$399. Standard pricing across the board. Get it from Tivo, might be sales tax free and cheaper shipping.

Call ElectronicsExpo and ask a sales rep for their best price before you buy elsewhere. I got my Elite from them last month for $360 and a Premiere for $50, plus shipping of about $9 apiece.

usually amazon is the best place to buy TiVo's. However they haven't seemed to really gotten synched up with the recent elite price drop.

With a 10% Best Buy coupon you can get it for $360 plus tax. I picked up my second Elite last week from BestBuy using a 10% off coupon. Then added the four year warranty for $70 and got 18 months no interest financing.

I was going to get the extended warranty from TiVo but I figured with the longer warranty from BestBuy it will help if/when I sell the Elites to upgrade when TiVo launches a new box.

Didn't think about the 10% off coupon, I'll have to grab one of those!

Where can I find a 10% coupon for BBY? I got my Elite two weeks ago from them and couldn't find a 10% coupon anywhere. They used to be so plentiful.

I got mine from abt.com when they briefly had it for $360 shipped, no taxes.

Right now it's back to $400 and backordered, but they could do it again sometime.

They sent me one, yes only one, in the mail last month. It was a gigantic sized coupon and had my name on it as well. They used to send out a package with several small sized coupons regularly, but I haven't seen those in a while.

I was going to wait for a 12% coupon until I realized that they aren't plentiful like they used to be. So I pulled the trigger on a second Elite before the coupon expired..
