sales have already begun in earnest, and one of the biggest deal categories this year (as usual) is vacuum cleaners. Whether you’re looking for a cordless model or a full-on robot vacuum, all the top brands — Hoover, Neato, Dyson, Shark, Bissell and more — are offering huge price cuts already, or will be soon.
So whether you’re looking to snag a Dyson or Roomba for less, you’ve come to the right place. Here are Black Friday 2020 deals that are available now, along with some just around the corner. Note that prices were accurate at time of publication, but we’re seeing frequent fluctuations each day.
Shark’s Robot Vacuum is on sale for $195 off. Nearly half price for a vacuum that will clean your house for you isn’t a bad deal. You can limit its coverage to certain rooms, thanks to a home-mapping feature.
Save $100 off of the Hoover ONEPWR FloorMate, a wet-dry mop that can tackle hardwood, tile, laminate and area rugs.
If you can’t afford Dyson’s latest and greatest V11 model, the V10 Absolute is a solid compromise. It’s cordless (with up to an hour of battery life, according to Dyson), offers an air filtration system to expel cleaner air as it cleans and converts to a handheld mode, too.
Save $200 on the iRobot Roomba 960 robot vacuum. Best Buy has shaved its price down to $300. Not bad for an automatic floor cleaner that navigates systematically, works with a mobile app, plus Google Assistant and Alexa.
This robot vacuum from Shark doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Even so, it’s smart enough to empty its own dustbin, map floors and link to your home’s Wi-Fi. And starting on Nov. 25, Walmart will sell it for $70 off its list price.
Designed to clean both hard surfaces and area rugs, the CrossWave has two water tanks. One tank collects dirty water while the other contains the appliance’s cleaning solution.
The Neato D4 is usually priced at $430 but currently marked down to $330, and you can save yet another $50 when you apply promo code NEATOAFF50 at checkout. That’s a great price for Neato’s LaserSmart navigation tech and 75 minutes of battery life.
The Neato D7 usually lists for $800 but is currently selling at Neato for $600. But you can do better — apply promo code NEATOAFF50 at checkout to get Neato’s flagship robot vacuum for $550. That includes LaserSmart navigation, virtual no-go zones set in the mobile app and 120 minutes of battery life.
