    I'm down for $399, how do I sign up for that? I see $499 as regular price.

    How did you get the $339 offer...did you have the promo email from Tivo which ABT price matched?

    I'd like the same deal but I don't have the promo email. :(

    Nice and polite go a long way. I once was denied checking my bags late on a flight to Vancouver. The counter people explained that boarding had completed. I pleaded my case but finally the supervisor firmly told me I'd have to take the next flight.

    I start walking away stunned and then turn back to ask her what are my options? I calmly explain my situation to her (I'm meeting up with friends in Vancouver and taking a chartered bus to Whistler) and she tells me a bit annoyed to get on that line. I tell her "thank you" and I get on the line. 30 seconds later she comes over and asks me "How many bags do I have to check?" She explains that most people scream and yell at her and just for being nice she's getting me on this plane.

    She then calls down to the gate to tell them we have a late boarder and then has counter people check my bag!! I've never been so relieved and happy in my life.

    It's their own unadvertised special. If you ask for the $339 Roamio Plus the rep will know right what you're talking about and offer it to you. No promo email or price matching hassle required. I'm assuming it's tax free to everyone outside of Illinois, too.

    I just ordered a Roamio Pro from ABT for $489 and a Mini for $86. I chatted on-line to get that price. I then placed my order on-line with my Discover Card and then called the representative with the order number and they adjusted the price. I'm hoping I get the 10% Cashback bonus though ShopDiscover plus the 5% for buying on-line, but I probably won't because the price was adjusted, but I can still hope. Bottom line $575 shipped. I contacted Tivo sales about lifetime service for both the Pro and the Mini and they said that since I was going to activate two devices that I would get a $100 multi device discount even though I was a new customer and didn't buy direct from Tivo. We'll see what happens.

    I just did an ABT order also, hassle free. One plus and one mini for $425. They are out of stock right now, but that is not a problem for me. They have been "flying off the shelves" according to the guy I chatted with.

    If it makes you feel any better I had a similar experience when I purchased a TiVo from McLego.com. They shipped from Bestbuy.com. Everything was as if I purchased the TiVo directly from BestBuy and not McLego.com. In fact there was no mention of McLego.com anywhere on the box. The shipping invoice and return shipping label were all BestBuy.

    BestBuy must be handling the shipment of some of the small internet companies. I had zero problems with my shipment. If you have any problems with the TiVo you will be dealing with BestBuy, which may be a better thing.

    Yeah it's called drop shipping, though there usually is at least an attempt to disguise the distributor's identity with labels and package slips and what not. Guess not in this case.

    Or it could be fencing. Selling goods online way below market value is a great way to cash out stolen credit card numbers.

    Wow, I never thought of that!

    That McLego site is mad shady. Try clicking on the links on the bottom, none of them work except for the "contact us" link.

    That's a tough one. Even if you simply suspect something could be stolen, or purchased with stolen money/CC/DC, and you do the right thing, you could find yourself having to hand over what you purchased as evidence.

    Then the nightmare has only begun.

    I'd play dumb, maybe even redact posts about it, if I suddenly had such suspicions.

    I'd review the fine print of the protection your card gives you, and be sure if the property is taken as evidence, you get your money back (and WHEN you get it back), before making any inquiries.

    This is a common problem with pre-paid phone service cards/pins. If the carrier finds out the pin was purchased with a stolen credit card, they will revoke the credit from the phone account that used the pin.

    Please indicate the Costco location I did not find in Southern California, not all Costcos carries the same stuff, inclusive in the same area.

    About purchase in Costco is good because the return policy, but you pay taxes instead online offer ABT.com is free taxes and shipping, I must add Tivo protection.
