Why You Should Match Your Hyatt Status to M life Now

Hyatt and M life have a pretty neat reciprocal elite status program that can be used to create elite status in one of those programs if you have it in the other. For example, on March 1st of this year my husband lost his Hyatt elite status as he didn’t have very much paid travel in 2016, but as soon as that happened, he matched his M life status to Hyatt and became a second tier level Hyatt Explorist with four…

New and Increased Parking Charges in Las Vegas

Last year a huge wave of change hit Las Vegas when M life casinos started doing the unthinkable and began charging for parking. Up until that time not only was self-parking free, but even valet parking was free other than gratuity. The casinos just wanted you in the building as you were very likely to be a money maker for them once you entered the facility. However, since gambling rates aren’t quite what they used to be, the casinos now want…

Hotel elite status can make your hotel stays more comfortable, and can even save you real money if you score free breakfasts, lounge access, or even some waived resort or parking fees as a result of your status.

Why You Should Link Hyatt Status to M life Now!

One cool perk of having some level of Hyatt Gold Passport status is that you can match it to M life status for some perks and savings in Las Vegas and casinos such as MGM, Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, Aria, Luxor, Mirage, and beyond. This relationship has been in place for a few years now, but it is about to undergo a pretty big change when the new World of Hyatt program takes over in a little over a week. The Hyatt…

As you may already know, for the last few years you have been able to take advantage of the relationship that Hyatt Gold Passport and M life have to match elite status levels and earn Gold Passport points while staying at M life properties in Las Vegas.

How to Get Free Parking at Mlife Properties in Las Vegas

Las Vegas used to be the land of cheap rooms, cheap food, and free parking. Their money was made primarily on gambling and the rest was basically just to get and keep you there as long as possible so you would gamble (and usually lose) more. Well, times change places, even Las Vegas, and while there are still cheap food and rooms to be had, they may or may not be at the places or times you want to visit.…

A Vegas “Vacation”, Part 1

What a trip. No really, what. a. trip. Any two night trip to Vegas is probably insane and exhausting. Any two night work trip is often busy and tiring. Any two night trip with two children is probably going to wipe you out. Any two nights spent taking turns holding a baby who wouldn’t sleep in the crib for one minute is going to bring you to your knees begging for sleep. Put those all together and that was our…

Check This Site for Vegas Hotel Discounts

There are tons of ways and websites to book hotel rooms in Vegas, but there is one I haven’t mentioned specifically in a while that you absolutely have to check if you want to be sure you are getting the best rate for your hotel. While I love booking the “nicer” Vegas hotels such as Wynn, Bellagio, Aria, and more using the American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts website as that gives you breakfast for two, early check-in, late check-out,…

A Look at the VIP Lounge at Mandalay Bay

This weekend I am at a blogging conference at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and thanks to attending a Hyatt/Mlife event last summer I have Noir Mlife status which is normally reserved for folks who gamble more in a day than I make in years.  I’m pretty sure my status expires at the end of the month, but I will still have decent Mlife status after that thanks to matching my Hyatt elite status to Mlife, which you should absolutely…
