    So I went on and asked the seller some questions, got replies and placed my order.

    First off, the replies were almost immediate. VERY good communication. Secondly I got my code less than 5 minutes after I made my payment. And Lastly I went on Tivo.com, placed my order and, frankly I'm ashamed to post here how much I saved, but I can say this:

    A few days ago I was on Tivo.com before seeing this and calculated what I wanted. If it hadn't been for this offer I would have either:

    a. Paid several hundred more for what I bought or
    b. Not gotten everything I wanted.

    This is the REAL DEAL...I keep looking at the email from Tivo to verify all the totals, but the numbers are still the same :D

    I will continue to re-open that email a few more times just to make sure ;) but I have a feeling it's not going to change.


    Now, as for the lifetime service I will have to wait till it arrives, I set it up and start using it to make sure that part works, but I bought it straight through Tivo.com so at this point there is no reason to believe they wouldn't work.

    I will update as I get it and set it up.

    Mike

    Codes are usually good for one transaction, either monthly or Lifetime bundled w/hardware purchase. So if you did not use the code to purchase Lifetime at the time the code was used. I don't think you get to change to Lifetime at a discounted price later within 30 days. You better call TiVo and change it now if that is your intention to get Lifetime.

    I should have been more specific. When I placed the order though Tivo.com I did so with Lifetime added onto the device. What I meant to say was that I can't judge the "service" until I actually start using it...the price discounts on the Tivo site are REAL...I really did get the discount.

    Buy from spherular above- great deal and I saved $500 - best deal ever on e-mail and the communication and code delivery is immediate and he is very knowledgeable. Don't low ball him with an offer - one code left and one would be a fool to pass up this more than fair deal.

    Why the different prices? $49, $59 10 Day, and $125

    And what is the 10 Day vs the others?

    I assume spherular2 is also you, correct me if I am wrong and someone else is mirroring you.

    I did point an someone to your listings and they purchased a Roamio Pro and Mini, they were very happy. :up::up::up:

    The price difference is down to a number of reasons, but the offering is the same. Spherular2 is cheaper as its a new account that I'm trying to establish. The other two are to remind people that the starting price won't always be $49. The quantity available fluctuates so as supply changes, then price has to change too. Some people will save hundreds with a big order, others are just looking for only one product. The ten day price will change at some point.

    Hope that helps

    I just want to post my extremely positive experience dealing with a TiVo code purchased from Spherular recently.

    I recently purchased a code from Spherular2 (who is the same as Spherular), and the code was legitimate, and saved me hundreds over a direct purchase of my Roamio Pro and Mini, both with lifetime directly from TiVo.

    This is the real deal, nothing complicated in the transaction with TiVo. Just input the coupon code provided via email from Spherular which was received within minutes of payment confirmation, and you're done.

    Units were activated with lifetime prior to shipping, so upon receipt at home, it was just a matter of inserting the cablecard and initiating Guided Setup. I have Fios and have no premium channels, so pairing was not required. Couldn't have been an easier experience overall.

    If any of you are on the fence regarding purchasing codes from Spherular, I hope this endorsement helps your decision making.

    Long...
    I did want to add my own comment on spherular here; I just bought a discount code from him so I could buy a Roamio Pro and lifetime plus some remotes for my parents and it was a very simple, smooth transaction all around. The discount code arrived about 10 minutes after my purchase, and I just finished placing the order for the equipment online with TiVo. Since I noted the above comment reminding me how they'd arrive activated on the account, I logged in under my mom's account to place the order using my credit card and having it all shipped to them. So if all goes well I'll be installing it for them next weekend, in addition to a couple TiVo Mini's I acquired from Solid Signal recently, and I can retire the old TiVo HD unit they have.

    It let me order 6 Slider Pro remotes total at the discounted price; not sure if that'll be adjusted before it ships or not, but it's worth noting. I was prepared to be limited to 2 (Roamio version, no adapter) at the discounted price, and then added the other 4 (Premiere/Mini version w/adapter) expecting them to be normal price, but they got discounted too.

    Just had a super smooth transaction with Spherular. He was very responsive and answered several questions I had on TiVos in general before the sale of the code. I received the code very quickly from him and used it with no issues!

    Purchased from him yesterday and code worked perfectly. I even had a few questions for him and he really went above and beyond to help out. Very impressed and highly recommended.

    Just wanted to add another account here as I was skeptical - I purchased on Thursday and had the code within 15 minutes. On Friday I went to Tivo's site and purchased and saved quite a bit. Thanks Spherular

    I just saw his listings on eBay and was wondering if they were legit. I'm new to TiVo so was glad to see this post in this forum. Now I only need to decide what I want to buy!

    You posted asking that question when there was a bunch that gave him credit for how easy it was in the same post. Also just look at his feedback on ebay. Last time I looked not one person wrote negative about him.

    Sorry about that. What I meant was that I saw his eBay listing and was considering his service. I looked at his positive reviews so I was not really worried. I then found this post and saw that the comments here also backed up his positive reviews so I then really felt good about getting his service.

    My Father and I both got codes from Spherular and he saved us a bundle. I was going to get a plus and upgrade the HD to a 3TB but it was cheaper to just get the pro and I don't have to take it apart! Plus, TiVo can't fuss about me tampering with the unit.

    This is the best way to buy a plus or pro. Plus he's great to deal with.
