2020 is the year that brings frivolous luxuries — previously only available to the Jetsons and perhaps the one percent — to the rest of us. Sure, self-driving cars and space travel are still reserved for outrageous wealth, but it’s time for the rest of us to indulge a little, too. And doesn’t indulgence feel so much better when it’s not actually that indulgent?
Robot vacuums are the perfect foray into the luxuries you thought you’d never have. And three of the best are under $200 — but just for today, so you have to think fast.
Even the Jetsons never imagined that housework could be this easy (and so affordable).
With over 10,000 reviews, this top-rated robovac is extra slim at 2.85”, extra powerful with 1500Pa, and is quieter than your average vacuum. Since it’s so slim, it gets all those hard-to-reach spots under couches and dressers without being forced to move all your furniture. It also has laser sensors to avoid getting stuck on carpets, bumping into walls, or falling down a flight of stairs.
One pet owner says her skepticism was erased right when the vacuum came home with her. “[I thought a robot vacuum] would be annoying on a daily basis plus freak out my cats,” she wrote. “This is so quiet I don't mind it doing its thing while I do other stuff and my cats just watch it go and don't hide from it.”
“The thing cleans amazingly,” one shopper noted. “Every time we use it the dirt reservoir is full. That might be an indictment of us, but I think it is more a testament for how well the Eufy cleans...Sadly, we have already named our Eufy ‘Rover’ and I fear we are being taken over by the robots. I guess that will be OK as long as our floors are clean.”
You can even set a schedule for your Eufy to clean when you’re not around. It has a 100-minute battery life and will return to its dock to charge when needed.

With stronger suction power at 2000Pa, this is among the most powerful robot vacuums on the market, all while maintaining the slim and quiet design you get with the 12 model.
It has all the features you get with the 12, like extended battery life and sensors, plus a few perks. When this robovac comes across an extra dirty area, it automatically boosts power to take care of the mess. It also allows you to set boundary strips if there are areas in your house you’d like for the vacuum to avoid.
Using an app as well as Amazon Alexa compatibility, this vacuum can do all the dirty work without you so much as lifting a finger. It’s basically a super cost-effective housekeeper.
If you’d rather do your vacuuming yourself, there’s an Amazon daily deal for you, too. This lightweight, handheld, cordless vacuum has all the power in its super slim design. With extended battery life and a removable battery for easy mobility, charging is made easy.
LED lights in the brush head illuminate dark areas so you don’t miss a speck, and its bagless design makes disposing of dust super easy. Adjust between three modes and six attachments to suit every cleaning need — this vacuum has it all.
Shop it: Eufy HomeVac S11 Go, Cordless Stick-Vacuum Cleaner, $200 (was $270), amazon.com
