    Roamio Plus is 349.99 at Costco and via Tivo directly.

    They probably won't price match costco because it's a club that requires membership. Also good luck finding documentation from TiVo that they are sale for 349.99. I can get them to acknowledge it over the phone but they wouldn't give me anything in writing I could bring with me some where.

    Are you guys finding TiVo in Costco? I can't see any listings on their website.

    I can tell you from experience that what costco has in stores is not usually on their website.

    Which is something I hate for stores that do that. Instead of driving me to go to the store, it drives me away to buy elsewhere.

    That's annoying for me, as I have a membership but we have no store nearby. :)

    I was able to get BB to price-match Amazon yesterday afternoon...the gift-card didn't pop up until after I swiped my card, but then the guy says "...and you get a $50 gift-card with the purchase of a Tivo."
    So boom, got the deal! of course it's more like a $42 deal since I had to pay sales tax. Then I take another tax hit when I use the gift card. But all said and done, It's at least a $35 better deal than buying through Amazon.
    I actually called tivo before heading to the store to see if they'd match anyone. They put me on hold for a minute which made me somewhat hopeful, but then the girl came back and said the $25 discount is the only offer they are currently giving.

    Of course YMMV, but it's been done successfully by many people on slickdeals.

    Obviously. I was just letting you know that price matching can be done via credit card post-hoc with Discover, and perhaps with other companies as well. That's something I learned only recently myself, and wanted to share since you were bemoaning the loss of a potential deal.

    Judging by the long diatribe you seem more than a tiny bit annoyed, but it's no skin off my back. I took the time to share what info on deals I had. Prefacing your post with "no offense" and then spewing vitriol is just silly. If you want to skim over my posts, please do by all means. I'll make it a point to do the same. It's a shame there's no "ignore this user" function here.

    I've read the relevant parts of this thread and post in existing topics before creating a new thread if applicable. Obviously with BF and Cyber Monday, jumping on deals is a time sensitive matter.

    How's that, it's right there in Best Buy's PM policy:

    They also have the Roamio + for $320.99 that I ordered, I will have my 10lb package from them on Dec 2nd, you pay using PayPal (and I pay PayPal using AX for extra safety) I will let you all know what's in the package when I get it Tuesday.

    I REALLY hope this is a legitimate shopping site, but I have my doubts. The website is well done (no grammatical errors, easy browsing), but remember the old adage, if it's too good to be true, it probably is. This beats the best price on a pro by quite a bit; the MO of these sites is to hook you with a low price. I almost was taken by a similar site buying running shoes. They were $50 cheaper than anywhere else. It didn't feel right so I backed out. I was glad I did because I later found out it was a scam site. Please let us know if you receive your product. And please be honest, because many of us here will likely order if it's indeed legit.

    I am logged into my Tivo account and it it showing me the Roamio Plus for $399. I even added it to the cart to see if the price changed and I'm still seeing the same price.

    Where are you seeing the Roamio Plus for $349.99 on Tivo's website?

    You have to call Tivo sales. Pricing is available to current customers.

    Best Buy is offering $10 savings code per $100 spent for online orders with in-store pickup through Monday 12/2. Code is valid 12/9 - 12/24. Max $50.

    Details: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/global-...er/pcmcat288300050007.c?id=pcmcat288300050007

    They have the Roamio w/ $50 giftcards listed as separate items, all at MSRP. You would need to find some fillers to do:

    Basic: $199 + filler - $50 giftcard - $20 savings code = about $130 +tax
    Plus: $399 + filler - $50 giftcard - $40 savings code = $310 + tax
    Pro: $599 + filler - $50 giftcard - $50 savings code = $500 + tax

    Tax will be based on MSRP + filler price.

    If you have Amex, stack with Amex Sync $25 off $250 at Best Buy.

    What is the Costco item number for the pro?
    Easy to call your local store with the number before heading out.
    They will also look up the item number and tell you what stores have them.

    I'm going to suggest that anybody thinking of taking a voyage to any retail store(s), looking for price matches, take the time to review, and print, the store(s) policies BEFORE leaving the house, for these reasons:

    1. Since these policies (as they do state), are subject to change at any time, for any reason, without advance notice, it just makes sense to do so.

    2. If you don't, then post about not getting what you went out for, you make an easy target for people who like to take cheap shots, by posting the policy as it currently stands (which may have been different the day, or even hours, before).

    Happy deal hunting!

    I will know this Tuesday, but using PayPal VIA AX if it is a scam I can get my money back. They did give me a UPS tracking number and the 9.2 Lb box (that I hope is a new Roamio +) was shipped from OH.
