What GPA do I need to get a discount on my insurance policy?
Will a 3.2 GPA help me save money on my car insurance? I have my first transcript back from college and I did pretty well: 3.2. This may be the first time I can get a discount on my car insurance and I wasn't sure what the GPA cut off is.
