Upgrading to Roamio and trans annual plan

Called Tivo and asked about options since the 2-tuner premier I have will auto renew in a month on the $129 yearly plan.
She offered me a plus for $339.00 and offered to transfer the annual plan to it.
I had the premier for 3 years already.
I don't do lifetime because I have not stayed with the same cable provider in the past (Comcast/directtv/uverse/Comcast).
My promo with Comcast ends in another 16 months.

I will call back later to see if I can lifetime the unit for $99.

Not sure if you really call this a deal, but I noticed Sam's Club is now stocking and selling TiVo Roamio Plus 6 Tuner DVR item#1893 for $348.

I was at a local club here in Minneapolis and noticed a new display with them on a pallet.

Here is the website:
http://www.samsclub.com/sams/tivo-6-...rod12290525.ip

I think they just got them in.

Good Luck. I am really interested in getting a Roamio. This might be the deal for me as a first time Tivo user.

That is a deal, the survey panel code was $299 regularly $399. I wonder if TiVo will offer special service prices because its a Costco TiVo.

Just upgraded from Premier to Roamio - I think a very good price

I was paying $12.95/month for my Premier. Waited until very last day of their Roamio sale (If I recall it was Jan 31). They were advertising the Roamio for $175. After some dickering, I got the Roamio for $150, free shipping, no tax in Ohio, and they dropped my monthly charge to $9.95 - permanently.

I think that was a pretty good deal. I pulled the trigger when they dropped the monthly charge to $9.95.

I have 3 codes for the TiVo sales training specials and maybe 3 more. I'm not sure what to do with them. It seems that people got mad on these forums with someone who tried selling them. I don't need them as I already have a Pro and 2 minis. I'll probably list the actual products on eBay and then drop ship them. Any thoughts or ideas?

The problem with listing the actual products on eBay is that you don't know which combination of actual products people want to use the codes on. I wouldn't be deterred by a couple crybabies on the forum that whined about how much the other guy was asking for the codes (even though he sold some of them in auctions and others in "best offer" listings).

I'd auction the codes on eBay. They're worth what they're worth.

Midson,

Where is your local Costco? I was just wondering if it was anywhere near local to me. Las Vegas or Northern California... Thanks...

Would you be interested in sharing a code? I'd like to buy a Roamio Pro and 3 minis with lifetime. Not sure I want to deal with the people selling codes on eBay.

Thanks,
Mike

My Premiere renews at $129 on May 18. I need to find a Roamio deal before then so I can get a new box+lifetime and not re-sub the 2 tuner Premiere. Are there any current deals? I was hoping there'd be something somewhere for Easter.

Call TiVo. They will probably give you $25 off a basic and let you transfer your subscription to the new machine. After that, others might pipe in on canceling your Premiere to get a $99 lifetime deal on it and then sell it on eBay.

I have a March Madness $50 off coupon code for anyone wanting it for a new Roamio, it expires April 28th PM me or email me at my user ID @gmail.com

I have a $75 off code too but I'm saving it just in case a used Roamio I just bought doesn't work out, if I end up not needing it it will offer it too.

Also, believe that someone posted awhile back that Bestbuy will match most coupon discounts too if you want to buy locally, as I recall someone applied the coupon code while checking out on Tivo. Com, printed the screen and took it to their Bestbuy were they price matched it.

Email reply sent. I included both $50 and $75 off codes! Let me know if don't use them or if you use one of them, let me know which one you use so I can pass the other along to someone else before they expire.

If you call Tivo directly you should get the Mini's for $50 each per the last I heard esp if you buy lifetime and you will get free shipping. That's the best offer I have seen for the Mini but you have to call and ask as it not an advertised offer. Anything better better requires buying the eBay auction coupon codes which cancels any true savings.

great, I'll call later today! so I guess If I buy 2 for $400 it would be the same as paying $50 on ebay and paying $350 for them. i'll just cut out the middle man. it would save me $25 if I end up buying a 3rd one though.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I have been renting a TiVo Premiere from RCN for the past few years and I have decided to cut the cord and buy a TiVo Roamio.

Would someone be kind enough to send me a $75 off coupon to purchase the Roamio?

Thanks in advance!

ok, just got off the phone with them and they said that $50 deal wasn't good anymore. even put me on hold to get a manager to try to do it for me. couldn't do it. I even said I would buy 2 right now if i could get it for that price. didn't happen.

guess I'll try to bid on an ebay auction to see if I can get it a lot cheaper than $50. or maybe someone on here that can do it will see this and could help me out.

Here is one for anyone who wants it:

Congratulations on making a big shot!
Below is your unique code for $75 savings off a new TiVo Roamio(TM), Roamio Plus or Roamio Pro. You must use this code before April 28, 2014 and it is not valid with other promotions.
Your unique code is:
YF0404K2U8
Go to www.tivo.com or call 1-877-289-8486 to redeem your code.
Thanks,
The TiVo Team

That's rotten! Yea, the only other option I guess is check out those eBay sellers or perhaps wait as TiVo seems to constantly have promotion of some sort every month, they might be starting something new for May once the coupon codes from March madness expires on the 28th.

Another thing too is try calling more than once and at a different time of the days, it's a common result that different calls get different results. I was told a month ago that a used Premeire I have which had been unsubscribed for awhile wasn't eligible for the $99 lifetime upgrade offer that other have been receiving so I just re-subscribed it for monthly with no commitment. I called last Saturday to cancel it and was offered the $99 upgrade to lifetime! Doesn't hurt to be persistent. Doesn't hurt to be persistent, might also look around here and post a few requests for codes as most of them have expiration dates and they might go cheap when the dates get close.
