if it is subscribed under your account, you may not receive the referral. if you just paid for it but subscribed it under her name and address, you should be eligible.
you may be best to call back and explain its a gift, but that you'd like the account in her name for future subscription purposes. that shouldn't be an issue i wouldn't think.javabird said:So, I should have used her name and address when I placed the order, and just put it on my credit card? Eek, I guess I made a mistake. Any way to fix it now (or when I activate the service)?
don't the prepaid bundles come preactivated?JustAllie said:It's not a problem if you haven't activated it yet -- when you activate it, give her name, address, and e-mail, with your e-mail as the referrer.
Hmm, you may be right -- in which case the opportunity to give a referral has already passed, I think.Mikeyis4dcats said:don't the prepaid bundles come preactivated?
call Tivo. they can probably fix it.javabird said:Bummer. That will be the 2nd time I didn't get points for a referral (the last time, the person exhanged the Tivo and didn't enter my email for the exchange.)
