my wife got a home insurance renewal email the other day, said it was going up from around £200 to around £450, which seems ridiculous, especially when putting in our details on their own website quoted around £200 again.
called up to cancel/haggle and they said fine, they’d try and match it. wife was annoyed as they said if they switched me to be the main policyholder it’d bring it down by £40 automatically (could be credit history related as mine is good and hers is non-existent?), but to match the £200 they needed approval and they’d call back on Monday to confirm they had it. they didn’t call back.
called up on Wednesday to ask wtf was up, they said they’d call back by the end of the day to explain. they didn’t call back.
quite tempted to let this all play out, and then when they eventually get back to me and say “ok cool so happy to renew?” just say no and go with someone else, just to mess with them.
2 hours 14 minutes to go btw…
