    It's now $308.99 but if you buy it used - very good mine came brand new with simply and open box but nothing inside was touched. Everything inisde was sealed and new. And it's only $259.40 ($50 off), so quite a deal! Guessing they are simply ones people bought and changed their mind and returned but they were open so they can't sell them new. Mine works great and I paid a quarter of the price off the normal. It's the same link as the first post but when you see the price and add to cart go down a little bit right under protection plan addon and you'll see "Buy Used - Very Good". Mine works perfect and I have a top of the line router which makes my old ac68u look like a wrt54g from over a decade ago!

    Amazon has become the Wild West in terms of consistent pricing.
    These prices have crept up, especially the Used/Open Box.

    06.23.19: New = $324.99, Used = $275.58
    07.01.19 Used = $302.01

    I've just bought it (used) on Ebay auction for GBP 197. Good deal I suppose :) Will see when delivered next week.

    Amazon lowered price: now at $289.00 new. (It was at $290 yesterday so they are playing with pricing.)

    Used at $262.00

    $249 is a really good price for this AX router. Hopefully ASUS fixes their firmware soon.

    If you take a look on craigslist, OfferUp or Letgo I’ve found two RT-AX88Us. Both A1.1 manufactured 2019, $175 for the first and $180 for the 2nd. Both with everything as new including boxes. Took a couple of weeks to look and a trip around town but can’t beat the price.
