    Hi with MyVEGAS are you only allowed to get 3 rewards every 3 months?

    If you have purchased chips you can have as many as 6 Mlife rewards in 30 days. I purchased about $50 in chips a few years ago and I have 4 rewards.

    MGM Resorts rewards are limit 3 every 30 days. If you have a doubt in which rewards are under the MGM banner, pull up the reward and click next. You will see under the Purchase & Usage Limitations this info.

    No. "Usage" occurs when you redeem the reward in Vegas. So you're at your limit already.

    Here is what I know....

    Three rewards in 30 days...no stacking and racking.

    If you purchase coins, the number of rewards increases. It is rather unclear as to how much $ = the number of rewards. The bottom line is for those that do buy coins, you maybe entitled to a max of 6 rewards per 30 day period.

    Just for a twist in your Dr. Pepper......some of us accumulate enough coins to buy Tailor made rewards. This varies according the type of "reward" folks want. For us we have received a Food and Beverage credit at the MLife properties. On our last trip we had a $950.00 FB credit at NYNY. Some have also received concert tickets, Cirque tickets and dinner at high end restaurants. And yes there are MyVEGAS hosts who assist folks on how to receive tailor made rewards.

    Naysayers will say something contrary about paying for coins when the original intent of MyVEGAS was to play for free. But like most things associated with LV, things change.

    That is all I can tell you...hope that helps.

    YSM

    We are going for longer than 30 days. My partner and I each have 4 rewards and my dad has 3.
    Does the 30 days begin when we use the first reward of 3/4, or the last reward?
    I can't find anything when I search, but then I don't suppose many people visit for as long as we do.

    I know this is a poorly worded question, but I'm lost and don't know how else to ask.

    It's a "rolling" 30 days, so 30 days after you use the first reward.

    Example with someone having 4 rewards:
    Reward 1 - Used March 1
    Reward 2 - Used March 3
    Reward 3 - Used March 5
    Reward 4 - Used March 7

    The next day you should be able to use a MGM Resort reward is March 31... then THAT would be your 4th reward in 30 days.
    You should be able to use ANOTHER reward on April 2... then THAT would be your 4th reward in 30 days.
    You should be able to use ANOTHER reward on April 4... then THAT would be your 4th reward in 30 days.
    And finally, you should be able to use ANOTHER reward on April 6... then THAT would be your 4th reward in 30 days.

    And what people don't seem to realize (or acknowledge is that Playstudios (the makers of myVegas) is a business. They have the typical business expenses (like employees) that need to be paid, and that's why they sell chips.

    I've booked a MyVegas comp room for 30+ days out (5/24). It shows as redeemed in the game. When I get out there in May will I be able to redeem 2 or 3 more rewards?

    However, make sure that you book your rewards BEFORE you leave, since myVegas looks at your IP address and if you're using a Local (Clark County) IP address, it limits what you see.

    That was my gut feeling. I'm kind of surprised their system is smart enough to consider the stay the redemption date, and not the booking date. It seems like everything would just be tied to the rolling 30-day period.

    Oh well.

    ****ack, just saw DaiLun already mentioned this before I posted the below!****

    HI pbear, another warning is to LOAD UP before you hit vegas. You can always refund rewards, but once you hit Vegas, it gives you access to LOCALS deals, which are bare bones, free coffee, etc. I always load up so I can pick and choose which to redeem, and I just refund the others. (You can refund up to 5 a month, and you get a few months on each reward, so you can conceivably refund 10-15.)

    We always redeem more than we will use. Gives us variety and we can always cancel later. With the rom rewards, it's a no go. They are redeemed when you stay even though they look redeemed already.

    We usually stay for 6 weeks. Should be able to take advantage of 2x room rewards, but they don't leave your account until after you have stayed. Since we are already in vegas by then, we can't use another room reward.

    Maybe could have done it this trip due to a Reno trip last week, but we have my dad with us this trip, so are staying in a condo so we have more space. A myVEGAS reward room wouldn't work. Maybe next time eh?
