I’ve been using the Bilt Mastercard® to pay my rent in Florida and love that there are no fees to do so. Each month, Bilt also makes the first of the month fun. It offers bonus opportunities, chances to win points playing a trivia game, and even a contest to win free rent (up to $2,500) for what it calls “Rent Day.” Now, Bilt Rewards has announced a new partnership with the urban air mobility platform (a fancy way to say helicopters) that offers members discounts and other perks at certain elite levels.

BLADE Ground 3

I flew BLADE back in August to New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) (full review here) and found the experience fun and a huge timesaver. It’s not cheap, but it was a great way to avoid traffic. With this new partnership, I hope to fly them again soon. A BLADE booking platform will be added to the Bilt Rewards app soon.

BLADE Lounge 2

Bilt Rewards members who pay their BLADE bookings with a credit card linked to their Bilt account will earn 2x bonus Bilt points per $1 spent.

BLADE Bilt

Elite members receive even more benefits by tier. Here is the breakdown:

  • Bilt Silver members save 10% off BLADE airport flights booked through the Bilt app or website
  • Bilt Gold members save 10% off BLADE airport flights plus they receive access to BLADE lounges even when they’re not flying (when not flying beverages are limited to two)
  • Bilt Platinum members also receive one free BLADE flight between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) or New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Manhattan (or between Nice and Monaco)

These are great perks for Bilt members with elite status. I’m currently Gold and pushing to Platinum this year. This is another great partnership that Bilt has secured and the brand just keeps adding value for members. If you’re looking to use BLADE for the first time, use my referral code: ANTHONYL325 to get $50 off your first flight.

Anthony’s Take: I find BLADE to be one of the most convenient ways to get to the airport when in NYC. I can’t wait to try BLADE again and appreciate the discount. I’m not sure I’d go to the lounge when not flying, but it’s a cool perk.
