If you rent outside of the Bilt Rewards Alliance, you can pay rent directly through your property’s online payment portal without fees by using a Bilt Rent Account. For this payment method, we’ll generate a unique routing and account number for you to use in your resident portal. Whenever your unique routing and account numbers are used to pay rent, we’ll charge your Bilt Mastercard for the same amount. That way, you earn points on rent without paying the processing fees normally associated with using a credit card in an online payment portal!
You can also use BiltProtect to immediately pay off any rent charges on your Bilt Mastercard Statement, keeping more of your credit line available for everything else. To set up your Bilt Rent Account, head to the Bilt Rewards app, select the ‘Pay Rent’ tab, tap ‘Set up online payments’ and follow the prompts. You can also check out this editorial for step-by-step instructions.
There are a few more things to know:
- Usage of the Bilt Rent Account is only for rent and rent-related payments in your online portal to earn points on your rent transaction and avoid credit card fees. You should never deposit or transfer funds to your Bilt Rent Account.
- You can use your physical Bilt Mastercard anywhere Mastercard is accepted, but the Bilt Rent Account is just for rent and rent-related charges
- If you have the available credit to charge the rent amount to your Bilt Mastercard (BiltProtect Debit is toggled off), the amount owed will be charged to your credit card balance. You can make a payment towards your credit card balance in the Card tab of the Bilt Rewards app by tapping Manage/Pay Card.
- If you receive a refund for a rent payment using the Bilt Rent Account, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to help you.
