    Has anyone been able to get Best Buy to match the TiVo $40 off on the Plus coupon code that is part of their holiday sweepstakes?

    I just bought a new TV and was going to wait on the Roamio purchase, but if I can get $40 off, making it $359 plus the $50 BB Gift Card, that would make the Plus $309. On top of that, I have $35 in reward certificates from my recent TV purchase, which would make my cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $274. Not too bad

    I'm confused. I guess I thought that the $50 gift card was only for the Basic. Is it on all the models?

    the $50 gift card is available for all three Roamios on best buy.com. I just picked up the basic with the Amazon.com $149 price match and the $50 gift card about an hour ago. I just showed the Amazon price on my phone and they matched it no problem. The Amazon price for the Plus & Pro are at or close to normal retail so there isn't quite the kicker with the gift card that the basic offers.

    According to the Best Buy website, the $50 gift card is available on all Roamio models.

    Ok, I guess I must had been mixing it up with the $50 off price match from Amazon, which was only the Basic. :)

    Ultimate Home Theater (never heard of it) has the Roamio Plus for $359. If Amazon matches it then with gift card that comes out to $309 + taxes.

    Just got an Email from TiVo for existing customers advertising a Roamio upgrade offer for $174, Roamio Plus for $349, and the Roamio Pro for $499.

    ($25,$50,$100 off respectively)

    If I can get Best Buy to match that, that would be great. Too tempting...

    That would be awesome! If they match that and give you the $50 gift card too you'd end up with a Roamio Pro for $450!

    Yeah, that's why I am wondering how long the gift card deal is. :)

    I got the email from TiVo several weeks ago... it expires 1/31/14. So, when that Amazon.com deal for the $399 Pro fell through, I figured I'd go back to my original plan of trying to get BB to price match my email offer, but I was waiting until we get our birthday and Christmas gift cards. We have some relatives that always give us a BB one or two.

    For those of you with American Express cards, check your offer list. I have one for spend $250 at Best Buy, get a $25 statement credit. Note that you need to activate the offer before using it.

    I didn't get an email from TiVo :(

    Can someone forward theirs to me? PM me for the address if you can.

    Thanks!

    For those of you with Best Buy credit cards don't forget to take advantage of your 5% off when you choose the option at checkout.

    The email offer is tied to a service number... at least mine is. Sorry. :(

    Pack up the box and take it in to the store. Go to cust svc and tell them you want to return it andbuy another with the price match. They will cave just so they don't have to sell it as an open box. Heck you might even get another gift card out of the deal!
