MGM Resorts announced they’re launching a brand new loyalty program on February 1, 2021 called MGM Rewards. MGM Rewards replaces the current M life program. New benefits include waived resort fees, celebration dinners, suite upgrades, and airfare credit for elite members.
As a reminder, World of Hyatt Globalist members can status match to MGM Rewards Gold status and will receive waived resort fees starting February 1st for any direct booking.
Additional program highlights include:
- All members can now earn MGM Rewards Points when they play, stay or dine at all domestic MGM Resorts destinations on directly booked rooms and food & beverage, as well as slots and now, table games. In addition to earning MGM Reward Points, slots players can now earn Slot Dollars (formerly referred to as PointPlay) for their play.
- Non-gaming and gaming members alike will now be able to redeem MGM Rewards Points for a multitude of experiences from hotel stays and food & beverage to entertainment, award-winning spas and more.
- New Tier Advancement Celebration Dinners and access to exclusive tier appreciation events recognize members who reach Gold or above tiers based on 2022 gaming and non-gaming spend.
- Extended earning window – To celebrate MGM Rewards’ launch, Tier Credits earned by members from January 1- January 31 will count toward both 2022 and 2023 Tier Status earning.
- Tier Credit multiplier promotion – As a welcome to MGM Rewards, all members are invited to take advantage of a limited-time 2x multiplier on Tier Credits earned at the Company’s Las Vegas resorts February 1 – April 30, 2022 (at the applicable earning rates). Tier Credits may be earned on all gaming play as well as spend on hotel accommodations, dining and spa services.
- Tier Credits required to achieve each Tier Status remain the same for all tiers with the exception of Pearl which will be lowered from 25,000 to 20,000 Tier Credits required.
- The enhanced MGM Rewards app simplifies the digital experience, allows members to easily review their tier status and benefits, and visualize how they can advance to the next tier. Play and spend are recognized as a single account, making it easy to stay, play and dine wherever and whenever members prefer.
It’s great to see that MGM is launching MGM Rewards and having waived resort fees for elite members will be a huge addition! Looking closely at the benefits, many of their perks mirror Caesars Rewards which also offers waived resort fees and dinner credits.
