Bilt is back with another Rent Day offer and this one is a bit complicated and gimmicky. From today through February 29th, members will vote on the benefits they’d like to see for March 1st in a March Madness-style tournament with benefits squaring off for the most votes. This is not as exciting as past partner transfer offers, but could yield some interesting benefits.

Each month, Bilt 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.” Bilt’s next Rent Day occurs on Friday, March 1st. Bilt is a great program with lots of transfer partners and these Rent Day promos make it even sweeter. I am using the Bilt Mastercard® to pay rent on my winter place in Florida again and love it.

Bilt Brackets

Bilt members will pick from each of the face-offs above. Potential Rent Day benefits are going head to head in a bracket format with members voting on the winners from each “round” today, tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week (February 26th through February 29th) to choose the Rent Day benefits for March 1st. Interestingly, Bilt Blue and Silver members will have access to the winning offer from the bracket, while Bilt Gold and Platinum members will have access to the winning offer and the runner up.

Bilt Point Quest

Point Quest™

Point Quest™ is Bilt’s trivia game (found in the app). You answer questions and can win 30 points per question for the first five, plus 100 if you answer a sixth correctly. I’ve been doing pretty well the past few months and earning all 250 points. The only disappointing part here is that the points you can earn continue to drop month after month.

Anthony’s Take: I look forward to the games and bonuses offered on Rent Day each month. Bilt makes paying bills fun and the points earned are valuable given the number of transfer partners that Bilt currently offers. This month is kind of tame compared to past opportunities. We’ll see what wins.
