Tivo Premiere for $149 and XL for $299

On Electronics Expo website, you can get Tivo Premiere for $149 and Tivo Premiere XL for $299 and I think you can get another few dollars off if you use the Coupon DEALSOFAMERICA

http://www.electronics-expo.com/index.php?page=seek&id[m]=&id[q]=tivo+premiere&x=0&y=0

How low can it go??? And I paid full price

Premiere for $95 shipped

I just bought a new Premiere through Amazon (Electronics Expo again) for $95 shipped.

Had to click on the "See Price in Cart" to notice the deal.

The coupon brings the price down to $149.35 with shipping. I don't need another one and am almost tempted to buy one anyway!

Wow, even for those with a current Lifetime unit via TiVo website new Premiere + $200 Lifetime service = $470 total (not counting shipping). Amazon deal + $300 Lifetime service is now $395 including shipping! Before this all other deals I had seen were more than buying via TiVo and the $200 Lifetime service offer.
Guess Premiere hardware is not selling very briskly which is not too surprising.

Now I'm tempted for the Amazon deal...

EDIT: Couldn't resist and placed an order just in case Amazon was going to run out of stock. I will have to see if I will bother activating service on it yet or not.

Awesome deal. Placed an order as well, couldn't pass it up. Wish I could somehow transfer my S3 lifetime sub for $200.

How are they selling these for less than 1/2 off everyone else? Has anyone bought and received one yet?

PLSR code "should" still work to save $100 on lifetime.

Can that be used in addition to MSD discount of $100? i.e. With MSD lifetime goes to $300. Are you saying that potentially then applying PLSR code would further bring it down to $200? I would think not but haven't tried.

Don't know how/if it would work against MSD....

I ordered one from Amazon for $95 delivered.

I am not sure how that is possible.

Wow, big difference. I hope they will honor placed orders before the "correction". The $94.51 charge from amazon.com payments is already on my credit card...

I think somebody messed up, the price I paid is not the amount you save

I bought it, I wonder if they will honor it.

Amazon frequently makes changes to their prices (sometimes significant ones). I've never had a problem with them honoring a particularly good deal. Actually, Amazon is pretty awesome.

Except this is not Amazon but a third-party retailer though Amazon Marketplace. My guess is you'll see an apology email and a credit to your card shortly.

It's funny I am tempted, but it would depend on what I could get for my current upgraded HD unit. Of course it is my only remaining TiVo with an upgrade offer.

It's still $136.16 on the electronics expo website itself using the link in the OP and that coupon code, but I can't get it to let choose shipping, only store pickup. I can, however, get it to show shipping on a Premiere XL.

Actually the charge hasn't went thru yet. It's only a hold as of now.

A word of note/warning. Electronics Expo is NOT Amazon. It's an Amazon merchant. Amazon doesn't stand behind it, not that I have any experience with Electronics Expo.

On my recommendation, my buddy just bought a Mitsubishi DLP HDTV from "Amazon," before I could look at the deal. It was an Amazon merchant which said they will not handle any problems., His new TV was DOA and he was on own and couldn't use it for over 6 weeks while Mitsu's on-site service the chased down parts, and in the end it turned that a cable had come loose.

Buying from an Amazon merchant is about the same as buying from a random web store site, in fact, when I'm going to, I just search for the site and save a few bucks which is the commission that Amazon would get. Check the merchant on http://www.reselleratings.com

Yes, I am aware of that as I buy most of my electronics via Amazon and usually only do so if Amazon is the seller. However this $95 deal was too good to pass up. I won't be too surprised if it doesn't actually materialize, though I've had no indications yet that it won't as Amazon lists order as shipped and temporary charge on credit card is still there and no "apology" email.

I've ordered things before from amazon that looked like the deal was too good to be true and then subsequently received and email saying it was a mistake and the order was cancelled.

So yes, sometimes you don't get the deal when it's a mistake.

I hate it when these 3rd party sellers don't give you any tracking numbers or even courtesy emails with updates about the order. I've never ordered through Electronics Expo so who knows if they do any of that... Probably Amazon stating it as shipped is simply that their portion of fulfilling the order is done.

I would prefer that my order go though the system without scrutiny.

Therefore, I WILL NOT ASK THE SHIPPING STATUS!

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
