MGM Resorts M Life Rewards program announced they’ll be lowering tier credit requirements for those looking to earn elite status now through December 30, 2020 for next year.

Well it’s great that tier credit requirements are being lowered, it’s only being reduced by a meager 20%, so don’t expect it to help too much given the fact most Vegas casinos have been closed for at least 3 months year meaning a minimum they should of lowered by 33%.

MGM Resorts shared the following statement:

Through December 31, 2020. We’ve temporarily lowered the Tier Credits required to achieve Pearl, Gold and Platinum status. It’s now easier to advance your Tier and enjoy more of the benefits you love!

Here’s a rundown of the latest requirements:

Bottom Line

It’s nice to see MGM lower tier requirements for M Life Status for the remainder of this year, however they’ve only done so by a meager 20% of the regular requirements, which isn’t exactly gonna make it much easier to earn the status.

Personally, I would of liked to have seen at least a 33%-50% reduction in tier requirements for elite status to be earned, for those looking to earn status or a higher tier.

As previously mentioned MGM Resorts Offering Free Parking Upon Reopening, however resort fees are still being collected. Additionally, if you’re planning on heading to Vegas this summer, you’ll want to enroll in World of Hyatt Triple Points Bonus Journeys Promotion which includes MGM Resorts.
