Question If you already have XM Radio in one car, is there a cheaper way for your other car?

I'm curious if XM gives you a discount if you already have an existing account. I have a lifetime membership on the Alpine in my D90, but now they say for my Porsche it has only a trial account for 3 months and now they want $449.19 for 3 years. I bought a new jeep this year and they gave me a free year on that radio. Any advice since eventually I will have to pay more for 2 more accounts?

I would have to double check the exact cost but I believe my additional receiver only runs me about $150ish per year. Unfortunately I cannot check from work because it is blocked but will take a look later tonight (but know that it is nowhere near $450 for the second receiver).

They had a special, like $500 and you never have to pay again unless you switch radios, you get like 3 times you can change your radio at like $30 each time. I just want to know how to get it cheaper on my other cars since I have an existing account already.

I have it in all my vehicles. After you have one account each additional account is $7 month. At least that is the deal I got.

When I've activated a second and third radio it was only a couple bucks. Not a couple hundred.
