There's been a lot of talk around Bilt Rewards, the relatively new loyalty program that lets renters earn points on rent payments. Bilt also offers the Bilt Mastercard, which allows you to earn 3 points per dollar on dining, 2 points per dollar on travel and 1 point per dollar on all other purchases.

Editor’s note: TPG founder Brian Kelly is a Bilt advisor and investor.

Bilt Rewards points can be transferred to 11 travel partners. Some noteworthy transfer partners include American AAdvantage, United MileagePlus and World of Hyatt.

Now, when you link your AAdvantage account to your Bilt Rewards account by April 15, you'll receive 500 Bilt Rewards points. This promotion was first reported by Danny the Deal Guru.

This offer is available to all Bilt Rewards members who haven't previously linked their AAdvantage account to Bilt. It's also worth noting that the offer doesn't require you to transfer any Bilt points to AAdvantage, nor is this offer only available to new AAdvantage members. You simply provide Bilt with your AAdvantage account information.

You can also earn 100 bonus points for every loyalty program you link with Bilt. By taking advantage of this AAdvantage offer and linking the 10 other Bilt transfer partners, you will earn 1,500 Bilt Rewards points (worth $27 by TPG's valuations).

How to link your AAdvantage account to Bilt

To add your AAdvantage account, open the Bilt app and tap the "Flights" button at the top of the screen. Then, you will see all of Bilt's airline transfer partners. Tap the "Link" button under the American AAdvantage logo and follow the on-screen prompts to connect your account to Bilt.
