RentPayment (http://www.rentpayment.com), a leading provider of electronic rent payment services, announced today the grand prize winner of $10,000 cash in the first annual RentPayment Sweepstakes- Beverly & Megan Allaire of San Diego, CA and American Campus Communities. Beverly Allaire had over 11 entries in the Sweepstakes utilizing various payment methods unique to RentPayment including RentByText rent reminders. “RentPayment is so easy to use, I log in and in 2 seconds my daughter’s rent is paid… Since is she a college student I don’t have to worry about sending her a check, taking it to the office and waiting 3, 4, [or] 5 days for it to clear” says Beverly about the convenience of online rent payments.
The RentPayment Sweepstakes had great participation from all RentPayment customers but the response from residents at American Campus Communities was overwhelming. Renters spread word of the Sweepstakes virally through email and social media, sharing the news with neighbors, roommates, and parents paying on behalf of renters, just like winner Beverly Allaire.
“Congratulations to Beverly and Megan Allaire for their participation and enthusiasm with the RentPayment Sweepstakes,” said Matt Golis, CEO, RentPayment. “It is always great to hear from renters who utilize the convenient payment options RentPayment provides to fit their needs.”
