The beloved collocation Black Friday delights millions of people around the world and quickly empties their wallets. We’re sure it would! Who would refuse profitable deals, discounts, and sales! But if for some reason, you still do not know what it is, we’re here to explain everything to you.
The concept of “Black Friday” came from the United States and is associated with Christmas discounts. The term “Black Friday” has been used since the 60s. of the XX century. Black Friday is the traditional name for the day after Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.
Thus, “Black Friday” falls at the end of November. It’s not an official holiday but marks the beginning of Christmas discounts and crazy sales. Many stores open their doors to shoppers this day at midnight and offer discounts on goods up to 90%.
In recent decades, with the development of e-commerce, Black Friday has reached the net. On this day, you can profitably buy many products online without leaving your home.

When does Black Friday start this year?
As we’ve already mentioned, this year, both online stores and a large number of retail shops will take part in the most anticipated sale of the year.
On the eve of the world-famous promotion, many shopping centers and sites will announce discounts. The start date of the long-awaited and the largest shopping event of the year falls on November 27, 2020.
Sales will affect almost all types of goods, from sweets to high-tech equipment. Therefore, if you have long been planning to buy some useful but expensive household devices, such as a robot vacuum cleaner, then Black Friday will help you make it profitable.
So, let’s see what the largest and most famous robot manufacturers are ready to offer us this year.
If you haven’t heard of Roomba, then, most likely, you haven’t heard of robot vacuum cleaners at all.
This manufacturer is one of the first to introduce advanced technology in its robots. At the same time, along with the top and expensive models, iRobot has quite affordable and high-quality devices so that everyone can afford these vacuum cleaners.
The fresh release of Roomba i3 and i6 modifications attracted lots of attention to the brand. Models were presented in September 2020 and continued the use of high-precise mapping with automatic self-emptying function.
Though new representatives of the I series are more affordable compared to their predecessors, we shouldn’t expect significant discounts on these newcomers on the market. Customers hope to get about 10% off. However, Roomba i7/i7+ and S9/S9+ may become cheaper than last year – you can save about $100.
When it comes to more budget iRobot options, we recommend you to pay attention to the 900 and the E series. At the moment, Roomba 960 provides the best combination of price and smart functionality, while the E5 and the E6 cleaners are more powerful.
Many customers are also looking forward to Roomba 980, but it won’t be presented on Black Friday since its discontinuation.
This time, we also expect, if not more, then at least no less benefit on the brand basic and still popular devices like Roomba 690 and 675.
Many customers prefer American vacuum cleaners to Chinese ones due to various reasons. And we must say that Western companies keep a high bar.
Besides iRobot, we can note another well-known American manufacturer of household robots – Ecovacs Robotics. This company produces a line of robots under the generic name Deebot. It’s worth noting that the cost of their models is slightly lower than the price of Roombas, although the quality does not suffer at all.
But if we talk about the favorite budget Deebot robots, you should pay attention to the N79S that can be obtained with a $50 discount.
Deebot Ozmo series for combined dry and wet cleaning is the best option for those looking for perfect comprehensive cleaning and price. The best models to pay attention to are the Ozmo 920, 930, and 960. Prices stay within $400-$500. Last Black Friday, customers received discounts of approximately $100. Let’s hope that this time, manufacturers and sellers will be as generous.
Hunters for innovations will be glad to know that Deebot new models of 2020 will take part in sales too. In August, the brand presented the T8 series that includes DEEBOT Ozmo T8 AIVI and T8 models with 2-in-1 cleaning and unique Smart Object Recognition. 2020 also became the year of the launch of the new Ozmo U2 PRO vacuum with the largest dustbin and perfect pet hair cleaning.
It’s still difficult to judge what kind of discount sellers will offer us for these models. But since their prices reach $800, even 10% off will be an excellent deal.
This company doesn’t have such a wide range of robot vacuum cleaners as previous companies, but the existing robots are very worthy.
You can buy it and its S6 Pure modification for $600-$650. Starting November 27, a 20% discount is expected. But if you want this particular robot, then you should hurry up – for such a price, it will be sold in an instant.
During Black Friday 2020, pay your attention to Roborock S6 MaxV robot. Having been released in June 2020, it has already won great popularity among users for its unique ReactiveAI and Lidar Navigation, 2500Pa strong suction, and Intelligent Mopping. At the moment, the vac is $750, so the price will presumably drop by 10%-15%.
We think that many people who are good at modern technology now use or at least have heard about Anker products.
Since 2011, this company has been producing external power supplies, chargers, and cables. However, in addition to these accessories, they successfully sell robot vacuum cleaners of their own production.
If we speak about middle-range devices of the brand, Eufy 11S, 15C, 30C, and 35C cleaners will be a worthy purchase. Their regular prices don’t exceed $300, and the sales period is an opportunity to get them at $50 off. Besides, there are also their MAX modifications with higher suction, which are slightly more expensive.
But why pay more when you can wait for sales? In November, these Boost IQ technology, 2000 Pa suction, and quiet operation will cost you some $250-$270.
Three new Eufy vacuums – RoboVac G30 and G30 Edge from the Gyro Navigation series and RoboVac L70 Hybrid, will suit those who are looking for more precise navigation. Models offer preplanned row-by-row vacuuming and unique Laser iPath Navigation. The suction is also the highest among Eufy products.
The flagships cost slightly over $350, and this year we are waiting for no more than 15% discounts.
Best Neato Deals
One more worthy manufacturer of robots, Neato company, offers us its goods with a good discount. In 2004, a team of specialists established Neato Robotics in Silicon Valley, California. It is the best place for designing and manufacturing robots that are smart enough to do housework as efficiently as people.
The Neato engineers create innovative, intelligent, and powerful robot vacuum cleaners that allow you to spend less time cleaning and spend more time with their families and friends.
Almost all models of this manufacturer use high-precision proprietary laser navigation, virtual limiters, and remote control.
They also have a branded D shape, which provides the best cleaning in the corners.
In 2019, stores participating in Black Friday sales offered a 35% discount. This year we are waiting for the same discounts.
According to the previous experience, earlier models of the Neato, such as Neato D6 and Neato D5, will save you 20%.
In autumn 2020, Neato has finally updated its model range by launching the Neato D10, D9, and D8 models. The long-awaited robots from the premium lineup can boast of the widest brushes, the biggest dustbins in the market, and best-in-class control features.
As usual, the manufacturer won’t offer too big discounts on its novelties, but we can save up to 15% here during black Friday 2020.
How to buy a robot vacuum cleaner at the best price?
If you want to buy a thing as profitable as possible and take everything from the sale, you need to draw up a clear plan of action and strictly follow it. And the sooner you begin to prepare, the higher the chance to stay in the Black.
- So, first, decide on one or two models of robot vacuum cleaners that you would like to buy. Pay attention to the characteristics of the robot and how it meets your requirements. Clarity of thinking and the thoughtful choice will help you stand the stir and choose exactly what suits you both in price and quality.
- Ideally, you’d better start preparing for Black Friday from October, because this “quiet” month doesn’t have many sales. Thus, it’ll allow you to see all the real prices of goods. In November, the first seasonal discounts will begin, and you can also check the company’s “honesty.” You can compare the regular price of a vacuum cleaner with a promotional one and understand whether the purchase is so profitable.
- Having chosen the model of robot you are interested in, start tracking the change in its price in various stores. This time, consider both costs in online stores and retail – you have time for this.
- Sign up for the newsletter of those sites and stores that you have chosen. It will help you be the first who will know the exact dates of the sale.
- Remember that the quantity of goods is always limited and the most advantageous offers are bought up in the first hours, and mainly on Friday. Saturday and Sunday are the final days of the sale. Therefore, you should pre-select the product and buy it at the beginning of the action until it is over.
- But if you were unlucky and still failed to buy the desired product during the Black Friday sales period, don’t get discouraged. You will always have the opportunity to try your luck on Cyber Monday. That’s how people call Monday that comes after Black Friday. If Black Friday is associated with the traditional peak of retail sales in ordinary stores, then Cyber Monday means a busy day in the online retail segment and in online stores that offer discounted prices. So keep monitoring sites, and you will catch your luck.
