My Snapshot Day-in-the-Life Story & a Team Flo Swag Bag Giveaway!

I have mentioned before I believe in cutting costs and saving money whenever possible.  It’s just a good idea.  Car insurance is certainly one of many areas that I like to maximize my savings.  Before I selected our current insurance agency, I called several different places trying to find the best benefits with the lowest cost.  At that point I considered my job done.   I didn’t know that there was something else I could do to potentially save money.

Meet my new Snapshot.

You’re probably wondering what in the heck this little device is and how it is going to save me money on car insurance?!

The process is simple and brilliant.  Simply plug Snapshot into the data port on your vehicle.  Obviously this won’t work for every car.  You’ll have to connect with Progressive to see if your car is capable.  It took my husband approximately 1 minute to plug it into our car.   For 30 days this device will grade your driving skills.  Yep, that’s right I said, “grade your driving skills”.  At the end of the 30 days, you will be eligible for a discount on your car insurance based upon your driving.  The better you drive, the better your savings!  And by the way, it is FREE to participate.

Right away my driving grade was an A (I receive updates weekly via email).  I was feeling pretty smug and confident.  I was sure I would easily be able to maintain my elite discount and driving record.  I am accustomed to receiving A’s.  I’m a former teacher after all!  Last week my driving record was demote to a B.   I was concerned, but surely I was just getting accustomed to the process.  Then this week I received my new grade.

Yes, I’m half way through my 30 days and I’m at a B-!  That might as well be an F, as far as I’m concerned.  Yikes!   My problem area?  I have been braking too hard.  Looking at my results page I was able to confirm this, but I already knew as the Snapshot device beeps a couple of times when you brake too suddenly.  Let’s just say, there has been quite a bit of beeping going on in my car lately:)

My only consolation is that my husband drove the car this weekend and I can partially blame him for our low grade.  I’ll take an excuse wherever I can get one:)  Check back soon for a new update on my driving record.  By golly, I’m going to rock this test!!!

Check out this story below for another Day-in-the-Life story.  Darn it!  She is beating me at this point!!!!
