I just noticed today that the Telo is $199 at Best Buy, I got my $50 adjustment.. If anyone else is looking for one, there's a good discount for you, just read the forums first before you jump to make sure you're ready for the hassle.

got mine at Costco, they still have a good deal-$229/6months free premier/$100 prepaid international calling.
Got mine for $199 plus all those goodies in Dec-Still looks like a good deal to me though. Love mine.

It seems like margins are starting to get razor thin on the hardware. It used to be $400-$500 for an Ooma. Now sub $200 pricing. I wonder how this changes the business model. I think the old model was that the expensive hardware subsidized the service. Maybe we are seeing a change to that model, one where the service prices will increase to subsidize the declining hardware prices.

Ooma was originally released at $399 in Sept 2007. This was supposed to be an introductory price and the price was supposed to go to $599 in 2008. I'm pretty sure they never raised the price to $599.

That price included the Premier features (lifetime premier) at no additional cost.

In April 2008, they lowered the MSRP to $249 and started charging separately for Premier (their current business model). https://www.ooma.com/media/press-release ... ce-bundles

Any retailer that prices the Telo below $249 is cutting into their own margin and shouldn't affect what Ooma is getting per unit sold.
