Vegas MLIFE Credit Card

Does anyone have this card ? It does come with 10K ( $1000 spend) MLife points but I got it mainly for the Pearl status which gives you free parking, a dedicated line at check in which can save an easy 45 minutes . The card has no AF so I'll keep it for those benefits.

Hyatt recently dropped it's MLIFE Gold Match to Pearl.

I was wondering if people are seeing better MLIFE offers for free rooms/more free play food credit as being a MLIFE cardholder. We get some offers for comps nights as it is now but many times Saturday ( while at a discounted rate) is still not comped. The food and gambling credits always are more than the room so I really can't complain.

I normally stay at Westgate as I get comped fully but my wife likes the shows on the south end of the strip and I can't make every trip a sports gambling trip as it's not fair to her

Thanks

The new World of Hyatt program matches Discoverist status to MLife Pearl. Having the Hyatt CC grants you Discoverist status. Spending $50k in a calendar year on the Hyatt CC gets you Explorist status, which matches to MLife Gold.

I realize that, one of the reasons why I got the NAF Mlife CC for Pearl Status

There is a dedicated forum for gambling program:

Gaming Loyalty Programs

But AFAIK - your comp depends highly on your gambling, rather than the cobranded credit card you have.

Bottom line - it is a casino - gambling matters.

Mods, can you move this thread to the gaming forum, thanks

My Westgate comps improved dramatically after I got the WG credit card. Gambling ( sports) pretty much stayed the same.

I was wondering if people were seeing the same with the MLIFE card.

I'm surprised that was the case at Westgate.

mLife doesn't even grant offers to those who achieve status through spend, so can't imagine they would do anything special for those with the mLife CC either.

We don't gamble that much at MLIFe ( and my sports bets don't count) and still get offers for comp rooms, drink, free play

As far as Westgate I bet about $30- 50 K a year on sports at the Superbook but received better offers after I became a CC holder, maybe just a coincidence

What are 10K MLife points worth? $100 in comps (food/hotel/etc)?

1 cent per point, so yes $100 for 10k points.

$100 for spending a grand plus the Pearl status is not bad IMO.

I was in between churns plus it's my first account with First Bankcard so I can build the relationship for other FB cards down the road as I have no plans on cancelling it.

It does not have instant approval. Took a couple weeks for me to get approved and receive my card.

I signed up for this card for one reason. Pearl Status = free self parking.
