I just received a card from Sirus XM that they renewed the subscription and it appeared to be twice the amount I was paying.  I would appreciate it if you would share what you are paying monthly for your XM before I call to negotiate a new price.  I checked online with different posts and it varies from $5 -20 monthly if purchasing for 1 car.  I appreciate any input.   Thanks.

Re: Sirius XM

I had a trial and let it expire and then re-subscribed for $99 for one year.

 

What I've read on here is to call before it renews and tell them you are going to cancel and see what they offer.

 

I have it on my calendar for when mine is set to renew (April).  However, I got an email yesterday from them telling me my credit card on file for renewal has expired.  So they can't renew me even if I forget .

Re: Sirius XM

I call them a week before the expiration date to negotiate a new price.  Tell them you will cancel if you don't get a good price, then they will make you three offers.  I usually reject the first two and take the last and final offer.  I just paid $37 (inc tax) for 5 months.

We just cancelled ours after having it for years, but they did try to get us to stay with a great rate. Offered 6 mos. for $35 plus tax.

Re: Sirius XM

I might add the streaming service next time if they quote me a good price.  I would like to stream it on my Echo Shows.

Re: Sirius XM

I have two cars with Sirius; the first has a lifetime membership, purchased in 2006 for $300 and the second, I negotiated about $8 a month and it expires in August 2019.  I marked it on my calendar and will negotiate like crazy.  We really love Sirius, especially since we take many 1000mi  + trips across barren land (usually many hours across the desert).

Re: Sirius XM

Agree that you should turn down the first negotiated offer as the 2nd/3rd are uaually better.

 

I got a 5 mo. renewal for under $50/all fees included a month ago. One vehicle and Select package.

 

Gotta say the Holly channel this year sux!! I don't think they are paying royalties for better artists.

Re: Sirius XM

We have had it in my husbands car that we bought in 2016.  Every March they bill me in the mail some ridiculous price like $299.99.  I call and explain that we hardly use the car now, and that I will only pay $99.00 a year PERIOD.  The last two times I called it worked out.  They add taxes and fee so it cost about $115 after that.

I think we're paying around $110.00 a year.
