Yesterday I posted about a rumored $200 rebate on the Series3, but I was waiting for information from TiVo. Well, I never did hear back from TiVo, but Lou Jacob of DVRupgrade.com was kind enough to send me the PDF of the rebate form.
It is a $200 mail-in rebate on the TiVo Series3 – this is only the original Series3 and not the TiVo HD. Purchase the Series3 between September 16th, 2007 and January 26th, 2008. The rebate must be postmarked by March 26th, 2008. So the rebate kicks in this Sunday – if you’re thinking of buying a Series3, hold off a few days more.
With the Series3 available for $600, or less, from a few online retailers, that brings the cost down below $400, putting it about $100 more than the TiVo HD. That’s not a bad deal for what you get – 250GB instead of 160GB, the Glo remote, and the nicer design of the unit itself.
And if you plan to connect any TiVo using WiFi, be sure to pick up the TiVo Wireless G USB Network Adapter.
If you pick up a new TiVo, using TiVo Lovers as your TiVo Rewards referrer is always appreciated.
