XM subscription renewal time again...any discount codes? - Page 11

post #301 of 461
Wanted to renew but feigned the cancellation ruse and I scored 5 months for $25 (each) for both XM Premier in my Ridgeline and Sirius Premier in my BMW. That works out to $60/year, plus royalty fees.

Reupped for whatever the standard Sirius plan is last week for about $93 for 1 year, taxes and fees included. I called to cancel, told 'em I liked it but it was too expensive, was immediately offered this price. Maybe I could have held firm for a better offer but this was good enough for me.

I never have XM until I bought a new car in Feb and listen in to it.

Unless you drive alot on the road, I dont think this is necessary.

I rather listen to local news and local traffic on radio and I watch nation and world news on TV.

It's definitely not for everybody, but if you do drive a lot, it's worth it (if just to avoid the endless commercials on ota radio). Also, there's a lot of great original programming that's not available anywhere else.

As of the 1st of this month, I called to cancel before the end of year on our package, and was offered the 5 month deal for XM Select and took it. )

That is about $6.00 per month after taxes and charges. Just have to remember to check in and cancel before the end of my 5 months has come.

Also, the thread is about renewal deals . . . not the perceived value of XM/Sirius.

I always shred any XM/Sirius renewals, which seem to arrive in the mail about every other week. So it probably isn't necessary for me to comment on the perceived value of their "service".

The current 'deal' is for 6 months for $25. After taxes and the $2 statement fee (Not using CC) it still comes to under $30.

No Jeff. That is about the best you can do. I got the same deal in February. Only thing you and I "possibly" could have bitched about was maybe getting the internet service added on for free. That would be about it.

But with Iphone apps(plus other device apps), I do not belive they will do that anymore.

At $7.75/month($93/year) I think it is still worth it. Once it goes over $10/month(the original cost for XM per month), I will be done.

I got half off both Sirius and the online version. Total after taxes/fees was $113.03 The lady even told me to call back next year before my contract was up to resubscribe at a lesser rate. The best deals I have found have been to just call each year before your contract would be up and threaten to cancel. They've always given me at least half off.

I'm coming up on my sub expiring(2 days) and I will do the "cancel my sub routine"for the 5th time. I used to worry they would call my bluff,but now I have a 3 month backlog of podcasts and they continue to pile up. If they cancel fine I can live without it. I will pay 5 bucks a month for O&A and R&F,they are the only reason I keep the sub to XM.( I do however have a lifetime sub to sirius so I am not totally without sat. radio)


They usually offer between 20-30 bucks for 5-6 months,offered at end of the call with customer retention. I tell them I rarely listen anymore and don't see the need to pay for something I hardly use. That usually get them to offer the final rate they can, I guess I will find out if it still works....

UPDATE
I called them and tried the "cancel my sub" routine they offered 2 months free,I declined then they actually CANCELLED my sub! No fuss or hassle just goodbye,I tried to negotiate the 6 month plan but they declined saying they no longer offer it.So that was interesting but hey I haven't paid full price in over 2 years so I have had a good run...

Of course today they just sent me an email offering 6 months at $4.17 per month for xm select, which gives me O&A and Ron & Fez so I lost a week but got the deal again. I wonder how long this can go on, but hey I'm happy!

I just called & got 1/2 off the XM Family Premier package. The # I called was 1-866-635-5020.
The CSR made me work a little bit but when I told her I had to have last years deal or I was cancelling, she blinked!!)
post #314 of 461
Got the 6 months for $25 in the mail and just had to do it again. Terrestrial radio really is horrible...glad to be back. Couldn't even last a month.
post #315 of 461
Yeah I think I'm going to go for it again too. FM radio here in D/FW is also lousy with only one station playing the kind of music I like.
post #316 of 461
Just got an e-mail letting me know my car's XM is now on for free for the next two weeks. Glad I held out.

Yeah, but it's only a handful of channels.
post #318 of 461
Yeah, and? The channels I listen to are all there, and are free for the next two weeks. And when I sign up for the 6 month deal, I'll have all the channels that matter to me on my radio with all the music I care to listen to, commercial free.

When I got two free months it was for everything.
post #320 of 461
Just looked at the e-mail again. It's 60 channels for me. Don't think I could put them all in just one hand.

It's a promotion for former subscribers that only includes certain channels.
post #322 of 461
I just again renewed my cars #2 and #3 for an annual contract. Took 5 calls until I got someone in the U.S. who was authorized to make a deal for a long time customer. It was far better than their standard deal and better than the $25 for 6 months + royalty and tax. My annual subscription had 3 more weeks to run. So keep calling until you get someone who can offer a discount. My plan is the Serious Select package (130 plus channels) and includes an Internet ans android subscription for my phone.

Hello all, i am new to Sirus, and I have a 08 Jeep Commander, and I was thinking about getting Sirus. I do have a radio that has Sirus, but i need to put a order in.. So, my question is what deals are there for a 1st time subscripter. I was hoping that less than 10.00 per month for a 1st timer. What do u all think.. thanks Steve.. Ocean, NJ
post #324 of 461
I am still able to renew for $77 a year. Been doing that since I first started with them in 2008.
This includes XM Select and Internet Radio.
post #325 of 461
^ ^ ^ Ok. . . it would be really more help if you could tell the forum here how you are able to repeatedly get $77/yr. renewal. A phone number you called and what you say would really be the most help.

Otherwise , this just sounds like a bit of baloney.tongue.gif
post #326 of 461
Didn't think about that. I just call the normal number, just before the end of the subscription. Tell them I want to cancel.
They always ask how could they keep me. And I tell them to keep me on the $77yr subscription, otherwise I will just switch to Slacker or Pandora.
Works everytime.
post #327 of 461
$77 a year is an average deal, certainly not a great deal. Several people on here including myself consistently get it for an average of anywhere from $4 to $5 a month per radio.

Does that include Internet Radio?
post #329 of 461
Has anyone got any deals that include the NavTraffic? I am on the $95/year XM Select plan and want to add the traffic for $3.99/mo. They are telling me they will not give you that rate on traffic unless you are full price on the audio at $14.49/mo.

(Basically they want $200+ a year for XM Select + traffic for 12 months) which I am not willing to pay. I just want to add traffic for $48 on top of the $95 I am already paying.

Nope. Sorry, I missed that part of your post. Sounds like a much better deal now. wink.gif
