Bilt Rewards, the program that allows you to earn points by paying rent, has exciting news to share. Marriott Bonvoy, the hotel mega-chain with over 30 hotel brands and properties in 10,000 destinations worldwide, has become Bilt's 15th transfer partner.
Here's what you need to know about transferring points from Bilt Rewards to Marriott Bonvoy.
You can transfer Bilt points to Marriott Bonvoy at a 1:1 ratio. Plus, for every 20,000 Bilt points you transfer to Marriott Bonvoy in a single transaction, you'll receive an additional 5,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
Although Bilt anticipates most transfers to Marriott Bonvoy will be nearly instantaneous, it can take up to 48 hours for your points to reflect in your Marriott account. To note, 48 hours is notably longer than Bilt's other transfer partners, which currently process within minutes. The only exception is American Airlines AAdvantage, which can take up to 24 hours.
As with Bilt's other transfer partners, you can earn 100 points simply by linking your Bilt and Marriott Bonvoy accounts in the Bilt Rewards app.

Since TPG values Bilt points at 2.05 cents and Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.84 cents, you generally won't want to transfer Bilt points to Marriott, even if you unlock the 5,000-point bonus for transferring 20,000 Bilt points in a single transaction.
You can redeem Bilt points at 1.25 cents apiece through the Bilt travel portal. Though you generally won't earn Marriott points or receive elite status benefits, this route might provide a better redemption rate for a Marriott stay.
For more redemption value, check World of Hyatt award rates. TPG values Hyatt points at 1.7 cents each. Plus, Hyatt waives the destination or resort fee on award stays without cutting the fee inclusions, meaning guests can still enjoy perks like free Wi-Fi and use of beach chairs, depending on the property.

Transfers from Bilt Rewards to Marriott Bonvoy are now live. However, this option isn't the best use of your Bilt points, in our opinion.
As a reminder, the Bilt Mastercard® has no annual fee (see rates and fees) and earns 3 points per dollar spent on dining, 2 points per dollar spent on travel, 1 point per dollar spent on other purchases and 1 point per dollar spent on rent payments without the transaction fee (up to 100,000 points each calendar year). When you make at least five posted transactions in a statement period using your Bilt Mastercard, you'll earn points on rent and qualifying net purchases.
