For existing XM customers that want discounted prices without loss of service, try this. It wont get you the extras--Amazon Echo Dot or free upgrade to All Access, but it should get you discounted prices on the Select or All Access plans.
I have been a customer for a few years, and of course my initial discount had ran out but my wife loves the radio so we kept it at full price.
I HATE paying full price.
I finally figured someone on Slickdeals may have figured out a way to keep getting discounted prices without loss of service. They did. Please be kind and give kwadguy
his well deserved rep for his service in saving us all 75ish% off the regular price by going to this link
Per the directions, sign into your account at http://www.siriusxm.com/
and on the tab Subscriptions, you will see a green lined drop box, select "I want to cancel".
It will offer 2 options: 1. See new offers or cancel. 2. Change your subscription.
Pick #1. Then you can pick a reason why you want to cancel. The first time I picked something, the options it gave me was to downgrade my service to one of two full priced peon subscriptions.
Full priced lesser plan? Nah...I went back to previous page and logged out. Logged in, cancel option, different reason, and got the same options. So I tried again.
Third and fourth reasons got me a slightly better offer, but nothing as good as the $5/month for SiriusXM Select. Then I tried the fifth time...JACKPOT! (It may take more than 5 tries, YMMV)
12 months of Select for $5/month plus fees/taxes.
12 months of All Access for $8.25/month plus fees/taxes. (Thanks to a Rep comment for providing the All Access price!)
I stayed with Select for 12 months (if you love Nascar/NFL play-by-play or more Howard Stern, All Access might be for you). Then it gave me 3 options for that plan (plus fees/taxes on all 3).
12 months for $60 up front.
12 months at $4.99/month.
6 months for $29.94 up front.
Being a longtime slickdeal lurker I recognized that by picking a monthly payment, I am saving 12 WHOLE CENTS by picking $4.99/month...so I did.
My monthly payment had just been taken out after midnight a few hours ago, so it credited my account for service unused, and then applied $6 towards my new monthly payment. I now have $14+ credit that will pay for the next 2 months with a little left over.
And thats my 12 cents on how to take advantage of this great price they are offering new subscribers (minus the Dot and the free upgrade).
If you feel cheated out of an Echo Dot, with your new 12-month savings you can afford to buy your own Amazon Echo Dot 3rd generation ($19 Black Friday price) and still have Scrooge McDuck money left over!
Happy Black Friday!!!
