    I just bought a new Premiere through Amazon (Electronics Expo again) for $95 shipped.

    Had to click on the "See Price in Cart" to notice the deal.

    The coupon brings the price down to $149.35 with shipping. I don't need another one and am almost tempted to buy one anyway!

    Wow, even for those with a current Lifetime unit via TiVo website new Premiere + $200 Lifetime service = $470 total (not counting shipping). Amazon deal + $300 Lifetime service is now $395 including shipping! Before this all other deals I had seen were more than buying via TiVo and the $200 Lifetime service offer.
    Guess Premiere hardware is not selling very briskly which is not too surprising.

    Now I'm tempted for the Amazon deal...

    EDIT: Couldn't resist and placed an order just in case Amazon was going to run out of stock. I will have to see if I will bother activating service on it yet or not.

    Awesome deal. Placed an order as well, couldn't pass it up. Wish I could somehow transfer my S3 lifetime sub for $200.

    How are they selling these for less than 1/2 off everyone else? Has anyone bought and received one yet?

    PLSR code "should" still work to save $100 on lifetime.

    Can that be used in addition to MSD discount of $100? i.e. With MSD lifetime goes to $300. Are you saying that potentially then applying PLSR code would further bring it down to $200? I would think not but haven't tried.

    Don't know how/if it would work against MSD....

    I ordered one from Amazon for $95 delivered.

    I am not sure how that is possible.

    Looks like it's gone back up. Guess it was a mistake....

    Wow, big difference. I hope they will honor placed orders before the "correction". The $94.51 charge from amazon.com payments is already on my credit card...

    I think somebody messed up, the price I paid is not the amount you save :)

    I bought it, I wonder if they will honor it.

    Amazon frequently makes changes to their prices (sometimes significant ones). I've never had a problem with them honoring a particularly good deal. Actually, Amazon is pretty awesome.

    Except this is not Amazon but a third-party retailer though Amazon Marketplace. My guess is you'll see an apology email and a credit to your card shortly.

    It's funny I am tempted, but it would depend on what I could get for my current upgraded HD unit. Of course it is my only remaining TiVo with an upgrade offer.

    It's still $136.16 on the electronics expo website itself using the link in the OP and that coupon code, but I can't get it to let choose shipping, only store pickup. I can, however, get it to show shipping on a Premiere XL.
