Birthday Blogging: The Perks of Age Edition

Hi everyone.  If the title didn’t give it away, today is my birthday.  This twenty something is half way to thirty something.  On February 4, 1985 at 9:02am central time, I was born.  On February 4, 2010, I am excited to take advantage of the last birthday that comes with something new.

My car insurance, as a 24 year old guy, was about $125 per month.  That is a lot of money.  Even with good grade discounts and a good driving record, it is expensive to drive if you are a guy between 16 and 24.  At twenty five, I am magically less likely to cause an accident.  That means cheaper car insurance.

I ran through a quote program online last week and found that most insurance companies will lower my rate by over 30%.  I will probably find something around $80 per month.  That is a $45 per month, or $540 per year, in savings.  That is a weekend vacation to the mountains in savings.

The only other perk of turning 25 is also car related.  I can now easily find a rental car anywhere in the United States without paying extra fees for my age.  Pretty sweet, huh?

What do I have to look forward to from here?  Wrinkles?  At least I know that many women think men look better with age.  I am going for the Anderson Cooper or George Clooney look.  Girls think they are attractive, right?

(P.S. I didn’t pick the Progressive girl from the ads for any particular reason.  I just like her commercials better than the Gecko from Geico.  I have a different insurance company.)
