    Has anyone else found their M life tier credit amount has risen over the past month....without
    even being near Las Vegas, or any other M life property?

    I have! Since my last trip to the Bellagio in August, my tier credits has grown three
    separate times. I am concerned, because I'm now at approx. 190,000 pts., just short
    of regaining my Platinum status. I'm sure hoping that it will rise one more time and
    put me at that level!
    This is such a tease!

    @Priv8guy - at least it's upward, just kidding! Scary that the mlife database is so flaky - how can anyone figure out the real numbers?

    My tier credits stayed the same but my HGS (Holiday Gift Shop) points have decreased by 60,000 points! Beyond flaky.Guess I'll wait another month and check again to see what the number is..
    Anyone know who to contact at mlife that has access to the real numbers???

    Honestly I don't really care anymore. I've been as "low" as Sapphire and as "high" as Gold and haven't really noticed any difference in the offers I get or comps that come my way.

    About the only tangible benefit that I appreciated at Gold was the faster check in line or the ability to use the Gold and above check in lounge in certain resorts, but aside from that...whatever. My room/Freeplay/Resort Credit offers have stayed pretty consistent for years, based on play, regardless of my Mlife tier. My level of play will never allow me to even get a sniff of Platinum.

    I've been a loyal Mlife guy for almost 5 years but have decided to get into Identity in a big way next year. Love me some Cosmo.

    I have been NOIR, then down to Plat. Visits slowed down and they dropped my freeplay per visit even though play level was still high. So, I visited less. Guess what, they dropped freeplay even though my play was equal or even higher. So, I visit less. I am 8,000 short of plat this year and made a special effort to NOT visit. Hopefully I will be less inclined to visit and therefore donate less money.

    They might think they are being smart by lowering my benefits and offers, but it works out way better for me. If they enticed me by leaving me at Noir, or keep my freeplay worth a visit, they would get way more money from me.

    Oh well.

    Thing is I don't think there's a "they" there. It's all a computer algorithm.

    I used to think like this...when they dropped me down from Gold I got all indignant and said "well screw them if they don't let me stay at Gold I won't stay with them!" Then I looked at my coin-in and realized, yeah, I wasn't playing as much as before, so I didn't really have a gripe.

    I mean I'm sure if you were Noir you had/have a host but even they can't bend the rules too much; yeah your play stayed the same but you say your visits went down so that's the computer saying "this guy's not spending enough to get the SkyLoft anymore".

    Not saying it's right, but that's the system we play under.

    I've been MLife gold for as long as I can remember. Started going to MGM in @ 1994 or 5. Fairly consistent play and consistent offers.
    The only main "inconsistency" is that on many occasions I was able to use the private/VIP check-in, and on my last trip I got the boot. I guess they raised it to Platinum. But very strange, because the trip before that, (@ 3 months earlier,) I used the VIP check-in with no problem.
    I sometimes wonder if any of the employees have any clue.
    On a side note, my offers from Venetian dropped to zero this round. I had a low-play trip in July, but have been a very consistent player there as well. Also been playing at Venetian for years. Had a couple other low-play trips in the past but didn't affect my comps. So not sure what's going on.
    Cheers!

    According to the mLife web-site Gold does qualify for priority check-in line. Their employees probably don't have a clue.
