(And business class starts at 20,625 Bilt points one way!)
Bilt Rewards seems to really figured out a way to over-deliver each month in a way that continually surprises me. Last month, they offered the fast track to Hyatt Globalist (for just 20 nights).
This month, they are doing a double whammy of a promo with Air France Flying Blue.
In this article
Bilt Rent Day x Flying Blue 100% Transfer Bonus
First: On May 1st (only), each Bilt point you transfer to Flying Blue will be doubled. So 1,000 Bilt gets you 2,000 Flying Blue.
Bilt Rent Day x Flying Blue Promo Routes
Second: They arranged special promo fares for Bilt Rewards members only – done via your connected account. Check out the one way deals below and the divide by 2 to get your price in Bilt points if you transfer on May 1st.

How To Take Advantage of this May Rent Day Offer
Link your Bilt Rewards and Flying Blue accounts in the Bilt Rewards app. Remember members will also earn 100 Bilt Points for linking their accounts
Transfer your Bilt Points to Flying Blue on May 1st to get double the miles (i.e. 20K Bilt Points = 40K Flying Blue miles). The 100% transfer bonus is available from 12:00AM ET May 1 until 11:59PM PT May 1.
Book any of the promo routes above between May 1st and May 30th to take advantage of the special rates.
It may not go without saying, so I’ll say it: check the routes you want on May 1st to get an idea on actual availability. In my opinion, you only want to do this whole thing if you both transfer AND BOOK on May 1st since that is the only way to confirm availability.
You Could Win a Roundtrip for Two in Business Class
Two winners will each win round trip Business Class airfare to either Paris or Amsterdam for themselves and a companion through Flying Blue.
To be entered to win, find the hidden Bilt bricks in the Rent Day Challenge image in the Bilt app on May 1 and submit your answer to https://biltrewards.tfaforms.
Double Points on Rent Day
A reminder that like every month, all of your spend on May 1st on your Bilt Rewards Mastercard earns double points (excluding rent).
Don’t have a Bilt Rewards Mastercard?
Well, you don’t actually need one to participate in this – but that’s how you rack up the points so if you don’t have one, you probably don’t have enough points to do anything with this promo. If you pay rent, you should be earning one point per dollar on your rent, with no fees. It’s about as much of a no brainer as there is given the size of most people’s rent and the lack of fees to pay with Bilt (while earning points that transfer to Hyatt, AA, United, etc).
