The premise is simple. Just talk like a pirate all day on September 19. Need help? You’re in the right place, matey. Some Simple Terms […]

Geocaching with the Gecko (and 5 million others)

By on August 18, 2011 at 7:38 AM

Until a few weeks ago, I’d never heard of geocaching. Someone mentioned in a meeting that GEICO was doing a “Find the Gecko” geocaching promotion, and the idea was met with confused stares. Somehow I had never met one of the 5 million people worldwide who already participate. After a little research, I ended up […]

See that fancy banner at the top of the page? We added it to celebrate our 75-year history. I actually wanted cake and ice cream, but I settled for the banner. Want to learn about how we got to where we are today? Take a road trip that starts from our humble beginnings in 1936 […]

Take the road song trivia quiz

By on April 15, 2011 at 9:53 AM

My first car had a cassette deck. Creating a “road trip playlist” consisted of fishing under the seat or reaching over to the glove box to find the next song. I suppose that qualifies as distracted driving. Not recommended.  Thankfully, now I can sync my music library to my phone and plug it into my […]

The GEICO Blog is now an arcade game

By on April 1, 2011 at 7:17 AM

April Fools’ Day is a day that tolerates practical jokes and general foolishness. And it gives my team a chance to do something extra fun on geico.com. But not every idea makes the cut. Like letting people play the old arcade game Asteroids on the GEICO homepage. Ok, so maybe flying around and destroying everything […]

There’s nothing I hate more than waiting in line. Luckily, some stores – and some roads – have express lanes. Turns out, our friends on the GEICO Service team agree, and they’ve come up with an auto insurance express lane for policyholders! They call it GEICO Express. It’s perfect for those times when you want […]
