The best ways to save money if you can afford it are to go with a higher deductible $1000 or more) and a lot of companies offer a decent discount (10% or more) for paying the entire year up front.

I have Erie now but had State Farm for years. Ultimately there are so many factors. To insure about 60k worth of cars (current value), I pay about $1200 per year. But I also have homeowners insurance through Erie too and they give a big discount for that

Sometimes location drives up premiums so it may not be in your control. The vehicle also matters - make model and age = luxury, sports are higher. Not sure it applies to you but if you've held a US license for less than 5 years premiums can be higher. Could be worth trying other insurers - I always shop around every six months.

Part of your insurance is based on their cost to repair/ replace. If you haven’t noticed, car prices are through the roof lately.

Costco had a great auto insurance plan for executive members - they gave me the best price after an at fault accident. Prior to that, GEICO had the best price for me until I had my accident. East Coast- HCOL area. Get a cheaper quote and then ask your current company to match or switch.

You can do it via the websites for those companies you see in media. I asked my friends who they use and found a broker who set us up with a great rate.

Is there any insurance comparison site you guys used?

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
