    Tivo HD went to $259.99 & shipped free at Amazon.com today. Cheapest price in quite some time.

    That price is through one of their resellers (Vanns.com). The actual amazon.com price is still ~$268.

    Still, Vanns has free (ground) shipping; probably faster than the "Super Saver" shipping Amazon offers. So, it's still $8 cheaper.

    When it hits that 199 sweet spot, then we can talk (wishful thinking, I know).

    The $267 price was Vann's price before Vann's dropped it today. You watch it will be Amazon's price soon. Amazon has to catch up.

    Here is Vann's Previous price. It can still be seen on the search. I already filed a 30 day post price guarantee on my Tivo Hd I just bought.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Amazon interestingly shows shipping costs in the shipping policies if ordering from vanns.com. But if you put it in your cart, indeed shipping is free.

    And now Amazon's price is up to ~$280 and I saw that change over about 9 minutes...and the Vanns deal doesn't seem to appear on amazon. Wow.

    Like someone else said, I'll wait for the $199 sweet spot. :)

    The discounts we offer for items on our web site do vary from time
    to time. I've checked your order, and found that we now offer a
    greater discount on "TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder" than
    at the time you placed your order.

    Since your purchase was so recent, I have requested a refund of
    $5.89 to your credit card. This amount reflects the difference
    between the price you were charged and the discounted price. The
    refund should be processed in the next few days and will appear as a
    credit on your next billing statement.

    You may view returns and refunds by clicking the "Your Account" link
    at the top of our web site, then clicking "Go!" next to "open and
    recently shipped orders." Completed refunds will appear at the
    bottom of an individual order's summary page.

    Thank you for shopping at Amazon.com--we hope you will visit us
    again soon.

    If you paid $267.99 or $265.88 you need to get a credit in the difference before 30 days.

    Now $259.99 from amazon themselves. Kind of like watching options trading.

    If you are tracking amazon prices, then you missed the cheapest one. On Sunday morning of this week the Tivo HD was down to $249.99, there's a site that will email you when the price drops. I forget what site it was but do a google. Maybe wait until it drops down to $249.99 if you want the cheapest price. :p

    I haven't been able to confirm the $249.99 price existed. Was this directly from Amazon? Do you have a link or copy of the page?
