Free Rent!

It's moving time for most renters, especially if you live in a college town like Boston. What better way to kick off a new year in a new place than by getting FREE RENT for a year!

You heard me, free rent. Apartment Guide and Penkse Truck Rentals are running a Twitter contest. One lucky winner will receive $15,000 (in some areas that's free rent for TWO years!) and $1000 towards the rental of a Penske truck for moving day.

To win this awesome prize, there are two steps.
  1. Go to and follow @aptguide. Twitter's free to join and super addictive so if you're not on already, you should be! (Don't forget to follow @apartment528 while you're at it. It's not part of the contest but it will make me happy!)

  2. Tweet. Copy and paste the message below into your tweet (that's a "status update" for you newbies).
    Enter for chance to win $15,000 (free rent for year): follow @aptguide and tweet this msg. #freerent

And you're done. Easy huh?! If you don't win the big prize, don't worry. Four runners-up will win an 8gig iPod Touch. Not a bad consolation prize!

The contest ends 11:59 p.m. ET on August 31, 2009. The winner and runners-up will be notified via direct message from @aptguide on Twitter.

Please note, this is NOT an Apartment 528 contest. This contest is run by Apartment Guide and Penske Truck Rentals. Please see their site for more info.

Good luck and happy tweeting!
