I bought an extra one too
Probably the same store as cmonroe. I only used his information and a friendly customer service rep.
I was told that it looks like they will be released on or around the 17th.
My local best buy has five in transit, they said they will have them next Tuesday or Thursday so I think a launch early next week makes sense. They won't launch on a Sunday.
My local best buy didn't have any, but did say that they should have them in on Tuesday. He clearly hadn't heard of the Mini so explained to him that it hasn't been released yet. I'm not familiar with Best Buy's computer systems at all...but he then said, "we'll let me check on it another way." That's when he said that it looks like it will be "for sale" on the 17th.
I posted this in another thread.
I ordered two from my local Bestbuy. They said that it should arrive, at the store, by Thursday or Friday. (14th or 15th)
They launched the Elite on a Sunday. I was lucky and got there around opening since the BestBuy only had two or three and sold out almost right away.
How did you order them? None of my local stores say they can order that SKU yet?
I walked in and gave him the SKU. This guy has worked there for a long time. He seems to know what he is doing. Maybe it's the "Luck of the Draw", like when calling Tivo. Also, they did try to sell me the extended warranty. I used Discover, double warranty for free.
I have my printout and my charge pending on my card. When I called the 800 number, she said that she couldn't even order it, because the item wasn't listed on the web site yet???
She did tell me that my in-Store order, was still good for the 15th. (That's March 15th, 2013) just kidding.
What options were there for the extended warranty and what did it cost? I'm guessing since the Mini is a $100 box, if it's like the ROku 3 extended warranty, you can get four years for only $20. (or two years for $14)
He offered the extended warranty but I said no thanks, before he gave a price.
Like I said, I used the Discover card so I get a double warranty.
I have used this feature before. I got a $276 check for a Gps unit, that went bad just before the extended warranty expired.
I couldn't believe it.
When I activated mine tivo offered 2 years for about $30 and 3 years for like $40. I don't remember the exact prices, but it was something like that.
Just visited my local BB in Princeton NJ and they had two on the shelf with the other tivo products. Picked them both up no problem. Guess they are out there.
Just ordered two units from my local Best Buy. They expect them in on Wednesday, March 13th. Could that be the launch day?
Here is the Best Buy extended warranty information. You have 15 days after receipt to elect to purchase.
2 yr - $13.99
4 yr - $19.99
The 4 yr doesn't seem like a bad deal at all. What do you guys think?
Got last one in Bestbuy in Everett, Mass.
That's the same price they charge for a warranty on an $800 XL4 with lifetime. Seems high for a $250 mini.
Ok, so someone finally published the price - $99.99 at Best Buy. How about someone publishing the subscription costs?
$5 a month /yr contract
$149.99 for lifetime.
Warranty was $30/2yr. $40/3yr from TiVo . Assume that retains your lifetime sub if it fails. Best Buy warranty does not if it is replaced.
Ordered two today. Rep told me that for some reason, they could not be shipped to my home, she wasn't sure why it wasn't allowed, but my order would be shipped to store for pickup this Thursday 3/14.
There were no stores in Colorado listing stock, but she said quite a few stores had them in stock now in California.
