Earn More Points for Hyatt, MGM Stays in Las Vegas

This new promotion for stays at Hyatt and MGM properties in Las Vegas raises the question: How skimpy can a bonus be and still be relevant?

Offer Details

Between October 19 and December 29, Hyatt Gold Passport members can earn 20 percent more points for stays at 13 Las Vegas hotels:

  • Hyatt Place Las Vegas
  • Bellagio
  • ARIA
  • Vdara
  • MGM Grand
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • Delano Las Vegas
  • The Mirage
  • Monte Carlo
  • New York-New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur

To earn the Hyatt bonus for stays at the MGM hotels, travelers must be members of MGM’s M Life Rewards program, in addition to Hyatt’s Gold Passport.

Registration is required.

Deal or No Deal

As bonuses go, 20 percent is almost laughably insignificant. It typically takes double points to get travelers’ attention, triple points to spur them to book outside their normal loyalty networks.

There’s no reason not to sign up for this bonus if you’re already planning to stay at one of the participating hotels during the promotion period. Nor is there any reason to rethink your choice of hotel if you’re planning to stay somewhere else.

How much of a bonus does it take to affect your choice of hotel?
