    includes "Introducing the New TiVo Roamio DVR", on page 5, with "3X Reward Zone points with purchase" (normal price, though). I was surprised to see that only the base Roamio is mentioned.

    I bought my Pro from Best Buy. I wonder if I can retroactively get the triple points. I believe I got double points for putting it on my Best Buy card, but triple is even better. :)

    The BestBuy return period is now 15 days.

    They reduced it to 15 days and increased the silver reward zone members return period from 45 days to 60 days.

    Please report back! I just purchased my Pro on Thursday and I'd love the bonus points as well.

    If I could transfer my $6.95 plan from my OTA only Premiere I would pick up a ROamio Basic to replace it. Although I am more interested in the smaller size since I take my OTA only Premiere back and forth to my GFs house so the Romaio Basic would replace it.

    If Best Buy acts they way they typically do, they'll refuse to credit you the points, but will be happy to allow you to return your used Roamio, then buy a new one and take that home. Cuz, you know, that works out WORSE for both the consumer and the store.

    They refused to price match a BB.Com order a week after I placed it (they PM only a the time of purchase.)
    I thought for sure when I told them I could just buy from the lower-price vendor, then return the item I'd been using for the past week to a Best Buy store, they'd ok the price match. Nope, no dice. So I ordered from the cheaper seller, and returned that item to BB new and unopened. Less hassle for me, and a better outcome for BB than getting a used item back.

    Anyway, TiVo's have serial numbers, and I don't know if they log them, but if they do, you may not be able to buy a new one, then return it unopened with your original purchase receipt.

    Hope they do the smart thing and just give you the credit.

    I tried to get them to give me th triple points on a Plus that I picked up from BB a week ago. Called the reward zone line and got the run around...the agent insisted she needed a promo code to give me the points and that was after a 10 minute interrogation. Finally I just gave up.

    Only the base Roamio is available in most Best Buys stores. The other two are exclusive to Magnolia stores only.

    I tried to order the Plus. yesterday. The site showed the product as available, but once I was checking out told me to remove the product from the cart as it was unavailable. The site had previously shown the model in stock at my local store. Today, both the Plus and Pro are listed as backordered. What's the good of "backordered" if you can't even "order" it all? :p

    Yikes, I hope I get one before the fall TV season starts. I'd prefer to get it from Best Buy.

    It seems that only the base Roamio gets you 3X points, from the wording of the ad.

    I guess it really worked out for me then when I ordered my Romaio Pro two weeks ago. Magnolia gave me the Reward Zone points and 3 years no interest financing..

    If you used the BB Card you actually got 5% back in reward points, 2 1/2 times the standard 2%.

    Correct. But you can't get the bonus RZ points AND no interest financing. It's either/or.
