Tivo Stream not Mini

If you're paying by AMEX anyways, get free Shoprunner shipping.
i see the Tivo Stream for $50 after rebate , where is the Mini for $50?

It appears TiVo's deals for this Holiday will be for Premiers and not Roamio's.

Just read this is likely a scam site, so I'd recommend staying away.
I placed an order with them, got a UPS tracking number, Roamio + at $320.99 paid using PayPal VIA a credit card should provide good safety, the unit is being shipped out of OH and I will get it on Dec 3, will let you know what I do get. So far it does not look like a scam, but the money did go out of the USA (according to PayPal).

Thanks for that - Printed the Amazon page, went to Best Buy (Fair City Mall, Fairfax, VA) picked up the base Roamio. Went to checkout, asked the cashier if they did price match - showed the ad, she punched it all into her register, got a manager to confirm it, I thanked him (and her), just before I wiped my VISA I asked about the gift card, she said - Oh, its right here on the screen, so - $158 total and ... a $50 Gift card!

I already ordered a WD 3TB AV-GP HDD from NewEgg - so within a few days, I'll let you know how it all works.

And thanks to ALL of you for the heads up in this thread!
Its a great time and a great reason to upgrade from my old TIVOHD!

Ordered the Plus/Gift Card combo from Best Buy online yesterday morning, and redeemed the Amex offer.

To my surprise it was delivered to my home this afternoon even though the Best Buy site claimed it would not be shipped until next week.

Activated online with the promo code.

Setting it up now (no cable card yet.)

I'm guessing you weren't able to price match if you ordered online?

Didn't even try. Figured the gift card and the Amex offer was good enough.

If I hadn't found this forum, I wouldn't have been aware of these offers. Nor the promo code for activation. And would likely have paid full price.

Will be glad to return the problematic Pace DVRs to Mediacom Cable.

Will apply the gift card to a mini when I receive it. Don't do a lot of business with Best Buy.

Must have missed that - there is a Promo code for Activation?
If anyone can point me at that, I'd really appreciate it!

The code is PLSR but is only needed if you don't get MSD, the lowest you will pay for Lifetime on the Roamio is $399 + tax in some states.

Does anyone have the $50/$100 off e-mail? I don't see the discount on tivo.com and the offer is no longer showing up on my S3; it's been replaced by a deal on the Premiere.

I recall the Roamio deal was good until sometime in January.

I'd like a copy of the email too if someone would like to provide it.

FYI, the emails were tied to an account-specific promo code so you'd probably have to call TiVo if you didn't get the email and the offer disappeared from your TiVo menu.

I didn't get a $50/$100 email, but I did get the below one after signing up for the Holiday Cash Sweepstakes. Hope this helps.

This Premiere black friday deal is pretty ****ty, imho. Roamio or Mini deals would drive sales, new customers, Premiere not so much.

I've seen very little change in the Plus/Pro, since I started watching Amazon, for about a week, usually a buck or two in total fluctuation.

Thanks for the update.

Was able to PM the Roamio Pro at Best Buy for $499.99 and get the $50 gift card. No problems. Brought in a copy of the TiVo email with the promo pricing.

I never got a promo email from TiVo, but I did see the offer on my Tivo though it's been since replaced by a crappy Premiere deal. Could someone kindly forward me a copy of the promo email?

As a few have already pointed-out, every time the promo email comes up (Besides being a non-transferrable offer):

1. It is linked to one of the recipient's SPECIFIC TSNs, contained in the email.

2. You should never give your TSN to anybody except TiVo, or your warranty provider.

3. It has a promo-code, specific to the customer, as well.

4. It has the customer's name in it.

I received mine on November 4th. Check your spam filter, if you own a Premiere product and didn't receive the email.

I would never send a copy, without blacking-out all personalized/personal information, which wouldn't result in something you could use to walk into Best Buy with.

At least one person already posted it here, with the personal info blacked-out. So, I'd look around Nov 4th. I saw somebody else post their full personalized emailed version, with all their details. I doubt that one is still around.

Thanks for reminding me about the email. I forgot about it, then couldn't find it, but I try to help when I can, so I looked. I may use mine at Best Buy.

For those buying at Costco, be aware at least in the past, their return policy doesn't count as an extended warranty. There have been complaints in the past from people who returned units and were unable to transfer lifetime.

I was hoping for some better deals today, but it seems the same.

I need another Roamio and two more Mini's. Was hoping for some super Black Friday deals but not seeing anything different.

No price matching? Why? What was the reason? I planned to go over there later today.

Edit: I just called my local bb and they're not doing it today either, though the rep I talked to says it resumes tomorrow.
