The ebay listing is for $69, what exactly am I buying? How does this work?!
You will receive a one time use promo code that is redeemed on TiVo.com from there you can order the products you want at the prices listed.
Hope that helps.
Think I will bite the bullet and give them a try. Will update the results
Sent you an offer/message through eBay.
However, I recommend going to his web page and buying it for $49.
Just to tell you my story very quickly. I bought a Roamio Plus from Best Buy for $310 (matched Amazon.com). I had a $30 gift card from Best Buy that I have had for 2 years so it was advantageous to get it from Best Buy since ultimately, it only cost me $280 (plus tax, $302 total). I had PLANNED to use the code PSLR to get $100 off the lifetime subscription when I activated it. However, that code has recently stopped working. So, I contacted Tivo support and begged them for a code. Nope, it is $499 - period. So, my Roamio PLus and lifetime subscription was going to cost me $800! I had seen the ad on ebay for the $69 coupon to get the same setup for $599. I really didn't beleive it so I googled "tivo ebay $69" and landed on this thread. A few people said it worked so I checked out his web page. It was $49 there, so I decided, what the heck! I bought it and within 10 minutes I had the code emailed to me. I went to Tivo and it DID take the $300 off. Since I saved so much, I went ahead and added the $39 3-year service plan.
Hope this helps someone else.
Edit: Meant to add that the unit I bought from Best Buy will go back since I had never opened it (thank goodness!)
What an amazing deal! I just ordered a Roamio Pro with lifetime using a code from spherular. I went to spherular's website, as the codes are less expensive than on ebay.
I was going to buy a Plus from Amazon and upgrade the drive myself, but with this deal the lifetime pays for itself after 2 years, and the price difference between Pro and Plus is the same as buying a 3tb drive.
Is the promo code combinable with the multi-service discount, shaving another $100 off the end price?
According to the spherular website, no.
The multi-service discount is always applicable when you have a DVR in 2 rooms (or more). I would simply buy them at separate time to be sure.
Also, unless you already have the other DVR, I think you would come out better off buying two of the discount codes and just buying 2 different DVRs with lifetime on each. I'm not sure why that wouldn't work.
My bad - missed the FAQ page link there.
Glad I could help!
I'm sure it's been asked and answered, but do the promo codes expire? and if so how long are they good for?
The codes do not expire, but it is a long-standing promotion that TiVo have the right to cancel. I always advise people to use the code as soon as they possibly can.
Any other questions let me know
For anyone interested, the codes now allow you to buy a Roamio OTA with lifetime for just $300 - the unit is free and the lifetime is all you are paying for.
Feel free to subscribe to our latest mailing and read all about it.
The OTA unit is no longer available for $300. Thanks for all your interest and sorry it was so short lived!
Bought my codes from Spherular on June 8 and UPS was delivering my Roamio Plus and Mini on the 11th.
Next to decide if I "really" want to keep paying Comcast or cut the cord completely and get another Roamio.
Anyway, thanks Spherular!!
Dear spherular, can your codes be used in combination with the current "Hot Summer Sale" to increase the available discount?
I'm expecting not, but I wanted to confirm. Thanks!
