Did the stay itself already post?

Also, note that I got this promo for Q4 2018 and the promotional points did not show up in the line item breakdown. It was just added directly to the stay total.

Going to Vegas for my birthday, and had a few questions. 1. Would virtuoso bookings earn the double points? (They are treated as direct bookings for Hyatt properties) 2. As a globalist, I status matched to MLife Gold, but if I add my MLife number, won't the points credit to MLife instead of WOH? Anyway to double dip the benefits of MLife Gold but earn WOH points? Thanks

Double-dipping is automatic - you'll earn both Mlife TCs and WoH credits/points. (Note that Mlife only earns tier credits for spend, which is probably why it works this way.)

According to the T&C's it doesn't look like you would be able to use Virtuoso. At least that's how I interpreted it.

"An M life Rewards-Eligible Stay is defined as (i) any stay where payment is made directly to a participating MGM Resorts destination in Las Vegas, (ii) any stay at a participating MGM Resorts destination in Las Vegas booked through hyatt.com or (iii) any stay booked at a participating MGM Resorts destination in Las Vegas through a Hyatt Global Contact Center."

As gengar said, it's a reciprocated partnership so you would earn points for both programs. To note and add on, spend at MLIFE properties will earn you tier credits and also MLIFE points. MLIFE points can be converted to Express Comps which you can use to purchase stuff.

That assessment is a bit extreme. I had a stay at an MGM property last week in Las Vegas, which posted points in my Hyatt account about 5-6 days after my stay... double points and 1K/night bonus included. The bonus points were not itemized separately, as others have mentioned. If there is an issue with Hyatt points posting, it is best to contact the MGM property about a couple of weeks after the stay, so they can research and help resolve any missing points.

Yes the stay points did post a few days after the stay. I guess the double points may be included in that total, as there is no break down as you say.
