SiriusXM.... what are your experiences with it and negotiating subscription price?

So our 2018 Expedition MAX came with SXM radio.  We liked it during our travel to AZ last year so I read a handful of the "tips and tricks" to negotiating a renewal price.  I was able to get a 1 year subscription for $70 including the "artists royalties" baloney.  Tried the recommended tell them you don't want to pay for that approach and they wouldn't budge.  

Quite frankly, I don't like going through this routine of negotiating and I can afford full price... but I'm cheap and it grinds me to know others are able to get the same product at discounted pricing.  So, with my subscription ending soon and not wanting to pay the $15.99/mo rate, here I go.  

I'm thinking my tactic is to tell them I'll renew for another year if they will give me the same price as the current subscription. Also, I don't want to deal with this bullshit more than annually... I'd pay for a 3 year contract if they offered that just to forget about it.

I don’t have it...Pandora’s enough for me.  But a few years ago I did, and back then I learned they’ll haggle.  When I wouldn’t renew the first time around they brought the rate down pretty significantly.

Maybe that’s not the case anymore, just an FYI...

Some of you might get a kick out of this. I was surfing through the different threads on here and thought I had pressed on the community button. Anyways my wife popped in about the exact same time the

I'd love to get rid of it, but it's a non-negotiable for my wife.  We also have Spotify Family for the kids and me, but my wife just loves SXM.  I will admit that having it on my phone and on the Google Home devices is not a bad thing.

I have had that same itch.... I think it would be a '64 Rambler for some reason.... I need to make lots of room in the garage before getting started on the hunt.

I had a gold ‘64 Rambler American in college(‘74-77). Used the huge trunk to sell used textbooks as there was no used book store around.

Great Tank!

Same here. I can't remember the last time I turned the radio to an am/fm station. We travel (drive) a lot so the convenience of having the same favorite radio stations for a long trip is worth the money. FYI I pay quarterly and even though those payments annualized = yearly charge it's a little less painful.

I never turn the radio on.

Slept through Tropical Storm Beta winds and rain last night. Nothing major, more like a strong rain storm for us (Victoria) with about 2 inches of rain. When we woke up, the center was right over us but wind and drizzle was very light. My dog and I just took a wet walk around part of the course. It is soggy with a few small limbs down but mostly looks good. A day or maybe two of draining and drying and we'll be ready to tee off again! It's going to make everything lush and green with lots of mosquitoes. Can't have everything perfect.

As usual, north and northwest of the center got hammered. Pray for Houston/Galveston area.

The community where we bought our winter place in Florida has 27 holes. I've always had an aversion to water on the course, maybe I'll overcome it by the time winter is over. IMG_5816.thumb.JPG.eacd41c2a7e55d92cc5237c21b0af1ad.JPG
