    If you are talking about a promo code in an email that TiVo sent you, each one is specific to an existing TiVo, and you have to get the email in the first place. Then the code from the email can be used to get $399 LTS (which you qualified for already, most likely, as long as you have an existing TiVo on your account that you paid full price for LTS or pay full price for monthly service).

    Yes, but as has been mentioned many times in this thread before the emails even started going out originally, existing customers had/have been getting this offer if they called TiVo without the email. So for customers who have not gotten the special email (yet? I figured everyone would have gotten it by now... I have gotten 3 of them so far), they should be able to get the $499 + $399 deal by just calling them up and asking for it.

    Not sure why my post was quoted as I never said that would work. The post I was responding to was regarding a possible purchase from ABT, not Tivo.

    Finally decide to pull the trigger on the Plus from Abt. I was still able to get it for $339 (and another $20 off via AmEx for $319 shipped). As was mentioned by another user and from my own chat session, it seems the sale is technically over, but they "can still honor the $339 price." If you've been on the fence, it's likely this deal will be gone very soon.

    Too bad I live in Illinois. Where Abt is, Cook County tax there is like 8.75%.

    It was intended for the benefit of those who may have just been coming into the thread for the first time. The PLSR code has often come up as being "no longer available", or "not working", when people have tried it with a direct purchase, and not realizing the reason why (and not just in this thread).

    I'd never expect anybody just coming into this thread, to actually read every post, just to know all the specifics and variables.

    I'll try to not quote any posts, and instead just post a quote-less reminder, on such things, in the future, but MMMV on that.

    I guess where I'm at in Illinois I have a bargain at 6.75%...(Illinois 6.25% and East Moline .50% -- we have no county sales tax)

    Called TiVo tonight and said I wanted a Roamio Pro for the 499.99 upgrade price and got it with no hesitation. Originally tried to get a discount code from support to order online (I deleted my e-mail upgrade offer). They actually gave me a code but when entered I got an error "this code has already been redeemed" When I reported that the code did not work, they said that was the only code they had. That I would have to call to get the upgrade price.

    Ooh, I forgot about that price.. I did get them to price match Amazon last weekend.. Sure, it was only about $5 off, but that's still $5 less than I would have paid without matching.. and yes, you can still get the $50 BB gift card too.. (no of course it doesn't count to pay for part of that purchase)

    Best Buy doesn't sell the WD DVR drives, although there are some available on the marketplace. Can you use gift cards for marketplace purchases?

    I don't know about any other brands... I always seem to get WD.

    I just received my 3Tb WD30EURX from Provantage. $121 + $5.50 shipping. Now all I need is my Roamio plus, held up in a UPS trailer in my city. Arggh.

    They have the WDBH2D0030HNC-NRSN for $129.99 and the WD30EZRX for $139.99. Both from Best Buy, not the Marketplace. The WD30EZRX is also available from the BB Marketplace for 129.45.

    While neither of these drives are AV, I would think that at least the EZRX would be fine.

    Whether or not this is the best use of the gift card would depend on a lot of factors. I was merely pointing out that it is a use relevant to the purchase.

    I used my Best Buy gift card to buy a Kindle gift card, which I used to toward the purchase of the drive I wanted from Amazon. Best Buy places the Kindle gift cards next to the Kindle devices in their tablet section, not up front next to the other gift cards as one might expect.

    Is there something different about a Kindle gift card than a regular Amazon one? Or is it just that they don't sell the Amazon ones?

    Kindle GCs and Amazon GCs are the exact same. I have purchased them several times. It appears Best Buy doesn't sell the regular GCs because Amazon is their competitor. When you read the back of the card it states that they can be used to purchase anything at Amazon.
