    Mine shipped out of Fort Worth, TX on Mon and arrived in Portland, OR on Fri. It might be one day less to get to you.

    I ordered early Mon morning so I made the cutoff for same-day shipping and delivery was Friday so that would be 4 business days.

    4 days, from TX to CA. Most places ship out 1-3 days after orders were placed, some wait until the credit card clears. Next, after the shipping company (UPS, Fedex) picks it up, various scans/sortings, it waits until the next scheduled truck. If there is a transfer to local USPS, adds an extra day.

    I came across this "S2 Aggressive Update Offer" link which is good for a $599.99 Roamio Pro with $49.99 product lifetime. I clicked on the link and put it in my cart but didn't follow through to see if an order would actually go through as I don't need another Roamio. Apparently it's a targeted offer link that will only work for those accounts that received the offer. So likely useless but interesting ...

    I guess TiVo got rid of the extra Roamio Plus units and now want to rid themselves of some Roamio pro units, but the link does work up to place the order part, I don't need another Roamio so I did not place the order.

    PLS for $49.99? Gotta be a typo. Someone jump on it before they correct it. :)

    That's an old offer. From June. Expired. And was only targeted to users who still own/run series 2 Tivos with lifetime. Or so I read on a deals site.

    It not a typo as you have to pay full list price for Roamio Pro, so current TiVo customers are saving $350 on a Lifetime Roamio Pro. I got all the way to place your order and it worked, so if you want/need a Roamio Pro it is a good deal.

    Well, I think its a typo because PLS is $499.99 and the offer is $49.99 which is 1 digit #9 left off. The deal will go through with the offer at $49.99, as normal, until its taken down.

    Its similar to when they had the airline tickets posted for some insane price like $10 many moons ago, until it was caught and taken down, people jumped in on it and the airline had to accept the tickets.

    I placed order but it just reloads. I guess it was just an error.

    It definitely went through. I noticed because my credit card got charged 3 times. Now I have to call TiVo and cancel 2 of them. I reloaded the page and ordered 3.

    I posted it on slickdeals before i realised it doesnt work. I have 4 pending charges on my cc from tivo. I called tivo twice, hoping to get a rep that would honor the deal. They said they couldnt unless i had the promo code in a specific email. Oh well. The rep said another big sale is coming labor day if i want to wait.

    Thanks a lot for letting me know. I guess I will call them to get the pending charges removed. I'll be buying during the Labor Day sales, then.

    Do you know if they have ever discounted the TiVo Mini boxes? I also want to get 6 of those.

    I just got a new Roamio deal from my E-Mail

    Special offer for veterans and active duty military personnel

    We at TiVo appreciate those who have served our nation, past and present. To show our gratitude we're offering exclusive pricing on the all-powerful TiVo Roamio. Starting as low as $0 down and $19.99 a month, our military friends can experience the convenience and flexibility served up by our best DVR ever, TiVo Roamio
    .

    Go here to see the deal http://www.tivo.com/military?em_AugNews_2014

    I not in the service but the deal for $99 + $19.99/month for a Roamio Plus may be a good deal if after some fixed amount of time you get Lifetime on the unit, if not after 2 years you have paid for Lifetime service like purchasing the Roamio Plus using the E-Bay codes. Maybe I not seeing something about this deal as to why it is so good for our service people.
