Rent.com (An eBay Company) / $100 Check From Rent.com a GIMMICK
Rent.com promises people with $100 reward when they report a lease for a property they saw on rent.com. They claim that they will send out the check to you within 8-10 weeks of lease reported to them, But this is not the case!! Infact on their website, they claim that the 8-10 weeks is the time they take to confirm the lease with rental office and to send out a check to you.
I reported the lease and it is now close to 12 weeks and after repeated complaints with their customer service, they claim that my rental office did not confirm the least yet with them, and they cannot send me the check. The funniest part is, this guy gave me the responsibility to urge my property manager to confirm the least with rent.com as soon as possible, to enable rent.com to send me the check! So that means, if my rental office does not confirm the lease for a year with rent.com, I wouldn't still get a check!!
I am thinking that this is just a gimmick to attract people and make use of their system, so they can make big business through advertisements etc. Note: One of the rental office told me that they pay $400 to rent.com, for every lease referred through rent.com. So we get only a portion of what they get and they are really not paying anything out of their pocket!
So I would recommend everyone to NOT use rent.com because they would at end of the day wait in anticipation of the check and be disappointed!!
I am going to wait for another 2 weeks (3 1/2 months) and then if I still don't get the check, I will report them to BBB, to avoid other people to not fall in to such traps!
