I don't know if this is a mistake or an oversight or what, but I just ordered a TiVo Premiere for $146.92. A new one, not a refurb. That's less than half the list price, and without question the best deal I've ever seen on a new, current-gen TiVo.
To get it, you need to apply coupon code LABORDAYWEEKEND at checkout. Given that Labor Day weekend ended a little over a week ago, I'm surprised the code still works. But it does, at least as of 9 a.m. ET.
Update: Looks like the deal is over, folks. Congrats to those of you who managed to get it; apologies to those who didn't. But check this out: TiVo itself is running a fairly amazing promotion. For $20 per month (plus tax), you get the TiVo Premiere and service! The only hitch: you have to sign up for a two-year contract.
I know that when this model debuted earlier this year, there were complaints about the sluggish interface. My question to current Premiere owners: has anything changed? I'm hoping there's been a software update or two, because if I want a sluggish interface, I'll stick with my Comcast DVR.
Anyway, as you probably know, the TiVo requires a subscription; plans start at $12.95 per month (which is why I've held off buying one for so long).
I have no idea how long Electronics Expo will have these in stock or when they'll pull the plug on that amazing discount code. If you're in the market for a TiVo, I'd grab this now.
Bonus deal: If you're an iPhone, iPad, or iPod owner, you can grab adventure classic Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge for just 99 cents. It's normally $7.99!
