Bilt Rent Day – Up To 6X Points On First Day Of Each Month
I’ve written about the Bilt Mastercard before and still love that it’s like I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred without an annual fee. This is a solid card whether you rent or not.
But the card is becoming even more valuable with the addition of special spend bonuses on Rent Day, the first day of each month. Those include:
- Dining – 6x points per USD (regularly 3x points)
- Travel – 4x points (regularly 2x points)
- All other spend (excluding rent) – 2x points (regularly 1x points)
It’s not always possible to time travel bookings to the first of the month, but earning four points per dollar on a no-fee credit card with valuable transfer partners is such a cool value-add.
Airline and hotel transfer partners include:
- Aer Lingus AerClub
- Air Canada Aeroplan
- Air France/KLM FlyingBlue
- American Airlines AAdvantage
- British Airways Executive Club
- Cathay Pacific Asia Miles
- Emirates Skywards
- Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles
- Iberia Plus
- IHG Rewards
- Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles
- United Airlines MileagePlus
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
- World of Hyatt
Where else can you transfer to both American Airlines and United Airlines (not to mention the other great pool of partners) at attractive rates and near instantaneously (unlike Marriott Bonvoy)?
But wait, there’s more!
2-for-1 (ish) Virgin Voyages
Bilt has teamed up with Virgin Red to offer “2-for-1 fares” on Virgin Voyages’ cruises. In reality, it appears that the second passenger enjoys a 50% discount for bookings made from September 26, 2022 through October 31, 2022. Blackout dates apply.
Bilt Members can redeem by linking their Bilt Account to their Virgin Red account – they’ll then receive an “access key” code via email that can be used to book qualifying Virgin Voyages by October 31st on VirginVoyages.com.
Soulcycle X, Ride Together Classes
Bilt Rewards is partnering with SoulCycle to host one “Rent Day, Ride Together” class on the first of every month at over 50 SoulCycle locations nationwide, allowing members to book a class and receive a complimentary bike for a friend. Members can reserve the special-themed class via Soul-Cycle.com, SoulCycle app or directly through the Bilt Rewards app.
The value proposition of Bilt and the Bilt MasterCard continues to grow. If you can redirect spending to Rent Day (the first day of each month), you stand to gain even more points.
