Then in 6 months you pay full price. I'd rather have a 1 or 2 year deal.

No then in 6 months i cancel again. I have got the 6 for $25 offer a few times now.I refuse to pay $17 or whatever it is a month now. Its just not worth it to me.

I also recently renewed XM for 6 months for $25. Had them send me an invoice so I can mail them a check. I've never paid full price.

How long is the wait for a new 6 months deal? I don't like the idea of downtime.

You said "6 for $25 offer a few times now". So no more than 5 days every time?

Yes bit I didn't say that. Last 2 year deal I got was about $7/month for expanded channels a year ago. I would take $8-9 deal now.

My subscription expires next week. I replaced my 9 year old receiver with a XM snap and called to see if I could get a promotion. No dice. I took a 3 month subscription at full price and will try again in July. :(

Bought a new car around the first of March.
Never had SiriusXM before.
I'm not liking what I am reading here about their shady billing practices.
My question is this:

Before this 3 month trial runs out do I need to do anything?
It seems to me that if I don't do anything, they don't have a leg to stand on.
Yet I've read in other places about people saying they did nothing and a few months later they are getting letters/calls from collection agencies.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

I've already made up my mind I won't do business with these clowns just on principle...

My XM sub expires on Apr 22. I called SiriusXM yestersay to see what they could do. The renewal price was about $159+15.62 royalty fee.

After some juking back and forth, the guy said he really had no offers and would cancel the sub. I said OK. He said he was sorry to see me go etc and my sub would be cancelled on April 22.

I asked again if he was sure there wasn't a 3 month or 6 month deal available. He said No. He then asked what I listen to. The wife and I listen to about half a dozen or so music channels. The rep then suggested I could reduce the price by selecting a music only subscription. The price for our channels went down to $9.99/month. I OK'ed this. It's a month-by-month subscription so I can cancel/upgrade ata any time.

Please post here if you get one of the year long deals at $77 or $89 or whatever they offer.

Thanks!

My 2nd radio was up for renewal at the end of april , I called and they gave me a year for $ 70.00 which is for premier. This is the fifth year in row they hav e given me at least 1/2 off. My wife's primary radio was given 1/2 off premier in dec '11 . I just ask what they can do for me so I won't cancel. I have been with XM since they came aboard .

I'm having problems getting a deal that was offered to me.

I originally had Sirius in my car but it broke down and I didn't use it for ~3 years. Just got the car fixed up again and called to see what they could do for me. I was offered something around $6-$8 a month for a year, can't remember exactly. At the time I wasn't sure what my plans were for the radio so I didn't take it. Asked if I called back later if I can get the same deal. The rep assured me that I could. I then called in about a week later to take the offer. This rep said I needed to have something in the mail giving me this offer. I said no, and I would like to speak to a manager. The rep then said let me try again, came back and said she can give it to me about the same price but I would have to pay for the entire year.

How can I get the original offer? I'm not going to pay $90 for radio in my car, it is a cash flow issue.

Thanks

$25 is a good deal, I just renewed a couple weeks ago and they only gave me $45 for 6 months. Still better than full price.
