UPDATE: On February 1, 2022, M life will become MGM Rewards. Read more about the change here.
One of the most popular topics on my website is MGM Rewards — the loyalty program from MGM Resorts International. The company currently owns 12 resorts in Las Vegas (depending on how you count them) plus additional resorts across the US and Asia.
If you are a Platinum member staying at an M life resort, you can get free entry to a number of attractions in Las Vegas. But you have to know to ask. Apparently this benefit will be going away (at least temporarily) with the transition to MGM Rewards. However, now Platinum members will receive a $600 travel credit.
Did you know that there are special lounges for those with status? Check out my rundown of how to access each lounge. The future of these lounges under MGM Rewards is unclear.
Free Annual Cruise
If you earn Platinum status, you are eligible for a free cruise on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. My experience with booking the free cruise.
Matching MGM Rewards to/from Hyatt Status
One of the great things about M life is that they are a partner of Hyatt. That means you can status match between MGM Rewards and World of Hyatt. If you have the Hyatt Chase Visa, you can get MGM Rewards Gold Tier status without gambling or spending a dime in Vegas.
You can also earn Hyatt stay credits that count towards elite qualifications by staying at an MGM Rewards property.
Southwest Airlines and MGM Rewards
Another MGM Rewards partner is Southwest Airlines. You can earn 600 Rapid Rewards points for each stay at an MGM Rewards property.
