MyRate update

Since I signed up for the Progressive MyRate program in August, the little device has been plugged into the Subaru's diagnostic port recording our every move. Today for the first time I uploaded all the data to see what happened, and was really surprised.

First, at this rate we will get 15.7% off our next round of insurance, or about $80. Second, oh the data! The image on the right is the trip home from Valley Grove this weekend. Note the cruise control. You also get to see your number of trips, trip time, average risk level by time, driving time by day/week, average time spent at various speeds, millage, and sudden starts and stops - for every trip. Then it compares your data to the average myrate user, or to a demographic group (see 21-29 year olds at the bottom). Turns out we are actually safe drivers!

Progressive says they don't use the sudden start stop data for your rate though, that is for your own information (and to stalk your kids). The rate itself is based on your millage and what time you drive. They say that the most dangerous time to drive is from 12 am to 4 am, followed by rush hr/night time(4am-9am, 3pm-6m, 9pm-12am), then the rest is low risk.

So, I we get to save money, and get some cool information about when and how we drive. I like it!

Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of you who is interested in getting a loan without collateral, no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans/ schedule, to please contact Mr Mason Diego. You can contact him through his email: diegoloancompany@yahoo.com
