If you are a follower of the Status Match Merry Go Round, you’ve hopefully been able to make the Mlife match component work. Currently, you’ve only been able to match your Caesars Diamond to Mlife Gold at Borgata in Atlantic City and at MGM Springfield in Massachusetts, but for a long while you were also able to do it at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas – meaning that many of you have been able to do this over the last year +.

Time to Re-Match Hyatt to MLife?

If you have, your Mlife membership, which expires on September 30th may have lapsed. You can check that easily enough on the Mlife website or the MGM app. If you have dropped to Sapphire (base) status, there is no need to make another run to Atlantic City! (Note that if you matched this year, you should be good through September 2020 already, meaning you don’t need to re-match. Only those that did the match way back when I first posted about the strategy over a year ago should be due.

Just head into your Hyatt account at this URL:

Then click the button that says Opt-In. 

Within minutes (to maybe 24 hours max) you should see your Mlife status back at Gold and giving you great benefits like check-in and buffet line skips, free parking and valet parking, access to the famous Amphora Lounge at Borgata ($12.50 in comps per person) and much more with Mlife, as well as other status match opportunities as outlined in the Status Match Merry Go Round master post.

Here was the “regular” check-in line at Borgata this weekend, while the Gold line was about 6 people:

Here are photos from the Amphora Lounge, only available to MLife Gold and Higher Members:

As you can see, the Amphora Lounge is quite special – a full open bar and a fairly extensive lounge buffet. One of t he best casino lounges out there.

Happy Matching!
