If your car insurance provider is like mine, there are lots of hidden discounts available just for working in certain industries, being a member of certain groups, or even subscribing to the right publications. In some cases it’s their way to reward you for being a member of a statistically safer demographic (e.g. AAA has a significant policy discount for teachers), but other times it’s just a marketing arrangement. In my case, I noticed that members of the National Geographic Society (i.e. anyone who subscribes to the excellent magazine) get a $26 per year discount on Geico policies. Since National Geographic subscriptions are only $15 per year at Amazon, that’s an effective $11 profit for receiving a magazine that you’ll actually like. And yes, it’s okay if you only look at the pictures.
