myVEGAS Reward Redemption Processes

(updated August , 2016)
When myVEGAS launched, the only Rewards available were from MGM/Mlife. That meant the Reward redemption process was fairly consistent. Now that myVEGAS has so many partners, it can get confusing. Here are the Reward redemption processes for each of the myVEGAS partners.

MGM/Mlife Rewards:
This applies to Rewards from Aria, Bellagio, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York – New York and Vdara in Las Vegas as well as Beau Rivage and  Gold Strike on the Gulf Coast.
For rooms and shows, you will receive an email with the Rewards code and a ‘Click to  Redeem’ link that you will need to use to book your room online. The link should   be http://mlife.com/mgm-web/deeplink/en/v1/myvegas/xxxxxx  (with the xxxxxx at the end being replaced by your redemption code).
