I just finished my month-long participation in the Snapshot Test Drive Program from Progressive…

Unfortunately, despite the fair rates being offered by Progressive auto insurance, they weren’t able to offer me a lower rate than I am currently paying with Chris’s old military automobile insurance.

But that doesn’t mean that you might not be able to save a bundle, why not try out the new Snapshot Test Drive Program?

So what exactly is the Snapshot Test Drive Program?

As a new way to estimate savings on auto insurance with Progressive, you can simply snap in the Snapshot into your diagnostics center on your car. I found mine under my steering wheel but yours may be hidden behind a cover. You can find it in your user’s manual if it isn’t obvious to you.

It monitors what time of day you drive, how often you accelerate quickly, and how often you hit your brakes – hard.

Spoiler alert: I hit my brakes hard ALL THE TIME. Because I live in Miami, where defensive driving is 99.8% of driving.

I have a feeling that I would have saved a lot more on Progressive if I didn’t have to be such a defensive driver in Miami. But that’s just part of Miami life – insane traffic!

I did all kinds of things while using the Snapshot Test Drive program, like grocery shopping, visiting the Humane Society to pick up and drop off foster kittens…and go to the airport…A LOT.

I dropped off and picked up my husband twice, and I went on two trips of my own! That crazy airport traffic is no joke, y’all!

If you’re looking to save a bundle on your auto insurance, you should check out the Snapshot Test Drive program from Progressive!

 

I received a promotion item to thank me for sharing my experience, but all opinions are my own.

    Oh, I’ve wanted to try this out and find out more about it! I drive over 100 miles a day just taking my son to and from school and we would love to save where ever we can!

    I wonder if the discount from Snapshot would get us a better rate… hard to say. Milwaukee traffic is not fun but it’s nothing like Miami or LA! I had no idea you could do a 30 day free trial if you weren’t with them so that’s good to know!
