You know what I'll really love about the merger? No more "sirius is so much better than XM", "XM has so much better blah blah blah". God I get sick of hearing people feud about these two services which are pretty much the same thing if you want to listen to music. I've had both services at different times for the last 8 years and there is not that much difference between the two. It's like comparing HBO to Showtime.
Here is what it usually comes down to. If you currently have Sirius, you think it's better. If you have XM, you think it's better.
If you have XM, tell them you want to cancel because it's too expen$ive. They'll cut you a deal.
I'm not in my car enough to justify $14/mo, so I called to cancel. They said how about $10/mo for a year, all paid upfront. I said that wasn't good enough. They said, okay, how about 1/2 off paid upfront. Something like $77 lump payment, but irons out to less than $6.50/mo.
I shouldn't be advertising this, as I'm an XM shareholder and this will cut into margins. But, like I told them, you can either get $6.50/mo out of me or get $0/mo - you choose.
