Both companies have been in the insurance industry for a long time and have solid reputations. When comparing discounts, remember to keep your personal situation in mind. The company that offers the most discounts won’t necessarily be the best choice for you. It’s the one that has the most discounts that apply to you that will provide the most cost savings.
Also keep in mind that American Family only provides insurance in 19 states. If you don’t live in one of those states, it’s not even an option for you.
