MGM LINKS MASTERCARD TO REWARDS PROGRAM

The granddaddy of all rewards programs – MGM’s M life, last week launched its’ own credit card – the new M life Rewards MasterCard, in partnership with First Bankcard, a division of First National Bank of Omaha and a leading issuer of credit cards.

Coinciding with the launch, MGM Resorts is evolving the name of its award-winning loyalty program to M life Rewards. The premier hospitality rewards program, available to all guests of MGM Resorts, provides members with exclusive access, personalised offers and special benefits at 15 destinations across the U.S. including Bellagio, MGM Grand and ARIA in Las Vegas, Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss., MGM Grand Detroit, and the soon-to-open MGM National Harbor.

The loyalty program is a four-time winner of the Freddie Awards, the most prestigious member-generated awards in the travel loyalty industry. Honours include Best Customer Service, Best Promotion and Up and Coming Program of the Year.

The new M life Rewards MasterCard allows members to achieve higher Tier status, more rewards and benefits faster and turn everyday purchases into exclusive hotel, dining, entertainment and spa experiences at M life Rewards destinations.

Cardholders  can now earn M life Rewards Points and Tier Credits for every dollar they spend on their credit card, including double points at gas stations and supermarkets and triple points for purchases at M life Rewards destinations – that includes hotel, dining, entertainment, and spa experiences – along with slots and table games. As a bonus, 10,000 M life points are attained after spending $1,000 within the first three billing cycles.

Cardholders also receive an upgrade to Pearl Tier status and priority hotel check-in at all M life Rewards destinations. Additional cardholder benefits include complimentary self-parking and buffet line passes at M life Rewards’ Las Vegas resorts.

M life Rewards members can apply for the M life Rewards MasterCard online at mlife.com or at any M life Rewards Desk at M life Rewards destinations: Bellagio, ARIA, Vdara, MGM Grand, The Signature at MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Delano Las Vegas, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor, and Excalibur in Las Vegas; Beau Rivage and Gold Strike in Mississippi; and MGM Grand Detroit.

Here in Australia we can’t add a credit card to a club rewards program, however, there is the option to add either an Eftpos or Visa Debit card.  To find out more go to www.gslsolutions.com.au or  contact Danielle Rayner at  GSL Solutions E: Danielle@gslsolutions.com.au or phone 0405 123 444 .
