Esurance and Walmart Team Up for Auto Insurance Discount Program

March 22, 2013

Esurance is launching a pilot program offering auto insurance discounts to customers at select Walmart stores in Illinois.

Through the pilot program, drivers may obtain a savings card from Esurance kiosks located in approximately 150 Walmart stores in the state. The cards contain special codes that customers can use to get a discount on their car insurance.

Walmart is providing space for the Esurance kiosks but no auto insurance is being sold in the stores either by Walmart or Esurance, according to a statement issued by Esurance.

Allstate, the parent company of Esurance, is not involved in the promotion.

Customers who obtain a card may call the toll-free number to speak with a licensed Esurance agent or they may go online, fill out an application and get a quote. In both cases, they will need to provide the savings code and answer a few underwriting questions to receive their discounted quote.

Customers may also send a text message to a dedicated number to get the special savings code.

The pilot program currently has no end date.

Esurance said the program is aimed at “complementing its existing sales channels and introducing Esurance products to the broadest possible audience.”
