FAQ - GENERAL QUESTIONS
What is an Affiliate Program and how does it work?
Our Affiliate Program allows you to place our property links and
banners on your web site. These links and banners provide your users
with the ability to book reservations with us and allow sales to be tracked from your web site. Each time a user makes a Qualified Booking and stays with one of our participating properties via that online booking, we pay you!
How do I benefit from the Affiliate Program?
As an Affiliate, you have unlimited potential to earn high commissions - all you have to do is install our text links and/or banner ads. In addition, you also add value to the content of your site by offering users information and easy access to the premiere Las Vegas properties.
Which MGM Resorts properties are eligible to earn commission on in the Affiliate Program?
Aria, Bellagio, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York New York, Luxor, Excalibur, Circus Circus Las Vegas, Beau Rivage (Biloxi, MS), Gold Strike Tunica, THEhotel, Signature, MGM Grand Detroit and Circus Circus Reno.
Is there a cost to be an Affiliate?
No. Our Affiliate Program is absolutely free.
How do I sign up?
First you must read our Affiliate Operating Agreement. If you accept our agreement terms, proceed to enroll as an Affiliate by completing our online application form. Upon completion of the form, we will review your site. A W9 (U.S. affiliates) or a W8BEN (international affiliates) must be on file before final applications can be approved. Upon acceptance, we will provide you access to our Affiliate membership site, as well as detailed information on how to get started so you can begin earning commissions immediately.
What are the ways that an Affiliate can
earn commission in your program?
An Affiliate will only earn commissions for Qualified Bookings at MGM Resorts properties. From time to time, we may implement special programs and will notify Affiliates of any new opportunities as they arise.
What am I responsible for as an Affiliate?
You are responsible for installing and updating links on your site through our Affiliate membership site. This web site provides you with all the necessary tools and support you need. We handle all reservations, billing, and customer service.
Does my web site qualify to become an Affiliate?
Most sites will qualify for the Affiliate Program. However, we do reserve the right to refuse membership to a site or revoke a site's membership at any time. Please refer to section III and VII of our Affiliate Operating Agreement for more information.
Can I operate more than one web site? If so, is it possible to monitor them separately and pay me with one check?
Yes. The Affiliate Program allows you to have numerous web sites under one main account. For each site, you can append a specific SubID to the linking code that will help identify each different web site (or page) in your status reports. For reporting and monitoring, there is a Sub ID Report which will have all of the data in regards to clicks, transactions, and commissions. As long as you only have one account set up, we will pay you with one commission check for all of your sites. Please note that approval for your main account does not automatically mean that subsequent web sites will be approved.
Can a web site outside the United States be an Affiliate?
Yes. We invite applicants from around the world to take advantage of this program. However, users that book online must pay in U.S. dollars. All commission checks to Affiliates will also be in U.S. dollars.
Can I still apply to be an Affiliate if I have no web site?
Unfortunately, no. We must be able to view your site throughout your participation in the program.
As an Affiliate, will traffic increase to my site?
We provide you with the tools that allow you to earn income through a revenue-sharing program. It is not designed to direct traffic to your site; however, it does provide additional content on your web site to enhance the overall user experience.
Can I participate in other web sites' affiliate programs?
Yes. Participation in the MGM Resorts Affiliate Program does not limit you from participating in other web sites' Affiliate Programs.
