    My daughter let her service expire. She waited two months. The retention dept. called from the USA. She was given 6 months for $24.99 or 12 for $86.00.

    She was told to call this phone number.

    My daughter had her radio and my radio on the same account and we dropped it. They sent her an email to do the 6 mo/$25 and I called and got mine activated on my own account at that rate. Will have to do the cancel deal and work the system to get a good rate in 6 mo, but that is the game we have to play.

    I like to be teased if I can save a few bucks.:)

    My trial period had just expired, so I called Customer Service to see what it would cost to renew the XM Select service in my new car. First price offered was "special rate" of $109.89 (still cheaper than the rate listed on their website). I declined, and was then offered $86.00, which I happily accepted!

    In addition, I inquired about my current home XM Select subscription, which was on a quarterly renewal. Great customer service rep offered me the same deal of $86.00 to convert that subscription to a year-long subscription.

    So, two radios, one year subscription each, $172.00 (before taxes and artist royalty fees). I'm pretty happy!!

    That's a pretty scary story, @ffdoug. Will have to be sure to check my quarterly subscription to see if they pull that on me next time it's due to bill, even thought the Customer Service rep assured me she'd converted the subscription. Thanks for the tip!!

    The $157.18 for two radios deal possibly included prorating, and possibly omitted royalty fees and state + local taxes. No detail was provided by the poster. Other posters in this thread have also mentioned the $86.00 promotional one-year rate. I got $172.00 for two radios for one year, that vs. $157.18 is quibbling a bit.

    Bottom line is if you push it a little, you can get a one-year XM Select subscription for $86.00 + $8.43 artist royalty fee + state & local taxes (varies, mine added up to $6.13 on the year). Still beats the web rate by miles.

    Sincerely just trying to provide detailed information and tips here for the benefit of the community.

    ETA: Actually, original poster updated his info in post #35 on that $157.18 deal (for a Sirius, not XM, subscription.) Sorry I missed that.

    I had got the $77 deal for the last 2 years but my wife just lost her job prior to the renewal time so I called really wanting to cancel. The CSR that answered the phone who sounded American immediately offered me the $77 deal (Now $95 with the royality fees, tax etc) when I declined they offerered me a 6 month deal that I cant recall - sorry should have written it down. Then he offered to give me the next 4 months free at which time i could cancel again or go ahead and let it renew for $46 and change. So I'm getting 4 months free at which time I can re evaluate my situation.

    I have called to renew each period that my subscription ends but this time it was an outradge.for my two radios last year I paid $145.86.when we called they said prices went up and they would give it to me for $159.59.I agreed because thats still $13.30 per month.
    I checked my credit card statement on line 3 days latter and they billed me the full
    price over $271.my wife called and they denied they made the offer I told her then cancel.
    I dont need this.they then offered a deal for about $190.I said no I will not go above
    the orig agreed price.they then offered a 6 month deal for about $50 each radio.I figured that is still more then the orig $159.59.they then made a final offer for $54.88 for 5 months.
    that was cheeper then the orig price.I agreed.they then credited back to my card the difference and we will play the game again in 5 months.be careful if you get a deal they dont bait and switch and charge you more.by the way I would have cancelled.I dont use it enough to fight .

    This is one reason I insist on being invoiced when renewal time comes around, so what happens is I get the initial outrageous renewal invoice in the mail, I call and get the "special" pricing, and then I tell them to send out an updated invoice. It's a bit of an additional hassle, but it avoids these kinds of issues.

    I have an XM.. I want to get in on the 6 for 25 offer, but that never includes channels like the NASCAR Channel which is most important to me, I could care less about howard or anything, but it seems everytime I want to get a package for NASCAR, they want to charge full price.. Has anyone got a 6 for 25 with a deal like that?

    I called and cancelled my 2 radios on Friday. Now today (Wednesday) just 5 days later, I get 2 letters in the mail to turn them back on for 6 months, $25 a piece. Pretty good deal I think but I haven't decided yet.
