TiVo Stream possibly $79 at BB with coupon and MC

I saw this on slickdeals.

Coupon here.

It doesn't list TiVo so you could possibly save $50 off the Stream and get one for $79.99. It does list set top boxes as an exclusion so it might not work., but it is in store only so we won't know until someone tries.

You could get a Premiere 4 for 149 since it is on sale for 199 right now

It says it excludes set top boxes though so don't know if the Premiere would work.

Might be a way to get a hard drive for what it ought to sell for instead of the post flood price.

Went to Best Buy tonight and used the $50 off on a stream, but sign by the register said "Correction" and went on to say coupon valid only January 21.

So the coupon is valid only January 21 - January 21? I.e. today only?

It looks like they changed it because it got out in the wild. They hosted it on their site, but apparently it was only emailed to certain Reward members. Unlike previous deals though it wasn't tied to anyone's Reward membership, the old coupons would have your member ID on it.

Went to BB tonight and picked up the Stream for $79 +tax. Thanks. Went back in and tried to grab an XL4, but the system didn't apply the $50 off. Manager tried to say that BB wanted to see the email where the person got it. On top of that, he denied it as being a set top box, which it is. But grateful for the Stream. Now I just have to pick up a Premiere. Probably will get a Premiere 4 and upgrade the drive myself.

I wanted to try and use that coupon on a Premiere 4, but I didn't have time to make it to the Magnolia store (its about 10 miles further for me). Instead, I used that coupon to get a 2TB drive for $59!

BTW, I know its too late now, but the way it read it was only supposed to be Sony Set-top boxes that were excluded. I'm sure the managers probably tried to interpret it the other way, but all in all, the coupon was a fiasco for Best Buy and the way it was handled will hurt them for quite some time. Might be the final nail in the coffin for them. Sad really. Since Circuit City went, it is really one of the last B&M stores around.
