    What is the latest Sirius XM discount available?

    Before anyone flames me....I did search but received conflicting results.

    My Sirius XM subscription is just about up.

    In the past, I was able to renew at a special rate of $77 for the year. That was the best rate that many Cadillac owners had been claiming to get.

    Is that the current best rate?

    What is the current best rate for Navigation & Weather? I know that is not included in the $77 price.

    Finally, I do know that you may even get a better deal by just threatening to cancel whereas Sirius XM will offer you 5 months for $20.

    Just want to find out the best way to go about this.

    Gah I just tried calling today.. they wouldn't budge.. my service expires tomorrow. I did ask about the $77 deal she said I did not qualify but wouldn't tell me why lol. I rarely use XM and the traffic on it is wrong about 90% of the time. Would like to keep it though!

    Should I call back later in the day or wait till after my free trial ends?

    You got to say, i would like to "cancel." They then send you to the cancellation dept, and the deals begin.

    Re: What is the latest Sirius XM discount available?

    Wanted to bring this thread back to light again.

    These folks at Sirius are such crooks if you let them be.

    I play this game with them year after year....

    They are always raising their rates.

    Back in 2011 and again in 2012, I renewed at $77 a year. This year it was double that price to renew.

    So, I went through the normal "game play" of saying I wanted to cancel. I was sent to the final operator who tried to give me a better price, but I didn't have enough faith that I was being given the absolute best price so I just cancelled the service.

    A month later, I get a letter sent to my home. 6 months of service for $25.

    What a deal!

    So, I get on the phone with the operator who tells me, "okay, $25 plus $5 royalty fees equals $30 for 6 months service."

    I said, "Hold on, this letter says $25. Nothing about extra charges. Forget the offer." The operator tells me he will remove the added royalty fees.

    Same thing happened to another person on this forum. He didn't want to provide a credit card so the operator said an invoice fee of $3-$4 was being added. The member said forget it, and suddenly the extra charges got removed.

    I have never seen a company that you have to play so many games with not to get taken advantage of.

    Fortunately, if you know how a service like SIRIUS operates, chances are if you keep telling them you want to cancel....and even end up doing so for a month....you will get the best deal to come back.

    The SiriusXM operators try and talk so fast and trick you into saying yes to add on things that they're about as bad as F&I guys at dealerships.

    Re: What is the latest Sirius XM discount available?

    So here's the little trick that those little crooks pulled on me....

    Just got a confirmation of my renewal.

    They did charge my credit card $30 after I negotiated $25.

    They gave me a *non refundable credit* of $5 on the account to make up the difference.

    So, what if I never renew again? I'm still paying more than I should have.

    So, now I have to call SiriusXM back and cancel my subscription in order to get my total amount refunded.

    Siriusly . You own a Cadillac and you're upset by a $5 fee? I, too,have played this game with XM since my first radio several years ago. But there always comes a point where I am satisfied with my deal on both radios and just take the deal I am offered and move on and enjoy the service. I always try for a 12 month deal so I only have to deal with them once a year. I'm good through January 2015 for both cars.

    It's not the $5 fee.

    It's the games that you have to play with Sirius to get the best deal and the underhanded extra fees that they add until you call them out on it.

    Really, I bet the Better Business Bureau would be very interested to hear about these deceptive practices. I know Sirius was caught by them a few years back for playing renewal games.

    I suppose it depends how hard you want to bargain and go round-and-round on the phone. I just got a year of XM Select + TravelLink + NavTraffic for 1/2 price without spending more than 10 mins on it. That was good enough for me.

    ^^^^

    It can be done -- and it doesn't take more than 10 minutes.

    You just turn down the first offer and go for cancellation. They'll give you a good deal.
