    Wait wait wait those aren’t listed on their own rewards site. Are those all considered part of the platinum check in? What are the valid benefits of MLife gold besides line skipping and a 20 percent reward credit bonus?

    To further enumerate, I would much prefer to be loyal to one program than to two. Caesars just gives out way better free rooms and spells out the benefits for loyalty. MGM does not but (sorry Caesars) they have nicer properties and hell, even the casinos themselves are nicer. More fun. More bright. Open. More unique slots. You name it...

    Unfortunately the Mlife rewards site sucks. You can use the perks anytime you want even if you aren't a guest of the hotel. My wife and I usually pop into VIP at NYNY just to grab a coffee, water, cookies. Just show the card. Only one you need to be checked into the hotel for is the free tickets to Shark Reef, Secret Garden, Bellagio Fine Art Gallery. You can have your pick of tickets no matter where you stay. Oh another benefit is you are supposed to get expedited valet and even if the valet is full they have to take your car.

    Mlife Gold is basically the Jan Brady of tiers. Yeah you get to use Invited Guest and get free parking but that's it. Monte Carlo used to let Gold use their VIP Lounge but that is long gone.

    If you are going to ever consider switching, I'd wait until maybe December. Last year they did a triple tier credit promo. Covered room, food, and gambling. No limits on the number of tier credits. Not sure if they will do it again this year but even if they don't the tier year extended out until Dec. 31 now and the requirements to advance are lower.

    Frankly, for me, the perks of Diamond outweigh those of Platinum because my preferred hotel is Wynn. MGM just cut too much from Bellagio, Aria, Skylofts.
    This way I can stay where I love, and I can use the Laurel Lounge for snacks and booze, and if I do choose to stay more local or in another state, I have more options.

    Everyone is different, you have to find what works best for you.

    BTW if you want a cool, cheap room look at Cromwell. Casino is beautiful, club is awesome and while the rooms are darker, they have a sexy intimate vibe to them. Cromwell guests can also use the pool at Caesars Palace. Diamond guests can use the pool at any hotel but Caesars I think.

    I started receiving my reward credit bonuses from Vegas, this afternoon. So far I’ve received 2 increments, still not the full amount due from all of my June play, though.

    Ok now I am just pressing my luck and taking advantage of your experience and kindness, but I really probably do need to pick a program after December. In 2020 I went over NYE then 4th of July, so by EARNING (and using Caesars 5x this June), not by credit card or status matching, I am currently Gold at MLife and Diamond (200 points shy of Plus) at Caesars, and usually stay at Caesars half of a trip/week (Palace Studio or Augustus/Octavius strip view please!) (or Planet Hollywood which is more modern though not as clean) and then I think my next trip will either be Aria (I'm young), Bellagio (it's gorgeous!) or Delano, which would probably be my favorite were it not so South. But yes, I LOVE Cromwell. All I wanted to do over the 4th was relive a night from NYE trip where we learned new games from these washed up Jersey gal dealers, nearly watched a straight man attempt being gay at 3 am who eventually fell asleep AT the table, etc. A riot. None of which is currently COVID possible. My work years ago hosted a party at Drais too, so I am familiar with that gorgeous venue. Ok, haven't asked a question yet.

    So Gold is worthless at the moment, as parking is free for all, and they have mobile check in. I guess it's useful to do the 20 dollar trick for better room upgrades, and that's about it, and oh, being matched to Hyatt Explorist or whatever it is called never hurt anyone... Is there literally anything else worth it to it? Anything with free or upgraded show tickets in the future? Especially since offers/comps are mysteries and more about gambling/coin in regardless of tier as far as anyone can tell...? Anyways, I'll be gold and diamond for another 18 months anyhow with these Corona extensions, but there's always 2021 to chase.... Did everyone get that 3x tier / reward credit promo last December or only some? Maybe they'll send me that to get me to chase Platinum? Is Platinum considered Diamond Elite essentially at Caesars?

    And how does Diamond benefit your preferred hotel of Wynn? Are you telling me any day I am in Vegas (or Atlantic City, wherever) I can go to a Laurel Lounge when they are open and use the benefits? Do they not swipe your card and then you're essentially looked at as a day of play towards your daily average? If not, shoot, poor people who live in Vegas should all become Diamond Plus and then eat and drink nearly free for the year... Good to know about the Diamond pools, the only Caesars pool I have ever been to is Caesars actually... I tend to visit outside of the summer months it seems.

    Thanks again and no pressure to say ah hell, too long, and ignore the whole thing - any/all answers appreciated.

    You're right Heiress, I just looked and mine went up 9526, whereas yesterday my tier credits went up either 8176 or 9176, there was a mystery 1093 added a couple days prior - I am guessing maybe resort fees plus Vanderpump dinner. Either way I can't shed light, because I took advantage of this promo by approximately 1000 TCs earned for 2 days, plus a bit on the first day of July, and an unknown amount June 29th around 500ish. Hope someone else can be more certain.

    I got RC’s today once that seemed correct then a second time as well. The second time looks like a mistake though. Like a double dip. We shall see fingers crossed.

    I still see reward credits trickling in, but have not received my full amount.
    The weirdest thing is I got 20k tier credits added, but should have received the max 25k. Anyone else not seeing their full TC bonus? It’s been 3 days now and still haven’t seen my tier score change.

    I think that is the max. Nobody got more than that. I guess 5x means your base points earned count as 1x. Then they just add 4x.

    Exactly. The max you get is 20k plus the 5k you earned. Totaling 25k

    Ok, that makes sense - I thought 25K was the max added. Thanks!

    Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've posted. I hope everyone is safe and healthy!

    I local casino started the 5x promotion in July so I probably won't see mine until next month. I was able to hit 1000 tier credits with the help of some loose slots. I'm usually platinum but I'm going for Diamond for the first time, this promotion makes things a little easier.

    I know this says Vegas, but has anyone received their 5x bonus credits from playing in Tunica? Their promotion ran June 8th - July 8th. I was there July 1st through the 5th. I did receive my daily bonuses within 24 hours of earning.
    Heading to Biloxi Aug 5th - 9th, would like to have diamond plus in hand.

    Do they still always sent out the tier bonus emails? Sometimes I don't receive the email, I hope they aren't shorting me
