Default If you have xm radio and are pinching pennies...

Call them and tell them you are thinking of getting rid of it because it costs too much!

DH cancelled my xm oh, I don't know, 6 months ago, and they have been wooing us ever since. Initally when he called to cancel it, they offered him a better deal on the spot. I think it was $5-8 less a month, but hey, every penny counts these days! I just got another e-mail asking me to come back for some cheapy rate.

This also worked with our DirecTV. A few years ago when we started getting out of debt, we called DirecTV to ask about cancellation policies. They immediately offered us a cheapie package that they don't even advertise. It was all the channels we love so we went for it. It saved us a gob of money and we still got most of the channels that we love.

also works great for the newspapers.
(we get the full week at the sunday only rate)

If I were pinching pennies, though, I wouldn't have XM radio at all. (and I don't right now! )
why pay for something you get for free to begin with? Radios in general are just fine for me.... no need to get all fancy....
