    Hey guys,

    I've been contemplating picking up my second TivoHD. I've been browsing eBay and found a guy selling several for $225 w/free shipping. Not bad. I went to the Tivo site to see about the refurbs for $199 - they are sold out, plus you'd have to pay tax on the $199.

    So I went and purchased one from the guy on eBay. Then I was doing some more looking around online to see if there was still the live.com coupon available for eBay. There isn't apparently, but I did see that Sears.com is selling the HD for $199!

    Frankly, I was sick because $199 for a brand new box is a fantastic deal. Most other places online are at least $250...

    Oh well, I'm a good e-Bay person and honored my purchase... :)

    I'll soon be ending subscriptions on my Replays and will have completely converted to Tivo...

    If you go to Sears they may still have some units there, they ring up at $199. I just bought one there on thursday 2-5-09.

    I just called the sears store in Tigard, OR (near Portland). The sales guy said that they've stopped carrying Tivo units...

    I called my Sears and they said they have sold out of them "a long time ago". Also, sears.com doesn't have any in stock and it removes it from your cart if you try to add it.

    For want it is worth, I had to go the the actual Sears store in Salt Lake. They had one left (at the $199+ price) even though the website said they didn't. I did not check the stores in the valley (too far to drive)

    I asked the sale clerk to look it up. The shelf sign said $299, but it was $199 in their system

    I ended up finding a few at my local sears yesterday night. All the busier sears were out of stock but this store had 5. I was able to get the $199 price matched but the salesman also gave me other discounts. Ended up walking out of the store with a brand new tivo hd for 173 after tax. Now I just gotta wait for cablevision to come install my cablecard.

    I got a Tivo HD on clearance last month for $120 + tax at the local Sears store (Traverse City, Mi). Looks like it had been there a while as it had four or five price stickers starting at $299.

    I drove to the Tigard, Oregon store Sunday night, where they said they had 2 in stock. They could not find one, so I had them call Clackamas (other side of Portland) and they had one. I paid for it in Tigard ($199) and drove to Clackamas and picked it up. I would suggest going into the store instead of calling.

    Well, I ended up realizing I had a $40 gift card at Sears and I never shop there. So I went to the Sear Essentials in Palatine, IL today near my office. They had two TivoHDs plus the display unit. Price was $199. I purchased it. Now to figure out what to do with the one I just bought on eBay. It's still got 10 months worth of service on it. Guess I'll put it up on eBay once it arrives from the guy who sold it to me!

    I checked at the Sears store at Alderwood Mall (Lynnwood, WA) this morning and they were out of stock, but confirmed the price drop in their computer. They checked the Aurora (north Seattle) store and they had two in stock. Now they only have one. :D

    Thanks, NA9D for the headsup. :up:

    One note of caution at these Sears stores:

    Ask to open the box first and make sure all the stuff is there. I got home last night with my new box and it was missing the power cord! Called Tivo and they suggested I go back to Sears and exchange it. So I called the Sears where I bought mine and asked them to hold the other one. I drove the 30 minutes back there with my box. The guy in the electronics department wanted to open up the second box to make sure that the cord was in there. I was going to ask the same. When he opened it, it was clear that this had been a returned item and the box with the cables and remote and manual were all missing! It did have the power cord. So he gave me the power cord and I kept the box I'd bought and left.

    Both boxes looked to be factory sealed and had the security devices wrapped around them.

    So ask them to look inside!

    The Sears website no longer sells it at 199 (or at any price)

    As of about 30 mins ago, the Sears store at the Irving Mall, Irving had 4 TiVoHD's left after I bought 1 for 199 (216 w/tax). I opened the box and it was definitely all there and appeared to be a brand new unit.
    This is still on Sear's Web site at

    Again, you can't buy it online. When I put one in the cart and checked out it came back unavailable.
