Paying bills is a chore than no one likes doing, but at Allstate we have several different options that can make life a little easier for you.

Local Agency

This is probably obvious, but are you aware that we take several different types of payments including cash, check and credit card? We even accept American Express. The great thing about paying your bill in the agency is that the payment gets applied immediately and we give you a receipt if you want one. In addition, you can make your payment at any Allstate agency if a different location is more convenient. Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. However, if you stop by during non-business hours, we have a payment slot that you can drop your payment in and it will be applied to your account the next business day. We will also call you to let you know we received your payment.

Telephone

We can accept payments over the phone several different ways. Most people like to use their debit or credit cards, which are a great way to pay your bill because you get an immediate confirmation number. We can also take payment with an Electronic Check or E-check. All we need is your routing and checking account numbers to process the payment. Our agency phone number is (360) 452-9200 or toll free (866) 452-9200

Computer

I know nights and weekends can be the best times to get things done. You can visit Allstate.com/mattelwood 24/7 and sign up for My Account via the customer log-in. Just follow the three simple steps to set up your account. You can access your account immediately upon completing registration. Not only can you pay your bill there, but also view your policy information, sign up for paperless billing, file or check the status of claim and much more.

Easy Pay

This isn’t for everyone, but some people like to put things on auto-pilot. We can set up your account on easy pay so the payment comes out of your checking account automatically every month or on recurring credit card. You will still get notification via email from Allstate as a helpful reminder before the draft occurs each month. I use this option myself and I really like it.

Please keep all these options in mind next time you are paying bills and most importantly, thank you for being an Allstate customer!

Saving money on your car insurance

Being single definitely has its financial advantages, but you may be missing out on some car insurance discounts that your married friends currently enjoy. Here are 3 discounts that you can take advantage of on your own.

Premier Plus Discount

The Premier Plus discount is available to you for being accident free for the past 5 years as well as maintaining prior insurance with a standard carrier for the past 3 years. The lesson here is that being a responsible driver and maintaining your insurance with no lapses in coverage is a smart thing to do. The amount of discount varies with your rating group and coverage type.

Good Payer Discount

The Good Payer discount is definitely one to take advantage of. This discount gives you 5% for paying your bills on time. In the state of Washington that is defined as having no cancellation bills sent to you in the past 12 months. It may vary from state to state so check with you agent.

EZ Pay Discount

Here is another easy one. The EZ Pay discount is another 5% if you elect to pay via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) at the time you buy your policy. However, if you remove the EFT, the discount will be removed at your next policy removal.

These are just a few of the discounts available on your auto insurance. Next time you speak with your agent, make sure you are getting all the possible discounts you qualify for. If you would like a free car insurance quote along with a review of your discounts, please contact me at 360-452-9200

Auto Insurance Discounts For Baby Boomers

Couple after getting all their car insurance discounts

Are you on a fixed budget? Many Baby Boomers are and at the same time, getting squeezed by the economy. One thing you can do is review your car insurance to make sure you are getting all the discounts you are eligible for. There are several that exist, but here are three big discounts to ask your agent about.

55 and Retired Discount

This is a great discount if you are no longer working and over the age of 55. Allstate offers 10% for this discount in their preferred auto line. Not all coverages are discounted, but the major ones are like liability, property damage, comprehensive and collision. No drivers under the age of 25 allowed on the policy to receive the discount.

Defensive Driver Discount

Drivers who are 55 years of age and older who successfully complete an accident prevention course approved by the Washington Department of Licensing can receive a 5% discount on their auto insurance. The discount is good for 2 years after which you must successfully retake the course to continue to receive the discount. Here is a link to sign up for a course near you in Washington State. http://www.dmv.org/wa-washington/defensive-driving.php

Full-Pay Discount

Not everyone has the cash flow to pay their premiums in full, but if you can budget the money in order to save the necessary premium it can be worth it. The Full-Pay Discount is 10% on select coverage on Allstate’s Washington preferred auto line. If you can do this now, take advantage. If not, start saving for the next renewal period!

These are just a few of the discounts available on your auto insurance. Next time you speak with your agent, make sure you are getting all the possible discounts you qualify for. If you would like a free car insurance quote along with a review of your discounts, please contact me at 360-452-9200
