    Just got an email from TiVo offering to transfer lifetime from a Premiere to a Bolt for $99.

    TiVo BOLT

    It says to use the TSN of the qualified unit as the promo code to get the deal.

    So, I have a Premiere XL 4 w/lifetime up for sale over in the ebay section. Would I do better doing the upgrade myself then selling the new Bolt?

    A few months ago I tried to get $99 lifetime on a Premiere. I was told it wasn't available. This may be why.

    Does the old Tivo become a boat anchor? OR can it still be used to some degree?

    Minimum cost for a Bolt with this deal is $300 + tax. Look on ebay, are they going for more then that?

    And unlike last time, the qualifying TSN/promo code(s) are provided in the email from Tivo.

    Yes, the old TiVo is supposed to become a boat anchor (I was thinking doorstop, myself) after the transfer is competed. Of course, my Humax S2 was the donor unit for their offer in April and it still appears in my account as a unit in good standing (although they're not offering to transfer that unit again - first thing I checked).

    I've got an S3 OLED that was supposed to be deactivated in the spring deal, it's still kicking, so YMMV

    I took advantage of this to replace the last Premiere in my fleet that was doing duty at the cottage, this will let cottage folks stream on the deck which will be cool.

    Nope, you can get the transfer deal on a renewed Tivo Bolt for $149 plus $99 transfer = $249 Just took them up on the offer for a Premiere that just died last week. What timing!

    I don't see a refurb offered on the page I linked to. How did you get the refurb?

    Figures. I just upgraded my 2nd Premier's HD yesterday.

    Also not a fan of white so would have to get the 3tb in black.

    Dang it, why do I never get these email offers? I have a Premiere XL4 that's been phoning home to TiVo for years now and should qualify. When I put the TSN in the promo code field it says not valid. Ugh.

    Tempting... my Tivo is on loan to my BiL in Florida. We currently don't watch cable / OTA, just streaming. So don't have a need... but the want is strong :)

    Call in, maybe they will offer it over the phone if you didn't get the email or they could maybe explain why yours doesn't qualify.

    Already in the hold queue. Not holding out a lot of hope, but I'm really sick of the slow Premiere interface, so giving it a try.
