Car Insurance anyone…anyone?
I happen to have great car insurance, but once in a while I like to see what “the other guys” have to offer.
So…there was this “offer” on social media for drivers who haven’t had any tickets in the past 3 years.
I can understand the need for a birthday or to know what kind of car you own (No one in their right mind wants to give a quote to a 19-year-old with a Lamborghini). But then, they wanted name, address, email and phone number. My answer?
Address: 100 Not gonna give St. (but giving the city was all right)
phone: (800) 100-1000
email: email@example.com (as long as the @ and .com are there, it goes through.
So…after learning how to get past the system it says….
HERE ARE YOUR QUOTES
There were 3 “quotes,” and I had to click on the arrow individually for all 3.
Who were these “quotes” from?
- State Farm
And what happened when I clicked on each site? It said….. *drumroll*
“Start your free quote here.”
Because I gave the “middleman” no information:
- I skipped the “free quote” site that gives a spammer information to sell to people you don’t want email or phone calls from, and
- I didn’t waste my time getting quotes from companies who have said, in the past, “You’re with USAA? Sorry, we can’t beat their prices.”
If you’ve been in the US military, or you’re in the US military, you might want to check out USAA.com. No, I wasn’t in the military; I was able to get insurance through marriage.
Which marriage? Nope…not gonna go there.
