Back in late February, many readers may have matched their MGM Gold status to Hyatt Explorist status. MGM status runs through September 30th, so your Gold status likely dropped to Sapphire this week. If you have Hyatt Explorist or higher status, you can now match to MGM M Life Gold, which will be valid through September 30, 2019 — which will likely give you a chance to stay on the status merry-go-round by hopping back on with Hyatt Explorist when status expires in February 2019.
To hop back on the merry-go-round, log in to your Hyatt account and go to this page. Scroll down to the M life section and click the blue “opt in” button. That will bring you to a special M life page where you will be prompted to log in to your M life account. I had actually already logged into my M life account in another tab, but it still prompted me to enter my email address and password. If you have trouble, try starting the process by logging into both your Hyatt and M life accounts in separate tabs and go back to the Hyatt partnerships page and click “opt in”.
After you are prompted to enter your M life account information, your status should be updated to Gold right away.
Then, next year, you should be able to hop back on the merry-go-ground since Hyatt status expires in February but your M life status is valid through September. Of course, that could change at any time — but you should pick up M life Gold now to be ready. It might also come in handy for getting some sort of benefit (i.e. not much, but something beats nothing) if you’re planning to take advantage of the MGM Amex Offer we posted earlier.
