Don't have that handy but I didn't need it, just referenced it and asked if they would honour it. Rep almost bit my hand off to sign me up.

Just call and ask for it, tell them you're not sure how much you'll use the radio and this is a good way for you to try. Good luck.

Just purchased a new vehicle (Ford Focus 2012) and had assumed it was registered to Sirius Canada. Entered my VIN number on the Sirius Canada site and saw that it said it wasn't activated w/ Sirius Canada although there was programming available.

Called SiriusXM and registered both my VIN and ESN numbers. No problem. However, only received a three-month free trial (vs. 6 in Canada). But, the big thing for me is the ability to add the Sirius Premier package so that I can get the Opie & Anthony channel, plus the NHL Home Ice & MLB Network Radio. Then the CSR gave me a discount for the premier package, and then gave me half off my INNO sub, which is on the XM side! FTW!

So, what I was most made aware of is that, when you buy a car in Canada, it's not already registered to/activated with Sirius Canada. You can activate it w/ SiriusXM (providing you have a US address, etc.). Very happy to have my mornings w/ O&A again!

Just lost my reception after almost 3 years of free XM that came with my '09 Toyota that I bought in the US. I guess all good things must com to an end. I finally had to sign up and got 6 months for $27.55 all in with a Montana address. Used my Canadian cc and phone # with no problems.

I called up for a new subscription and used my parents address in the states with my Quebec phone number and Canadian cc. They first offered me 6 months for $25 but that was only XmSelect. I said I wanted stern so to forget it. Called back got a new rep and she gave me 6 months of XMPremire for $39 after taxes and royalties. Took 5 mins. No codes. No hassle. No questions.

I set a reminder in my phone for 6 months. I'll call up theaten to cancel and get the same deal or better. Also got a $50 rebate on my vehicle connect device which was oly open to US accounts. Glad I did my research. Saved myself $200.

Say what?

Following the rapid demise of a Starmate GTX and a Stiletto, I purchased a Stiletto 2 from Future Shop in 2010 and this thing is subbed to my US account and works just fine.

6 months after buying my used Ford Fusion, Sirius finally decided that I ought to pay them for the privilege of listening.

Comparison shopped between Sirius US and Canada, but ended up signing up for the US service as they gave me Sirius Premier for 6 months for $34.99 (could have got Select for $24.99). I'll decide if the extra channels are worth it before my next renewal.

Canadians are missing a lot of football games.
Sirius puts a lot of the NFL football games on random channels, many of which are not available with the Canadian subscription. Therefore with the Canadian subscription we miss a lot of the football games we were promised to get. They should at give us the channels while the games are on if they can't find channels available in both countries.

Cool

I just noticed that. I bought a new sirius radio. I have yet to activate. I looked at cdn versus us subscriptions.

Even with the low cdn dollar, the us sub offers more for less. All the sports games included with one of the us packages.

I am new to the entire Sirius XM thing so hopefully someone can help here. We have SiriusXM in the car we just got. SiriusXM Canada retentions/cancellations has offered $107 CDN (all in with tax and royalty, they claim). I called SiriusXM USA, they wouldn't give me any pricing aside from the standard pricing. They said I have to get SiriusXM Canada to release the account and then once USA saw it as free, they could then discuss pricing.

stationg, what were they offering you price wise. I gather the USA service gives you more sports for less cost...

Actually I forget the retention promo I have. But it was less than 6 months for $25. Maybe 5 months. I later called and had the credit card taken off my account so it won't auto renew.

The past few days they keep calling. I don't answer and they don't leave a message.

I was looking to buy a different receiver off ebay but the seller emailed me and said she doesn't have it anymore lol. So I'm gonna keep looking for the specific radio.

Good,luck and yes based on the regular prices usa version definitely more bang for your buck. Even with the exchange.
