This reminded me that I hadn't reactivated my radio since it expired over a year ago. My wife has really been wanting it for the holiday music channels. So I called up to reactivate and get the 6 months for $25 deal. The guy told me all he saw was 5 months for $25, and there was a $15 activation fee. I've been through this rodeo a few times in past years. Sometimes getting the straight up deal, sometimes being told I have to pay the royalty fee, sometimes being told I can't do two promos back-to-back. And always a pain having to remember to renew my 5 or 6 month "trial" period. So I said let's cut to the chase, I use to pay $77 straight up a year. What can you do now. He said no activation fee (gee, what a surprise he was so quick to waive it with the higher plan), and $86 a year after taxes and royalty.
Done. Don't have to think about it till next year now. Not the slickest of XM deals by me, but I've done my share in the past and this was a real no-stress way at a decent price. Looking forward to having my holiday music again! Thanks for the reminder, OP.
Like the the deals here? Then Rep unto others as they Rep unto you - everybody appreciates it!
Thanks for the heads up. My membership expires next week so this will be a nice freebie as I transition back to regular radio.
Our 3 month trial with the new Acura RDX actually ends on the 14th ! The folks on Acurazine have been talking about various deals they've gotten by talking to customer service and saying they wanted to cancel, etc. We gave up a free lifetime sub when we traded our Volvo XC60 on the RDX.
