Bilt Rent Day
Late last year Bilt Rewards came out with a new idea to reward and entice Bilt Mastercard card holders called Bilt Rent Day. If you are not a cardholder have no fear, they also throw in a few goodies for you too. This, plus the addition of free Point.me searches for Bilt airline partners in app, show that the Bilt Rewards program is serious about offering value to all their users. I’ll update this post each month with the current Bilt Rent Day promotions and also leave any previous month’s info here so we can track how current offers compare to previous ones.
What Is Bilt Rent Day?
The Bilt Rent Day promotion is intended to reward customers for using their Bilt Mastercard and the Bilt Rewards app / program the first of every month. I think it is a pretty smart promotion and it gives loyal cardmembers consistent ability to earn bonus points. That is something that is usually a rarity in the miles and points space.
The rent day time frame consists of the first day of each month. Well, a little bit more than that actually. They consider 12:00am ET through 11:59pm PT on the first of each month to be the Bilt Rent Day timeframe, which is technically a 27 hour window.
So far each month the following double points promotion has been attached for Bilt Rent Day:
- 6x points (regularly 3x points)
- 4x points (regularly 2x points)
- ALL OTHER SPEND excluding rent
- 2x points (regularly 1x points)
The double points offer comes with a cap of 10,000 points per rent day. That breaks down into a maximum of $1,666.66 spend on dining, $2,500 on travel and $5,000 on everything else or any combination of those categories.
Bilt also offers up unique other perks, bonuses or contests each month for rent day too. I’ll list them below each month for you.

Bilt Rent Day: ToP Thoughts
If I had a Bilt Rewards card I would likely be switching over my spending on the first of the month, which is the real goal of this promotion. The hope is that you keep the card at the top of your wallet afterwards too. Whether or not you do is up to you, though I will say that 3X on dining with those transfer partners is pretty great. Regardless of what you do the rest of the month I would focus on it during rent day each month for sure. Getting 6X on dining and 4X on travel is pretty much unbeatable if you aren’t working on a welcome offer currently. I like that they offer the quizzes and other things for Bilt Rewards members that don’t have the card too. That means there is an opportunity at extra points for everyone!
If you want more infomation on the Bilt Rewards card then check out our review. Let me know in the ToP Facebook Group or over on Twitter if you participate in Bilt Rent Day at all.
