Awesome offer: Earn up to Hyatt Globalist through Feb. 2025 with Bilt Rent Day status challenge

28 March 2023

Editor’s note: TPG founder Brian Kelly is a Bilt adviser and investor. We’ve updated this post with the most recent promotion.

Bilt Rewards is back with several Rent Day promotions for April 1. You can enroll in a World of Hyatt status trial and challenge, earn Bilt points through trivia, enjoy double Bilt points on non-rent purchases and more.

Here’s what you need to know about April’s Rent Day if you participate in the Bilt Rewards program.

World of Hyatt trial and challenge


Between March 28 and April 1, Bilt members — including those without the Bilt Mastercard® (see rates and fees) — can register for a 90-day World of Hyatt Explorist trial.

During the 90-day trial period — which will last from April 17 to July 16 — you can earn World of Hyatt status through Feb. 2025 if you complete the following tasks:

Explorist: Stay 10 qualifying nights.
Globalist: Stay 20 qualifying nights.

If you aren’t a member, you’ll first need to join the World of Hyatt program. You’ll also need to link your Bilt Rewards and Hyatt accounts in the Bilt app under the “Travel” tab. Then, between March 28 and April 1, open the Bilt app and select “Unlock World of Hyatt Elite Status” on the Rent Day tab.

If you do so, you’ll get confirmation that you enrolled in the trial by April 17. Then you’ll enjoy World of Hyatt Explorist perks between April 17 and July 16. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to earn World of Hyatt status through Feb. 2025 based on the qualifying nights you complete between those two dates. You must check out of a stay by July 16 for it to count; qualifying nights completed before April 17 or after July 16 will not count.

A Bilt spokesperson confirmed that award nights qualify, and current World of Hyatt elite members are eligible. However, you can’t match the trial Explorist status to MGM Rewards Gold and won’t earn Hyatt milestone rewards unless you stay the required number of nights for those milestones.

If you decide to utilize this trial, check out the terms and conditions to ensure you don’t accidentally miss out.

Earn Bilt points through trivia


If you’re good at trivia, you can boost your Bilt Rewards balance on April 1.

Bilt Rewards will give its members five trivia questions through its app on April 1. You’ll get 50 points per correct answer. And, if you get all five questions correct, Bilt will unlock a sixth question worth an extra 100 points.

You could earn 350 Bilt points through trivia on April 1 if you get all six questions correct.

Double Bilt points on non-rent purchases


As on previous Bilt Rent Days, you’ll earn double points when you use your Bilt Mastercard® to make non-rent purchases between midnight EST and 11:59 p.m. PST on April 1 (see rates and fees). You’ll earn as follows for purchases you make on Rent Day:

Dining: 6 points per dollar spent.
Travel: 4 points per dollar spent.
Other purchases (excluding rent): 2 points per dollar spent.
Rent: 1 point per dollar spent.

You can earn up to 10,000 bonus points during the April 1 Rent Day. However, remember you must use your Bilt Mastercard at least five times each statement period to earn points.

If you are currently earning bonus Bilt points through a promotion — such as the 5X for 5 Days promotion or a category-specific or merchant-specific points promotion — you may not be eligible for double points on Rent Day.
