MGM Resorts officially launched MGM Rewards, its new loyalty program. For the first time, non-gaming members can earn a currency, MGM Rewards Points, to redeem for dining, entertainment, hotel stays and more at destinations resorts like Bellagio, ARIA, Borgata and MGM National Harbor, among many others.
“The enhancements we’ve introduced with MGM Rewards are rooted in feedback shared by our members and allow us to invest in providing members progressively more valuable benefits at each tier. Our unique rewards offer significant incentives for guests to achieve at every level from Sapphire to NOIR,” said Anil Mansukhani, vice president of loyalty and marketing, MGM Resorts. “With our unparalleled collection of resorts and premier partnerships, MGM Rewards is a superior loyalty rewards program that enhances our members’ experiences nationwide.”
Some of the program’s benefits include waived resort fees, free valet parking, late check-out, suite upgrades, complimentary concerts and partnerships with other travel brands. Slot players can double their earnings, receiving both MGM Rewards Points and Slot Dollars, while table game players can now earn MGM Rewards Points as well. For those with the MGM Rewards Mastercard, earn even more. There is no currency expiration for members at the Pearl+ level and higher, and earning and redemption of points can be done at more than 400 food and beverage outlets in the collection of properties. There are also BetMGM Rewards options.
As a welcome to MGM Rewards, all members will benefit from a two-times multiplier on Tier Credits earned at the company’s Las Vegas resorts, at the new earning rates, through April 30.

The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
