Didn’t get that TiVo you asked for? Trying to decide what to spend your holiday loot on? Remember, there are still a few TiVo deals available to get product lifetime service. If you currently have a TiVo with product lifetime service, purchase before October, 2003, you can transfer that service to a new TiVo HD for $199, but only through February 3, 2008.
Ending sooner, through January 7, 2008 existing TiVo subscribers can purchase a new TiVo HD with product lifetime for $698.99, direct from TiVo.
Also, through February 2, 2008, existing TiVo subscribers can purchase product lifetime for $399 when activating any new TiVo. (Something to keep in mind if you just received a new TiVo and haven’t activated it yet.) Also, the current special holiday promotional service pricing is only good through February 2, 2008.
While you need to be a current TiVo subscriber to take advantage of the product lifetime deals, if you’re a (pending) new subscriber you could probably find a friend who is a subscriber to make the purchase for you.
The TiVo HD plus lifetime is $669.64, even less than TiVo’s $698.99 direct offer. But don’t wait too long – you need to have the TiVo activated by the deadline, so don’t forget to allow for shipping time.
And if you’re buying a new TiVo, or you just received one, and you need to use it on your WiFi network, remember to pick up the TiVo 802.11g USB WiFi adapter for $39.58.
And here’s something odd – a couple of $100 TiVo Gift cards being sold for less than $100 after shipping. *shrug*
