Status Match from Hyatt Diamond to Mlife Platinum & MGM Mlife Reward Changes on 12/15/2015

(Hat Tip to Nigel)

Good morning everyone.  If you recently status matched to Hyatt Diamond, you may be interested in status matching to Mlife Platinum.  However, if you are Hyatt Platinum (Chase Hyatt credit card holder), you will only be matched to Mlife Gold.  Lastly, if you have no status with Hyatt, you will only be matched to Mlife Sapphire (base level).  This graphic probably explains it better than I can:

Let me be honest, I am not much of a gambler (see exhibit A below, where I turned $40 into 15 cents at the slot machines).  But If you are a gambler (hopefully you have better luck than I do), you might already have an MLife Rewards card with points.  Apparently there is a minor devaluation coming to Mlife on December 15, 2015, according to this announcement.

Good afternoon everyone, I just got back from Safeway and saw this gift card promo going on.  From now through December 1, you can get a coupon for $15 off $25 after you purchase $125 of participating gift cards (Amazon and eBay gift cards included).  The terms of the offer say that the $15 off coupon must be redeemed within 7 days and cannot be used to purchase gift cards, so take that into consideration.
