While Marriott Bonvoy® members will not receive matched status in the MGM Rewards program (like what used to be granted to World of Hyatt members), those who hold status with MGM Rewards will be granted Marriott Bonvoy® status. Matching is now live.

This match includes:

  • MGM Rewards Gold members will be matched to Silver Elite
  • MGM Rewards Platinum members will be matched to Gold Elite
  • MGM Rewards Noir members be matched to Ambassador Elite

Ambassador Elite is very generous, but Noir is MGM Rewards’ highest tier that requires a ton of spend in casinos and MGM properties. I held this status for years thanks to an insanely generous match with Hyatt and loved that I could get restaurant reservations and cut the taxi line. Matches are valid through December 2024. We’ll see if this extended.

How to Match MGM Rewards Status With Marriott Bonvoy®

  • Sign into MGM Rewards
  • Go to “My Rewards”
  • Select “Link a Marriott Bonvoy® Account”
  • A pop-up window will appear. Click “Link a Marriott Bonvoy® Account”
  • Enter your Marriott Bonvoy® log-in info.  A message will appear. It reads: “your Marriott Bonvoy® account has been linked”

Anthony’s Take: This partnership is nowhere near as lucrative as the deal between MGM Rewards and World of Hyatt. Only Noir members will see status with real value. I like the idea that I can credit nights to Marriott Bonvoy®, but it would be great to go back to receiving Platinum or even Gold status with MGM Rewards.
