MGM Resorts and Southwest Join Forces

southwest airlinesSouthwest Airlines and MGM Resorts International report the launched of a strategic marketing alliance between the companies' loyalty rewards programs, Rapid Rewards and M life. Members of both programs now can accrue Rapid Rewards Points toward free flights for qualifying stays at MGM Resorts' Las Vegas properties while enjoying VIP perks during their Vegas vacations.

As a special offering to kick off the alliance, members will receive double (1,200) Rapid Rewards Points for all valid reservations booked between May 31 and June 30, 2013, for future visits to MGM Resorts' participating Las Vegas properties.

Members must enroll in both programs to earn benefits, which include 600 Rapid Rewards Points when they stay at one of 12 premier MGM Resorts' properties across Las Vegas, including Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage. 

Special offers, such as room upgrades and pre-sale concert and fight tickets, access to exclusive M life Moments, are part of the deal. Unique to the program, members can accrue both M life Tier Credits and Rapid Rewards Points simultaneously.*

"The sky now, quite literally, is the limit for M life members," said Bill Hornbuckle, President & Chief Marketing Officer for MGM Resorts International. "Teaming up with Southwest Airlines provides more experience options and rewards for our members traveling to Las Vegas."

"With Southwest Airlines being the largest carrier at McCarran International Airport, it's clear how much our Rapid Rewards Members enjoy visiting Las Vegas," said Jonathan Clarkson, Director of Rapid Rewards at Southwest Airlines.

Individuals must be 21 years of age or older and a member of both rewards programs to earn benefits. For further details, visit mlife.com's Preferred Partners Page. Visit mlife.com or any MGM Resorts' property to enroll in M life; sign up for Rapid Rewards at www.southwest.com.
