XM one year promo for $60

Called and simply asked for the $60 dollar promotion.

First try they said no because I already had one promotion.

2nd try, no problem. As a bonus, she combined my Odyssey XM account with my MDX account and restarted my 3 month promotion.

So after my 3 months run out, my one year begins.

Required credit card. She said I would be billed when the 3 month promotion runs out. $60 for each car.

Pretty good deal.

Thanks, slocko. I called XM and got the $60 year rate for our 04 TL but couldn't get that deal for our 04 MDX cause I put in an XM Roady receiver (aftermarket). But they allowed me to keep the Roady on the books under the family plan @ $6.99 a month. They explained that the deal is for Honda and GM factory installed units. Compared to what I had been paying, I will realize a savings of $60 next year. I listen to XM exclusively in each of our cars. I have a mountainous work commute and the signal is always right on.

XM radio says this promo is for pre-installed XM radio set (GM/HONDA/ACURA) only, and I get my next year service for $60. Unfortunately, when I asked them if I can pay $120 for 2 years, they said no....

Guys,

When you called, what information did they ask from you? VIN number perhaps? The reason I'm asking this is because I want to call them now but don't have the X with me.

Thanks.

XM $60.00 Year

Once again, I am appreciative of this board. I just called and they hooked me up for 1 year at the $60.00
This was my first time with XM, but in the week I have had it, it has been all I have listened to.

Nice feature that I sure won't do withiut in the future.

Thanks all!

I called XM radio and theY said I could only get the promo from the dealer....
I called back and got a different person, and she hooked me up with no hassle - $60 for 1 year beginning at the end of my 3 month trial.

(it's beyond me why the 1st person couldn't do that )

I had to give her the promo code that I found on another thread - if you need it, it is : ZWINBACK MYP1

parallels my experience - first CSR would not make any attempt to "tack on this promo to the first90day free trial" provided by MDX being an '05 and new sign-up. Refused outright (wasn't ugly or anything...just following her policy as she knew it).

So thanks to this thread....I called back....and pursuaded the 2nd CSR to go ahead (she did not want to initially) enter the promo and see "if the computer" would accept the promo...and it did. She was surprised herself....and commented it may be due to the type of car, as she had attempted to "tack on" the 1yr promo to GM cars still in the free 90day trial period...and her computer would not allow it.

maybe Acura has cut a deal w/ XM ?

FWIW, she never did ask me for the promo code, but seemed immediately to be aware of it. Also, she asked where I had seen the promotion...told her a forum for cars.

YMMV

Just got $60 per car for 3 years!

Thanks sigmachi96 for guiding me back to this thread.

I just called XM and said that I wanted to sign up for the $60 per year Acura promotion. I spoke with a CSR named Kia. She asked me if I had a promotion code, and I indicated that I did not, but I believed it was a promotion for new Acura/Honda/GM owners who have XM radio with their new car.

I also told her that I have two new 2005 Acuras (TL and MDX) and I wanted it for both cars and wanted to pay for three years upfront. She said that she would have to do some investigation and call me back. She called me back in about 20 minutes and said that I was all set and that I would be charged $120 annually (2 cars) for three years. She indicated that she noted my account to that effect.

Very Cool!

Just did the 60/yr thing, but the CSR had no knowledge of extending the 60/yr deal past the 1-year "special."

I may call back in a week or so and try to finagle something or other, and will report back as I can.

I asked about getting a $60/year deal for more than one year and they declined. I'll try them again after my 3 month free trial ends.

Finally got a chance to call XM, and got the deal on my first try. BTW, they asked for the promo code. Tried to extend the deal for another year but no luck. In any case, pretty good deal. Thanks.

hey, just tried to use the promotion on our 2005 steel blue. well, looks like i got an educated CSR, as he told me that the $60/yr deal was only good on vehicles passed their free 3 month evaluation.

so, i have to call back in 3 months to see if their offer is still good. on the flip side, i went out and bought a new delphi roady 2 for the 2004 mdx, and just finished installing it. that one is going on the family share plan.

this board rocks with all the neat stuff!

XM 1 year $60 renewal

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We got an 05 MDX and 05 RL about the same time in Nov but the MDX has a 3 month trial period for the XM service. I received a letter regarding renewing even though we have 2 more months to go. I found some info in another forum about this $60 promotional special that some TL members got. After several attempts to find someone who knew about this special I was able to renew the MDX at that rate for one year..starting from the date my trial period would have ended. My credit card would be charged at that time.

I asked if I could do the same for the RL, even though it was 11 months from now, and the answer was..yes!

I told him I had other people with new Acura's who would want to do this also, and asked what the best way to get right to people there who know about this promotion. He said when you call the toll free number, ask to be transferred to the "tier 2" billing dept. There is a promotional code: ZWINBACKMYP1 also.

Many thanks to the people at the other TL forum for info on the promo and forewarning about calling until you connect with someone knowledgeable at XM.

BTW, I forgot to ask how long this promo is going to last.
