The reason why Black Friday sales have become so loved by millions of people is the fact that it provides us with excellent discounts for all categories of products. No matter whether you want a smartphone or a new set of bath towels – they will be yours with great benefit.
Luckily, the owners of pools can also participate in this world-wide festival of discounts. Here, we collected the most expected Polaris Black Friday deals. The brand is known for its high-quality, efficient pool cleaners, the only minus of which is costliness.
So, why not to use the Black Friday 2023 to save up to several hundreds of dollars? Let’s take a look at what we can get on November 24th-27th.
In the coming November, we’re going to see the same Polaris 280, 360, and 380 cleaners on sale. In the addition, this year the list of Polaris Black Friday products will be extended significantly by the 3900 Sport pressure side cleaner and many Polaris sport robotic cleaners from F series, 9560iQ models, 8050 Sport, P825, and Polaris NEO models. So in total, you can choose out of eight models of robotic cleaners!
Best Offers of Last Year
As Polaris extended the list of models this year, we can’t state the discount price for new models, but we have a history of former offers and price drops.
Most of all, customers preferred budget cleaners such as Polaris 280 and 360. The manufacturer regularly changes their prices, so they float from year to year. Last November, you could see several Polaris 280 Black Friday and Polaris 360 Black Friday deals on Amazon. The best sellers asked $476 and $429, respectively.
Surely, the sales couldn’t do without the improved Polaris 380. However, better performance and power cost more. While in 2020, the 280 and the 360 devices were sold for around $500, Polaris 380 cost $699. During the Thanksgiving sales, customers got the model at a $70 discount.
In general, the brand cuts the prices by 15%-25%. The drop looks insignificant till you see it in real money. Due to the high costs of the Polaris products, 15% make an admirable economy.
The model raised in price since the last year, costing about $550-$600 on Amazon. The regular price is floating, but this fall, we have all the chances to catch it at a $100 discount or more. The reason is the growing popularity of its more powerful modifications.
Polaris 280 pressure side pool cleaner works in all in-ground pools and processes floors and walls but misses steps. Thanks to 2 jets, it traps most dirt and rarely tangles or gets stuck.
The model provides a 31ft hose to cover even large reservoirs and is compatible with TailSweep PRO.
Polaris Vac-Sweep 360 shares the majority of its features with the 280 cleaner. It is applicable in all in-ground pools, covers all pool elements except for steps, uses the same 31ft hose, and is compatible with TailSweep PRO.
However, this modification can boast of three propulsion jets and doesn’t require a separate booster pump.
Now, the model costs $580, and the price may rise to $500. Last year’s experience showed not too impressive drops, so we hope for $50-$60 off.
Polaris 380 Black Friday deal is one of the most expected by customers. Though the model is the most expensive among these three devices, the difference is not so dramatic, while the functionality collects all the best moments.
The current price reaches $740. The discounted price we hope for is $600. There is no official information yet, but we’re going to check the deals to provide you with updates.
Powered by triple jets that provide greater power and faster cleaning, the vacuum works in all in-ground pools and climbs all elements, including challenging steps and protrusions. Also, it is the only cleaner equipped with the All-Wheel Belt drive mechanism. The system eliminates all possibilities of getting stuck.
The 3900 Sport has participated in Polaris Black Friday sales before, though without much success. Frankly speaking, the vacuum is very expensive, costing $950-$990 on a regular basis. The previously discussed cleaners perform almost the same quality cleaning but for twice less price.
Nevertheless, the 3900 Sport series features a couple of characteristics worth buying. Thus, the model processes every inch and awkward place of the pool, picks up all debris with the most powerful triple Polaris propulsion jets, provides ultimate sweeping action, and won’t get stuck thanks to the 50% more torque with the all-wheel PosiDrive system. It also uses the largest 5L bag with 40 GPM of additional pool filtration.
We absolutely recommend this cleaner to all in-ground pools if purchased at a discount. Last year, the brand cut the price by $200. This time, we are waiting for similar generosity.
Finally, we came to the Polaris robotic pool cleaners – the F9350, F9450, and F9550 Sport. While the pressure side generation is the most demanded option for relatively affordable money, these devices cost from $990 to $1300. Even the basic F9350 modification belongs to the luxury price niche, that’s why Black Friday discounts are so desired here.
All vacs use the same technologies in their core, but there are some differences worth mentioning. Depending on the model chosen, you’ll get from 2 to 4 wheels, various means of remote controlling and programming. Look for more information in our PolarisF9350/F9450/F9550 Sport reviews.
Among common characteristics, we note the ActivMotion Sensor Technology for unmatchable navigation even in the largest pools up to 60″, Vortex Vacuum Technology and water propulsion system for picking up larger debris while maintaining maximum suction, Aqua-Trax tires for all pool surfaces, and unique programmable timer.
Judging by last year, the prices should drop by 10%-15%. However, you may be able to save up to $300 on the more expensive F9550.
Here are the most long-awaited deals on Polaris pool cleaners. However, we also recommend you to use the Black Friday to get numerous Polaris accessories at great discounts. Pay attention to replacement bags, filters, tires, and other things so necessary for daily use of your vac.

Among sport robotic cleaners, two upgraded models should be mentioned separately- 9650iQ / P965iQ. The price for these two models is even higher and without discounts is around 1400$, so it does make sense to buy it on Black Friday on sale.
These two models are designed for automatic work in in-ground water pools up to 60 ft and on all surfaces.
These four-wheel models can be controlled with the iAquaLink app for the premium cleaning performance of floors, walls, and waterlines. They only have three modes – floor, floor/wall, and waterline. In the mobile application, you can set cleaning schedules, see the level of dirt in the canister (the extra-large easy clean filter canister is equipped with a dirty water indicator), control the robot in real-time, and use the easy lift removal system. In addition to the application, robots are controlled by Alexa and a standard control box (included).
All other features are the same as previously described models – 70 feet tangle-reducing swivel cable, easy-assembled caddy for storage, and two-blade brushes. As with other Robot sports models, both models utilize Vortex Vacuum technology with 4 WD front wheels for powerful performance even in tight corners.
The only difference between 9650iQ and P965iQ is the color. The 9650iQ has a blue body with grey blades and wheels, while the P965iQ has a white body with grey blades and wheels. The dimensions for both models are also the same – 22 x 22 x 22 inches (LxWxH) and 41 pounds.
Polaris 8050 Sport/ P825 / Neo Robotic Cleaners
These three models look the same and significantly differ from 9350/39450/9550/9650 models by their design with a big handle on top and an enlarged intake area for larger debris. These robots have front and rear two rubber brushes and caterpillar rubber wheels (tracks); they are designed for all in-ground pool surfaces and can clean walls, steps, and floors of a 40’ swimming pool. They have two cleaning modes – floor or floor/wall.
They are equipped with Cyclonic Vacuum technology and Surface Control System for optimal cleaning and climbing without losing strong suction and capture all debris throughout the whole cleaning cycle. Surface Control System allows you to choose from 5 levels to determine how rough or smooth your pool’s surface is. Robots have dual-cleaning and on-demand cycles starting with one touch from the control box and lasting no longer than 1.5 -2 hours. In addition, the 4L filter canister has a transparent lid (no indicator is installed inside) to track when you need to empty it using Push-and-Go technology. With this technology, you need only shake the canister and spray it with fresh water.
In the box, the caddy for easy transportation is also included. Unfortunately, the tangle-reducing swivel cable is not included in the package, only 50 feet floating cable. Also, there is no option for Alexa or mobile application control, including scheduling functions; the control is executed from the standard control box. P825 dimensions are 22 x 22 x 18.5 inches and 40 pounds. 8050 Sport and NEO models are slightly smaller – 16.5 x 16.25 x 10.75 inches and 37.5 pounds for 8050 and 32.2 pounds for NEO.
The difference between models is the color and availability of some features.
- Polaris 8050 Sport and NEO have an easy lift removal feature, while P825 hasn’t.
- Also, NEO doesn’t have a transparent lid on top of the robot, and the transport caddy is not included in the package.
- Polaris 8050 Sport has a grey & blue body, Polaris P825 has white, and NEO has a grey one with blue brushes.
The regular price of these models is between 800-900$; on Black Friday, at least a 10-15% discount is expected. So, considering these middle-price robots for your swimming pool maintenance is worth doing.
