    Im wondering if anyone knows when the expiration dates update on rewards? I’m going to Vegas April 16 for a week but most the rewards I’m interested in expire April18 so won’t have time to redeem the ones I purchase. Any information is appreciated

    CET is 6 months no activity. There are various way to avoid it. Using their credit card, doing Say and Play surveys are a couple that don't need a casino visit.

    I don't know the answer. I'm going in May and have been waiting on one that expires the day I get there to update, but so far no luck.

    The batch refresh dates have historically been very close even on or after the current date. I would expect them to update anywhere from April 10th-April 20th.

    Appreciate the info @WelshBlonde , guess I’ll hold off until right before departing to purchase rewards and hopefully they update by then.

    I think its a good thing, maybe. I was waiting on rewards for my next trip and they changed right in the middle of claiming them.
    After getting two the last one was moved to 30 days out, so I had to wait an extra 2 weeks to get it. I didn't' like the change in the middle of claiming rewards, but it actually made it easier to get. ($50 free drinks @ Times Sq. NYNY)

    Which ones are you looking for? Rooms tend to have limited calendars you need to book within 30 days of purchase.

    It used to be other rewards expired 30 days from purchase, but I bought a couple buffet rewards that were 60 days out.

    Like so many MyVegas things, there is intentional uncertainty built in.

    I attended a panel where the founder of PlayStudios spoke and one thing he admitted to was that uncertainty was designed into the game experience intentionally. It was in part to keep people engaged, but also to prevent people from gaming the system.

    He also said, they often did not know what rewards they would be able to offer because MGM would open up or curtail things depending on how busy they were.

    My question is, when did they start this specific expiration date? You used to be able to redeem and use within 90 days. Going May 11th for a week and wanted to get a few secured.

    They made some changes to dates at the start of this year.
