MGM Comps

Hey Party People,

I get to Vegas about 3-4 times a year and am almost always loyal to MGM properties. I just recently got back from a stay at the Aria and they have offered me a couple comped nights (weeknights) in the next six months. I'm by no means a high roller but my play (95% table games) is enough to get some comps here or there. I do not have a host or anything like that.

My question comes from perusing the Mlife website today. I have over a dozen offers available to me from Vegas resorts, but it is not exactly easy to see the most competitive offer from each one at the same time. Since my play was at the Aria most recently, that's where they gave me a couple comped nights. Why is there not carryover from one resort to another? I would think that if I can get a couple comped weeknights at a premium resort like the Aria, why wouldn't I be able to get weekend nights or more nights from a lower tier resort like NYNY? Is there a special number I should call when I book my next trip to ask?

Also, has anyone had good experiences booking multiple rooms at a preferential rate when planning a larger trip? Thanks everyone!

1st off, NEVER book on the MGM website. I always call MLife VIP for the property I am interested in. They always have the same offers per hotel you see on the webpage, but often with a better offer. Example: Webpage = 2 weeknights...Operator...2 weeknight, $150 free play, $100 dining credit.
Do your research on the webpage, then call. Also note the Expiration date of when the offer expires, because not much operator can do to change that

Generally the rule is if your don't play there, don't expect a room offer. They are not transferable usually between properties but I do know a friend who gets comps at one MGM property and she called a different property her mother had booked at and get a comp but it only works if you speak to someone it seems and be really really nice. My friend said that worked for her so good luck.

From what I know, you can't booked multiple comp rooms at once but one time I called at ARIA, I got 3 different comp(s) and the person on the phone booked all three on the same nights but I believe that was just a special request. Make sure you call and ask for request, good luck on your trip!

While all the resorts are MGM properties the casinos operate as separate entities.
While VIP marketing may allow a similar comp to one offered at a sister casino that is not always the case unless you have a well known play history.
Same thing for LOCs. My line at Aria is of no consequence at Bellagio.
Never hurts to call.

I agree to NOT use MLife to book your casino services and see what they can offer you...interesting comment that you receive offers from only the MGM properties you have any play...I just checked my Mlife account and have offers from some MGM properties I have not played at in years.
