    FREE SiriusXM through MAY 30th

    FREE SiriusXM (Satellite) radio through MAY 30!!!

    Turn Your Radio On

    Hubby and I were out today and all of a sudden through his car radio comes Sirius!

    Wicked cool!

    So I googled it and it's free for a few weeks!

    We have no plans to keep it but we will listen through the trial period!

    I have had XM for almost 10 years now. I WOULD NOT give it up for anything. They began a Beatles channel yesterday. First song played was All You Need Is Love. There is so much variety that you can listen to anything you like. I painted my living room one weekend while listening to Big Band & Swing.

    I agree with you Razorbacker. I listen to the XM stations in my car much more often than I do local radio, and I like it more than options like Pandora and Spotify. Like you said, it's the variety and the station for any mood / need that I like. I made sure not to put my subscription on automatic renewal (which takes a bit of a fight) so when it comes up for renewal, I call to haggle about the cost. It's a pain, but I usually try to put it off for a day that people are annoying me so I can take it out on negotiating my price instead of on family or co-workers. Doing that, what I pay for it is nominal, and totally worth it!

    I am "thinking" hubby may like it enough to get it after the trial.


    razor, up the Beatles was FIRST on the list that we listened to!!!


    Hubby bought a new car Christmas 2015 and I bought a new car August 16 and they both came with a free Sirius for 3 months and we never bothered with it.

    i had it with my new car for 6 months! then I paid for the 5 months for $25 or something like that. I keep getting emails to renew for that price or 2 months free trial. since I'm not a "new" customer I know the free trial doesn't apply to me so I decided to call them out on sending me these emails. I said, why send me an offer that is no good to me. It doesn't say new customers only, it says on an inactive radio and the one in my challenger. They gave me the 2 month trial! Yay me! had I known it was free for 2 weeks in May, I would have waited!

    If you want it, you can get a receiver that will go in your car and hook into your sound system. As a new subscriber, you can probably negotiate a free or really cheap receiver. That's what I had until I got a car that had it built in. In some ways, I liked that better - it had more pre-programmed buttons.

    I think they almost always do a free thing around this time of year. I have SiriusXM but one of the lower packages which does not get the Margaritaville channel and it seems to pop in just for this weekend.

    Also, here's a tip if you are a subscriber - call to cancel. They will offer you a lower price. Continue to say you want to cancel. You should be able to get them down to around $25 for 6 months.

    Yep! My rule of thumb is no more than $5 a month. Sometimes that's a 3 month term, sometimes 6, and on a rare occasion a year. But they've always got something that can get it for you around $5 per month
