Just got an offer to reactivate my subscription on our F-150 truck that's finally in my comfort zone: $99 for 3 years, or $149 for 5 years. It seems to be somewhat restricted ("certain radios"?), but many have had good luck with pressing for offers not on the table when their subscription expires. We have been letting our subscriptions expire and upping for their "standard" reenlistment offer of 6 months @ $5.00 per month. I'm going to see if they'll extend our subscriptions before they expire. Here's their fine print:

Offer Details: Activate a 36 month (3 year) Select subscription and pay $99 for your first 36 months, a savings of 82% off the current monthly rate of $15.99, or activate a Select 60 month (5 year) subscription and pay $149 for your first 60 months, a savings of 84% off the current monthly rate of $15.99. Fees and taxes apply. A credit or debit card is required for this offer. Service will not automatically renew. To cancel you must call us at 1 866-635-2349. See our Customer Agreement for complete terms. All fees and programming subject to change. This offer cannot be combined with any other and is available only for certain radios.
Please report any positive results!

$99 for 3 yrs, not $99/yr for three renewals?
For the past couple of years I've taken the $99/year plan which just recently has added streaming at no extra cost. Sometimes you have to let your radio go inactive for a couple of weeks... but it's worth it for the big savings you get.
Just hang tight and let the offers come to you :)

A couple weeks before the end of my trial they called me offering things. Every. Day. For about a week. I think one offer was down to $2/month for a period I don't remember. I'm not interested in paying for the service and finally had to really make that clear. They haven't bothered me since.
I did quite like the 6, 7, 8, sorta 9 channels though.
But being in northern latitudes, if one is going along a valley on the south side with a ridge/hill/mountain immediately to the south then it loses sight of the satellite and cuts out. I guess the same kinda thing happens with PORS (plain old radio system :) ) with terrestrial range but I'm not paying for that.

Just give them a call, ask them for the customer retention group, it's a call center queue just for 'retaining' customers who are going to 'cancel.' You can organically get there by calling up to cancel about half the time. Why only half? Because half their customer service associates don't care and they simply take your cancellation request as is. It never hurts to just ask them for the promo rate. I've been doing it on my Cable TV for 2 years now. The rep actually told me the day to call in 6 months so I can ask for the new customer rate at a point where there won't be any swing in my monthly bill. I put a calendar entry.

I pay 60 bucks a year per vehicle, for both my car and my truck.
Me too Tim. After my (very short) trial expired, I started getting flyers in the mail every week, starting with obscene offers that got successively better until they reached $60/year. I bit on that -- but my calendar entry is in place for the date it expires!
