At Lykens Companies, we are passionate about helping our tenants and growing our reach. A simple and straight-forward referral program lets us do both. If you’re wondering how to get an easy $200, keep reading. We’ll show you how to refer someone and address some frequently asked questions along the way.
If you’re currently a Lykens tenant, you will receive $200 per lease for each of your friends (or family members, or acquaintances, or arch-enemies you’re trying to do a favor for) who sign a lease with us because of your reference.
Referencing is as easy as sending an email to your leasing agent with the contact info of your friend. Check out our example below:
I have a friend who might be interested in renting from Lykens. [Include THEIR NAME, CONTACT INFO, LYKENS UNIT INFO]
Yep, it’s that easy. Then, all you have to do is wait (and maybe nudge your friend to follow through and rent one of our awesome units).
Do I get $200 each time I give contact info?
No, but we agree that this sounds like a great gig. Referral bonuses happen only when those referred sign a lease.
Two of my friends moved into a Lykens apartment together, so does that mean that I get $400?
No, the bonus is applied to the number of leases or apartments, not the number of tenants. If two of your friends move into a single apartment together, then the bonus would be $200. If two of your friends moved into different apartments and each signed different leases for Lykens, then your bonus would total $400.
I don’t rent from Lykens, but know someone looking for an apartment. Am I still eligible for the Referral Bonus?
For the time being, the $200 referral bonus only applies to current Lykens tenants; however, non-tenants receive a $50 referral bonus.
How soon do I get my bonus?
Bonuses will be issued 30 days from the lease signing.
How is the money distributed? Can I just get it off rent?
For our tenants, there are two ways apply your bonuses. Tenants can receive a $200 Visa Gift Card that can be treated like cash. If a gift card isn’t ideal, tenants can have their bonus apply directly to their account and they’ll automatically receive $200 off of the next month’s rent.
I have tons of friends who all want to rent from Lykens! Is there a maximum number of Referral Bonuses that I can get?
No! We don’t put a cap on Referral Bonuses! If you have ten friends sign leases with Lykens, expect ten $200 bonuses. Your referrals help us and we offer bonuses as a thank you for that help.
Where I can find properties to refer?
Great question! Check out all of our available rentals and send the link over to your friends!
