MGM Rewards Tier Status Accelerator 2023

MGM Rewards is running a Tier Status Accelerator promotion through the end of 2023. The Tier Accelerator adds bonus Tier Credits to your account once you hit certain thresholds in a single day. This can help you achieve a higher tier status. like Gold or Platinum, faster than you would normally be able.

Here are the daily Tier Accelerator thresholds.

Accelerator Milestone #1

Earn 5,000 Tier Credits in one promotional day, receive a 1,250 Tier Credit Bonus. That’s 6,250 Tier Credits in one day.

Accelerator Milestone #2

Earn 10,000 Tier Credits in one promotional day, receive a 5,000 Tier Credit Bonus. That’s 15,000 Tier Credits in one day.

Accelerator Milestone #3

Earn 20,000 Tier Credits in one promotional day, receive a 20,000 Tier Credit Bonus. That’s 40,000 Tier Credits in one day for Gold Tier Status in just two days.

Accelerator Milestone #4

Earn 40,000 Tier Credits in one promotional day, receive a 60,000 Tier Credit Bonus. That’s 100,000 Tier Credits in one day for Platinum Tier Status in just two days.

Only one bonus will apply per day. That means that if you hit Milestone #3 (20,000 Tier Credits) you won’t also get the Milestone #1 and #2 bonuses. Nor can a lower bonus help you achieve the next Milestone.

The promotion is only running at Las Vegas properties. The promotional day is 12:00am to 11:59pm Pacific Time. Bonuses are applied a few hours after the end of the day.

Mlife Extending Tier Credit Earning Period 31 days

I received an email from MGM / Mlife letting me know that they were extending the Tier Credit earning period for 2022 status by 31 days. They will count any Tier Credits earned in January 2022 towards both 2022 and 2023 status. (Quick reminder that when you earn Tier Credits, you are officially earning them towards your status for the following year).

I can understand why they wouldn’t want to simply extend your tier status for another year like they did last year, but giving me 31 more more days seems like an empty gesture. I have had minimal time in the casinos this year and have no plans to go this January. This promo certainly isn’t going to change that. If you are a few credits shy of achieving the next Mlife tier, though, I hope it helps you.

Why should I charge things to my room?

I’ve noticed that some people I talk to never charge anything to their room or are hesitant to do room charges for various reasons. Sometimes it is for their own money management. Sometimes they don’t want to leave a card on file for room charges or have the hotel put a hold on their card. Sometimes they see it as a security precaution, erroneously thinking that if they don’t charge anything to their room, nothing will be charged and they don’t have to check their bill when they check out. I charge as many of my expenses as possible to my room. This is why.

myVEGAS Room Rewards Availability Calendars for 2021

Although the Rewards say to “Redeem by December 5”, the current Travel Window is only through September 30, 2021.
There is generally a lot of availability between now and then. I’d expect the travel windows to extend a bit further soon.

As a general rule, Comp Room Rewards are not available for weekends, although Park MGM is showing the weekend of September 10&11 as available. The 25% and Fixed Rate discount Rewards are available for almost every day. You can usually get just as good a deal if not better simply by logging in to your Mlife account or using a readily available deal from a site like my MarksLasVegasDeals.com site.

If you have never purchased myVEGAS chips, you might not be able to see all of the comp Rewards in the app. I discuss this in my  Getting More myVEGAS Rewards post.

I have not created graphics for it yet, so here they are in text format.
