Every modem rental fee you pay to your ISP is padding for their bottom line, and a total rip-off for you. Fortunately, you can buy your own modem for a relatively small upfront cost, and knock a few bucks off your monthly bill.
There’s a general consensus that Motorola’s SB6141 is the best modem for most cable internet subscribers, but it usually runs in the $80-$90 range. Today only though, you can score a brand new one from from Newegg’s eBay storefront for $55 shipped, the best price we’ve ever seen for a non-refurb. It’ll pay for itself eventually no matter what it costs, but this is a great opportunity to save a decent chunk of change on this particular model.

Today only, Amazon’s offering several popular Kindle mystery and thriller series novels for just $2 each. I highly recommend the Wayward Pines trilogy (it’s much better than the TV show), but check out the full list for more. [Best-Selling Mystery and Thriller Kindle Ebooks On Sale, $2 Each]
WD’s My Cloud is basically an external hard drive that you can access from anywhere in the world, creating your very own Dropbox, and the 4TB model is all the way down to $140 today. [WD My Cloud Personal 4TB Cloud Storage, $140]
Just because you don’t have a yard doesn’t mean you can’t grow your own food. Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden Harvest is a fully-integrated, soil-free indoor garden that can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil. Nothing beats cooking with food you grew yourself, and it never hurts to add a splash of green into a confined apartment, especially during the winter doldrums.

Everyone should own a good clothing iron, and Rowenta’s Steamium is one of the best. It normally sells for about $130, but today only, Amazon’s offering it for $80, an all-time low by $15. [Rowenta Steamium Steam Iron, $80]
The best DVR for cord cutters is back in stock, complete with discounted lifetime service.
The TiVo Roamio OTA is the TiVo box you know and love, but designed specifically for users of HDTV antennas. The box itself retails for $50, but it typically comes saddled with a $15 monthly service fee. While supplies last though, you can get the box plus lifetime (of the box, not of you) service for a single, upfront $300 fee. That’s a hefty investment, but it’ll pay for itself in 17 months compared to committing to a monthly fee.
Lifetime service for most TiVos costs an exorbitant $500, so you’re actually saving a ton of money by forgoing the cable card here. Unfortunately, they only seem to sell these boxes in limited quantities, so be sure to grab one before it sells out again. [TiVo Roamio OTA HD DVR with Product Lifetime Service, $300]
Amazon has never listed the Fitbit Aria Smart Scale for less than $100, and the last time that happened was early 2014. Today you can grab one on eBay for $95 and no tax for most. The Aria will give you your weight, BMI, and body fat % and of course upload them for syncing to places like MyFitnessPal and HealthKit. [FitBit Aria, $95]
Note: It was $90 yesterday from the same seller, but $95 is still a great price.
Update: Today’s your last chance!
In celebration of Mozart In The Jungle’s Golden Globes victories, Amazon has made a year of Prime $73 through the weekend for new members.
In the past, there have been loopholes for existing members to take advantage of this deal, but we don’t think that will be case this time around. That said, if you still haven’t signed up for Prime, this is a fantastic opportunity.
Need convincing? Here are all of the benefits you get with Prime, including free two day shipping, access to thousands of streaming TV shows and movies, and (as of earlier this week) 20% off all video game preorders and new releases. It really is the best deal in tech. [Amazon Prime]
With Amazon’s announcement of their latest Prime benefit: a 20% discount on video game preorders that carries through their first week of release, we’ve resurrected our game release calendar. Check it out.
