My husband will be proud of his business-savvy wife! I called to get the windshield fixed and got an estimate of $394. The man said that windshield must've been made of solid gold; it's the most expensive one he's ever seen. I called a couple other places, and his was the best price. Then, on a hunch, I called our car insurance company and asked them if they'd cover it. They don't, but they found a place to do it for $318. So I called back the original place to cancel my appointment, and they said they wanted my business and would beat the other offer and do it for $300.
So, I saved a hundred bucks! Funny how I feel excited about spending $300 but saving $100.
One gremlin down...

If you don't have USAA insurance, you should look at it carefully. It's always #1 or 2 in value in customer satisfaction and value. We've had it for 31 years. I reported 2 chips that occurred on a trip to the mountains a few days ago, they told me that chips are fixed for free, windshield replaced for $100 deductible if needed. Chips were repaired with a "lifetime" warranty (as long as we own our car)in our driveway. Good for you in saving $100 though!

If you have AAA they have a service where they'll literally come to your house and replace any windshield for something like $150. I am not sure of the details, but its worth looking into!
