Now thatMGM's Mlife Rewards Program is offering an Mlife status match to both Mlife Gold & Platinum Tier levels, we thought it would be helpful to detail the benefits and differences for each M life Tier. MGM's casino loyalty program has four elite status levels and each level has different benefits ranging from free parking to retail discounts to slot multipliers, free cruises and room upgrades at M life hotels. There are also several partner benefits that I'll summarize in another post.
First I'll cover some important details about the M life tiers and Tier Credits, then I'll discuss the benefits of each Mlife Tier separately. I want to note that I get a lot of questions from people about how to earn Tier Credits fast, since tier credits are only used to determine your elite status level, the better question would be, how do I move up tiers quickly. For everything and anything you ever need to know about MGM Tier Credits, Comps and all the things- just review my 2020 MGM Mlife REWARDS GUIDE (PLUS EARNING AND REDEEMING TIER CREDITS, REWARDS CREDITS AND BENEFITS)
Here’s a link to a video covering Casino Status Matches and a few of the tricks I use that I didn’t think I should put in writing (AKA the good stuff.) Also please give me a thumbs up and be sure to subscribe with every email you’ve ever had.
Do Mlife Tier Credits Expire?
Tier Credits Expire on December 31st each year, put another way, tier credits reset to zero at the end of each year. Tier credits used to expire or reset in October but now that the M life Rewards Program has transitioned to a calendar year for Tier Status Earning it begins January 1 and ends December 31.
NOTE: for the current 2020 Tier Status Earning Year only, the Tier Status Earning Year began October 1, 2019 and will end on December 31, 2020. Therefore, members will have three (3) additional calendar months to earn Tier Credits for this Tier Status Earning Year.
The main ways to earn tier credits for Mlife are through gambling, spending at MGM Hotels, Casinos and select partners and through spending on the Mlife Rewards Credit Card. The FASTEST way to rack up credits is to stack earnings by using your Mlife Mastercard to pay for your eligible resort spend. This would net you 28 Tier Credits Per $1 on things like restaurants, spa and my personal favorite: mini bar purchases. To sum that up- You earn Tier Credits at M life Rewards destinations nationwide for every dollar you spend on your hotel stay, dining, entertainment, or spa.
At M life Rewards destinations in Las Vegas you earn 25 Tier Credits per $1 spent for non-gaming spend. For other property locations you earn 8 Tier Credits per $1 spent for non-gaming spend; excluding Borgata. Tier Credit earning rates for slots and table games vary by region so just check out the MGM site. And of course, if you're unsure, the M life Rewards desk in each casino has a list of tier credits earnings values for each property. You can also elect to earn 8 Tier Credits per $1 spent on all Hyatt stays but World of Hyatt points are very valuable so I don't recommend that option unless you only need a few more credits.
In order to make sure you earn all your Tier Credits and that they are credited to your M life Rewards account, always use your M life Rewards card while playing slots and table games at participating MGM Resorts. When making purchases, you should show your M life Rewards card at the time of each qualifying purchase, or charge these purchases to your room and present your M life Rewards card to the Front Desk at the beginning of your stay.
Note: Tier Credit earning rates and earn categories vary by property location.
