Anybody successfully renew their 3 month XM radio trial with a discount WINBACK code? I still have a month left of my 3 month trial and would like to extend my subscription for a year. I did get a letter in the mail this week asking me to pay $38.85 for 3 months which is more than I want to pay at this point. I've seen posts on other sites about $60 & $77 WINBACK promos but some of them might have expired. Suggestions?

Colorado huh? what part?
I actually let mine expire then recieved an offer for $5.95 for 3 months. I paid my three months and have had it for nine months. No bill sine. free for 6 months! I work at a dealer and suggest you let it expire and wait for a offer.

Littleton, southside Denver suburb. Good to know to let it expire and see what happens. That was my fallback plan if nothing else came up.

You may want to also look into a long term rate. If you get an offer for $6/month, call and see if you can pre-pay for two years at that rate. Then you don't have to worry about the rate every three months. You get any unused portion back if/when you cancel, or you can transfer it to another radio if you sell your car.

I pre-paid my first XM radio for two years before the rate went up a few months back (from $9.99 to $12.99/month). Yes it was a $240 outlay, but I listen to XM daily, and won't buy another car without it. When I got my second unit on the family plan ($6.99/month) I called to see how it works with a prepaid plan. They let me sign up for 24 months at that rate. I pre-paid the $168, but I don't have to worry about it again for two years.

Good advice. I'll keep that in mind as I let my XM expire and wait for the winback call.

Who did you buy your CTS from? Im originally from boulder/longmont area. I used work at a cadillac dealer there.
FYI- XM is having major billing problems I have had free service for over six months. I also have a client that has free service for a year. Also a XM rep told me there is thousands of connected radios that should be disconnected. Let expire then reactivate for the special offer...

Sorry for opening this older thread back up. I just wanted to post an update.

My 3 month dealer trial expired yesterday as scheduled. XM worked on the way into work in the morning and was inactive on the way home in the evening. The only thing that worked was Channel 1 Preview. This morning I called:

800-682-4114
asked for WINBACKZ promotion code
$77/yr was the rate

I gave them my CC# and was back in service. Total time from start of call to back in service was 5, maybe 10 minutes. Sweet!
