May 2023 Bilt Rent Day: 100% Flying Blue Transfer Bonus, Free Points and More

Bilt Rent Day is almost here and Bilt has now revealed an awesome new promotion for members on May 1st. The Rent Day promotion has already brought us a Hyatt status challenge, and 100% transfer bonuses for HawaiianMiles and IHG. And now the details of the May 2023 Bilt Rent Day promotion have just been revealed, and it’s another 100% transfer bonus that can be quite lucrative.

As a reminder, it is free to sign up for Bilt Rewards and take advantage of these promotions. You can also get free points every month, extra points on dining and more. Then there’s the Bilt Mastercard that can earn you tons of points on rent, an double points every first of the month. Now let’s get into this latest transfer bonus and the other deals for the May 2023 Bilt Rent Day.

This Rent Day, Bilt has teamed up with Flying Blue (the joint loyalty program for Air France and KLM) for a one-day, Bilt exclusive benefit: Book flights to Europe for half the points. On May 1st, Bilt Points will be worth double when transferred to Flying Blue (1 Bilt Point = 2 Flying Blue Miles). That’s a 100% transfer bonus available only on May 1st.

To make this even sweeter, Bilt members will be able to combine this with any of our Rent Day × Flying Blue Promo Routes to Europe and book for even fewer points, with flights starting at less than 6,000 Bilt Points each way. The Flying Blue May Promo Routes can be booked from May 1-May 31 for travel from May 1-October 31.
