Yes, the Royal Caribbean cruise was for two people and all the total cost for two people, Taxes/port charges/gratuities was only $450 for the week.

I redeemed an award for a Zumanity ticket.. booked it for a Sunday night show, but now I have a conflict. Does mLife do changes over the phone? It sounds like a full refund of points is not a possibility. Not sure if it's worth pursuing or just call it a loss.

Give them a call. What have you got to lose? I'm thinking they probably won't change the date for you, but if it's a slow night and the customer service person is in a good mood, you might luck out. This is Vegas after all

Glad that it was easy to book the tickets online instead of calling a rep.

Trying to find a reasonable redemption offer with the remaining points (~17k at the moment) but right now it looks like the BOGO candy at Hexx is going to be it.
Not planning on staying at MGM properties, considering the resort fees.. but will definitely use the taxi line jumping perk for mLife elites.

If only mLife elites had some kind of benefit with Cirque shows (maybe free upgrades to a better seat?). Oh well!
How are you getting the Cirque tickets, when all the vouchers have an explicit comment that a stay at an MLife resort is required for redemption?

There is no mention of an MGM stay requirement on either the reward terms in the game or on my reward purchase confirmation for an upcoming Love show. Perhaps there was in the past, but now that you can book online and print your tickets from home, there doesn't seem to be any way to enforce such a requirement.

The rewards fine print for Slot Freeplay Rewards require a stay at the respective property where you want to redeem the Freeplay, but it seems that other rewards do not.

That's also true of some of the buffet rewards (which require a stay at any MGM property), but there doesn't appear to be any such requirement for Cirque tickets. But I almost always stay at MGM properties, so it isn't an issue for me.

There's no stay requirement for Cirque tickets. You redeem, then book your ticket online.. then they email you a PDF of the ticket to bring. If there was a stay requirement, you'd have to go to the mLife desk where they verify your hotel, etc.

I booked a free night at Aria on a Thursday. I called my VIP host to book the Fri/Sat at reduced rate of $85 and a comped Sunday.

I have confirmation numbers for both bookings currently in my MLife accounts.

Does anyone think I'll run into any problems at the Thursday check-in? I've read that offers can't be combined etc but am wondering if those sort of restrictions block you at the booking stage only? Now that I'm confirmed, I'm hoping I'm safe. Can anyone share their thoughts?

A couple months ago I redeemed myvegas for 2 nights at Vdara--very nice!! And also a free Aria dinner buffet.

Going tomorrow and using myvegas for free night at Aria, BOGO dinner buffet at Bellagio, free Asinthe drink at Sage, Jean Philippe Patisserie. Decent haul although I have had better.

Has anyone noticed that comp nights are missing? I still see discount nights but no comps nights. I redeemed some points for comp nights back in may and had still seen them in the redemption portal until a few weeks ago. Any chance they took them out of my profile because of limitations on how many comp nights you can redeem?

Still not anything to sneeze at. More than decent, in my book. I've gambled a ton more than the $56 I've spent over the years playing myVegas at Aria and never got a free room. Bellagio and Mandalay, no Aria. This upcoming trip I'm cashing in LPs for one, plus KA, the Aria dinner buffet, and the Secret Garden for 2. On the SO's account we got of course KA and the buffet, plus the NYNY $50 drink credit. We're still looking at non-MGM rewards to cash in.

Nope, not as fruitful as a few years ago, but it definitely fills in the comp basket.
