Our Verdict

Park MGM has rooms for $30 per night (plus $37 in daily resort fees), if you did a two night stay in August you’d get a $150 credit and pay $134. On the booking page it does say offer total: $60 so I wonder if you only receive a credit up to the room rate (excluding the resort fees). The fine print doesn’t mention this, but it’s possible I guess. Confirmed to not matter. Stacking ideas:

  • AmEx offer: Spend $300, get $60/6,000 points

Anybody have any other ideas on how to stack this?

The room rate doesn’t matter. Track your spending carefully and do your own math. They just remove the charge from the folio so its hard to track. Sometimes they remove the tax and gratitude as well, some times no. It was always a hot mess. Also some properties will only allow you to use it on that property not any Mlife property. At least I think this is how the software works. Yet, I never had problem calling back later to ask them apply unused comp to my charges. YMMV of course.

Stayed at Mandalay Bay recently and they gave $50 Resort Credit which was able to be used at any MGM Propertywe used it at Cafe Bellagio no issues just tell them to bill it to your room.

Fair warning, F & B are very expensive in these hotels. Starbucks black coffe starts around $4-5, a venti Frappe start at $8. Their website stopped showing menu price long time ago. The buffet price goes up $2-3 every time I went. Amex offer, Hyatt stay credit, and MyVegas rewards all stacks.

“It was always a hot mess.”

That is no understatement.

Want –

“MyVegas rewards all stacks.”

MyVEGAS Rewards do not stack with Resort Credits. I’ve tried several times and they say if you’re using a MyVEGAS Reward you can’t charge it to you room, meaning can’t stack. Likely because it is double dipping.

Can use Amex and MyVEGAS or Hyatt and MyVEGAS but not MyVEGAS and Charge to room.

Also, as a note you can only use 3 MyVEGAS Rewards in a rolling 30 day period.

As far as Starbucks in Vegas you can’t bill it to your room so can’t use Resort Credit on it. I think $150 Resort Credit can go pretty far. That’s at least 3 good meals for 2 people 🙂

I never had that trouble. Maybe things have changed lately. Last time I did that was early 2017 I believe.

I’ve had Starbuck’s charges billed to my room dozens of times. There may be a few strip Starbuck’s not associated with a hotel but they are rare. Perhaps you got a new barista who didn’t know better.

MGM Resorts Amex offer… 6k MR with $300 spend

Another current offer: book through AmexTravel.com, spend at least $600 for a prepaid booking and get $100 back.

You are not including tax, a $30 /night 2 night stay at Park MGM is $151.93. Still a good offer as long as people know everything they will be buying is way over priced so $150 may not go far

Resort fees can often be as high as $39 or $49 per night.

They’re not over $40 I stayed at Manadalay and Bellagio both were $37 plus tax and this was a month ago.

When I stayed at the Aria at the end of last year, a $39 resort fee + a $5.22 “resort fee tax” was added to the bill for each night (and that’s not including the 13.38% room tax per night). At the Palazzo/Venetian (not a MGM property) the resort fee alone is $45, $51.02 with the resort fee tax.

Make sure to give them you Hyatt number when you check in. Even though it is in your Mlife account it does not always credit automatically. Bill everything to the room. The last 2 night stay we had ended up with about 5000 Hyatt points.

“The credit is valid at participating outlets only and excludes gratuity. Credit valid at all Las Vegas M life Rewards destinations.”

I assume this means you can stay at one MGM property but spend the credit at any of the other MGM resorts?

if anyone chooses mgm grand, consider to check with the mgmt there if the RC will be applied at all other mgm-owned resorts; last month, i stayed there with $150 rc, but spend or charges to the room used at different mgm owned eateries did not qualify; noted such after 1st nite and was told that only specific eateries within their mgm grand hotel (even those by the lazy river / pool are excluded); after had complained to the mgmt there that the credit is mgm resort credit, not specifically only for mgm grand hotel, they made an exception & manually applied the credit toward outstanding charges; however, the remaining credit had to be used at the specific ones on its list

was my first visit there (to check out the renovated lazy river/pools), but likely was the last as well…the resort looks tired & grand room looks outdated

Partially correct. It is only participating restaurants. Like the mexican place at Delano will not work for this type of credit, but most buffets will. Also, there are different types of resort credits and they have different policies- for instance a different type of resort credit received from certain other offers will cover the same mexican place listed above. However, this food and beverage one is more restrictive but can be used at lots of places. At MGM a year ago they had a list of participating places and gave it to me when I asked. Try asking when you check in.

believe that individual mgm resort/hotel has its own policy; last month stayed at 2 different hotels, delano & mgm grand, with the same rc type; the same restaurant at nyny named america charged back to delano stay was taken off but not to mgm grand stay, as earlier stated, had to get the charge manually taken off; so, thought to let folks know that mgm grand definitely has own policy; heck,notable wolfgang puck along with a few other eateries inside its hotel are excluded…was told that while its own buffet at the hotel is ok but not those at other mgm hotels

last yr, stayed at mandalay bay & luxor with the same rc type; all charges back to the rooms at buffets in bellagio & aria were taken off

Might stack with credits from the myVegas have which also offers discounts and free nights if you play it enough on Facebook (free to play). I’m up to around $135 of credits after playing it very casually since May.

can it be stacked with the amex 300-60 offer? I saw that the amex offer required booking through mlife.com. The link in this page direct to different webpage, although still in mlife.

Can this be stacked with AMEX FHR?

No, because you have to book directly. If you need a 3-night stay, you can book two nights with this deal and one night through FHR for maximum benefits.

I know it says “Not available for existing or consecutive reservations.” but any body know how strict they are about this? I plan to stay 4 nights for 2 guests so I want to split my reservation up 2 nights/2 nights to get double the resort credit. Should we make the reservations under each of our names? Will we have to check out then back in? Ideally, we would keep the same room and have double the resort credits.

They will not honor second reservation for two in a row to the same person. They won’t tell you that but you find out after you check out when they default to the casino rate and say we have no idea what you are talking about.

For a 4-night stay, would the deal work if you changed hotels after the first 2 nights? Or would that be considered consecutive in the eyes of MGM?

should work if the system accepts 2 separate reservations

Can this be used to extend a comp stay from Mlife that I had an offer for for 3 nights? I could just live at the RhumBar at the Mirage, and Even met Sigfried in the Secret Garden last time there.

Hi Judy,

So what would happen is you’d use the Comp Stay, and schedule the new stay with this promo to coincide for the following 2 days. You’d check out of the comp stay and check in to the new 🙂

AMEX 300/60 offer states that it must be booked through mlife.com. This promotion isn’t shown when going through mlife.com. Any thoughts if the AMEX offer would work using the hotel site instead of mlife.com?

it’s thru mlife

Do you think there would be any issue if I book on multiple dates like once in November and once in December?

Just got back from a Wednesday – Friday trip at Park MGM. The resort was a really great option. Using the 150 Credit plus the Amex 60 back off (already got posted), was undoubtedly a super deal. Food taxes, tips, resort taxes, resort fees, and nightly rate all posted to the folio. The $150 worth of food and bev did not post but we manually tracked. Very simply process, very easy with all the technology at Park MGM. Great experience.

steven, the credit was ‘manually tracked’ meant what? park mgm manually adjusted or applied the cr for f&b charges at other mlife properties, or some excluded eateries inside its hotel? plan a 2-nite stay later this yr there, want to ask to see that they also have strict restrictions of where to use for f&b charges

Can confirm that the credit can be used at any of the M Life property restaurants as long as they can bill it straight to your room. Check with the restaurant first. Some restaurants such as Javiers at MGM Grand cannot bill it to your room.
