Here at Esurance, we love our sports and have sponsored everything from a Major League Baseball™ team to a local lacrosse league. We’re also a big advocate of making things smarter (car insurance in particular). So it seemed a natural fit for us to sponsor the Pac-12 Conference this year, and as part of that sponsorship, to offer students and alumni a special car insurance discount.

In keeping with our smarter approach to everything we do, we’re offering Pac-12 students and alumni another way to save some money on their car insurance: the Pac-12 discount.* So if you graduated from or are currently attending a Pac-12 school, you could qualify for additional savings. Not bad, eh?

How to get the Pac-12 discount

When you get a quote at, you’ll be asked if you attended a Pac-12 school. If you qualify, the discount will apply automatically. It’s that easy. And, as always, you can give us a ring at 1-800-ESURANCE (1-800-378-7262) too.

About the Pac-12

The Pac-12 (the Pac-10 till just last year) has long been a powerhouse of both academics and sports. It includes the following schools and teams:

  • University of Arizona Wildcats, or just Cats
  • Arizona State University Sun Devils
  • UC Berkeley, aka Cal Bears
  • University of Colorado at Boulder Buffaloes
  • University of Oregon Ducks
  • Oregon State University Beavers
  • Stanford University Cardinal
  • UCLA Bruins
  • University of Southern California Trojans
  • University of Utah Runnin’ Utes and Utes (mens and womens teams)
  • University of Washington Huskies
  • Washington State Cougars

No other conference can boast more NCAA National Team Championships. And academically, the conference is just as competitive, with Stanford and UC Berkeley being particular standouts.

(What better place for smarter car insurance to hang out?)
