Own a Home? This One Step Could Get You a $974 Discount on Insurance
Homeowners: What if we said you could save $974 on your homeowners and auto insurance this year?
Wait! Before you roll your eyes and mutter “Yeah, right,” hear us out.
One of the easiest ways to save on insurance is to bundle your homeowners and auto insurance policies.
But before you pick up your phone and call your current provider, we have an easier — and more effective — solution: Use a free online service called Gabi, which will automatically find you the best prices.
The Best Way to Bundle Your Insurance (It’s Not What You Think)
When it comes to bundling, your first inclination might be to pick up the phone and call your current insurance provider — “Hey, tack on my auto insurance, will ya?”
But that’s not always the best approach when it comes to saving money.
For starters, when’s the last time you explored your insurance options? You might be able to find a better deal if you switch companies.
Instead of calling up dozens of companies — or worse, getting quotes online and subsequently wading through an inbox full of spammy emails — you can get a free quote comparison with Gabi.
It takes all of two minutes. We’ll walk you through the process really fast:
Head over to Gabi's website.
Answer some basic questions about yourself, and connect your insurance accounts or upload a PDF of your policy details. By doing this, Gabi can better understand your coverage and give you a true apples-to-apples comparison — without shorting you on coverage.
Explore your options. Find something you like? You can easily buy the new policy directly through Gabi.
Here’s another cool part: If Gabi finds that you can actually save the most money by splitting your homeowners and auto insurance between two companies (not bundling), it’ll let you know.
Oh, and if you already have the best price? Gabi will tell you that, too. Then it’ll continue to keep an eye on other options and let you know if something better pops up.
Using this strategy, Gabi says it’s saved its users an average of $974 each year on auto and home insurance. Think about it: That could potentially cover your mortgage payment for this month.
Go ahead and grab your free quote. You have nothing to lose — except potentially hundreds of dollars to your current insurance providers.
