Target deal price: $350 (RedCard holders save an extra 5%); street price: $450
Best Buy deal price: $350; street price: $450

Other things to know: Doesn’t work quite as fast as some competing models. Privacy concerns have been raised by some after Amazon's acquisition of iRobot.

iRobot Roomba i1+ Robot Vacuum — Another Good Option
Walmart deal price: $288; street price: $530

What we like: Variable of our top pick and a self-emptying model exclusive to Walmart. Same sturdy, long-lasting base as cheaper Roomba models but adds more suction and tangle-resistant brushes for a boost in cleaning power.

Other things to know: Not as quick, clever, or controllable as our Roborock picks.

iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum — Budget Pick
Amazon deal price: $179; street price: $220

What we like: Budget pick tried-and-true robot vacuum that's much more durable and repairable than similar bots from other brands and is better at cleaning rugs. A nimble navigator that rarely gets stuck.

iRobot Roomba i7+ Robot Vacuum — Pick Variant
Best Buy deal price: $500; street price: $600

What we like: A smarter variant of our top robot vacuum pick. Great navigation with the ability to clean or ignore certain rooms. Self-emptying base makes it more self-sufficient than other models. Reliable and repairable.

Other things to know: Aging model, but still very good. Expensive. Navigation can sometimes be fussy. Self-emptying base can be jarringly loud when active.

Best Buy deal price: $500; street price: $650

What we like: An upcoming pick with good suction power, up to 60 minutes runtime, and Dyson's de-tangling Motorbar cleaner head. The laser on the Laser Slim Fluffy cleaner head shows hard-to-see dust on hard floors, and auto mode optimizes power and run time based on the debris picked up.

Other things to know: Currently in testing, but very promising and likely to be a pick in our stick vacuum guide.

What we like: Powerful motor. Great on hardwood floors. Light and portable. Significantly cheaper than our new upgrade cordless stick vacuum pick.

The multi-surface brush on the Bissell CrossWave.

Bissell CrossWave Pet Pro Mop-Vacuum Combo — Top Pick
Walmart deal price: $200; street price: $300

Other things to know: Essentially the same machine as the standard CrossWave, just better at picking up pet hair. Down to the lowest price we've seen.
