Yes! Double bonus score. I had my car serviced last weekend. I got an email “thank you” and oh by the way, you can get three months free of Sirius XM radio. No credit card required; only a link to sign up. Free subscription will terminate automatically once three months are up. I have email confirmation for March 1 to June 1. Woo to the Hoo!!
I had satellite radio for a while but after doing the funny math, I was oh hell no, NEVER again will I pay for airwaves! Besides Jack is good for all intents and purposes seeing as I do not live in my car. The commute sometimes feels like my car is my home but percentage-wise, I am out of my car more than I am in it.
In other vehicle related news, my TPMS came on. I briefly mentioned it here. Yesterday I made a same day appointment for Discount Tires. As luck would have it though, the indicator quit signaling and shows pressure on all tires of 35. B was right. He’s almost always right. Our convos Friday and yesterday morning went something like this …
Me: Damn dealer messed something up, why would my TPMS go off a week after servicing?
B: You sure it isn’t a glitch?
Me: Well you tell me.
B goes to inspect and sure enough the angry exclamation point surrounded by U is on the dash panel.
Me (the next day driving to Discount Tire – hands free dialing baby): Call B on cell.
Me: Hey the indicator isn’t on and the right front reads 35. Should I still go in?
B: No, I think the cold caused the glitch. Those sensors are sensitive. Sometimes cold throws them off but if you see tire pressure and no indicator, I wouldn’t go in.
Instead I took off to return boots to Target. Frugal as I am, the purchase was an impulse buy to use store credit from returning a three or four year old unused air filter. They gave me another in store credit but this time, I bought batteries that we needed for our remote control and one of B’s flashlights. I had just enough leftover to buy Sleepytime tea. Now that’s the sweet stuff.
As always, more to come.
