    I got free xm for 3 months when I got a new car. Was not impressed. Would crackle and break up every time under a bridge. Plus, between all the streaming music, usb, phone etc, how much do you really need XM?

    ^^ Yes that's the catch. It's built into many new(er) cars but otherwise I can't see anyone buying a radio for only 2 weeks of use. Maybe get one cheaper used on eBay or at a pawn shop, craigslist, etc.

    OTOH, if you have an inactive receiver sitting around (say, it was built into the car when you bought it), now's a perfect time to fire it up and let it see sky for a while.

    It's possible, especially with the old receivers, that if you then toss it in a drawer for a few months, it might work when you fire it up later, and might work for quite a while before another deactivation message comes down.

    Also got the free 3-month deal (and decent reception) on a new car in 2007. When the 3 months were up I called to cancel and they made a decent offer, about $70 a year. After the year ended I got some kind of crazy renewal notice (like $180) so I called to cancel and they renewed the $70. It's now 6 years later, and I go through the same ritual every March.

    Regarding "just hooking up your cell phone" yeah that's not a bad alternative. Still, there are some XM stations I like, and prefer not to fumble with the phone every time, plus the connection is wired. HOWEVER the next car I get, I'll look for Bluetooth audio and yeah goodbye Sirius-XM forever.

    I wouldn't get this deal. I have been a customer for 5+ years and clear channel has taken over most of the channels with commercials streaming in them. Your local FM sounds better, the normal $140/year subscription is a rip off.
