There’s a new widely-available Amex Offer out for MGM Hotels & Resorts: Spend $250+, get either 5,000 Membership Rewards points or $50 back (depending on the card/offer). This offer has come around previously, but it’s back for a new term through January 7, 2019 — and that’s good timing since you could stack this with double Hyatt points if you’re planning to visit Las Vegas.

The Deal

  • New Amex Offers out for either 5,000 Membership Rewards or $50 back (see your offer) on $250+ at MGM Resorts (including properties in Las Vegas, Mississippi, Atlantic City, Maryland, and Massachusetts

Key Terms

  • Expires 1/7/19
  • Excludes gift card purchases and air & hotel packages
  • Terms state reservations must be made through MGM resorts online at mlife.com, by phone, or via mobile app
  • See your offer for complete terms

Quick Thoughts

Note that not all MGM hotels and resorts are included in the offer. For instance, MGM Detroit is not included in the list, and the terms do state that “all other MGM properties” are excluded. While the terms state that you must book directly with MGM to trigger the offer, bookings through Fine Hotels & Resorts have successfully triggered past offers as those are usually charged directly by the property.

If you value Membership Rewards at more than $0.01 each, that version of the offer is the stronger value. Our Reasonable Redemption Values have our expectation for Membership Rewards to be 1.82 cents (remember that those are based on a “reasonable” redemption – you can certainly do better), making the points worth around $91. Of course, they aren’t cash and may be used for more or less value depending on what you do with them. Still, I’d be happy to take the points if I had a trip to Vegas planned.

Keep in mind also that Hyatt is offering double points on MGM stays through December 29, 2018, so you can stack this offer with that one and get even more bang for your buck. As always, we have added this offer to our list of Current Amex Offers.

[…] a day seems to go by without there being an MGM Resorts Amex Offer available. No sooner had one ended than a new one appeared offering either $60 back or 6,000 Membership Rewards when spending $300 or […]


Nick I keep seeing Amex offers on your site. I have three Amex cards but none seem to be the ones that the offers apply to. Can you guide me as to which cards are affiliated with the Amex Deals you post regularly? I know you have a page listing the cards but there are a number of them. Thanks.


Thanks. No, I did not know that I had to add the deals to the cards. Thanks for that information. Occasionally, there is a deal with Amazon if one uses the reward points. I have reward points but I guess they don’t apply to the amazon deals. I have a Platinum Delta, blue and a Hilton Honors Express. I think I need to get another card that has those reward points applied. I will check out your links. Thanks again for your information on the offers.

[…] Then, next year, you should be able to hop back on the merry-go-ground since Hyatt status expires in February but your M life status is valid through September. Of course, that could change at any time — but you should pick up M life Gold now to be ready. It might also come in handy for getting some sort of benefit (i.e. not much, but something beats nothing) if you’re planning to take advantage of the MGM Amex Offer we posted earlier. […]


Only got the $50 back offer on my brand-new Rose Gold card. How do I get the 5K membership points offer instead? Any trick to add the points offer instead of cash back?


Can this be combined with fhr booking?…haven’t checked but any good mgm hotels included in fhr?
