I don't really recall TiVo ever having anything memorable for a Black Friday sale. And this current promotion is dated through 1/31/14.

Well, yeah, I got an email today where that was the price. I'm guessing the deal *on the Tivo* had typos in it... and I bet it will have changed when I get home!!

Oh wait, MAYBE this deal is on my Tivo HD with lifetime? I will get pictures tonight if it's still there....

Pretty sure he can't provide proof. There have been no legitimate reports around here of anyone getting a Plus w/lifetime for $600

I'd love to get in on it if there is a way, assuming I could net $400 or so on the sale of my Elite.

I have no idea what the criteria is for the offer. The deal was not offered to me but someone else. I was offered a deal to transfer my $6.95 rate from my Premiere to a Roamio Basic. Which is all I really wanted. Since whether I had a Premiere for OTA or a Roamio, I was still going to be paying the $6.95 a month. Although using a Roamio is preferred since it's the newest hardware. So when I got the deal I took it.

When you say "someone else", are you referring to mattack in this thread? He has not yet confirmed that he received an offer of $600 for a Plus w/ Lifetime

No I am not referring to mattack. Someone else was offered the deal I'm referring too.

UPDATE:

I got my Roamio Basic today from MCLogo.com.

I had some concerns after reading web reviews about people not getting their orders filled. The TiVo was shipped only in its original box, it was not doubled boxed. On the outside of the box it had a Best Buy invoice and shipping label with my address, meaning it was bought and shipped from Best Buy. Not sure what to make of that! What the ?????? Anyway, everything looks factory new and OK.

I ordered on Friday, they shipped on Monday, UPS delivered on Wednesday, registered with TiVo.com today. No problems.

Next step is dealing with Comcast and cable cards.

No price. Its just Best Buy's standard shipping invoice that contains order number, product description and ship to address. Also contained their return policy/instructions and a return label. So any problems I have with the TiVo it gets sent back to Best Buy.

Yup, I must have been imagining it/misreading it *multiple* times. I wish I had taken a snapshot of it when I *thought* it was a Roamio Plus w/lifetime for ~600. I'd jump on that price in a second.

So provide the name, stop making it a big secret. Then we can PM the crap out of that person to get the details.

Clearly there is no deal for $600 and the individual who said there is is probably just too embarrassed at this point to fess up. The deal being offered by TiVo is $750 and the fact is that while TiVo says it saves us $150, it actually represents a saving of only $50 since it's only being offered to existing TiVo owners.

Just got an email from tivo to upgrade one of my boxes to a Roamio without extending my year commitment and continuing where the old agreement left off.
for 349.00 i think it was fine and i went ahead and ordered it. My 2 Tuner premiere will be put out to pasture. Here comes the 6 tuner!

This must be the plus, right? Also are they going to charge you the same monthly service rate or the higher one associated with a Roamio?

Shipping seemed to come up as free for me. A fantastic deal (if they don't call it a mistake and cancel the order first).

I see $399.99 plus free shipping. But it's not from Amazon, it's from someplace called Etailz.

Might be able to get a Best Buy Price match out of it if they don't look closely.

Well, I went for it. $200 off was too good to pass up... I was going to use the $100 coupon from TiVo in a month or so anyway.

That "deal" is gone now. Hopefully those of you who pulled the trigger will get the Roamio!

laria,

I read the negative reviews about Etailz not shipping item and such. Amazon answered each one with the "We take responsibility for this seller" Try calling them and see what they say about making good on the sale. All they can say is no.
