AmazonKeeping your floors clean may be tedious, but it’s necessary.
Nobody wants to attract bugs or feel like they’re walking around in a movie theater, so once or twice a week you probably find yourself with a broom or vacuum in hand.
You could outsource this chore to a Roomba, but they’re typically very expensive, which is why you should take advantage of this Amazon Warehouse Deal that cuts the price of its newest model sharply.
The Roomba 652 has all of the features you’d expect to find in a robot vacuum — multiple modes, edge detection, and the ability to set a cleaning schedule — but it has an extra I haven’t seen before. It’s smart enough to automatically return to its dock to recharge after an hour of cleaning, so you don’t find it dead under the couch.
Despite this intelligence, the Roomba 652 isn’t “smart” in the modern sense. It can’t connect to the Amazon Echo or any other smart-home hub and doesn’t even come with a remote. Everything is set up using the buttons on its face, which is low-tech, but shouldn’t really matter once the schedule is set.
Ideally, you’ll have the Roomba clean while you’re away at work so you can walk into a place that’s cleaner than you left it. As someone who recently tried a robot vacuum, I can attest to how good this feels. The biggest setback for this (or any other) robot vacuum is its price, but you can save $ 83 by buying this Roomba as an Amazon Warehouse Deal; that’s well below the lowest price it’s ever been new.
Saving money is always a good thing, but doing so when buying something that will save you time is even better.
