    I emailed her on Saturday and she replied to me back with a code yesterday, just a FYI

    I just called the 800 Tivo phone number with the unique promo code which netted (before tax) $799 for Pro with Lifetime. Just wondering how good a price that is, as I'm on the fence since I purchased a Premiere a bit over 2 years ago. Would love some opinions before the 1/31 deadline.

    I plan to give the old Premiere to a friend but just wondering if I wait 6 months or a year folks think the prices will drop significantly on the Roamio Pro.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have enjoyed almost 15 years of use out of my lifetime Tivo sub. Got it in 1999 with my Series 1 and it is now on a TivoHD unit.

    With lifetime service an ew might be a good idea. Should guarantee saving money on the lifetime.

    Deadline is only 3 days away. Anyone have AP promo code that they aren't going to use? I sure would appreciate it. I would even heavily discount my 1 year old lightly used XL4 for you if you are interested. If anyone has a code they aren't going to use this may be a way of picking up an XL4 on the cheap. PM me, thanks.

    Called and told them I wanted to use my Premier instead of a Mini (which is true) and then purchase a Pro /w the code, but that I wanted Premier at $99 lifetime. They did it without a moment's pause. Might have to do with being a subscriber since 2000, but either which way, really nice rep and went smoothly.

    I tried this about 5 or 6 times wiping my cookies and cache each time and always got the same price as the snail mail promo. Then I decided to email Michaela. Her response asked me if I was getting the MSD. I wasn't and I have gone through the process again and never saw any way to ask or apply for the MSD.

    Where is it?

    OK, disregard this, I called the number from the promo and the MSD was added knocking another $100 of the price. My pro will get here this week.

    This just got even better. After placing my order, I got the confirmation email showing a price $30 higher that what was quoted to me on the phone. They are now giving me a $100 refund making my final price $70 less than it was.

    So your Premier was on a monthly plan or did it have a Lifetime subscription?

    I have a series 1 and a TiVoHD with lifetime. I wondering if there's anyway for me to swap the Lifetime.

    The history is a long one. I've never had lifetime. I started with a S1, eventually added a S2, swapped the S1 to an HD, and then swapped the S2 to a Premier

    Started with S1 - monthly

    Added S2 - monthly (this made S1 & S2 both a multi-service discount)

    Added an HD, removed the S1 (this swapped the S1 subscription to the HD)

    Added a Premier, removed the S2 (this swapped the S2 subscription to the Premier) and sort of threatened to close the HD down. When I did this, they grandfathered the HD into a $7 rate. The Premier was at $14/mo.

    Today, when I called I just flat asked for the $99 lifetime for the Premier. They said yes and mentioned "because the Premier is over 5 years". Not sure that it really matters or not. The Premier is obviously not 5 years itself, but the subscription was.

    They also claimed I'll be able to transfer the $7 rate from the HD to the Roamio. I'm a little skeptical of this, but will try.

    I ordered a Pro this morning and Tivo is going to roll-over my Premiere annual subscription renewal that I just paid last week. They tried to push the mini, but I wasn't interested. However, when they offered to Lifetime the Premiere I just upgraded for $99, I jumped on it. The only problem is I already have a TivoHD Lifetime and I don't need a 3rd DVR. Meh, I'll just keep it as a spare and record OTA. Happy Camper.

    Ebay seems to show something around $200+ for the TivoHD /w lifetime. So you could recoup some costs.

    I wonder if people who already have a Roamio didn't get the offer.. GRR.

    I have a Roamio and got the AP offer. I got the Roamio with the service transfer offer that expires 1/31.

    A few days ago, I posted this:

    I decided to try again tonight. I was probably going to take that deal if they offered it, but I was also thinking I was fine with sitting tight and waiting for a few months (or another hardware generation).

    This time I had better luck.

    The CSR didn't seem familiar with the AP code. He asked for it to "see what they could do." The CSR and a supervisor couldn't get the code to work, and the CSR pointed out that the AP code requires new service. But the CSR said they'd sell me a Plus for $325, transfer the service, and give me $25 back in a couple of days after the order went through. So I took that.

    I also extracted an offer of $99 lifetime for my HD. Not sure I'll follow through on that, but it's in the system if I want it.

    Hold times were crazy, both for me and the CSR when talking to the supervisor.

    JolDC was kind enough to give me his code for free. I just ordered a Roamio Pro for my wife and two Minis and saved about $200 compared to Amazon.

    Tivo phone sales are very busy lately, but I got through after a 20 minute wait. Apparently, I will be able to get my $6.95 MSD plan transferred to a new $399 Tivo Roamio Pro. They are also going to do me a solid and give me lifetime on my 1 year old Premier 4 box for $199.

    As an impulse purchase I got a $25 mini with $149 product lifetime. That seems standard. I'm not even sure what I'm going to do with all the Tivos I have now. I basically only use my one - don't use the bedroom one but I guess I'll put the mini in the home office.

    If anyone has a spare, I would be grateful if you could share it with me via PM. I am trying to upgrade my old s2 single tuner TiVo. Getting a new Roamio (along with a new HDTV) would be the best post Christmas gift ever! Thanks everyone.

    Called TiVo this morning but they couldn't offer anything better than than the e-mail existing customer offer that went out earlier in the month which translated to a Pro+Lifetime for $900. The agent mentioned the Advisor Panel offer but said that that the one-time codes have to come from the caller as they don't actually have any.

    Guess I'll continue to hope somebody can offer me a code. Pretty please?
