ResSocial media and networking is becoming the norm – a way of life! Gamblers can take advantage.

MGM Resorts International’s premier loyalty program, M life (www.mlife.com) has two new relationships to help personalize the way it rewards members for the use of mobile technology and social networking. M life is working with Visa Inc., and Topguest, a product of Switchfly, Inc., that enables loyalty programs to reward members for sharing on social networks.

With Visa’s real-time messaging technology, M life Mobile Offers provides personalized offers from MGM Resorts’ destinations in Las Vegas for Visa account holders who opt into the program. Visa account holders may visit the website and enroll their eligible account and mobile phone number.

Once in, members may receive offers to enhance their Las Vegas experience via SMS text to their mobile phones. Other MGM gaming destinations across the U.S. will be added over the coming year.

Through a relationship with Topguest, a product of Switchfly, Inc., M life now rewards members for sharing their MGM Resorts’ adventures via popular social networks.

Members who link their social media accounts will receive 500 M life Tier Credits when they virtually check in with Facebook Places or Foursquare, post a location-tagged tweet to Twitter, or share an Instagram photo from participating MGM Resorts’ venues on the Las Vegas Strip, in Biloxi or Tunica, Miss., or Detroit, Mich.

Players in that system can earn 500 Tier Credits per resort per day. In Las Vegas, you can earn up to 6,000 credits if you visit all 12 participating properties in a day and advance more quickly to the next Tier Level.
