With big savings on robot vacuums, DNA kits, beauty products, and more, this weekend has some of the most exciting deals we’ve seen all week. And that’s huge, because here at Reviewed, we test tons of products throughout the year and use price tracking tools to make sure we’re only recommending items that we truly believe are a great value. Here are some of the most awesome products to shop and save on this weekend.
1. Our favorite robot vacuum—on sale for the first time ever
Robot vacuums are a great option that can help keep your floors tidy in between deeper cleaning sessions, and right now, you can get one of the most impressive robot vacuums we’ve ever tested on sale—for the first time ever.
The iRobot Roomba i7+ is in a class all its own. Unlike other robot vacuums, the i7+ actually empties its dirt bin all by itself and then keeps on vacuuming. You won’t have to think about vacuuming for weeks at a time thanks to this. This WiFi-enabled vac also uses smart technology to learn and map out your home, and you can also customize how it cleans your home right from an app. Super convenient and extremely innovative, this robot vacuum usually retails for $1099, but you can save $150 now and get it for Mother’s Day, so it’s a great time to try it out.

It’s a little slower to brew than others that we’ve tried, but you can get a robust, flavorful brew that’s worth waiting a couple extra minutes before.
