If you’ve ever considered getting a Roomba, now’s the time, and have I got a hot Internet deal for you!
The Roomba, in case you haven’t heard, is the little disk-shaped robotic vacuum cleaner. I’m sure that you’ve seen them somewhere – in an ad, at a friend’s, or even in a television show – it looks like a dinner plate gliding around the room on the floor under its own power. In fact, it looks like nothing more than a cute pet robot disk, wandering around your room. But, in fact, it is a vacuum cleaner, diligently and tirelessly picking up the dirt, lint and hair from your floor.
If you’re anything like me, the first time you heard about the Roomba (which could be right now), you thought that it was the most ridiculous thing you had ever heard of. How lazy do you have to buy a robot vacuum to clean your floor? And it probably doesn’t even work all that well anyways; how could it?
Well, I thought that about my Tilia Foodsaver too, until I got one, and as you all know by now, I adore it and can’t imagine how I lived without it.
Well, guess what. I was wrong about the Roomba, and if you were thinking those thoughts about it, you were too.

It turns out that the Roomba is a great vacuum cleaner, that it really works – vacuuming your floors while you leave it completely unattended (or sit and watch it if you have nothing better to do) – and that people who have it, including everyone I know who has one (hey, I live in Silicon Valley, where all the geeks have all the toys), can’t sing its praises highly enough.
But the thing that really cinched it for me is that everyone I know who has pets and a Roomba – and all the consumer reviews by consumers who have pets – consistently praised how well the Roomba deals with pet hair on carpets, even in homes with multiple pets. Like mine.
Here’s what some of them are saying:
“I got my new roomba today, and I can’t say enough about how great it is. We had about 2 weeks of fur from our 2 golden retrievers built up on the carpet (yes – I really do hate to vacuum). I let the roomba go, and it sucked it up with no problem at all. In only about 15 minutes, it had done an AMAZING job. “
“We purchased this vacuum a few days ago. We love it! It cleans our floors and gets our little dog’s hair off it really well! Our house looks so clean now and it makes you say,” How did I ever get along without it?” “
“My kids thought this would be a useful and needed Mother’s Day gift for me. I am just thrilled with it and amazed at how much dirt it picks up, how it finds the dirt and how thorough it is.”
Now you can see why I was convinced!
Only geez, the Roombas on sale now at the local electronics outlets – the most current generation of Roombas – are over $300! That was disappointing to discover.
But after searching online (hey, this is the Internet Patrol, after all) I discovered that the last version of the Roomba – the Roomba Discovery 4100, affectionally known as the Roomba Red – can be had for less than half the price, and hey, guess what! All the great reviews online (including those above) are about the Roomba Red!
And guess what else! I discovered the best deal going on right now. So I grabbed one for myself, and then I thought that I should tell all of my readers about it. Because right now, you can get the Roomba Red at Amazon for only $149.00. But what, there’s more (ugh, I sound like Ron Popeil). That includes free shipping. And you don’t pay sales tax. The $149.00 is all that you pay.
But there’s still more.
Because it turns out that right now, this very minute, Amazon is running a special deal where if you buy a household appliance for $125 or more, they give you an instant additional $25.00 off if you use a special discount code (which I’m about to give you) during the checkout process.
So your total cost for a Roomba Red, including shipping and everything, is a cool $125.00. No catches, no gimmicks.
So here’s the discount code: JANCLEAR
And here’s the link to buy the Roomba Red from Amazon (or click on the picture of the Roomba – isn’t it cute?):
