    I don't use it because I refuse to pay to listen to the radio, but I got an email stating I get two free months of it. I'm using that. Just thought I would share that they are doing an offer like this in case anyone is cheap like me and didn't get the notice :)

    also used the 2 month free deal. now I have the basic plan for $5 per month for 6 months. when that's up I'll call to cancel again and see what they offer. $5 per month is pretty much my max I'm willing to pay but it is nice to have in the truck and sounds so much better than standard radio.

    Yeah if you let it lapse they will offer you some great deals to reconnect, they offered us two vehicles for 6 months for 30 bucks.
    I'm using the free 1st year now on my new power wagon.

    I might actually do it for that price. We'll see what they offer

    Ya gotta keep after them. When I bought my Patriot in '14, I got the first year free. When the subscription renewal came a year later, it was $80 for the year, I figured eh, what the heck, so I renewed. The following year it went up to $110, so I called to cancel it, they gave it to me for $50. This year when the notice came, it jumped up to $268. I promptly called and cancelled it. They offered to lower it again, but I turned them down. I only listened to 2 stations anyways, the Bluegrass station and Willy's Roadhouse.

    I got the flyer in February for 2 months free. Don’t drive the truck that much during winter so I just hung on to it. (Didn’t see any expiration date. ) Activated it as soon as our Summer Camping Season started. Worked out perfect for me. Hope to get another one for next summer. I too refuse to pay for radio.

    Always call. No matter what, always call. I’ve been down to $4 a month but it had to be approved by the supervisor of the person I talked to. $48 plus fees for a year is totally worth it imo. If they try and do a 6 month deal for $5, which is a common thing, tell them you’ll pay for 12 months for a dollar less a month. Always works.

    XM was getting way to “serious” with their pricing for the truck, car and Goldwing. I cancelled service on the truck and bike. Got the streaming service instead. Since both the truck and bike have BT, I’ve got XM in all three vehicles for way less. Works fine for me.

    I enjoy my Sirius radio, but I don't pay more than $5 per month. I had a year on my old Chevy, and I traded it in 4 months prior to the end. I called and let them know I traded the Cruze in. I got several calls when the 12 months up asking if I wanted to renew. I told them I traded the car in on my truck.
    Then I get a letter saying they were doing the automatic renewal, for $15 per month. Needless to say, I "lost" my credit card that they had on file. I always pay by check with them, not sure why I gave them my CC to pay last time.
