Bought this at full price last month. Best router I've ever used. Faster than my previous router and has great range. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Too bad I overpaid.

It's not much different. The there are not many devices that make use of the higher bands in X6S3200.

The processing power is same as 3200.

You are right. This is for the X6S AC3000. Other retail has the X6S AC4000 which does have higher mbps, but also cost twice as much at $300.

Costco X6S AC3000 Specs

Band 1: 450 Mbps @2.4GHz
Band 2: 1300 Mbps @5GHz
Band 3: 1300 Mbps @5GHz

Amazon X6S AC4000 Specs

Band 1: 750 Mbps @2.4Ghz
Band 2: 1625 Mbps @5Ghz
Band 3: 1625 Mbps @5Ghz

Good luck, in talking with Costco staff, they said they specifically will not price match BF deals. I casually asked while I was shopping the other day with your idea in mind. They said it's to discourage individuals doing exactly what you did, to prevent possibly selling out prior to the actual sale.

From Costco:
Hello Sophia. We can certainly provide a price match.

Costco always price matches.

No they don't. Costco asks manufacturers to produce identical products with the slightest variant in model #, in order to claim it's not the same item. For instance, it's Roku Streaming Stick 3800R at every other store. At Costco, it's Roku Streaming Stick 3801R.
