Neato Botvac D5 Robot Vacuum: $400 (after sale and 20% coupon) at Bed Bath and Beyond

The Neato D5 is on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond for $499. That's $100 off the normal price. Add on a trusty 20% off Bed Bath & Beyond coupon and your total comes to $400 + tax. (BB&B also offers 4% cashback rebates, if you're into that.)

Being at Bed Bath & Beyond makes this deal. The D5 has been at this price at other places* recently. But Bed Bath & Beyond's return policy is something I wouldn't forgo with one of these.

I strongly prefer Neato over Roomba because of their superior (imo) mapping and navigation abilities. The one knock you'll see on them is long-term reliability. (I suspect it's something that happens with all robot vacuum brands.) I haven't experienced it, but you'll see a lot of reviews claiming problems after the warranty expired. That's where BB&B and their great return policy comes into play. I wouldn't buy these things anywhere else...well, I guess Costco, too, but they don't carry Neato anymore in US stores.


*Why not do a price match? They wouldn't do it since BB&B sells a unique model number.

Been eyeing this and the botvac connected version. But BBB return policy does make it sweeter deal.

From second hand sources I've read the D5 has the features of the Connected, but with newer generation hardware.

This definitely looks like it has potential, but how long can I expect to wait for them to send me a 20% off coupon?

Actually, I got the email for 20% off now, but it's not showing up in the valid offers section at checkout. Has anyone gotten this to work yet?

-edit-

Finally got it to work after editing one of the contact fields away from the right value and back to the right one. Weird, but whatever.

I was referring to the Botvac Connected, not the D7. Regarding the map feature, there's some conflicting information on that, that at least suggests the map may be available on the D5 now.

Yes but the navigation is still not as good with the 900 series imo

Didn't know that we could return at any time to BBB if item does not work. Is it for all the items or just this Neato?

I recently purchased Roomba from BBB (PM to frys). Hope it has the same warranty as above.

Thanks

It's a store-wide policy. Although, I've never tested it with something like a vacuum. BB&B famously used to take back anything they sold, without proof it was bought there. They recently restricted it to cut down on abuse. I believe you now need a receipt, but still not a box.

According to CNET:
The D5 picks up less animal hair than other machines. It lacks special cleaning modes, Alexa support, coverage maps and other advanced abilities on board Neato's flagship Botvac.

The bottom line Neato's midtier Botvac D5 offers plenty robot vacuum for the price, but you're better off spending extra on the most capable robot vacuum the company offers.
