The Bilt Rewards loyalty program just got even more rewarding. Effective April 18, 2023, Bilt members can earn up to 11X points on dining through the new Bilt Dining Program. Here’s everything you need to know about Bilt Dining, including how to earn a dizzying 11X points per dollar spent.
Bilt Dining Launches
Credit card dining programs are a popular feature of many frequent flyer programs and credit card networks. These programs, like AAdvantage Dining from American Airlines, Capital One Dining, and Resy, are just a few examples of popular dining portals. These programs allow members to earn additional points or miles with select restaurants – just for using a linked credit card.
And now Bilt is joining the dining program game with Bilt Dining.
A new digital wallet, Bilt Wallet, makes the new Bilt Dining program possible. The mobile wallet lets Bilt Rewards members add any credit card to their rewards account, meaning they can maximize their rewards no matter what credit card they have. Even better, the first three cards added to your Bilt Wallet will earn 100 Bilt points each.
How Does Bilt Dining Work?
Using Bilt Dining is simple. The program lives within the Bilt mobile app interface under the “Dining” tab. There, you’ll find a list of eligible restaurants. You can sort results by Bilt’s top picks or filter by location, cuisine type, and price range. The program is currently limited to Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and New York City, although Bilt plans to add new locations continuously.
The Bilt Wallet aspect of Bilt Dining means you can add any credit card and maximize your rewards. So even if your credit card doesn’t earn rewards, you can still earn 5X points on the dining purchases – just for being a Bilt Rewards member.
Earn Up to 11X with the Bilt Mastercard
Bilt members who also hold the Bilt Mastercard credit card from Wells Fargo can earn even more rewards – up to a staggering 11X Bilt points through the Bilt Dining program. Bilt cardholders earn 3X points on dining daily, with the Bilt Dining program offering another 5X. Eight points per dollar on dining is great, but that bonus is again supercharged, thanks to Bilt’s “Rent Day” promotion.
“Rent Day” Double Points Bonus
On the first of every month, Bilt Mastercard cardholders can double their earnings in addition to 1x points on rent. This monthly “holiday,” known as “Rent Day,” brings that dining points total to an impressive 11X.
It’s worth noting that the “Rent Day” promotion does not apply to the 5X points members earn through Bilt Dining. Instead, it’s the 3X points on dining that Bilt Mastercardholders earn that doubles. Here’s a points breakdown of the Bilt Mastercard on everyday purchases (and “Rent Day” bonuses:
|Category||Earning rate||Rent Day rate|
|Rent||1X (up to $50,000 per year)||1X|
|All other purchases||1X||2X|
About Bilt Rewards
The Bilt Rewards Alliance is a collection of over two million rental homes across the United States. The program is also the first of its kind to offer reward points on rent, with Bilt Mastercard cardholders earning 1X points per $1 spent on rent purchases (up to $50,000 in rent payments per year).
While Bilt Rewards is owned and operated by the Blackstone Group, America’s largest real estate holder, you can earn points on rent regardless of your landlord – and if they accept card payments. If your apartment doesn’t accept credit cards or you rent outside the Bilt Rewards Alliance of landlords, make your payment through Bilt’s mobile app, and the company will mail a physical check to your landlord. This process ensures your rent is paid in a streamlined manner while still earning rewards points.
