The Official XM RENEWAL Thread!!

My 90 day XM service will be expiring in a few weeks. Does XM contact you directly for renewal?

Re: XM Renewal?

All they sent me was offers in the mail to re-up at the full price. Mine actually expired at the end of July. I have not heard anything additional from them yet. I know people have been able to call and get the $77 annual rate with some success. I never tried. If I don't get some sort of special offer in the next month or so I may call and try to renew at the lower rate.

Re: XM Renewal?

I've never had XM. What is the "full price". Are there different packages? Do people think that the renewal price will go down the longer you put them off?

I don't recall, but it is $120-$130 annually if I recall correctly, as opposed to the $77 "special". I think there is only one level of service, but once again I am not certain.

I think you're right. My husband bought this for me for my birthday. No discounts here.

Re: XM Renewal?

I am enjoying the XM because I can get 40's and 50's music that I can't get anywhere else (except my CD's of course). Being new with XM, is it normal for the signal to fade when under bridges? The last time I experienced that was with AM radio.

Re: XM Renewal?

A few notes on XM. The regular cost is $12.95 a month and there are very small discounts for signing up for a full year, two years, and three years. You will not likely get a post card with the $77 offer and will have to call in and ask for. The $77 deal is the best deal I have found over the past few years (used to be $60). Wait for the 90 day trial to end because once the $77 year long rate is paid the service date starts at that moment.

As for service, in major metro areas there are ground repeaters that limit the amount of outages by sending a FM-ish signal, but for the most part, your vehicle needs to have a clear view of the sky (southern view I believe) to receive the satellite signal. In more remote areas, there are no repeaters.

Hope that helps.

I haven't had trouble on bridges but I lose the signal completely in tunnels and parking garages. That seems consistent with dfc101a's post.

Re: XM Renewal?

As I logged in this morning to www.xmradio.com to listen online. I noticed some promo of $6.99/mo in addition you can buy a Delphi XM portable radio for $9.99, when I tried accessing it, it asked for phone number to validate i m an exisiting customer, I bailed out at that time, since I still want to enjoy my 2 more months of freebie.

I m new to XM, this could also mean you pay 6.99/mo for that second receiver in addition to your regular $12.95/mo.

here is the link http://friends.xmradio.com/accesskey...kid=5196204EFD
