Discounts, Rewards, and Promotions
Insurance brands often run some sort of deal or promotion. These can range from basic multipolicy discounts, which are sort of expected, to huge giveaways during certain months of the year.
Our general approach is to choose our insurance brand based on the policy and the price. Sure, a $50 Prezzy Card might be a nice incentive to switch, but do you really want to move to a less trusted insurance company so you can treat yourself to a fancy dinner? When you house burns down, you may wish you weren’t tempted!
Insurance companies have been known to give away all sorts of stuff to get you to switch to them. Gift cards, books, crappy phones, toys, stress balls, blenders, flights, BBQ’s and more. So if this sort of thing floats your boat, the brands most likely to have a deal on are listed below in our first section.
Since we don’t have the time to check these sites every week, spend 20 seconds loading them each up and checking if they have a promotion. If they do, you’ll find it quite quickly on their Homepage. When they have something to giveaway, they make sure you can find it easy!
Rewards (Flybuys / Airpoints)
Many insurance companies in NZ offer an online discount if you quote and buy online. Depending on the product, you’ll save between $10 and $50. You’ll typically find that you’ll save more on comprehensive policies, such as comprehensive car insurance. I’ve always thought they were a bit sneaky, as surely the phone prices and just jacked up by $10 to $50 dollars? Who knows? Maybe I’m just a sceptic!
