    I purchased a Bolt earlier and I just called back to buy another one for another household and was offered $99 Lifetime on a Roamio Pro/Plus.

    Deal is offered to any Series 1, 2 or 3 owner with 5 years of consecutive service (according to CSR). So I purchased a Roamio Plus w/lifetime for $450 ($350 for the Plus and $100 for lifetime.) Roamio Basic would have been $400 total and Pro $600 total. This deal is not avail online. You have to call to get it. If the CSR doesn't offer it, call back and try another.

    Note 1: There has been a report from a TC member stating that he only has three years of "loyalty" and still got this deal.

    Note 2: Some Tivo Roamio owners have been able to get their current Tivo switched to a $99 lifetime plan without having to buy a new box.

    Note 3: There has been a report that the $99 lifetime offer has been extended past 10/31. Get it while you can.

    Note 4: Deal is still reported active as of 12/1.

    Now that's a great deal, especially since I would prefer a Roamio Plus over a Bolt anyways. But is it really "all Roamios"? I find it hard to believe they would sell you a Roamio OTA w/lifetime for $150. I'm guessing the $99 lifetime is just for the Plus/Pro, and maybe the base and OTA Roamio is lifetime for $200 or $250. Others who call and get this deal please report back about the details.

    Seven...
    I wonder if this offer applies to already purchased Roamios that are currently on month to month or a yearly service plan?

    Good point. Very likely not on OTA.

    I doubt it but you can try. I believe they are trying to sell off current stock of roamio.

    I just called Tivo and was told no Lifetime available on any TiVo and no deals for me at all. I'm not at 5 years yet.

    Right. What was the 10-year loyalty deal is now 5-years. I was just told that multiple purchases could be made, up to the number of DVRs currently active on your account w/ 5 or more years of service.

    Likely not, as it seems similar to earlier incentives aimed at clearing existing stock -- but it couldn't hurt to try.

    Anybody out there eligible for this offer that would like to proxy purchase a $450 Plus for me (well, my niece's place, actually, to replace the refurb base Roamio I just installed)?

    PM me if you can help a member out...

    I just picked up a Roamio Basic with Lifetime for $300 recently (a few weeks ago). That sale seems over. Didn't require any loyalty. So it seems to me the price has gone up here by $100.

    I can never remember, what is the 10 year loyalty promo?

    Retail cost for Plus/Pro + $100 Lifetime service. Or retail for basic Roamio + $200 Lifetime service.

    So this is actually cheaper than the 10 year deal than if the Pro is $600.

    huh?

    edit: prices are quoted above. This *is* the 10-year (now 5-year) loyalty deal, but reflects the lowered pre-service prices for each model.

    $300 was refurb, right? New was $400, IIRC.

    This is for new. So, essentially the basic has been extended and Plus/Pro added.

    If confirmed, this will really help out those folks who wanted a plus or pro but were short of the 10 year mark. Spread the word!

    Correct. The loyalty offer has only ever applied to NEW hardware, not renewed/refurb. So $200 for the hardware plus $200 for Lifetime service for the base model.
