    So, I figured what's one more credit card. You know, 23 or 24...but who's counting. This credit card is solely for free parking at MGM resorts on the Strip. I don't gamble at MGM properties but I do like walking around them...maybe I do lay down a bet or two.
    I believe the credit card moves my status up to Noir and that gives me free parking? When entering MGM properties do I swipe the credit card? Will my old blue and white card register as noir for free parking? Or, do I have to park at CZR property (I have diamond status) and walk across the street on my first day there and get a new Noir Card for future free parking at the properties?
    What other benefits will Noir status afford me?

    You swipe your slot card. Even if you don't have your updated Pearl card yet, the blue card should work (it reads the account number on your card, not the actual color, to pull up your status.)

    You will not have to pay for self parking if you are pearl status. Valet will still be charged.

    Pearl gets line cut at some buffets. That's the only one benefit I used, I never used free parking.

    Along these lines; can Tiers (from pearl to gold) be gained by using the card for everyday expenses - using it as a CC - or only gained via gambling ?

    Yes you get 1x points and tier credits for $ spent everywhere. 2x on gas stations and super markets and 3x spent at mlife resorts. Tier credits are what advance your card level.

    Thanks for starting the thread because my wife got me this card.

    Question I am still unsure of: Let's say I spend $1,000 at Mlife in rooms. That is 25,000k pts (25 pts per dollar spent). Do I get an additional 3,000k points for the 3 pts per dollar spent on top of the 25k earned or do I only get one or the other?

    @h0llywood it would appear that is the case.

    Everyone remember card status only gets you line jumping privileges and now free parking. Your time at tables or slots and your average bet are what get you free rooms. If you are advancing levels strictly on spend, you are not going to increase your offers.
