Bilt has made a habit out of interesting offers on the first of every month (dubbed “Rent Day”).  Not every offer applies to every member, but they’ve done something few loyalty programs succeed at.  They keep members interested in what’s next.

This month, Bilt Rewards has two new offerings. First, you can help shape this month’s Rent Day promotion by voting in the Bilt Bracket.  From 15X on hotel bookings to bigger bonuses when you link a credit card with your Bilt Rewards account, there are a total of 16 potential offers:

Bilt Offering March Madness Tickets

Even more exciting (IMO) is the opportunity to score Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight and Final Four tickets by redeeming Bilt Rewards points.  Equally disappointing is that I transferred my entire Bilt balance back in January for the great promotion they had to start the year.  Alas, I’ll be sitting this offer out.  But, starting at noon ET on March 1st, you’ll have an opportunity to redeem your Bilt points for March Madness tickets, starting for as little as 15,000 points.  Again, status pays dividends as elite members get a head start:

  • Platinum Status Members will have first access at 12:00pm ET
  • Gold Status Members will unlock early access at 12:30pm ET
  • Silver Status Members receive access at 1:00pm ET
  • Blue Status Members will receive access at 1:30pm ET

All The Rest Of Rent Day

Bilt also has a number of offers on the first of each month to earn points. Most of them only require you to sign-up for a free Bilt Rewards membership.  There are trivia questions in the Bilt app where you can earn free points as well as their game show-style contest, Rent Free where you can earn one month’s free rent.

For folks who hold the credit card, this is your reminder that you can earn double points on all categories (except rent) on the first day of every month (capped at 10,000 bonus points per month).  That means you’ll earn:

  • 6 points per dollar on dining
  • 4 points per dollar on travel
  • 2 points per dollar on everything else (except rent)

You can also grab a free Soulcycle class on March 1st at more than 50 Soulcycle studios across the US.  Reservations are available in the Bilt app starting on February 28th, 2024 at noon ET.

The Final Two Pennies

It may not be a 150% transfer bonus like what I took advantage of in January, but the March rent day offer is fun and engaging.  I’ve always enjoyed when programs do things to keep their programs engaging.  Voting over the next few days on the Rent Day offers will be fun.  I only wish I had enough Bilt Rewards points left to grab some March Madness tickets!
