SirusXM and why I could never buy their service
I can understand that the Satelite Radio services like to offer a free trial with the purchase of a new car in hopes that they can get a subscription. However, it seems that. SiriusXM are the most bottom scraping low lives with their business practices that I wonder if I'd ever get the foul taste out of my mouth after my experience with them.
I signed the purchase agreement, but it took the dealer about a week to get the car in and ready before I picked it up. I took delivery on the first of October. On the 7th, I got an email from SiriusXM that they were giving me a 3 month free trial of their service, and all I needed to do was click on a link in the email and sign up. Except for the link in the email didn't work and told me that I had to phone them. And you guessed it, by the time I called them, they were shut. So it took me until the afternoon on the 10th to get them to sign me up and get the radio inside the car running. I told them, that if they are selling this promotion as 3 months, then I would expect to get 3 whole months of free radio and then I would evaluate. They agreed and said they would set the evaluation to expire on Jan 10th.
Not even 24 hours after I get the evaluation, they have already called my cell phone 3 times trying to get my to upgrade to a full paid package. The last one the sales person was going on about how my trial is about to expire and I should sign up right away so not to get any interruption in the service. It's been a whole 24 hours that I have had it working. If they are that scummy and won't even let you try out the service before constantly hounding you.
Just curious if anyone else got the same problem?
