I had to threaten to cancel to get the $77 rate. Had them mail an invoice to pay by Cashiers check. Don't give them your CC # or they will try to renew you each year at full rate.
Sometimes it depends on who you talk to...try again. Be nice and they'll work with ya.i said no thanks hoping he would counter but that was that....wth?
Similar thing happened when my XM Everything subscription expired on Mar 6, 2011. XM reps refused to allow the $77 renewal deal, called my bluff, closed my account. But then on same day I searched and found $77 discount code online, called XM back, reopened my account, and got 15 mos. for $91.72 total (12 mos. + 3 mos. free for reopening my closed account, ha!). That's actually a better deal than 12 mos. $77. Thanks again, XM.what gives? i called w/ the 77 deal and the guy talked to his supervisor - then he came back and asked if i got a letter w/ a code - i said no my neighbor told me about it and he said hold - then he only offered a 169 deal for a year - i said no thanks hoping he would counter but that was that....wth?
