Read our review of the best robot vacuums.

A wide array of iRobot’s Roomba robot vacuums—longtime Wirecutter picks—are on sale right now. Our vacuum expert, senior staff writer Liam McCabe, thinks the best deal is on the Roomba 675, the Wi-Fi–enabled version of our perennial overall top pick, the Roomba 614. It’s down to $180 from its usual $250, a terrific price (lower than the price of the non–Wi-Fi 614, in fact). The smart-feature-laden Roomba i3 is Liam’s next recommendation, at $100 off its street price. And rounding out the group are the deals on the Roomba 960 (new and refurbished), an upgrade pick with more power and longevity than the other models offer. Welcome your new robot overlords for less.

A vacuum for hard floors

Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction Canister Vacuum
Deal price: $239; street price: $295
Read our review of the best vacuum for hardwood floors.

We really like the Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction vacuum for use on bare floors and low-pile rugs, and it’s currently down to $239 from a street price around $300. It lacks a rug roller, meaning it’s not good on thick carpeting, and it’s slightly louder than our other (extremely quiet) picks from Miele. But if you can live with those minor drawbacks, it’s an eminently reliable cleaning machine—we have staffers who have been using their Swiss-made Miele vacuums for over a decade without a single hiccup.

Deals on Dysons

Dyson V7 Absolute Stick Vacuum + Additional Tools
Deal price: $250; street price: $350
Read our review of the best cordless stick vacuum.

Dyson all but invented the cordless vacuum, and its constantly updated models have always topped our testing. Many of them are marked down right now, from the lightweight, lightest-duty V7 (great for apartments, with a roughly 30-minute run time) to the heavy-duty, physically heavier V10 (which has enough battery life to clean a good-sized home on a single charge). The V8, on sale as a refurbished model, strikes a balance of power, longevity, and weight. Note that the models listed here that are designated Animal or Allergy have the same filtration and performance as the fully-decked-out Absolute models and lack only a few of the accessory tools the Absolute versions come with. Dyson vacuums do not come cheap most of the time; this is a good chance to get one at a lower price.

Comfortable cordless vacuum

Tineco Pure One S11
Deal price: $250; street price: $350
Read our review of the best cordless stick vacuum.

Cordless vacuums tend to be pricier than their plug-in forebears, but their convenience more than makes up for that. The Tineco Pure One is a solid alternative to our top-pick Dyson. It’s slightly weaker but more comfortable to use: It has a trigger lock, whereas the Dyson makes you hold the trigger down continuously—which is often a literal pain. And in our tests, the Tineco’s dirt-detection sensor proved helpful at identifying heavily soiled areas and automatically increasing the vacuum’s power. If you’re looking for a decent cleaner with some handy built-in features, this is a great chance to save on a quality option.

Organize your cables and tech accessories

Read our review of the best bag and cable organizers.

With great tech comes great peripheral tracking responsibility. Defeat the rat nest and organize all your chargers, cords, and dongles with the Incase Nylon Accessory Organizer, a compact and sturdy bag with a mesh pocket big enough to store a MacBook power adapter (with the cord in a different pocket), five more mesh or solid pockets of various sizes, a small zip pocket ideal for SD cards, a pen loop, and three small elastic loops that are the right size for earbuds. Plenty of ways to tame even a large knot of cables.

Super deal on a super robovac

The Roborock S4 Max.

Roborock S4 Max Robot Vacuum
Deal price: $320; street price: $430
Read our review of the best robot vacuums.

At $320, this is an outstanding deal on our recently updated upgrade robot-vacuum pick, the Roborock S4 Max. Superficially similar to our previous upgrade pick, the S4, the updated S4 Max offers stronger suction, an enhanced map-saving system, and—most important—nearly double the battery life. The S4 Max learns your house’s layout, and you use an interactive map app to dispatch it straight to the mess (say, the overturned cat litter box in the laundry room) or to tell it what to avoid (the tippy plant stand in the corner of the living room, for example). With the on-page coupon, the S4 Max is selling for just a little more than what we normally see the S4 go for—an amazing deal for this impressive and efficient robovac.

Superclean air

Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier
Deal price: $150; street price: $190
Read our review of the best air purifier.

The Coway AP-1512HH air purifier has been our top pick since 2015. We’ve tested it against more than 40 other air purifiers, and none has ever matched its combination of exceptional air cleaning, long-term performance, small size, energy efficiency, and ease of use. It’s powerful enough for rooms up to 350 square feet—more than enough for most bedrooms and living rooms. Now down to $150, the sale price is a steep drop from its usual street price, and not far above its lowest price ever. If you’re concerned about allergens, mold, or smoke (including from wildfires), this is a good time to save on one—the Coway, and many other purifiers, are often in short supply during the pollen and fire seasons.

Budget bots, even cheaper

Eufy RoboVac Max 11S Robot Vacuum
Deal price: $170; street price: $240
Read our review of the best robot vacuums.

The slim and quiet Eufy vacuums are not quite as durable as other robot vacuums, but they work well enough for most small spaces or sparsely covered floors. The 11S—along with other Eufy models whose names begin with a number instead of a letter—was the quietest robot vacuum we tested, a full 5 decibels softer than the basic Roomba, and its short profile makes it less likely to get stuck under furniture as it bumbles around your space. One downside of the low price is that the Eufy models are less repairable than what you can find in iRobot’s Roomba line, but a Eufy makes for a good starter robot vacuum.

Read our review of the best washing machines (and their matching dryers).

If you’re a fan of top-loading washing machines, our best-performing pick, the LG WT7300C, is down to $700. Top-loaders don’t clean quite as well as our front-loading picks, but they are often more mildew resistant, and some people find them more comfortable to load and unload. In our testing, the LG cleaned nearly as well as the best front-loaders, and it handled huge loads of laundry without straining—something most top-loaders struggled with. This is the first deal we’ve seen on this efficient and reliable washer, so now is a great time to save if you’re a top-loader devotee.

Never knew you needed one

OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Stand

OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Stand
Deal price: $6 with promo code BLKFRI + store pickup; street price: $8
Read our review of the best baby bottles (and bottle brush).

A bottle brush is one of those simple tools you’ve probably never thought about—but once you get one, you won’t believe you lived without it. OXO’s Tot Bottle Brush comes with its own stand and is a staple of Wirecutter’s test kitchen, as well as of many staffers’ home kitchens. It’s great for cleaning bottles (baby or otherwise), of course, but it’s also handy for scrubbing the far corners of a dishwasher, the insides of a coffee carafe, and the tight confines of a flower vase. It’s useful in the garage or workshop, too, for getting gunk out of yard equipment and pipes. On sale at a nice (if modest) discount, this brush is worth having on hand for all manner of fiddly tasks.

Finish All-in-One Powerball Dishwasher Detergent (94-pack)
Deal price: $11 with on-page coupon; street price: $14
Read our blog post on how to clean wine glasses.

If you washed all your stemware by hand after Thanksgiving, take note for next time: Your wine glasses most likely can go safely in the dishwasher, and Finish’s All-in-One Powerball dishwashing detergent tabs will make the job even easier. Finish Powerball detergent is our pick for cleaning stemware, and it excels at cleaning tougher messes on dishes and pans, too. What else is there to say? Only that a box of 94 tablets is down to $11—a nice discount over the usual $15 or so.

Protect-A-Bed AllerZip Smooth Pillow Protectors (2-Pack, Standard)
Deal price: $16; street price: $26
Read our review of the best mattress and pillow protectors and encasements.

Pillow protectors keep allergens like mites, pollen, and dust out of your pillows, and that may help you sleep easier. Our top pick after extensive testing, the Protect-A-Bed AllerZip Smooth Pillow Protector, is down to $17 in the queen size. (These protectors work for most pillows, but they’re also available in a standard size for $16 and a king size for $19.) The AllerZip protector stood out against competitors for its quality construction, including sturdy seams and outstanding zippers that offer enough protection to extend the life of your pillows by years. The smooth, water-resistant fabric feels softer and less plasticky, too.

Eufy RoboVac 35C Robot Vacuum
Deal price: $150; street price: $290
Read our review of the best robot vacuums.

The Eufy RoboVac 35C, a variant of our budget pick for the best robot vacuum, is down to a new low price of $150 with additional savings for Target RedCard holders. This deal makes the RoboVac 35C the same price as the RoboVac 11S (also on sale), and it has a little more suction power, Wi-Fi and smart assistant connectivity, and strips for setting boundaries. Although the Eufy RoboVac models are affordable, they aren’t as durable as other models, and many of the parts aren’t replaceable.

LensPen NLP-1
Deal price: $7; street price: $10
Read our article about how to clean your camera lens.

Cleaning camera lenses can be a bit complex, but specific tools can help you get the job done. Whether you’re out shooting or sitting down to clean your lens at home, a LensPen is an essential tool. If you see particles on the lens, use the retractable brush of the LensPen to wipe away as much as possible. Next, flip the LensPen over and uncap the carbon-charged felt tip, which absorbs oils or grease that may be on the glass and won’t damage the coatings on the lens. The LensPen is down to a new low price of $7 (from $10) with free shipping.

Spin-Clean Record Washer

This is only the second time we’ve seen a deal on our pick for cleaning and protecting your vinyl records, the Spin-Clean Record Washer. Down to $60 from a street price of $80, this device is the most cost-effective way to keep your records in ideal condition. Though this option involves a little more manual labor, it’ll save you from spending hundreds on a vacuum-based record-cleaning machine.

Read our review of the best car wash, wax, and detailing supplies.

This recurring $7 deal, which drops to $6 when you clip an on-page coupon, is back again for a bottle of Stoner Car Care Tarminator, a pick from our guide to the best car wash, wax, and detailing supplies. It can help remove stubborn tar and bugs from your car that a mild soap might not be able to loosen up. We’ve seen deals for slightly less, but they don’t usually last long. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to grab an extra bottle to keep on hand now, especially if you find a lot of grime stuck on your car.
