    Got a Roamio Pro for $446 and two Mini's for $73.50 each.... Thanks to a friends employee discount (at a retailer, not Tivo). Added lifetime to the Pro for $399.

    I'm retiring an HD and Premiere XL (lifetime) with this upgrade and I have to tell you, the Roamio is the best performing Tivo yet. This thing smokes what the old HD and Premiere are doing. Only 2 days into it, but quite happy so far.

    And can you get us that deal, this post is for deals we all can get, my son giving me a Roamio for free as a gift does not help anybody get a good deal on a Roamio.

    Please post your friend's phone number as I'd really like to take advantage of this deal, too! ;)

    That's a great deal especially since Cyber Monday isn't until December this year.

    Yeah I got one for free too, just now, because I complained that my Elite was a slow pig. :rolleyes:
    Stop trolling and explain how you got it.

    $50 Off would be a Plus not a Pro,

    $349 for a Pro is wishful thinking, IMO

    Here are my prices for a TiVo Roamio Plus (California resident)

    $410.61 = $399 - $25 (ROAMIOPLUS) + $35.62 CA Tax + Free Shipping

    $397.99 = $399 - $50 (Existing customer deal) + $48 CA Tax + Free Shipping

    ABT.com online
    $374.99 = $399 - $25 (THXOCT13) + $0 CA Tax + Free Shipping

    So I called ABT and asked them to price match TiVo's $50 off, not only did they match it, they beat it by $10 for no reason!
    $339.99 = $399 - $60 + $0 CA Tax + Free Shipping

    Suffice it to say, I ordered from ABT. So it seems $339.99 for a TiVo Roamio Plus is the price to beat. Also, the outstanding service ABT has shown me during this purchase experience will definitely lead to me returning to purchase some other things I need.

    Just ordered my Roamio Plus for $339 (free shipping/no Tax) via phone. I haven't ordered from ABT before, but was highly impressed by their polite and helpful service rep! Definitely recommend buying from here, and thank you Philmatic for the suggestion.

    Thanks for these ABT reports. I bought my Roamio Plus from ABT about three weeks ago and just got a price adjustment. I bought many of my previous TiVos from ABT as well.

    Just placed my order with ABT referencing the deal as you've laid it out and got the same $339 price.

    Thanks for doing the legwork to find this!

    I have a lifetime Premiere, and I want a lifetime Roamio Plus. It sounds like I get a $100 discount on the new lifetime contract if I purchase the unit through TiVo, but not through ABT?

    I guess I have some phone calls to make on Monday to see where all the numbers end up!

    You'll still get the $100 discount if you purchase elsewhere. I did not buy direct from TiVo and got lifetime for $399.

    I was also able to get the ABT deal for $339! I have been wanting a Roamio Plus and I don't know if I will get a better deal than this any time soon, so I jumped on it. Thanks guys!
