Default XM Radio Renewal at Half Price

For over 3 years now certain Accura owners have been renewing their XM service for just $77 per year.

There is a good thread on their board discussing this. Here is the link;

http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showt...2&page=1&pp=25

Like I said, I've followed this for a while now and can summarize the years of discussion for you. They say to follow the script exactly. Do not try to modify it. Here is their script.

First... call and make sure they are not going to auto renew you and charge your credit card. Have your radio code and call the customer service number. Tell them you want to let it expire because it's too expensive at full rates.

Then, they might offer you the $77 deal. If so, skip the rest of these steps and take it. If not, hang up after making sure it will not auto renew.

After it cancels, then call in with the script about having gotten a flyer. See the big yellow scan of the flyer posted previously here http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showp...5&postcount=59


SCRIPT FOLLOWS:

Then call the 1-800-321-7117 number and read the script: "Hello. My subscription to XM Radio has expired but I just got a flyer with a special offer. I would like to take advantage of this offer for $77 for a year.

If they ask for the promotion code, say "zwinback". If they ask for the radio code, give that to them. They WILL ask for it because that's the only way they can turn it on. If you had, in fact, gotten a flyer, it would have your radio code printed on it so have it handy.

Note; I have not tried this yet because my 3 month trial does not expire until May. But you can bet on the fact that I will follow these instructions then!

Hey newbie here on the site..I've mostly been a lurker in regards to getting updated information on the Outlook. I usually wait a year to purchase a new vehicle coming out, so next year I'll plan to purchase since I've been hearing such good news about this CUV.

Back to question in hand, I actually have an Acura TL and have visited that website stating what to do when renewing or cancelling XM service. I followed those directions after buying a one-year subscription and they offered me the promotional plan of $77 for a year. Just make sure you call before the promotional plan is up so you can try to renew it again.

Good luck

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
