I thought this deserved its own post since it is going to be affecting other rewards within the month. After a discussion about this just a few days ago, I hate to say I told you so, but......... INFORMATION FROM MYVEGAS REGARDING THE NEW ARIA BUFFET REWARD RESTRICTIONS: myVEGAS Rewards: New Room Stay Requirements Q:The rewards are getting worse! A: We are sorry you feel this way; we are working hard to bring you the best Las Vegas experience possible. Q:Why did you do this?! A: As you have experienced, we are continuing to refine the benefits of our rewards program. The new changes will impact some players more than others, but our goal is to ensure an appropriate balance of value between our players and our partners. We instrument and carefully measure every feature so we can evaluate its effectiveness. As such, our current program required refinement. Q:What about locals? Do they need to stay the night? A: We offer some rewards that are only available for our out of town guests; these happen to be some of them so locals will not be affected. Q:Will this be happening to more rewards and if so which ones? A: Yes, you will see this in more rewards that will be releasing throughout the month. We are not sure which ones yet, which is why we will continue to encourage players to get the rewards they want while they are available. The rewards are constantly evaluated, revised and republished based on the needs of their business. Q:If I already purchased one of these rewards but have not used it yet, will I be required to add a room stay? A: No, the original terms on your previously purchased reward will be honored. Please bring your printed redemption email confirmation stating the date it was purchased and the original terms when redeeming at the property. Q:Is this like FREEPLAY where I need to be staying at that particular hotel? A: No, you can be staying at any MGM property! Q:Can my room stay be an Mlife offer, comp, or myVEGAS Reward or will it need to be a paid night? A: Yes, you can use any offer as long as you are staying at a MGM property and are a registered guest on the room reservation. Q:I’ve heard of players not being able to redeem their reward because they did not book the room, will this happen to my husband and me? A: No, as long as you both add your names to the room upon check-in. The Mlife agent will validate and confirm this when you redeem your reward.
