The Google WiFi is currently on sale over at Amazon, for just $279. This is for a pack of three Google WiFi routers instead of just one. This isn't a huge price drop, but it is $20 off of the regular price of the Google WiFi, and this has never gotten a price drop since it was released last fall.
Google WiFi allows you to create a mesh network in your home and get better WiFi coverage around your home. This is great for those that have a larger home, or may have thick walls in your home and need the signal to penetrate those walls a bit better. Google WiFi is also pretty easy to use, in fact there's an app available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, that you can use for controlling the router, which includes changing the network ID, the password, tracking data usage and even creating a guest network for a set period of time. This basically makes your network smarter, and that's definitely nice to have.
It's also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. If you are not a member of Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial and take advantage of unlimited two-day shipping as well as the many other perks that Amazon Prime includes.
