The wireless provider companies are pre-Spring cleaning a few of their good-but-dated accessories. In the waning days of 2016, one of the best routers of 2013 is getting its price reduced to $59 at T-Mobile which is about $100 cheaper than the next best price online. Verizon is doing a similar thing with the 2015 released Samsung Gear VR Headset dropping the price from $100 to $49.99 - its lowest price to date.
In the case of the Samsung Gear VR deal, we've seen it drop to $49.99 before but not in brand new condition like this. Typically the headset still sells in the $100 range while Amazon is selling refurbished sets for $60 right now.

See discount at checkout
The ASUS RT-AC68U deal at T-Mobile requires you to enter in promo code WIFI40 at checkout to get the full discount. Even the show price of $99 is not bad at all, considering most retailers are $150 and up, but applying the promo gets you an additional $40 off in the second stage of checkout. T-Mobile ran this deal 2 weeks ago, but it sold out within hours. This deal is set to only run through January 5th, or probably sooner if stock is limited.
The Samsung Gear VR Headset deal (model SM-R322) at Verizon is hidden of sorts. Verizon requires you to add the headset to cart before the discount is revealed. There is a moment of uncertainty as you're on Verizon's site with their $99 displayed price, but not much of a hassle to get the deal.
