Bilt Rewards adds Hilton Honors as a new transfer partner


Bilt Rewards members can now transfer points to Hilton Honors at a 1:1 ratio. With this news, Bilt members can transfer points to four of the most popular hotel loyalty programs in the U.S. After all, Bilt members could already transfer points to World of Hyatt, IHG One Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy at a 1:1 ratio.

Head to the Travel tab in the Bilt Rewards app to link your Hilton Honors account with your Bilt account and transfer points in increments of 1,000. Bilt elite members can transfer as few as 1,000 Bilt Points per transfer, but Bilt Blue tier members must transfer at least 2,000 Bilt Points per transfer.

A Bilt spokesperson told TPG via email that members should watch for “additional benefits and promotions between Hilton Honors and Bilt Rewards as this week is just the start of our partnership.” To celebrate the kickoff of this partnership, Bilt members who transfer points to Hilton Honors by June 8 will get 1,000 bonus Hilton points on their first transfer.

Of course, just because you can transfer Bilt points to Hilton Honors doesn’t mean you should. TPG’s valuations peg the value of Hilton points at 0.6 cents each and Bilt points at 2.05 cents each. This means that for every Bilt point you transfer to Hilton, you’re losing about 1.45 cents in value.

As such, most Bilt members will get more value from transferring their points to higher-value transfer partners such as World of Hyatt when they want to book a hotel. That said, transferring Bilt points to Hilton could make sense if you need a few more points for a Hilton redemption or you’re booking a high-value Hilton award stay. Remember, though, that there are many other ways to earn Hilton points.

Bottom line

It’s always good when a transferable points currency adds more transfer partners. Bilt has added to its transfer partner roster several times within the last year. However, most Bilt members will get more value when transfering their points to other Bilt transfer partners.
