    Another thumbs-up for spherular's TiVo discount codes on eBay: I purchased a Roamio Pro and two Minis and saved a chunk of money using a discount code. The equipment arrived yesterday from TiVo, already pre-activated, and everything works just like the equipment I purchased at full price.

    I just received an email from tivo for a $200.00 off the purchase of a roamio pro,for a total cost of $899.00 with lifetime. shouldnt it be $799.00 with lifetime if i already have 2 tivo premieres or is the ebay discount cheaper? ( I will go check the ebay codes.Ifi decide to order from tivo shouldnt i also get the $100.00 off lifetime since i already have tivo service? I t makes it sound like i;m getting $100.00 off the pro and $100.off lifteime:confused:

    $899 for the Roamio Pro with Lifetime is an all in one price offered by tivo to existing customers. Their standard offer is $599.99 for the Pro Unit and $499.99 for lifetime, so you are getting a $200 saving versus a new customer or $100 as an existing customer (as you only pay $399.99 for lifetime on additional units).

    The code allows you to get a Roamio Pro with lifetime for $699.99, so it's $200 cheaper than the price you have been offered. There may also be sales tax savings too. The cost of the code is your only other consideration.

    I priced it up myself and they wanted $22/mo plus $8 per outlet whereas the cablecard is $4.99 - so its $25/mo saving by going the cablecard route for one box, then more if you want more than one tv hooked up.

    Feel free to contact me directly if you have any other questions

    Does this code have an expiration date? I do not have the free cash to buy a Roamio just yet but would consider buying a code if I knew how long it was good for.

    I don't mean to be an ungrateful schlub but...
    Where do these codes come from? Is this legit? Is Tivo going to hose me down the road because I used some code that was for employees only or something?

    These codes are legit. It has been discussed in detail many times before on this board (and I think in this very thread). TiVo gives these codes out to people who work for retailers that sell TiVos to try to encourage the salespeople to actually use the TiVos that they are trying to sell. Apparently TiVo hands out a ton of them and some retailer employees just turn around and sell surplus codes on ebay.

    This is the TiVo website associated with this code program:

    Wow. Went this route with the code. A little less than $300 off what they have advertised with the MSD discount. Roamio Pro is now on the way.
    Thanks spherular.

    TiVo wording is inconsistent with the purchase of Lifetime service, they (TiVo) don't even talk about Lifetime service in the T&C.

    T&C says "one-time service payment option," which, I assume, means lifetime.

    Your correct BUT if you leave the employment you suppose to have a loss on the good monthly deal, TiVo does not say what happens to the Lifetime deals under this program, seems like TiVo should cover the Lifetime part if you no longer work for the Co. that gave you the purchase codes. I am also assuming that the "one-time service payment option," is another way to say Lifetime, for all the people using these codes and don't have the employment to get these codes, I hope, for their sake, that true.

    It's lifetime according to my Roamio and Minis after I used a code. Don't overthink this.
