Many of us love to travel but that requires purchasing an often-expensive ticket with one of many airlines or becoming loyal to a select few will allow you to earn airline miles and fly for free! We've all seen the clever commercials and heard the witty jingles for car insurance and while they may be slightly entertaining (I cringe when I say that) it's fair to say that none of us are in a love-love relationship with our insurance provider. For the majority of my mandatory-pay-for-car-insurance life, I thought I was insured with and by the caveman and gecko gods. I mean, not only was was I receiving a nice Social Orgainization discount via my college fraternity, how could you not trust that Cockney accent? I was paying around $150-$150 monthly for the basic level of insurance with a couple of extras. One day in the breakroom I preparing my greens and gout-filled steak fillets from the night before and overheard some coworkers discussing their low insurnace rates. I realized I had been overpaying compared to everyone else! Thus, one had to butt in and inquire :) As soon as I had the information, I made the request to the referred agent and I was set up with better coverage AND was paying $50+ less a month! Winnning.... Happy and living on Cloud 9 for a few months, I received an email from one of my preferred carriers, United Airlines regarding switching my car insurance to receive airline miles. If you know me at all, I love miles!! Especially when I don't have to open a line of credit or buy something I don't need. Even though I was satisfied with my crazy-new low-rate, I had to see what California Casualty could really do for me. I had assumed I would be paying more when in reality, I received yet again, BETTER coverage AND a lower rate of about $6 PLUS receiving 20,000 airline miles!! If you want to fly somewhere for the first time or already use United Airlines or any of the Star Alliance brands I would first ensure you have a United Mileage Plus account set up (how you receive miles) and then head over to California Casualty and see what is possible for you!
