It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
Mine was also about 15 bucks a month. I'm thinking I need to get it again, I really enjoyed it. Definitely give them a call and see what sort of deal you can work with them... they will usually cut you something to keep you on. Sat radio companies need to retain all the customers they can.
XM plays a shell game. If you are willing to shell out $180 or so for an annual subscription, then that is what they will tell you is the best available price. But if you push them on it they will come down to about $85 for the year.
My subscription was due to expire the end of this month so I called them. When I told the rep that the service wasn't worth that much to me, he connected me to a cancellation rep. That rep looked at my account and saw that I was on a $77/year promotion rate and offered to renew me on this year's promotion rate - just a bit higher to account for a "royalty fee". So now I have the service for $85 or about $7 per month.
I think they make you do that dance on the assumption that most folks will just pay the higher rate, but they would rather have you at a lower rate than lose you entirely.

I know with all the commercials on "Regular" radio satellite radio sure seems worth it in the end, everytime we have a rental with it, thats all we listen too... And about $15 a month is what we were finding. $7 a month would be a dream! LOL
The best I got was $109/year. I'm happy enough with it; beats listening to commercials and I get blues, bluegrass, hair bands, classic country, etc. ---- all at the touch of a button. Almost anywhere.
Priceless, really. Especially for us old guys that can remember wheeling before there were even ATMs or PCs.
I don't remember what the lifetime subscription was (400-500 I think), but I've got it on two vehicles. IMHO it is the best bet if you enjoy Sirius (or XM). The subscription follows YOU, not the vehicle. For example, I bought my wife's subscription a few years back. Sold the ride and replaced it with a new car. The subscript followed along. Figure after 4 years or so of having the subscription it'll have paid for itself.
'course if you are debating about getting it at all...just see how many regular radio stations you DON'T get when wheeling out in the middle of nowhere.
Mine just ran out about a month ago. We'll actually Feb was a year but it didn't stop working for over a month after. They will send you all sorts of stuff in the mail. I was getting stuff saying $144 for the year plus fee's and taxes. I called them up and asked them if that's the best they could do. They then said they could give it to me for 50% off but that was still coming till like 90 bucks after taxes and fee's so I said no thanks. They then got it down to somewhere around $65. So I said ok and got it for that
