That is a good price, and the EXACT same price I paid for my renewal last year, down to the penny. So its obvious they have preset amounts they can offer. I think it came out to just under $107 with taxes and canadian royalty bs so closer to $8.90 per month everything said and done. Last year my bargaining was genuinly not knowing if I wanted to resign with the Stern unncertainty. Not sure what my excuse will be this year I suspect I'll have to cancel for a while and hope they come through with a similar offer. I'm not too sure they're keen on too many back to back retention deals.
Today I called --1'st rep says 3 months @$45 for renewal or ~$164/year
I explained I know there are better deals out there & I will cancel if thats the best they can do. Got passed to retention rep. Indicating I have extended several times in the past & I want good 1 year deal & iIknow of recent $89.94 deals . No argument or BS - "If thats what you want I'll give it to you" Even got $4 credit for remainder of current deal.
My yearly subscription was up today. I was on a promo code I had gotten off of this site last year that was $75 plus the government fee's and taxes. I got my renewal last month and they were offering me $164.89 plus fee's and taxes.
Call them up today, say I'm cancelling because its too expensive. I'm immediately offered the same deal I have now, plus I can pay for it in two instalments if I wish. Apparently this deal was only available for another week (I call bs).
Bottom line, they'll deal, and you can easily get it for under $100 a year.
Hugh I wonder the same thing. My wife worked for Telus Mobility for several years when we were in university and she always said not many people realize that you can call retentions and get much better than list deals. That's how they make money, off of people paying the face rates for products. I'm sure Sirius is the same.
