I will be totally honest here and say that even though I have thought about it many times and even talked to my husband about it, when it comes to car insurance we continue with the same provider we have had for over 10 years. It could just be that we are comfortable, plain lazy or it just gets pushed aside because other things just happen to come first. For example in the last couple months alone we have had two floods in our kitchen, one when overnight the refrigerator water dispenser hose just happened to decide to leak. Another when the water heater pressure valve blew sending the pressure to the weakest area under our kitchen sink. So while we were watching an episode of Hell’s Kitchen, all Hell broke loose. Thank God we were home for that one, when we finally where able to turn off the valves, which by the way did not stop the water from pouring out, as we scrambled and yelled ”what the Hell is going on.”
The truth is since before my husband and I were even married, we have never really taken the time to get a quote from another car insurance provider, ever. Why? Because it just has not been an emergency. But just this week another mishap, we had to replace the water heater because it was leaking even though it was only four years old -thank you warranty. But when I think of all the money we could be saving which we really could use lately on the plumber, who by the way is quickly becoming our best friend, and the contractor who will be replacing our kitchen floor. Well, it just makes me want to kick myself, then my husband.
So when I was offered to hookup Snapshot from Progressive for 30 days, I thought why not, now is my chance to see how much we can save with another provider. You see Snapshot is a little device that you clip into your vehicles diagnostic port. Once you start your vehicle the little bugger is activated. While using Snapshot you can actually track your progress on Progressive.com. Snapshot shows you and Progressive things about your driving like how often you slam on the brakes, how many miles you drive each day, and what time of day you drive. Then after 30 days Progressive reads my personal Snapshot of my driving and if I could and should be paying less for auto insurance. Being a safe driver why should I be paying the same rate as a lousy driver. It all makes sense and for this very reason I am taking the Snapshot Test Drive. It’s about time!
Listen hear anyone can try Snapshot. You don’t need to switch your insurance to try it. Yup that’s the honest truth. So I will be sharing my best day-in-the-life driving story here with you guys and hopefully not boring you all to death. In the meantime I will also be running a Team Flo Swag Bag giveaway. So be sure to enter. In fact I love Flo so much I am actually jealous I don’t get a Flo Swag Bag.
