Did you really need to quote that entire post in your reply?

I paid $131.71 for the All Access package in 2013, got a better deal of $119.88 in 2014 and an even better deal of $115.88 in 2015.

In 2016, they charged my credit card $277.95 for the auto-renewal. That's more than I paid in 2014 and 2015 combined. When I called to negotiate, the best deal they offered me was $156. So I canceled.

Now, I get email and snail mail offers for 5 months at $24.99 for the Select package almost every month. Not interested.

They have a horrible business model and I always dreaded the call to haggle over the price. Besides, a lot of the content I listened to (CNN, CNBC, NFL, NCAA) can be streamed from their app to my car audio over the bluetooth connection in my car. Sound quality is virtually the same although the CNBC app is buggy.

+1 I have been gone over a year and do not miss it one ounce. You can get Howard other ways. Screw Him.

I love XM radio no doubt. I have paid for (2) "lifetime" subscriptions, however...

Anyone else get a courtesy email today from SiriusXM?

Seems they are changing subscription plans to monthly.

Guess when my subscription ends in January that's it.

I'm not paying $15 a month for something I use a few times every week.

That is the standard regular rate, so they are simply giving you a heads up that you can expect to start paying more in January. Call them the day before your current subscription expires to cancel and you should be able to get a discount for multiple months.

I always have luck by doing this doing this:

Existing customers can get 50% off or more on SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription without a coupon code. Currently they are offering 5 months for $25 including tax! Some were quoted $89 for 1 year. Some have re-tried with a different rep if the customer service rep did not give them the deal.

1. Call 1-888-601-6302

2. Tell the CSR (Customer Service Rep) that you would like to cancel because of the price and they will offer you a lower price.

If CSR doesn't offer, cancel the cancellation request and just be honest and that you wanted the $89/year offer. Also, 6 months for $45.

The normal quarterly and yearly prices were no discount compared to monthly.

As was noted above, I'll not pay 15/mo for something that I only use a few times a week.

Looking at it, TV apps have spoiled me when I consider what I get from Netflix for $11.99/mo or even free from the other channels. IMO "normal price" from Sirius is just completely out of line for such LQ audio.

I put the cancellation notice w phone number and account Info in a calendar entry for April 18 next year. I'll not let it roll over!

Thanks for your help on this thread.

Cheers.
