Yes! If you rent outside of the Bilt Rewards Alliance, you can use Bilt to earn points on rent if you apply and get approved for the Bilt Mastercard®. As long as your landlord accepts checks or uses an online payment portal, you can use the Bilt Mastercard to pay your rent outside of the Bilt Rewards Alliance.
With the Bilt Mastercard, you’ll earn 1X points on rent payments without the transaction fee (up to 100,000 points per calendar year), 2X points on travel, and 3X points on dining. You’ll also earn 1X on other purchases*. Cardholders need to use the card 5 times each statement period to earn points.
*When you make at least 5 transactions in a statement period using your Bilt Mastercard, you’ll earn points on rent and qualifying net purchases (purchases minus returns /credits) for that statement period. Rent: You'll earn 1 rewards point per $1 spent on rent paid through the Bilt App with your card account up to a maximum of One Hundred Thousand (100,000) points each calendar year. If your rent payment is less than $250, you will earn 250 points for that rent payment. Rent payments can only be made to one rental property per month. Travel: 2 rewards points (1 base point plus 1 bonus point) are earned per $1 spent on qualifying net purchases made directly at retailers whose Merchant Code for Mastercard is classified as airlines, hotels, motels, resorts, cruise lines, and car rental agencies. Dining: 3 rewards points (1 base point plus 2 bonus points) are earned per $1 spent on qualifying net purchases at retailers whose Merchant Code for Mastercard is classified as eating places and restaurants, drinking places, bakeries, or fast food restaurants. Purchases not processed using the Merchant Codes for Mastercard mentioned above will not qualify for bonus points. Wells Fargo does not have the ability to control how a retailer chooses to classify their business and therefore reserves the right to determine which purchases qualify for bonus points. You may not earn bonus points for purchases made through third-party payment accounts, at online marketplaces, with retailers who submit purchases using a mobile/wireless card reader, or if you use a mobile or digital wallet. Other purchases: 1 rewards point will be earned per $1 spent on other qualifying net purchases. If you do not make at least 5 transactions in a statement period you’ll earn a flat 250 points when you use your Bilt Mastercard to pay rent through the Bilt App. ATM charges, cash advances, traveler’s checks, money orders, pre-paid gift cards, Balance Transfers, SUPERCHECKS™, wire transfers, fees or interest posted to your card account such as returned payment fees, late fees, monthly or annual fees, bets or wagers transmitted over the internet, and casino gaming do not earn points.
