What exactly do the Taxes amount to? This would be for a pre Paid 6 months then revert to $12 something automatic renewal unless i cancelled.

Is this a good deal?
NOTICE! The following is my personal experience and opinion and may not be the same for you.

From my experience, if you don't want to continue to pay for radio, then don't even try the free service. I did that and got hooked on it. Playing CDs in the car got old and I despise listening to commercials every few minutes so I seldom would turn on the radio when I was driving.
Now with XM I seldom turn it off. There are so many channels that you can get what you like to hear. In my Sky the controls are on the steering wheel to change channels, volume and mute. I LOVE it! And the music sounds great with the Monsoon.
As far as censorship, I don't like to listen to anything that needs to be censored so that's not a problem for me.

You are spot on. It sounds Greg with the monsoon, so much better than the local stations. AND I can keep the stubby on. Don't have to worry about picking up local stations out of town with XM.

Didn't like the "Automatic Renewal" clause in the Sirius 6 month "special" offer.

You are able to omit that when speaking to the rep...it is not mandatory...and if u do not trust them, they will send u a bill and pay by check.

Do you mean instead of it automatically renewing, they'll just send you a bill which makes you manually renew it after 6 months?

YES...you even have the option of paying with a credit card and they will put in the computer not to renew automatically (if u believe that)..either way, all they want is your 27.44 for 6 months...

IMHO, just be careful giving those scoundrels your CC number...
they can easy fart and change their policies..(they have in the past)..

Lucky me... I bought my Sky in June 2012 & love the satellite radio. The best part? It's free! They never turned it off after the original owner's free trial!

Just wait until you want to shut down the automatic renewal clause. It took me an entire morning on the telephone to opt out of the auto renew after the initial low price service. I park the car every year for almost 5 months over winter and did not want to go through that whole process ever again. Loved the programing, but never again for me.

I've never tried to get off auto pay, but I've added and deleted radios with no problem.

Update - Called XM last Saturday. I asked for the $25/6 month rate and got it right off the bat. No hassle.

An added bonus was they didn't object to billing me. I did not have to give them a CC number and risk an automatic renewal at full rate.

At the end of the six months I'll see what deal I can get.
