One of the most exciting credit cards (especially for those who pay rent) is offering one of the best Black Friday promotions we have seen this year — 5x points on all purchases, besides rent.
For 1 day only, those with the Bilt Mastercard can earn some serious bonus points on their holiday shopping, which can then be turned into some great travel thanks to Bilt Rewards’ unique transfer partners.
Let’s take a closer look at the deal…
What Is Bilt?
First of all, for those unfamiliar, the Bilt card is a credit card that launched earlier this year with a focus on renters. With the Bilt card, you can pay your rent and (finally) earn points.
Besides paying rent, cardholders can also earn 2x points per $1 on travel purchases and 3x points per $1 on dining.
To make things even sweeter, those points can be redeemed for rent, down payments, fitness classes, home décor, and of course, travel — all for no annual fee.
Hot Tip: If you want to skip the waitlist and apply for the card with early access, just use code: UPG4BILT.
Bilt’s Black Friday Deal
Now for the good stuff, Bilt’s Black Friday Deal.
All qualifying purchases (excluding rent) made on Black Friday will automatically earn 5x points per $1 spent.
The promotion runs from 12 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, November 26, 2021, and each cardholder can earn a maximum of 50,000 points.
Hot Tip: Supercharge your earnings by using a cash-back portal to start your online shopping! Join Rakuten by December 7 and earn $40 or 4,000 Amex Membership Rewards points after your first purchase of at least $40 within 90 days of joining.
How To Use Bilt Points
One of the best parts about Bilt is the number of transfer partners, including some that are hard to come by.
The current list includes:
American Airlines and World of Hyatt are particularly attractive since they don’t have many other transfer partners.
Overall, this is an excellent promotion by Bilt. Earning 5x points on purchases is a no-brainer, especially when you can redeem those points at a 1:1 ratio with some unique travel partners.
If you have a Bilt card and are planning to do some shopping on Black Friday, don’t miss this deal.
