Robot vacuums can help you maintain your floors between deeper cleaning sessions and are like having an extra set of hands when it comes to cleaning up. However, finding one that is affordable and has all the qualities you need can be tricky. Luckily, one of Amazon’s best-selling robot vacuums is now $100 off and offers some great features that'll make vacuuming even easier.

The eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac 12 normally retails for $240 but is now 42 percent off, so you'll save $100 and get it for $140. Not only that, but the brand has discounts on other models, like the much-celebrated RoboVac 11S, which usually costs $230 but is marked down to $140 when you clip the on-page coupon.

Buy the eufy by Anker, BoostIQ RoboVac 12 on Amazon

The eufy 11S and RoboVac 12 have a lot of things in common: Both are slim at 2.85-inches tall and lightweight; work on hardwood floors and medium-pile carpets; offer 100 minutes of run-time and comparable dust-box capacity; and operate at a whisper-quiet noise level, equivalent to moderate rainfall [PDF]. However, where they differ is with their suction power and warranty coverage. The RoboVac 12 has a suction power of 1500 Pascal Pressure Unit (Pa) while the eufy 11S only goes up to 1300 Pa (pro tip: The higher the Pa in a robot vacuum, the greater the suction power it'll offer). Additionally, the RoboVac 12 stands out as one of the brand’s only models with an extended two-year warranty for product coverage. While all the other versions only have one year of coverage, you can enjoy 24 months of help whenever you need it.

With over 1700 reviews and a 4.5-star rating, the RoboVac 12 gets particularly rave reviews from customers with pets. One reviewer who has three cats has loved the results. “My floors have never been cleaner, and it has truly given me a sense of freedom now that I’m not chasing endless fur every day,” the shopper wrote. Another reviewer had a RoboVac 11 prior and has been impressed with upgrading to this model. “[Most] everything has gotten a bit of an upgrade, from the way the dustbin inserts to the front brushes and the way they attach/detach to easier removal of the main brush for cleaning,” the customer wrote.

Check out the eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac 12 on Amazon and save $100 while the sale lasts. If you're interested in upgrading to one of the brand's smart robot vacuums (neither the RoboVac 12 nor 11S are smart devices), you can also get a RoboVac 15C MAX for $176 and save $104 or a RoboVac 30C MAX for $190 while saving $110.
