Unless they changed it, the card gets you two 24 hour buffet passes, not something you earn with a little amount of play.


They usually just give them to me if I ask. And small amounts of play always yields BOGO buffet offers. I realize that's the list price, but I wouldn't value 2 passes anywhere near $100.

You can get two buffet passes, two High Roller tickets, a free night's stay, or two show tickets. When you are approved for the card they send you a voucher with those options on it, and you just take it to a Total Rewards desk at a casino and tell them which one you want.

They give you two Buffet of Buffet passes just for asking? I think you are talking about something else.

I have had my total rewards visa for several years.
Been pretty happy with the benefits
I use it a lot and pay off the balance every month so I score about 150.00 a year to spend on food and or a show.
Now MGM has a credit card and their reward look more flexible. The TR visa rewards, pretty much food or shows. MGM master, food and shows but also room and gambling
I am switching

It was a Buffet of Buffets when I got it a few years ago. I hadn't used my TR card for several years and they dropped my credit limit to $200.

I have both (among other things, MLife is MasterCard, while TR is Visa; buying too many things in a short amount of time online on one card tends to generate "Did you really purchase all of these?" phone calls).

Does the MLife card give you a percentage back on your overall spending (presumably in MLife hotels "credit"), the way TR does?

I am assuming so
but I didn't check all the fine print
I will see how much I earn over a year to see if its worth it
