Learned from a car owner with XM, that if you refuse when they first contact you after your trial period, they will usually offer a discount (50%?).
Don't fool around with them. Don't bluff them either. Ask them straight out for the $77 rate your friends received or you will cancel. If they don't do it, then CANCEL IMMEDIATELY. You have up to two months to re-subscribe without paying a start up fee. But believe me, your phone will be ringing in a few weeks with them begging you to accept a lesser rate to get you back as a customer.For those of you who got one year at $77, what is the trick? I called them a couple of days ago telling them I'm thinking of dropping their service hoping they would give me a better rate. The only yearly rate they quoted me is $142.45 for my primary radio and $83.88 for my secondary radio. Is this the best rate one can expect or what should I do to try harder?
