Trammell Crow Residential announced today the launch of a new partnership with Bilt Rewards to offer the first and only rewards program for residents to earn points on rent. Bilt Rewards will begin the roll-out to all of Trammell Crow Residential’s rental units across the United States, starting today.
Residents at any Trammell Crow Residential property are invited to join this free program. Once enrolled, members will earn points by paying rent through the Bilt app and collecting additional points through property and Bilt Rewards-specific promotions.
Additionally, Trammell Crow Residential residents will be among the first to receive an invitation for the Bilt Mastercard – an extension of Bilt Rewards and the first credit card that allows users to pay their rent with no fee. With the card, renters can also earn points on non-rent purchases, enabling them to maximize rewards potential.
“TCR is excited to offer our residents not only an easier way to pay their rent, but the opportunity to enhance their credit profile and participate in the Bilt Rewards Program,” says Kevin Dinnie, COO of TCR. “We are thrilled to partner with Bilt to provide this amenity for residents.”
“Rent is the single largest expense for the vast majority of Americans. Until today, rent has been the only major expense you couldn’t earn points through, and over a renter’s lifetime that’s thousands and thousands of dollars that they’ve never been able to earn something back on,” says Bilt CEO and Founder Ankur Jain. “With the launch of the new Bilt Rewards program, renters will now be able to travel, shop, or even start thinking about purchasing a future home just by paying their rent.”
Points earned through Bilt Rewards and Bilt Mastercard are redeemable for a variety of rewards including: one-to-one point transfers for travel across over 100 major airlines and hotel partners; fitness classes at the country’s top boutique studios including SoulCycle, Rumble and Y7; limited-edition and exclusive collections of art and home decor through the Bilt Collection; and can even be used towards rent credits or a future down payment.
