How-to: Match Hyatt status to MGM M life status

by jeffreySeptember 3, 2013

The Deal

Back in June, Hyatt and MGM announced a partnership that extends reciprocal benefits to the members of each other’s loyalty programs. In practice, this means that Hyatt Gold Passport Members will earn Hyatt points in addition to M life points aka “tier credits” when staying at any of the 12 MGM properties in Las Vegas. Similarly, MGM M life members will be able to earn M “tier credits” when staying at any Hyatt property worldwide.

How to Qualify for M life/Hyatt Gold Passport Status

  • Hyatt Member <–> M life Sapphire
  • Hyatt Platinum <–> M life Gold
  • Hyatt Diamond <–> M life Platinum

  5. Start enjoying your new benefits! Including:

Don’t forget: 

  • You can redeem Hyatt Gold Passport points at M Life hotels and resorts in Las Vegas.
  • Your new reciprocal status is available immediately upon registering
  • When you check-in to Hyatt, you can opt to earn either HGP points or M Life points.

BOTTOM LINE: GREAT NEWS. This new relationship should be extremely valuable for Hyatt elites (will now be considered for room upgrades in Vegas) and even more valuable for MGM M Life elites (who will now enjoy the benefits of being elite at all Hyatt properties worldwide).
