New (not refurbished) Roku 3 on Amazon at $89.00 (+ Two Months of Free Hulu Plus with the Purchase of Any New Roku Streaming Media Player): Roku 3 Streaming Media Player on Amazon. <edit: Merchant ID> (I'm not a merchant, and did not login to Amazon when I provided the link, so not sure what this means? I guess just do a search on Amazon for Roku 3 Streaming Media Player. :) )

The Hulu Plus deal is during the promotion period of July 13, 2014, and September 30, 2014.

It doesn't explicitly say refurb, however the model number is 4200R which I think means refurb.

"B" is the letter they use for refurbished boxes (B-stock).
While $70 has been the standard "good" price on refurb Roku3 lately, that deal at hhgregg was for a new item @$70. And... it is gone now.

Thats a great deal. I wonder how long the Roku 3 will be on sale for 89.99 and will the coupon be allowed if the Roku 3 is already marked down.

I put the roku in my cart with the coupon and the discount was applied. The coupon is good until 11/1. (start at shopdiscover and join staples rewards for 10% in cash back and rewards; pay for your purchase with staples gift cards purchased with discover cash back for another $10 off.) The price is a 'special buy' but I suspect that and the FTV $84 price are permanent. In fact, I expect both to be available at this $60 level going forward.

I don't think OTT has been as successful as suggested by the media. Antennas are sprouting like dandelions right now. I have yet to talk to a cable cutter who has even heard of a Roku or a Fire TV never mind bought one (except those for whom I have purchased or recommended a device). In the real world, people are buying Magnavox DVRs at walmart not Simples, tablos, DVR+s, or even TiVos.

I gave my BIL a Roku and a year of Netflix. The Netflix gift certificate remains unused. The Roku is probably still in the box. I was at my mother's Wednesday. I wanted to check out my STV2 on her Roku, but she could not find the remote. I was talking to a guy who was very excited about his new antenna. It turns out he simply ran a coax from the antenna to his TV (he only has one!) -- no amps or splitters, no DVR or streamer. The antenna was 'the biggest one walmart sold'. He didn't even care about an EPG. There seems to be a huge gap between the perceived market for these toys and what the consumer really wants (free tv).

The reality of having too many products competing for too few consumers is price pressure. Enjoy it while it lasts. Did you get a $90 two tuner Simple DVR?

Went to buy from Staples today. Roku 3 was no longer 89.99 but now it was 99.99. The coupon no longer worked and the Roku 3 was now out of stock. Bummer.

Can't help you with the price adjustment except to say check in next week. These prices have been bouncing up and down since summer. As for the coupon, it never worked in the store and it will continue to work online until 11/1.

I read the online $25-off-$75 is dead too now, nvm the formal expiration date.
"You snooze, you lose" :)

FWIW, i am afraid (and a bit ashamed) to say but at price of $65 FireTV is a better choice than Roku3@$65.

Roku 1 will be $28 at Walmart on Black Friday, although I think the prices start 8 PM on the Thursday if your state allows stores to be open Thanksgiving.
