If you let your service lapse, and let a few renewal letters go by unanswered, you can get a 5 month for $25 deal. The first time around I had to politely decline a phone call offer, and eventually the rep got around to offering me the 5 month deal.
This about sums it up for me. For $6.50 per month it's ok. But at $12.95 it's not. These cars allow an interface to MP3 and iPhone. Mine even has an 18GB hard drive. So access to programming is not a problem on long trips which I do every day.I could really live without it but liked a few channels (truth)
Not only that, but they will make it horribly impossible to cancel your subscription should you choose to not carry them anymore. Had a 1 year subscription WAY back in 2007 that literally took a month of phone calls to have cancelled.Just be sure to cx or re-negotiate at that point or you may auto-renew at the full price....$140/yr.
I asked to get the 6 month and no commitment after....they wouldnt do. They plan on people not remembering, I suppose...
In June, about two weeks after my free trial expired, I got them to give me 5 months for $19.99 (plus about $6 in taxes). I figured that was better than the year for $77. I'll probably go to that after my 5-months is up. I was worried they would auto-bill me for more afterwards so I asked for them to mail me a bill. They said there was a fee for that. So I put it on my Amex, but made it clear that I do NOT want auto-renew. I guess we'll see what happens in a couple months. If they charge me some crazy rate, I will certainly dispute it.
Hey, another local! I'm just up the road in Clear Lake. Do you have a white JSW? I saw one the other day at Bay Area and I-45, but couldn't catch up in traffic.I guess I should have waited a little longer. I let mine expire and was offered $92 after a little talking and and they also let me do my wife XM car for the same.
Got a letter in the mail and a call today about asking to renew it. I declined, waiting for a call back to see how far I can get it down, if not looks like Pandora for me for a while.
