How to Save on XM

When we bought our Pontiac G6 last March it came with 3 months of (XM) Satellite for free. After 2 months it cut off so I called and told them. Seems the dealer had it turned on for about a month since this car was an autoshow car. They gave us an additional 3 free months. In August when it ran out we got a call to extend it for 3 months for only about $15, or $5 a month. I agreed.

Well, yesterday I opened a letter from XM saying we now owed $155 with taxes for one year subscription. I called and the gentleman, he was nice, told me that they had it on recording that I agreed to a one year subscription once the 3 month deal ran out. I asked to listen to the recording and he said it wasn't possible from my end. I assured him that I was pretty cheap and would never agree to pay about $13 a month for the service.

After about 20 minutes of talking he said he would offer me a one time deal for just $77 for a year. I asked if I could call the next day and have the "deal" cancelled in December 09' without any suprises and he said yes. SO, I got a DEAL!

Deals can be had when it's not really worth it to you at the original price. Seems right now it is a buyer's market.

Now, go deal!
