Over 18,000 apartment complexes across the country have agreements with ApartmentSearch and the number grows every day. “We have a national team of salespeople whose goal is to target properties and expand the ApartmentSearch network,” says Creed Poore, Intellectual Property Manager for ApartmentSearch. Log on to the site to check out complexes in your destination city.

2. Let the apartment’s property manager know that ApartmentSearch sent you. If you find a place that you like on the site, tell the building’s property manager that you found the complex on before you sign the lease. After you sign your lease, log on to and let them know you’re moving into an apartment that you found on the site. ApartmentSearch does all the work from here. They’ll confirm your move-in with the property manager. Within two weeks, ApartmentSearch will send you the first of two rental rewards: a $100 gift certificate to use at any CORT store.

The photos in this post were taken at the Austin, Texas showroom –- these are items that were on the showroom floor when we visited in August 2007. We were impressed with the variety of items you could easily “buy” under or slightly above the $100 price range.

You can use this like cash anywhere that American Express is accepted. It may take up to six weeks from the date you sign your lease to receive your check card.

$200 for less than five minutes of work? It’s hard to beat that kind of deal. In fact, no one does. While other sites offer similar reward programs for apartment rentals, no one offers a bigger reward than ApartmentSearch. is also committed to top-notch customer service. “We offer personalized service throughout your apartment search process,” says Creed Poore. “We will partner with you to make sure the process is as easy as humanly possible. We’re available by email or live chat to answer any questions and offer assistance.”
