Cool, just grabbed one. I had been thinking of getting another but was turned off as the best price I could find earlier this week on the old model was $120.

I bought 2 yesterday. I had just gotten a new Roamio Plus in July and in some searching noticed that Wood had had the Mini refurbs at that same price back in February. So I had been hoping that offer would come back. They are the original model with the IR only remote, but I can get 2 of those refurbs for the price of a single of the new model.

Anyone receive their Woot Mini yet?

I ordered mine on the day the deal went live. I didn't get any shipping notification until today. My refurb Roamio came in like 2 days. Is it normal for Woot to take 6 days to even ship it? USPS is saying another 3-5 days for delivery.

Just curious if anyone already got their Mini?

I also ordered the same day, went through Amazon, is supposed to be delivered today, but maybe not until Friday.

For some reason, UPS gave it to local PS and there have been no updates since.

Ironic that the mini (with RF) I ordered through Best Buy yesterday (Amazon price match) was supposed to be delivered Friday has already been delivered.

I got my Woot Mini a few days ago. It took like 5-6 days from the order till it arrived.

Mine was just delivered. So it took 7 days which seems like an eternity for a D.C. person. I am used to same day delivery from Amazon.

FYI

The Mini on Amazon is now still $118.49 but for some reason no tax at this time.

Depends on who is selling it. If it's a company not in your state, then no tax. These days Amazon has been forced to charge tax in many states, regardless of their presence.

As an FYI, B&H has had it for that price for a little while now. That seems to be the ongoing holiday price.

I bought one on Amazon for ~$118. I'm glad they include the service now. It should have been that way since the beginning. I paid the ~$300 in service fees for the first two minis that I bought.

Question How Often Does CamelCamelCamel Check Prices?

Looks like once every 5 hours is the best they can achieve (at least back in Dec 2011). So a price could drop for 04:59 and return and not even be noticed. 249,380 different price checks take time.

How Our Price Checking System Works - CamelCamelCamel Blog

I used FrozenWarrior (once per day) before CamelCamelCamel so I'm glad that I found it. The history is much better (longer and detailed).

Gee, I thought that I got a good deal on my Tivo Mini at $118.45 at Amazon. But that doesn't compare to the prices that some of you guys got. Although I think that you all got the first edition while my mini is the 2nd edition. Still it was a good buy.

Hi. Is there a model number to reference to make sure the Amazon Mini includes lifetime service?

No, they're all Lifetime, now, if I understand correctly. (believe I do) But I expect you'd want to get the Mini v2 (TCDA93000) if you're looking to pair it with a new Roamio. (see here)

But you'll be totally covered if you buy "New," and "ships from and sold by Amazon.com." (link) Or use this Amazon price to price-match at your local Best Buy, providing they have inventory of the Mini v2.
