MGM Resorts Amex Offer: Spend $300, Get $60 Back/6,000 Membership Rewards

Hardly a day seems to go by without there being an MGM Resorts Amex Offer available. No sooner had one ended than a new one appeared offering either $60 back or 6,000 Membership Rewards when spending $300 or more. By taking advantage of this offer and some comp nights from M life, you can stay for a week on the Las Vegas Strip for only $40 per night.

Quick Thoughts

One of the nice things about these MGM Resorts Amex Offers is that they can be stacked with M life offers to get a cheap stay on the Las Vegas Strip.

For example, when logging in to my M life account, they’re offering up to four complimentary nights at the Luxor (n.b. apparently these offers are targeted, so you might see different offers). There’s wide open availability for comp nights throughout next month.

Luxor Availability In February

Let’s say you want to book a week’s stay in Vegas over Valentine’s Day. Selecting February 8-15 would cost a total of $342.41. That total is so (relatively) high for a couple of reasons. First, there’s a limit of four comp nights, so you’d be paying for the other three nights even though they’re displayed as ‘Comp’ in the search results shown above. Secondly, you have to pay the obscene resort fees of almost $40 per night.

By paying for that stay with an Amex card with the $60 statement credit loaded, your net cost would be $282.41, or only $40.34 per night. Paying with a card with the Membership Rewards version of the offer would be even better value provided you value MR at more than 1 cent per point.

I stayed at the Luxor a couple of years ago and, despite some of the negative reviews I read beforehand, our room was perfectly fine. If you’d rather stay at a nicer property though, check out some of the other M life offers. For example, I had a different promotion available offering two comp nights at the MGM Grand.

A four night stay from February 11-15 would cost a total of $265.31. You can add late checkout for a $40 fee (plus taxes) which would take you over the $300 threshold at a total of $310.66. With a statement credit of $60 from the Amex Offer, you’d be paying an average of $62.67 per night.

A few other things to note:

  • Multiple Amex Offers – You can load one of each version of the offer to different cards if you have them. That way you can take advantage of both offers if you’ll be spending $600+.
  • Status Match – If you have status with Hyatt, don’t forget to status match.
  • Room Charges – If your room rate isn’t enough to trigger the Amex Offer, make sure you charge everything to your room, even if you eat out at different MGM Resort properties during your stay. For example, if you eat at the ARIA buffet, you can charge that to your room at Bellagio. Those room charges would hopefully be enough to cross the $300 spend threshold for the Amex Offer.

Can this be paid for in full during the promotion for a stay in July, which is after promo ends?

I have the 6K + $60 offers on two separate cards – has anyone tried split tender with a $600+ bill at MGM and have they been oK with it?

I split payment between mine and my husband’s AMEX at Park MGM. This was in November and we both had the offer on our cards that time around. They had no problem with splitting the payments exactly how I asked them to. Both of our offers redeemed without a hitch.
