Thread: Bulk TivoHD purchase

  1. #1

    Bulk TivoHD purchase

    Would anybody be interested in trying to put together a bulk TivoHD purchase? I'm after two and am hoping to pay around the $500 each?

    Worth a try?

    This was discussed quite a bit on the mailing list when TiVoHD first came out, but I don't think anyone was able to secure any decent discounts.

    You can count me in. I have already convinced one workmate to buy one and he loves it. I can probably work on a few others here too.... let me know.

    I'll take one if you can get it for $500.
    Please search this forum and our Website for your TiVo questions before starting a new thread. Thanks!

    I can probably shift about 3-5 units here at work. Are you expecting the $500 to include wireless adapter?

    I have tomorrow off work, so I will do some asking to see if anyone can do me a good deal for a group buy. Let me know how many units you would be interested in purchasing if I can get a good deal.

    Jeremy, Ill grab one if you can get hold of some. Please let me know as I am very interested if I can get one at $500. I have a TivoHD in the house but want another one for the other room.

    This goes for anyone else also. If there are any good deals, please let me know.

    Deal

    Here is what I have learnt so far (can anybody confirm?)
    1) There is next to NO margin on the Tivo for retailers
    2) The cost actualy paid by the retails depends on when they purchased them.

    The guy I have been trying to strike a deal with manages a retail chain and tells me they purchased the units when they were first release and paid somewhere in the vacinity of $590 for them. Although he has told me to wait until next month, post free view release, there might be 'something' on the go.

    Sorry for the screw around but will keep you posted. If anyone else finds a good price in the mean time let us know.

    Regards,
    Jeremy

    Yes I have also been told the same by a salesman that TiVo has told them they can't give heavy discounts to a TiVo sale as they want their RRP pricing to stay firm.

    Dick Smith offered me $650, but it seems hard to go under that. I will keep a look out too.

    Seems TiVo are happy to do the discounting themselves as when North Sydney DSE re-opened a couple of weeks ago, they had a dude dressed in a TiVo outfit handing out $100 discount vouchers.

    Jeremy, I have also approached TiVo themselves to see if they can throw around a deal for us or some of their discount vouchers for a group buy. They have passed my request onto a specialised team within the company to discuss. Will post any news here as it comes through.
