Unsurprisingly, the best way to earn Bilt Rewards points is by using your Bilt card for all of your purchases, especially those that fall within one of the card’s bonus categories of rent, travel, and dining. However, keep in mind that you need to make 5 transactions with your card each month to be eligible for bonus points — though this should be easy for most.
Additionally, Bilt Rewards also offers a refer-a-friend program where you can earn 25,000 points for every 5 friends who are approved for the card and make their first purchase within the first 30 days.
When it comes to redeeming points, Bilt Rewards offers several options, such as fitness classes, art pieces in The Bilt Collection, and rent credit at a rate of 0.55 cents per point. That said, if you want to get the best value possible, your best option is to redeem your points through one of the Bilt Rewards transfer partners.
Bilt Rewards offers a great list of airline and hotel transfer partners, including Air Canada Aeroplan, American Airlines AAdvantage, Turkish Miles & Smiles, and World of Hyatt, that allow you to transfer your Bilt Rewards points at a 1:1 rate to redeem them for luxurious vacations.
