I won’t be staying at an MGM property and would like to still use rewards that require a one night stay. My plan is to buy a one-night stay at Excalibur (I have plenty of LP points so I’m not too concerned with wasting them on a hotel night I won’t use). I’ll have the reservation confirmation number from this and will use to claim any reward (specifically looking at MC $50 and NYNY Dueling Piano $50 if I can actually get them) that needs a one night minimum room stat at an MGM property. I wouldn't plan on checking-in for the hotel stay so I wouldn't have to pay the resort fee. Do you see any issues with this working? As a side question, do the rewards have to be claimed at the Mlife desk of the property the reward is for, or can you claim it from any Mlife desk?
