Getting More myVEGAS Rewards

About a month ago, someone contacted me about the non-seasonal 2-Comp Night Rewards (which I then researched and wrote about in my Two versions of myVEGAS Two Night Comp Room Rewards post). I hadn’t been able to see those Rewards until I made some chip purchases. Even then, the 2-Night Comp Rewards didn’t show up instantly. I had made $30 in chip purchases over the course of a week when they appeared. I do not know what amount triggered it since nothing changed instantly. It wasn’t until logging in one morning that the new 2-Night Rewards appeared.

I took a little break from buying chips, but then started down a path to see what else happened when purchasing more chips.  After about $51 in total chip purchases, a few things happened.
4 Rewards in 30 Days notice

First, I can now use 4 Rewards in 30 days instead of the usual 3 in 30. I also have VIP Level 4 status in the Facebook game as well as the myKonami app and myVEGAS Slots app. That status will vary based upon play, but it lasts for a while and gives some nice free chip bonuses in those games. I’ve already earned enough MVPs to renew at Level 4 / Emerald. The free chip amounts on my mySTRIP properties are about 10x what they used to be.

Some players have reported having their limits increased to  5  in 30 for spending anywhere for $200 – $500 on chips.   A few have reported getting 6 in 30, but that is after spending about $1000 .

Was it worth buying chips? That is a tough one, but I think it ultimately was worth it for me. I hadn’t expected that. It could pay for itself in a single trip, but I have multiple trips lined up for Mlife properties around the country in the next few months and the 4th Reward will make a difference.  I do not see value in spending even more to get a 5th or 6th Reward, though.

  1. I’ve been playing myVegas and Konami slots for a while, I’ve bought about $30 of chips in both, and I’ve never seen any comp room rewards. Is it just because it’s summer? Do I need to wait for the less busy season?

    1. Launch MyVegas Facebook game and you’ll see rewards you don’t see in other games.

      1. I still don’t see them. So that means they’re showing up for other people, just not for me?

        1. It’s weird. My wife sees rewards on the MyVegas mobile app that I don’t. She’s higher level than me. I’ve spent nearly $80 across all apps and see a lot of rewards on Facebook web based MyVegas and Pop Slots games that I don’t see on other games. You should at least be seeing 1 night comps at Excalibur and other hotels. Maybe not Aria. Check Pop Slots. Play Studios seems to be cryptic about how things work.

          I’d contact their support.

  2. How much do I need to spend to get the two nights comp at Mandalay Bay $30 or $50?

    1. I have a spreadsheet that I keep track of my purchases and make some notes. From my notes I noticed the 2 nights at Mandalay Bay appear after $75. That doesn’t mean it took that much because it may have showed up prior to that.

    2. I noticed 2 night comp at Mandalay Bay after $75 (looking at the notes on my spreadsheet that I have.) It may have shown up prior to that much and I didn’t notice it.

  3. I play myVegas slots and popslots on my phone. I also play myVegas slots on the computer, but notice that my chip count is drastically different (lower) on the computer from that on the phone. The LP count is the same on both. Any idea why?

    1. The red chip counts are different since the games are independent of each other (the Facebook, PopSlots, myVEGAS Slots app, myKONAMI app, myVEGAS Blackjack app, etc. all have their own in-game chip totals). You see the same LP count since they are linked to your overall myVEGAS account (that’s a good thing).

  4. I’ve spent about $55 in a week. I just crossed the $50 mark tonight and didn’t see a change in the amount of rewards I could get. Some details that may be a factor. I haven’t ever bought and redeemed rewards with loyalty points (gold coins). We have a trip in 4 weeks and I’ve been saving points. I got massively lucky on big wins and accumulated over 350K LPs, so I have plenty to spend. I just bought a 2 night reward to tag onto the 3 night package I bought for this trip last year. Maybe after I redeem it I will see 4th reward? Maybe I need to spend a few more dollars and get over $60 spent? I don’t know, but I’m not spending much more now. For me it’s counter productive. I will say this, after buying enough coins to hit VIP level 4 (Emerald) it was about that time I saw the 2 night rewards at both Luxor and Excalibur show up.

    Any insight on this? I keep reading that spend $50 to $60 on chips to unlock that 4th reward. The Play Studios FAQ site says “There are certain spending and gaming thresholds which, if surpassed, allow players to claim more than 3 MGM rewards within 30 days. This depends on a player’s progress, chip purchases, and reward redemptions. The exact thresholds are not publicly disclosed and are subject to change.” Well, my progress got me to over level 400. I’m at VIP level 4 now, and I’ve spent over $50. The reward redemptions has me wondering if you have to have some prior history of using rewards before you get bumped up. So that’s my main question to the author. Had you redeemed rewards prior?

        1. I did forget to add one detail to my experience. Your article said you noticed that the free chip amounts on the mySTRIP properties are about 10x what they used to be after hitting over $50 in chips. I didn’t notice that. I see random amounts come up, some that are often quite higher than usual. Just not consistent.

          I did notice recently getting 50 LPs (golds chips) sometimes, and even 100 LPs on my biggest properties. I did complete the full strip. (I noticed on that it didn’t matter how much I bet, so I bet low and just let it autospin a lot while doing other things. Completing all buildings took a while.

          1. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
            I had completed mySTRIP long before I ever bought any chips, so that may have been part of it. The different properties don’t have the same amount show up each time, but they went from 3&4 figure amounts to 4&5 figure amounts (the helicopter and chapel are still 3 figures sometimes). I get 500 LPs from the bigger properties at least once a week and 50,000 chips is common from those properties.
            Those changes took place after I bought about $50 in chips and hit Tier 4. I have dropped to Tier 3 and I am still getting the same type of payouts from each of the properties, so the Tier might not be a factor. I’m at Level 801, too. Not sure where I was when I did the test.

  5. If we are planning on staying February 13-15, can we redeem the points now and book the rooms for those dates? Sorry, this is my 1st trip using myvegas points…

    1. Yes. The “Redeem reward by” date is the date you need to book the room by. The actual stay can still be for any available date on the calendar during the travel window. The sooner you book the dates the better.

    1. Your number of coins shouldn’t matter. Your level might. As far as I know you should be able to see at least some Comp Room Rewards as soon as you start playing myVEGAS, though.

  6. People are reporting they are now booking rooms into June once you purchase . We just booked Bellagio for Jan 5 and Jan 6. ourselves. Merry Christmas everyone.

    1. That is great! I am starting to see ‘book by’ and travel window updates. No word yet on new calendars, though.

  7. I am looking to use my 2 comp room reward for January, is there any way I can figure out if the dates I am going are covered?

    1. Hi.
      I’m not sure how helpful it will be, but if you let me know where you want to stay, I can post a link to this past year’s 2 night comp calendar.
      It is worth noting that if you have already purchased the 2 night Reward in hopes of using it in January, it will not work. It is only good for the dates on the calendar when you get it. You will have to wait for the Rewards and calendars to be updated for 2019 and buy the new Reward in order to have it work for January.

    1. Hi Jenny.
      I’d expect those calendars to be released by early December.

  8. Hello,

    Would anyone know when the fall comps would roughly show up for a two night stay? I’ve been buying Chips as well (just under $50) and I’m not seeing the 2 night comp for Aria or Vdara not the 4th comp option. I guess I should keep buying for now. But if the fall comps will be posted would it be better to just wait?

    Thanks everyone

    Btw this website is awesome!

    1. Thanks!
      Based on last year’s schedule, the Fall 2 Night comps would be coming out within the next few weeks, but the Summer 2 Night Comps were never released, so I wouldn’t hold my breath on Fall ones.
      $50 does seem to be the 4th Reward marker. The 2 night comp Rewards seem to use a more complicated algorithm, so I can’t give any real guidance there.

  9. What two comp room rewards are available to everyone right now? I have purchased about $45 worth of chips and the only ones I currently see are for MGM signature and the Park MGM. I wanted to know if there are other ones available to people right now that have spent more on chips or is this all everyone else sees as well?

    1. Hi Jeff,
      When I go to one app, I get no two comp rooms…
      When I go another app, I see Park, Grand West Wing, Signature Grand, Aria, Vidara, Bellagio, and Mandalay Bay (Note: these are the use w/in 30-day redemptions, subject to availability) offers.
      I haven’t purchased Chips for 2 years, but I have saved quite a few reward coins.
      Have fun,

      1. Remember that “use within 30 days” on those Rewards means that you have to use it to make your reservation within 30 days. The stay does not have to be within 30 days. The actual stay can be on any eligible day(s) on the availability calendars.

    2. I can currently see Two Comp Room Night Rewards for Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, Signature, MGM Grand, Park MGM, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, NYNY, Luxor and Excalibur (All of the Las Vegas Mlife properties).
      I am looking in the Facebook game version since I find that easier to scan through.

  10. Are there any 2 Night comps currently available for MGM Grand? I see there is a “Two Comp Room Nights” available for 95,000, but it’s for The Signature and not available for my dates in mid to late July. I’ll gladly spend $15 for chips if it will unlock 2 comp nights for the dates I will be there. July 20-25th. Thanks Mark!

    1. Hi Mike, I’m seeing Two Comp Room Nights for 95,000 in a West King Room today in addition to the one at Signature. Note: I have purchased chips in the past, but not recently. Good luck!

    2. If you can see one of them, you should be able to see both. myVEGAS does a terrible job of differentiating them, though. They both show as Two Night Comp under MGM. You have to click on the Reward to see whether it is for MGM Grand or Signature.

        1. Any chance it’s because my VIP Status isn’t high enough? I’m at an Emerald Status of 2485. Also, I’ve never purchased chips either.

          1. Both of your statuses are higher than mine. Chip purchases have usually been the deciding factor in whether you see the non-seasonal Two Night Comp rewards or not.
            Your status might be why you can see the one of them (although it seems odd that it would show Signature instead of MGM).

            1. I am leaning towards that chip-buying assumption as well. My VIP is lower than Mike’s, but I do have more comps. Makes sense they would like me to use them. I don’t know if a spend would necessarily give you access, but you never know.

              And other than the picture of the West King Room vs the Signature Suite and hovering over the description, I wouldn’t have known the difference.

              Enjoy your visit. I had a great time.

      1. Unfortunately I’m only seeing the one for The Signature under rewards. I’m pretty tech savvy and have looked all over for another reward. I’ve checked different apps (Slots, blackjack ,Facebook slots, Pop slots, myKONAMI Slots and all of them only show me the reward for 2 nights at The Signature.

        1. Both look like that to me. It is only when you go to the details that it shows whether it is MGM or Signature.
          I’m not sure why you would be able to see one, but not the other.

    3. Hello! I am confirming the chip purchases to get this reward. I over the course of the last week have gradually been buying chips (never had before) to see if I could get the 2 comp nights for MGM, as none of the other hotels had my dates available. When I hit $50, this reward showed up. Worth it to me to spend the $50 in the app to get TWO nights at a nice hotel. 🙂
      Other 2 comp nights showed up after $30 spent (Luxor, NYNY, Excalibur)
      Plus, I do also have a 4th redemption allowed in the 30 day period, so, that helps to also justify the chip purchase to me.
      PS- I see now that this does not help you since your dates are past, but leaving the comment for anyone else researching this!

      1. Thanks!
        It is always helpful to get details like this.

        Take Care,

  11. Are you showing any of the 2-Night Comp Rewards for MGM Grand right now? I’m only seeing the “Two Comp Room Nights” for 95,000 which turns out is actually for the Signature and isn’t available for any of my dates. I’ll gladly spend $15 for chips to get a Two Night comp if there are any available right now for mid/late July.

  12. Hi Mark,
    So you are the only other person I know who has a 4/30. I have, believe it or not, a 6/30. I haven’t purchased chips for a long time, but I’ve been playing for awhile now. When I spoke to an MLife Rep, she was firm with the 3/30. Have you had, or heard of, any turn-down experiences with your 4/30? I leave in a month…

    1. I have only had trouble once using 4 Mlife based Rewards in a 30 day period. In that instance, the Mlife rep (it might have taken a supervisor) overrode it add added the Reward to my card (I’m assuming that’s the kind of turn-down experience you mean).
      I know of others that have 4 in 30 and a few that have 5 in 30.

      Also, I tend to mix in other non-Mlife based Rewards, so on any given trip, I might use 6 or 7 Rewards while still keeping under my 4 in 30 Mlife Reward limit.

  13. Do they do summer comps? I have 200,000 banked and hope to use them after the 4th of July

  14. Does the one room per trip restriction go away at any point? I’ve got more points than I could probably ever use unless I can string together some hotel nights.

    1. As far as I know, the 1 Comp Room Reward per trip limitation does not go away (unless you count the 2 night Comp Rewards).
      The system also prevents you from even using your LPs to get another Comp Room Reward if you already have one in your Wallet or have already used on for an upcoming trip.
      I would suggest checking out some of the Rewards from other partners or non-room Rewards as a way to use your LPs.

  15. Hi I was wondering when the one night comps start showing up. I am new to the app and am at level 32. I have purchased more chips than I would like to admit lol and I have about 12,000 loyalty points.
    Also I’m wondering what properties are you talking about to collect free chips? Is it in my strip in the journey map? Cause when I click in them nothing happens.

    1. Hi.
      I thought you were able to see the single night comp Rewards from the beginning whether you could actually by them or not (as long as you were not in Las Vegas). If that is no longer the case, then I don’t know when those Rewards appear. Are you seeing any room discounts?

      The properties are in the Facebook version of the game, not the apps. There are 5 different myVEGAS games where you can earn and sync LPs. They are the original Facebook game and the 4 apps (myVEGAS Slots, myVEGAS Blackjack, myKonami Slots and PopSlots). If you play all of those, you will earn LPs faster.

      1. Oh thank you. Yes, I do see room discounts, but there are no free nights at all. My husband has some, but he has been playing for a long time.

  16. Mark, do you know of any way to contact customer service for PLAYSTUDIOS other than emial. I’ve tried to contact them about an issue with missing LP’s and another redemption issue… they never reply. Any help would be appreciated.

    Great site BTW…. very helpful

    1. Thanks!
      You can try their ‘Loyalty Point Redemption Line’. It is 855-881-6074.

  17. Hi Mark, just a question about the 2night rewards. When did you buy the chips, all the rewards appeared? also for the vdara and aria?
    this kind of rewards needs a high level?

    1. Hi.
      As I said in the post, I don’t know what level/amount triggered it. It had been a few days since making any purchase that they appeared.
      All of them appeared at the same time.

      1. So,
        I bought some chip and now I can see the 2night reward for some hotel only, like Luxor, MonteCarlo and NY-NY, but no 2night for Vdara.
        Until the end of december 2017, I could see them…

        1. Hmmm. Another myVEGAS mystery. I can see the Vdara 2night comp for 150,000 LPs. I am not sure why you are not able to see it. My guess is that it is another myVEGAS algorithm decision.

  18. Hey Mark,
    I have a couple of question about the 2 night comp rooms. Do the two nights have to be consecutive? Also how do you actually go about picking the dates to use them? My plan is for two of us to each use a two room comps, after we get the comps where do we go to pick the dates. and who do we contact to join up the reservations? just wondering if we could get tues, wed, thurs and then sun and pay out of pocket for fri and sat. Do you think this would work in your expert opinion.
