    I received 270 from intact, which was nice even though I just renewed in March

    Jesus so I guess that wasn't spam? Huh, I'll look for it.

    EDIT: Wait, so you log in, and click one button, and that's it? I feel like they would want more details, wouldn't they??

    I wouldn't have known about this if it wasn't for this thread. Beyond.ca to the rescue.

    Mine was denied, because it doesn't apply to motorcycle insurance, which makes sense, but I figured I'd still try.

    I didn't get an email, I just logged on to see why my rates went down, and then up just before renewal, and it was on the first page.

    I don't know anything about this but enough of you guys have my email address, forward me one of these notices and I'll look into it. My initial thoughts...there's no free lunch, there's a catch somewhere.

    Okay kids, so after some investigation I'm prepared to make a statement on this. I'm going to quote something I sent to another Beyonder this morning:

    "Truthfully I don’t know what the angle is but I can promise you that from working with Intact (and really all insurance companies) for more than two decades now, they don’t do ANYTHING without an angle that works in their favour somewhere at some point. I have my suspicions as to what’s going on but nothing I’m willing to put in writing. For the time being, Intact has had their hand slapped by regulators for this stunt but I guess take the money? Because they initiated contact I can’t see how coverage would be an issue now or down the road but I suspect this will come back around at some point."

    Remember, by saying yes to this you are stating in writing that your day to day driving behaviour is fundamentally different than what your policy is rated for. If you're already rated for pleasure only (working from home) as a lot of policies are, have your driving habits truly changed in the recent past or are you already receiving a discounted rate for that reality? If you're working from home but being rated for commuting are you okay with being bought off for a one time credit or perhaps you should review your policy with your broker and take the lower rate on an ongoing basis, not just once?

    I have to be careful with how much I say about this as there are other factors at play on my end that should be kept to myself. I will say however that when the world un-fucks itself and we can go back to the consumption of libations in a public setting with whomever we choose, I may very well be persuaded to speak openly and uncensored about my true thoughts on the matter for a simple bribe of a beverage or plate of wings.

    I dropped Intact for RBC/Aviva because my premium went 100% on renewal; Aviva halved it back to usual.

    Interesting they'd do that. I remember receiving a letter from them about my home insurance policy changing due to COVID. When you received the letter/email to get COVID relief, did you have to acknowledge or click saying 'I agree'? That's the equivalent of a signature

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    My insurance right now is basically paying to protect from driveway theft.
    I'm already on the low end of kms used and I don't think they'd go for an avg of 50km a month usage.

    If I blessed your marriage, can I have the inside scoop?
