Update 2/1/24: This massive transfer bonus from Bilt to Aeroplan is now live, as are the rest of the Rent Day promos.

Bilt continues to surprise and delight with its monthly Rent Day promos. Last Month, they offered a 75%-150% transfer bonus to both Virgin Atlantic and Flying Blue, as well as IHG.

How could February’s Rent Day top that? I’ll tell you how: a 75%-150% transfer bonus to Air Canada Aeroplan, one of our favorite airline programs.

Quick Thoughts

With its impressive array of partners, competitive rates and flexible routing, Aeroplan is an excellent rewards program. Normally, we don’t advocate speculatively transferring flexible points to fixed airline or hotel programs, as it puts you at the mercy of future availability and/or devaluation. That said, a 75% bonus to Aeroplan is almost a no-brainer, regardless of whether or not you have an immediate use for the points. I’ll certainly be taking advantage of it, even though I only have ~10,000 Bilt points.

Aeroplan is also a 1-1 transfer partner of American Express, Capital One and Chase. This makes it fairly easy to supplement the points transferred from Bilt with some from another source to reach a useful award.

The rest of the promotions are the usual Rent Day fare. For cardholders, the Rent Day double spending offers make the 1st of the month the ideal time to hit your 5 transaction minimum in order to earn points on rent and card purchases. So, don’t forget to bust it out on February 1st.

Best Uses of Air Canada Aeroplan

  • Add Stopovers for 5,000 miles: There's great value in the Aeroplan due to the ability to add a stopover on a one-way award for 5,000 additional miles, making it possible to combine two destinations on one award.
  • Lap Infants: Lap infants are just $25 CAD or 2,500 miles per direction (far cheaper than what most programs charge).
  • Travel within US and Canada: Aeroplan charges 6K to 22.5K miles each way in economy class or as low as 15K miles each way in business class within US and Canada
  • Business Class to Asia and the South Pacific: Flights to Asia and South Pacific range from 55K-105K one-way in business class (plus 5K miles for a stopover), which can be a particularly good value for awards combining Asia and the South Pacific in one itinerary.
  • Business Class to Africa (with a stopover in Europe): Flights to Africa can vary between from 60K to 100K in business class based on distance (add 5K miles for a stopover within Africa or Europe).
  • Explore remote Canada for far less (Northwest territories for cheap!). In some cases, Air Canada only charges 12.5K miles one-way to remote stretches of Canada. See more here.

Can you transfer to another persons loyalty account? Thanks


Anyone know—does this transfer have to be done in 1,000 mile increments? (I.e., do I need to earn another 320 Bilt points by Feb 1st to be able to use all my points?)

Nick Reyes

If you have no status with Bilt, the minimum transfer for all partners is 2,000 Bilt points.

Nick Reyes

Oh and then yes, in 1K point increments.


Also in Bilt news, it put out a statement Wednesday saying (among other things) “Additionally, Bilt plans to venture into mortgage payment rewards.” No specifics.

Nick Reyes

I think they’ve always been aware that there is a market there but there was no need for them to rush — better to build something successful, then expand it rather than trying to do everything at once.


Yep – but unless you know something differently, this is the first time they’ve put out something public that’s this definitive on points for mortgage payments. It’s still not super concrete and there is no time frame, but I’ve always heard Richard Kerr answer the question more along the lines of “maybe someday, we know there is a lot of interest.” Not “stay tuned” or “not yet, but it’s a priority”. Maybe nothing will come of it before I get my mortgage paid off (good problem to have!), but this change – even if 0.5 Bilt points per dollar – would be a game changer for a lot of the FM audience if Bilt allows payment on any mortgage like they do with rent.


Wake up and smell the coffee, people.
