Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I just got off the phone with Sirius this morning and renewed two radios, each with 6 months free. All you have to do is threaten to cancel and they will give you half off their price.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Sirius "customer service" is downright junk. I've been a customer for 6+ years now, and really enjoy the programming. But I am sorry: the people you have to talk to about a service renewal, billing issue, etc are just painful to talk to. Usually, english is their second (or third) language, and they usually sport an IQ the level of a waisted high school moron.

To answer your question: yes, I will renew - but not the "sirus traffic" portion. You will still get the traffic/weather channel with your subscription, and that is sometimes usefull.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Do these offers ($5/month for 5 months, $75/year) include everything? I heard there can be extra royalty fees plus taxes are also extra.

Those fees are extra. I just renewed two subscritions for a year at a cost of $85 each, this was six months free on each radio. Just over $14 per radio a month for the six months and includes everything.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Yes I will renew as I did on my 2009 Dodge Ram Laramie when its free year was up. I bought the Ram in May 2009 and purchased a lifetime subscription for $399 plus taxes (total was $492 with taxes and royalty fees) in May 2010. I have heard the cost for lifetime is now $699 but I plan on telling them either they give me the same price I paid in 2010 or I walk. I've bought three lifetime subscriptions from them from 2008 through 2010 and paid $399 plus taxes and fees each time so no way am I going to pay $699 plus fees and taxes.

And you are all right on the customer service...it's terrible!

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I only listened to a few of the music channels... and with the iphone update, I can listen to Pandora and other music apps almost as easily.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I will not renew. I don't like the sound quality and the traffic info is not accurate. I will use my ipod and local radio stations for news and traffic.

Pandora is currently great alternative; they will eventually kill satellite radio. Internet is any place available now over phones.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I let my subscription lapse as I knew I was trading my old vehicle in for my new GC and I really missed it. If you are just commuting local stations are fine but for longer trips where you have to keep searching for stations it really pays off.
I called and cancelled mine before the subscription ran out but didn't receive any special offers for lower rates however several of my friends have received them after letting their service run out.
