UPDATE: Mine is already on its way since I pre-ordered but I just watched the presentation and found out a few things that may make this model preferable to the one at Costco or elsewhere--This is Platinum PLUS model, only available directly from Keurig and QVC. The big difference is that there is hot water on demand, a larger water tank and a rinse feature. As stated before, the Costco model doesn't come with the water filter either, which is $18, and there are color choices as well. Can't wait to get mine.
Got an email that let me order the TSV in advance. Very similar to the Costco deal but with the water filter and more K cups, so even with shipping comes out a little better. QVC allows for 6 payments which may help some people at this time of year. Must click through the email to get the offer, there are a few other items available as well. Includes choice of colors several which are exclusive to QVC until 2013 including all black.
