Anyways. For the 2nd time now, I have been able to update my Sirius radio for $25 for 6 months. I'm writing this post to share my good fortune with the masses because saving money makes me happy. When I can help other people save money, that also makes me happy. See what I did there?
Apparently, it depends on your specific radio for which promos are available to you, so keep that in mind.
I called 1-888-601-6302 and said that I wanted to cancel my subscription because I didn't want it to automatically renew at the current rates.
The customer service rep (CSR) offered me 1 year for $77, which I considered.. until I did the math.
$25 for 6 months = $50 a year + tax = $65ish = calling 2x a year
$77 for 1 year = $77 a year + tax = $100+ish = calling 1x a year
I told her that I'd prefer to cancel unless I could keep my current promo for $25 for 6 months. She then explained (or stated to maybe deter me?) that it was dependent on my equipment on what promos were available. I just held strong.
The CSR came back on the line and said the promo was still available, and she applied it to my account. She made me agree to all the stuff I had to agree to the last time, name, car, first born child, right arm, etc.. and after 10 minutes on the phone I had saved myself some dollas!
