Bilt Rewards is a new loyalty program for renters. Just joining lets you earn points for paying rent via electronic funds transfer. And they have a no annual fee Mastercard that earns points for paying rent, as well as bonus points on travel and dining. Their points transfer to American Airlines, Hyatt, and several other programs.
The program launched over the summer and most people have to ‘waitlist’ in order to join. It turns out, I’m told, that only a few people have been processed off of the waitlist. That’s supposed to change in batches over the coming months.
However you can skip the waitlist, join right away, and start earning points. And you can be among the first with access to their new no annual fee card offering points for paying rent, bonus points on travel and dining, and premium Mastercard protections that many cards now lack.
To be clear I do not receive any sort of referral credit. I spoke with the folks at Bilt and they shared a code that I have permission to offer readers that skips the waitlist entirely: VFTW4BILT.
You can go to BiltRewards.com/waitlist, enter your email to joint the waitlist, and you’ll be asked if you have a fast track code. VFTW4BILT will take you right in.
If you pay rent, you’ll want to be a member of this program (timely rent payments can actually be reported to credit agencies, potentially improving your credit score too). And this gets you immediate access instead of having to wait months to be invited off their waitlist.
