one without breaking the bank -- and that's on both expensive and budget-friendly models.
To get a sense of the best models on the market at the moment, you can check out our list of the best robot vacuums. Below, you'll find the best Prime Day deals available on some of our favorite models, as well as plenty of comparable models you can grab at a steep discount.

While this vacuum isn't on sale right now, it is one of our favorite robot vacuums of the year. The Roomba J7 Plus made our list as the best poop-avoiding model on the market right now. That's useful if you've got pets and want to avoid a "poopocalypse." It uses PreciseVision Navigation to avoid poop, as well as any other obstacles, so there's no need to pick up before you run it. It generates a map of your home, which allows you to set no-go zones, and you can set it to clean on a customized schedule so it's not running while you're trying to relax. The J7 Plus includes an auto-emptying dustbin. It's a great purchase at any discount, let alone one that saves you $150.
This self-emptying robot vacuum and mop combo unit usually retails for close to a thousand bucks, but right now, you can go ahead and knock a staggering $370 off of the list price. That brings your final cost all the way down to $500. Roborock vacuums fare consistently well in our tests, so this is a deal worth pouncing on if you're in need of some fully automated floor care in your smart home.
Head on over to our list of the best robot vacuums we've tested, and you'll find the Dreamebot D10 Plus right at the top of our list. It, well, cleaned up in our lab-based cleaning tests, keeping up with models that cost considerably more, while also offering a self-emptying design and a built-in mopping mode at a much lower cost than much of the competition. It's an easy cleaner to recommend at full price, but for Prime Day, you can save $120 and bring the final cost down to $280.
If you're in a home with a lot of pet hair, the iRobot Roomba S9 Plus is a solid option. It won a CNET Editors' Choice Award and is one of our favorite robot vacuums of the year -- and right now you can get it for more than $100 less. It picks up hair well, works on plush carpets and has a self-emptying dustbin.
It won't empty its own bin like fancier robot vacuums will, and it won't mop your floors, either -- but if you just want a Wi-Fi connected robot vacuum that syncs up with Alexa and the Google Assistant for voice-activated cleaning runs, this little bot will get the job done. It's relatively inexpensive to begin with, at $230, but right now, for Prime Day, you can get it for $100 less.
The RoboVac 25C made its way onto our list of the best robot vacuums for 2023 as our favorite budget option. And it's an even better value when you can pick it up at a discount. It's suitable for both carpet and hardwood floors, and boasts 1,500 Pascal of suction for thorough cleaning. While it doesn't feature the floor-mapping capabilities of pricier models, it is equipped with drop-sensing technology and Wi-Fi connectivity so you can activate it through your phone or smart home hub. It can run for up to 100 minutes on a full charge, and will automatically return to its included charging base when low on power.
This model is available from Walmart for $129 right now. You may find cheaper sellers, but selecting the one sold and shipped by Walmart specifically will qualify you for free 90-day returns, whereas other sellers may not offer returns.
