I get the impression that the xm receiver being given away here is not hard mounted and can be moved from one vehicle to another, ergo, only one subscription.
whoever got lucky enough to get it, or if you have a sub to xm, here's something to try. first things first. make sure you call them and remove your credit card from autorenewal, tell them you want to be invoiced. no surprises in your bill that way. then, when your subscription is getting ready to expire, call them and tell them you don't think you're getting your money's worth and you want to cancel. they will transfer you to another dept. and if you tell them you want to cancel, they'll end up offering you a 6 month subscription for $27 neighborhood. if you do manage to get someone on the line who is not going to give you a deal like that, be prepared to go ahead and cancel. you'll end up with an offer in the mail.
I did this for over 3 years. finally, I just got completely sick of xm and went ahead and cancelled (for real). I kept getting offers in the mail for a couple of years, and even still occasionally get one.
now, it's been a while since I did this, so ymmv. but it's worth a try still.
