Jeff, I didn't get in on the last deal, but of course I just pre-ordered the Kenwood Plug & Play, but for the sake of those that don't know the specific details of the Friends and Family deal it may be worth spelling out.

Maybe showing some pictures of the Audiovox and Panasonic units, with some specs.

Good idea DAB.

For those new to the 'Friends & Family' program, it's quite simple.

Sirius will send you a complete satellite radio kit, including everything you need to activate the service...tuner, FM-mod, antenna and controller.

What's the catch you may ask? All you have to do is install the system and activate it. The hardware is free as long as you commit to a year of service. The service can still be billed monthly, but they just want a verbal commitment that you will stay with them for at least a year.

I'm sure you'll be with the Dog for life once you try it.

So if you already have Sirius and are looking at putting it in another car, this is a great way to do it. Or perhaps you know a friend, family member or neighbor who you think would love Sirius but won't go out and buy it themselves.

Feel free to throw any other questions out there.

Jeff

OK, what's the catch here, is this really legit? What specific models of these receivers are they 'giving' away? So all I have to do is tell folks to call this number 5/1 and in awhile a box shows up in the mail with a receiver, no charge, except for sigining up for a year (are we talking about $12.95/month or some other price)? Sorry to be untrusting but I'd like some more details before I tell my coworkers about this. Thanks - Rick

All the information it listed above in this thread? Do you have any specific questions? There is NO catch, other than the fact they would have to agree to continue the service for one year. Considering they would be getting free hardware, that is not a bad deal at all. The hardware models offered are pictured in the original post. I am not sure what other details or information you need? This deal was offered before and several people in this forum took advantage of it, so YES its legit.

This is completely legit. I took advantage of this back in March. I got the Panasonic unit. I installed everything myself. All I had to do was activate it by a certain date. Tip: activate it online and activation is only $5.00.

You will not go back once you have Sirius.

I also took advantage of this last month. I got the Jensen, which is no longer in stock. Great deal! Mine's installed in the house.

If you guys are thinking about getting Sirius, jump on this deal!

Rick,
It's totally legit. All you do is call and order your kit, either Panasonic or Audiovox. I recommend the Panasonic.

They ship you everything via FedEx and you either install it yourself or have it done at a local shop.

Friends don't let friends listen to FM. Sign them up today!

Alright folks, I've been given the go-ahead to flip the switch. So get your orders in NOW!

They will ship as soon as they get them in stock, which will be next week, but go ahead and get in line.

The Panasonics are limited, and they aren't sure if they'll be getting more. Audiovox is your next best option.

HEY EVERYONE, PLEASE...

Do not pass this specific information on the SiriusBackstage F&F deal on other people, boards or forums!! We want to use this exclusive deal to bring people to SiriusBackstage, register them as users, and to get them involved in spreading the word. Pass along the info on the site, getting them registered and involved. Then they can get the specific info Jeff posted in the Insiders forum!

That is one of the reasons I asked Jeff to make the Insiders forum for registered users only. This deal, along with more registered users, will only help promote this site as the #1 Sirius site on the net!
