Walmart is known for its low prices, questionable labor practices and general ruthlessness. But the retail giant that sells everything from fresh bread to fishing bait is about to enter a new market: car insurance.
The multinational corporation has partnered with a price-comparison website. AutoInsurance.com will provide Walmart customers with an easy one-stop way of comparing and purchasing coverage on the Cyb3rw3b.
Insurance will be offered by firms like Esurance, Travelers and Progressive. Naturally the retailer will heavily market its latest financial offering, though Walmart will not be responsible for its operations.
Right now the service is still in its infancy; it’s in the process of exiting the pilot phase in Pennsylvania. Beyond the Keystone State it’s expected to enter additional markets including Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and a handful more. A nationwide rollout is expected later this year. Save money. Drive Better… oh never mind…
