If you cannot afford to pay the REGULAR PRICE of the subscriptions that you have in SiriusXM, then cancel the subscription! Y'all look pathetic by "threatening to cancel" for you to be able to get the promotions!
Nice 1st post, welcome to the forum.
I bought a Sirius Lifetime sub back when it looked like they were gonna die and that was $700 including the radio, I have paid full price for a XM sub up until 2 years ago when I decided the internet gave enough free content to make paying full price for 2 XM shows kinda pointless. so being cheap isn't the reason for wanting a discount.

I hate car lots for this very reason,I hate to haggle but your point is spot on!

. Either satellite radio is worth it to you at the price it’s being sold at or not. If it’s not worth it, don’t subscribe. I too pay full price for my XM Subscription (XM subscriber Since Aug, 2003) and Sirius Subscription (Sirius Subscriber Since Oct 2004), and have never once called up and asked for a discount. I’m satisfied with the service, I have no reason to complain, and want the service to improve, and it can’t improve without money
If the satellite company is going to offer a discount to keep a subscriber I see no problem with "playing the game" to get the best deal and I don't see how that is "ruining it for the rest of us". Keep in mind that Subscribers, even at a discount rate are worth it to the Sat. providers in the form of listeners for advertisers and that makes them money as well.
Satellite radio will "improve
" only by making the content provided unique to the service. Money plays a factor but have noticed that they are going more like regular radio and becoming less unique. Satellite radio is being run by regular radio guys and that will be their downfall,they cant see how to compete with the internet and no amount of money will save them if they don't do something to differentiate themselves from "free" content on the internet.
