MGM Rewards Points

You’ll earn points based on your slot play, video lottery, and table game play. In addition, you can earn 1 point per $1 spent on eligible dining and hotel charges at MGM Resorts. Each MGM Rewards point is worth 1 cent and can be redeemed toward a hotel stay, participating food and beverage locations, entertainment venues, or to purchase MGM Rewards Moments.

You’ll earn Slot Dollars when you play slots, video lottery, and video poker games. They can be redeemed for FREEPLAY at participating machines.


FREEPLAY is like electronic cash that you can use to play on your favorite slot machines or video lottery terminals.

Holiday Gift Points can be redeemed for merchandise at the MGM Holiday Gift Shoppe event. Redemptions must be made in person.

MGM Moments

MGM Moments are special experiences that you can purchase only if you’re an MGM Rewards member. They include things like choosing the songs for the Bellagio fountains, swimming with sharks at Mandalay Bay, or an exclusive dinner for 2 with a well-known chef.

* These perks are only available to qualifying members. A qualifying member is one who earns the minimum number of tier credits required for each level. If you earn status through a third party or status match, you are not eligible for these bonuses.

Bottom Line: Your MGM Rewards elite level is determined by the number of tier credits you earn over 1 calendar year from January 1 to December 31. As soon as you reach the required number of points for the next tier level, your status will be advanced and you’ll maintain that status for the rest of that year, the following calendar year, through January of the third calendar year. For example, if you earn Gold status in August 2023, your status would be valid through January 31, 2025.

Tier Status Match

In addition to status matching from the World of Hyatt program, MGM will also match tiers from other casino loyalty programs.

Here’s a look at the status match opportunities for other Nevada casino loyalty programs. To see options for other states, check out the full list of casino loyalty program tier matches.

Cirque du Soleil

MGM Rewards members can save up to 25% off ticket prices and have access to preferred seating for select Cirque du Soleil performances.

Thunder Valley Casino Resort

MGM Rewards members can receive benefits and offers through Thunder Valley Casino Resort, located in Northern California.

Cashman Photo

As an MGM Rewards member, you can receive special discounts and benefits at all Cashman Photo Enterprise locations at MGM Resort properties in Las Vegas.

MGM Rewards™ Mastercard®

With the MGM Rewards card, you can earn points that can be redeemed Slot Dollars or MGM Rewards points.

With this card, you’ll earn:

  • 3 points and 3 tier credits per $1 spent at MGM Resorts properties
  • 2 points and 2 tier credits per $1 spent at supermarkets and gas stations
  • 1 point and 1 tier credit per $1 spent everywhere else

Plus, as a cardmember, you’ll automatically receive an upgrade to Pearl status and priority check-in at MGM Resorts.

So, is this card worth getting? Probably not. Even for high rollers who spend a lot at MGM properties, there are other credit cards out there that will offer even more benefits.

Alternative Credit Card Options to the MGM Rewards Card

You can earn 3x points on all travel (including MGM Resorts) by using the Chase Sapphire Reserve®Citi Premier® Card, or the Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card.

If you’re interested in earning points at U.S. supermarkets, check out the American Express® Gold Card that earns 4x (up to $25,000 per calendar year; 1x thereafter).

If you’d like a card that earns bonus points at gas stations, consider the Marriott Bonvoy Business® American Express® Card also earns 4x points at U.S. gas stations.

Bottom Line: For most people, the MGM Rewards card isn’t worth it. There are so many other entertainment and travel rewards credit cards out there that offer more benefits and higher-earning capabilities than this card. 

Final Thoughts

If you’re a regular on the Las Vegas Strip, you might be familiar with MGM Rewards. As a member, you’ll earn points that can be applied to your hotel, dining, and entertainment bills. You’ll also earn tier credits toward elite status.

If you rarely travel to Vegas, don’t worry — MGM Rewards is valid at MGM properties across the U.S. as well as those in China and Japan.

Even if you aren’t a big gambler, you can sign up for MGM Rewards for free to earn perks anytime you try your hand at Lady Luck!

Anthony Peluso

Very disappointed that based on restriction during 2020 you did not take into consideration lowering the standard for NOIR. I received 802,000 tier credits and literally received nothing for it. I have and use the Mlife rewards card as well. I am a very regular slot player at MGM Northfield in Ohio.

Jarrod West

January 28, 2021

Hi Anthony,

I understand your frustration, but we do not represent or have any affiliation with MGM. We are Upgraded Points, an educational travel website.


February 15, 2021

I can’t find detailed info so figured I would ask here. Under mlife rewards it states you will earn 25 tier credits (no rewards credits) for each dollar spent at MGM properties for hotel, dining, and entertainment. If I use the mlife rewards Mastercard, it states I get 3x tier and rewards points for spend at MGM properties. Does this mean you can double dip with the credit card? I.e. spend 1000 at an MGM property on the mlife credit card should equate to 25k tier credits (direct spend at property), and an additional 3000 tier credits and 3000 rewards credits from the mlife Mastercard?

Jarrod West

February 16, 2021

Hi Collin,

Yes, this is correct. You should be able to double-dip this way by both being apart of the M life loyalty program and using the M life credit card.

Jill A Ines

April 12, 2021

The way I understand it is 3× the Tier credits. 3× 25 credits is 75 per dollar spent. That equates to 75k per $1000 spent.


June 12, 2021

Hi! I thought the same thing initially when I first got the card a few years ago but that’s not how it works. The 3x is misleading the way they describe it. It really means 25 + 3, not 3x. So for every dollar spent at MGM properties/experiences, you get 28 points, instead of the base 25 points (not 75). Hope that helps!


July 04, 2023

There’s more, and your author needs to update given the date on the byline: it’s now FOUR credits/$ under the “new” MGMRewards. Not 25 as with Mlife.

How do I view my holiday points balance?? I don’t see it on the app

Katie Seemann

November 29, 2021

Hi Patty,

If you go into your account on the website and click “My Rewards” you’ll be able to see your holiday points balance.

Peter Zaat

May 10, 2022

Hello everyone,
The last time I was in Las Vegas I collected enough points that earned me a Gold Card.
I would come back within a year to take advantage of this, however, Covid-19 came into the world.
Because I am from the Netherlands, I was not allowed to go to America for two years. Have I lost my Gold Card? If that’s it, that’s a shame.
Can you help me with this?
Kind regards Peter Zaat from the Netherlands.

Katie Seemann

May 10, 2022

Hi Peter,
I hear you – the last couple of years have been tough. Status was extended through January 2022, but since that has already passed I’m guessing you’ve lost your status already. You could try contacting MGM Rewards directly to see if they will make an exception or you can re-gain status through a status match if you’ve got status with another casino program, Hyatt, Royal Caribbean, or Celebrity Cruises. Good luck and I hope you can make it back to the U.S. soon!


July 04, 2023

Just an anecdotal note:
I was once Platinum, then stopped going to Vegas entirely (nothing to do with covid). Apparently, post-covid, even despite the resurgence in visitors, they are anxious for more–so I was granted Platinum status once again! (Perks are not what they once were, however. I’m guessing members have noticed this, which is another possible reason for the “gift.”) It’s “honorary,” in that you have the line-cutting & reservation priorities, waived Resort Fees (I think?) but you have to earn the points again for airline credits, cruise, the “real” paybacks.

Kevin knepper

July 21, 2022

My wife and I came to Vegas 3 to 4 times a year. We didn’t risk the wonderful times we had there do to covid last year. Mlife took away my points. We were gold card members. Now back to zero. Sorry. Not coming back.


July 04, 2023

I’m with you, missed out on Vegas fun for a few yrs due to covid. But…

Points always reset annually. It’s always been that way. There are legit gripes to be had with the “new” MGMRewards program that replaced Mlife… but this is not one.


August 05, 2022

I was platinum (200k tier points) for five years (guess I still am until January 2023, technically), but no more. I traveled in 2022 under the 2 x’s points “bonus period,” but that just shows how terrible the points are now. I hit 94k tier points, not even half the amount needed to maintain platinum, spending the exact same amount out of pocket that I spent in 2021, in a less expensive comp room. I think people should look elsewhere for a rewards program, as the new MGM Rewards is disappointing.

July 04, 2023

What you have noticed, and the author & other commenters have not yet realized: the “new” MGMRewards knocked your earn down from 25 points/$ Vegas spend… to just FOUR points. “For consistency” across the MGM brand, they said: under Mlife it was 25 points/$ in Vegas, 4 points elsewhere.


December 28, 2022

The credit card does seem basic. The main reason I’m considering it is for the free parking via Pearl status, and that it has no annual fee. Unless I’m missing something, would any other credit cards offer credits or parking perks for MGM properties? I believe the Hyatt card does, but it’s annual fee $95, and I haven’t really been to many Hyatt hotels before.


July 01, 2023

Hmm… I’m not a travel snob or frequent flyer at all but I personally am not looking to spend $95 on the Hyatt card for free parking at MGM properties, unless I’m missing something in the mix here. I’ve been to Hyatt once or twice before, but I definitely wouldn’t go nearly enough to be an Explorist member (I’m sure I’d have to spend many thousands of dollars to do so). For people who live in neighboring California or Arizona, a drive to Vegas can be a few hours away. Parking rates can be $18+ a day, which can easily add to a hotel bill over several nights when you’re self-parking and not flying in. I’m honestly more low-key and not a lavish traveler, and I’m sure many other people self-park as well.


July 04, 2023

There are other perks: I didn’t realize “invited guest” check-in was offered as low as Pearl, but also, your $$ never expire as long as you keep the account open (as part of the automatic Pearl status). The card does suck (and the website is a nightmare) but it’s the reason I’ll be keeping the card even though I’ll never earn Platinum or even likely Gold under the “new” rules….


January 20, 2023

We’d like to travel to Las Vegas in 2023 when MGM offers 2x tier points. Do you know when MGM offers 2x tier points after January 2023? Thank you.

Jarrod West

January 20, 2023

Hi Trinh,

We haven’t received any word on that just yet. Thanks for reading!


July 04, 2023

You should check the MGM home page & follow the MGMRewards link. It’s all there, down below with other offers & info.

Tracey Bruce

January 27, 2023

I’ve been trying to sign up my husband for MGM Rewards and it will not let me click the finish button. All of the information is entered and yet the finish button does not turn blue for me to go any further. I’m not sure why this is happening. wWuld love to hear how I can sign up. Thanks

Jarrod West

January 28, 2023

Hi Tracey,

If the form is not working on the MGM website I suggest you contact MGM directly to see what the issue is — perhaps there is problem with their website.


February 09, 2023

Can I use my reward card at any mgm casino and it will collect points?

Jarrod West

February 09, 2023

Hi Nikki,

You should be able to use your MGM card anywhere that accepts credit cards.


February 15, 2023

I was a platinum player for about 3 years and when the pandemic hit I wasn’t able to go very often and was not able to meet platinum requirements. I always thought you drop by a level every year that you don’t meet that level requirements but sadly I went from platinum to pearl. In 2021 I was still a Platinum and used enough to be a Platinum for 2022, but 2022 was not able to go very often so didn’t meet requirements to stay as platinum, and so I thought I’d be down a level to Gold, but NOPE, down to pearl. Very sad news.


July 04, 2023

Hey, it’s in the rules: points reset every year.
We all lost during covid but good news (for some at least?), I had lost all my email offers for comp rooms after a light year earning only base level (formerly received offers based on former Platinum status), but post-covid, marketing has granted “honorary” Platinum status again. (“Honorary” in the sense that you get the line-cutting, reservation, check-in/out perks but not airfare credit or cruise: gotta earn those points again. Impossible for me under the “new” rules but oh well.)


June 15, 2023

someone mentioned that Luxor and New York New York were sister companies of MGM can we use points there?

Jarrod West

June 16, 2023

Hi Stacey,

Yes you can, you’d just need to book through Hyatt.


July 07, 2023

…and if you’re not talking about the credit card, but rather the basic MGMRewards membership card: why yes, of course you get points throughout any & all MGM Resorts properties. (It’s right there in the rules! As is the list of all MGM Resorts!😉)


July 03, 2023

You need to remove Mirage from the list of MGM properties as they are now a Hard Rock property.

Keri Stooksbury

July 04, 2023

Thanks, Young – we’ve got this updated!


July 04, 2023

Author needs to update.
Mirage is no longer MGM, and has not been since before the byline on this article. (She correctly notes that Cosmopolitan has not yet been integrated into MGMRewards. You *can* charge certain restaurants to your room–to earn points–between Cosmo & certain MGM properties–it’s complicated. Sort of a rolling integration, as MGM absorbs Cosmo.)

Keri Stooksbury

July 04, 2023

Thanks, Motoman2WH3 – we’ve got this updated!

Brian Kalyn

July 18, 2023

If I made purchases at MGM Grand or Bellagio in Las Vegas but did not have my MGM Rewards Card or the rewards number at the time of purchase, can I somehow add those purchases so I get MGM Reward points after the fact?

Keri Stooksbury

July 18, 2023

Hi Brian – I’d suggested that you send an email to with your inquiry. Thanks for reading!
