    Just bought mine from Amazon. Also decided to pick up a few extra accessories, since this is the first tivo I will own:


    Wi-Fi Adapter

    Seagate Free Agent Pro 750GB eSata drive

    HDMI to DVI cable

    I am so glad I found this forum, and was able to learn so much about the Tivo before I decided to buy it. :)

    Just got my S3 from Amazon for $376.95 after rebates. I received a $30 instant rebate when I signed up for their VISA card in addition to the $200 rebate from TIVO. Their card has no annual fee and I never carry a balance on a charge card so I thought that was a good deal.

    Just ordered mine from Amazon this morning. $607 Shipped.

    Will set it up on arrival, D* runs thru 6/10 - will suspend/cancel D* and then sell off the HR10-250 to help pay for the 3 yr pre-paid Tivo sub.

    Gonna go strictly HD OTA and free myself of bad content and high monthly TV bills.

    With a $407 effective cost and no more D* bill, the S3 pays for itself after only 7 months and no more TV bill for 2 1/2 years. :up:

    Just ordered from Buy.com.... had a couple of coupons that brought the total down to $585.89 out the door, Which will bring the total down to less than half what I paid for the first one ($800)

    I have a lifetime service giftcard that I've been holding onto until the S3's came down in price.

    Question is can I use the Lifetime service giftcard with this rebate offer. Probably going to buy from Amazon.

    I jumped on this deal at the Tivo Community Store. Free Shipping and no tax.

    Wow good deal, they beat Amazon's price.

    I'm going to go ahead and jump on this too and return the welcome back $499 TiVo S3 I bought less than 30 days ago and save myself $150.

    Has anyone tried purchasing the TiVo S3 from Circuit City or Best Buy for $599? I would like to purchase from either store since they have the 0% deal on their respective credit cards. I checked the Best Buy site and they are selling the device for $799, while Circuit City is doing the same but quoting a $599 price after rebate. With TCF selling for $599 perhaps these electronics store will match the price. Just want to know if anyone has been successful.

    Amazon beats them if one applies for their VISA card. That drops the Amazon price to $377.

    If someone can get Best Buy to price match to $599 excluding the rebate then it would be cheaper. Since its Memorial day, BB sent out coupons to customers for this weekend to receive an additional 10% off or 12% off for RewardsZone members.

    We ship from both Michigan and Florida - those are the only two states where we must charge sales tax.

    Plus Tax. :D

    I'd pay ~$12 "savings" in the tax/coupon difference personally to not have to wait in line to speak with a blue-shirted drone on Memorial Day.

    I'm gong to price match at BB or CC using Costco's price. The times I've tried, BB will not accept a coupon with a PM. However, CC will give back 10% of the dif back ($20).

    Anyone have experience with DVRUpgrade? They have a 400GB S3 for $699-200 (not sure about tax or shipping). Extra $100 for another built-in 150GB seems reasonable. Would you go this route or go with Amazon/TCS and wait to add external SATA drive later?

    What? I'm a Reward Zone member, and I didn't get any coupons. Go figure.
