I know, you may be scoffing at the idea of Satellite Radio as dated 90’s technology, especially in today’s world of smartphones and streaming radio. For many people who don’t have that option, or reliable internet connections, which leads to drop outs, satellite radio is still a great source for them.
The lowest tier is priced at $14.99/month, or $90 every 6 months. Do not pay this absurd amount.
Here’s how to negotiate a better rate, JeeMoney-style. Call them up and ask to cancel. They will offer you better terms…a full year for $100, and then a full year for either $88 or $77. It sounds much better than before, but hold to your guns. Tell them that you heard a friend had gotten 6 months for $25, and that would be the only rate that will entice you to keep your subscription. If they don’t give it to you, then ask to proceed with cancellation. The other rate they may offer is 5 months for $20.
You will get this rate. I have gotten this rate for over 5 years now. If you are interested in adding the internet streaming option, you can also add on internet streaming for $4/month more which is a total rate of $49/6 months. Internet streaming allows you to have Sirius anywhere you go, instead of paying per car.
The other option that they might offer you is the Sirius All-Access for $49/6 months. This includes a few other channels and internet streaming. I recently was offered this option and took it.
You will have to renegotiate this every 5-6 months, which takes about 15 minutes of your time everytime you call in.
There you go…if you use satellite radio, this is how you negotiate a cheap rate.
