Just got the 6 months for $25 for the "select" plan by calling 866-635-2349.    

I'm at about three years now of ongoing promos.

I may have to take them up on this one, my last six month for $25 ended June 1. Canceling was easy, I called them up and told them to cancel the service and was persistent as they offered me increasingly better deals (but the best deal they offered me was about $40 for two quarters, too rich for my blood).

I like the service but feel it is overpriced for what you get. Those who find it to be like an unending stream of commercial free music don't spend all day working out of a vehicle, I do, and I promise they use an eight hour loop, and if you listen all day every day for a couple of weeks you will soon realize that their selection isn't any better than the average FM station. The real appeal for me is the lack of commercials on the music channels and no worries about reception.

Just called to Cancel. Was first offered 1 year for $89 + fees, then was offered 6 months for $45. I mentioned having 5 months for $25. Had to "ask supervisor", about 5 seconds later. Came back with the OK. Entire phone call took no more than 5 minutes.

Called to cancel due to the Anthony Cumia firing and was given 3 months free. Not bad.

Same for me as with jeohde. I did make the mistake of calling 1 week before my expiration, so they started the 5 mos. today and gave credit for the unused week - would not just renew next week at the promo rate. Their business model leaves a lot to be desired. I wouldn't allow them my CC# for future billing, so they will invoice me for the (outrageous) renewal rate ($50.95 quarterly) in 5 mos. - dinging me for a $2 invoice fee along with the pro-rated renewal rate until you threaten cancellation to get the promo rate. They will not e-mail a reminder or invoice at renewal to avoid the charge, though they e-mail a confirmation of renewal/payment. Only way to avoid it is to keep track of the renewal date and call in advance.

  Same thing with me with the $89 and $25 deal offered. I wasn't offered the 5 months for $45 which I wouldn't have taken anyways I have been doing 5 month deals for 4 years now.. I put a reminder in my Google calendar and keep changing it to remind 5 months away.

Tip: After you get the deal signed up, send them an email a few days later and request that you NOT be put on autorenewal, which is always the default. There will be no invoices/billing fees/etc. because service will stop. Ignore the "last chance to pay 1/2 price" offers before expiration. Your service will just stop after the last day. Then the emailed/mailed offers in the mail keep getting sweeter. $25/6 months is par.

Or just ask them to take you off auto renewal!!  Do not let the auto renewal status stay active or you will miss out on deals and get negatively surprised if you forget to cancel on last day. 

Why did you call then 1 week early if you didn't wish to be renewed 1 week early?

The rep started with $89 + tax / 12 mon, then $45 + tax / 6 mon, and then I told her I wanted 6 mon for $25. She said she could do 5 mon for $20ish + tax for each unit. This is the same conversation I've had for quite a few renewals, but they won't just give me the 6 for $25 to start.

It is annoying to go through the same dance every 5 months…but it is a far better savings than paying ~$360/yr + tax (for 2 radios at the standard rate).

Just called, had to give all my information to someone, who then transferred me to someone else, who I had to give all my information to again. I told them I was not interested in keeping the service unless I could keep a similar rate, and they told me GFY. "You've been doing this for years ever since you got your car, the only way at which you can continue your subscription is at the regular rate, otherwise you must cut off your service." I told them to cancel, and within 10 seconds they said I was canceled.

We'll see if they come crawling back.
