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?

Just renewed.

They offered 12 months for $89 plus fees and I declined. They then offered 5 months for $25 and I accepted. Totaled out to $29.81 after fees. It will recur at $43 for 3 months in October so I'll be making another call then. Call just saved me $175.

Seems there are no discounts for Internet Radio listeners. I just called to say I wanted to cancel on my auto-renewal, as $204.88 is just too much.
The Listener Care operator told me that they only have discounts for radio subscribers, not for Internet only subscribers, so they gave me a cancellation confirmation # and I will not be auto-renewing.

Bummer. Not sure why they couldn't give me the same deal as others have received here.

That is a bummer. I have the APP only prepaid for a year($188/year), just to get rid of a bunch of Sirius Cash Cards which are non-refundable. I really only keep it for H Stern. Even if he resigns, $204+ for this garbage is WAY OVERPRICED.

You can get a full year of BOTH Netflix, and Amazon Prime for that. Or Netflix($108/year)+Pandora($55/year, plus sound that is 10,000 X better than SiriusXM), +HuluPlus($47/6 months) for nearly the same price as one year prepaid of the SiriusXM App!!!

When it is broken down that way, I would NEVER get SiriusXM. It is actually a Rip Off

At the end of my new Chevy trial period they called me to re-subscribe. They offered $30 for 6 months. I probably could have gotten an extra $5 out of them.

Just renewed my XM for my 2008 GMC. Took nine minutes to get it done. Don't want to mess with the six month plan. They renewed me at last years rate. $ 89.00 + 12.37 + 2.00 invoice = $103.37 I can live with that. In November my free year is up on our Dodge so we'll see how that goes. I believe I'll need the Select package to get my sports channels on that vehicle.

Best to call. Just got off phone. Told them I wanted to cancel both radios (portable and car). They wanted to keep me, and gave me the promo of $54 for six months; less $10 for being long time customer = $44. (for each radio)for 6 mos. for Sirius All Access; with computer listening, Stern, Football, Nascar, golf, etc.) Have to call them in six months or they auto renew at very high prices. If you get an agent who won't play ball, hang up and call back.

True. Good point. Still a RIP OFF though for over $204 for RADIO only. Just an Opinion.

I have yet to come across an agent who would not "play ball" when I had a Stiletto.

They will offer EVERYTHING under the Sun to keep you when you cancel. I did the "cancelling" thing for well over 9 years. ZERO problems each year(prepaid 1/yr).

Always got the discount I wanted with ZERO issues. As long as you are talking about a CAR, or a SiriusXM Radio. Or Both.

Not the APP alone though. You(I am, at least) screwed there. Must pay full price as of 5/18/15.

They offered me 6 months for $30 for SiriusXM select by e-mail, after my trial ended. Annoying part will be to call every 6 months to renew this rate

Renewed my Select Subscription (I believe) for $23 and a few pennies for 5 months.

They wanted $54+ for 3 months and I said either cancel my subscription or gimme something cheaper. It worked.

You have to call, though.

Yippee-ki-yay...

After another attempt, I was able to get the $119 for one year of All Access (plus something like $21 for the new music royalty fee). I think they might be tightening up since I read on their website that all prices are going up on June 30th. That would explain why they are pushing shorter plans since after June 30 (http://www.siriusxm.com/2015rates/pricing).
