I do not recommend Allstate Insurance. When I called to cancel my policy recently, I was immediately harassed by the agent I called for not calling to see what they could do to make my policy cheaper. She immediately told me that she could save me over $100 just by taking off the Platinum Coverage even though I told her I did want her to give me a quote. The Platinum Coverage gives me a Safe Driving Bonus check of 25-40 dollars every 6 months and buys down my deductible. Why would I pay over $100 to get 30 back every 6 months and to buy down my deductible b/c whenever I needed to use my deductible, I would no longer get safe driving bonus. Basically I am paying down my deductible myself even though I may not even ever need to use it. Plus if they are suppose to be my agent, why would they not contact me to try to keep my business instead of just raising my rates every 6 months drastically to the point where I have to look elsewhere. What happened to customer service! I guess I am getting old. Then to top it off, I got a bill for $4.82 b/c they were taking back the safe driving bonus that I had earned from the previous 6 months. This is a slap in the face. I cancelled early so I should have received a small refund which I would have not cared if I ever got but since they had sent me a safe driving bonus check of $38, I owe them. I was getting back 33.18 for cancelling early but I owed the $38 back for the safe driving bonus check I had received. When I called to find out why I was being billed $4.82, they explained that the Safe Driving Bonus is paid ahead for the upcoming 6 months. So I paid the extra $100 plus for them to take $38 Safe Driving Bonus check I earned away from me. The Platinum coverage is a RACKET. Don't get it!

I'm so sick of them. I've been with them for years and never made a claim. One of the things I've been annoyed about was how they post on my account the homeowner's insurance that doesn't start for 2 months, so my bill never reaches 0 since I pay installments. Worse, when I complained about that, they claim that it's not on the paper bill so I shouldn't be upset about it, completely ignoring the fact that I don't even look at the paper bill. Who does anymore? But NOW the first installment is due a month early and they are charging me an installment fee for THAT! An installment fee is one thing, but it shouldn't be even on the first payment. This is purely and simply gouging because they can. I'm switching and already paid for an auto insurance policy with someone else that I was going to set up with them.

Things change over time, bro. Credit improves, tickets fall off, at-fault accidents fall off... GEICO isn't going to drastically lower your rate because this information changed. When you got them, your "floor" was set pretty high, close to that $1000 price. Now that time has gone along, and the information has changed, Allstate can give you a price based upon the new information when GEICO can't. It's the nature of the business, and unless you're super loyal to GEICO, make the switch. I would drop the Comprehensive Deductible to $0 with Allstate, though.
