Default Sirius/XM How to get a better deal?

So one of our cars has Sirius and it expired today...the other (XM) will be expiring in couple of months. I looked into getting the select package as we only really listen to maybe 3 stations at most, but the traffic is a nice feature.

Anyway, best price I was given per year was just over $400 for both cars. Definitely doesn't seem worth it at all. If I could get Iheartradio in my car, the only thing I'd be missing is traffic, but not possible without going through my phone.

Just curious what you guys are paying.

Hold off and they will send you offers via email and standard mail.
Usually within a month of it being shut off.
Offer should be like $30 for 6 months. I have been doing that for a few years.
Pay by check, otherwise if you give a debt card or credit card they will charge you full amount after 6 months.

Call in and cancel the subscription. They will offer you a better price. They offered me 6 months for $40. They will also mail you some good offers if you can hold off.

Be ready for a 30 min phone when you call XM..

I actually just called in and cancelled on Tuesday.

Got the 3 free months when I bought my Raptor. I've gotten at least 2 or 3 mailings from them a month about renewing before my free trial ends.

What car is this for?

There is an Iheartradio app that streams music live you can play from your phone.

If it is the Chevy SS, I'd imagine your car has bluetooth and it would be so simple and free also.

I've been a subscriber for 12 years, and renewal time is a game. Just like with ISPs, you have to call and threaten cancellation, then the deals suddenly appear. I'm currently paying $29 for 6 months.

It's for the SS which still has a few moths of trial left. My wife's Explorer expired today. $30 for 6 mo's is great, but after 6 months it goes up to about $37 for 1 car per month after taxes. I'll give that a try if nothing else and see what happens after that 6 months is up.

I don't want to use my phone to stream Iheartradio, otherwise that would work out fine for me.

As above, call and tell them you're cancelling because it's too expensive. They will offer you something along the lines of $99 for 1yr (roughly $8/mo) say no, too expensive, is there anything cheaper? I hear you have a $30 6 month promo. They will give you that. $5/mo been doing it past 3 years.

This is from 2016 but the process is still the same.

How To Get The Best Deal on Sirius XM

How To Get The Best Sirius XM Deal:
STEP ONE: Dial and call 1-888-601-6302, then ask to be transferred the Sirius XMs retention department.

STEP TWO: Tell the CSR: My service is ending soon and is increasing in price as soon and I feel like Im not utilizing the service enough to match the price that I am paying each month

STEP THREE: After agreeing to keep the service, listen to offers but do not accept the first offers. The current three offers: The first offer is $99 for 12 months plus taxes/fees which is the equivalent to $8.25/month, then $49.97 for 6 months which is $7.99/month, and finally the CSR offers 5 months of service for a price of $25 plus taxes and fees. CSR will offer it separately, so you must be patient and wait for the best deal.

STEP FOUR: The agent read some terms and conditions along with some disclosures, then simply accept the best offer and enjoy your discounted, money saving Sirius XM subscription!

Yikes. Definitely call and threaten to cancel. That's a lot of $$

I have the system in the car but never activated it. I really want to but it's a bit rich for my blood.

It’s sort of a pain in the ass but I used to get it for 25 for 5 months you have to remember to call every 5 months or they start charging you like 25 a month

My buddy got a lifelong membership when they were a new company. He paid what I thought was a crazy amount back then...like just under $400. They've recently amended their policies and have been charging him taxes and other minor fees. I almost went with the deal when he did, but was worried they'd go down the same road as Voom for those of you that have heard of it.

I never tried negotiating in all the years. Right now I'm on the trial period with the newer car. When it's over, I can just say that I don't want to pay because of the price. I normally just stream from my phone anyway.

I have three radios and pay less than $100 a year each. I just call and tell them if they don't get my price below $100 I'm not renewing and it works every time. I do mention Spotify at least once during the call LOL.
