    Spherular, will the codes work for existing customers or only good for new fresh accounts?

    It works fine for existing customers, but only on new equipment - so no $300 discounted lifetime for existing TiVo's, sorry.

    I ordered a code from spherular yesterday afternoon for a very fair price. I received it almost instantly. Great communication, this guy is legit.

    Just used the code this morning to order a Roamio Pro, 3 minis and a slide remote and saved over $400!

    Anybody thinking about upgrading or adding to your existing system, this is DEFINITELY the way to go.

    Thanks again spherular!

    I bought a code from Spherular today. I contacted him via email. It came quickly, and worked just fine to save me hundreds off the price of a Roamio Pro.

    Nooneuknow makes a fair point. I think it is fine to generally point out in this thread that these codes do exist. But if someone wants to discuss their own experience with a specific code seller, or if someone wants to know more about where or from whom they can get these codes, they should be redirected to the buyer/seller forum area.

    I'd say this is a better spot since this is a deals thread. So people can post the deal and the experience with the seller. I don't think I would ever be looking for info like that in the sales forum. I would expect there to be only sales there,

    I agree, as the sales part of this Forums is for the hardware itself, most likely a one time offer, the codes are different, no hardware itself, just how to get a good deal on such hardware.

    I only knew about the codes and this particular seller because of THIS thread, so that is why I posted here. I don't see anything wrong with letting anyone else like myself who comes to THIS thread looking for a deal that this seller is legit.

    You were looking for a deal on a new Roamio, not somebody's resale, so you came to this Thread, for any resale of a Roamio itself one would go the sellers Thread.
    If Best Buy has a great sale for a new Roamio, post to this Thread, if one has a Roamio (or other TiVo hardware) to sell, post in the other Thread.

    In the past, sometimes, Tivo had FATHERS DAY sales. Free units, but with longer contract terms. Would be nice. Just wondering....

    The bottom line is that I upgraded from a TIVO HD and a $12.95 monthly charge to a Roamio Plus $299 and lifetime $300 for a total of $599. The code cost me $30. The Roamio and its Ipad app are out of this world compared to the functional TIVO HD and lifetime will payoff in 23 months. In total I saved around $300 off of the best alternate price I could find and I'm excited that the payoff time is so short.

    So the way it worked was the seller posted a "buy it now" code on ebay. I offered less than the buy it now price. Within 3 minutes I received an email from the seller saying that he accepted the bid. I paid through paypal and the seller sent me the code. The entire process took about 15 minutes. At this point I told my wife what I was going to do and received her okay.

    The next step was to go to the tivo site and buy the tivo with lifetime. It took a few minutes for me to find the "enter promo code" section of the cart. I did so and purchased the item. Tivo sent a receipt about two hours later. The Tivo shipped from Texas and upon receipt I took the cable card out of the TIVO HD and put it in the Roamio. It took two calls to comcast before HBO came through. Everything was too easy.

    If you look at the item on ebay and then the sellers feedback percentage its a strong indicator that you will get what you pay for.

    I hope no-one thinks I'm out of line, but I just wanted to caution people about the price paid for a code. Sometimes I have a large supply of codes and sometimes I don't. Right now supply is less than normal so I'm unlikely to accept lower offers. It may be that the price accepted goes down again, but it may well have to increase.

    I'm always happy to entertain offers, but please don't expect the price paid to always be the same for everyone.

    Thanks again

    Thanks to spherular I just saved $551.95 on a Roamio Pro and two minis! Totally legit, I received the code within 5 minutes and ordered from Tivo within another 5 minutes. Now, off to Verizon.com to order a cable card and return my lousy Motorola boxes.

    Well, yes it's more expensive than just buying lifetime service in the long run, but those prices aren't terrible compared to their usual retail pricing. They are effectively charging $5/month more than normal for monthly service, so over 2 years that amounts to $120. So you are basically paying $120 for a Roamio basic, $220 for a Plus, and $320 for a Pro.
