It's been six weeks since requesting a quote from Hartford and still no duffel bag??

Is there someone here who can tell me how to check on receiving the duffel bag advertised in the Hartford Insurance ad in AARP magazine for requesting an insurance quote?? Please advise and thanks in advance.

It continues 10/10/23!  How on earth does AARP support the mailer and flyer. Seriously. The Hartford must be paying AARP ALL THE SUPPOSED SAVINGS WE SHOULD RECEIVE AS SAFE DRIVERS MY QUOTE WAS NO DIFFERENT THAN CURRENT!

Hartford Insurance, which YOU recommend, is my auto insurance carrier. I tried to get rental insurance and they cancelled me because I applied 3 days ago. Evidently, the apt I live in had a theft report 5 years ago (as of yesterday) and I applied and was cancelled! I’ve lived here 2.5 yrs and have had no problems or reports on any of my insurance policies. This is TOTALLY unacceptable and a NEGATIVE report is necessary to all the AARP members! I’m very, VERY dissatisfied with Hartford INSURANCE anyway you can say it…

Hi @crsilver3! I am sorry to hear about your rental insurance cancellation. Were you applying for rental insurance and were denied? If so, was the reason for the denial based on the theft report? If not, were you provided with a reason?

I have my auto insurance with Hartford, so I've been getting a lot of emails that I should bundle my rental insurance for extra savings.  OK, I tried. I called on about 10/12/2023 to add rental insurance.  The lady total me that the apt had a theft claim 5 years ago but it would expire on Oct 15th, so apply then.  When I applied on Oct 16th the agent said I WAS DENIED ON OCT 12TH SO I COULDN'T APPLY FOR ANOTHER YEAR!  I couldn't believe it, I didn't really get denied because I was told not to apply until after the 15th!  Anyway, the theft didn't have anything to do with me as I have lived here for about 2.5 yrs, so I had no idea of any problems (it's a gated apt).  I've never had a claim on anything, so I feel I was treated very, very unfairly.  Needless to say, I have a very poor opinion of Hartford Insurance and ALL AARP members should be warned.  It's just that simple.

THANK YOU I RECEIVED THE HARTFORD OFFER DUFFEL BAG!  It is adorable mini and useful. I spotted an email a few weeks back saying to reply to it for the duffel bag and it arrived yesterday. And bag aside I am seriously considering trying The Hartford for my insurance needs. Thanks again!

Grateful,

Michele

They're still running the scam in 2022. About all my inquiry received was a slew of spamming calls and emails for auto insurance and NO sign of weekend duffle bag promised in promotion.

Call AARP and tell them you called Hartford for a quote and they never sent the bag. They'll contact Hartford and have them send it. At least that's what worked for me.

I finally rec'd mine after 8 weeks.  It's much smaller than the picture leads you to believe.  It's only 13"x6"x9".  And the material is thin, too.  Not impressed. ☹️

I had to make an additional phone call or 2 to get mine. It finally arrived. I agree about the size, too small to call a duffel bag. They should call it something else.

BS.  I tried many times.  It's a scam. Sad to see that AARP promotes the scam. 

 

For the record, I dropped Hartford for Liberty Mutual and will probably drop AARP.

I am wondering if you ever got your duffel bag.  I went through the quote process and the Hartford price was considerably higher than I am now paying.  Oh well, at least I would get the duffel bag for my time.

 

They say it can take up to 7 weeks for delivery.  I contacted them at 7 weeks and they say things are delayed due to Covid and I sould allow 2 more weeks. 

 

End of 2 weeks and I contact them again.  They are sorry and will order the duffel bag to be sent out to me again...  can take up to 7 weeks. 

 

I am now waiting the 7 weeks. 

 

Did you ever get the duffel bag?

 

Thanks.

I got mine after going through far more trouble than it's worth. It's not a duffel bag, it's a tiny replica of a duffel bag. If you ever get it, you can put it out someplace where it can be easily seen as a reminder of the integrity level of Hartford and AARP.

After more than a year, maybe more than two years, of getting mail that says I'll get a duffel bag if I request a quote, I finally called yesterday. After getting the quote, I asked about the bag. She said she'd send me an email with a link to where I request the bag. I waited over an hour for the email, then called back. I was told that it takes 24 to 36 hours to send the email. Are you kidding me??? Well, now it's been 29 hours and no such email. How on earth can it take so long to send an email? This is very sleazy, and reflects badly on the kind of company you are. Why would I get insurance from a company that won't even send a duffel bag it promised to, and can't even send an email in less than 36 hours, if you'll even send it then? Why should I think you would expeditiously process a claim, when you can't even send an email? And why do we even need to go through all the email crap anyway? You have my address, just send the **bleep** bag.

Why do you need all that info? Hartford should have a record of who called, and who they haven't sent a bag to. Just tell them to send the bags. AARP is the one sending out the letters falsely claiming we'll get a bag if we call, so take a little responsibility and make it happen.

The information provided is not false. We'd be glad to make it happen, but will have no way of doing so without the necessary information. The Hartford does not keep a list of whom duffel bag offers went out to - the offer is sent to all members. If you'd like us to reach out to The Hartford and get this taken care of for you, please submit a help form and we'll get right on it. Thanks!
