Top Amazon Prime Day Deals

Dave Zatz —  July 11, 2017

As far as manufactured marketing holidays go, Amazon Prime Day is a winner given the widely accessible, tangible benefits. Of course, many Amazon house brand products see some deep discounts. But there are also quite a few other smart home and home entertainment deals to be had. And, bonus, any purchase over $20 ordered via Alexa receives a $10 credit. Keep in mind, many items will sell out and new items are always popping up throughout the day. Some sale highlights —

 

Some TiVo Deals To Be Had

Dave Zatz —  June 23, 2017

Given TiVo’s apparent deemphasis of retail and degraded Rovi guide data, I might not have branded this promotion a “Meltdown” … but there are certainly some good deals to be had here this summer. First and foremost is the TiVo Roamio OTA 48-hour “flash sale” — at $300, including lifetime service, this is a solid deal for a great cord cutter DVR (even though you may not need one). Plus it’s TiVo’s larger 1TB model. Further down the line are refurbished TiVo Mini extenders at $100. This may not be the best price we’ve ever seen, but it’s a nice discount and supposedly the newer, model with RF remote. Lastly, if you were already in the market for a Bolt or prior generation Roamio Pro, TiVo will spot you a minimum of $200 for a box with lifetime service.

The TiVo Roamio OTA is on sale for $250, including lifetime service (!) and free shipping. Two points to note: This is the older, 500GB model and it is a refurb. However, this is a fantabulous deal — the cheapest way to get one of the very best antenna experiences… a likely better investment than the TiVo Mavrik and when paired with a few TiVo Minis. If you’re more comfortable with new hardware and would appreciate another 500GB, Amazon is offering Lifetimed 1TB model for $347(Thanks Bill!)

*with catches, of course


While its been periodically available, to folks who call in, TiVo is now publicizing a highly compelling but targeted $99 Lifetime Service transfer… from older DVRs onto the newer TiVo Bolt platform.

For a limited time, transfer lifetime service from your TiVo Series 2 or Series 3 DVR for only $99 with a purchase of any new TiVo BOLT™. Seriously, we’ve never offered a deal like this before! TiVo BOLT is the best TiVo ever!

The TiVo all-in service plan is regularly $550. You save $450 when you buy a new TiVo BOLT and Transfer your lifetime service for just $99!

Only TiVo Series2/Series3, HD and HDXL DVRs with Product Lifetime service that have connected to the TiVo service between 3/28/16 and 3/28/17 qualify. Your current TiVo DVR will be deactivated 10 days after you connect the new TiVo BOLT to the TiVo service.​

If you meet the above criteria yet haven’t received an email blast, I suggest giving TiVo a call prior to April 10th – at which point the promo ends.

(Thanks James!)
