    Knowing my yearly subscription was coming up shortly I thought I'd call up to cancel and see if they let me go, would mail me offers, etc.

    I mentioned the fact that I originally subscribed because of Howard, and the reason I was canceling was because of the lack of content and live shows - I wasn't receiving enough value for what I paid. I specifically mentioned Howard and how few shows he does nowadays.

    I was immediately offered 50% off for a year. Done.

    Even though I hardly listen to Howard anymore I still enjoy the music stations so this is a fair deal in my opinion.

    Anyone else have a similar experience?

    They did not give us any offers last time, but I do miss it in the truck. It might be time to call again.

    Next time you might want to try declining the 50% off because you'll probably get a better deal. In my experience, they start with 50% off (for a year or 6 months), then they offer you the 6 months for $25 deal. I've been on that plan for at least 5 years, can't remember the last time I paid full price and would cancel if I couldn't get it for around $5 a month. If they don't offer it to you on the phone, just hang up and you'll get the 6 for $25 in the mail within a day.

    How do they stay in business if so many people are paying practically nothing nowdays? Just wondering.

    I cancelled, they offered a year free. It stopped working after a month. I called back and asked what happened. They said they will fix it. Charged me for a year. I called and asked why am I being charged for a free sub. Got a refund and it stopped working again after 30 days. I gave up.

    I guess you must download them to your SIM card on your phone, right? ;)

    I spend a fair amount of time driving, and if I'm not on the phone I'm usually listening to Sirius. Preset #1 is Howard 100, but the last few times I've pressed it I've gotten Tan Mom, Lisa's D cup rerun and a Stern replay from 1992.

    Thanks...I've been paying full rate since 2006, so even 50% is a better deal.

    and to TaTa Toothy's point, the reason they're surviving is because of people like me who just paid what they asked for years and years.
