    I asked BB tonight to match Tivo's $500 Roamio Pro offer and they did it only minor effort on my part! They first asked me for an offer email, but I explained I read about the $100 discount here and I had to phone Tivo to get it. That was all it took to get the match!

    True, my return window is 14 days (vs. 30 with Tivo), but it's much easier to swap in case of problems.

    I got an email with a coupon code from TiVo today offering $125 off a Basic + Lifetime, $150 off a Plus + Lifetime, and $200 off a Pro + Lifetime for existing customers.

    Very interesting, can you post a screen cap? Just received my Roamio Plus today and perhaps it can be matched by ABT (minus the service)

    Yea but its really $25/$50/$100 off since as a current subscriber you would already be eligible for the discounted $400 lifetime.

    Yeah, I just realized that and came back to post that I guess it's just an email offering me what people were getting on the phone. :eek:

    I also received the above offer. Here's the landing page link that was in the e-mail.

    <link removed just in case> :p

    And I noticed this too.
    Meh.

    Give me something like a lifetime transfer from an S2 for a reduced fee. Something like that would mean a lot more to me as an existing customer, since it seems that anyone can get a deal for a few dollars off. :rolleyes:
    (Yes I feel entitled.) :p

    Steve, are you sure that is not a unique code for you?

    I think it is unique, the link from my email has a different promo code.

    It's never a good deal to buy directly from Tivo as it's tax'ed at the full retail price, not the subsidized rate.

    TiVo CS offered me a second Plus at $350 shipped when when I was on the line with them rearranging some TSNs and told them I was going to buy another one.

    No thanks became a really good answer when Plus number two developed an issue reading cable card insertion. Amazon's immediate replacement policy for suspected defectives can't be beat with a stick. And TiVo charges tax.

    Amazon is starting to charge sales tax in more and more states. Good though for those of you not included!

    Any discounts on lifetime for non recent customers? I had the original TiVo with lifetime and most of DirectTivos and am thinking about coming back.

    Hey! I just ordered a Roamio Pro from ABT. They price matched the TiVo deal at $100 off. So $499 with no tax and no shipping. I tried at two different best buy locations last night and got shot down both times. No problem at ABT. FYI, if you are thinking of getting a Roamio Plus and swapping for a 3TB hard drive then this deal has the equivalent cost with no hassle and gives you an intact warranty.

    I believe you can use code PLSR to get $100 off lifetime ($399 instead of $499) as long as you don't buy the TiVo unit directly from TiVo.

    On the offer screen, under "Common questions" clicking on "Are you offering current TiVo subscribers a Multi-Service Discount if they purchase a new box?" brings up answer "Yes. Current TiVo subscribers may qualify for an additional $2 off of each monthly service fee or $100 off of Product Lifetime service as long as their current qualifying TiVo service subscription remains active in accordance with the Multi-Service Discount Agreement. Log onto tivo.com to see if you qualify."
