It's happened to many of us. We're watching television, listening to the radio, flipping through the pages of the newspaper, when suddenly we see an advertisement for an insurance company. Maybe they specialize in health insurance, or maybe it's life insurance. Sometimes auto insurance is their focus, or they're known for their great homeowner's insurance policies. Whatever kind of insurance it is, the advertisement catches our eyes, and before we know it, we're visiting the insurance company's web site, or on the phone with one of their insurance agents, finding out how they can save us money if we cancel our current insurance policies and purchase our new insurance policies from them.
It all sounds so good, but as we're walking away from our computers, or hanging up the telephone receivers, we can not help but wonder: does this mean we're cheating on our current insurance companies?
Well, yes it does. But that's alright, because unlike in the world of romantic relationships, cheating on your insurance providers is perfectly acceptable. Why? Because it may save you loads of money in the long run. Keeping your bank account healthy and happy is much more important than remaining in an expensive relationship with your current insurance company, is not it?
Just because you and your insurance agent are on a first name basis does not mean you have to remain loyal to that insurance company. Just because your husband plays golf with your insurance agent does not mean you have to keep paying outrageous insurance rates. You are entitled to better insurance rates, and if it means cheating on, and ultimately ending the relationship with, your current insurance provider, then so be it.
Remember, when temptation calls, do not ignore it. Pick up the phone, turn on the computer, or even drive to the nearest insurance agent who represents the new insurance company. Cheating on your current insurance provider simply means you are interested in saving money.
