Glad to hear you/re happy with the insurance. I just put my house and car with them. I saved well over $650 by switching for the same coverage. I've also finally come to the realization that it's just wise to shop auto insurance about every 3 years. In that time the company you're with will have eased your rate up to regain that attractive "discount" they gave you to start with. The next company stands ready to make you a deal you can't refuse, which, itself, will also disappear over the next couple years. I'm sorry it took me thousands of dollars over the years to realize this fact.

Ken - I think you are mostly right about that: Allstate, State Farm and Progressive will give you low teaser rates and then start jacking up the price after a year or so. But I found Geico doesn't play that game so I have been with them for about 10 years now.
Given my political orientation, I have never trusted US Corporations so I have always been acutely aware of abrupt changes to price and have changed my car insurance provider often over the years whenever they have tried to maximize profit in regard to me.

Turns out, my brother is experiencing this very same situation right now. He's in Florida, so the problem isn't local by any means.

Hey Facebook!!! Stop with the stupid commercials about how you’re changing things.

It’s not like you’ve discovered what you did wrong.

You got caught and are now past your sell by date.

Does anybody else get those annoying and obnoxious "Sling TV" commercials?

They suck

I have only seen one of those ads, fortunately.
We watch "old" tv - that which appeals to older folks. Thus we are inundated with drug ads, none of which we remember.

No, never. We have Dish and for the moment that is enough. Did try Directv Now when it came out but you had to use Chrome to ask questions, etc. I refuse to use Google products if I can avoid it.
