    Looks like the S3 is going to drop into the very affordable range here real quickly. TiVo is set to launch a $200 rebate on May 27th as part of a Fathers Day campaign.

    I will certainly be adding that second S3 to the home!

    If you thinking about a purchase you may want to hold off a week.

    Thanks TiVo :up:

    Interesting that the rebate form mentions "DVD products" four times.

    1. "New TiVo service* or TiVo PlusTM service* (on DVD products) activation required between 5/27/07 and 7/16/07..."
    2. "Valid only for new, TiVo Series3 Digital Video Recorders (including designated DVD products) purchased from an authorized TiVo retailer."
    3. "To receive rebate, mail completed Rebate Form (available at www.tivo.com/rebate) dated receipt for any eligible TiVo Series3 DVR or DVD product purchase..."
    4. "Limit one rebate per eligible TiVo Series3™ Digital Video Recorder and
    DVD product."

    Is it possible TiVo will soon launch a Series 3 with DVD?

    Would Costco be considered an "authorized retailer"?

    I guess we can't take advantage of MSD pricing with this coupon, since it requires a one-year service plan?

    The exact same wording was on my S2 rebate in December 06, and its on MSD pricing with my other S3 being my primary.

    I think they charge back your credit card for the rebate amount if you cancel with 1 year.

    I wonder if you can transfer current service on a S2 to a new S3 and still qualify for a rebate (I doubt it, but doesn't hurt to ask. :) ). I know that you can transfer the service regardless, but saving $200 would be cool.

    Its only for new activations so it will not work.

    If they mirror what they did on the Series 2, they will do a player only DVD bundle first. Toshiba is the most likely since they are a past partner and use the same BCM chip for playing MPEG2 HD streams.

    Wow. Costco looks like a safe bet for a $399 Series3.

    I wouldn't put it past CircuitCity or Compusa to jack up the retail for those days and give you the $200 rebate off of say $749, pocketing 3/4 of the rebate.

    I don't see why this transfer will disqualify you for the rebate. I interpret the "at least 1 year sub" requirement as you need to have some sub on it - which lifetime definitely is. This is what I plan on doing with my S2 - can we assume they are still honoring transfers or is it a luck of the draw?

    Don't think so. The rebate form is just copied and edited (incompletely) from a previous rebate form.

    MSD also has a minimum of 1-year service commitment. Works fine with the rebate.

    It has to be a new activation.

    I think your mistaken. If you read the rules carefully, it says 1 year sub required for NEW customers & the S3 has to be NEW (not used). Nowhere does it say "not eligible for existing customers". This would be consistent with Tivo's previous rebates (which I have received without problems).

    No. Fine print point 3 says "New Service activation" required. Which is indeed the same as previous rebates, but not what you're saying.
