"Overstock's mission is to offer high-quality products at low prices in order to save people money, and the launch of our insurance tab fits this mission beautifully. Our insurance tab is, in effect, an insurance exchange, which lets consumers compare live quotes for insurance on residential, vehicle, and small business insurance, and bind (that is, pay for and have go into effect) insurance policies right from our site," said Overstock.com CEO Patrick M. Byrne. "This is insurance done right."
