I got a 3 month trial of XM radio that is about to expire. I called XM today after reading at other sites that you can get a yearly subscription for $77 per year if you ask for it. I tried that today and they responded that they never heard of that and could not do that.Has anyone gotten this discount and how did they do it? Thanks all...

Try, try again!

Call back and talk to another person...they are giving you a line of BS if they say they have never heard of this. It takes a bit of perseverance but you can easily get the $77 rate.:rolleyes:

Yep. Just keep trying. And don't be afraid to tell that you are fine with the trial running out.

I've got two XM radios (before getting my CR-V two months ago), and I have that deal on both of those radios. I'll do the same when my trial runs out here in a couple of weeks.

try again

I just got the $77 deal on my new CRV, so call back.

They didn't challenge me at all on it. I just asked for it, told them the yearly $150 was not worth it to me and they immediately put in the $77 rate.

discount codes for $77/year rate

I tried to get the $77/year rate, calling twice and talking to two different people. They said I had to wait until my XM trial ran out in October and see if I get mailed any special offers. Does anyone have any current discounts or codes that have been used recently?

It is easier to get the $77 rate after it has expired! We actually transferred our XM service from our Acura to our CRV and they tacked it right on the end of the trial period, so we still got the 3 months free.

When I renewed the XM service (for the second time) on the Acura, three months before we traded it, I still got the $77.00 rate. The initial $77.00 a year special had expired and they charged my credit card some absurd monthly amount so I called to cancel. The offered me the $150 a year rate, and I told them it wasn't worth $150 a year! I said I wasn't willing to pay any more than $77.00 a year, so if I got that rate I'd renew, if not I'd cancel. They gave me the $77 a year rate!

You have to act like you can live without their service and you're not willing to pay more than the $77 rate, they'll do it rather than lose a subscription! It didn't take the approval of a Manager either, so whoever you talk to is authorized to offer that rate! Good luck!

XM radio

My free 3 month XM trial runs out in a week or so. I had called about a month ago and was quoted a rate that I thought was too high. I shall wait and let it run out and see if they offer me a deal. Cheers, Bill P.

My trial XM expired the last week in September. I did nothing and continued to get service. Today I got an invoice saying I could extend my XM programming through the end of December ( 3 months) for $14.97, thus making the fee $5 a month rather than the normal $12.95 ( I think that is correct ) a month. I called the number on the invoice 1-866-553-5425 and spoke with a man named Mike. I told him I would like to find out about an annual service contract.

Mike offered me an annual service fee of $142.45. I told him that I had seen on the Honda CR-V Owners Club Forum that some of our members had gotten an annual service agreement for $77.00. Mike said he had not heard of that, but would check it out. He put me on hold for a few minutes. When he returned to the line he said that I could get the $77.00 fee and that he could make it begin after my promotional $14.97 fee expires the end of December.

Thus, I now have the same XM service that came with the car for the next 15 months for $91.97. Needless to say, I am pleased with this agreement.

If you will call and politely ask for the $77.00 plan it is available. Just say you saw it on the Honda CR-V Owners Club Forum.
Happy listening and Happy Honda-ing! Bill P.

Try calling during the day, Monday thru Friday; it seems more knowledgable people are there. Be persistant. Ask to speak to a supervisor. Tell them you are ready to pay now via credit card for the $77. rate.

I called XM on Friday Dec 12 and was able to get the $77 intro rate for my first year. When you add in the 3 months free, that is 15 months for $77 or just over $5 per month. When the first year is up, I will try again, though I think I will be paying the full deal. Thanks for the tip!!!!

I just called and they said there is a promotion on this model car for $77 a year. I will continue to get every station I have been including all the comedy, news, traffic, weather, etc. So I signed up!

XM radio price increase

Heard that XM radio is raising their subscription prices. Has anyone recently renewed at the $7 per month rate?

I called XM last week to transfer my 3 year paid plan over to my CR-V and cancel my other month-to-month second radio subscription.

After being jacked around, cut off and dealing with people who can't speak English for the better part of an hour, I ended up canceling everything and getting a refund on my unused 3-year plan. I wasn't thrilled with the content anyway and the poor customer service on what should have been a simple changeover just sent me over the edge. I was sick of listening to commercials on a service that I was specifically paying good money for to AVOID commercials.

Before it was all over and credits had been issued to my charge card, the representative offered me the 77 dollar annual plan.... This was last Tuesday so it's still available. I had been an XM subscriber continuously since 2002.

They had better get their poop in a group soon or they'll go the way of the Do-Do bird (or General Motors). If I wanted to listen to goofball DJ's with fake, forced laughter on a country music station in the mornings interspersed with Viagra and get rich quick advertisements I could just listen to the local FM country station. Why pay even 6.50/month for the privilege?
