I'll use some "not so used" categories!
I've decided that being my auto insurance is up for renewal next month that I will shop around for the best price I can get. I have been with this company, I won't mention their name *cough* progressive *cough* since I first got my learners permit, over 10 years ago. I usually pay in full (which I will not anymore being I got the brand new car and it's a bit more).
After using a few websites that send you quotes and calling a few places, I was honestly shocked to see that this company *cough* progressive *cough* was over $100 MORE then any other company (geico not included - but I won't go with them because of that STUPID lizard). I mean I have been with this company for so many years where is my "loyal customer" discount? Or at least my FAIR price?? They were always the best priced for me, but all of a sudden they are $100 more then the rest? Do they think they can just WALK over loyal customers??
Needless to say, tomorrow I will send all my info to another company, the lowest bidder for the SAME exact coverage (actually better coverage) and will start with them when mine runs out. The cheapest company also gives a discount for doing a direct payment from my account!! That stupid company *cough* progressive *cough* just lost a customer for life. One that was never late with payments (my credit is through the roof) and one that just purchased a brand new car. Stupid Insurance Company!
On the plus side, my new insurance company sponsors my favorite NASCAR driver.. hehehe, so convenient! Kinda made my day that they were the cheapest!
