I just did the 'Threaten to Cancel' phone call on the 9th. I always get either the 5 months for $25, or 6 months for $30 deal, and this is on my 07 Fusion.
Got the 6 month deal this go 'round, which is what I prefer, an extra month before the call again. And just if anyone doesn't know, the phone call usually lasts 7 or 8 minutes from start to hang up. It only took me 6 minutes this time.
Royalty fee went up from my last 5 month deal:
The royalty fee was $3.37 for 5 months back in August of 2017. [.67.4 cents a month]
This time the royalty fee is $4.16 for the 6 month deal. [69.3 cents a month]
That's not much of an increase, now is it?
I recently got a notice that the royalty fees were going up too. I don't have the notice handy but it was a significant increase, as I recall.
I had two subscriptions for many years. I dropped one of them. I had a portable that I used in my 2nd car and plugged it into a boombox at home. I'm not in my 2nd car enough to make it worthwhile and now with Amazon Echo, I can hear whatever I want in the house.
There's plenty of competition out there now. They're going to have to keep giving discounts.
They're still doing the discounts, at least as of last Tuesday. I have the "select" plan on an annual basis, and even with the discount, it still costs $125/year. This will probably be the last time I resubscribe, since being retired, I just don't drive the car that much, and when I do, I prefer peace and quiet. On the rare occasion when I do listen, it's either the '60's channel or the '70's channel.
Between the cost of Sirius and my other electronic communications bills (phone, cable TV, internet), I'm sorely tempted to cut all the connections and enjoy life as a hermit!
Now what is going on with the site layout? It has switched back to white. If I read a post, there is a GIANT colored square with a letter in it, unless they have a picture tied to their profile. And who knows what else is messed up again.
Hi Everyone. Just got a 2018 Fusion. It has pushbutton start, doesn't have passive entry.
My question: is there an alternative key fob for this thing? The one it came with is just too dang big. It takes up too much room in my pocket.
Is there an aftermarket fob or one from another Ford or another manufacturer that is compatible but smaller? I have both original fobs so I am hoping I can program a third, smaller fob.
