Geico Insurance

Hey guys, I have been enjoying BFs for a while. I don't normally post these kind of threads but I couldn't help to do so today. I work for Geico Insurance. The company is having a contest for it's employees to see who can get the most Insurance Rate Quote Referrals. We get various prizes for the number of referrals that we give. All the rate quotes are free and take about 5 minutes to get. If you call in and get a quote, you don't have to sign up for a policy. The only requirement for the contest is that I refer someone to a rate quote. Here's the thing: I just need some you guys to call in to GEICO at 800-342-9070 and when you get the quote, mention the Promotional Code: 130552. Again, you don't have to actually sign up for a policy, just a quote with that promotional code.

Thanks to all of you who help me out!
JD

Believe it or not, I don't even get Geckos or Cavemen stuff. We have to buy all that. If we get a service award or something, they sometimes give out a Gecko bobblehead trophy.

Don't they slap your credit report with an inquiry even if you just want a quote?

Ohnozes, lizard people!

Geico is the devil spawn... Softening the minds of the world for the take over of the lizard race!

What office does he work at? I am in the Region 3 office in Macon, Ga. We rarely get those things. But I work in claims. The sales department gets that stuff sometimes. Every time I have asked for something, they tell me to go online and buy it

If you don't want them to send any promotional offers, let them know and you won't get it.

He works in the Philly, PA and DC region. And I think he is in Sales - not sure. I don't ask, since I am a State Farm guy. Maybe I'll sneak some of the stuff out, and send it to you. Lord knows we could use the space!

I used to work in the Reg IV office in San Diego as an Insurance Underwriter with wife who worked in Service Dept. That was several years ago. I worked with Tennye who I believed moved to Reg III. If you know her or have a chance to pass on a message to her, please let her know Richard and Lisa say hi and hope she's doing well.

Sure thing. I'll look her name up tomorrow and send a message.

Pass. Last time I compared quotes, Geico was 30% more expensive than what I have.
