In October, your Mlife Tier Credits reset as usual. That is also when Mlife typically makes small tweaks to the program. This time, they are delaying those changes until December 15th. I think most players won’t see a difference.
The 2 biggest changes I see are that you will no longer receive Express Comps for table game play in Las Vegas and the new Points (POINTPlay/FREEPLAY) and Express Comps expiration for Sapphire players.
For table games in Las Vegas, you will still earn comps, but those will be handled through an Mlife rep or host. I don’t see that as a big change since they already handle the larger portion of your table games comps. There is no change for table games players at Beau Rivage, Gold Strike Tunica or MGM Grand Detroit.
The Point and Express Comp expiration after 12 months of inactivity remains the same for Pearl, Gold, Platinum and Noir players. It has been shortened to 6 months of inactivity for Sapphire players.
“Activity” includes any Point or Tier Credit earning. This means that any eligible play or spend that earns M life points or Tier Credits will keep your account active. Note that this inactivity period takes effect on December 15th, so Sapphire players who have not had any activity since June 15th will lose their Points and Express Comps on December 15th. I’m fairly certain that they are delaying the implementation of the changes until December 15 in order to give due notice to players who may lose their Points and Express Comps on December 15th.
I think it is worth mentioning that Total Rewards has been using the same policy of losing your comp credits after 6 months of inactivity at all tiers for many years.
There are also a few tier benefit changes:
- Entertainment discounts will be a flat-rate discount for all Mlife players instead of being tier-based.
- Platinum players will no longer have a dedicated concierge line, but can still call VIP services for the same assistance.
- Turndown Service is no longer a Platinum benefit.
- Platinum and NOIR members receive ‘The Platinum Experience’ where they receive a welcome letter and a unique MGM Resort experience upon check-in, compliments of Mlife.
- NOIR Members will still receive “Guaranteed Dining Reservations”, but it is no longer for the “Best Table Available”.
