    I currently have 2 vehicles running SiriusXM All Access promotions. One of them expires Dec 3. I have called trying to get a better deal but they are NOT budging from the $21.99/month plus fees and royalties. Yearly total price of about $320.

    Anyone have ideas to reduce the cost but keep All Access?

    We put 5000 miles a year on our car and seldom travel out of the local area so have no need for Sirius after the free trial on our last new car. We're happy with the free Amazon music files that come with our Amazon Prime subscription. Our car radio is usually tuned to KUSC for classical music, KJZZ for jazz, or KNX for news.

    You have to endure the totally unpleasant experience of cancelling your service. They will eventually offer you some sort of deal to try and keep you.

    Doesn't the All Access include streaming? Either car have Bluetooth and do you have an unlimited data plan on your phone? Is so, downgrade to one account and use streaming in the second car.

    Or as suggested, cancel and wait for the Returning Customer deals.

    I called on Monday and was able to get the same deal I had this past year, $8.00 a month plus their fees.

    My latest "come back to the fold" offer was 12 mo. @ $5/mo. I usually use my own music on a thumb drive, so doing a phone/bluetooth connection once in a long while is good enough for me.

    Or just use your existing aux input or bluetooth and skip the silly Echo Auto crap.

    Problem solved even more!

    "skip the silly Echo Auto crap."

    Ah angryman indeed. You sound like a swell TG guest. LOL

    Here's some more envy fueling info - got about 15 Echos between primary and vacay home and BMWs and 911.

    I called again this morning. My subscription was set to renew tomorrow at full price. They gave me a 50% discount if I stayed with All-Access. I was pleased with that.

    no worries if you didn't get your deal. trust me they would be sending you mailers via snail mail and calling you and blowing up your phone with offers!!! or you could keep calling back and playing russian roulette and getting some csr torture to get the deals!!! been a subscriber since 2007 and i have never paid full price!!!

    Half Price is a fair deal. Full price is just WAY too much for radio. We have three cars with SiriusXM and at Full Price we would just cancel or go to the internet only and stream in the car.

    My wife's car was up for renewal Friday. I called yesterday. $217 for the year. "Too high". Then he immediately offered $99 for the year. I told him I had an email for an old radio where the plan was $5 per month plus fees. He said I can get that. Done. Two minutes on the phone.

    You are doing it wrong. We have Full Access in one car and Echo Auto in the other two. So that is Full Access (plus Alexa) in 3 cars for the price of one.

    That a lot, but then you have two homes and are using two cars.

    In our one home using one car we have two 1st Generation Echos (the first purchased in 2014), two 1st Generation Echo Shows, one 2nd Generation 10" screen Echo Show, one Echo Auto, a Day 1 Editions of Echo Frames Eyeglasses, and a 2nd Generation Fire TV Cube which besides providing streaming TV is a full-service Echo.

    It's a good thing no one in our family is named Alexa....
