    Been playing awhile now leading up to trip in 6 weeks. Have accrued 150,000 loyalty points. I am only now looking at the rewards and more to the point, terms and conditions....

    i think im in trouble... (or this is not what i was expecting....)

    1) usage limited to 3 rewards/30 days - so this is usage limit for claiming the MGM reward in vegas only? ie No restriction claiming the rewards before the trip? And there is no limit on other rewards ie monorail , or wolfgang?
    2) i am not staying at MGM property, so half the rewards are useless to me. What are some of the good rewards for non MGM properties that people look/wait for? I was more interested in food & bev rewards. trips/tours not interested in.

    3) can you redeem rewards in vegas and then go to rewards desk to load on card? is there a time lag between redeeming and using?

    Dont see how i am going to use my points 6000 at a time for 2 for 1 cocktails. Been abit of a wasted exercise me thinks....

    1. Yes. mLife rewards are limited to 3 used/redeemed per 30 days, but you can purchase as many as you have loyalty points for. When you purchase them, you have 90 days to use/redeem them or you lose them. You can refund the reward in that 90 days to get your points back, but I believe they limit you to 5 refunds per month, otherwise you have to contact their support.

    As for the other rewards, the only other rewards that carry these types of purchase limits is the Stations Casinos rewards, which are a limit of 2 per rolling 24 hours.

    3. You can purchase then redeem while in Vegas, but they limit the rewards available to locals so a lot of rewards won't even show up for purchase. Since you will be logging in to purchase while in Vegas, the system recognizes this and will consider you local at that time. They have banned people in the past who try to circumvent this, so keep that in mind.
