(CNN)   Walmart to offer auto insurance. That's just what I've always wanted... a policy that fixes my car with cheap Chinese parts installed by an 80-year-old man on welfare because he only makes seven bucks an hour   (money.cnn.com) divider line 179

Be sure to take an import car there, because they have manuals.

The perfect product for those who don't want to have to get all dressed up to get minimum state coverage on the Cavalier from that there highfalutin' Safe Auto or The General.

Sure, Walmart is for complete and total white trash.

And almost every person in America shops there at some point. Funny that way.

FTA:
Wal-Mart will not sell insurance, but its customers can click through a link on walmart.com, or go to autoinsurance.com directly to get competing quotes from several car insurance providers such as Progressive, Esurance and Safeco to choose the policy and price that best fit their needs. Wal-Mart will also promote the service via displays in its stores.

Don't let facts get in the way of a good derp.

Oh my GOD! They're forming a marketing alliance with and providing a link to some other company! This. Will. Change. EVERYTHING!

Just another excuse for a Walmart hate thread on Fark.

At 80, I would think he's on Social Security, not welfare. And it's nice to see seniors stay active.

Your recent jeremiad against the Chevy Cavalier is unwarranted and unfair.

It's an honest car for honest people, best exemplified by the first-person narrator of Bob Seger's seminal ode to American pride, "Like A Rock."

this
every single wm-related thread is chock full of people bashing wm. fine, if you don't like it don't shop there. but there are reasons i and my family shop there...especially since we got a new one in october 2013...it's nicer and better stocked than the nearest target, it's nicer and better lit and smells better than the nearest albertsons, and it's cheaper on 99% of the items that all 3 of these stores sell.

our typical grocery/household shopping outting consists of aldi, walmart, and often sams (mainly for coffee, cheese, and sometimes meats), as well as meat sales at albertsons, because overall they have the best supermarket meats in our price range.

They don't sell insurance per se, they are a middle-man for the insurance companies, and it will just cost you more.  How stupid can some people be?

/Wal-Mart sucks.

You can buy health insurance, dental insurance, car insurance, homeowners insurance, etc. from CostCo :D

Auto insurance is such a racket.. Everyone says they'll beat the next guy.. Reality is by maybe $2-$3 tops.   I pay close to $1,000 a year for basic liability coverage.

I buy sundries like shampoo there.  About once a month.   Sometimes limited groceries (crackers, canned soup).  Some kid's clothing.

I have no idea who the hell buys furniture there, but they have lots of it.  Pure junk.

Hell, I can do it by just posting something on the Internet.

Would we have to go *into* a Walmart to make a claim or otherwise deal with anything?  Because that'd be a deal killer.

'middle-men' don't always add cost to a transaction.  In fact, if they did, they wouldn't really exist.

How old are you?
Are you male or Female?
What citiations and accidents to you have?
Year and make of your car?
Basic liability meaning what? 30/60, 50/100, 100/300?
City you live in?

All of these things matter.

Yeah, see, that's the myth. What it costs YOU and what it costs our communities are entirely different things. What we all pay to Wal-Mart (in terms of subsidies for infrastructure, health insurance coverage for their employees, government assistance for their employees, outright tax breaks, outsourcing jobs, etc.) is the true cost.  But hey, enjoy your $10 toaster.

My homeowners insurance is through Liberty Mutual, but I get my policy through Geico, and the policy I get through Geico is about $80 a year cheaper than the cheapest policy I was offered directly from Liberty Mutual.

Don't forget:
How good/bad is your credit?

Which is BS by the way.  Of what value does your credit rating have on insurance?  You pay monthly (or 6 months) and you pay in advance of coverage so even if you don't pay then they drop the coverage and are out nothing.

Ah yes, credit. Forgot about that.

Credit rating is the only "assurance" a big company has at it's disposal to believe you will pay them on time.

Cavaliers got both young Miss Capts from the end of High school through graduating University. They are cheap, reliable, easy to work on (though whoever put the horn where it can only be reached through the wheel well should be flagellated vigourously) and for a long time they were the cheapest cars you could get with ABS brakes. Don't knock the cheap Chevy.

TNel: Which is BS by the way.  Of what value does your credit rating have on insurance?


1) If you continually pay late, they have to continually send out statutory notices of cancellation and notices of reinstatement.  That costs money.
2) Somebody with bad credit (ie no money) is more likely to have their car 'stolen' or their 'oops house burn down'
