Bilt Rewards has been making waves in the travel industry since it first emerged on the scene. This is thanks to its innovative program, which allows members to pay rent with their Bilt World Elite Mastercard® Credit Card without incurring an additional transaction fee — and earn points in the process.

The program has continuously expanded its roster of transfer partners, each of which increases the value of each Bilt Rewards point earned.

The program has now announced its latest transfer partner: Hilton Honors. Let’s take a look at the details of this new addition.

Hilton Honors Joins Bilt’s Roster of Transfer Partners

The partnership between Bilt Rewards and Hilton Honors is now active. From today onwards, all Bilt Rewards members can transfer Bilt Rewards points to their Hilton Honors accounts at a 1:1 transfer ratio.

To celebrate the new partner, Bilt Rewards is offering a special bonus for those who make transfers. Members who make their first transfer from Bilt Rewards to Hilton Honors between May 8 and June 8, 2024, will receive a bonus of 1,000 Hilton Honors points.

Furthermore, Bilt Rewards members can earn an additional 100 bonus Bilt Rewards points by simply linking their Bilt Rewards and Hilton Honors accounts through the Bilt Rewards mobile app (iOS, Android).

With this development, Bilt Rewards has become the only program that enables transfers to the 4 most popular hotel programs in the U.S.: World of Hyatt, IHG One Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy, and, now, Hilton Honors.

Hot Tip:

If you have an American Express Membership Rewards card, those points transfer to Hilton Honors at a more favorable 1:2 ratio.

Earning and Redeeming Bilt Rewards Points

Earning Bilt Rewards points is primarily accomplished through making purchases with the Bilt card. The points you earn are based on the following structure:

  • 3x points on dining, including restaurants or takeout
  • 2x points on travel purchases, specifically on tickets purchased directly with an airline, hotel stays booked directly, and car rentals
  • 1x points on rent payments, up to a maximum of 100,000 points per year

There are numerous options available when it’s time to redeem Bilt Rewards points. The program now has a total of 18 transfer partners, including Hilton Honors and other popular programs, including American Airlines AAdvantage (through June 2024) and World of Hyatt.

Final Thoughts

Bilt Rewards continues to impress by rapidly adding additional transfer partners — the latest being Hilton Honors. With 18 transfer partners, including some exclusives, Bilt Rewards points are becoming some of the most valuable transferrable points to earn.

We can’t wait to see what more Bilt Rewards has to offer!
