Circuit City is already offering a discount on the TiVo HD – instead of $299.99 you pay $258.99.
But there’s more, there are also current Circuit City coupons to save $40 of a purchase of $199 or more. Using a coupon brings it down to $218.99 (plus any tax). A number of users at TiVoCommunity.com have picked up units for this price at their local Circuit City. And some have also received refunds for the difference in price, since they purchased it in the last week before the price dropped.
You might be able to get other retailers, such as Best Buy, to price match. Can’t hurt to try.
I’m really surprised to see it discounted so soon after launch. This should really boost sales – until CC runs out of boxes.
(Personally I stopped shopping at Circuit City when they backed DIVX over DVD… yes, I’m old and crotchety.)
