What is Bilt?

Bilt is the leading rewards platform in housing that provides innovative payment services to real estate property managers and their tenants. Bilt has partnered with Mastercard to create the first credit card that lets you earn points on rent with no fees. In addition, we’ve created a best-in-class loyalty program for the next generation of renters and homebuyers. With Bilt, renters can finally earn rewards on their largest expense, and get the benefit of having their timely rent payments reflected in their credit scores. They can then redeem rewards points towards travel, home decor and even a down payment on a home. We’re making renting rewarding while paving a path to homeownership for our generation.
