    For those of you who still have Sirius...

    I've called them multiple times asking for a deal or threatening to cancel and they refuse to give me any sort-of discount. How can I get them to budge on the price?

    I sued them.

    You can just cancel. They'll call you back with 6 mo for $20

    By cancelling. Mine just turned off yesterday as a matter of fact. It kinda sucks channel surfing the FM dial after all these years, but big fucking deal. Once I figure out the stations around here I'll just punch them in. Fuckin' RETRO, baby!

    Never done it. Tried dawgshed at first, but it was too much work for me. I don't give a shit. If I spent more time driving I'd just keep Sirius. It's not important to me.

    I did this last week. I said I was going to cancel unless they reduce my price as I'm no longer using sirius/xm as much as I use to. They said something like "let me see what we have here" and proceeded to cut what I'm paying in half because of a "special promotion." I'm sure I could have played poker harder and gotten them to bring it down more, but I didn't feel like haggling, so took it. $10/month for all stations in my car plus online access (1 account). Next year it goes back up to the double price, but they said just call in and cancel again and get whatever the promo is at the time, or cancel, or threaten to cancel again, as the contract terms are only for 12 months. I'm sure they have various "promotions" depending on how convincing you sound. I wasn't cancelling either way. good luck

    when my renewal was up I just told them that I wasn't going to renew because its just too expensive for me with everything else I have to pay for in my world. They immediately offered me a year at 7 dollars a month. Kind of hard to say no at that point

    You cancel, and they transfer you and then ask why. Tell them it costs too much and then they make you an offer, first one is a year for 1/2 price. I usually take that because I hate talking to those scumbags. Other offers are 6 months.

    Yeah, the commercials and static are brutal. I used to drive all the time. All over New England, and satellite was great to have. Now I only take short trips around the immediate area and can't justify the expense. I used to have plenty of money too, so it didn't matter. Things are real tight now. I plan to DL a bunch of music off Amazon onto my tablet one of these days and pretty much just use it most of the time.
