Users of Sirius Satellite Radio can save money by paying yearly or negotiating the subscription rate, by taking advantage of online subscription discount offers or extending trial subscriptions and by using the subscription on multiple devices. Users who prefer to listen to sports, news, talk and entertainment commercial-free can save money by using satellite radio rather than cable or satellite television. A Sirius radio subscription is about $12.95 per month as of October 2015, a fraction of the cost of satellite cable.
In order to save money by using Sirius radio, choose a plan or negotiate a rate by using an online discount from websites such as RetailMeNot.com or Coupons.com. Customers who sign up for the Sirius email newsletter receive exclusive promotions, news and offers. Sirius listeners can also negotiate when purchasing a vehicle that has a trial subscription by extending the subscription for a lease's duration or negotiating the price of a subscription into the car's final cost.
Using Sirius radio can also help a user save money by having unlimited access without streaming music, which may seem free but counts against data plans. Carriers like Verizon are weaning customers from unlimited data plans, so music apps on a smartphone connected to car or home audio system are not cheap in the long run in terms of data usage costs.
