I came across this opportunity while looking at my news feed and it appeared to be a news story about a local business doing awesome things for the insurance industry. I quickly glanced at the article and clicked the link to get an insurance quote. After providing all of my information and clicking the "Get My Quote" link, I was given two buttons, "Get My Quote," from their insurance partners.
One was for Allstate and the other was for State Farm. Neither button provided me with an actual quote but simply links to enter my information again to obtain a quote from each of those respective partners. What a waste of time.
In my opinion, this is a scam to collect your information so that EverQuote and their "Partners" can fill your inbox, mailbox, and phone with unsolicited garbage related to insurance products that you really weren't looking for in the first place.
I simply saw an opportunity to support local business ventures and was fooled by big business scammers into providing my information they already have. Don't waste your time and energy filling out this fake request for a quote. If you're looking for an insurance quote, do so with a reputable company or better yet with a local agent that will take care of you personally.
Definitely, buyer beware!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
