Note that he got that deal under the "10+ Year Loyalty Program," so you didn't miss-out on anything, as a new customer.

It's spelled-out better in this FatWallet post. (which, ironically, refers back to this site, most likely, but without any specific credit)

Yes...no worries... I actually feel pretty good about the deal I got, given the fact that I am a new customer (as a side note, I don't feel like a new customer since I have been a TiVo user for well over a decade, but through my DirecTV relationship)...

My deal was a Tivo Roamio Pro (Recertified) with lifetime for $599.99 and a free TiVo Slider Pro remote...

This is really temping if true. My first Tivo Series 2 was purchased on 4/3/2005 and is still on my account since it was a lifetime service plan.

$500 for a Tivo Roamio Plus with Lifetime would be a good deal.

My 10 Year Loyalty Deal:

Roamio Basic (Refurb) + Lifetime = $350

I already own a Tivo Stream, so I'll keep on using that. No need to pay an extra $75 for functionality that I have. The HDD size is of no importance since I'll be dropping in a 3 TB drive ASAP.

Tivo refurbs are seemingly taken out of one box and put into another (with a new remote), there's little to no checking going on. You have a chance of getting a crap box as well as one that works, in other words, based on many member reports here. But no worries, they'll ship another one if you get a bad one.
