Nothing gets us excited quite like a good robot vacuum sale, and there’s one that started today youdon’t want to miss. Ecovacs makes a smart robot vacuum called the Deebot N79S that works with a smartphone app as well as with Alexa and Google Home. But that’s not the only thing that makes it special.
Unlike other smart robot vacuums, the Deebot is priced much, much lower than average without sacrificing quality. That’s why it ranks among the best smart robot vacuums. It typically sells for $230 and is on sale for $180 on Amazon. But right now through March 24, you can save an extra $40 by entering the code “ECOVACSN79S” (so hard to remember that one!) at checkout. The lowest price we’ve see otherwise was around $150, but we haven’t seen any worthwhile price drops on this model yet this year.
The N70S is not the best affordable model we’ve tested—that title belongs to the eufy RoboVac 11c ($299.99 on Amazon)—but it did once wear that crown because it cleaned well and offered functional (albeit simple) smartphone and smart assistant control. The only reason it got dethroned is that it doesn’t have as many bells and whistles. You can’t tell it where it can and can’t go, and it did struggle with high-pile furniture and low clearances under furniture.
Considering the N79S is practically half the cost of the eufy 11c right now, we can’t think of a reason not to test the waters of smart cleaning aids in your home.
Prices are accurate at the time this article was published, but may change over time.
