Best Buy is now offering the Ubiquiti AmpliFi Alien Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router for $279.99 shipped. Marking the very first discount of the year, not to mention an all-around rare markdown in any case, today’s offer amounts to $99 in savings from the usual $379 price tag. This is the second-best price ever and the lowest since Black Friday in 2021 dropped it $1 lower. AmpliFi Alien arrives as a more consumer-friendly alternative to the brand’s UniFi ecosystem, delivering Wi-Fi 6 support alongside a unique design. Its Tri-Band connectivity delivers over 7.6Gb/s of networking throughput and added mesh support means two can be paired together. Though the most unique feature surely has to be the built-in 4.7-inch touchscreen which lets you monitor live network stats, adjust settings, and more. Our UniFi Diary hands-on review offers a more in-depth look at how the 802.11ax router stacks up.
