    Any guesses at what kind of deals we're going to see on Black Friday / Cyber Monday? Think they'll beat a $738 lifetime plus?

    They are making offers for those discount prices I listed but not for everyone. Again Your Mileage May Vary.

    They already are if you are a lucky enough to get a golden offer which gets you one for $600 instead of the $738 you mentioned.

    This is lower than the normal pricing. I have no idea what the critera is to receive the offer. But TiVo has typically had multiple deals out at the same time where they aren't all offered to everyone.

    Ok, so, assuming I can get an unbelievable :) deal on the Roamio Plus (I work at Best Buy at night), how does one add a discounted lifetime to it? (The $100 off plan).

    Use the code PLSR when activating lifetime online.

    Proof please, all you're giving is hearsay. I've seen no one other than mattack claim that they can get a Plus w/lifetime for $600, and I have a feeling he's talking about a Basic. If those deals are out there, we need to know the criteria to get them otherwise it's just a one-off bone that Tivo's throwing to keep someone happy.

    That is the same deal everyone is getting. Basic= -$25, Plus=-$50, Pro=-$100. You get $100 off of the lifetime if you're an existing customer, but also you get get it as a new customer as well if you use the code PLSR.

    I don't have lifetime and the offer I got was for transferring existing service. Prices were $179/349/499. That means that your deal is the same as mine if you figure in $399 discounted lifetime. The advantage is that you get to keep the old box activated.

    I didn't. I should be getting the Plus any minute now. The UPS guy should be out for delivery! You can always wait for black friday, but from doing some research I didn't see they had any deals last year.

    I don't really recall TiVo ever having anything memorable for a Black Friday sale. And this current promotion is dated through 1/31/14.

    Well, yeah, I got an email today where that was the price. I'm guessing the deal *on the Tivo* had typos in it... and I bet it will have changed when I get home!!

    Oh wait, MAYBE this deal is on my Tivo HD with lifetime? I will get pictures tonight if it's still there....

    Pretty sure he can't provide proof. There have been no legitimate reports around here of anyone getting a Plus w/lifetime for $600

    I'd love to get in on it if there is a way, assuming I could net $400 or so on the sale of my Elite.

    I have no idea what the criteria is for the offer. The deal was not offered to me but someone else. I was offered a deal to transfer my $6.95 rate from my Premiere to a Roamio Basic. Which is all I really wanted. Since whether I had a Premiere for OTA or a Roamio, I was still going to be paying the $6.95 a month. Although using a Roamio is preferred since it's the newest hardware. So when I got the deal I took it.

    When you say "someone else", are you referring to mattack in this thread? He has not yet confirmed that he received an offer of $600 for a Plus w/ Lifetime

    No I am not referring to mattack. Someone else was offered the deal I'm referring too.

    UPDATE:

    I got my Roamio Basic today from MCLogo.com.

    I had some concerns after reading web reviews about people not getting their orders filled. The TiVo was shipped only in its original box, it was not doubled boxed. On the outside of the box it had a Best Buy invoice and shipping label with my address, meaning it was bought and shipped from Best Buy. Not sure what to make of that! What the ?????? Anyway, everything looks factory new and OK.

    I ordered on Friday, they shipped on Monday, UPS delivered on Wednesday, registered with TiVo.com today. No problems.

    Next step is dealing with Comcast and cable cards.
