Really basic, possibly stupid, Tivo Rewards question.

If I buy a second Tivo and activate it, do I get points?

I'm pretty sure you don't. You have to refer someone else. (Although you could ask if anybody else here is activating a new TiVo and arrange to swap referrals with them...)

Both referring yourself and trading referrals are not allowed in the TiVo rewards program.

There is a sticky in this forum.

Thanks for the clarification.

Interestingly TivoBill states "though of course we do appreciate you buying more TiVo boxes yourself (and reward you with lower pricing via Multi-Service Discount)".

Actually that's not altogether true. From my perspective, there is zero reward/discount for multiple subscriptions by the same owner when you consider the resale value of boxes without lifetime subscriptions. Perhaps it would have been appropriate to provide a partial (e.g. 1/2 or 3000 points) for a "self-referral" rather than nothing.

Just my 2 cents.

Happy New Year to All!
Jeff
