    July 31st or Jun 30th? That's weird, most of the offers are to sign up by Jun 30th so they get in the quarter.

    I got the card also.

    If you want to resubscribe, just use XMSCION03 as the promo code online and you will get free activation and 3 free months. It also works with a second radio, but I had to wait a few hours before the second radio would activate (I did it this morning).

    If the b-b-boys come back, great. I get them for free for a while. If not, it's gone again in 3 months. Either way, they don't get my money until I'm sure the show hasn't been diluted to a point where I can't listen to it.

    On a side note, they cancelled my old account, I got a refund for unused days left, and my online subscription was cancelled. For some reason, my XstreamXM is still working with my old username and password. Not sure what loophole it is using, but I got to listen to R&F (OK, mostly Ron) for the last month.

    Did you do a "family plan" on the 2nd radio for $6.99/month and that offer code worked with it? I got a new Acura with the XM preview which expires July 5 and was planning on creating a new account with this radio and then add my Helix. This free buffer until July 5th should give me a little time to see if its worth resubscribing, which could be 2 to 4 radios (another car + girlfriend's Nexus, which she is still pissed that I shut her radio off, but I pay for it, so I told her to reactivate under her name if she wanted, but has not).

    They may not get your money but they do get to report you as a subscription to wall street. In the short term, they are simply eager to show that their actions didn't have subscription consequences and that we'd all just come back when they called us back.

    Honestly, I am not sure if I am going back. I want to see how things go. Either way, I will not re sub until after july 1, and i will only activate one of my two subs.

    I think the card is standard proceedure, I work for Acura and ocassionally we get them here at the dealership for people that cancel their XM. XM is a bunch of morons.

    Y'know, I noticed that too. Howard is right under NFL on most sirius ads. I hate the way XM treats the show.:mad4:

    I told them that I probably would resubscribe after the suspension and that I didn't care about the activation fee, I'm wondering if that's why I haven't gotten any of these postcards, emails or phone calls.

    Yeah, I probably did. Did that card say July 31st or June 30th? I have a feeling the CS dummies wouldn't know if I got a postcard or not, anyone care to post a scan?

    Makes sense, damaged merchandise usually does come at a discount.

    I heard if you call up and repeat the following-
    "Fuck XM, Fuck XM, Fuck XM, I was only jokin", you'll get XM radio free for a year with no re-activation fee.

    The best part about the card is they know we cancelled because of OnA. There is not ONE mention of OnA anywhere on the promotional material on that card. But hey, after 3 years, why start now?

    All XM sends me is colored gentlemen telling me I still owe $6.35 on my account.

    I got 3 cards today, 1 for each radio ID I cancelled. You'd think they would consolodate.
