Ron --

I checked out the link, and the prices are nice. However, they require a 6 month subscription contract at $12.95 + shipping/handling. So, in terms of a second radio deal, it's probably not the best way to go.

Quote:
You are required to purchase three months of XM service when you purchase a radio through this promotion and to keep a minimum of six months continuous XM service. Failure to maintain an XM Consumer Plan or XM Family Plan monthly subscription for six months will result in a charge of $150 per Delphi MyFi , and $60 per radio for all other radios.

Doug,

Actually, it still is....

I mean, most people are going to pay for
their XM over the next 6 months anyway. The
$12.95 per month is no more expensive than
their normal rate.

I think it's a great deal, Ron, and one I've used in the past through other leads, but for a second radio price, the subscription in fact is more expensive. Second-to-fifth units are $9.99 (if I recall correctly).

Stu, you can move the radio on to your family plan and they prorate it, or make the radio you've just bought the 12.99 radio, and your older radio becomes a 6.99 radio

Good to know. I have 1 Roady, 2 SkyFis, and an XMPCR, so I'm set, I think...

I dont know if these unit are eligible, but xm is also doing a $50 rebate on radios purchased before 12-31.

i put a skyfi2 and a boombox in my cart and get 2 non removable or changable 3 month subs in the cart.

i doubt the rebate is usable here because the rebates on xmradio.com are instant rebates for other purchases.
edit from the disclainer just above the 6 month rule.
" Direct purchases through this web site cannot be combined with any other promotions or offers."

btw target has skyfi2 for about 97+ right now and you can downlaod the rebate from xmradio.com.


Product Description Qty Unit Price Sub Total

Delphi SkyFi2 Car Bundle
(1) $39.00

3 Months of Service
(2) $77.70

Delphi SkyFi 2 Boombox Bundle
(1)$69.00

Click to remove item from cart. Subtotal * $185.70

i know that looks a mess but it shows 1 skyfi bundle,
3 months of service, 2 charges, total 77.90,
1 boombox.

so i was charged 3 months for 1 boombox, 3 months for 1 skyfi.
so you have to pay for 3 months for every product put into your cart?
yes, i put a myfi ito the cart and another 38.85 fee is added on.
so do i now have to keep it for 6 months for every product and every 3 month prepaid plan?

i want this to be a good deal but it is confusing me, i normally dont confuse easily.

Thanks for the tip Ron. Based on your enjoyment of XM I had a unit installed in my car and LOVE it.

I used the link above to purchase the The Polk XRt12 reference tuner at a huge discount (even with the 3 month service charge) and cannot wait for it to come so I can enjoy it through my system. I guess I will have to settle for listening to it with my computer until it arrives. My boyfriend wants to get a stand alone boombox type unit for his father so I am starting to research that.

Thanks again.

T.

hi guys

Thanks Ron. Yours was the link I used when I purchased my xm2go. I tried that link again when I was first looking for the Inno, but then the Inno was not listed. Now it is :-)

I am in LA until Tuesday AM, then I am in Canada for the rest of the summer. Is there any retailer that would offer $300 ish pricing? I would go and purchase today / Sunday. If not I would have to wait until I get back to Maine around August 27th (the shipping / duties would kill me if I shipped to Canada).
