    I had a trial sub on a new car. Started getting peppered with offers to continue for 6 mo at 29.99. Finally called and the lady signed me up for 6 mo at $25 and I didn't even ask. Really can't complain!! Their price stucture is all over the map so seems like pot luck what you actually get. They also tagged on a 3-month promotional deal which I don;t understand, but I'll ask about it when I get closer to expire on the current 6 mo deal.

    The biggest problem in their rate structure is their traffic add-on for the auto GPS. $7 a month?? I couldn't get the technology package on the car without navigation, but car people putting in navigation systems that require additional fees for traffic from xm is stupid considering my dashboard GPS has lifetime maps AND traffic for no additional cost. Of course, the car nav system is a premium price, but that is my problem of having more money than sense.

    My lifetime maps and traffic GPS picks up the traffic information from regional radio stations ... which means holes in coverage where those stations do not reach. But in most areas there is an FM station carrying the signal.

    I would not mind getting the signal from SiriusXM ... I have found few places where the signal is lost for more than a few seconds while going through a tunnel or heavy foliage (national park canopies). When I got the radio I expected more problems with the canyons of major cities than I have experienced.

    I probably should try to get one of the $25 for six month deals ... but I'd rather not fool with it every few months or accidentally get charged full price. I'm currently on a la carte and am paying just under $10 per month with tax and music fees.

    Called last month to cancel. Had been paying 14 a month for the sub in my car, the only sub I have. The customer service agent talked my into keeping it for 84 for a whole year.

    Called to cancel my 3-month free trial subscription (which ends in a month) and was offered 12 months for $107. Said no. Then was offered 5 months for $29.95. Said no again.

    Let the offers begin!

    They will. Within a month or so you will get a "PLEASE come back!" letter. If it doesn't offer you 6 months for $25 toss it out. That deal will be coming shortly after. :listening

    Just got the $25 for 6 months with no automatic renewal. They asked for permission to use my credit card now and at renewal. I asked if I had to give permission for them to use it at renewal.
    Then she offered the deal with no auto renewal. The auto renewal was going to be eighty something dollars for 6 months unless I called to cancel just prior to auto renewal.

    Great deal waxking1!! I called a couple of months ago, we have two new cars and the free period was about to run out. I got each car for 6 months $30.00 each. I wasn't as smart as you, I have to call in to renew or cancel in 6 months, hope my calendar keeps working for the reminder!!

    That auto renewal is a pain. Fortunately, I have an office with a lot of deadlines and effective dates so I have a very sophisticated tickler system named Diane. She does it for me and I am very grateful, but it still is a pain.

    I cancelled about 2 weeks ago after being a subscriber for about 7 years. The only thing they offered when I called to cancel was to change to monthly billing ( at $15/mo - I had last done a 3 year plan). When I said no thanks, they then offered just their Mostly Music plan for $10 a month. I again said no thanks. So far, that's all I've been offered. Wife is not too happy that she doesn't have satellite radio right now, but money is tight and I can't afford it at full price.

    My six month freebie trial is up, and I'm letting it go on both cars. The traffic information is abysmal, and the bit rate for music is low.

    Just let it run out, then get it for $25 or even 20.... for five months. Rinse, repeat.

    Well, I was all fired up with a price in mind and jotted down some ph# posters here used.
    I was told right away, "It is a good time to...."
    Was looking for $25/6mos. That is what was offered so no haggling needed today!
    Final figure all told was @29.96 for those 6mos.
    We're happy campers!
