5 quirky ways to save money on auto insurance
Get friendly rates via social media
Who says that spending time on social media is a waste? Businesses, including insurance companies, are working to amass loyal online fans and followers, sometimes by using incentives.
Esurance, an Allstate company, has offered up to 10 percent off auto insurance for customers in Texas and Arizona who "like" the official Esurance Facebook page. The "Like to Save" discount is available to new customers who click the "like" button during the process of obtaining an Esurance quote. If you already "like" the company, you can call to have the discount added to your policy.
Consumers who do not live in the Lone Star or the Grand Canyon states should not despair, because the company might expand its discounts to other Facebook fans.
"We're evaluating extending the discount in other states," says Danny Miller, an Esurance spokesman.
