SIRIUS XM has changed it up a bit this past Sunday regarding rebates. They are no longer going with a standard rebate model based on specific radios. They are instead moving to something that allows new subscribers to either get money back by committing to a length of service and paying upfront or by having lower payments for the first 6 months.

Both of these deals are things a new subscriber has to call and ask for upon activating a radio. I'm going to spell it out as best I can in the easiest way possible.

Option 1. Get up to $100 Back in a VISA Prepaid Card

You have to commit to a length of service and the amount of the Prepaid Card depends on the length and service.

-Get $25 Back when you commit to 1 year of "Everything" service or "Everything with the Best of Service"

-Get $75 Back when you commit to 2 years of "Everything service.

-Get $100 Back when you commit to 2 years of "Everything with the Best of Service"

Option 2. Easy In Getting Started Plan

-Activate and commit to 1-2 years of service and get the "Everything" package for as low as $4.99 per month for the first 6 months. Then it goes to the regular price for the remaining term.

Both of these options you have to be a new subscriber and ask for when activating.

They usually have a lot of deals and offers for current subscribers.

Honestly? :shifty:

All I know is that the annual payment comes out and I buy a new receiver when I need a new one. I don't usually keep current on the offers.

What's going on now, if anything?

I don't know offhand. But they seem to email subscribers all the time of these deals. I'd rather have this thread to be about this deal though.

I got a deal to activate an old Airware for $20 for 5 months and no activation fee. I don't think I will be taking it as I don't use this radio (obviously -- that's why I cancelled it).

Thanks Taylor for the info, guess we wouldn't get that memo as subscribers. We should though, I still have a few people I don't associate with that I haven't sold satellite on, ;)

Call and threaten to cancel.

If you don't like the offer, hang up and try again with someone else.

the best deal i have been offered since i let my service run out a month ago is "2 months free".. i dont like that too much, since this is the first time i would have to pay royalty fees also.. and additional online listening fees... bunch of crap.

now if they offered like "3 months free" i'd prob resubscribe..

Yeah...I got that letter in the mail about an old radio. I think I gave the radio to my brother, but he never activated it. If you take them up on the deal, you obviously have to watch the expiration date because it then rolls into a quarterly renewal once the 5 month promo ends.

:hah:

I might get to that point the next time my sub is up.


It's perfectly legal.

I think it was XM that offered "Six months for 6.95 a month" or so. Even if they "offer to keep you at a reduced rate", that's still better than nothing in my book.

Yeah, I just got XM for around $77/year, I think.....

It seems like I'm not terribly interested in Stern anymore so I may dump my Siri account and try to re-up with XM for that rate again.

I have the "Five months for 20 dollars" deal on both my Sirius and XM accounts right now. I just moved and don't have a repeater that works for my Sirius radio, but do have one that works for XM.
