Gets you to a page with an Add to Cart button. The S3 then shows up in your cart with a notation including the number to call to transfer lifetime.
If you go through the normal buy process you are forced to choose a plan. Lifetime transferrers need to go through the VIP page.

Someone already pointed out that Retail purchases are not eligible.
Thar's the rub!
See they're not so stupid after all.

ah30k is correct. Here's the first item in the T&Cs:
TivoŽ Series3TM HD DVR purchase required by 12/31/2006 and activation of the DVR is required by 01/31/2007. Series3 HD DVR must be purchased through TiVo.com. DVRs purchased through retail channels are not eligible.

Yeah....I made the mistake of trying to order the box only off the lifetime sub transfer page (not noticing that...duh!)....I had to cancel my order after realizing what I'd done. The CS rep said they ordinarily don't cancel orders, but, in this case, they would. I told her I doubt I will be the only person who does this.
