The only program that allows you to earn rewards while paying rent, Bilt continues to build an impressive portfolio of partners. Marriott joins the Bilt transfer portal with two other hotel programs: World of Hyatt and IHG One Rewards. Bilt Rewards also transfer to a dozen airline programs like American Airlines AAdvantage and United Airlines MileagePlus, among others.
This keen move opens up over 30 Marriott hotel brands and 10,000 destinations worldwide. While Hyatt is wildly popular among award travelers, its reach is considerably smaller compared to what Marriott offers. This might strike a chord with those on the fence about whether or not it’s time to take the leap and apply for the Bilt World Elite Mastercard®.
Marriott properties span the spectrum from budget to bougie and everything in between. While Marriott ditched its award chart, rooms can still be found at reasonable rates—and when combined with benefits like the fifth night free on award stays, points can go even further.
To kick off the new partnership, Bilt members can earn 100 Bilt points just for linking their Bilt and Marriott Bonvoy accounts in the Bilt Rewards app.
