Sometimes… letting the robots in is a good thing. Though your pets might vote a hard “NO” on this intruder, an automated vacuum could be the helper you never knew you needed. We know you have questions (read on!), but really, when you hear “hands-off cleaning”, don’t you want to know more? So, why wait, find your favorite here and pay for it over time.

Perks of Living with a Robotic Vacuum

When it comes to these determined little cleaners, it’s easy to get obsessed. Advances in technology have truly delivered set-it-and-forget-it confidence with today’s robot vacuums.

Go! Live Your Life

  • At home? They work independently – you do whatever you want.
  • Away? Many have apps for scheduling cleanings with your smartphone!

Alexa, Clean My Floors

  • Boss it around: some models can pair with your smart speakers.
  • One command and Google Home or Amazon Alexa gets it done.

Pet Lovers these Things

  • Floof factor a daily hassle? Robot vacuum to the rescue.
  • Keep things less hairy in between deeper cleanings. Big difference.

Did You Say Self-Cleaning?

  • Good robot! Advanced models can even empty their own dustbins.
  • Go home now. Many robot vacuums are self-docking, too.

Small but Mighty

  • Goes where canisters can’t! Compact enough to often fit under furniture.
  • Your back approves. No more moving everything you own just to vacuum!

They Know Their Way Around

  • Obstacles avoided! Auto-sense navigation provides a more efficient clean.
  • Keep-out zones? Yep, some let you tell ’em where they can and can’t go!

Ask Yourself This…

When choosing your robot vacuum, these questions help you fine-tune what’s important for your lifestyle and home.

  • How well can it maneuver itself from carpets to rugs to hard floor surfaces?
  • If you have a larger home, how long is battery life and is a second vacuum needed?
  • Do you want a remote, smart speaker activation, auto-sense navigation, or
    smartphone app?
  • Do you want it to be able to self-empty?

1 If you are approved for a lease this is your estimated weekly lease payment. On this site, we use the terms "lease," "lease agreement," "rental-purchase agreement" and "agreement" the same. (We usually use the term "Lease.") Under your Lease, you can: (a) weekly, biweekly, or monthly payments or exercise an Early Purchase Option pursuant to your payment offer (not applicable in FL, NC and TX) and some restrictions may apply in CA to acquire Ownership of the rented goods or (b) rent the goods for at least the initial term and then end the lease when you want by making all required payments and returning the goods. In NC, the final payment required to purchase the rented goods will be an amount greater than 10% of the Cash Price. If you are approved for a loan the weekly payment is only an estimate. Please review the actual terms in your loan agreement if you are approved. Your rates, terms and payment schedule are subject to approval pursuant to underwriting criteria and may vary by state. FlexShopper provides offers for Lease to Own Options, however, we do not make any loan or credit decisions and are not representative, brokers or agents for any Lenders.

3 If approved by FlexShopper customers that reside in Florida, Texas and North Carolina, the Cash Price is the price we charge for a cash sale of the item. The Cash Price may be higher than the cash price you would pay if you were to purchase the item directly from the merchant shipping the merchandise on FlexShopper and/or affiliates behalf. If approved by another payment option provider the cash price is the invoice amount of the item excluding taxes, shipping and other fees.

5 Good credit is not necessary but not everyone with bad credit is approved. Our goal is to help consumers with not so perfect credit get goods they want through a payment offer that works for you.

7 An initial payment or security deposit and/or payment may be required before fulfillment.

8 If approved by FlexShopper customers that reside in Florida, Texas and North Carolina you will own the item(s) and not have to pay any additional amount if you pay the full Cash Price (the Cash Price is the price we charge for a cash sale of the item (or $50 more than the price the merchant you select charges) plus sales taxes and may be higher than the price you would pay if you were to purchase the item(s) directly; if you rent multiple items at the same time, we reduce the Cash Price (and increase the Cost of Rental) by $50 for the second and each subsequent item you rent, which makes it less expensive to purchase the items before the end of the term of the Lease). After 90 days, you also have an Early Purchase Option that allows you to own your item(s) for less. Simply refer to the table in your Lease to look up the Early Purchase Option amount after each payment date. If approved by another payment option provider please refer to the terms and conditions of your agreement.

9 All lease/loan decisions and rates and terms are subject to approval pursuant to underwriting criteria related to the applicant’s credit quality. Rates and terms may also vary depending upon the state where you reside.
