No price deal, but local BestBuy has them in stock in the Magnolia section. Walked in Friday at 2pm. They needed 15 minutes to find the Roamio Plus in the stockroom, and I was walking out with it and a mini minutes later.

Had the Roamio activated with lifetime and the cable card transferred from the old TiVo HD and activated an hour after getting home.

I didn't save money. But I saved effort by buying retail

Sheesh, sure didn't. Congrats to those who got in on the deal.

Wanted to add a note - in case anybody missed it, my order confirmation says this will be shipped requiring a signature for delivery, so be aware, someone will have to be home to receive it.

The only discount/codes for the basic that I'm aware of:

weakness.com has free shipping and no tax and a $10 off code ROAMIO making the basic $189.99.

BestBuy has 3x the reward zone points on basic models only(this week only).

I chatted with ABT yesterday and they said they expect the Roamio Pro's in stock today, and out for shipping, so hopefully on Monday it'll be delivered. No shipping notice yet, though.

Best Buy has it for $0.01 off.
Does that count?

Looks like I need to go back to BestBuy and get a price match on my replacement Roamio Pro.

I'll never be an early adopter because I don't want to have to deal with the plethora of problems that need to be worked out. Plus I always have buyer's remorse unless I know I'm getting a really good deal. That being said, what's the most we can expect the price to plummet this Black Friday?

The S3s and Premieres dropped 35-40% in price after their initial release, though it took some time.

I would bet more on either a sale on the mini by itself, or a roamio with a mini bundle (at less then the normal prices).

My guess is bundle deals (Roamio + Minis) and maybe $50 off the Plus or Pro.

Phooey. Between the steep price and all the unresolved issues, it looks like I won't be getting a Roamio anytime soon.

Pro for sale

I've got an extra Romio Pro for sale for $500. Never opened it up. Thought I would need 2 Romio Pro's, but I love the mini solution with a single Romio Pro.
Also have an extra Mini for $85 and a 4 Tuner Premiere Elite XL for $250. Oh, yeah, and now I don't need my stream either, so let's say $50 for that...

Amazon / Best Buy Price match

I got a Roamio base model yesterday at Best Buy. $149.00 on Amazon, Best Buy did price match and gave me $65 in gift cards that I used on a mini, price matched from Amazon for $86.

So I got a Roamio and mini for $170 plus tax.

Why the $65 in gift cards?

Best Buy has two separate promotions going on right now. One is a $50 gift card with any roamio, and another is a $15 gift card with any $100 purchase.

Did Best Buy give you the gift cards at cashiers after purchase and you never asked for them?

Wow

I guess I lucked out. I didn't know about the gist cards from BB until I purchased.
