SiriusXM Satellite Radio is a must if you’re often in the car but you don’t need to pay the full rate. Most customers can get it for about half price. Here’s how:
Discounts for Current SiriusXM Subscribers
If you’re a current SiriusXM subscriber, when your current annual contract ends, you will be automatically renewed at the full rate unless you call ahead of time.
To get a discounted rate, find out when your subscription is expiring and set a note to yourself to call Sirius a few days before your service ends. Call then and say you cannot afford the full rate and tell SiriusXM you need to cancel. Usually you’ll get an offer to continue at around $60 a year (about 70% off) plus fees and taxes, for a total of about $70 a month. If you don’t get a discount offer, tell them 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 1-866-635-2349.
Discounts for New SiriusXM Customers
If you’re new to SiriusXM, there are three plans on special you can choose from:
- Select – SiriusXM on your car satellite radio plus on your phone or PC. $5 per month for 12 months, then $16.99 per month. Or get a three-month free trial. This is the plan most customers choose.
- All Access – SiriusXM Select plus premium channels like Howard Stern. $8.25 a month for 12 months, a discount of 62% off the normal rate of $21.99 a month. After 12 months you’ll pay $21.99 a month.
- Essential – SiriusXM on your phone or PC (but not on your car radio). $1 for 4 months then $13 per month.

Be aware that after 12 months, you’ll be automatically renewed at the full rate and your credit card will be charged accordingly. So, when you do sign up, put a reminder on your calendar to call a few days ahead of that time 12 months out. Call then and say you cannot afford the full rate and tell SiriusXM to cancel. Usually you’ll get an offer to continue at around $70 a year, which is less than half price. If you don’t get an offer, tell them you have to cancel. Usually you will get a callback from SiriusXM with a promotional offer soon, or within a few days after your cancellation.
