I’ve had Platinum in one car and streaming for the last year for $10.70 per month. The deal is up and next month the price will increase to $29.79 per month. Any idea on my chances of negotiating a lower rate? Thanks.

Call them , cancel your subscription and tell them you will only renew if you get it for the same price you’re paying now. It always works.

I tried that, well I was demanding my $60+fees per year or I cancel, they would only do $99+fees. Per year.So I cancelled been a while now and never heard a peep from them not even any mail. I since learned to love streaming various radio stations instead. Much better music selection.

Sirius has bugged me with letters every so often, as I got 3 months when I bought my Kia. I can stream the free version of Pandora from my phone through the sound system easily.

You will get a snail mail letter with a better deal

It's been more than 3 months, nothing in tbe mail this time., Not that I care unless it's for $30. per year. It's just simply not worth the repetitive music they play. Better off putting it all on a USB stick and paly it on my car stereo. I don't listen to Howard Stern, since I'm on the west coast the last thing I'm interested in is hearing some replay from New York 3 hours later. I miss the good old days with Opie & Anthony and Tiffany Granath on Playboy Radio.

I heartily agree. I've been doing that since discovering my first Infotainment system in a 2012 300. I hear the best audio quality that way, and certainly much better than the over-compressed satellite channels. I still sub my new 300 to SiriusXM for $5 or 6/month, mainly to discover new music and buy it for my thumb drive.

I get 2 offers (for two unsubscribed car radios) at least once/week. I think it was $5 or $6/month if paid a year in advance with a free Amazon Dot.

I took advantage of an offer for three months for $2 (total). I didn't think about it at the time but this is their way of getting your credit card number, which is set to automatically renew at the $29 per month rate. I tried calling to cancel and got the run around (not being listened to, put on hold for several minutes, transferred around, told I couldn't be heard, hung up on). SiriusXM is the probably the worst business I've ever had to deal with when trying to cancel. I really feel like they run a scam. I finally got through using their chat but I don't trust them and I'm going to alert my bank that I cancelled and that no further charges should be honored. We'll see.

somehow, i've gotten my subscription to bill me about $13/month for 2 vehicles. Been like that for well over a year now. I see the charges monthly, and i check my account.

I still get offers for free echo dot $5/month for 6 months as I have another radio that i haven't used in years, but it's still listed in my account.

That is why I use a single-use card number with my Mastercard that I can generate online from my normal account Use this for everything that wants a required auto-renewal.

i don't do auto renew with sxm after all of the horror stories i heard.. plus when the time comes it gives me more leverage for a better rate. i get a paper bill from em still!!!!

Well, the Bozos keep changing the names of their packages, so I had to go look that up. Just renewing mine for $60/yr went from whatever it was called before to Music and Entertainment. Fine by me. I just tell them to cancel because the regular price is way to high for me since I listen to only one channel. <-- true statement
