Remember:
A good agent will look for every credit available to you but they can’t discount what they don’t know about you so mention them all.
Not all insurance carriers offer all discounts.
The more credits you load on top of each other, the less effect the last discount has on your premium.  “It’s a math thing” but still, the more discounts the better.
