Insurance discount for Stolen Vehicle Revovery Feature

I just spoke to GEICO to see if they would discount my premium because of the stolen vehicle recovery feature provided through BMW assist. They would not discount my premium. Has anyone gotten an insurance discount because of this feature? If so, what insurance company are you using?

Yes I have gotten the discount, I use Metlife and had to fax them my vehicle sticker information (which highlighted the BMW Assist feature). You should inform Geico that other insurance companies do this including Liberty Mutual I believe. Alternatively, you can always shop around for better rates.

Ditto on USAA. They discounted my premium after I called them.

Same situation with my parents about a year ago. Sometimes I'm not sure why my parents don't shop around for car insurance, they just assume that the deal they're getting is the best (they've been with Geico forever, never switched). They're an insurance company's favourite type of customer

Both GEICO and Progressive gave me the discount for BMW Assist.
