If you’ve dreamt of having a Roomba, but can’t bring yourself to spend $400 or more, this Anker deal is the answer to your dusty house’s problems.

The Anker RoboVac 10 is on sale for $199.99, which is pretty close to what you’d spend on any other vacuum cleaner. The RoboVac 10 is normally $400, so that’s 60 percent off to let a robot do the cleaning for you.


Anker is known for powerful batteries, and its vacuum is no different. The RoboVac 10 has a 2600 mAh battery that keeps it busy for 100 minutes of cleaning with a consistently powerful suction. It can detect and adjust to changes in surfaces. When the battery is almost dead, it automatically returns to the charging dock.

With multiple modes for cleaning and automated scheduling, this is as close as you can get to Rosie from The Jetsons without breaking the bank. Check out the deal here.
