Nobody wants to vacuum everyday, but if you don't want dirt to accumulate between cleanings, you have to. Either that, or some thing has to.

The answer to your mid-week dirt destruction conundrum is a robot vacuum. They turn themselves on while you're at work, and tidy the floors enough to get by until your next proper cleaning. And some of the best ones are still manufactured by iRobot, the company that basically invented the category years ago.

These little helpers have come a long way since the early days, and if you think it's time to get in on the action, today's the day. Amazon's offering 30% off the iRobot Roomba 870, which amounts to over $180 off, today only.

We tested a similar model this year, the Roomba 980, and loved it. The 870 should offer similar performance, and also ships with not one but two Virtual Walls, used to prevent the vacuum from entering off-limits rooms or sections of rooms. And don't worry, most robot vacs can avoid stairs all on their own.
