Getting back into the game, and a double point bonus for Hyatt at MGM

Welcome back to rsts11travel. With obvious constraints in place, we haven’t been traveling or keeping too close an eye on the travel world the last two years. Unlike some bigger named sites, we make a few bucks here from referral links, but generally it’s a labor of love, and labor has outweighed love for two and a half years for the most part.

That being said, we have a couple of posts in the queue and some probable Vegas travel coming up, so stick around and we’ll bring rsts11travel back to life.

For now, we’ll share a promotion or two during July (check back or watch our Twitter for updates

Hyatt and MGM – Double World of Hyatt points through October 15, 2022

World of Hyatt had been partnered with MLife Rewards for quite a while. Our Hyatt status some years came purely from Delano Las Vegas stays, in fact.

For the next three months, though, you get double Hyatt points with Las Vegas MGM stays.

Register here ASAP, and stay by October 15, 2022.

Highlights from the terms and conditions:

  • You will receive five (5) World of Hyatt Base Points and five (5) World of Hyatt Bonus Points per eligible USD for each eligible stay at participating MGM Rewards Las Vegas destinations during the Offer Period. 
  • For the purpose of this offer, an “eligible stay” is defined as any stay where a member is paying an Eligible Rate or redeems a free night award for at least one night of their stay.
  • You must provide your World of Hyatt membership number at the time of check-in and choose World of Hyatt Points for each stay. 

In terms of the linking for normal benefits, you can match MGM status to World of Hyatt (Pearl to Discoverist, Gold and above to Explorist), earn World of Hyatt points at MGM properties, earn MGM Tier Credits at Hyatt properties, and other benefits of status on either side. (We’re pretty sure they used to let you get both programs, but that is not the case now with the revised MGM Rewards program.)

Having gone thirteen months away from Vegas, we’ll be looking into the reward program updates since then and sharing details with you (and drilling them into our own memory) in an upcoming post. This is the first year since 2014 that we haven’t had status, with mostly Gold and one year of Platinum in there. So it’s likely to be a learning opportunity.

Are there any new benefits at Las Vegas hotels you’d like to know about or dig into? Share in the comments and we’ll see what we can do.
