With today’s Groupon, you get $1,000 off rent at select Draper and Kramer apartments, on top of special deals at each property. And unlike other Groupons, when you click the BUY button above, you’re getting a free Groupon. Print out that Groupon when it arrives in your inbox, schedule an appointment with Draper and Kramer to tour an apartment you’re interested in, and, if you sign a lease, you get $1,000 off rent. With your Groupon, you can also apply the $200 move-in and $50 application fees toward your first month’s rent when you move in. The first three people with Groupons who sign a lease at each building also get a free iPod Touch and the exhilarating feeling of beating out slower people.
Since this Groupon is free, you have nothing to lose by grabbing one today. If you or anyone you know is moving before the end of August 2009, get one of these right now. If you feel like checking out the apartments later, you’ll have it in your pocket. Get your Groupon! It’s never been freer.

We understand this is a totally common deal offered by most businesses other than apartment rental companies. Many car washes offer $1,000 off and a free iPod Touch with the purchase of an exterior wash. Baskin-Robbins offers the same rebate with the purchase of one waffle cone. But only once before has the deal been offered on housing: when President Andrew Jackson signed the first lease on the White House with then-landlord Napoleon. But even then, Jackson did not get a Visa gift card and the property owner certainly did not waive the move-in fee.
