just bought my new truck. First vehicle with XM option.... is it worth the $?
I have been doing the 5 month for $25 cancellation threat thing for 6 1/2 years now. It's annoying to call every 5 months but worth the savings. Just make sure you cancel if you want to drop it, they will put you in collections if you just stop paying. They are as bad as a 1990's internet provider about subscription contracts.
oh, and never give them a credit card, have them invoice you and pay by check
I usually do the 12 months for $99 promo. Can't remember to call and cancel every 5 months and they have my CC info. Just auto renewed 2 weeks ago...got an alert from my CC company that $280 had been charged to XM. Called them to cancel it (they will cancel and prorate the refund by day), and they gave me the $99 promo rate and refunded the balance from the $280. Now I'll put it in my phone to call a week before it auto renews. Then get a new phone and somehow lose the calendar appointment and have to do it all over next year. Oh well. I get it just mainly because it's there. I like having another 2-4 stations per genre to flick through. But that's about it.
This ^^^.Canadians get shit mobile data plans, so I play the 5-month promo game. I have to call to cancel in December. I listen to maybe 4 channels on rotation. I just don't drive enough, nor do I have enough music interest, to make it worth more.
Exactly! Ive been off work for Six weeks and my cable sucks for what it cost, most channels are crap!This ^^^.
My 2017 Tundra came with a 90 day complimentary XM subscription. I let it expire and MY OH MY did they go nutz on e-mails and hard copy snail mail crap trying to get me to sign up. After 3 months I opened up a particularly curious looking mailing from them. In it was a nicely laid out, heavily graphiced, listing of all their approx 147 channels. So I circled the ones I would definitely listen to and the ones I might listen to. So I had 7 I would definitely listen to and about 5 I might. That's 12 out of their promotion-push 147. Dear Gawd. Really? How about give me the 12 for a vastly reduced priced XM?????
