Dearest Flo upped our car insurance and our homeowners insurance AGAIN! I hate and I mean, I HATE changing insurance companies. It takes forever to get everything straightened out. So I let it slide last year when they upped it just a little bit.
We have been with Progressive for 3 years and everything was peachy the first year and a half and then everything started to creep up. Damn you Flo, damn you.
Our monthly bill was going from $338 to $350 a month. That is crazy money.
I checked out Geico and it was so easy to use their site. The site downloaded most of the information that needed to be entered. I have no idea how they got all the vin numbers from our cars and our drivers license numbers but hey, I didn't have to do it. It might be magic.
Guess how much we are saving? No really, guess. Fine, be a party-pooper. We are saving half. Yes, HALF! Our new bill will be $175 a month and we will have better coverage. Mind you, I know that in 2ish years, I will be back here complaining that Geico upped our rates but hey, I'll take it where I can get it.
So the moral of the story is we should check for better rates every year. I left the homeowners with Progressive because it has been paid already but I will next year to see if we can get it cheaper somewhere else.
Now if I could only shop around and get half off of all of my other bills!
