    Just to be clear, TiVo won't have to honor orders placed from the cached page. If you read the fine print on the deal it says;
    Emphasis mine.

    If they know when they took down the page then they would not, based on past experience with online sellers, be obligated to honor the deal even if you completed check out.

    MOPS would have cost me $176.xx because of the CA tax. My box from Amazon is $41.25 after the TiVo rebate, A9 discount, and GC discount.

    Just a guess, but I would expect that you would receive some type of order not processed email instead of the typical "TiVo® Store Shipment Confirmation" email.

    One would think that TiVo probably won't make a fuss for a few units and just subtract them from the next promotional program, but if the abuse becomes widespread then I would expect them to close the barn door and heard the cows back in.

    I received my shipment confirmation within 1 day of placing my order (last week), if it takes longer than that then I would become suspicious.

    ah well there you go. Not sure what I would do about a 50$ difference but I think the fact that I only charged my card 155.40 for the whole year would still tip me to the MOPS deal.

    your mileage of course varied and is a nice example of the free market in action :up:

    Of course. We still have to feed the TiVo employees, right? :)

    Has anyone who ordered using the cached page received a shipment confirmation?

    Just curious.. What GC discount are you talking about?* I was going to "correct" the $65 price because of the a9 discount, but that only gets you down to $61.61.

    You can buy gift certificate for less than the face value. The amount of discount depends on how lucky and how patient you are.

    I have received a shipping confirmation and is going to arrive here on Monday or Tuesday. I got the confirmation on Wednesday after ordering on Tuesday.
