It’s time for some spring cleaning, but let’s be smart about it — both with the tech we buy to help us and the money we spend.
Wellbots has an extra special discount on one of the most popular and affordable iRobot robovacs around, and it’s exclusive to Verge readers. From now through Sunday, April 10th, you can get the Roomba i3 Plus for $459 when you use code VERGE40. This promo code knocks an additional $40 off the already-discounted price of $499. It’s not the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this robot vacuum, but it’s the best price since early 2022 — and since iRobot added more features like smart mapping via a firmware update, making it an even better value. Additionally, if you’re in the US, purchasing from Wellbots may not require you to pay sales tax depending on which state you live in.
The Roomba i3 Plus is an excellent robot vacuum that self-empties its waste bin into the included cleaning station, holds over a month’s worth of dirt, and has the aforementioned mapping smarts that make it a more efficient cleaning buddy. It also has programmable no-go zones to ensure it focuses on the rooms in your home that you want it to. Plus, its rollers are designed to tackle long hair and pet hair without excessive tangling and clogging. It’s really hard to beat this robot vacuum’s capabilities without spending, well, hundreds more.
