    Hi everyone, my girlfriend is going to Vegas at the end of the month. We both play MyVegas but I've accumulated more LPs than she has so I want to redeem the "O" show for her. So the question is can I redeem a reward using my account but using her name/email address when completing the transaction instead? We both have Mlife accounts.

    So in a nutshell, can you "gift" a reward for someone else?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't gift a reward. It's 1 account per person and rewards are nontransferable.

    So the only way around this is for me to actually claim the reward and then pass off the voucher/ticket to her?

    For a show, this would be okay. You'd have to pickup the ticket for her and give it to her physically. For something like a food voucher, your name will actually be on it, so you can't even give those to her.

    You'd have to pick them up with your ID and your Mlife card.

    All my redemption e-mails have my name on it.

    This is what I'm curious about... When I purchase my reward, it prompts me for first/last name and email address. So instead of putting my information, I put my girlfriend's instead. Wouldn't the redemption e-mail have her name instead and would she be able to claim it on her Mlife account?

    Unless the redemption code is somehow already linked to my Mlife account. Need some clarification.

    From what I understand once you redeem a gift on an account that info is linked to that account forever...can't change it. I have a second account and didn't realize this so when I go to Vegas in June I am going to let my bro-in law use it but once i do this that account will be tied to him and can't change it in the future.

    The only ones you can gift are the ones from the Viva myVegas app. I have been gifted a few things before.
