Never realized you could haggle a subscription until reading this thread. I've been letting them automatically hit my credit card every year for full price. My renewal is coming up on 5/16 so I need to see what kind of deal I can get. I'm not paying the price they sent on my renewal. XM Select for one year they want $179.88 plus $25.00 royalty fee so $204.88 total. That's just for one radio in my car, no nav or streaming.

Yes, MrJames, the price quoted to you is entirely too much.
Let us know the "deal" that you receive. I have XM SELECT as well.

I have an old Polk tuner that was due for re-up yesterday, ended up with XM Select for 6 months/$25.00. Definitely don't wait to let your subscription expire to auto renewal!

Last month, I received my renewal notice for XM Select at $204.88 total due the first week of May. Just called 866-431-7474 this afternoon and selected the "cancel" option. I informed The Customer Service rep that I cannot afford to pay the automatic renewal rate and she promptly looked for other pricing options. She immediately came back with the same $89 12-month rate that I paid last year. No muss, no fuss; $99.73 total with royalty fee and good for another year. Thanks AVS Forum!

Talking $25 6 months

$25 6 months- no streaming

I just called 888 601 6302 and told him I want to cancel. Too expensive.
Offer 1: $119.99 All access
Offer 2: $89.99
"Still too expensive. I'll stick with my Pandora One. Are there any other options before I cancel?"

Offer 3: $25- 6 months. You don't need any codes, just work down the list till you find what you want. Took about 5 min.

Well, for what it's worth my free BMW one year was up and the renewal rate was around $54.00 per quarter or over $200.00 per year. I balked and said I might just cancel and go with I-Heart radio. The rep then countered with a "promo" rate of $84.00 for one year before taxes and royalties. Figured why not and signed up for the year.

Glad I found this thread. My subscription will be automatically renewed on 06/01 (or they wish!) for $54 and some pennies. Over $200 a year? Yeah, not happening.

When should I be calling them to cancel or discuss a better pricing? End of May is good enough?

Thanks!

Yippee-ki-yay...

I usually call about a week or so, prior to auto-renewal, so late May sounds good.

I've been thinking about adding streaming. Does Offer 2 also include all access for $90 plus royalties?
