10. Gold and Platinum Status Matches pursuant to this Challenge are subject to the MGM Rewards Rules (click here) except as follows:

A. Status Match will only be valid for a member’s Challenge Period (not for the entire 2024 Tier Status Benefit Year (which is February 1, 2024 – January 31, 2025)):

For Gold Tier Status Matches requested between February 15 and June 30, 2024, a member must earn or accumulate 50,000 Tier Credits on eligible spend for this offer within the member’s 90-day Challenge, valid from his/her Tier Status Match approval date (or either earn or accumulate 75,000 Tier Credits during the Tier Status Earning Year or be given an elevated Tier Status through a separate promotional offer) in order to extend matched Tier Status through January 31, 2026.

For Platinum Tier Status Matches requested between February 15 and June 30, 2024, a member must earn or accumulate 150,000 Tier Credits on eligible spend for this offer within the member’s 90-day Challenge, valid from his/her Tier Status Match approval date (or either earn or accumulate 200,000 Tier Credits during the Tier Status Earning Year or be given an elevated Tier Status through a separate promotional offer) in order to extend matched Tier Status through January 31, 2026.

B. If requirements are not earned within the member’s Challenge Period, member will be reverted to their pre-Status Match Tier Status and expiration date, unless member earns the required Tier Credits to advance tiers during the Challenge Period. In that case, member will be evaluated based on Tier Credits earned in the current Tier Status Earning Year. 

C. For linked accounts, Challenge earning requirement must be achieved by the individual member who requested and received approval for Tier Status Match, in order to extend the matched Tier Status of such member through January 31, 2026.  Individual balances of both members of such linked accounts will not be combined to determine whether the Challenge was successfully completed by the member requesting the Tier Status Match pursuant to this offer.

11. The MGM Rewards Program’s Tier Achievement Air Travel Credit benefit, Tier Achievement Celebration Dining Credit benefit, and annual complimentary cruise benefit require individuals to earn the minimum Tier Credits associated with the corresponding Gold & Platinum Tier Status during the current Tier Status Earning Year (i.e., January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023). Therefore, individuals who receive a Gold Tier Status Match through this Challenge (and as described above) do not qualify for the Dining Credit benefit simply by receiving a Status Match or by successfully completing a Tier Status Match Challenge; Individuals who receive a Platinum Tier Status Match through this Challenge (and as described above) do not qualify for the Dining Credit, Air Travel Credit or complimentary cruise benefits simply by receiving a Tier Status Match or by successfully completing a Tier Status Match Challenge. Rather, an individual must earn the minimum Tier Credits in accordance with the MGM Rewards Program Rules.

12. MGM Resorts reserves the right to modify (e.g., change competitor loyalty card(s) that are eligible for matching, change MGM Rewards Program Tier Status that a competitor’s card/status will be matched to, change Challenge Tier Credit requirements, change Challenge Period, etc.) or cancel this offer at any time at its sole discretion. MGM Resorts also reserves the right to exclude a person from participating in this Challenge if MGM Resorts reasonably believes that such person is engaging in unfair, fraudulent, deceptive, and/or misleading actions, omissions, behavior and/or conduct, or otherwise does not comply with these Challenge Rules or the MGM Rewards Rules.
