Just got my renewal notice this week, so figured I'd bump this thread to get a feel for any recent deals you cheap bastards may have been able to pull. My $120 rate for All Access they gave me last year when I called is coming to an end in May. My renewal is $273.22 for 1 year of All Access. $33.34 of this is a "US Music Royalty Fee." I don't even listen to the damn music channels. It's either Sportstalk or Stern. It would be nice if I could just get all the talk channels for a reasonable price, but of course you can't.
Anyway, chime in with any recent deals. No way in hell I'm paying the almost $300 for this $#@!.
They finally cut off my wife's '3 month trial' in her car. We bought the car October 2012.
I got an offer in the mail for 5 months/$20. I thought that was pretty good, but I don't think we'll renew now that we actually have to pay.
I pay $300 for 3 years on my wife's car, and $20/mo. on the boat for the "marine" package, but it has all of these marine weather channels and a bunch of other stuff. Plus anything with the word "marine" in front of it triples the cost.
including the young Marines you find on Craigslist?
Paying 120 per year for XM All Access and 140 for Sirius - close to all access. Don;t get Golf Channel. Got the 140 last weekend - the original bill was 270. I have a little flexibility since I have an unused Sirius Ala Carte receiver. They had to offer this as part of the merger and I have to point out to them that if they aren't flexible I will activate it for about the same price as they finally get down to.
25 bucks a month for all access.
Got renewal notice last week. Two years for 359.76 +taxes fees total 409.77. called to cancel . got immediately offered the $99 for 1 year. I asked for anything better and he said no. Then said I was going to cancel. He said ok. I cracked and took the $99 for 1 year. Still pleased.
Sirius XM Select is what I have.
XM Select for $20/5 months. Every time the 5 months are up, I call and say give me the same deal or cancel it. Continues to work. Don't need all access since I mostly listen to talk or the 70's-90's channels.
MIL's radio is on our plan and we added an additional internet subscription for her (she likes to play it in her store) for less than $25 for the year.
Just called to cancel my All Access effective May 4. They offered me the 1 year for $120 (which I had last year) and then $49 for 6 months. I told them no for both. They never offered me the $30 for 6 months, which I would have taken. Guess I could have asked for it, but I'm sure I'll be getting offers in the mail and via email to keep it connected. I'll probably bite on on of those.
I actually let mine expire and that's when I got that offer maybe 2 weeks later.
And I tried the approach in the post immediately above, and they said I needed to mailer code or somesuch.

$#@!ing forgot about this and see they charged a quarterly use of radio for 40 bucks or whatever. They'll hear about it in July and I'll get my 6 months for 20 again. $#@!s
Well, I called this morning and asked for the previous deal I had had. 1 year all access for $120. The nice Indian later gave it to me after a suspenseful hold. She said the deal was only for me, and that I need to promise not to tell anyone else. Please do not disclose my special deal to anyone outside this thread. Thank you.
They called my bluff, never heard from them again. I've managed without so $#@!'em
I ended up with 6 months for $20 when I cancelled last November. Hoping for the same thing when it renews. I cancelled in advance, so they should reach out any day.
I have a free year with my new car, but I honestly can't see myself renewing at any price. Pandora and FM is really all I need.
I guess it would be nice to have the sports channels the one time per year that I'm on a road trip during football season.
I re-load the 6 months for $30 everytime my contract expires. Usually I'm a couple days late which adds another couple bucks to it, but nothing unmanageable.
So does running Pandora through you phone really jack up your data usage? How do y'all get around that?
I'm about to expire. Gonna shoot for 6 months for $30...do they require a CC on file and doesn't that screw you into auto renews?
We got a free year of Serius when bought our Jeep in January 2007. 10 years later we still have the Jeep and have never paid a dime for Serius.
I don't stream it all the time, but I used just over a GB in the first month. I'd guess normal usage will be around 2-3GB/month for me now that I use it more. My car also has a built-in hotspot that I could use. Not sure how much the data costs for that.
Got 1 year for $100 yesterday when I told them I was cancelling effective July 1
I've got four cars on it, online streaming, all sports package channels. I think it's like $500 a year. How much off that can I save?
on the phone with them now. they offered $101 taxes and fees included for a year of all access and internet. not bad. said no. now he's talking to supervisor. update: 6 months all access and internet for $36. i said yes. i called with every intention of cancelling for real.
i don't think so, but maybe? i started by saying i wanted to cancel. at no point did i ask for their best deal.
Just got two new cars All Access and internet. Total price was $10/mo for 2 years plus $7/mo for two years for the second car. Took a lot of "no thanks" and callbacks.
The XM sound is terrible....
I always ask for the five month, $25 dollar deal but still have to go through the dance with them even though I tell them I won't do anything else.
My wife has her subscription on her tahoe. My 3 month trial is about to end on my Honda in July. Can I just let mine expire and then add my Honda to my wife's account? Anybody try this?
My subscription expired a few weeks ago, and I planned to chillax and let them come to me with a deal. Not sure if they tried calling me since I don't answer unknown rando toll free numbers that call, but yesterday I received the 6 months for $25 offer in the mail. It says you can even do it without calling by going to siriusxm.com/reactivate -- and it doesn't give any kind of offer code, so someone with an expired subscription may want to try to see if it works for them.
Mine auto renewed yesterday. Need to give them a call on my home from work and re-up the 5/25 deal or cancel. I'd like to add internet as well but not for $9/month. I'll see if they can throw that in as well.
I really only listen to a few of the music stations.
