    I was able to use my price protection from the Discover card I used to purchase the Roamio Plus on the 10yr loyalty deal.
    Amazon had the Roamio Plus for $299 last week. I filled out the form and just got the notice my claim was approved and Discover is crediting me the $100.00 difference.
    I now have a Lifetime Roamio plus w/ lifetime and a Slide remote for $424.00 including tax and shipping!
    Check the credit card you used for the purchase and you may have the same luck!

    Dude that's sweet! I'll have to check mine. I wonder how long you have to file a claim?

    Depends on the card and program--with Chase Freedom VISA it's for ads within 90 days of the original purchase date (pretty generous, if you ask me). Am looking into this as well. :)

    If you get the Roamio Plus for $399/lifetime $199 in your cart on tivo.com, my advice would be to jump on it immediately. I was the first to report it a few days ago, I dilly dallied around and tried to add the pro model to the cart and the $199 lifetime went away. I was never able to successfully get it back into the cart :(

    Yeah, you could always get the Plus deal and then just upgrade the hard drive to 3TB yourself. Super easy plug and play!

    My Roamio Plus with the Military deal just showed up a little while ago. Running through the setup process as I type. Cable connection isn't due till next week but I'm going to call to see if they can move it up. They set the time/date that I requested because the weather is hinky and I wasn't sure when the Roamio would show up.



    I'll give it a bit before calling though to make sure everything is working fine except the cable tv service.



    Then to change to an annual payment plan I just go to the TiVo.com site and 'manage' the subscription???

    I just got the 10-year loyalty offer for a new Roamio Pro+Lifetime at $500+tax so it's still out there.

    The sales agent was really helpful. Yea Tivo! Yea me!

    I think you mean the Roamio Plus.

    I need a couple of the Mini's so I hope they go on sale again for 99. If they do go on sale again for 99 and they are the old version, do you think it's worth the extra 50 bucks for the second version?

    In most cases no, but if you want the Mini behind something such that the IR remote will not work all the time, then yes, the new RF Mini would be the correct choice, it also a little faster for some things you do.

    I couldn't get a deal on a Roamio that is economically feasible for us, so I took the intermediate step of upgrading the Premiere to a 2TB drive and will plan to convert it to lifetime for $199 since TiVo's going to make me wait 11 months to get it for $99. So it looks like I'll be stuck with the TiVoHDs for a bit longer.

    Today I called TiVo Sales and tried to qualify for the 10-year loyalty deal on a Roamio Plus w/ Lifetime. I've been with TiVo since 2001, but originally as a DirecTV user. At some point after 2001, my TiVo account was moved out of TiVo and under DirecTV. I switched to FiOS and a new TiVo HD after moving in 2008. Unfortunately, there was some question about TiVo being able to tell if I had been a continuous customer long enough to qualify for this promo (which they confirmed was still active). No luck with the Sales Rep I spoke with, as they can't see account history related to DirecTV users. As if I ever asked my account holder to be switched :-(

    My 2008 TiVo HD started an endless Powering Up reboot cycle yesterday, so I took that as a sign from a higher power that it was time to get a Roamio. I went ahead and contacted spherular on his Ebay auction page and just purchased one of his discount codes. My order is placed now with TiVo and I am expecting delivery of my new Roamio Plus w/ Lifetime this Thursday. Thank you Spherular!

    You'll really enjoy the Roamio Justin. I came from two premiers to a Roamio Pro and really love it.

    Just out of curiosity, any reason you didn't go ahead with the Pro for 100 bucks more? I went that route because I was planning on getting a 3TB drive anyway and the 100 dollars to move up to the pro was cheaper than buying a 3TB drive.

    Enjoy your Roamio!

    The tivo.com page has their March madness game up. You can get up to $100 off with a coupon code that you "win" on the game.

    I got a code that is good for $50 off a Roamio DVR or $100 off a Roamio Plus or Pro. (It tried it against a Roamio OTA and it says the code is not valid for that model. It also doesn't work on refurbs.)
