How soon will my reward be posted after I purchase it?

    I'm not seeing the answer to this question in the FAQs. I am trying to get to a certain chip level to buy something before we go in a little over a month. It may take me the whole time to get there, but was wondering how that works. TIA!

    Not exactly sure what you're asking. But for all rewards I have redeemed, you are given a redemption code immediately after purchasing with LPs. If it's a room, you call and book with that code. If it's a buffet or whatever, you take your code to the MLife desk at that particular hotel and they put your reward on your card. Just remember to purchase before you leave to go to Las Vegas because once you get out there, you will be limited due to location and restrictions they have placed on locals. Hope that helps. If that wasn't your question, try to rephrase and I can help you.

    Thanks BigGTMike. You did answer my question. I just didn't know how the redemption process worked. I'm working on two buffets, so now I know that I will get a code and then take that code to the MLife desk at that casino to redeem. Thanks for your help.

    I purchased a buffet a few hours before my flight on June 27 and wrote down the redemption code, redeemed at players club with no problems.
    Keep in mind, go to the players club the day you plan to eat at the buffet.

    Yeah, the rewards are immediate. Make sure you buy what you want BEFORE you leave because, once you're in Vegas, you won't be able to see or buy most of them. When the site senses your URL is located in Vegas, the non-local rewards disappear. I always buy any I think I will use prior to the trip then get a LP refund on the ones I don't use, since I can't decide to just buy one while in Vegas.

    I can confirm that rewards do indeed post immediately. I purchased the wrong monorail reward and didn't realize it till I got to the counter. I was able to let the couple behind me go first, buy the right reward from the mobile app, and then immediately redeem it at the counter. I was also able to nearly immediately buy the Mandalay Bay buffet and use it (I had to VPN into work to be able to buy it though since I was already in Vegas at the time).
