    I have a Mlife credit card and hence the pearl status. From what I understand, there are different check-in lines depending on the tier status. Which is the check-in line I should be using while checking into Mirage and Luxor? TIA.

    Generally the special check-in line is Gold & higher. Buffet line is Pearl & higher.
    I am very sure Mirage check-in line is Gold & higher.

    Mirage is definitely gold and higher. I think Luxor was pearl and higher, as I remember being surprised when seeing this. line Is all the way to the right of the checkin desk. The agent asked if I had one of the cards on the sign when I approached, so she checked before helping me. So, you can easily check the sign to verify if you don't want to try and be turned away.

    Checked my trip report from Luxor and I had mentioned that Luxor checkin was Pearl and Above. Attached cropped photo of checkin and you can kind of make out the pearl card as the left card on the top list of cards for checkin. Of course, this was just as the CC was being introduced so they might of changed it since then with the auto pearl for CC holders, but this was in June 2016.

    One of the benefits of the MLife credit card says priority line check-in. Wondering if card holders are clubbed with gold line for Mirage.

    I totally forgot about VIP check-in at Mirage. Doh!! I stood in the long line and didn't remember the VIP until I was all the way to the front.

    Anyone have any updates of what it takes to qualify for priority check-in at the Luxor? My eta is 7pm to check-in on the Friday before NYE so I'm looking into the priority line's qualifications. Do you need a card in hand? Can I just sign up for MLife with zero "status" and still use the line? Do you actually have to book the room through MLife?

    A new card with 0 status definitely not good regardless you booked through MLife or not. You need to be a active Pearl or above to use the priority line.
    They could verify and refuse to check you in. If it's not busy time and the line is short, probably no one cares.

    Pro tip for checking in at Luxor, use the north side check in desk. Very few peeps know about it and there's almost never a line. It's technically there for the Towers but you can use it for the Pyramid too.

    Thanks, so I'll be dropped off in a cab/uber, is there a separate entrance? Luxor is one of the few resorts I've never been to

    Edit, googled the property map, there is a separate North entrance off of Reno Ave

    I picked up the MGM Master Card earlier this year, so I was upgraded to Pearl status. I checked into the Luxor last week and they had a separate window for players with pearl status and above. I checked in around noon when there was a huge check in line. No line at the other window; took two minutes and I was on my way
