Robot vacuums have become some of the most expensive devices we buy for our homes, but they don't have to be. The power and convenience of automated cleaning can be had without spending a full paycheck on a robot, especially with the many deals available during Amazon Prime Day and competing sales events at Walmart and Best Buy

As a robot vacuum tester, I love many robots, but there are some I wouldn't pay full price for. Luckily, many robots are often heavily discounted, making them more worth the purchase during an event like Prime Day than otherwise. We test many robot vacuums and robot vacuum and mop combinations at ZDNET, and we've gathered the best Prime Day deals so far so you can get the most bang for your hard-earned buck.

Best robot vacuum deals for Amazon Prime Day 2024

  • Current price: $800
  • Original price: $1,300

The Roborock S7 Max Ultra is one of the company's flagship robot vacuums from 2023, but it's a fantastic option, especially at its lowest price ever of $800. This all-in-one cleaning station delivers a hands-free experience with a self-emptying dustbin and self-washing and drying mop pads. It's also our pick for the best Roborock vacuum for pet owners.

  • Current price: $400
  • Original price: $800

The iRobot Roomba j7+ is our pick for the best Roomba vacuum overall, as a self-emptying robot vacuum that is smart enough to detect and avoid obstacles, even pet waste, thanks to its P.O.O.P feature. As it cleans, it empties its dustbin automatically at the base station and you don't have to worry about it for up to 60 days.

  • Current price: $951
  • Original price: $1,200

The Deebot T30S combo is fairly new but lives up to the hype. This has become my go-to upstairs robot vacuum and mop because it functions as a cleaning hub, made complete by the self-emptying cordless vacuum that charges right on the robot's charging station.

  • Current price: $400
  • Original price: $650

You can get a Eufy X8 Pro twin-turbine robot vacuum that is perfect for pet owners. With 4,000Pa of suction power, this robot vacuum includes a self-empty station and smooth navigation to leave beautiful carpet lines behind.

Review: Eufy X8 Pro

  • Current price: $401
  • Original price: $700

The Eureka E10s features a bagless self-emptying station, which holds all the robot's collected debris for up to 45 days. This means that once you're ready to empty it out, you can just shake it out into a trash bin and don't have to worry about buying replacement dust bags.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024? 

Amazon Prime Day 2024 will happen on July 16 and 17. It's a two-day annual sales event.

Are robot vacuums really cheaper on Prime Day? 

Most of the robot vacuum discounts you find around Prime Day are steeper, but not all of them are. The robot vacuum market is very saturated, and the high competition makes for constant markdowns. There are many robot vacuums that hit their all-time lowest price during Prime Day, but you can find deals for these devices year-round.

How did we choose these Prime Day deals?

As a robot vacuum tester, I've become very familiar with unique features and tested different devices in every price range. This experience has made me realize that the robot vacuum market is seeing a lot of competition. It also helps me discern which robot vacuums are worth their retail price and when a discount is a good deal. 

I check robot vacuum deals weekly, always choosing the ones that deliver the most features for the least money. Using our expertise and different tools to track deals, we can determine when a deal is worth it and ensure that we only cover those.
