    Clever negotiation, to tie the remote to the warranty purchase (and to avoid reference to the "10-year" deal)--good for you!

    Interestingly enough, he did say "We used to call this the 10 year deal, but we have changed our marketing for it recently". So maybe the 10 years isn't the qualifier anymore, but something similar instead. In any case, I am just glad that I had it offered, and on the first try.

    Thanks for posting that the 10-year loyalty deal may no longer be just 10 years! Good for people to know (and try).

    Roamio OTA & TiVo Stream, with no upfront hardware fees, for $20/mo and two year commitment:

    https://www.tivo.com/aereo_ota_offer
    Code: ZG0600BHQX

    Not sure if that is a one time use code, or infinite.

    For what it's worth, today I called and asked if I was eligible for a loyalty discount. I got a "renewed" Roamio Plus with product lifetime for $425, bought the 3 year extended warranty for $40, and got a slide remote thrown in free. My CSR was super friendly and very helpful.

    Also I am not at 10 years yet. Nine and change.

    I'm a 6 year customer and called in today to ask for the "loyalty promo". Best she could offer was a renwed plus for $325 + $200 lifetime. So definitely not as good as your offer, and also not even as good as the normal "loyalty" promo.

    $425 for a renewed plus with lifetime included sounds like an awesome deal.

    Yes. I was denied back in 2007 with a launch TiVoHD. I ended up putting the original drive back in and exchanging it at Circuit City.

    And how many hundreds (if not thousands) of folks haven't had issues with warranty coverage after upgrading their internal drive (assuming they hold on to the original)... in the same 8 year span?

    It does indeed. Tivo sent me a "loyal customer offer" for a renewed Tivo Roamio Plus with "service" (I assume lifetime service) for a $524 one time payment. The same deal for the Roamio Pro is $699, renewed with lifetime service.

    That's the only time I've ever had an issue. And it wasn't a hardware problem, it was a software problem that occurred with analog channels. They wouldn't troubshoot it since they saw that I had replaced the hard drive. In the end I switched to FIOS which was all digital. Which solved the problem for me. Since the TiVo techs had no clue and couldn't understand the difference between a stereo signal and a mono signal with the analog channels.

    I called in a month ago asking about the 10 year deal and was told my date for them was 2/11/2006 so I wasn't at 10 years yet.

    After reading this thread I tried again and was told today AGAIN that I'm not at 10 years so I can't get the deal. I wonder why some are getting in at 9 years + and others are told no each time. Sigh.

    I have a series 2 lifetime that connects but can't do anything upstairs. We have antenna only and it's analog so it's just there to keep my possible 10 year thing going. I bought a S3 on ebay a few months back with lifetime and I'm liking it but really wanted the latest and greatest.

    I got offer of Roamio new with lifetime for $550. I can get it online for that price, I was hoping more for the 10 year deal. I'm going to try calling back a few times.

    Just tried the code and it did take $100 off, so it does work but you have to click on the link do you have a code.

    It looks like I am going to have to replace my lifetimed Elite that is 3 months out of extended warranty. My suspicion is that Cox techs fried the tuners when installing a new amplifier. Needless to say I am gun shy of buying another lifetime, so I think I am going to go monthly since the monthly now covers the warranty. I was looking at the Spherular eBay deal for $9.99 a month instead of the $12.95 I would normally pay. Does anyone know if that $9.99 deal includes the warranty?

    I don't know about the warranty (I would assume yes) but if TiVo ever finds out about that deal they could raise your monthly payments, they can't do much about Lifetime.

    Can you not transfer the lifetime to the new unit?

    Lifetime is not transferable.

    It was at one point. Is it no longer?
