    Insurance commercials on TV

    My wife and I don't watch many TV shows but it's usually on as background white noise. I noticed several years ago that the insurance companies really ramped up TV advertising....kind of reminded me of the TV advertising during the long distance telephone company wars during the 1980's. I assumed the insurance TV commercials would fade away but there's simply no end. And, the themes are increasingly goofy.

    I suppose insurance is an exceptionally lucrative business that's attracted a lot of competition....but these nutty commercials make it easy to power off the TV.

    In all of 2015, I think I watched less than 20 hours of TV. I can't stand all of the commercials and most of the shows just plain stink. I do like Football, and watch when I can, but normally only during the playoffs.

    I used to like the geico ones, until progressive came along with flo, now liberty has a good one where their standing bawling about their new car all smashed up cause they didn't take any gap ins. out on it, and it got totaled and they won't completely pay it off. I've heard flo and progressive spent the most money advertising out their.

    Just remember , all the commercials mean one thing, HIGHER rates. Doesn't matter home or auto, check the smaller companies get the ones with good ratings and you can same your self a LOT of money. At least I was able to have had one claim and no questions asked and no higher rate.

    Hiya,

    It started with Esurance and AFLAC. Both of those agencies were leaders in Internet insurance and now companies need to keep their name in the minds of customers when they go online for insurance.

    I wonder what's really going on with these insurance companies. I took out Allstate insurance when I bought my house, in 1972 and also covered all of my vehicles. A couple years ago, some gal from Allstate came out, took pictures of the house...got a letter a few weeks later, saying that if I didn't trim my trees and replace my roof they were going to drop me...after 40 or so years! I told them that if that's the way they treat their customers, they could stick it where the sun doesn't shine. Went with an independent agent; got more coverage, cheaper.

    2lanecruzer; nationwide did that sort of thing maybe 20 some yrs ago, checking every ones homes for safety things that hadn't been looked at in say yrs. and yes they took pics too. my family on my dads side has been with nationwide since the 40's. me-I've been with them since 1976-too long, but kinda scarced to change over.

    Allstate= A-holes and crooks. Same experience here. That company has as much integrity as a dog in heat. My story is worse than yours but I haven't taken my blood pressure meds yet so I can't get into it yet. Did I say they were A-holes?

    When they were owned by Sears, they were a good company. I think they have been independent for about 20 years and have evolved into something else.
