Just called 866-635-2349, said cancel, talked to a friendly rep & got XM Premier Family Friendly for $101.78 total. 3rd year in a row. Asked about internet but they didn't budge.

Glad it was painless! Do you remember their name or know where they were?

generally when you are already getting a discount like that where you're saving six months of service, they generally can't give you SXIR for free or discount it for that matter. there are specific scenarios where it is possible, (I do it quite often actually just because). If you called & asked someone nicely, I'm sure they could get it approved, just tell them you'll cancel your subscription you just signed up for because you were told you had it if you really want it that bad. Believe me, you'll have it.

I forgot his name. English was his second language but it wasn't a problem, so I'm not sure if he was in the States or not.

Does anyone have a current phone number to speak to someone in the US or Canada? Or must you call between certain hours? I had a special number I used last year and it has been disconnected now.

Yes, it's; 866-635-2349 - Opt for the cancellation department for an American representative. Unless obviously you get someone with a heavy accent. Good luck!

Is traffic free?

I have two cars, both with Alpine nav systems that i paid for 3 year plans a LONG TIME AGO. But they still work for traffic.

I recently rented a car with Sirius in it, and am curious how much it would cost to get it put in, and I'm wondering if I'm grandfathered into traffic or something.

No, the NavTraffic feature is NOT free. The Traffic is $3.99/mo along with any other taxes & fees that may come along with it. I would suggest calling in & seeing if they would add it to your rented vehicle for the short term you're there, maybe even for free. You WILL however need to call to cancel that service once the car is returned, or you'll continuously be billed thereafter.

I just read my original post and it does read the way you answered, I must have just woken up when posting.

What I really meant was:

I have 2 cars, both have NavTraffic. I haven't paid for the service in YEARS.

I was in a rental car, and it had SAT radio, I thought it might be neat to add it (for channel 8 biggrin.gif ) to my cars, I'm wondering if the Traffic is free, or if they simply forgot about me!

Then if I add it, they'll mess up my "free" traffic. I know, sounds cheap, but just asking. biggrin.gif

Well, what kind of "Traffic" service are you referring to? Are you talking about the basic navigation where it will give you directions from point A to point B? Because yes, that's free, its standard equipped with your car. Now on the other hand, are you using that same screen & getting notifications when there's a traffic incident, construction zone, road closing, or a re-route? If the second part is what you're referring to, then you've been billed for it before & I would suggest you call to see exactly how much you've been charged for it.

If all you're referring to is the basic traffic "CHANNELS" which are for specific larger cities, then those are included in your audio subscription package, no specific additional charges are added.

Just called after my girl called and got turned down for any deals at all for her. Told them they had billed me without asking permission for the renewal on my credit card, offered me a few promos: 12 months for $86, 6 months for $43 and then I finally asked him about the 5 for 25 and got that promo. 5 Months for $25 plus $3 fee. I even added my girls radio on my account for the special pricing. Ask and you shall receive!

I got $24 for 6 months. I had no intention of renewing and this is the second time they called me. This last time they called 3 times before I picked up.
Hold out and you will get a deal.

I just got 6 months for $24.99 also. Came to $28.11 with the fees and tax.

I'm hoping to get that again in December when I call to cancel.

I'm bummed out. I tried today to renew my second receiver at a lower rate and they wouldn't budge. It worked once before. I was on the phone with Sirius for over a half hour. I spoke with "Peggy" then I was transferred to someone else who spoke better English who is the one that usually makes you the offer you can't refuse. I used the age old excuse of lousy sound quality on the receivers which I'm sure they have heard a million times. They even offered me a new receiver again to which I told them it wouldn't make a difference, I couldn't justify paying the full second receiver price for sound quality worse then AM radio. I guess your limited to how many times it could be done. mad.gif

Like everyone else, I call in every 5 months threatening to cancel if they don't give the same deal. I would live to do this just one a year.

I've just gotten a Sonas Play 5 and would possibly like to access the Siriusxm radio inside my house. What is the best deal I can get to go along with my car radio every 5 or so months?

I just got the call about my free year that came with my car expiring next month on the first. I passed on it and they only offered three months for the price of one. No half-off deal at all. Looks like I'll have to live without. At $77/yr. I would re-up. Can't justify it for twice that price. Music is unlistenable because of compression. Getting cable news is about all I use it for. Maybe they'll call back before my subscription lapses?

My "cancellation threaten" half-price year is up. I was calling them on a completely unrelated matter and the girl sorta volunteered extending the half-price deal another year. I didn't argue. I'd gotten a new unit a couple of months ago and it somehow caused my main radio and "additional radio" to become uncoupled, resulting in full-price renewals for both. So, that's fixed AND I get another year with two radios for half price.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Any luck with getting deals on Premiere package? They sent an offer in mail for a year of Select for $89 but I need Premiere (Howard Stern). I called and asked and rep wasn't helpful.

Will try again another day unless someone knows of something.

Do you have Sirius Select, or XM select(you would have either one because you have an older XM or Sirius Radio)?

Because HStern is on Sirius Select. No doubt. I get that every year on my Stiletto 100.

I have XM through my 2013 Honda. He's not on XM Select, only XM "All Access", which includes the old Premiere channels.

Just a Tip, if you are up for renewal and will renew on standard mind boggling rates but u still want the same promo plan, just call customer service, and tell them you wanna CANCEL SERVICE because of high cost of the renewal. Then customer service will connect you over to retention/cancellation department. Remember, don't ask for promo plans cause they will just tell u:D that it was a one time deal yada yada...just stick in canceling service and they will offer wide varieties of promo plans. And theyre gonna offer it in heirarchy.

1st offer $95/yr when you declined;then
2nd $89/yr you declined again ; then
3rd 6 months for $30 declined: then
4th 6 months for $25 this will be the last offer so grab it. smile.gifwink.gifwink.gifbiggrin.gif

I was just offered the $117 price also. But she said taxes, fees and whatever else she mentioned it would end up being $156 total. But the $117 does exist for all access w/computer and smartphone access. Just called 10 mins ago.

I just called in to cancel my vehicle subscription and last offer of $25 for 5 months SiriusXM service.  Very friendly CR offered me another 5 months for the same total price, $25.   I could have probably negotiated for more of a discount (6 months / $25 or yearly), but I am happy with the fast renewal service.

 

It sure beats the standard quarterly fee of $46.91.
