How much did you pay for your i7+?

I could have sworn when the i7+ came out it was something like $950. Now, on iRobot's website, it's listed for nearly $1200. Does anyone know the reason behind this? It also looks like the clean base increased in price to $350 for the stand alone product.

What's with these crazy price hikes?

I read it has to do with new tariffs on certain parts imported from China.

Hopefully Trump has to pay the new 10% increase on all the materials he imports from China to build his hotels.

I'd really like to have the I7+ but I may wait a year for prices to come down. Seems like if you buy previous models they get way cheaper. I'm tempted to pick up a 960 because the prices are pretty good right now. But it's the I7 I mostly want. Decisions, Decisions, and 1st world problems I guess.

Every new edition of something can be somewhat better than its predecessor, but remember that "better" is relative and the predecessor was the "best thing since sliced bread" a few short months ago. :D

Thank you for this comment! After debating for a long time we decided to order a 960. The price on them right now is pretty good. I really wanted the self emptying bot but 1100 is just way to much to spend on a vacuum. I'll pick one up in a couple years when they come way down. The 960 will give me smarter nav so I can hide the charger. The only thing I'm missing is self emptying and the ability to clean just one room. The latter is something I don't need as cleaning the entire house is better for us anyways. We'll see how it goes.


Also just for others info, I read on Reddit that if you call iRobot and ask for a discount on the I7+ that they will offer 150 off the price. I sent them an email about this and was denied. But they did offer to send a free maintenance kit with brushes and filters. Just in case that sweetens the deal for anyone.
