Holiday gifts a big feature at MGM, Golden Nugget and Cannery slot clubs

November 08, 2016 3:01 AM


With the holidays coming up, you can find many opportunities to use slot club points for shopping and gifts. Last week we covered Caesars Entertainment’s Great Gift Wrap Up. This week we’ll look at MGM’s Holiday Gift Shoppe as well as the Golden Nugget’s Gift Point Program and the Cannery’s Premium Gift Gallery.

MGM Resorts International will host their annual Holiday Gift Shoppe at the MGM Grand, Nov. 10-13, and at Bellagio, Dec. 1-4. Eligible M life members receive one Holiday Gift Shoppe Point (gift point) for every one M life point earned this year from Jan. 1 to 6 p.m., Dec. 4, plus any Gift Points earned during Holiday Gift Shoppe Bonus points promotions during the same period.

Each participant’s available gift point balance will be confirmed in-person at the Holiday Gift Shoppe event check-in. Only the balance in the Shoppe system will be honored. Gifts Points expire at 11:59 p.m., Dec. 4. Eligible M life members must be present.

Gift Points are not transferable and have no cash value, but may be combined between two persons listed on an M life linked account. Holiday Gift Shoppe merchandise, gift cards, and/or freeplay may only be received by redeeming Gift Points in person at the shopping event and may not be purchased, in whole, with cash or any other form of payment. Shipping to addresses within the 50 United States and Canada is included.

Participating MGM properties include Aria, Bellagio, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage, Monte Carlo and New York, New York. For more information, visit:

The Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas has a new Gift Points program that includes all your earned points from this past year, running from Jan. 1 through Nov. 13. By playing your favorite slots, video poker and table games, you rack up Gift Points in addition to your regular club points and then treat yourself at the year-end shopping event Nov. 11-13.

Players earn one Golden Gift Point for every Tier Credit accumulated. These are separate from your Tier Credits, so redeeming won’t affect your standing. Check the website for up to date gift items available at

Cannery Resorts (both on Craig Road and Boulder Highway) offer a combined Premium Gift Gallery where you can choose from a variety of gifts from the online rewards catalog using your CAN club points. Visit for more information.

Happy shopping!
