Bilt Rewards Adds Bilt Dining (Expanded)

Update: Bilt Rewards has significantly expanded this program by adding restaurants from both Seated and Rewards Network dining. Hat tip to VFTW.

Bilt Rewards has added a new program called Bilt dining. Members receive 5x bilt points when eating at restaurants participating in the program. You can use any Mastercard, Visa or American Express card.

It currently operates in:

  • New York City
  • Boston
  • Atlanta
  • Dallas
  • Chicago

You also earn 100 Bilt points per linked card for your first 3 eligible cards (this isn’t listed anywhere that I can see, but is part of the marketing materials that was sent to me). It’s unclear if this is running on top of rewards network or any other similar card linked programs.

Only downside would be there’s no 5x potential like most mileage programs or even Rakuten that can do 5x MR.

Strange that BILT card-linking program requires my CVV. I would highly avoid this.

Nope, and you can add 3 credit cards to bump your Bilt points 3 x 100

I haven’t done anything with BILT yet. What’s the first thing to do?

Ask me for a referral and open a credit card.
Later do 5 transactions per statement cycle to get 1x on rent, 2x on travel, 3x on dining.

How do the points compare to UR or MR?

Not as many as UR or MR but still free card and good for rent payers who get nothing.

They post Hyatt within 2 hours, versus UR which takes 2-3 days.

Transferring UR’s to Hyatt definitely does not take 2-3 days. Maybe your first transfer (I don’t believe mine even took that long), but after that it should be instant.

UR to Hyatt always takes at least 36 hours for me. Meanwhile, it’s instant for my wife. No idea why and annoying for me, but them’s the breaks!

Transferring UR to Hyatt has almost been instant every time I’ve used it. Maybe you caught them at a bad time.

As for the list, a bit dated as it is missing the Alaska Airlines as a transfer partner. AAdvantage is going away sometime in June I believe.

not worth it for 3 dollars worth of points

There is messaging about the 100 points within the Bilt mobile app. Within the Bilt app, go to wallet, then scroll down to Link additional card and you should see a message: “Bonus: Earn 100 points for each card you link to your Bilt Wallet, up to three cards.”

I see. You have to update the app to get Wallet.

Getting “Whoops!

Same here. Couldn’t add the Sapphire Preferred or Amex Green. Going to contact Bilt to resolve.
