4/30 | Drive Smarter, Not Harder

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. I purchased my own insurance at normal prices. All opinions are 100% mine.

Nationwide provided me with information regarding its SmartRide program.

Everyone likes simplicity. Everyone likes things that are uncomplicated, and easy to understand. The problem is, most of the time when we are introduced to experiences or products that we know very little or nothing about, we tend to over complicate them, and they become hard to understand properly. That was not the case with Nationwide’s SmartRide program, it was very simple.  It’s an amazing program designed for you to reward drivers for their good driving habits by giving them an opportunity to earn a discount on their auto insurance! Now, if that was all you knew about the program you would definitely be weary of how complicated it seems, right? Not to worry, it is actually one of the simplest devices I’ve ever had, and it has given my parents and I an opportunity to save so much money!

It is as simple as installing the small device into your car, and saving as you drive with your instant discount just for participating in the program. The device tracks your driving habits like your fast acceleration and hard breaking, and it even helps us understand the areas in driving that we can improve to drive safer and more efficiently with our personalized coaching and feedback from the company! We have learned habits through the program that we will use forever!  For example, I learned that I was braking too hard too fast, and getting that feedback has allowed me to drive safer and has helped to correct my driving mistakes for the future. The best part, your rates will not increase as a result of participating in SmartRide. Not only that, but just signing up will save you an instant 10%, with a possible savings of up to 40%, depending on your driving trends.

By participating in the SmartRide program me and my whole family have learned better driving habits, and the simplicity of the program has made a big difference in how we see our auto insurance.

When the 6 months were over I got an email from Nationwide about my participation in the program, stating that I had earned a final discount of 26%! Then I knew I needed to unplug the device and send it back in the convenient package with a postage-paid label that contained the device at the start of the program.

Stop paying too much for car insurance, with the potential to get rewarded for safe driving, like me and my family, thanks to the program. If you are a Nationwide customer and want to enroll simply call your agent! New customers can get a quote and sign up for SmartRide easily during the quote process.

Nationwide asked that I include this information about the product: Products underwritten by Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company and Affiliates. Columbus, Ohio. Availability varies. Discounts do not apply to all coverage elements; actual savings vary by state, coverage selections, rating factors and policy changes. Enrollment discount applies during data collection; final discount is calculated on driving behavior and could be zero. Final discount applies at the next policy renewal and remains until drivers or vehicles on the policy change.
