    I was going to get it from Amazon.com as the price has fallen to $278 with free super saver shipping, but it wont' ship until the 17th, and I need it for a Sept. 11th install.

    I mean, I know I can just pay for shipping, but I'd like to see if I can easily avoid certain costs, or add in discounts. Obviously if it comes to it I'll just buy it locally and pay sales tax.

    I know the tivo community store had a coupon code running, and free shipping. Any idea if it'll ship quickly?

    Are there any coupon codes (10% off $199, for example, is one recent one I'm aware of) to be used for a local pickup at Circuit City or Best Buy?

    Thanks!

    I got mine from Costco for $279 last week with free shipping. I ordered it on a Saturday and had it the following Friday.

    BB generally has a few in stock at every store (at least around here).

    A local retailer would be the best option, what with all the ongoing problems with these two Tivo on the market now, would make an online purchase saving not worth the offset expense of returning the device...

    I was at Costco last wknd, and saw a huge stack up front for $279. Not sure if this falls under their lifetime warranty, or at least their concierge service, I'd go with Costco just for the peace of mind.

    I got mine on a great deal from Circuit City about a month ago though for much cheaper.

    Buy it here. $279 with the coupon, no sales tax or shipping fees. Amazon will charge sales tax.

    Depends on where he lives. Amazon has never charged me sales tax.

    (And I bet the TCF store charges sales tax to people who live in the state the store is based in. (NY?))

    I'm in PA. Philly. Amazon never charges me sales tax. Where do the tivo community store items ship from? I'm just gonna hit Circuit City or Best Buy (if I can do 10% off) today, or tivocommunitystore if it'll ship out today via a method that'll get here sooner rather than later (UPS ground from the east coast will get here within a day or two)

    You could sign up for the free Amazon Prime 1 month trial. It gives you free 2-day shipping or over night for 3.99

    Already did it. Last year. :)

    However I'm happy to "work with" someone who has such a trial. ;)

    That's usually the case with Amazon. They always make it seem like it will take 10 days so that you will pony up the cash. I always take the free shipping option (when available) and it normally comes pretty quickly.
