I know I can get a better price but then I would have to call more, once a year is enough for me.

Cool 062814 renewal

I just called and renewed two radios for 6 months @ $25 per radio. With taxes and fees it was about $30 each. It is a pain to call every 6 months but it beats paying the full price.

We were just rebilled for Sirius service in both of our vehicles on two separate accounts, one for a full year and the other for 6 months. I called to cancel and get a refund, but was offered $20 (plus $2.50 royalty fee) for 5 months on each radio. They were also able to consolidate the accounts, which will make calling back in 5 months that much easier, plus refunded over $200.

I really did intend to cancel for a full refund, but $4.50 per month on each radio is a relatively reasonable price.

07/15/14 RENEWAL


I was rebilled after my 5 month discount plan ($32) expired for one radio/vehicle on the XM Select plan. I been renewing with this plan for the past 2 years and decided to try for a discounted annual plan or just cancel. Just got tired of calling every 5 months and negotiating a renewal plan instead of termination.


I called Customer Service (866-635-2349) and I explained my situation (didn't want to pay over $100 a year), and requested cancellation. I was offered XM Select plan for $89 plus $11 royalty fee for one year. I accepted and now don't have to worry about this until next year. Thanks to this forum contributors for the information!

I thought they left my service on then I found some my favorite music channels missing. I called back and they then gave me full service.

I'm also old school and use the got to cancel, it's just to expensive no more than i'm in the car. They let me have it at a nice discount. I forget the price though.

Just called 1-866-257-4767 & was able to get 5 months of Sirius Select for $20 plus tax. I had them bill me so there won't be any automatic credit card renewals taking place

I just purchased an Onyx Plus and called SiriusXM to activate the radio and ask about promotions and/or multi radio discounts. I currently have Sirius in my car with the Mostly Music package and the Internet app. I pay $152 1yr. for the subscription. When I spoke to the representative she stated that I was not eligible for any discounts because I had to subscribe to All Access or Select in order to receive a multi radio 33% discount.

So, I inquired about making the Onyx Plus my primary radio with the All Access Package or Select and make the car radio the secondary. She told me that i could not do that and i would have to pay $191 for the All Access or $155 for Select and $119 for the Mostly Music would be my subscription costs. I told her it was too expensive and could not pay that much and I asked if there are any promotions for 6 months or a year and she there were none. I then advised that I would like to disconnect the Internet package and the Sirius package for the car, which I intended to do. She placed me on hold and we were disconnected.

I called back a few minutes later and got the same response from another representative. My subscription is up in October, so I plan to cancel both the Sirius and Internet. I may keep the car radio if I could get some sort of discount. I'm contemplating on returning the Onyx Plus as I don't want to pay that much for a 1yr subscription. Any other suggestions are much appreciated?

The 20-25 for 6 months is a special offer for former subscribers to try to get them to come back...not everyone can get it..

SXM is running a free promo from now until next Tuesday or Wed.....most channels are on in all rcvrs....(they've done it before).....this is a good thing since they dont have to pay fees since such fees are a % of revenue and not the number of rcvrs listening...

BUT last time I listened, they had serious issues in audio on 70s, 80s and some other channels...one song would be ok, the next sounded worse than a poor stream...artifacts galore!! Guess I'll listen to see if anything has been done to correct it..

Jerry-

when your sub is up, call SXM and tell them that you want to cancel all service(s). Then you will receive better discounted offers to remain a customer.

Thanks JA. I called to cancel, which I fully intended to do, I was offered $80 1yr. sub for the OnyxPlus and $80 1yr. sub for the Sirius in the car. Both were upgraded to the Select Package. I canceled the Internet option, since I have the OnyxPlus connected to my surround sound in the home. So, I am pleased with the outcome. In fact, I recently made a trip from Atlanta to Nashville in a rental and the reception worked well with the OnyxPlus.

Just call up and ask to cancel because of cost. They will offer you $89 per year for select and $119 a year for all-access. Will also prorate back what you have left in current subscription.

Make a calendar entry to do this every year right before it ends.

The other option is to let it expire. Wait the next day and call in to get the $25 for six months deal.

Sirius/XM renewal pricing

Just renewed my new car's subscription for 6 mos. at "special" pricing of $36.08. Subscription includes XM select, NavWeather,Traffic, and Travel Link. I had to make 2 phone calls as the first person told me to call back as the subscription needed to run out before special pricing. Ha! The second agent gave me the special pricing information. I do have other radios with the, and I do the 6 months subscriptions at $25.00 per radio and the internet subscription for $24.00. I also request an invoice and have the invoice fee waived as I pay by check. This way I do not have to deal with the hassle of credit card charging if I forget to revew before the subscription runs out.

Hey,

Did/Does anyone here get SiriusXM INTERNET SUBSCRIPTION ONLY prepaid for 1-year(or more), at the great discounts we get for the Sirius regular subscription(Sirius Select for me)?

I get that at $98/year prepaid. Since the Internet Subscription costs the same, I was wondering if anyone here get's it at that great of a discount.

Or if they get a 1-year prepaid discount on Sirius Everything(which would include Internet), for under $120/year prepaid. I WILL NOT go over that amount. And that is just a personal feeling.

The reason why I ask is because when my Sirius Sub is up in Feb 2015, I was going to threaten to leave, but would stay if ONLY I could get the Internet Sub for under $100/yr. Then I would sell my Stiletto 100(plus 2 car docks/1 home dock), and just use the internet service.

Since you can DOWNLOAD SHOWS(Stern mainly) onto your phone, and playback at will, it kinda makes my Stiletto 100 repetitive, so i would get rid of it.

Anyone have internet at a great discount, by itself, or bundled with Sirius Everything at a great discount?

Reading about all the issues you folks go thru I'm sure glad my girlfriend on our one year anniversary paid the 399.00 lifetime membership. It's been ten years now since she paid for that and I'm still using the same original clunky silver XM Skyfy car unit direct connected to my Jeep. I've been thru three vehicles in ten years time and I just remove the unit the direct connection wiring and antennae and install in my new vehicle but it's still going strong. That gift my girlfriend gave me has more than paid for itself. I'm currently at 39.90 per year after ten years and with each passing year that amount just gets lower and lower.
I hardly ever use the dang XM radio with everything on my iPod now but every once in while I'll turn it on with a long trip or a favorite song gets tagged and let's me know it's on.

Shame they don't offer that deal to any of you now but with smart phones and Bluetooth radios I'm pretty sure XM/Sirius is gonna have to do something to keep you all as loyal customers I just wish my radio signal was stronger as I get static at various locations on my way to work which is frustrating and why I listen to my iPod mostly.

I've had success with just haggling with them on the phone. Maybe they'll give you a better price if you call them and tell them you're thinking about cancelling.

Thumbs up Great Success!!

OK, I'm pleased to report my SiriusXM renewal went well for my 2013 Volt with Travel Link & NavTraffic. I always try to arrange a longer term subscription, but to date, they have not been able to beat their 6 month subscription offers.

Again, 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. Since I completed my initial trial, I've paid near, or less than, $50/6 months. My previous 6 month deal was:

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

This time I negotiated the same plan, BUT I was able to get 2 add'l perks, a $2 credit for paying over the phone AND a one-time credit of $10 that was approved by my reps supervisor:

XM Select 6 Month @ 24.99
SiriusXM Travel Link 6 Month @ 5.97
NavTraffic 6 Month @ 11.97
U.S. Music Royalty Fee @ 3.12
Phone Payment Discount @ -2.00
One-Time Courtesy Credit @ -10.00
Total Current Charges = $34.05

I'm really satisfied with this offer and feel it's very reasonable for 6 months of service with SiriusXM. Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I just wish they'd give something competitive for 12 months. As I've said before, I'd be willing to pay more for the convenience of not calling in as frequently. I'd love to see the $399/Lifetime deal come back (assuming it had NavTraffic and Travel Link). I'd drop the coin on that immediately if not sooner!

Also, worth noting, I was 8 days late in renegotiating this contract (it fell right smack in the middle of the Christmas holiday). As such, they were going to charge me a little over $10 for that alone. Basically that was the prorated amount, plus taxes and such for those 8 days at full price. After I expressed that was crazy talk they refunded me the amount.

Finally, my honest disclaimer: 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 worth the premium pricing. I prefer my iPhone (WAZE, Pandora, Stitcher, Spotify, Rdio, Tunein, etc.), but if I can keep within this pricing range, I'm happy to pay that for the SiriusXM features.

Hope this helps!

Made the call to 1-866-257-4767 & got 6 month for $28.66. The CSR was reluctant at 1st to give me the deal. I first asked for the 5 month for $20 but she said that wasn't available. She said I could do a year for $100. I then asked her for the 6 month for $25 & I got it. Took about 4 minutes of time w/ the CSR but I was on hold for 10 minutes before I talked to her.

I really need to make some calls and negotiate. I don't think I am paying that much per month - but an added cost to add my car has kept me from doing so, or even caring that my car is capable.. might need to change my tune on this...

Ok...., here ones for ya'll!

Sirius does have another low price package that they do not actively promote very much.

It's called the BASIC PLUS package. It's only $5.99/month AND it INCLUDES Internet radio !!

You have to kinda beg and plead to get the CS rep to offer it. They will act "ALL SURPRISED" and say it's a new package and I forgot all about it! ........ BS........ I HATE (and I hate saying "I hate"! LOL !) high pressure sales tactics!
