Rent Day is Rent Week from Friday Nov 25 – Thurs Dec 1st

Bilt is extending their Rent Day Double Points beginning on Black Friday, November 25th, all the way through Rent Day on Thursday, December 1st.

That’s 7 days of double points earnings, meaning members with the Bilt Mastercard will earn accelerated points across all non-rent spend, including:

● DINING: 6x points (regularly 3x points)
● TRAVEL: 4x points (regularly 2x points)
● ALL OTHER SPEND excluding rent: 2x points (regularly 1x points)

Cardholders will receive double earnings up to 50,000 bonus points from 12:01am ET on November 25th through 11:59pm PT on December 1st. Cardholders will continue to earn 1x points on rent payments when paying with the Bilt Mastercard (as long as you use your card 5 times each statement period to earn points.

If you don’t have Bilt yet, don’t forget these is a “secret Bilt signup bonus

IHG 100% Transfer Bonus One Day Only – Dec 1st

From Bilt: On December 1st only, Bilt is offering a 100% transfer bonus to IHG One Rewards. That means for every Bilt Point transferred to IHG One Rewards, you will get 2 IHG points (100% more than you normally would at a 1:1 transfer rate). For example, transferring 20,000 Bilt Points would give you 40,000 IHG points. This is the first time a loyalty program has ever done a 100% transfer bonus with a 1:2 ratio.

To redeem, Bilt members must link their Bilt Rewards and IHG One Rewards accounts in the Bilt App on the “Rewards” tab under “Travel”. Bilt Blue members must transfer at least 2,000 Bilt Points while Bilt Silver, Gold and Platinum members can transfer a minimum of 1,000 Bilt Points. Points must be transferred in a single transfer on December 1, 2022 from 12:00am ET
until 11:59pm PT.

My thoughts: I would still only use this transfer bonus to “top off” IHG points for something like a 4th Night Free award (which you need a IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card or IHG Premier Business Card. A Bilt point can be transferred to Hyatt, United, and Turkish, among others, and with IHG points worth about 0.4 cents each, I definitely wouldn’t do this speculatively, even thought it’s “One day only.”

do absolutely like the double points for a while week with Rent Day being a full week, though!

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
