The Geico alumni discount is a type of affiliation discount available to alumni of more than 400 colleges and universities, as well as members of 200+ alumni associations and other organizations affiliated with higher education. The discount could save you as much as 8%, but it varies based on the organization and your state.

If you find an organization that you belong to in Geico's list, go to the organization’s website and sign in with your member credentials, if necessary. You can then go to the section on member benefits and find a link for a Geico insurance quote. Discounts vary by organization and state.

Full-time students who are 16-24 years old can get a Geico student discount by getting good grades, studying road safety, or belonging to an eligible organization. Together, Geico's three student discounts offer combined savings of up to 15% off premiums.
Geico's good-student discount is available to students who maintain at least a 3.0 (“B”) average. Statistics show that students with a higher GPA get into fewer accidents. For similar reasons, students under 21 years old who have completed a driver’s education course may be eligible for another discount. Also, Geico's organization discounts offer savings to students who attend select colleges or universities, or belong to certain student groups such as fraternities, sororities and honor societies.… read full answer
Not all Geico student discounts are available in all states. You can confirm which discounts you qualify for by filling out a quote form on geico.com, calling Geico's toll-fee customer service line (800-201-7847), or contacting your local Geico agent. This is definitely one piece of homework you should make sure to complete. Exploring potential discounts is especially important for young people, for whom car insurance costs tend to be high and income levels relatively low.
So, to summarize, Geico student discounts offer savings of up to 15% on premiums for full-time high school or college students between the ages of 16 and 24 who:
Get good grades,
Complete a driver’s education class,
Attend certain colleges or universities, or
Belong to select organizations.
It’s obvious why Geico offers student discounts, too. Younger drivers have proven to be riskier to insure, and higher risk generally means higher premiums. But by proving to Geico that you are a responsible student, you can demonstrate that you’re not a risky person, which would in turn make you deserving of a lower bill.
To get the Geico federal employee discount of 8%, you must be an active or retired federal government employee, GS-7 or above.

The Geico Eagle Discount is available in most states and Washington, D.C.… read full answer
If you belong to a federal organization like the Association of the U.S. Army, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, or Young Government Leaders, you can get a membership discount instead. Geico has a long list of over 500 federal affiliates, but the exact discount varies based on the organization and your location. The membership discount is also available in most states and D.C., but you can’t combine both the Geico membership and Eagle discounts.
Geico will ask about your employment when you get a quote online or over the phone, so you’ll know right away if you’re eligible for one of these programs.
It’s also worth noting that Geico was founded in 1936 to serve federal employees. Their name is actually an acronym for Government Employees Insurance Co.—GEICO. You can count on them to take care of your insurance needs as a federal employee.
