    Just called in to cancel; they gave me the same deal I have now (All Access) for the same $8.33/month for 6 months plus a free Amazon Echo Dot at around the same price I paid 6 months ago ($60). They also told me I was beating the 2019 2.3% royalty increase by a couple of days (I mentioned the email I got a few weeks back)

    Momma likes having Sirius/XM in the car. We have Sirius/XM in the car. Momma is happy.

    My All Access promo that I got last year at this time was up tomorrow. I was on a 1 year deal $119.88 for 12 months + $16.66 taxes and fees and was set to go to $305 for 12 months ($251.88 + $53.90 fees). Called today and told them I cannot afford to keep the package at that price. They offered me 1 year All Access renewal for $152.96, $126.00 + 26.96 fees. Essentially going from $11.38 a month to $12.75 a month. I accepted without hesitation. Momma is happy. The Royalty fees have really increased over the last few years. I listen some in the car but I listen a lot using Alexa and on my desktop at work in the background so I don't mind paying for it because I use it. The regular price is outrageous though. Did I mention Momma is happy?

    I re-upped yesterday ... had a hard time understanding the guy, like always ...
    I was able to get the same package I had for my 2 radios (in vehicles) and streaming for about the same price I had before ... which I was happy with, as thats all I find the service worth, I would have turned it off years ago, except she likes to use it on the computer and in her vehicle.
    I only use it during Football season for the most part.

    As an added bonus, since I just got a new Sony TV it has a Sirius App on it, so I can listen to it IN the home, therefore I'm sure I will use it more often ... previously they made it so you had to have another sub and pay for a Home radio set up which I didn't want to have to deal with.

    If one stays on major highways and close to major population centers. Outside of those regions, streaming is pot luck
    I don't care for streaming. Live sports events on the stream are 3 to 4 minutes behind real time.
    No thanks.
