Spring cleaning alert: This Roomba is the cheapest it's been all year

Spring is finally here — and after a season of indoor activities, it's probably time for a home refresh and a deep cleaning. If you're dreaming of gleaming floors, check this out: Walmart is offering up an incredible deal on iRobot's Roomba i1.

If you're the type of person who gets joy out of seeing lines in the carpet after a thorough vacuuming, you won't miss out on that satisfaction with this robot vac. Its straight-line navigation uses floor tracking sensors to suck up dirt and dust, leaving behind nothing but neat rows of clean carpet. And speaking of suction, it has a Premium 3-Stage Cleaning System along with dual multi-surface rubber brushes that adjust to hard floors and carpets alike. Shoppers love how clean it gets their floors — even the ones with pets!

"My carpet has never been this clean!" shared a satisfied customer. "We are a home with 3 dogs, two of which are very large. Our dog hair issues have been eliminated once we started using this vacuum. This vacuum has been such a huge time saver. I absolutely love it!"

You can control the iRobot Roomba i1 with its easy-to-use app, which means you can set it up so it cleans while you're out — a feature shoppers appreciate.

"I HATE sweeping!" wrote a five-star fan. "I also hate walking barefoot and feeling dirt. It is so nice coming home and not having to sweep before taking my shoes off. This machine has definitely taken a load off of me! It also helps make us more aware of leaving stuff laying around on the floor, which in turn helps our house to stay picked up throughout the week. Win, win! Love it!"

One of the best features is the base with automatic dirt disposal. With this part of the gadget, the vacuum can empty itself its own dustbin that can hold up to 60 days' worth of debris.

"Who knew that the self-empty bin would make such a huge difference?" asked a rave reviewer. "Not me. This robot literally does everything by itself. Very impressed. The app is very easy to use. Set up took less than 5 minutes. Yay!"
