Well, it might have been because I wasn’t working at GEICO yet. I’m not exactly sure when this photo was shot, but […]

By on January 27, 2014 at 2:21 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This one really speaks to me. You see, in a former life, during my two-year “sabbatical” from college during my freshman year, one of the jobs I had was as a security guard. I WAS this guy for […]

How well does your car retain its value?

By on January 6, 2014 at 8:55 AM

It’s common knowledge (and a little disheartening) that as soon as you purchase a new car it depreciates by thousands of dollars as soon as you drive it off the dealership lot. But which cars depreciate the least? For 50 years, ALG has been the industry benchmark for calculating residual values on vehicles. ALG recently […]

13 songs you won’t hear on the radio this holiday season

By on December 23, 2013 at 9:51 AM

When I was in college, I worked at a restaurant that had a holiday playlist of about 10 songs that was on repeat from Thanksgiving until Christmas.

Memory of the Month: Giving thanks

By on November 27, 2013 at 3:31 PM

Kids, you won’t believe this, but once upon a time, televisions did not have flat screens, and if you wanted to change the channel, you had to get up and walk to the TV to do it. The only time the words “high definition” went together was when you were looking up the word “high” […]
