World of Hyatt Offering Double Points At M Life Properties

World of Hyatt has just announced yet another promotion for members.

Between October 1 and December 29, 2018, World of Hyatt members can earn double points for stays at participating MGM properties in Las Vegas.

World of Hyatt members ordinarily earn five base points per dollar spent at MGM properties, so through this promotion they’ll earn an additional five points per dollar spent.

That means World of Hyatt members will earn more points for stays at MGM properties than for stays at Hyatt properties, which is sort of interesting. I value World of Hyatt points at ~1.5 cents each, so to me 10 points per dollar equate to a return of roughly 15%.

To be eligible to participate in this promotion, members must register and stay during the promotion period, and must be a member of both World of Hyatt and M Life rewards. Points should post to eligible accounts 3-4 weeks after completing an eligible stay.

Participating properties include the following:

  • Bellagio Las Vegas
  • ARIA Resort and Casino
  • Vdara Hotel and Spa
  • MGM Grand Hotel and Casino
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay
  • The Mirage Hotel and Casino
  • Park MGM
  • New York New York Hotel and Casino
  • Luxor Hotel and Casino
  • Excalibur Hotel and Casino

When staying at MGM properties you also earn World of Hyatt elite nights, as you would if staying at a Hyatt. This is by far the most useful hotel partnership we see in Las Vegas, in my opinion.

It potentially gets even better than that, as you can stack this with a couple of other promotions:

Bottom line

Tourism numbers are still down a bit following last year’s tragedy in Las Vegas, so my guess is that the MGM properties are looking to do whatever they can to boost occupancy. While this isn’t enough to get me to plan a trip to Las Vegas, it certainly would make me choose MGM over a competitor if visiting Las Vegas.

Has anyone taken advantage of the Hyatt and MGM partnership lately?

  1. I’m staying at Belagio for 4 nights in mid October and I booked my reservation thru citi prestige concierge to get the 4th night credit. Mlife was offering a much lower rate than what was available thru hyatt’s website so we booked thru them and not hyatt.com. I have both my Mlife and Hyatt account numbers on reservation. So, given this would I qualify for this promotion?

  2. To those who were asking, I called and was told that you do not get bonus earnings if you use the Hyatt card M-Life properties
