    If I go and buy a series 3 box on craig's list, can I still get tivos $100 off lifetime sub? Or do I have to buy through tivo?

    Are their any other offers I would be eligible for?

    Tivo Service is the only discount you can get, provided the 1st Tivo still connects to the service. Monthly is 9.95, year $99, lifetime $299

    Still wouldn't hurt to call TiVo. If it is for a TiVo hd they might be willing to give you the upgrade price. Wouldn't hurt to call.

    If it's a grandfathered Series 1 (January 2000?) you can have it transferred to a new TiVo for free... call TiVo and ask.

    If you can find a used lifetime unit (series 1/2/3) and add them to your account you will get an offer for an upgrade discount on a new premier unit ($30 off Premiere, $50 off Premier XL), plus a discount on lifetime ($200 off)

    I used this deal when purchasing my premiere (I had a series 1 unit with lifetime) A few months later after getting a series2 with lifetime off craigslist I again had the same offer.

    I don't know for sure, but I suspect if the old lifetime unit has already been used by the previous owner for this discount you may not receive the offer.
