Bilt Rewards offers something extra on the 1st day of the month. At a minimum, you can earn a few hundred points from trivia, enter to win your month’s rent free, and get double points on every charge all day.

They also sometimes have a “bonus” perk and this month’s is a 100% transfer bonus to HawaiianMiles.

While it’s certainly not my favorite program, with a 2:1 transfer rate you just might find some good deals.

Remember the transfer bonus is on Pacific time: Feb 1 at 12:01 PT until 11:59 PT. So don’t be early nor late 😉

While business class flights from the US to Hawaii are mostly dynamic, at 2:1 you might find a pretty sweet deal to get from NY-Honolulu (for instance).

15,000 each way in coach or 65,000 miles in Business is solid (of course, you can fly to HNL from NY for 12,500 Turkish miles but good luck finding that United saver award flight to book it

You can also redeem with ANA, Korean Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia, any of which could be a great deal if you find partner space at 2:1

And last but not least, while you only get max 1 cent per point in value with partner JetBlue (fixed chart based on price), you can score up to 2 cents each using this bonus, not that it would be my favorite redemption by any means.

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.
