We’re focused here on the rewards and perks that come with each card. These cards won’t be worth it if you’re paying interest or late fees. When using a credit card, it’s important to pay your balance in full each month, make payments on time, and only spend what you can afford to pay.

With a dizzying number of airlines and hotels to choose from, how do you decide what’s best for your situation?

Insider has an easy-to-digest beginner’s guide to credit card rewards — you should check that out if you want to learn how to find your own deals. But if you’d prefer an automated answer to your question, you can now find it inside the Bilt Rewards app thanks to its integration of the Point.me award booking service.

To use this new feature, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Navigate to the app’s “Rewards” page.
  2. Choose the “Travel” tab.
  3. Click the “Flights” button.
  4. Toggle the search screen from “Bilt Travel Portal” to “Transfer Partners.”

You now have the capability to search for award flight availability for all Bilt transfer airline partners. Enter your origin and destination and include the cabin you want to fly, and Point.me will quickly find the best deal. You can then transfer your points to the airline with just a few in-app taps.

A one-year subscription to Point.me normally costs $129. While you may not get all the bells and whistles that come from purchasing a membership outright (for example, you can only see search results for Bilt transfer partners), the fact that you get access to its search results and an extremely smart algorithm is a huge win for Bilt Rewards members.

What to know about the Bilt Rewards app and Point.me

Bilt is working hard to become the hottest flexible points currency out there. It’s adding transfer partners all the time. It gives you fun ways to earn bonus points. Its monthly “Rent Day” promotion offers double points (with a limit) during the first day of the month — and sometimes you can answer trivia questions or other activities to earn even more.

With the power of Point.me now living inside the Bilt Rewards app, Bilt’s value proposition continues to rise.
