Most Prime Day deals offer savings that last a day, but we found a killer Prime Day deal with savings that will last a lifetime. And as an added bonus, those savings will come at the expense of your cable company! After all, the only thing people love more than saving money is saving money while costing their cable company money at the same time.

Amazon is running terrific Prime Day deals on two of the best cable modems money can buy. Why is your cable company going to hate it so much when you buy a new cable modem? Well you might not even realize this, but your cable company is charging you either $8 or $10 each and every month to use their modem. That’s right… you’re paying them a monthly fee to use a box that allows you to pay them a monthly fee for internet service. Stop the madness immediately by buying your own cable modem and then returning the rented box to your ISP. Once you do, you’ll see up to $120 a year chopped off your cable bill.

The ASUS DOCSIS 3.0 High Speed 16 x 4 Cable Modem is on sale for just $49.99 on Prime Day, and it supports speeds of up to 600Mbps. If you need even more speed, snag the NETGEAR Gigabit Cable Modem (32×8) DOCSIS 3.1 for $135.99 and you’ll get speeds up to a gigabit. Both of these modems are compatible with every major cable ISP, including Comcast, Spectrum, Charter, and many more.
