Bilt Rewards is the currency of a credit card that earns points for payments on rent. For those in high cost of living areas paying rent, it’s an easy way to earn up to 50,000 points a year for something you pay anyway now by check/ACH – except you earn rewards and there’s no fee.
As of yesterday, the airline transfer partners Bilt had were:
- American Airlines AAdvantage
- Air Canada Aeroplan
- Air France Flying Blue
- Cathay Pacific Asia Miles
- Emirates Skywards
- Hawaiian Airlines
- United Airlines MileagePlus
- Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles
- Virgin Atlantic
Plus two hotel partners: World of Hyatt and IHG Rewards.
They have just added an additional three partners:
- British Airways Avios
- Iberia Avios
- Aer Lingus Avios
Remember you can transfer between Avios programs, so left unsaid is that with linked British Airways Avios and Qatar Avios accounts, this technically adds four partners.
And that means that you can now use Bilt points to book Qatar’s QSuites by both the best way (American) and the second best way (Qatar’s Avios).
I have to give Bilt credit… they are really working to build this program out.
If you don’t currently earn points for paying rent, you can learn more or signup here.
