    Has anyone used a buffet reward (requiring a one night stay) BEFORE actually checking-in? Like a breakfast or lunch buffet on check-in day before you have actually checked in. I'm assuming that'll be a no-go since you're not officially a registered guest yet, but just wondering if anyone's tried it and had any success (perhaps they can check the reservation)?

    They don't allow it since someone could have a reservation for another day then cancel it after redeeming rewards.

    Thanks SH0CK. Makes sense.

    Do you happen to know if you still have 24 hours to use the buffet once it's redeemed and placed on your players card? Could I, for example - check-in, get buffet loaded, not use it yet, check-out the following day and then use it (so long as it hasn't been 24 hours since it was loaded on)?

    I showed my confirmation print out to check in later that day at MGM Grand and was able to get the players club rep to put the reward on my card. That was in January or February of this year. I suppose things could have changed by now or maybe that person was just being generous, so I wouldn't COUNT on it, but I would still try.

    Thanks for the info Mare! I'll definitely try and see what happens. Can't hurt.

    At MGM, I was actually told I had 7 days to use reward when I redeemed it at MLife desk. Aria and Mirage made no such comment, just asked when I planned to use.

    The guy at mgm told us they give 7 days, but not all MLife properties do. Depends on the property.
