Ouser Just did my obligatory annual call in. First csr could not/would not help, transferred to retentions, offered the streaming/car package for 150$, I said I had seen it online for 99$.

Then offered the car only package for 99$, I replied I had seen the car only package for 30$ for 6 months. I said I would not pay more than 60$ per radio for a year's service. They agreed.

Such a dance. Crazy practice.

ExDilbert All lifetime subscription sales were stopped several years ago. I think they were limited to the life of the radio before that.

jeffaustin90 Does Sirius still offer a lifetime subscription? My buddy paid about $400 a decade ago, a one-time fee, and he still has it to this day. I tried looking online for the same offer but can't find any info on it.

ExDilbert That's a move in the right direction. The Essential Package is similar to the SiriusXM Select package but lacks all the sports as well as Howard Stern. I signed up for the 6 month $5/mo SiriusXM Select package promo and called to cancel when they wanted to increase it to $16.99/mo plus fees. When I told the CSR it was too expensive she just cancelled it. I haven't received any offers by email either. What a lame company. When I had the US SiriusXM they always gave me a discount offer. Just how much do they expect to get for streaming radio when the competition is often free. iHeartRadio and Pandora are US$5/mo. Livexlive (formerly Slacker) is about US$2-$3/mo.

... then $8 per month thereafter.
"A Music Royalty and Administrative Fee (MRF) of 10.2% of the subscription price and taxes apply." That makes it closer to $9 plus tax. I'll wait for the free preview or a better offer.

Dave Bonang My 6 month promo expires next month and I think I will probably cancel the service. My wife and I enjoy it but we are retired and on a fixed income and can’t really afford to pay full price. We only listen to a couple stations and probably not worth the money. If they offered me a decent 12 month promo I’d probably consider it if it was reasonable. I wonder if SiriusXM offers a senior discount ?

Another thing....I have a lifetime US subscription on an old portable radio in my old truck that it rarely use but the service is still active. I wonder if I could transfer that over to my car after the promo ends and I cancel next month ?
Just wondering.

dm_4u I called in on June 14, first guy wouldn't budge off $333.

After 5 minutes flipped to second guy.

He offered a one year package: SiriusXM All Access (includes all channels and online access) for $151 all in so I took it. (seemed fair to me)

Called in, after 45 minutes on hold was offered $6 a month for six months. Told them no and they offered the same for a year and I took it.

retiredguy Called in renewed for 1 year $5 a month , total approx $75 with tax and fees. They of course wanted more until I mentioned there online ad for this special.

Exid0r Expiring package: SiriusXM Select 6 Months promo at $36 + $5.11 "Music Royalty & Regulatory Fees" + HST = $46.45.

Called in to cancel today, but decided to accept a 1-year offer, (no 6-month plans were offered to me):

SiriusXM Select 1 Year = $87.56
Music Royalty & Regulatory Fee (14.2%) = $12.43
Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) = $12.94
Total = $112.93

It is of course more costly than I would have liked, but it will do for now I suppose.

Regular "1 year" price, as posted on SiriusXM website, is $241.18 (after adding fees & taxes), which is beyond ridiculous.

dufferdan I previously had 6 months all access + online for $54 +tax and fee. It was up on feb 28.

Yesterday, I called, and they would do the same, or alternatively, they would give me 1 year at 118.00 + taxes and fee, so my bill for 1 year was $140 + change all in. I have to phone back next Feb 24, 2020, cost me marginally more than double, but the small excess was worth putting off the call for a year. Includes all channels and online access, + Howard Stern, etc.

upnorthkiwi Got my bill $287 have phoned the past few years but tired so have cancelled
Phoned to see what the bottom line was for price Finished up with low price of $100 but told them I have to phone every year so screw you and cancelled. If enough did this perhaps the wild pot a reasonable price

Lee Anne I'm really glad we got the lifetime while we could, the only annoyance is that I have to call them each year to get the online for free :\ they tell me it's included but the computers are not set up to recognize it .. whatever lol

Gentleman The only deal I've seen is the "returning customer" one with SiriusXM south of the border.

$5 a month for 6 months.

I have a dormant account stateside but if the currency exchange wasn't so dear, I'd go with that one.

Right now, it's not attractive to get a subscription when my free trial ends.
