Bilt Rewards has stormed onto the scene in the last year, making its mark as the only transferrable points program that allows you to earn points on monthly rent payments. But Bilt keeps pushing the envelope even further with interesting new offers and promos – and this might be the best one yet.

Starting today, Oct. 27, you can unlock complimentary United Premier Silver or Gold elite status for 120 days just for being a Bilt Rewards Member … even if you just sign up for a free Bilt account. From there, there's a fairly easy path to extend United status all the way through January 2024. This is from the November edition of its new Bilt Rent Day promos, and it's available for enrollment until 11:59 p.m. PST on Nov. 1.

Just what tier of United elite status you'll get depends on what kind of Bilt account you've got. Everyday Bilt Blue members are eligible for United Premier Silver Status. To get United Premier Gold Status for four-plus months, you'll need to have a Bilt Silver, Gold, or Platinum membership. Those require earning 25,000, 50,000, and 100,000 total points to qualify each year, respectively – you can earn them by paying rent and with the *Bilt Mastercard*.

But even at the lowest tier, there are some solid benefits available flying United just for having a free Bilt Rewards account. Here's a look at what you get.

  • So…new Bilt members would only receive Silver status and have virtually no shot at Gold status, since they couldn’t accrue 25,000 Bilt points by Nov. 1?
    Also…I assume the PQPs and PQFs must be achieved within the 4 month period to extend status. Meaning, no one would get Silver status for 4 months, and then, if they achieved the PQPs and PQFs say, 6 months after registering and unlocking status, they wouldn’t magically receive Gold status through Jan. 2024 after about 2 months of having no status.

  • Has anyone received the premier status email yet? I might be early and impatient lol but I need to buy a flight for early December on United and want to use the perks!

    • Bilt has said the status challenge should begin within 14 days of the Nov. 1 enrollment deadline, so hold tight!
