    There was a code emailed to some people. But it sounded like you needed to call TiVo to get the deal before that (or if you don't have the email).

    If you're buying from TiVo you have to call in to get this deal. If you call or chat with ABT they will price match it. Best Buy is not interested in price matching this deal as there is no printed documentation from TiVo.

    OK, I am finally willing to get a Roamio and ditch a Premiere/multiple premieres. Can someone run down my current options? Hard to tell in this thread what is possible as of today.

    Thanks in advance.

    Roamio Base: $25 off + $399 lifetime
    Roamio Plus: $50 off + $399 lifetime
    Roamio Pro: $100 off + $399 lifetime

    All other offers YMMV.

    Correct. I activated the unit I bought from abt.com and used that code. Lifetime was $399.

    I actually use BestBuy more now. Especially since Amazon charges taxes in Virginia and typically when they use same day delivery they use Lasership. I've tried a few same day deliveries and it's been 50/50 whether I get it because Lasership is incompetent. I had a two day package today that never showed up because of Lasership. And I've had packages delivered to Amazon lockers from Lasership that sat there for days because a pickup code was never issued. I've had a bunch of packages with messed up deliveries because of Amazon using LaserShip. So typically now, since BestBuy matches Amazon prices, I can just stop by one of the four BestBuy stores that are on my way home and pick up the item with much more certainty than Amazon delivering it.

    Now granted Amazon will typically give me a $10 or $20 credit when Lasership does this, but sometimes I want the item right away. Giving me a credit doesn't get me the item. Since it has to be reordered and they say they can't control who is used for the delivery. I always hope it's UPS, but unfortunately half the time it ends up being Lasership.

    How fast is Tivo shipping? Are any other places offering this deal? ABT is local and showing out of stock. :(

    I just had no trouble getting Best Buy to match TiVO's $100 off a Pro tonight. I called first to make sure they would do it before going over there, and asked for a manager. Never got to one. The guy who picked up put me on hold, then initially came back and said that it was $599.99 on TiVO's website. I said that you had to call in to TiVO for $100 off. He put me on hold for 30 secs while he checked with the manager, and then came back on and said "no problem." I'm setting it up as we speak.

    As always, YMMV.

    You can use the PLSR discount code for $100 off lifetime service even if you buy the Roamio directly from TiVo, however it turns out to be an $85 discount because you have to initially select the monthly $14.99 service plan, wait 31 days until the first $14.99 is charged, and then you can upgrade to lifetime using the code ($399 instead of $499). You can't use the PLSR code until after 31 days have passed and you have paid the $14.99 for the first month.

    (I just did this process)

    I saw on slick deals that someone was able to get their $6.95 plan moved over to a roamio. Anyone else had success doing this?

    I phoned and got lifetime for $399 right away without paying that first month you're referring to. And I got my Roamio Pro from BB.

    Yes. 80% of my purchases on Amazon are from Amazon and not a third party seller. Less hasseles going through Amazon even if it is a little more expensive than the third party seller.

    I work for BB one night a week (3 hours), JUST to get the BB discounts.

    Pay sucks but discounts are great!

    My day work is very close to NH, so my BB discount, plus no sales tax, priceless (relatively speaking, of course!)
