I wanted to highlight something buried in my last entry – TiVo has quietly slipped another rebate out there. The last rebate ended on June 30th, and no new rebates have appeared on the TiVo rebate page. But Amazon has the new rebate, which is good on purchases made between July 1 and July 28, 2007.
The rebate provides for $170 back on purchases of single-tuner Series2 units with model numbers beginning with ’540′ – aka the ‘night light’ units with the white front bezel. It also provides for $150 back on the purchase of the Series2DT (model 649) as well as other single-tuner Series2 units (models 264, 275, 565, 590, and 595). As in the past, the wording on the rebate is confusing as it refers to the latter as the “$150 TiVo Series2 Dual Tuner DVR Rebate”, when most of those models are single tuner.
