Resident wins FREE rent in Cyber Monday promotion

Kelsy Gibson won her free rent in Athens Ridge’s special Cyber Monday promotion.

Another Athens Ridge won FREE rent for one year in a special Cyber Monday promotion on November 30th.

Kelsy Gibson is the second resident in Athens Ridge to win her rent for next year in a drawing.

All students who renewed their leases during the promotion received $50 Amazon gift cards, making for a busy Monday in the office. Athens Ridge provided snacks for the day, and the next renewal event will be a dinner on December 15th.

“We had quite a few people that day just for the Amazon gift card,” Elizabeth Beall, Resident Relations and Marketing Manager for Athens Ridge said.

“When something happens, people want to jump on it,” she continued. Asked where the idea for the promotion came from, Beall cited the popularity of Cyber Monday and the excitement of Athens Ridge owners.

“It was definitely the owners,” she said, “With the popularity of Cyber Monday, they wanted to do something fun.”

“Having the drawings definitely encouraged me to resign my lease for my senior year earlier rather than later. And now that I have actually won, I think it is very worthwhile living here, because the homes are great and the amenities are amazing, so not having to pay anymore is just an added bonus,” Gibson said.

Gibson went on to say that the free rent drawings made her more excited to renew her lease early.


“I probably would’ve waited until the end of the semester to renew if it weren’t for the contests! Even though only four people can win the free rent, it still feels good to at least have that possibility so I definitely think people are motivated by it!” she said.

Gibson went on to talk about how the townhouses are her favorite things about Athens Ridge. She noted that the size of the homes allow her to feel like she has her own space, and she calls her townhouse her home.

“People love coming over to visit, and I love inviting people over. AR townhomes don’t feel like apartments or rentals at all,” she said.

Contest Rules 

  • Renew your lease between November 16-December 15, and you will be entered into the two remaining drawings for free rent, giving you two chances to win.
  • Renew your lease between December 16-January 15, and you will be entered into the last drawing, with one chance to win.

When you can win

  • Athens Ridge will host three Resident Appreciation Renewal Parties where the drawings will be held. The first event was on November 13th. The next events will be December 15th and January 15th.

We will have food and music at the parties. Residents must be present to win, unless a prior arrangement is made through the Management Office.

There is still time to win! The next renewal dinner will be at 5 p.m. on December 15. Athens Ridge will be serving food, and one more person will be winning FREE rent for one year.

It’s true that there is no sure way to know you’ll be the winner, but Gibson also wasn’t sure she would win.

“I think not having expectations made it even more exciting to win because I really didn’t see it coming,” she said of the competition. So, renew your lease for a chance to join Gibson and William Drennon as the winners of FREE rent.
