Question Series 3 trade in offers & options?

I currently have 2 dual tuner Premieres (1 monthly, 1 lifetime) & a lifetime S3 (OLED) unit. I recently got a hold of another working S3 (OLED) TiVo that has no service on it and trying to figure out what I can maybe do with it in terms of upgrade offers.

I'm seeing various offers here telling about transferring an S3 subscription to a new Premiere. Or TiVo offering a lifetime on the S3 for $99 if I get a Premiere 4. Can't remember it exactly, but in the past, I think TiVo offered trade-ins programs for these S3s if they weren't working where I actually send them the unit and they send me some sort of replacement (either S3 or an S4 w/ additional money)

My monthly Premiere unit comes up for renewal here in May & I am possibly interested in replacing it with a Premiere 4 so am intrigued by some of these offers. Trying to figure out what options I have. Any suggestions, recommendations or opinions on what I could do or a direction to possibly go here that involves this newly acquired Series 3?

Call up TiVo. AFAIK, the "transfer" of lifetime service to a fixed TiVo was almost always for the SAME model.. unless that model was no longer made. But the dead one obviously would already need lifetime on it.
