#Consumers #heads-up – don’t get #ripped off …..


This thing (great idea) for #commercial #free-radio and #uncensored listening started out about 50.00$ a year. They were just hanging out the #GOLDEN-PORK-CHOP to get everyone #hooked. It did not take to long after they reeled in millions of customers; the commercials started raining down on us and the price gradually skyrocketed.

Right out of the box Sirius hired the shock Jock Howard Stern to attract listeners, at the tune of 500,000.00$ a year. Very good move.

Don’t feel sorry for the company; they have not missed a lunch since then.

Sirius XM Holdings’ revenue 2003-2020Sirius XM Holdings’ revenue hit 6.35 billion U.S. dollars in 2020, which is a decrease from the 7.79 billion U.S. dollars in the previous year. Pandora, which the company acquired in early 2019, reported record ad revenue of 1,18 billion in 2020.Mar 24, 2021

Fast forward, their price per year for the loaded package is now a whopping 200.00$ a year plus.

SiriusXM Unveils New Platinum VIP Subscription – PR Newswirehttps://www.prnewswire.com › news-releases › siriusxm…

Jul 26, 2021 — Platinum VIP is priced at $34.99/month. For more info on all that it offers, go to siriusxm.com/platinumvip. “Platinum VIP is a terrific …

34.99$ per month is a far cry from where they started. I guess that is good business, BUTT I would call it a little unethical. Like anything else; if they can get the suckers to pony up that amount, why not charge.

One thing subscribers should know. Sirius is very serious when it comes to loosing a customer. After all, all it takes to connect or disconnect someone is the click of a mouse.

I just called them to renew my subscription and told them, the most I would pay is 100.00$ a year or I would cancel. Now; I am not totally one way. I settled for 120.00$ per year. They hate to hear the word cancel. I may have gotten them lower, BUTT I am not a total Scrooge.

If you don’t care and want to pay more, go to it. If you want to save a few dollars, the key word is negotiate. Don’t be bashful, the squeaking wheel always get the grease.

Do your part in squeezing the Eagle ass and get those boys back down to earth.

This method/ good business does not only apply to Sirius; there are dozens of companies that are willing to DO A DEAL if they are pressed, BUTT the key word is CANCEL.

If you follow my advice and feel generous after your savings, you have my email address. Contact me, I can use a few extra dead presidents.
