Bilt Rewards, the start-up that allows renters to earn transferrable points on rent, is gearing up for the Nov. 1 edition of its monthly Rent Day promotion.

This time, members will earn double points on all non-rent purchases for 24 hours, be able to register for a United Airlines Premier elite status challenge and bring a companion to a SoulCycle class for free.

Some of the festivities start tomorrow, Oct. 27, in the Bilt Rewards app. Let’s take a closer look.

Double Bilt points

Bilt Rewards points can be transferred to American Airlines AAdvantage to book Flagship First. KYLE OLSEN/THE POINTS GUY

From 12:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. ET on Nov. 1, Bilt cardholders will earn double points on all purchases, excluding rent. When you use your Bilt Mastercard during this window, you'll earn the following:

  • Dining: 6 points per $1 (regularly 3 points per $1).
  • Travel: 4 points per $1 (regularly 2 points per $1).
  • All other spend, excluding rent: 2 points per $1 (regularly 1 point per $1).

You can earn up to 10,000 bonus points during this promotion. Cardholders who pay their rent during this time will continue to earn the standard 1 point per $1 spent.
