I have written extensively about the Mlife and Hyatt partnership in the past. I am an Alaska Airlines loyalist so don’t have much use for Southwest Rapid Rewards. However, Southwest Rapid Rewards and Mlife Vegas also have a partnership that has been earning me points without doing a thing. And right now, until the end of 2015, you can double your Southwest Rapid Rewards points when staying at an Mlife property (HT to PDXDealsGuy).
The standard promotion is 600 Southwest Rapid Rewards points each stay at an Mlife property. Whether it is one night or fourteen nights, you get 600 points. Think of it in the same way you think of a Hyatt stay credit at Mlife. One credit for the stay. Therefore, if you are adventurous, you might want to try a different property each night. If you have a three night stay, and you stay at MGM Grand the first night, Mirage the second, and Aria the third, you would get 1,800 SW points.
My recent property hoping in Vegas:
The promotion currently, until the end of 2015, is doubling that to 1,200 Southwest Rapid Rewards points per stay. So in the above scenario, you would get 3,600 SW points.
Of note, Excalibur and Vdara are left off the list of eligible Mlife properties. Poor, neglected Excalibur.
The standard rules apply; you must book directly through Mlife or Southwest.com. You must book by November 7th but there is no need to opt in to the promo; just make sure you show your Southwest Rapid Rewards card when you check in.
In the past I have always been able to get Southwest points AND Hyatt Gold Passport points for each stay at Mlife, but YMMV as technically you are only supposed to get one or the other.
