    Wondering what would be to our advantage as MLIFE members.
    As a married couple, we have been using just one MLIFE account for both of our casino gaming.

    For many years we have climbed up to Platinum which has been based on both of our
    gaming on the one account. My wife plays slots, and I play video poker.

    Would we benefit from having our own separate accounts, or should we continue with the one?
    Not that I don't trust what the people at the players desk suggest, but if we can achieve more
    comps I'll change.

    Thanks.

    I can't speak to MLIFE, but as far as BConnected we play almost exclusively at The Orleans. My wife plays on my card for slots and she uses her own for table games. When the host on duty crunches the numbers at the end of the trip, our play is combined. Now, the benefit for us is with the marketing offers. I typically get 3 free nights and a little food and my wife gets 2 free nights SUN-THURS. I do not think that if her table play was on my card that we would get 5 free nights+.

    So I guess that is a definitely maybe..

    Well as mlife member, my wife and I we each have our own account- one thing keep it mind; we have local MGM Grand casino which we are regulars there and we are able to get express comps based on table games. So I'm a platinum and wife is gold we are accumulating EC up to $5,000 each; mine usually goes over so we didn't combine it she is not much of table player so she has plenty of "space" left to accumulate EC. that's biggest reason we didn't combine ours. We do have VIP; platinum & noir lounge and since my wife uses my card to get in we just don't any really reason to combine it.

    It depends on how much you each play and how long your trips are.

    The tier level benefits at Mlife aren't worth much to me.

    It's possible that by playing on two separate UNLINKED accounts, either at each of your own normal levels, or by essentially evenly splitting the amount of play by switching back and forth from one account to the other, you would both get separate offers, which you could use back-to-back to stay longer and get more freeplay and resort credit.

    A few things:
    • It's possible your separate play wouldn't be enough to generate offers that are equal to the ones you get now (ie you might only get discounts or have some blackout dates).
    • I think I read somewhere here that a husband-wife team playing on separate LINKED accounts ran afoul of MLife when they tried to book back-to-back offers under their separate accounts. I can't remember the details well enough to really say with certainty that it's a problem.
    • If you don't need longer stays, then there's probably no reason to set up separate accounts, except:
      • If either of you ever travel solo, and you have separate LINKED accounts, you can both access the combined Express Comps and Point Play even if all of the play is done on one card.

    If you both play on one card, you are going to be better off. Comp offers are tied to each account. If you each play a lower amount (since it is split), then your comp offers will drop. And you card level might suffer - not sure how well into Plat you are.

    Right now you look like one larger player. If you split up, you look like two smaller players. Of course, this all depends on how much you each play.

    There is only one advantage to separate accounts - if one of you travels without the other sometimes and wants to get their own offers, perks, etc.
