Update 3/1/23: These Bilt Rent Day promotions are live for today (March 1) only.

Bilt Rewards has announced its Rent Day promos for March 1, 2023. The headliner of the monthly promotion is that Bilt cardholders will be get a 50% bonus towards redeeming points for Amazon purchases. That sounds great on the surface, but Bilt Rewards redeem at only 0.7 cents each at Amazon, so the 50% bonus will push it up to only 1.05 cents each, well below our Reasonable Redemption Value of 1.55 cents each for Bilt Points.

In addition, Bilt cardholders will once again have the opportunity to earn 2x points on purchases and will be able to bring a friend to SoulCycle on the 1st of the month. The Points Quest Trivia Show will also be back again.

For more information about Bilt, including details of the rent rewards program and the Bilt Mastercard, see our Bilt Rewards Complete Guide.

Quick Thoughts

Last month Bilt had a very good Rent Day promo: a 100% transfer bonus to Hawaiian Airlines. This month isn’t nearly as exciting. While a 50% bonus sound great, Bilt’s standard rate for Amazon redemptions is a measly 0.7 cents each. Because of that, the promo will only elevate them to 1.05 cents of value towards Amazon purchases, well below what could be had by transferring them to travel partners.

There might be folks out there who have millions of Bilt Points to burn. For them, the opportunity to redeem some of them for Amazon purchases at ~1 cent each could be appealing. For the rest of us with modest balances, it probably won’t move the needle much.

The normal 2x Rent Day spending offer makes the 1st of the month the ideal time to hit your 5 transaction minimum in order to earn points on rent and/or all of your card purchases, so don’t forget to bust it out on next Wednesday if you’re a cardholder.

I need to give Bilt a second look after the death of the Plastiq-Amex relationship.


BILT only had 5 questions at 50 points each this month and I suppose there was a bonus for getting all 5 right. I only got 2 since I couldn’t care less about pop culture. I got them all right last month though!


Lol I messed up on French Doors…who knew??!


Hi Tim–I think your numbers may be off. From the March Rent Day Terms: “Bilt Rewards members will receive 50 Bilt Points for each correct answer to questions 1-5 in Point Quest. If all 5 questions are answered correctly, members will be eligible for an 6th bonus question. Members will receive 100 Bilt Points if they answer the bonus question correctly.”

Also @Pam–where did you find that there is a 250 point bonus for linking a Bilt card to Amazon?


Separate email from Bilt to cardholders(?)

Btw, I received last Fri – includes a link to Amazon (to then link your cc).

Thanks Pam. I received e-mails from Bilt on February 24 and February 27 (as well as today), and as best as I can tell, none mentioned those 250 points. Also checked and my Bilt card is not linked to Amazon. Can’t find any reference in the March Rent Day terms. Maybe targeted–if so, you win!


How odd! This specific email came from members@members.biltrewards.com (and not rentday@biltrewards.com) if that makes any difference in how you search?


Hi DSK, you’re probs correct was targeted but anyway just a DP I received the 250 points advertised for linking with Amazon (nothing extra like last yr tho for purchasing). Thanks & have a great weekend


“ you can earn 250 bonus Bilt Points when you link your card on Amazon.com”

Worth $4-5 of Hyatt/AA points!

Also, “ On March 1st only, all (Bilt Collection) items will be 50% off.”
