Grab Netgear's R6700 Nighthawk router on sale at nearly 20% off

The Netgear Nighthawk R6700 dual-band Wi-Fi router drops to $72.95 on Amazon when you clip the $15 coupon on its product page. This router has been selling for around $90 since last year and was going for as much as $120 before that. Late last month, we saw it drop to $70 as a Lightning deal at Amazon that was only available for a few hours, and while today's deal isn't quite as low, it's still one of its best ever.

Pair this router with something like the $45 Netgear CM500 cable modem to ditch your ISP's rental fees. Most ISPs charge a few bucks a month for the cable modem installed in your home originally, so you can recoup the costs you're paying today after just a few months.

The Nighthawk R6700 is an awesome router with more than 24,500 user reviews giving it 4.1 stars. It has high-powered antennas and has technology that boosts range, speed, and performance. It works well in homes with a lot of Wi-Fi devices, which most homes are these days.
