Just fired up my Amex account and noticed the following targeted offer: spend $500+ and get 10k Membership Rewards. Note the terms and conditions at the bottom of this post, and the expiration of 8/29/19. Feature image courtesy of MGM Resorts

Let’s take a look at this example.
Let’s say I want to stay at the Bellagio from July 21 to 23. Via, Amex’s FHR website you can stay for a rate of $179 per night. You’d also get $100 food and beverage credit. One of my favorite shows in Vegas, which I’ve seen a couple times and highly recommend, is O. The cheapest seats you’ll snag there are
One of my favorite things to do in Vegas is see Cirque du Soleil, and one of my favorite Cirque shows is at Bellagio: “O” – the cheapest seats will set you back $107.37.

Earning Hyatt points
If you’re booking this via MGM or Hyatt then you’ll earn Hyatt points on basically every dollar you spend, including the room rate and much of the incidental. However…if you’re booking via Amex FHR ( you may still earn on the room rate, this is YMMV ) but the only thing that is guaranteed are many of the incidentals.
