When Steven Hsu, a software engineer in New York City, read on a technology website about saving money on car insurance with Gabi, he was intrigued.
“Gabi seemed legit and easy to use, and there was no obligation to switch to a new insurance company,” he says. “I thought, ‘Why not give it a try?’”
After Hsu entered his current insurance policy information into the Gabi tool, Gabi located a different policy that would provide the same coverage for significantly less money: With the new policy, he would save about $700 per year.
Curious about why one company could offer the same coverage for so much less, Hsu did a little digging. He learned that a car accident he’d had several years ago was still inflating his rate with his current insurance company. But because the accident was more than five years ago, it didn’t appear on his driving record when the new company calculated his rate.
“I tried to contact my previous insurer to see if they would lower the rate since my accident had passed the five-year mark, but they wouldn’t lower their rate,” Hsu says. As a result, he made the switch and is now saving about $700 per year on car insurance.
Rewarded for Sharing
Hsu’s rewards for using Gabi didn’t stop with his insurance savings. He was so pleased with his Gabi experience that he quickly referred a co-worker to the site.
“Every Gabi account has a unique referral code to make it easy to refer others,” Hsu says. “I sent my co-worker a text message with the link to sign up.” The co-worker signed up with Gabi using Hsu’s code and also switched his insurance, so Hsu will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
“It was very easy and it’s a great reward,” Hsu says. “I will absolutely recommend other people if I know anyone else who wants to save money on their insurance.”
