As a comparison, Amazon sells this for over $400 with good reviews, so this seems like a great price!

Check out what other Amazon reviewers have said about this vacuum…

This product is great. I purchased it 2 months ago and it works good for now. Compare with roomba 530, it provides much more features and 3 lightrooms. That’s very important because I don’t need to config anything once I setup the system.

This Roomba replaced a 560 model. This 581 is much better. It cleans one room and then moves on to the next using the lighthouses. It comes with extra brushes and three virtual wall/lighthouses. The sensors must be better as it cleans for about an hour and still finds its home base and docks automatically whereas the 560 would just run out of gas and stop in a room where I would have to search to find it. I love this thing we call Goofy. It goes under all my kitchen cabinets without getting stuck and cleans my multiple rugs over my wood floor.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
