New York, NY, April 19, 2024 - Bilt Rewards, the nation's leading payments and rewards platform, today announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with Blade Air Mobility, Inc. (“BLADE”).

Starting April 11th, Bilt Members will receive 2x bonus Bilt Points for every dollar spent on any BLADE booking using their debit or credit card linked to their Bilt account. These bonus points are in addition to any rewards offered by the payment card.

All three levels of Bilt Rewards Elite Members will receive additional benefits:

Bilt Members can easily book BLADE airport flights via the Bilt Rewards app and website, where applicable discounts and benefits will be displayed in the checkout process. The discount will automatically apply, and Platinum Members can redeem any free flight credits.

Bilt Platinum Members will receive one (1) BLADE basic ticket for one seat on any regularly scheduled BLADE Airport or BLADE Line flight. Platinum members will receive one airport flight credit per occurrence of qualifying for Bilt Platinum status.

“New York has one of the greatest skylines in the entire world and now courtesy of BLADE, our Members can enjoy the best view of it on their next ride to the airport,” said Ankur Jain, Bilt Rewards CEO and President. “This is just another exciting way Bilt Members can get rewarded just by paying their rent and spending in their local neighborhood.” 

All BLADE flights booked via the Bilt app or website or booked with Bilt benefits will operate under BLADE’s standard cancellation and change policies.
