    I was just looking at my account online and it looks like my lifetime sub officially paid for itself on 12/22/08 so now I'm listening for free!

    Congrats!

    The good thing for you now is that no matter how crappy the service gets that at least it isn't costing you anything! LOL

    I know, I know, I need to try to keep my optimism!

    I'm a few months behind you. It was a smart move to pick up the Lifetime, I don't know however if it's as smart now to buy one as it was back when we got it.

    Actually, that's what I was thinking as well... :)

    Yeah, I agree. I keep getting tempted with a Tivo lifetime sub but I haven't jumped on it for exactly that reason. It would have been great 3-4 years ago when I first signed up, but these days who knows what companies will be around in a year or two.

    I got a year and a half to go for mine. But from all of the functionality that I have been able to tap from my subscription, it has already paid off in my eyes. Besides, it's only $234 left to pay off. No big deal for all the great service I'm receiving. :cool:

    As for getting the Best of XM add-on, it was $100 to add it to my lifetime but I had no interest in the programming it offered, but I figure it only added 5 months until it pays off, and that's what? $20? I also did it to receive new Best of XM content.

    But it turns out that I do like 1 channel it offers, and that's XM Public Radio. I was just listening to Bob Edwards and he had an interview with Jerry Stiller and his wife and it was great. So at least I'm getting something out of the add-on. :)

    When Best of XM was first offered for $150 I figured what the hell, pull the trigger. I bought it thinking maybe baseball will be offered next year but the good news was that SIRIUS never charged me for it after I gave them my credit card information :bigthumbup:

    Sweet and it does appear that maybe you will end up getting baseball!

    That's what I've been hearing from the inside. Then you got the MLB Home Plate channel on SIRIUS now.

    Congrats, but how many radios have you gotten threw on that lifetime sub?

    no kidding. i'm on my second radio for the lifetime sub (and I got lucky that they waived the swap fee). I've gone through probably 3-4 radios due to hardware failure on my other subs though. Not exactly high-quality equipment.

    I'm probably on radio number seven with no "official" swaps thanks to the extended warantee from Best Buy.

    Congratulations, PM...:D

    I bought a Sportster Replay from DAB back in Aug 2005 and bought a lifetime subscription when I activated it. I think it's almost payed for...:)

    Well you old Sirius Dawg you still got my old Sporster Replay? You got your monies worth out of that thing didn't you?

    Thanks :)

    You know, that generation of radios seemed pretty bulletproof (other than the screen washout problems). You could cook eggs on them, but they were built solid!

    That cool, but I would love to get the lifetime subscription, but I buy a new radio just about every year because I like some of the new features they have in it. So I know, I would go threw the limit of three of radios allowed on the lifetime sub thing.

    So if I'm guessing right you buy a new radio on the extended warranty deal you have and that doesn't goes to the three limit swap deal on the lifetime sub?

    I haven't used a single swap on my lifetime sub and as I said I only have 18 months to go. Not too bad. :)

    Once the new SIRIUS portable comes out, I will definitely get one with a Best Buy warranty. But that probably won't happen for another 6-9 months, so I'll continue to enjoy my Starmate 4 in the meantime.
