The price is the same for the Roamio Plus but the Roamio Pro is $700 with the code.

Only 2,000 at that price? It's probably not true.

Either they haven't yet managed to sell a total of 2,000, or it's just a hook (untruthful marketing gimmick) they hope many will be happy to swallow...

Which do you think it is?

Those were my thoughts exactly. I just didn't want to be the first to say it.

The 2000 is just so they can stop the sale whenever they want to.

Code Tivo50 drops another $50 off the price.

I think $550 is a steal.

I had just purchased a Roamio Plus at the full $899.98 with Lifetime sub on June 28th. Obviously being within my 30 day return window I immediately jumped on the phone after seeing this and asked if any of the 2,000 units at the $599.98 price were still available and he said yes. That was all I needed to hear. I told him very nicely that they could either credit the difference or I'd be returning the unit and purchasing one at the lower price while we were on the phone. Of course, I made sure to further comment the obvious fact that doing this would only create more hassle for them and myself.

He put me on hold for just 10 minutes to speak with a supervisor, came back, and said it was a done deal. I was told credit for the difference would be applied to my CC on file the day after my 30 day return period on the unit expires and he gave me a reference number. I'm assuming they did this to make sure I didn't ask for the credit and then still decide to turn around and return the unit anyway before 30 days was up. Whatever, nice to have gotten the credit without any hassle from them.

So, if anyone else bought within the last couple of weeks at full price with Lifetime, then I'd highly suggest you get on the phone A.S.A.P. before they sell those 2,000 units and your leverage disappears.

It will not work. The $50 off code will kick out the $599 promotion.

Yeah that makes sense. If you are planning on buying a Roamio and a Mini, you should buy the Mini in a separate transaction to use the other discount code.

Well, I just placed my order using the code from spherular. It worked perfectly. I ordered a Roamio Pro with Lifetime, Mini with Lifetime, Slider Remote for Roamio, Slider Remote for Mini, and and the A/V Breakout Kit. Total with tax was $991. I had a savings (including tax savings) of $500. Delivery is scheduled for Thursday and hopefully the following Wed. I'll have FIOS installed.

Why would you want to use the breakout cable which is only composite. Unless its for something like a slingbox.

The mini's breakout cable jacks are also for component SD/HD. You must be thinking of the Roamio basic model which only has analog SD composite video and stereo audio.

Merg,

You're also a convert from DirecTV and the DBSForums, aren't you?

Yup. My one TV only has component, so I need the breakout kit for that connection until I upgrade.

Yup. Once Digital Voice was offered by FIOS, I couldn't pass up saving about $100/month compared to what I had with DirecTV. My DirecTV setup was awesome (IMHO), however, sometimes the $$$ speaks a little more...

And for the record, I was an original DirecTivo user...

This is not universally true. I just got a $50 off code via e-mail for "leaving something in my basket" and was able to apply it on top of the summer savings promo, resulting in a Roamio Plus total price of $549.98 plus tax.

Right. And now I cannot get rid of the $50 promo code, so I can't buy a Tivo. I even switched browsers and I can't get it to go away.

Thanks for the advice on something you obviously didn't try yourself.

I believe emptying your basket should delete the promo code. If you haven't done so already, try this and then click again on the link to the summer sale promotion.

So what's the deal with this one? I got one of these too. The summer sale states "Offer not valid with other offers. Entering a promo code on the next page makes this offer void." however it is clearly not invalidating the summer sale price.

Are you seeing two charges like the folks that used Tivo50 in the other thread?

Well, I didn't go ahead with the order since I'm perfectly happy with my current set-up (Premiere & Premiere Elite). I was just curious to see what would happen given the brouhaha over use of the TiVo50 coupon in that other thread you mentioned.

The e-mail from TiVo specifically offers $50 off ("Finish your order and save $50") if I complete my check-out, so I don't see any ambiguity or room for equivocation there. And it's not "coupon stacking" per se if I'm only actually entering the one coupon code ($50 off) to arrive at the end price of $550 for the Roamio Plus.
