-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"

1. Washington Times Op-ed--Let's Smarten up on Teen Rebellion
