I don’t have a fancy car, I don’t put a ton of miles on the car (he says a week or two before he drives to Buffalo, NY) and I am the kind of person who likes to save money and test new devices.
When I saw that the Snapshot device was available from Progressive in Pennsylvania I quickly signed up. My Snapshot device has been shipped and I’m quite excited to see it.
Check this out…
How does Snapshot work? (according to Progressive)
- Enroll online.
We’ll send you a Snapshot device.
- Plug in and drive.
Once you get your Snapshot device in the mail, simply plug it in to your car by following the instructions that come with it. Then, drive safely to maximize your possible savings.
- See if you can save.
Log in to your policy to see whether your driving will save you money. If it will, your initial discount will take effect automatically. Either way, keep the device plugged in to see if you can earn a discount when you renew. We’ll let you know when you can unplug and return the device.
I normally don’t drive more than 30 miles per day. I don’t drive between midnight and 4am. I’d like to think that I’m a somewhat decent driver.
It’ll be interesting to see if Progressive Insurance can cut my rate with this new technology. It’ll be even more interesting to see what my car reports back to Progressive and how it reports it.
