One of the worst offenders, however, is my car insurance company. It seems I get something from them every day trying to sell me life insurance, buy one of their retirement planning products, or just requesting me to come in and have all my needs reevaluated.
Which is exactly where a particular one I received recently was destined to end up? But as I ripped the envelope open, and pulled it half way out and only partially unfolding the paper inside I saw "5%" somewhere on the page. I stopped, gently unfolded it the rest of the way, and read the text on the page.
Safe Driver Monitoring System
The letter was introducing a new program in which people who enrolled received a device that clipped onto their car's sun visor. As the vehicle was driven around, it would record the following pieces of information:
Using this information, my insurance company would calculate how safe of a driver I am and potentially give me a discount on my car insurance. A sliding scale was shown, generally awarding a higher potential discount the lower the mileage the car was driven yearly.
Matching our estimated yearly mileage average for our van, we would get a 5% discount just for signing up, but up to a potential savings of 16% based upon how safe of a driver the program thought we were.
Low Mileage Insurance Plans
While it wasn't the purpose of the mailing, it did mention that they offered lower rates for cars that are driven a low amount of miles each year. Our car is just such a vehicle since we typically drive our van everywhere our entire family goes. The mailing estimated that this kind of insurance plan could be 25 - 50% cheaper than a standard plan.
Given the kinds of discounts mentioned in the mailing, I have a phone call to make to my insurance company to enroll in the monitoring system, and to investigate switching plans for our car.
Have you ever almost thrown out a piece of mail that ended up being very important or useful?
