    Has anybody (particularly with a PlayStudios host :)) heard about the potential availability of HGS rewards on MyVEGAS in 2021? I have the requisite millions of LPs burning a hole in my virtual pocket and will spend to the needed level to obtain the rewards if the value’s there :cool: Thanks upfront for any insights :thumbsup:

    Nothing yet, but my hosts knows that it is probably the ONLY reason that I utilize Playstudios.

    ADDED: AFAIK, mLife hasn't even announced dates for the HGS yet, so that may have something to do with it.

    Looks like it is definitely happening this year since they are doing 4x HGS points in June.

    When is Holiday Gift Shoppe 2021?

    Stay tuned, event dates will be announced this summer! The shopping events are held over several weekends in November and December.

    Hopefully it's December, as I'm there the whole month and can't miss out then.

    Providing myVegas has the rewards, obviously :D

    Since the HGS itself has been announced, one question I had was: When did myVEGAS make the HGS rewards available in 2019? Was it all done via a host or did the prize have to be redeemed in the app (subject to availability)?

    Based on the email I had with my host, it was sometime in October.

    The rewards were available in app, with limited availability iirc.

    I got mine from the app, rather than via host for this.

    Make that:

    "The awards were available in the app for those who were ELIGIBLE"

    Note that you didn't need to be a certain level, just a certain amount of purchases. What that number was, I don't know.

    So, not reading anything into my host's response, but this is NOT a slam dunk or a drop-dead deal.

    More along the line of "we hope that we get invited to participate".

    Anybody hear developments on this? The window for me to maintain my VIP level ends in six days and it would be helpful to know if I should just maintain VIP Level 5 or bump up to Level 7… thanks again in advance :nworthy:

    I am going to a PlayStudios event in a few weeks and I will keep my ear to the ground.

    Well I probably will just stay in a holding pattern then unless something definitive (indicating myVEGAS/HGS will happen) pops up… paging @DaiLun ;)

    Sorry, nothing new from my host, but they know that HGS points are almost the only thing that keeps me playing/spending, so I expect that I'll hear one way or the other first thing that they know.

    Hi DaiLun, you probably have already answered this question, what kind of spend do you need to do to be able to convert LPS to HGS points?

    Yes, DaiLun and Marky touched on this in the thread above. If MGM allows PlayStudios to offer HGS rewards, it will be available to those who qualify. I'm not sure anyone really knows what the spend level is, but I'm sure its high and is likely related to lifetime spend within the apps. I never needed to go through my MyVegas host to arrange HGS rewards in the past, they were just available to redeem within the app prior to the event. Years ago, I think you had to stay at a specific MGM resort on a non-MyVegas comp stay, but now I think you can just stay at any MGM resort. Who knows if it'll change in the future. I always read the terms. :)

    Ugh I may have screwed up - I booked one of the weekends to stay at Delano, but through AMEX (Fine Hotels & Resorts), not MGM/MLife… I’m not sure if that would work for redeeming any HGS points :oops:

    I doubt it would matter, as you would still have a room reservation at one of their resorts. I know one of the rules in the past was that you couldn't book a MyVegas room comp while redeeming a HGS reward, but you could stay on an MLife room comp.

    After having to clarify what HGS was to my host (not a good start)

    Was told event details aren't finalized but anticipate they will have an update and communication in late Sept/Early Oct.

    Taking that to be somewhat positive.

    Geez I wish they would just say something one way or another… I detest trying to plan things with so much uncertainty :goofy::cry::cuss::cry::goofy: and especially when it comes to spending up to a hosted level without knowing it will be worth it :blink:
