*CLOSED* Grateful Giveaway #6: Cisco Linksys Router

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

To kick off the summer, I’m excited to once again be part of the Grateful Giveaways group, bringing you 9 awesome giveaways for more summer fun. Watch for a new one every hour on the hour!

Next up is a brand new top-of-the-line router from Cisco to help you better manage your connectivity!  We’ve used these for years and I’ve never been anything but pleased with how ours performs!

The Linksys EA4500 App-Enabled Maximum Performance Dual-Band N900 Router with Gigabit is part of the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers line and will be app-enabled starting June 26th (with an automatic software update to the units that are purchased before that date).

This router does more than connect you to the internet; it also gives you access to your home network and connected home devices anytime, anywhere – from your smartphone, tablet or browser.

With the coming new apps, you could turn on the air conditioner before getting home from work, get an automatic reminder on your smartphone when the refrigerator filter needs replacing, or remotely turn off the kids’ XBox while out to dinner.

The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers offer exceptional wireless performance and maximum throughput, as well as support for Cisco Connect Cloud, the next generation of Cisco Connect software, which provides simple anytime, anywhere management of multiple home networks.

One lucky Penny Pinchin’ Mom reader will win a Linksys EA4500 App Enabled N900 Dual-Band Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB!
