iRobot Roomba 960 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner Bundle with Accessories (6 Items)

https://www.amazon.com/iRobot-Roo...B01KMJWPR4 -- Expired

E ZEE ELECTRONICS is the seller, with Prime, I didn't have to pay tax in AZ vs +$50 if buying from Amazon.

Same seller has the non-bundled version for $599 as well: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ID8H6NO

According to 3C it's lowest ever been.

EDIT: Received an email from BBB today about a Roomba deal, expires 5/13/2017, I've attached a PDF.

This is pretty much the "new normal" price for Roomba 960. Bed Bath and Beyond has it for $599 all the time, including now:

https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/...roomba+960

It's not supposed to work, but if you take a 20% BBB coupon in-store, you can get the 960 for $480 after coupon. WAY better deal than this Amazon link.

First time that I've seen this model posted on slickdeals. Usually it's the 880 (good) or the 650 (crap).

If you want a Roomba that has cameras and can map your house, this is a pretty good deal. My 1BR condo is too small to justify buying such a high end model. Our 860 has been doing a good job so far.

Good reviews according to Amazon and review sites: https://smartrobotichome.com/wi-f...80-review/

Good find. I've been waiting for a deal for this and the 980 but I haven't actually made a decision yet.

This is probably as good of a deal as I'll see for the 960, but I'm hoping the 980 goes on sale for mother's day.

Edit: Actually it looks like some of the mother's day pricing is already available. With the 980 being available for $799 from iRobot's website. http://store.irobot.com/

Best Buy also has the sale prices available now.

Edit 2: Probably all of their official resellers have the sale now, including Bed Bath & Beyond. I might try to get it from there with a 20% off coupon if I can.

Bought the same from last year's BF deal at a slightly price. Great gizmo that doors an amazing job of cleaning floors from dust and light dirt accumulations.

This is not a SD. It's pretty much the "new normal" price for Roomba 960. Bed Bath and Beyond has it "on sale" for $599 all the time, including now:

https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/...roomba+960

It's not supposed to work, but if you take a BBB 20% coupon in-store, you can get a 960 for $480 after coupon. WAY better deal than this Amazon link.

Also, if you get a 960, know that it's retarded in a dark room. The cameras just don't work right and it often can't get back to its base. iRobot recommends cleaning times set for when there's at least some light. The 8xx series is still better, IMO. Cleans better and works regardless of the light conditions in the room, which is great for overnight scheduled cleaning.

Consumer Reports hates the 980, they rated it terribly!

I wanted the 980 as well, but the 960 is rated so much higher, I think it's well worth the investment.

Roomba is specifically excluded from the 20% off coupon, so good luck finding a BBB manager that will accept it on a Roomba.

Just the fact that you can get it online w/o tax makes it a slicker deal than BBB (~$50 in taxes here in AZ). That is, unless you can find a BBB that will take the coupon on the Roomba...

Just for reference, ConsumerReports rates the 880 and 960 @ 87 points, while the 980 is rated 79. #1 rated @ 89 points is the Samsung POWERbot SR20H9051 Series.

Here's the link to the terms of the 20% OFF BBB coupon:

https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/...atic/11151

Roomba 800 & 900 series clearly stated.

That's why I posted this deal, the BBB coupon would be an extreme YMMV...

Yeah, that's why I said, literally, "it's not supposed to work" in the post you're replying to. I can read. It DOES work in-store. Be cool and you should have no problem in store.

NO ONE I've recommended that to has had a problem. I got one a few months ago using the 20% coupon with no problems. It's not hard to do, and a much better deal than Amazon.

But like I said before, the 960 is retarded in dark rooms and doesn't clean as well as the 8xx series, so you really should just get a 805 from Costco for $325 and call it good.

Good deal - essentially getting an improved 880 with mapping technology.

That 980 @ BBB *if coupon is successfully applied* is extremely tempting as well.

How do you get it for $325?
