Renters and cardholders can now shop millions of items using Bilt points at participating online marketplaces
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / August 10, 2022 /
Engage People, the only loyalty network that enables program members to pay with points (PwP) directly at checkout, today announced it is teaming up with Bilt Rewards, the leading loyalty program for renters, to allow Bilt Mastercard holders to pay with points at participating online marketplaces.
Through this partnership, Bilt Rewards members holding a Bilt Mastercard will gain access to PwP capabilities, allowing them to increase the ubiquity of their points by using them for everyday purchases online. Engage People’s Access Network platform will serve as the engine powering the program.
“We’re proud to serve as Bilt’s PwP provider, and we’re looking forward to delivering innovative ways for renters holding a Bilt Mastercard to shop online,” said Jonathan Silver, CEO of Engage People. “As inflation rates continue to rise, these types of partnerships serve to bring relief to consumers at point of sale. What better way to be rewarded for paying your rent than to earn points that can be spent on household goods, technology, and everyday items that are available online.”
“At Bilt Rewards we are always looking to provide our members with meaningful ways to redeem the points they’ve earned on rent and other purchases,” says Dave Canty, Head of Loyalty and Partnerships at Bilt Rewards. “Through our partnership with Engage People, we’re extending the utility of those points so that our customers can use them in ways that are most relevant and convenient to them.”
Bilt Rewards is the latest company to join Engage People’s loyalty network, which also includes two of the top global online retailers and three of the top six Canadian banks with further expansion projected in 2022. The loyalty network covers 100% of the top spend categories in North America.
