Just spoke with customer Rep.
It's pretty easy getting a promo price
I kept getting 3 months for the price of 1, but you have to keep calling them every 3 month. What a pain!
She offered 50% for a full year, so I took that even though it was more expensive, but I get peace of mind for 1 year.

I just got off the phone with a Rep as well.
Getting any promo price is easy, just as homer_j mentioned, but I quoted the promo price of 89.94 + taxes and was told that offer expired March 31 at midnight. There was no way she could offer it until it becomes available again.

They offered $40 off 1 year subscription. Then 6 months for the price of 3, and then finally 3 months for the price of 1. She told me to take that with the hopes of a new promotion coming around after my 3 months were up.

In the end, I'm paying $16.38 for 3 months. If I deal with calling them 4 times this year, and take the 3 for 1 deal each time, a year subscription would cost me $65.52 including taxes and fees.

That's not to shabby!

AAARRRGGHHH!!!

Why do they make it so difficult? ...and inconsistent.

I've called twice in the last month to renew my sub which expires end of month but got nowhere.
Talked to several people and eventually cancellation dept where I asked again(nicely) if there were any deals at all to avoid me cancelling.

The last CSR did mention a "Music only" package for 10$/month which I declined and proceeded to cancel.

Sorry, had to vent a little after reading all these posts from people getting 50% off deals.

$90 all in

I sent Sirius an email telling them I wanted to cancel at end of my subscription. They emailed back that I had to call to cancel so I did. I was offered a deal at just over $100 plus tax for the year and I told them I would consider it. I had removed my credit card info from my profile and was quite prepared to live without satellite radio and then I received my credit card statement with a charge of $196 from Sirius. I lost it and called them up and told them to reverse the charge immediately. During this call I was offered the $90 deal all in for one year. I took the deal along with their apologies for charging my credit card without my approval!

I let my free subscription run out last october and got
cards in the mail with promo codes.
The one I got this week is very tempting since they
also waive the activation fee

I've been a lie down for years. It's time for me to push back.

I go the same card in the mail. $20 for 5 months. Took the deal but I had to sign up for an extension period which will not be billed to me until after the 5 months is up. The rep said to just call and cancel before then if I don't want to continue service.

I just called to cancel before my auto-renew comes up and was initially offered 1/2 price of around $106 with taxes and fees. I said I would be more comfortable with something around $85 all in. They offered the music only package for $85.65 all in, so I took it. It's on auto renew again, so I'll have to keep an eye out next year.
