Bilt is back with a special edition of “Rent Day,” this time with a week’s worth of Bilt Rewards bonuses thanks to Black Friday.
The start-up, which has made waves with its no-fee credit card, a plethora of transfer partners, and fee-free rent payments, introduced Rent Day in October with promises to offer deals each month. November was great, and now December is looking just as good!
With double points (up to 6x per $1 spent) for 7 days, a 100% transfer bonus to IHG One Rewards, free SoulCycle rides for friends, and fun ways to earn Bilt Rewards points, December Rent Day is extra rewarding.
Let’s take a look at all the details!
Bilt Rent Day: December Edition
Rent Day is a 2-pronged perk. The first, and most lucrative, is available to those who hold the Bilt World Elite Mastercard® Credit Card.
Rent Day for Cardholders
Although this card has no annual fee, it delivers a solid return on spend:
- 3x points per dollar on dining
- 2x points per dollar on travel
- 1x point per dollar everywhere else (including rent)
With Rent Day December, cardholders can earn double points on all purchases for 7 days starting on November 25, 2022, at 12 a.m. EST (Black Friday). This brings earnings to:
- 6x points per dollar on dining
- 4x points per dollar on travel
- 2x points per dollar everywhere else (excluding rent)
Normally Rent Day only lasts for 24 hours, so 7 days will give cardholders plenty of time to rack up some bonus points. This brings the Bilt card to the top of the heap when it comes to earnings on dining. We value Bilt Rewards at 1.8 cents apiece, which means you’ll be able to net a 10.8% return on all dining spend.
In contrast, the American Express® Gold Card earns 4x points per dollar spent at restaurants. We value American Express Membership Rewards points at 2.2 cents apiece, which means you’ll be getting 8.8% back when using the Amex Gold card.
Considering Bilt’s range of useful transfer partners, including World of Hyatt and American Airlines (an exclusive), this makes Rent Day a very valuable proposition for cardholders.
2x Transfer Bonus to IHG One Rewards
On December 1st, Bilt Rewards members will have the opportunity to transfer their points to IHG One Rewards and receive a 100% bonus.
While a 1:2 transfer ratio is always nice, unless you’re topping off your account for a specific redemption, you’re probably better off using your Bilt Rewards points elsewhere.
Just note that the bonus is good for a single transfer only on December 1, 2022, from 12 a.m. EST until 11:59 p.m. PST, so if you do transfer, make sure you transfer the correct amount.

SoulCycle and Bilt Rent Day Rides
Members can also take advantage of Rent Day by booking a 2-for-1 SoulCycle class on the first day of every month. This means members can book a bike and receive a complimentary bike for a friend at over 50 different SoulCycle locations. Plus, earn 10x points.
Booking can be done either through the SoulCycle app or via the Bilt Rewards app.
Rent and Bilt Rewards Point Promotions
In addition to elevated earning rates and deals, Bilt is offering its members an opportunity to win a free month of rent (up to $2,500) by completing Bilt’s Rent Day Challenge on December 1, 2022, at BiltRewards.com/RentDay and following Bilt Rewards on Instagram.
By taking part in their very own Bilt Point Quest virtual quiz game — inspired by Bilt’s Point Quest TikTok — users may also earn free Bilt Rewards points that can be used for trips, fitness classes, rent credits, and other expenses. On December 1, 2022, members may access the game through the Bilt Rewards app and play for a chance to win up to 350 points by answering a series of questions.
Bilt will launch new offers each month that can be accessed by downloading the Bilt Rewards app and clicking the Rent Day button before the first of the month or going to BiltRewards.com/RentDay.
Bilt continues to impress and provide great benefits for members and cardholders alike.
Taking advantage of the December Rent Day promotions only means more opportunities for members to earn more points!
Besides the ability to pay rent with a credit card (awesome), those who hold the Bilt card can now earn up to 6x points per dollar spent on dining for 7 days starting November 25. Add in a nice IHG transfer bonus, a complimentary SoulCycle session for a friend, and promotional giveaways, and Bilt continues to add more value to its already impressive program.
