My 12 month trial ended a few weeks ago and I told them not to renew, holding out for a better offer...

That off came today, 12 months at $5 a month for the select package, it's about 68 a year with taxes. Seemed good enough compared to the 79 I've seen before or the 99 they offered me originally.

Don't know that this is an exceptional deal, but some savings at least.

I just set a reminder on my phone for the auto renewal so I can cancel before getting stuck with a surprise.

Yes, that's pretty good. If you want Sirius, it probably won't get any better than that. We're paying about twice that amount, and 2 vehicles. But it's worth it to us.

You'd think with a company as old as that they'd stop with the pricing games.

I have to go through this same dance with Comcast (Xfinity) and with Sirius.
...threaten to cancel, negotiate back and forth, and then finally they give me a decent offer....

Start over again a year later when they bump up the price to their "regular" one.
Been a loyal Comcast subscriber since 1993. Never missed a payment...and I have to go through this game over and over...ridiculous.

ahhhh....now I feel better after ranting.

I have been doing the 5 months for $25 deal for a few years. But it is also a select package. A friend of mine pays $35 for 6 months, and gets everything (including NFL).

I will ask for that one at my next renewal.

They offered me the deluxe (with the incl streaming) 6 mos for $30, but I read online about some folks having that auto-renew 90 days before expiring, and it auto-renews at full price.

I've got more streaming music services than I need now, don't need another one at this point.

Sirius gets under my skin too with their "ad free" channels, they're full of ads for other Sirius channels and packages... I guess they consider those PSA rather than ADS?

I cancelled my "six months free with new purchase" deal when they charged me $25/mo from the very start. Never saw any free service period.

Now I keep getting offers in the mail claiming 5 months for $25 but when I read the fine print I find what they really mean is it's $25/mo for 5 months then it goes to the full price until you cancel.

Seems to me if they really want to keep customers they need to stop letting lawyers write their offers and put the **** things in plain english without all the weasel words and fine print. Until then, I'll listen to my CDs.

We don't listen to radio when traveling. In 2007, we bought a MH with a 12 month free subscription. We turned it on a time or two and forgot about it. About 2 or 3 years later, we discovered we still had SiriusXM radio. We sold that RV this year, and the SiriusXM was still playing. (I am sure that whoever ends up with that MH will believe we are unwittingly paying for the service.)

I bought a new F-150 this year with a 6 month subscription that expires 12/1/17. We turned it on to be sure it worked. In a couple of years, I will turn it on to see if it is still live.

I really like the Service and am willing to pay for it. I think I pay $20.00 per month for everything, sports, talk, music, and access to all the channels through the streaming app. I use it all the time in the car and on my phone at work to listen to music.

Thanks!

I've been renewing every six months on my 2014 Ram for $25 for the 6 months since my free year expired in July 2015! I just set my Google calendar to remind me.
