iRobot Roomba Giveaway!

Well it’s almost 2015 and I don’t have a hoverboard (as promised by movies from the 80’s) but I have the next best thing: a robot that cleans for me. Today, I’m partnering with iRobot to give one away! We keep our Roomba in our studio and after we are done crafting for the day we pick up the big pieces of cardboard and then the Roomba gets to work. I love coming into the studio every morning to a clean floor. The Roomba is super advanced, it gets to all those hard-to-reach places and passes over every section of the floor until it’s totally clean. I love that I can multitask: the Roomba keeps cleaning while I run errands. iRobot also sells robots that can scrub & mop your floors, clean out your gutters, and even clean your pool. To see the Roomba in action, click here! Now I just need a robot that can bring me a root beer float every night and I’m all set.

(PS – Make sure you click through below for your chance to win a brand new Roomba 880 – worth $700!)

    Oooh! Between our four furry family members and my penchant for confetti and glitter, we are in desperate need of our own robot friend! I love that it can detect soft barriers and STILL get under the couch for some deep cleaning, although I’m a little embarrassed by what it might find under there… Fingers crossed we win and I never have to find out! :)

    Room to room navigation, AND scheduling! It would be an awesome addition to our household, to keep the dog hair and confetti at bay!

    I love, love, love the convenience factor, that it can be set, clean the floor and returns to its base all on its own. I am horrible about sweeping and vacuuming, I would love the ability to sit and watch roomba work!

    I love the adjustable cleaning head! This would be perfect for my rug-covered wood floors upon which four dogs and a toddler run around!!

    My boyfriend and I are planning on splitting this for a Christmas gift to ourselves! We recently ripped up all our carpet to find some great hardwood floors. But those floors show a lot of puppy hair tumble weeds! We would love to win it and use the scheduled cleaning to see how our dog interacts with this little robot! :) Might have to set up a puppy cam to watch! Happy Holidays!

    LOVE that iRoomba has a “DirectDetect” feature, so it knows where there is more dirt, and takes the extra pass + time to get the job done. In dealing with paper, and tiny fibers, I love that my cleaning buddy will be able to get the scraps that maybe I don’t even see!

    I would love to have an iRoomba in my studio to make clean up just a little bit easier, and less time consuming for me. Love this opportunity, and it would totally help as I take on moving my business into a new space!

    The Hepa Filter would help so much with my terrible allergies.

  8. Nicole

    December 3, 2014

    I love the HEPA filtration system. With a family full of allergy sufferers, this would really come in handy. Plus, it would save me the time of vacuuming and sweeping our hardwood floors multiple times per week!

    I love to have the scheduled sparkliness of my floor!!

  10. emily

    December 3, 2014

    definitely being able to schedule cleaning time.

  11. Greta

    December 3, 2014

    Aside from the amazing convenience and ability to help keep my hardwood floors shiny, who doesn’t want their own DJ Roomba? Tom Haverford would be so proud!

  12. Shannon

    December 3, 2014

    I’ve wanted a Roomba for years and would love to win this giveaway! My favorite feature of the iRobot Roomba 880 is that it’s easy to use and almost maintenance free. The preset option is great too.

  13. nina

    December 3, 2014

    Oooh I love the idea of self docking / charging.

    And not going to lie, of course I would use it for cleaning but I would probably also use it for DJ Roomba (Parks & Rec).

  14. Michelle

    December 3, 2014

    Ah! I’ve been dreaming of a Roomba! I love that you can schedule cleaning times, and I love the edge cleaning! I can’t believe how dirty the edges of my wood floors can get.

    Thank you for the chance at such a fun giveaway!

  15. Svetlana

    December 3, 2014

    I want one so bad! I think the most impressive part to me is that it docks itself when it’s ready to recharge. I had no idea!

  16. Melissa

    December 3, 2014

    I used to have a 400-series of this robot and LOVED it. I’m especially excited to hear they’ve added the “brushless extractors” so getting up all the cat hair in my house will be that much better.

  17. deanna

    December 3, 2014

    I love, love the tangle free extractors – there’s a lot of long hair in this house that makes vacuuming kind of a pain.

  18. Rachel

    December 3, 2014

    I like the room to room navigation feature. It would be fantastic to schedule cleanings and use it to get under beds and furniture!

  19. A

    Better living through robots.

  20. Sioux Madden

    December 3, 2014

    i think the best feature would be the watch-the-cats-completely-freak-as-roomba-roombas-around perk.

    that, and hands free vacuuming. i mean, c’mon!

  21. Laura McAllister

    December 3, 2014

    Scheduling. I would love to win to help with dog hair!

  22. Jamie

    December 3, 2014

    I love the idea of a robot that cleans up my messes for me!? Pretty sure the cats would love it too.

  23. Ashley Kolb

    December 3, 2014

    I love that it’s virtually maintenance free – with our busy lifestyle and super sheddy lab, we need all the help we can get keeping the house tidy!

  24. Kristin

    December 3, 2014

    ohhhh- cleaning the floors while I’m not even home! Yes please!

  25. Laura

    December 3, 2014

    I love the HEPA filter, which would help with allergies! It would be so great to have, if only to cut down on the amount of time we spend vacuuming! Plus, I tend to be a messy cook.

  26. Tara

    December 3, 2014

    I love these things. My brother had one and I was so jealous! I love that you can schedule it now!

  27. Lacey

    December 3, 2014

    I love the room-to-room feature of this roomba! I have a cat that leaves little poofs of hair everywhere in the house! If the roomba can pick up that fur in all the rooms, my life will be so much easier. Can it pick up hairballs too? I would just die happy… 😉

  28. Helen

    December 3, 2014

    We just adopted a new Eskimo dog name Ray and this will help me keep our house clean of white furs and the HEPA filters would help with all our different allergies. It’s definitely one of the best giveaways because it keeps giving year after year! Thanks!

  29. Julia

    December 3, 2014

    My favorite feature is the ability to go from wood floors to carpets or rugs, how brilliant is that??!!

  30. Tiffany

    December 3, 2014

    My current vacuum is a $15 Dirt Devil that doesn’t really work on the cat hair in my carpet. So anything that will actually clean the carpets will be a wonderful step up!

  31. Sarah

    December 3, 2014

    I like that cleaning times can be scheduled. The idea that I could leave the house and return in the evening to clean floors is very attractive.

  32. jen

    December 3, 2014

    i would love to win one. i have a newborn and just dont have the time/energy to clean these days!

  33. Susan M.

    December 3, 2014

    Holy moly… It charges itself! So easy and convenient. I would love to win the Roomba 880 to pick up all the dog hair that my pup leaves around the house (and the dust bunnies under the couch, too!)

  34. Isabel

    December 3, 2014

    I love that it can transition from carpet to hardwood without manual intervention like a regular vacuum. At the end of the day, I’m not always in the mood to break out the vacuum, so having the freedom to pre-schedule a cleaning when we’re away at work is amazing.

  35. Rebecca

    With three fur babies and one real toddler, my home is begging for a robot that I can program!

  36. Chelsey Hancock

    December 3, 2014

    My husband REALLY wants a Roomba – he “subtly” mentions it all the time! I obviously would love one too, but it would be so fun to surprise him with it!! I love that it returns to charge on its own (I always forget to plug things back in…) and that the 800 model has an HEPA filter!

  37. Kelly

    December 3, 2014

    THE FACT THAT IT IS A ROBOT! and also the HEPA filter for my 5 pets.

  38. Kristin

    December 3, 2014

    Between my cat and my wool shag rug from Ikea, the Tangle-Free AeroForce™ Extractors is looking super awesome! My current vacuum barely has any suction left and gets tangled all the time. I am constantly having to take it apart myself for repairs!

  39. Jessica

    December 3, 2014

    As a college student, having a roomba would be SO NICE! Frees up cleaning time to study, eh? Room-to-room feature looks pretty handy.

    It is sooo hard to pick one feature, every single one is a required feature for my home – the self-adjusting to change from rug to hardwood, the edge-cleaning, self-charging and scheduling is especially needed so we can have it run when the kids are not underfoot.

    With a glitter and craft loving almost 5-yr old and a 11 month baby that wants to eat every scrap found on the floor, we neeeeed one of these!

  41. Kristen F.

    December 3, 2014

    The scheduling feature is what I love most — I’d love to just set it and forget about it!

  42. Dara

    December 3, 2014

    Tangle free brush extractors. Less time cleaning.

  43. Heather Emaus

    December 3, 2014

    Love that it would work with my hardwood floors and the rugs on top, which is more than I can say for my current vacuum that I have to push like a chump living in the 1990s.

  44. Cathy

    December 3, 2014

    I love the larger bin and pet-focus of the newest Roomba. While gorgeous, my long-haired feline-roommate is a fur-monster.

  45. marymary

    December 3, 2014

    Just yesterday I was trying to decide what to do with my old Roomba with the defunct battery and broken virtual wall unit. Now I see that what I should do is win a new one! :-) I would love the full bin indicator and the improved cleaning capacity of this one!

  46. Joanna

    December 3, 2014

    I love that it goes all on its own.. no need for me to bring it around to every part of the floor!

  47. Caila

    December 3, 2014

    I would love the scheduling feature and updated performance cleaning system! Between my 9-5, nonprofit work and freelance by the time I get home the last thing on my mind is cleaning up after my 2 cats.

  48. Breanne

    December 3, 2014

    Super awesome! We have been thinking about getting one of these!

  49. Bethany W

    December 3, 2014

    The fact that it can go from different floor types without needing any sort of adjusting is fantastic! Our home isn’t large, but I still have trouble finding time to give it a good scheduled sweeping, this would help so much!

  50. Hannah

    December 3, 2014

    You mean my hair won’t tangle and snarl in those new rollers?! That would be AMAZING.
