Bilt Rewards is back this coming Rent Day (Nov 1) with another tiered transfer bonus offer – this time to Emirates Skywards.

Up to 150% Emirates Skywards Transfer Bonus

I really like how they are adding value to their various program tiers by giving more of a transfer bonus to higher tier members – just like they did a few months ago with Virgin Atlantic.

For the Emirates bonus, it will work similarly:

Your Bilt Rewards Status will get you between 75% and 150% more Skywards Miles when you transfer Bilt Points on November 1st.




75% (1,000 Bilt Points = 1,750 Skywards Miles)


100%  (1,000 Bilt Point = 2,000 Skywards Miles)


125%  (1,000 Bilt Point = 2,250 Skywards Miles)


150% (1,000 Bilt Point = 2,500 Skywards)

*Your bonus will be based on your status as of 11/1. Note that Bilt Status updates are reflected up to 96 hours after any earn action.  Blue members must transfer a minimum of 2,000 Bilt Points.

This is a great offer – however you must keep in mind that Emirates recently went crazy with their surcharges on flights to and through Dubai. So for me, the best uses now are on the Newark to Athens and JFK to Milan routes.

Of course, all the usual Rent Day benefits apply, such as double points on everything (except rent) and chances to play trivia for points and even win free rent.
While I won’t personally be transferring to Emirates, I do remain impressed with what Bilt is bringing each month, giving far more value than just points for rent!
