If you are looking to get satellite radio or are on a free 3-month promotion, we have a great deal for you. XM Radio has a great non-published deal that can save you a TON of money. You can get a 1-year XM Radio subscription for $77! All you need to do is call XM at 1-800-347-0600 and ask for the $77 per year deal. (Tell them a friend of yours got that deal if you need to.)
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- They normally charge $12.95 per month so this is a huge savings.
- They are now charging an artist royalty fee of $11 or so. You can ask to waive this fee but I'm not sure they will. (They did not waive it for me.) Your final charge should be just under $90 for the year.
- Remember to call up in a year and renew or they will go back to charging your credit card $12.95 per month.
- This does NOT include the Best of Sirius (Howard Stern, NFL, etc.). However, it does include all of XM and most of the other Sirius stations (like E Street Radio, Wahoo!).
- This does NOT include XM traffic. There is an additional charge for this.
- I do not know if this works for Sirius radios. I have 2 XM radios so I'm not sure. However, it won't hurt to try.
- If you get a rep who won't give you the deal, just hang up and call again. I had to do it twice before I was given the offer.
- If you are calling to renew and want the offer again, you might have more of a problem. They claim this is only an introductory offer. However, I told them I was going to cancel and they transferred me to someone who gladly gave me the deal again. They really need to keep their subscribers so they aren't going to let you go. Keep speaking to someone until they give you the $77 deal!
As a personal opinion, XM radio is amazing! I listen to it all the time and now have very little use for terrestrial radio. If you have a new car with a free 3-month XM radio trial, this is a great way to continue receiving the service for a discount.
