How low could we get the price. I had an advisory panel cert in Jan that could have gotten me the unit for 25 dollars, but I wasn't ready for one at the time.

Remember the full price starts at $250, getting the Mini (with lifetime) for say $200 is a 20% discount from the full price, not bad but not close to a 50% discount that one may think they are getting with a $50 Mini

Is this the best deal I can expect at this time or should I wait a bit longer?
Is this a deal anyone can get if they buy a Roamio?

FYI - Sams Club has the Roamio Plus for $299 and the Roamio Pro for $499. That amounts to $100 off each from full retail.

When did Tivo start offering the $100 of Roamio Plus/Pro and $200 off the lifetime subscription with the discount code? Is that the best deal ever?

Yep, but the fleabay discount code deal still blows this away if you want lifetime (and you should).

It's a promo thing they're running with retailers to get them to sell more Tivos, workers at these places are taking the codes and reselling them. Yes, it's the best deal you're going to get right now and probably for quite a while.

http://www.sellmoretivo.com

I'm sure the codes are not supposed to be resold but Tivo is apparently looking the other way, to our advantage.

What, how you're selling codes that you're not supposed to? I mean I was glad to take advantage but I'm mildly surprised Tivo hasn't busted your balls given that you're essentially undercutting the retailer you work for.

So you were "glad to take advantage" of the "codes that you're not supposed to" in order to save yourself a few bucks, but you are criticizing someone trying to make a few bucks themselves by selling the codes and undercutting the retailer they work for? This is just the type of entrepreneurial spirit that the modern American capitalist economy is built on. You communist.

It's not as clear cut as that. I've been working with them for some time, some people sell codes which they acquired through, shall we say, interesting methods and have fallen foul. I've never had a problem with any code I've provided and maybe that is why people keep coming back.

Ultimately TiVo want their product to sell and if I'm helping someone to buy that just needed that little extra incentive, then they are all for it. We all know that if you choose TiVo, you're often an advocate for the brand, allowing a few more people to buy at a lower price invariably drives new users to the Roamio platform.

TiVo's latest quarterly numbers show that for the first time 6 years that net active TiVo owners increased 6k to 966k boosted by the 49k in gross additions made in the quarter ending January 31. You know the shareholders and management want to get back up to a million before the year is out!

I got a code on ebay (not from spherular, from another user), did a best offer and got it. Used it today for a Roamio Pro, service and a Slide Pro remote. Glad to be back with Tivo!

I got a code from Spherular recently. Just took delivery of the order yesterday. Saved ~$1K. I haven't owned a Tivo since the Series 2 and if I were paying retail, I probably wouldn't have bought these. IMO the monthly fees are crazy if you have a few minis, so lifetime is the better option, though a lot of money up front even when discounted. Crossing my fingers this setup works well and I get more than 2 years out of it.

Wow! So what's the "baseline" one could expect to spend on each model, perhaps broken down to those with lifetime, and those bought without service right now?

I must say that I wouldn't have gone back to Tivo if it weren't for the codes. How much is the slider remote with the discount code?

$35, but you can only get the Roamio version which doesn't have the dongle. You need the dongle to use the keyboard with a Mini.

The codes are legit, I used one but I'm a buyer and not a seller.

Thing is I never would of come back to Tivo because their retail pricing is ridiculous. The codes saves substantial amounts of $$ which made the deal palatable to me after feeling pretty screwed after the premiere.

I don't see the big deal on someone re-selling discount codes as long as they are getting them legitimately.
In the end, TiVo is getting another subscription on the books. That's probably all they care about.

But the problem is that Tivo expressly prohibits the transfer of these codes when they're received, if you click through the sellmoretivo.com signup you can see that. It seems apparent that they're willing to boost sales even though it's really to the detriment of the retailers selling their product.

I wouldn't think it would have a major impact on sales or the bottom line one way or another.

Agreed, and that's probably why they don't care. But it's very easy to find on fleabay.

Can anyone post what we can expect to pay for the various Roamio devices with one of these codes?

And is it worth it to pay extra for the Roamio Pro vs. the Plus or would it be cheaper to just get the Plus and buy a bigger HDD for it (if that's even possible)?

I'm thinking about upgrading either one or both of my S3 Tivos to Roamios. I'm hoping that I can transfer shows from my S3 Tivos and my computer to the Roamios AND that the Roamios will allow me to transfer shows from them to my computer too.

$125 dollars or best offer? Tivo discounts are appreciating faster than bitcoin!
