Mlife Shopping Discount: Save Money in Vegas Shops!

Written by on April 26, 2017 in Travel Deals, Travel Tips

A late night visit for soda, snacks, and a contact lens case taught me about a great perk at MGM Resorts properties: the Mlife shopping discount – which is free to all Mlife Rewards members!

When the clerk working MGM Grand‘s Front Page shop took my card, he said, “…and you get the Mlife member discount.”

Wait, what? Mlife points and a discount? Yes!

An Mlife gold card, good for a 10% shopping discount at select MGM Resorts gift shops and other stores.

Mlife (M Life) Rewards

Mlife Rewards (interchangeably called “M Life”) is MGM Resorts’ loyalty program/players club. Membership is free to anyone 21+ years old.

Mlife has five tiers; you’re immediately considered a “Sapphire” (entry level) member upon registration. (Sign up here for Mlife.) There are two ways to advance membership levels:

  1. Gamble and spend a lot of money at MGM Resorts properties or,
  2. Earn complimentary Pearl (the second tier) status through holding a credit card such as the M life Rewards MasterCard or the Hyatt Credit Card (which grants cardholders World of Hyatt’s “Discoverist” status that matches M life Pearl status)

Mlife Shopping Discount

All Mlife members receive shopping discounts at “participating retail shops” (per M Life’s website). Most of these stores are unique to MGM Resorts: their gift shops, logo stores (shops selling hotel-branded merchandise), and most attraction/show shops (Cirque du Soleil, Criss Angel, etc).

In other words, your Mlife card won’t snag you a discount on a $3000 handbag at the Prada store in Bellagio. But it will knock some money off souvenirs, snack-type food and beverages, magazines, and other items you find at most gift shops. (We have a list below of participating retailers. You can also check out this pamphlet from MGM Resort property ARIA.)

How Much of a Discount Do Mlife Members Receive?

Discount levels vary according to your status level:

  • Sapphire: 5%
  • Pearl: 10%
  • Gold: 10%
  • Platinum: 15%
  • Noir: 15%

Remember that you must present your card in person to receive the discount!

Quick Analysis

You and I probably both agree any discount is nice — especially in Vegas. Signing up for the free Mlife program automatically entitles you to the 5% Mlife shopping discount. Why not register for the program and start saving?

Water can cost $6 a bottle at sundry shops (Vegas is in the desert after all — water is a premium ;-)). Souvenir t-shirts might carry price tags ranging from $12 to $40, depending on which attraction you visit. That 5% savings can add up.  Plus, getting the no-annual-fee Mlife credit card boosts you to Pearl status — and kicks your Mlife shopping discount up to 10%.
