MySmartMove Discount

33 Replies

I thought BP offers a $5 discount for MySmartMove, but whenever I go to resources and click "Tenant Screening" and hit "Learn More" under the Landlord section, the pricing shows $25 for the basic and +$5 for the additional. This is the same pricing that is offered if you just stumble across their site. Am I missing something?

@Joshua Dorkin

@Michael Seeker - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'm enquired regarding the matter and will hopefully know something on Monday.

Any update on this @Joshua Dorkin ? I'm still seeing the $25 price point when I navigate through the BP link...

@Joshua Dorkin ,

I had the same experience as @Michael Seeker yesterday and today. I couldn't use the regular $5 off through the perk page, nor could I use the Pro perk, even though I've paid for a Pro membership.

I double-checked your link for the Pro perk Josh, but the code didn't work. Same one I tried earlier.. Paid an extra $30 in the last 24 hours.. bummer :(


@J. Martin - I just noted to our reps at TransUnion the issue you're having and hopefully we'll have a response shortly. I was told it was working fine days ago.

Thanks @Joshua Dorkin

I'll have several more in the next week, so I'll be trying again soon..

Hi @J Martin

I'm a representative with TransUnion SmartMove. I apologize for the trouble you've had with the coupon codes. We tested the $5 off coupon and PRO member coupon and both appear to be working. If you continue to have trouble please email us at [email protected] with a good phone number to call you at during business hours and we will contact you directly to help. We can also offer you a refund for the difference you paid without the coupon. Thanks!

Thanks for hopping in so quickly @Joshua Dorkin  and @Andrea Collatz  to address the issue. I emailed the email address you included, coming from my SmartMove account, with your comment copy and pasted.

Just so I can make sure I'm doing it correctly in the future, can you post, email, or PM me the Pro code so I can use it successfully in the future please?

Thank you!

Hi @J. Martin

Yes, we will respond to your email and include the PRO coupon code. Thanks!

After a bit of a delay on my part, and a few emails with @Andrea Collatz  , she told me that the discount would be applied, and refunded shortly, and made a modification to my account so it would work in the future.

From what I understand now:


You need to have originally registered on through the BP link when you set up your account for the first time. Then use the code.

If you originally registered through without going through the BP link, like I did, the discount code will not work. Although Andrea said she was able to modify that for the future.. Thank you!

If I'm incorrect on any of this Andrea, feel free to correct me.

@Joshua Dorkin  ,

Thanks again for jumping in so early on this forum to put Andrea in touch!

Does the discount only work if you pay personally. or does the renter get the discount too if the renter pays?

Ive given up with mysmartmove. Every time I go there, it tells me my password is incorrect even though I called yesterday and had the password reset, just to have the same problem again today. Not worth the aggravation.

Hi @DJ Johnson

Yes, you can give the coupon code to the renter to enter on the payment screen for a discount on their BiggerPockets SmartMove transaction. If you or your renter need any help with the coupon please email us at [email protected]

@Benjamin Timmins

Hi Andrea,

When I log into to request a criminal report, credit score, recommendation, and full credit score, it's charging me $30, which I don't believe is the discounted Biggerpockets rate. It's definitely higher than the $25 I was paying for TransUnion Smartmove screening earlier this year.  Can you look into this and get back with me?  Thanks.

Hi @Ken P.  

There is a discounted rate at when you use the coupon code listed here: You will see the coupon code when you click the "Save $5" button.

If you are a Bigger Pockets Pro member you'll receive even more money off your SmartMove transactions. 

Thank you, that discount code worked and saved $5

@Andrea Collatz,

When a landlord use SmartMove and request a credit report and criminal search, and the landlord and tenant is in the state of Mississippi how long will it take to get the criminal search back.

Joe Gore

Hi @Joe Gore 

SmartMove criminal results are instant regardless of state. You will see the criminal report as soon as your tenant completes their application. Thanks for your question!
