I'm thinking of getting an XM Lifetime subscription to go with my SIRIUS Lifetime sub. I'm considering this to lock-in another radio before the price increase. That is, if the lifetime sub is no more than $400.

Just a couple of questions, what IS the current price for an XM lifetime sub? ... and like SIRIUS, does XM offer split payments?

Oh, and this is really a TSS question but if anyone knows... Does a new lifetime subscription count for any rebates? I would be a new XM customer.

I believe you qualify for any XM rebate :)

XM never had a lifetime plan until the merge (except for a short time in 2001 or 2002). The lifetime I have comes with BoS. Was $500 :shock:

I don't have any problems with it & I hope I never do. I never again want to call the XM care center at the state mental hospital in Osawatomie, Ks :worried:

Since you are a new XM sub, you qualify for the rebates. I think their payment plans are the same as Sirius. I just converted my XM to lifetime yesterday (same reason). I paid in one shot since if they do 3 payments that is 3 times the chances of them screwing something up (my opinion). The price is $399 + activation. If you are a current sub, it is $399 less prorated amount on your current subscription. $499 if you want Best Of Sirius.

I recently bought a XM radio and lifetimed it with BOS. I also have a lifetimes Sirius radio. I wanted a new radio and it looks like Sirius won't be having any new radios for a while. By the way what are these rebates you guys are talking about? I paid $500 plus tax for lifetime plus BOS. If there is a rebate please let me know. By the way I activated my XM radio online with the one shot big payment. I used this code for free activation. It saved me $15. The code is XMSCION03 and it does work. Any rebate help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again guys.

I was talking about rebates for the radios... I've been considering the XMp3 (which is $149.99 after $80 mail-in rebate) or the XpressRC (which is $139.99 after instant rebate)

Suggestions on deciding between the two would be appreciated :)

I'm leaning towards the XMp3 because it comes with the home and car kit and it's only $10 more (unless there's something special about the XpressRC that I don't know about).

They are both nice radios from the looks of it. XMP3 is portable and can play MP3s and record. XPressRC has a neat colour display and is a plug and play.

I bought the XpressRC off a guy on ebay for $129 with the homekit included. They were both brand new and the guy had 99.9% feedback. I didin't mind getting it off of Ebay. I bought a Sporster replay off ebay and it's still going after 5 years. Anyway the XpressRC is a nice reciver. I love the split screen and the ability to record 10 songs. I haven't had the change to check out the XMP3. I do hear its a good reciever. I also have a Sirius SL2 and its nice with the wifi and recording capabilities. I think your better off getting the lifetime. No more fees every 3 monthes. :ter:
