Even though Vegas isn’t the “family friendly” city it was advertized to be in the 1990’s, I’m still a huge fan.  I like adults-only trips to Vegas, plus there are still a good number of things for kids to do there.  In case you also like Vegas, I wanted to share info about a new partnership between the MGM Resorts loyalty program, M Life, and Southwest Rapid Rewards.

Members of both programs can now earn 600 Rapid Rewards Points for qualifying stays at MGM Resort Las Vegas properties including: Bellagio, ARIA, Vdara, MGM Grand, The Signature at MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York – New York, Luxor, and Excalibur.

As a special offering to kick off the alliance, members will receive double (1,200) Rapid Rewards Points for all valid reservations booked between May 31 and June 30, 2013, for future visits to MGM Resorts’ participating Las Vegas properties.

Must be 21 years of age or older and a member of both rewards programs to earn benefits. For further details, you can visit’s Preferred Partners Page.  Visit or any MGM Resorts’ property to enroll in M life; sign up for Rapid Rewards at

Room reservations made through, MGM Resorts’ property websites or call centers will earn both M life Tier Credits and Rapid Rewards Points simultaneously. Room reservations made through, Southwest Jackpot, and Southwest Vacations will receive Rapid Rewards Points for their hotel stay and can earn M life Tier Credits through their Las Vegas spend at participating MGM Resorts’ restaurants, spas, shows and more. To earn Rapid Rewards Points, a member must present both their Southwest and M life loyalty cards upon check-in or check-out at one of the participating MGM Resorts’ properties:  All new and existing reservations with stays beginning May 31, 2013 or after are eligible for Rapid Rewards Points.

The regular bonus of 600 Rapid Reward points is worth about $10 toward Wanna Get Away fares, so this isn’t exactly huge news, but it is still pretty cool.  M Life is absolutely worth joining the next time you are in Vegas as you can earn Express Comps toward discounts on your stay, plus at the very least you should get some discounted room rate offers for future stays.

  1. Does southwest even give out loyalty cards? I’m sure I don’t have one, but that could have been my fault.

  2. Just signed up for RR this year and we all got cards in the mail. Even the 4 year old. Not exactly sure where I put them, but that’s ok, I’m not going to Vegas any time soon (neither is the 4 year old).
