Money To Live

Spending $100

Filed under: Uncategorized — by moneytolive @ 5:00 am

Before moving to Virginia, I picked out my apartment complex online by reading reviews. When I visited my complex, I was sure to mention that I read about them on rent.com.

Rent.com has a reward program that gives $100 to anyone who signs a lease and moves into an apartment found through their site. Last week I finally got the $100 in the mail.

I was hoping to get a check but instead received a pre-paid Visa card. I would have liked cash so that I could just put it straight in my checking account and use the money to pay utility bills.

These are the freebies I got for moving into my apartment:

  • $100 from Rent.com
  • $50 in gasoline ($25 at move in and $25 when my washing machine exploded and flooded the carpet)
  • 2 free pizzas from Dominos (it was just supposed to be one pizza, but they delivered the wrong toppings and then delivered a second pizza for free)

By combining the $100 Visa card and a $100 cupon, I got this trench coat from Ann Taylor for free!
