(EXPIRED) New MGM Amex Offers good for up to 10K points

A day late and a dollar short — story of my life. If you were recently inspired by my status matching shenanigans and would like to put it all on red in Las Vegas (or just get some free show tickets, a free $100 meal, or stay at an MGM property for some easy Hyatt points), there are new Amex Offers available for MGM that may include some overlap (a strict reading of the terms indicates no, but a more liberal interpretation may show a stacking possibility). If you might visit Vegas during the next few months, you’ll want to see if you have a couple of these available on the same card.

The Deal

  • There are several new Amex Offers out today that are good at MGM properties (check the terms as there is some overlap, but not 100%). Two of the statement credit versions or two of the Membership Rewards versions should stack if you have them available on the same card:
    • Spend $300+ at New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur, Beau Rivage, Gold Strike, Borgata, MGM National Harbor, or MGM Springfield, get $60 back or 6,000 Membership Rewards points (depending on your card / offer
    • Spend $500+ at Bellagio, Vdara, MGM Grand, The Signature at MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Delano, Park MGM, NoMad, or the Mirage get $100 back or 10,000 Membership Rewards points (depending on your card / offer)

Key Terms

  • Valid until 8/29/19
  • Valid at select properties (see your offer for details)

Quick Thoughts

The 10K offer could be particularly good if you use it to book one of the included properties through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. FHR bookings would get you a $100 spa credit, breakfast for two (another $60 credit towards either restaurant breakfast or room service), and a 4pm guaranteed late checkout.

The bedroom in a standard room at Delano, my preferred place to stay in Las Vegas. Not a stock photo — this was an actual room I stayed in (I stayed in two different rooms on my recent trip)

Staying at Delano also gives you access to “The Beach” — the pool at Mandalay Bay complete with sand and waves.

Delano, Bellagio, The Signature at MGM, and Aria are all available via FHR. While the terms of the Amex Offers indicate that you must book direct, Fine Hotels & Resorts bookings have qualified for similar past offers in my experience.

I noted at the top that a liberal interpretation of the offers means you might be able to stack a couple. That’s because the $300-spend offers state “MGM Resorts – Select Destinations” under the offer headline. The $500-spend offers indicate “MGM Resorts – Las Vegas”. The fine print indicates that the $500-spend offer is valid at specific properties in Las Vegas, but it actually doesn’t say that it excludes other MGM Las Vegas properties. Would staying at New York-New York, Luxor, or Excalibur trigger both offers on the same card (assuming you have both synced to the same card)? While I wouldn’t claim it likely, neither would I say it is impossible that it could work.

Keep in mind that one of the nice things about staying at MGM properties is the ability to charge across resorts. For example, you could stay at Luxor and charge the buffet at Bellagio to your Luxor room folio — meaning that you can easily hit the spending requirements during a weekend in Las Vegas if you’re charging every meal / purchase you can to your room. With so many MGM properties, I find it easy to spend enough to meet the requirements.

While these offers wouldn’t convince me to take a spontaneous / unplanned trip to Las Vegas, they do look good if you already have a summer trip planned. Remember that you should be able to sync the Membership Rewards version to one of your cards and the statement credit to one of your cards assuming you have both versions available.

The Terms outline which Vegas properties qualify for the $500 offer and the $300 offer. I don’t think you can stack them.

Nick,
thx for the post; i did previously use the amex offers for spend at MGM properties; one thing i like about MGM’s is that the comp / credit can be used across properties as you stated & doesn’t have to spend all at 1 time or location

nowadays with Caesar’s diamond status, other than gambling $ don’t see myself needing a spend of $500 for a 3 nite stay & food; i guess a comp stay, comp dining $ plus diamond $100 dinner at Caesar’s will likely suffice for my later visit this summer

so I am comparing rates… book directly or through FHR. I am Hyatt Globalist and MGM platinum… don need the night credit but I can use hyatt points. My biggest thing is the parking.

Never booked through FHR before. Does anyone know for fact that the elite benefit apply in case of FHR booking such as comp parking?

Rate difference is about $140 higher on FHR before or after $100 amex offer discount on both cases but FHR also has the $100 food credit and $100 spa credit. Current book direct rate is a promotional rate that gives you 2 breakfast or lunch buffet for two so there is that. so, assuming I will get free parking and amex offer credit on FHR booking, I am basically paying $40 more to get $100 spa service and possibly room upgrades…

and finally what’s this? anyway to know what additional charges hotel will likely charge? or just a generic working?

Note: Additional government taxes & fees may be charged by the hotel upon check-out and are not included in the price details above.

What cards are you seeing the MGM destination offer on? I’m only seeing the Las Vegas one on 4 of my cards, but not getting the destination one.

So… how does this FHR booking triggers the MGM amex offer?
I booked 2 night stay at Bellagio through FHR. Didn’t get the offer confirmation email but waited few days hoping that when the charge posts, it will be from MGM. But no, this is what I see as charge posted.

AMEX FINE HOTELS RES800-297-2977 WA

No amex offer confirmation email and my MGM offer is still on my account as unclaimed. Will this eventually work? I am ready to just cancel and book directly through mlife.
