Marriott Bonvoy is debuting as the latest Bilt Rewards transfer partner, with points transferring at a 1:1 ratio. This latest addition provides even more value for Bilt cardholders, as well as the ability to earn rewards on rent (minus the transaction fee), double points on the first of each month, and Bilt Dining – which offers up to 11X points at select restaurants.
Marriott Bonvoy: The Latest Bilt Rewards Transfer Partner
Thanks to a new hotel transfer partner in the collection, the Bilt Mastercard is even more rewarding. Marriott Bonvoy was added to the Bilt Rewards transfer partners list last week, making Bilt one of the most appealing cards for transferring points to other loyalty programs – without having to pay an annual fee.
Bilt Mastercard cardholders can transfer points to their Marriott Bonvoy account at a ratio of 1:1. Bilt Rewards points transfer to Marriott Bonvoy in increments of 1,000, with at least 2,000 points required as the minimum transferrable amount for Bilt Blue tier members (the basic tier). Cardholders also enjoy a bonus of 5,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for every 20,000 Bilt points transferred in a single transaction.
Bilt Rewards Offers Significant Value for Members
Marriott Bonvoy is just the latest addition to the Bilt Rewards program. Bilt points transfer to more than a dozen partners, including some of the biggest names in global travel:
|AAdvantage||World of Hyatt||IHG Rewards||Marriott Bonvoy|
|Emirates Skywards||Flying Blue||Aeroplan||Virgin Points|
|Aer Lingus||British Airways||Iberia||HawaiianMiles|
|Cathay Pacific||United MileagePlus||Turkish Miles&Smiles|
While transferring points to Marriott might add further value for Bilt cardholders, it doesn’t mean that’s where the best value lies. Hotel loyalty points tend to have lower relative value than airline frequent flyer miles, making flights often the best value when transferring points. Emirates, for example, offers an impressive amount of global codeshare partners, meaning you might find better value there versus a hotel program.
There’s even more value for Bilt points to be had on the first of every month through Bilt’s Rent Day promotion. On Rent Day, Bilt cardholders earn double points (2X) on all purchases (excluding rent payments). This promotion is a great way to maximize points that can later be transferred to any of the above partners. But Bilt takes it further and occasionally provides transfer bonuses to select partners. For example, Bilt recently offered an up-to 75% bonus when transferring to Emirates Skywards.
About Bilt Rewards
Bilt Rewards is a unique rewards program designed to help renters earn rewards on their monthly rent payments and other purchases. The program works within the Bilt Alliance, a nationwide network of over 3.5 million premium rental homes. Bilt Mastercard members can earn rewards on everyday purchases and earn points on rent even outside the Bilt Alliance. Simply pay rent directly in your building’s online portal or pay with your card in the Bilt Rewards app, and Bilt sends a rent check on your behalf. Rewards apply to a wide range of award options, including fitness classes through Soul Cycle, Y7 Studio, or Rumble; quality art and merchandise through the Bilt Collection; covering rent payments through Bilt or towards a future down payment; as statement credits; or as points transfers to over a dozen partners. This puts Bilt Rewards consistently among the most valuable credit card points programs.
