SiriusXM’s best ever special is back – 12 months of SiriusXM Platinum satellite radio for $60. Or get your first three months free, with no credit card required.
SiriusXM $60 Per Year
SiriusXM is currently offering a 12-month subscription for $5 a month, or $60 for the full year. This subscription gives you the SiriusXM Music and Entertainment Plan, plus a free upgrade to Platinum. Platinum provides more than 150 channels in your car satellite radio. Platinum adds Howard Stern and additional sports channels.
In addition, you’ll get to use the SiriusXM App on your smartphone.
The special price is $5 per month, $60 for a full year. This promotion is good only for your first year; at the end of your 12-month subscription you’ll be billed at the regular rate – $23.99 per month for Platinum – unless you act as noted below (see SiriusXM Deals for Current Subscribers).
You can find the $60 per year deal on this SiriusXM web page:
You can find a similar deal on the SiriusXM Home Page but that does not give you the free Platinum upgrade.
This SiriusXM satellite radio deal is officially good only for new and returning subscribers but some current users say they were able to cancel their current subscription and sign up for the $60 special. You can find a discussion of this at the Redditt SiriusXM Community.

A credit card is required on this offer. Service will automatically renew thereafter every month and you will be charged at then-current rates (currently, $18.99/month).

SiriusXM Deals for Current Subscribers
If you’re a current SiriusXM subscriber, when your current annual contract ends, you will be automatically renewed at the full, regular rate unless you call ahead of time. The regular rate for the Music & Entertainment plan, the most popular SiriusXM service, is $18.99 a month.
To get a discounted rate, find out when your subscription is expiring and set a note to yourself to call SiriusXM a few days before your service ends. Tell SiriusXM you cannot afford the full rate and so must cancel.
Usually you’ll get an offer to continue at a discount, half price or less. If you don’t get a good discount offer, tell SiriusXM to go ahead and cancel. Usually you will get a callback later from SiriusXM with a 50% off or better offer. To cancel SiriusXM call 1-866-635-5020 or visit:

SiriusXM Student Special
SiriusXM offers a $4 per month streaming platinum special for college students. This is the SiriusXM streaming app and does not include car radio service.
Start with $1 for 3 months then pay $4 a month. The regular non-student rate is $10.99 a month. To enroll, visit:
OFFER DETAILS: Eligible Students may activate a Student Streaming Platinum subscription and receive the first three (3) months for $1.00 plus tax. A credit card is required on this offer. Your subscription will automatically renew every month thereafter at the then-current Student Streaming Platinum rate (currently $4/month, plus fees and taxes). To qualify for the Student Streaming Platinum subscription plan, you must be at least 18 years of age and currently enrolled in a United States based, degree granting, accredited school of higher education (an “Eligible Student”). Student Streaming Platinum requires eligibility verification and annual re-verification in order to maintain the Student Streaming Platinum rate. Your eligibility will be verified upon initial enrollment and then every twelve (12) months thereafter to continue receiving the student rate.
SiriusXM Military Discount
SiriusXM offers a 25% discount to all active and veteran military members and their families. To enroll, visit:
SiriusXM does not offer a senior discount.
OFFER DETAILS: Activate an eligible package and plan and you will save 25% off the current full price rate for the life of the subscription. Fees and taxes apply. The subscription plan you choose will automatically renew thereafter, and you will be charged according to your chosen payment method at 25% off then-current rates.
Sharing a SiriusXM Account
Technically, you cannot share a single SiriusXM account. However, it is possible to use one account in two vehicles.
If you have one active SiriusXM radio account, you also have access to the SiriusXM app that lets you stream SiriusXM onto your phone or other smart device. This means you can use the satellite radio in one vehicle and the app in another. For example, with an iPhone you can use the SiriusXM app plus Apple carplay to stream SiriusXM through your car’s audio system.
Here’s where to get the SiriusXM app; you will need to sign in with the credentials used for your SiriusXM radio account.
SiriusXM New Vehicle Deal
If you buy a new vehicle, you will get a free 3-month subscription. If you have an unused service credit in your old car, you can transfer the SiriusXM credits to your new car.
