The Best Cyber Monday Vacuuming and Cleaning Deals

A new vacuum or carpet cleaner might not be the most exciting gift you could unwrap, but every home needs one and it’s a way bigger bummer to buy one for yourself. If you gift your loved one a reliable carpet cleaner, they’ll get value out of it every day. They may even start to like it. These are our favorite picks from iRobot, Roborock, and more.

While newer Dyson vacuums have longer battery life and more high-powered features, the Dyson V8 is the best budget option in our guide to the Best Dyson Vacuums. It runs for up to 40 minutes on a charge, it has the same convenient, modular design as other Dyson stick vacuums, and it converts into a hand vacuum to fit into awkward crevices.

This is an older model of Dyson hand vacuum; still, senior editor Michael Calore noted that it “kicks ass” in his review. This is a decent upgrade if you want a little more suction and a little longer run time.

We saw this reach $116 this Cyber Week, so we’re hoping to see it go down again. If it does, or you’ve just been eyeing it,  this grooming kit has a vacuum-like suction tool that you run over your pet as you would if you were brushing them in order to remove all that excess hair that gets on everything. You can even use it to quickly vacuum your couch.


While we prefer Dyson’s stick vacuum cleaners, they are far from cheap, and this Tineco is a decent option at the discounted price. It has three power modes, converts to handheld, and can go for 40 minutes between charges.

Sometimes you just need a handheld vacuum for spills and minor tidy-ups. The WandVac is the best handheld vacuum, not because it was the strongest performer (though it sucked up dirt just fine), but because it’s affordable, compact, and has a handy base station. On the downside, the attachments feel a bit cheap.

Roborock S4

We’ve tried almost every robot vacuum from Roborock, and many of them are on sale along with this one. But we think the S4 offers pretty good value for the money, especially at this price. It’s Wi-Fi-enabled, and the precision lidar navigation works better than some of the other affordable robot vacuums we’ve tried. It also has a larger dust bin and battery.

We also liked this pet-poop-detecting model, which came out last year. We said it was the best robot vacuum if you’d picked up a pandemic pet.

In my testing, I found that the Roomba i3+ needed a bit more navigation help than the i7+, which is an all-around more powerful vacuum. But, the i3+’s lower price made it the top pick in our robot vacuum guide. 

However, I (Adrienne) have found that iRobot’s self-emptying bins are consistently the most reliable. This is a reasonable price for a still effective older robot vacuum with iRobot’s proprietary rubber carpet roller.


The midrange 600 series is still quite good, and we liked the 692 (8/10, WIRED Recommends), though it is a couple of years old now. It lacks the bells and whistles of some more recent robot vacs with adaptive navigation, which means it bumps around, but it can avoid most obstacles and responds to voice commands through Alexa or Google Assistant.

iRobot no longer sells the E5 directly, and it’s an older model that uses reactive (i.e., random ping-ponging) navigation. However, it still has iRobot’s easy-to-clean rubber brushes and Dirt Detect to sniff out trouble spots on your floors.
