yes they did...

If you are new to TiVo and want the best discount, it is potentially the best way to do it. You know you are buying direct from TiVo after all.

Yes, I can see that, especially if your making a whole-home purchase. However, you've just made out much better than the buyer (on a free code). In their best case scenario, you got 400 while they got 300 off. Who knows, maybe you could've got someone to buy it now for 500. People do the darnedest things.

It's never as clear cut as that. There is risk on my side too, I'm sure I don't have to list them!

There may be someone willing to pay more, but that person may take months to come forward...."A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush!"

Yep, very aware. Especially if they try to claim the code wasn't valid after they use it.

If it all clears, hats off to you!

Well you did plus some

your old equip sold for

$612 + $400 coupon sale + next coupon

they must have a lot of cash and they will buy multiple Roamio pro's and resell but you may get a return if Tivo declines the multiple purchases

There are fees and shipping costs to factor in, but I should have covered my costs.

A TiVo rejection is not really my fault. I declared in the auction that my liability ends at the point the code is sent. Should the buyer think differently then of course there may be problems - but that is my risk to manage

I sold my XL4 and stream separately so you may have received a better amount!

If the other two sold for $400 Why are you selling these for $350?

It took a while for them to sell and I had a lot of requests at much lower level...not everyone will buy a roamio and 4 minis in one go after all.

New lower price!

I've had to drop the price to $250 as another seller with codes is wanting to stop me selling.

I don't need the money and was just trying to pay for all my TiVo purchases.

If you're interested feel free to contact me

I see you're still selling the discount codes, but it looks like a lot of others have jumped in too doing the same thing. I just threw in an offer, but I doubt that it will go anywhere. Thanks for keeping us all posted.
