I scored big in the savings department this week. We purchased a new to us van last year that came with a 3 month free trial of Sirius XM radio. Well, when that ran out, they sent us an offer to pay something like $35 for 6 months. After Tim gave me the pitiful eyes I agreed and found an offer through TopCashBack for $10 back, meaning we paid $25 after cashback for 6 months. It was a lifesaver on the drive down to Disney!
Well, the golden age has ended. Our special promotion was set to expire and was going up to $22 a month. Even if we had dropped down to the lowest package, we were looking at $130. Yikes.
I called to cancel our service and boom- they offered us another 6 months under the same promotion we were about to lose. The representative told me to just call back in 6 months and they’d see what they could do for us.
So now I have a very happy husband, we get to keep Sirius and I have a much better radio package than I would have paid MORE for if I’d paid retail. It never hurts to call and ask.
I’m doing pretty well with cutting back on unnecessary expenses to save money.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for Disneyland After Dark events- unfortunately nothing is happening while we’ll be there yet. Fingers are still crossed though, you never know when something new might pop up!
