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:
- World of Hyatt and M Life Rewards are allowing members to double dip through October 14, 2018; with this, members can earn both World of Hyatt base points and M Life Rewards tier credits for eligible stays
- Hyatt’s current global promotion (through November 30, 2018) offers up to 60,000 bonus points and is also valid at MGM properties
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?
