XM and Sirius Satellite Radio > XM subscription renewal time again...any discount codes?
Jerryco's Avatar Jerryco 07:17 PM 02-25-2014
I was able to reduce my plan to total of $40 for 5 month as I mentioned current deals are far from my budget.

Service providers are willing to offer the better deals for short term commitments as they count on the fact that you will forget calling to renew your service when it expires. Then they renew your service with much higher costs without you paying attention.

I am using RemindMe2Save to keep track of all my service providers ( xm, cable, gas..) expiration dates in one place (for easy tracking), then when its time to renew I will call them and keep the low price going smile.gif

My free trial ends on March 1st. I received an email from them yesterday for $4.99 a month for 6 months, so I accepted that deal. The phone number that was in the email is 888-891-8317. They also didn't charge an activation fee since I'm still on the free trial.

$107.14 total for 1 year / 1 subscription.
I could have done better but did not want to deal with this again in 5 months.

My 6 month subscription for $24.99 was about to expire, so I just called to try and get another deal. Had to go through the cancellation department, she offered me many different "deals", all higher than I paid before, finally was able to get 5 months for $19.99 ($23.13 w/taxes). I called 866-635-2349, was nice, but persistent. Hope this helps. Everyones posts have been very helpful for  me. Thanks!

I know several people with Sirius/XM who have complained about high monthly prices.

Further interrogation revealed they were often paying for more product that they use. Many had the Premier package when all they do is listen to music.

Reducing to what you really need can save a few bucks.

Just letting you know that I called to cancel and they gave me a 50% off deal on everything for a 1 year subscription. I currently subscribe to XM Select and NavTraffic/Weather.

Regular pricing: XM Select ($14.99 month) and Nav Traffic & Weather ($7 month)
New pricing: XM Select = $7.42 / Nav Traffic & Weather = $3.50

The lady asked if $77 for another year would be acceptable and I said yes. Too easy. She said that she can't set up the account to renew next year at this rate and for me to call back then and see what they can do for me. I wish Comcast and AT&T would bend over like that for me as well.
I do this with Comcast every year. it has been over 10 years since I have had to pay full price. Just tell them you can not longer afford to pay for stuff you do not watch. 100 channels and everyone will be playing the same old stuff over and over.

Wow. I just called the 1-888-891-8317# and asked to cancel. They sent me to the cancellation department and I was cancelled without even asking me why or asking about other offers! I've been doing this for the last 8 years or so and have always been able to get a better deal. Don't know if it was because it's the weekend or the phone # I called-I tried the 866-635-2349 # and it was busy. My wife won't be happy as she listens to the internet xm. I would have continued at a discount but it's not worth the regular rate!

Just renewed for half list price. $99.86 for one year including all taxes and fees. No big argument. It was offered as soon as I said the full price was too high, which it was. I was ready to cancel if it did not come in at less than $100.

Thanks for all the help with updated information on this forum. smile.gif

I just called in to cancel.

Was offered:
$25 for 5 months
$89 for 12 months
$119 for 12 months (with streaming)

$28.11 with taxes and fees per tuner for 5 months is what I chose. Now I'll have to do this all again in 5 months.

Out of curiosity JUSTTAINT, how many tuners do you have on your account?

I currently have 2. One for my Ford Escape Sirius unit(6-month prepaid sub started last April), and my Sirius Stiletto 100(1-year prepaid started in Feb 2014).

I have been getting discounts on my Stiletto 100 for well over 8 yrs now. Just added my Ford unit, which will come due in Oct 2014. I have heard/read that people with multiple units "SOMETIMES" do not get the discount on more than ONE UNIT.

This has me a bit peeved. If I have to, I will simply shut down the Ford Escape Sirius unit, as getting the 1-year prepaid discount on the Stiletto 100 is much more important. If I can get BOTH, that would be great. Which is the way I WANT IT. I do not get what I want, I walk, with no regrets.

Have you, or anyone else, come across this problem with multiple units. I know mine were not done at the same time of year, which would make it easier. But these questions are for those with more than one unit on their accounts, that come due at different times of the year.

Do you get discounted rates on ANY/ALL your units, or do they try to FORCE you to pay in full one ONE unit, while heavily discounted on another within the same account? if they rry this with me, like I said, I will just dump the Ford Escape unit. Do not want to chance not getting the discount on the Stiletto 100. More important too me right noiw.

That was easy - didnt even have to romance the lady on the phone.

Saw that I was billed for 185.00

Called up - all I said was, "I want to cancel, Im not paying that much..."

Sent me to the retention center..."We can offer you 89.00...would that work?"

Yep...sure does.

I have two tuners. They've never tried to get me to pay full price for either unit when offering deals, and I've never been denied a deal. A few years back they gave me a deal on the first tuner ($77 plus fees) and charged me the extra tuner price on the 2nd ($6.95/mo maybe??). Ever since then it's been the same deal for both tuners.

Thank you for the response justtaint.

I just started a month-to-month service with Sirius Select, $14.99 a month. My wife and I just wanted to try it out. If we decide on a one-year subscription, what would be an acceptable monthly cost? We have just one Sirius/XM radio in our truck.

thanks in advance
perfman's Avatar perfman 05:40 PM 06-04-2014
Re-up time again for my truck, took 5 months @ $24.99. Couldn't get her to agree to $50-$60/year, although I am getting e-mails to turn the wife's radio back on for $20 / 5 months.

What is the best deal to be had for the All Access Package?

During my 3 month free trial I got offers in the mail for 29.94 of 6 months xm select. The day my free trial expired, I called the number on one of the offers. Asked if that included Howard Stern and internet access. I was informed that it did not. Was offered 6 months All access for 49.99 + 4.93 royalty fee for a total of 54.92. I took that as I heard that they don't offer deals on All Access and that is less then half the regular cost.

Just to clarify for everyone, If you have a XM or SiriusXM radio, the Select package does NOT include Howard Stern. If you have a Sirius radio, Howard Stern is included with Select package. Doesn't seem fair does it?

Aftter getting multiple calls today from xm. I called back and agreed to 6 months for $50 for all access including travel and traffic and mobile app.
totalownership's Avatar totalownership 12:52 PM 06-20-2014
Just got the call from these guys too for renewal. Wish I had read this first as I would have demanded the "All Access" package for the prices above. I got XM Select for 89 bucks for a year. They wanted twice that. Infact they had some ridiculous rate at 160 something for 6 months. It's like a game with these guys. I remember reading people getting deals previously but didn't really go into detail when reading. Just remembering people getting half off so I was at least going to get that.

Time to renew SiriusXM in my 2013 Volt with Travel Link & NavTraffic:

It was fairly painless. I called 866-635-2349 and followed the prompts for cancellation. I was polite, reasonable, but firm. I reviewed previous pricing I had with the operator and said I would cancel if they couldn't do better, or at least match what I had. I've paid near, or less than, $50/6 months since I completed my initial trial. Often I'm able to get a one time credit that will offset whatever offer they have, but it appears they didn't have that offer, or this particular operator (or her supervisor) wouldn't give it. Even still I was happy with the 6 month deal I finally negotiated:

SiriusXM Travel Link 6 Month @ 5.97
XM Select 6 Month @ 24.99
NavTraffic 6 Month @ 11.97
U.S. Music Royalty Fee @ 3.12
Total Current Charges = $46.05

I always try and work a 1 yr deal, but never have any success. The best they were offering for one year was $136.95 (which may have reflected a small credit from my previous bill). I suggested they apply a one-time $20 credit to that price (as they've done in the past with my 6 month pricing) but they wouldn't budge. Surprising, as they would have made more money off me over the long haul. I might even have accepted $10 off so as not to have to call again in 6 months. It's actually not that surprising.

For what it's worth, I'm fully prepared to cancel my service. All the features are redundant in my car and the music selection in my opinion is not that great. I prefer my iPhone (WAZE, Pandora, Stitcher, Spotify, Rdio, Tunein, etc.), but if I can keep this pricing, I'm happy to pay that for the SiriusXM features.

Hope this helps!

It was that time of the year again, making the call I hate but it's my wife's CUV so I accommodate her and see if they will cancel us or not. I called in and right away inform her it cost too much, she says we have been on the half price plan since 2008 and she can renew at that price and I agree. If they know this why can't they just do it, I hate calling them and speaking with a rep I can barely understand. I agree to a yearly renewal just because I hate dealing with this company and if I can ever get my wife to put her phone in a cradle and plug in the cable then I can be done with them for good. I am on the invoice plan, but they NEVER send one until I call, can't figure out what their end game is but I have never trusted this company.
