Start Your SiriusXM Free Trial Without Worrying About Your Credit Card Info

SiriusXM Holdings Inc. is an American broadcasting company that provides online radio and satellite radio services operating in the U.S. The company was formed by the 2008 merger of XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio, uniting them into SiriusXM Radio. By the end of March 2020, SiriusXM had around 34.77 million subscribers. 

Does SiriusXM Offer a Free Trial?

Yes, SiriusXM offers a free trial

There are two options to choose from:

  1. Listening to SiriusXM both inside your car and on other devices
  2. Listening to SiriusXM outside of your car—on your phone, laptop, or online

Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll get a three-month free trial. The difference is that, if you want to listen to SiriusXM inside your vehicle, you won’t be required to give the company your credit card information. 

The situation is a bit different if you’re not a car owner or don’t want to connect the service with your car’s radio. A credit card is required to start a SiriusXM free trial on other devices, and additional fees and taxes apply as well. 

How to Activate SiriusXM Free Trial

How you will activate SiriusXM free trial depends on whether you have purchased a new or a pre-owned vehicle:

  • New Vehicle—In case you’ve bought a new four-wheeler, it might come with a factory-installed SiriusXM. If that’s the case, your trial should be active from the moment of purchase
  • Pre-owned car—If you’ve bought a used car, ask the dealer whether the vehicle came with an active free trial. This is highly unlikely, but it doesn’t hurt to ask

In case the vehicle came with a SiriusXM free trial, but the radio is not on or is not receiving all the channels, you can do these two things:

  1. Refresh the radio using your RadioID
  2. Call 1-866-635-9632 for help

Can I Listen to SiriusXM Outside of the Vehicle?

With streaming SiriusXM, you can listen to it on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android devices, etc. Both free trial options include streaming on other devices, and you’ll be able to enjoy over 300 channels.

Find Out What Channels and Services You Can Get With Your Trial Subscription

By logging into the Online Account Center, you can determine what type of package you have received with your trial subscription. In case you are logging in for the first time, you need to register by using your Radio ID. 

There’s also a possibility of creating a customized channel guide you can download and keep in your car to find channels and programs you are interested in. The process is rather straightforward—all you need to do is click the checkmark next to the genre you want to include in your custom channel guide.

When it comes to music, there’s something for everyone, from classic hits, hip hop, and R&B to classic rock, metal, jazz, and even opera. Apart from standard radio channels that only play music, you can also select between different Talk channels—featuring comedy shows and podcasts—and Sports channels. 

To save your custom channel guide, you will have to provide SiriusXM with your name, email, and phone number. The company will occasionally send promotional emails, asking you to upgrade to a paid service, as well as newsletters with information about new channels. 

If you want to stop receiving emails from SiriusXM, you can leverage DoNotPay to get rid of spam for good. Log into your DoNotPay account from your web browser or iOS app, navigate to the Spam Collector tab, and forward the unwanted email to spam@donotpay.com. Upon receiving the email, we will automatically unsubscribe you from SiriusXM’s mailing list. Keep in mind that you can use this feature to unsubscribe from any unwanted emails. 

Will SiriusXM Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription?

Whether the free trial renews automatically or not depends on the option you chose when creating your SiriusXM account. The company will not ask you for credit card information if you opt for the Listen Inside Your Car option. 

Given that you’re not connecting your credit card to the SiriusXM account during this free trial, there’s no possibility of getting charged after the three-month period. If you want to continue using the service after that, you will need to upgrade your account to one of the paid packages.

Do You Want to Avoid an Automatic Renewal? DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card Is the Solution!

How many times did you subscribe for a free trial, forgot all about it, and ended up paying for the service you don’t want? If you would rather avoid wasting money, once you decide to sign up for a SiriusXM Premier free trial, you can use DoNotPay’s virtual credit card instead of your real card. That way, you will not have to think about when you need to cancel SiriusXM Premier. 

You can access DoNotPay from any web browser or download it on any iOS device. DoNotPay’s virtual credit card isn’t connected with you in any way, shape, or form. You can use any name or address, and DoNotPay will provide you with the credit card number and expiration date. 

SiriusXM—or any other company for that matter—won’t be able to tell the difference. You’ll start a free trial as you would with an actual card, but you won’t have to worry about getting charged automatically after it ends since DoNotPay’s card isn’t connected to your bank account.
