I have SO wanted one of these for a long time. Maybe if I drop enough hints, Brad will get me one this year for Christmas (I’m not one of those women who would get mad if my husband bought me a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. Valentine’s Day…maybe)!
Right now you can get an iRobot Roomba 560 for just $279 with FREE shipping. This is not a refurbished or remanufactured one (according to the specs). As a comparison, this exact same model is priced at $350 on Amazon.
