Bilt keeps the amazing offers coming for their Rent Day promotions. This time it is a 100% bonus on transfers from Bilt Rewards to Air France KLM Flying Blue on May 1st.
If you are not familiar with Bilt’s Rent Day promotions they are an offer provided either for their credit card holders and/or Bilt Rewards members on the first day of the month, which is typically rent day for most people who rent.
That leads us to rent day for May where Bilt Rewards members will be able to transfer points to Air France KLM’s Flying Blue program with a 100% bonus. Normally points transfer 1:1 to Flying Blue so for this one day only, members will receive 2 miles for every 1 Bilt Rewards point.
This is significant as Air France KLM Flying is the go to program for Transatlantic economy class reward flights. The program is really unmatched as they have reward flights starting as low as 15,000 miles one way from the Eastern U.S. and 20,000 miles from the Western U.S. to Europe, Turkey and North Africa. Even for Business Class they are no slouch either with mileage requirements comparable to Aeroplan and Executive Club.
What makes Flying Blue even more attractive are their monthly Flying Blue Promo Rewards. These are discounts of 25% to 50% off rewards on select routes each month and for May there will be a great selection out of the U.S.:
- Atlanta: 25% off economy or business on Air France
- Newark 25% off premium economy or business on Air France
- Dallas: 25% off economy or business on Air France
- Washington Dulles: 25% off economy, premium economy or business on Air France and 25% off economy on KLM
- Houston: 25% off economy, premium economy and business on both Air France and KLM
- Boston: 25% off economy on Air France or KLM
- Austin: 25% off economy on KLM
- Chicago: 25% off economy on KLM
- Los Angeles: 25% off economy on KLM
- Miami: 25% off economy on Air France

So if you take a city like Boston, which starts at 15,000 miles in Economy you are looking at 11,250 miles one way – or with this Bilt Rent Day offer only 6,000 Bilt Rewards points!
You could even convert now to hold onto your Flying Blue miles for future Promo Rewards at 50% off. For example right now during April 2023 there is 50% off economy class flights from Montreal which makes those flights only 7,500 Flying Blue miles each way.
What is also significant with Flying Blue is that economy class reward tickets from North America include your first checked bag for free.
The Promo Rewards listed above can be booked anytime from May 1 to May 30 for travel until October 31 but remember the bonus from Bilt to Flying Blue is only available on May 1.
