i'm talking about a few financial benefits that we've run into this week. and since i'm so excited about them, i'm going to share.
- Garrett's medical insurance through his work - free. amazing in this day and age. it's free to them if they're free, married, or have 23 kids. so of course, we've finally worked out all of the kinks... cancelled my insurance & gotten on his. savings of over $140 a month.
- Allstate and their many wonders with auto insurance. you see their commercials, you get sucked into their caring hands. but do you actually reap their benefits? have you been suckered into lower prices & similar coverage by the "little guys"? well... alls i'm saying is this: we compared our two policies & coverages. then we talked to the peoples. for g funkarelli to join me on my policy - with all of the married discounts, etc - it is only an additional $17 a month more than what my previous policy was. his company - paled in comparison. and they didn't give nearly as good of coverage. so again, another $100 savings per month.
- Verizon. i heart them forever. it didn't hurt that our sales associate dude last night was from chicago, hence a bears fan. i liked him anyway. but we were able to get garrett a new phone using part of their $50 a year credit towards a new phone deal, which NO OTHER PEOPLE DO, (correct me if i'm wrong...) and then we were able to join our plans & get more minutes, plus 10 free numbers to select to call for free all for the price of about $10 less than what my current single girl plan was. for 2 phones. so basically - we're getting one cell phone plan for free each month, but with more minutes & i'll get to talk to my mom and dad for free. always. suck that t-mobile. oh, and - garrett was so taken by his new phone last night that he could barely contain himself. he didn't even watch lost. whoa!
i love the MANY benefits of married life. even if i can barely sleep due to a snoring bed partner.
