Unlock the Power of On-Demand Resident Incentives

Staff Writer |

Deliver Reward Cards directly to your residents without ever leaving the leasing office. Exclusively developed for Community Rewards, the Incentives Program is a FREE, easy-to-use service that allows apartment communities the ability to deliver digital, on-demand Reward Cards directly to residents.

Is your management company or apartment community struggling with sending Reward Cards to your residents? The hassle and time of having to go purchase thousands of dollars of physical cards. The pressure of keeping them secure in a safe. The challenge of keeping track of all of this in spreadsheets. It's painful!

We understand and have your solution. Our Custom Incentives Program is an “on-demand” platform that is an effective way to distribute Reward Cards anywhere from $5-$4,900! You can easily use these incentives in place of rent or move-in concessions, renewal rewards, or to resolve customer service challenges. Your Residents will appreciate the ability to select from a variety of national brands to claim their Reward Card instantly.

We are delighted to offer your residents a marketplace of choices so they may personalize their Reward Cards to what they want most! Here is just a sample of the many leading brands we have to offer:

Amazon Groupon SpaFinder
Banana Republic Hotels.com Spaweek.com
Bed Bath & Beyond Kohl’s Target
Crate & Barrel Nordstrom The Container Store
Domino’s Overstock.com Ulta
Gap Sephora  1-800-Flowers

Offering your residents several options for their reward makes this positive experience more personal, driving overall satisfaction.

“I really like the Incentives Program! It’s so personal and lets us control our Reward Card spend for new lease incentives. We can truly keep track of everything, and there’s an approval process which makes it very safe...And our COO loves it!"

Susan Goff - Director of Brand Management, Milestone Management

What Your Residents Will Experience:

Thanks to our latest updates we have enhanced the resident experience!

  • Your residents will see the total amount they have to redeem and the number of days left to claim their incentive. When your residents select a brand, they will now see a more detailed claim screen.
  • This claim screen will list an expiration date if applicable, delivery time, fee and if the reward will be broken up into multiple redemption codes.
  • After clicking the continue button, residents will see the last claim screen to review our updated Terms and Conditions.
  • Once they select the claim button on this screen, the brand option chosen will be final. They have 60 days to use their new Reward Card.

Select Multiple Reward Cards

Recognizing that residents would like the option to split their balance amongst several brands, we are excited to announce they can now redeem multiple Reward Cards from the amount that you send them. They can also choose just to claim part of the incentive that you issued and the rest of their balance later. Partially claimed Reward Cards are now displayed in your dashboard and any remaining balance can be found in the "More Information" screen. All partially claimed Reward Cards will be fully outlined in your dashboard reporting and can be exported.

Virtual Reward Cards and Instant Redemption

Once your residents claim their Reward Card(s), they will receive it via email immediately. They can then redeem their balance online at the selected stores. Instead of having to wait for a physical card to arrive in the mail, this ability delivers instant gratification and appreciation! Roughly 70% of residents redeem their rewards digitally.
