MGM-Hyatt Status Match

MGM-Hyatt Status Match Could End Later this Year

Before we get into the article, I should mention that this is just a rumor for now. But two people have already heard this information from MGM representatives.

The rumor is that starting in June it will no longer be possible to match status from World of Hyatt to MGM Rewards. This was first shared on FlyerTalk and it comes from a reservations manager.

In addition to the status matching ending, that manager also shared that MGM Rewards status that was from previous matching would be removed on July 1, 2023, unless a member meets MGM requirements.

The manager said that this MGM-Hyatt relationship was never intended to be an annual rematch or status match, but it just went in that direction and it stayed that way. Supposedly the decision to put an end to status matching has already been made. You can read the exact information that was shared here.

Another FT member shared that that he was told something similar a few days earlier, with the only difference being that a decision would be made in June, and nothing is definite yet.

It’s not clear what other changes might happen as far as the MGM and Hyatt partnership goes. We also don’t know for sure that the information that was shared is true.

  1. @ MB It came from a long tenured call center manager not a random call center agent
    Otherwise I agree its not even worth considering at all IMO
    And yes it may likely be all fiction in the end with no factual basis but we shall see what the MGM end game is in the months ahead and if any of us are out or in
    I have been near 10 years giving MGM my own business only as a result of the opportunity to match.

  2. What one REPRESENATIVE told one person ( maybe 2) sure is getting a lot of play…………imagine if we ran with everything a CSR told people on calls.

    If it ends this year it ends but I have some SERIOUS doubts they pull status mid year possibly denying people who would would have Gold status ( WHEN THEY BOOKED) that expires 1/31/2024 and then they show up say July 4 and find out they are no longer gold and owe resort fees.

    Much easier to end it now ( no 2023 match) or just let it ride until 1/31/2024.

  3. I will stay at MGM either way but loving the no resort fees with Gold. I think it will be too much to hit Gold without it!

    • Yeah that was a very positive change of the new MGM Rewards. Earning points on actual gambling is much harder now though which makes it difficult to get status without a lot of play. This will hurt for sure.

  4. That def is not good news. I specifically stay at MGM properties because of that status match which waives the nightly resort credit there. Hopefully they decide against it and leave it as it is.

    • Yeah I am hoping the contract is just coming up for renewal and they are negotiating. Their original deal was 1 year and then they extended it. It’s been 4 or 5 years since then so it would make sense that they need to reup if they want to. There is also the factor that Hyatt is building the Dream Hotel and has announced several Hyatt brands for Rio. Maybe they are heading into an era of being too competitive with MGM. Pure speculation of course.
