    I have already redeemed two rewards so I know I am limited to one more. Curious, if I see some things I want, should I but them and only redeem the one I want to use when there, or will not not allow me to buy another after I redeem my third reward. I was thinking about getting the freeplay just in case I want to use it. I really wanted to do a show but right now, shows are blacked out during my trip on the Myvegas, I assume they are reworking the point structure for them but not sure.

    You should be able to buy more than you are allowed to redeem. You may get a warning that you're over your limit, but it will allow you to proceed.

    No. It is my understanding that you can't get more than your limit of any category of reward.

    If you are limited to 3 mLife rewards, then that's all you can get (buy). You can, however, get any number of other category rewards up to their limit.

    Only if they've made a change (which is possible). I have definitely bought more than the limit of mLife rewards in the past, then refunded the ones that I didn't use. I believe the last time that I did that was last September.

    I guess I will wait and see if shows open up. I'm only able to get 50 in free play due to the number of nights I am staying

    You can definitely buy more rewards than you're allowed. You'll get a popup warning you about reaching the limit, but you won't have any issues when you go to redeem X amount on your trip. I do believe there is a limit on how many rewards can be refunded within a certain period though.

    I usually buy 6 or 7 (allowed 3/30) and redeem what I feel like whilst there. It's easy to refund the ones you don't use.

    I have purchased 9 rewards for my upcoming trip. Haven't decided which ones I want to use, but I'll decide while I'm out there. You do get a pop up when you try to purchase a reward beyond your limit, but just hit ok to bypass it. For a show, I would highly recommend calling and booking before you go.

    The subject says "not redeem" but the post says 'redeem"?

    You can buy as many as you want. You can only redeem three. Some people buy extra and then get it refunded when they go back home. This is because they are not sure what they are going to use, and then cannot decide while in Vegas because most of the rewards will not show with a Vegas IP.
