you pay $284 more with the free tivo compared to the 2 $79 Tivo's with a one year contract
To you it's only $80. Some people are not that fortunate to see it that way and many of the people who don't see it like you spend money on things they probably shouldn't buy.
Businesses don't come up with this type of purchase plans for people who can afford not to use it.
I fully understand your view on not paying interest if you don't have to pay it, but your response to me is a very narrow and naive view of the world.
$80 is a tank of gas. Whether you view that as an alternative or an "oh, well then who cares" thingy......
$80 is in no way a tank of gas, unless you drive an SUV.. (and are thus an evil person..) and if you have a SUV, you have $80 for a Tivo.
If you buy a refurb for $80 then you only pay $14.95/mo for service. The "free" unit costs $19.95/mo. That's $5 extra a month for 2 years, totaling $120 extra paid over those 2 years. Subtract the $80 you would have paid for the box had you bought it outright and you paid an extra $40 or $1.67/mo. That's what I'm calling interest.
I understand why TiVo is offering it, I was simply pointing out that it is foolish for people to take advantage of it.
Here now you can purchase 3 Refurbished TiVo Premieres 45Hr 320GB for $44.95ea
