A Collaboration That Unlocks New Destinations

The cornerstone of this partnership is the creation of the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy. This exclusive group incorporates select MGM Resorts properties into the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio. Marriott Bonvoy members can now book stays at these MGM Collection destinations through familiar channels like Marriott.com and the Marriott Bonvoy app. They can earn and redeem their Marriott Bonvoy points while enjoying their stay. Elite members of Marriott Bonvoy can also expect additional benefits at these MGM Collection properties.


MGM Rewards Members Get a Status Boost (For a Limited Time)

Great news for MGM Rewards members! As part of the partnership, MGM Rewards Gold and NOIR members have the opportunity to receive a status match in the Marriott Bonvoy program. By linking their accounts, MGM Rewards Gold members can unlock Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite status, while NOIR members can enjoy the perks of Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador Elite status. This exclusive offer is valid until December 31, 2024, so be sure to take advantage of it!


More Ways to Earn and Redeem

The Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards partnership goes beyond unlocking new destinations and status benefits. It opens doors to a world of expanded earning and redemption opportunities for members of both programs.


Earning Marriott Bonvoy Points at MGM Collection Properties:

Here's the good news for MGM Rewards members: You can now earn Marriott Bonvoy points when you stay at any MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy Hotel. This means you can continue accumulating points in your preferred program while exploring exciting new locations within the MGM Resorts portfolio.


Transferring Points Between Programs:

For those who want even more flexibility, the partnership allows you to transfer points between Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards. This can be particularly useful if you have a specific redemption goal in mind for either program. Keep in mind that there's a minimum transfer threshold of 30,000 points, so be sure to plan your transfers strategically to maximize their value.


Remember: It's always wise to check the specific transfer ratio between programs before initiating a transfer, as this can help you determine the best course of action for your points.


Important Considerations to Keep in Mind

While the partnership offers significant advantages, it's important to note a few things. Currently, there's no status match option for Marriott Bonvoy members looking to elevate their MGM Rewards tier. Additionally, if you plan to transfer points between programs, be aware of the minimum transfer requirement.

A Win-Win for Loyalty Program Members

The Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards partnership offers a compelling proposition for members of both programs. With the introduction of the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy, travelers gain access to a wider range of hotels while still enjoying the benefits of their preferred loyalty program. MGM Rewards members, particularly those with Gold or NOIR status, can leverage the partnership to elevate their Marriott Bonvoy experience for a limited time. Stay tuned, as the collaboration between BetMGM and Marriott Bonvoy promises even more exciting opportunities to earn and redeem points in the future.
