Why you should shop insurance...
Insurance is one of few things we buy that we hope we'll never use. But since protecting your life, health and money is important, it's a necessary evil.
What's not necessary, however, is paying too much for it.
The average American spends close to 8 cents of every dollar they make on a plethora of policies designed to keep them from the poorhouse in the event of accident, illness or injury. Many of those Americans are paying too much.
Paying less involves three simple steps:
- Understanding exactly what you're paying for.
- Buying the minimum necessary.
- Shopping your policies early and often.
When it comes to understanding all kinds of insurance, we've got plenty of articles in our insurance category that will help.

And when it comes to shopping insurance plans, we've got the tool below to help you compare quotes from various companies on home, health, life, car and motorcycle insurance. Our quotes don't include every possible company - nobody's does. But periodically using this tool will at least allow you to compare prices from some major companies to insure that when it comes to insurance, you're not wasting money.
