How would you feel if you found out you were wasting nearly $900 this year?

We found an app called Jerry, and it can tell you if you’re paying too much on your car insurance.

In fact, Jerry says it finds that people, on average, are overpaying by about $887 a year. 

And here’s the kicker: Once you’re with Jerry, you’ll never have to worry about shopping around for insurance again. From now on, Jerry will automatically do that for you.

Also, it won’t cost you anything — it’s free.

How to Find Out if You’re Getting Ripped Off (It Takes 2 Minutes)

When it comes to car insurance, it’s smart to shop around every six months or so, because companies are notorious for charging wildly varying rates. Their prices are all over the place, so you never know if you’re overpaying. 

But we get it. Not many of us have time to do this. That’s why Jerry is nice. You’ll take a few minutes to initially check your rates, then Jerry automatically handles the rest.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the online questionnaire. This should take less than two minutes.
  2. Jerry looks at your current insurance policy, then compares prices for the same policies (yup — same coverage) from up to 45 insurance companies.
  3. Then, let Jerry take care of the paperwork for you to switch policies and save money. Jerry will even deal with phone calls to set up your new insurance.

Oh, and if you’re worried about ditching your current policy, know that you don’t have to wait until your policy runs out. In fact, by law, insurance companies will have to give you a refund for the remaining unused days on your policy.

If there are any cancellation fees involved (these are usually small), Jerry will let you know.

Never Worry About Getting Ripped Off Again

Let’s take a wild guess: You’re probably not looking forward to shopping for a new insurance policy every six months, are you? 

The good news is, you don’t have to.

Before every six-month renewal of your policy, Jerry will once again compare quotes to find you the best possible price. Automatically. Then it’ll give you three top options to choose from.

Oh, and if you have home or renters insurance? Jerry will let you know if you’re paying too much on those, too.

Find out if you’re getting ripped off in less than two minutes. You could save close to $900 this year.
