In June 2013, Hyatt Gold Passport and MGM Mlife introduced a brilliant new partnership. Before that Hyatt’s footprint on the Las Vegas Strip was virtually non-existent, so through this partnership Hyatt Gold Passport members can get tier matched to MGM Mlife, and also earn and redeem points for stays at MGM properties.
Overall I’ve been very happy with the partnership between Hyatt and Mlife, and it has caused me to consistently stay at MGM properties when in Las Vegas (personally, The Delano works best for me most of the time).
It’s great to be able to earn Hyatt points for my stays there in the same way I would at any other Hyatt property. There are two additional benefits of this partnership that I love:
- For being an Mlife member you can get significant discounts off normal room rates, and even those rates are eligible for Gold Passport points accrual
- You can charge all purchases at any Mlife outlet to your room at any participating hotel, meaning you can earn Hyatt points for just about all your spend while in Las Vegas
Well, Hyatt Gold Passport has just announced a promotion that makes staying on the Las Vegas strip even more lucrative. Between October 19 and December 29, 2016, you can earn 20% bonus Gold Passport points when you register and stay at participating Hyatt and Mlife properties in Las Vegas.
The promotion is valid at the following properties:
- Hyatt Place Las Vegas
- MGM Grand
- The Signage at MGM Grand
- Mandalay Bay
- Delano Las Vegas
- The Mirage
- Monte Carlo
- New York-New York
Registration is required, and bonus points should post to your Gold Passport account 2-3 weeks after an eligible stay. There’s no limit to how many bonus points you can earn, and you can find the full terms & conditions of the promotion here.
Hyatt Gold Passport members ordinarily earn five base points per dollar spent, so through this promotion you earn an additional point per dollar spent. In addition to that Diamond members earn a 30% points bonus, meaning they’d earn a total of 7.5x points per dollar spent at eligible properties.
Keep in mind that this can also be combined with Hyatt’s current global promotion, offering up to 75,000 bonus points after 25 nights.
While this promotion isn’t life changing and isn’t a reason to specifically book a Hyatt/Mlife property in Las Vegas, it is nice to get an additional return on eligible stays. I love the Hyatt and Mlife partnership thanks to the discounted rates, and the ability to earn points for purchases at all Mlife outlets throughout your time in Las Vegas.
So while an extra point per dollar isn’t a reason to adjust where you stay, this is a nice reminder of this excellent partnership, and certainly something to register for if you’re headed to a Las Vegas Mlife property soon.
