    This is my first time getting some decent mlife offers and would like to know how it works. Can I use 2 different offers at 2 different hotels? For example I have an offer for 2 complimentary nights at Excalibur (need to call to get the offer). I also have one free night at other hotels when I book 2 nights. So can I use my free Excalibur nights for 2 nights and move to another hotel and use a free night there when I book 2 extra nights? So basically pay for 2 days and get 3 free?

    Also is there resort fees for complimentary stays?

    I also see some nights that are restricted. Can I assume that if the specific day is not restricted I will not have a problem booking it or do the days change as they get more booked.

    I see something about a 72 hour rule. So I guess I can't use 2 offers? Myvegas would be included in the 72 hour rule? I have enough points for a few nights with myvegas also

    In my experience you have to wait 72 hours between the Mlife offers. The casino rates or your tier discounted rates do not apply. I am unsure of using MyVegas as I have never used that for a free room. Mirage and Mandalay Bay do not charge resort fees on comped nights. I cannot remember if Excalibur did or not last time I stayed there. Usually they comp off the two most expensive nights, so if you call the VIP number for Excalibur they might have a good deal for you on the other nights.

    There is a 72 hour rule for MLife offers. When using both MyVegas free nights and MLife offers, there are currently no restrictions and they can be done back to back.

    For MLife offers, they say they require you to have 72 hours in between stays to be able to use two offers at once. But on more than one occasion I have booked the first offer nights on the phone and then the remaining offer online on the MLife website and have had no issues. But - book at your own risk. I had a back up plan just in case.

    most charge you resort fees. Aria,MGM, NYNY and Mirage do for sure. But Excalibur does not. I've stayed at these hotels most recently.

    Good luck!

    Thanks guys.

    Maybe I can squeeze in 2 offers because I usually go for a week. Maybe I can use the offers on the first few days and the last few days. When it says one free night with 2 night stay does that mean I have to pay for 2 nights before I get a free night or do I just have to book 2 nights and one is free?

    I would take that as a 2 night stay with one paid, one free but you should call to make sure.

    Remember, MGM is very good at back end comps so if you give them any sort of play ask to see a Host before you check out or while checking out ask the desk clerk to call a host for you. They might comp off the resort fees if you are a low roller or meals if you mid roll. Make sure to charge everything to your room.

    MGM Grand did not charge me resort fees on my three night comp two weeks ago. Aria has never charged me a resort fee when staying on a comp or via MyVegas.

    I was charged on my comp nights. We checked out this past friday. We had a mess with our room so when I mentioned that on the survey yesterday they sent me an email and they said they are refunding them as a gesture of goodwill because of our inconvenience. I'll have to ask at check in next time because the agent even made it a point to say we were paying for the resort fees on the comp nights.

    I had the resort fees charged on 2 comp nights 2 weeks ago at MGM but they comped them off on the back end based on play. I believe platinum and above don't get changed the beer with Mlife as a benefit.

    This is going to be a long one but I'll try.

    I just booked our flights for our trip. Arriving on Wednesday 19th of August and checking out on 2nd of September, so 14 nights. My MLife tier discounted price for these would be:

    19. $75.24
    20. $75.24
    21. $136.04
    22. $158.84
    23. $75.24
    24. $75.24
    25. $102.60

    26. $102.60
    27. $75.24
    28. $136.04
    29. $158.84
    30. $64.60
    31. $64.60
    1. $64.60

    So rooms $1364,96
    Resort fees $454.72 (Are you kidding me?)
    Room tax $163.80
    Grand total of $1983.48

    So... I've got 3 different offers on my table. 2 of these are only valid till the end of July so I'm completely aware that these couldn't be booked now but for the sake of this post let's pretend they would be good.

    Offers are:

    YOUR MARCH MIRAGE OFFER!
    2 Complimentary nights (Sunday-Thursday) OR 1 Complimentary night (Friday-Saturday) in a Deluxe Room
    Additional nights from $37

    YOUR M LIFE SPRING OFFER!
    THE Mirage • LAS VEGAS, NV
    $75 in FREEPLAY®
    Complimentary Deluxe Room for Two Nights
    $75 M life Resort Credit

    FEBRUARY 2015 JULY 2015 LUXURY OFFER
    THE MIRAGE • LAS VEGAS, NV
    Two Complimentary Nights in a Deluxe Room Sunday - Thursday and a Special Rate from $69 per night

    So, given that there has to be 72 hour promotional difference and if there were no blackout dates for the ones I'm looking for it would look like this:

    19. [strike]$75.24[/strike] SPRING
    20. [strike]$75.24[/strike] SPRING
    21. $136.04
    22. $158.84
    23. $75.24
    24. $75.24
    25. [strike]$102.60[/strike] LUXURY

    26. [strike]$102.60[/strike] LUXURY
    27. $75.24
    28. $136.04
    29. $158.84
    30. [strike]$64.60[/strike] MARCH
    31. [strike]$64.60[/strike] MARCH
    1. $64.60

    So that would mean: Room rates $1364.96, Taxes $93.60, Resort fees $259,84 (I didn't play RFs last time when I booked comped rooms)
    Grand total of $1233,52.

    So onto the question, do I have to wait until all my offers are valid for my dates or if I were to call them and give them the numbers above, could they give me a fixed price close to the grand total above? The thing is that calling from Finland is like $.40 per minute so I'm looking to keep the call as short as possible. Thanks for your replies in advance.

    Have you stayed that long at one property before? Sometimes they don't want you staying so long because its hard to keep you gambling at a level they want for your stay. Based on your offers they are expecting a theo of around $450-500 per day. They might want you to check out in-between. You can always email Mlife with some of these questions. They might be able to answer some so when you call it will be a short one.

    I believe you need to check out between the offers. For the call, try an app like Skype that offers significantly cheaper long distance.

    Yes, I've stayed at The Mirage on both of my trips and 14 nights each time. Last time around I booked only 2 offers and was able to link them together so I didn't have to check out in between. But the problem is now that I'm supposed to wait now to get new offers which are valid and I'd rather get it over with now if possible.

    But I suppose they are alright with my long stays, otherwise why would they keep sending me these offers? :)
