I just called to renew and it seems others are right.. Sirius' prices do not stay the same from one rep to another. This rep quoted me the following:
Select for six months = $29.78
Select + TL for six months = $42.43
Select for one year = $102.51
Select + TL for one year = $125.70
This rep asked me what the previous rep had quoted to me. That is why both six month prices are the same. After telling her this info, I quickly realized I should probably shut up and see what she offered me. LOL! And it worked! Her offer for the select for one year was less than my previous quote.
So, I ended up renewing with the Select & TL for the $125.70. Seems pretty equal to what most others have reported getting ($86 or $89 plus royalties, taxes, etc.). My total includes all fees and taxes as I made it clear to my rep that I was only interested in hearing the OUT THE DOOR TOTAL CHARGE. My total is a little higher than others here probably because of my desire to have the TL and I assume no one else here got that feature as they didn't mention it.. but I could be wrong.
Many thanks to SocialGordon
for posting the phone number (866-635-4070 for those who missed it!) to speak with an American rep (or at least someone I could understand!). I first called the number the rep last Friday gave me to call back. This connected me to Reshad? To say the least, it was a frustrating call and I ended up hanging up on him mid-sentence.. and I *never* do that.
All in all, a good experience so far. But we shall see what happens next year when I have to deal with the cancellation department to negotiate a new deal.
