Bonus and Publicity Points

There are two ways to gain extra points for your school.

  1. Bonus Points - Bonus points are extra points your school can earn when your students attend mall special events. Examples include: Kid’s Club Events, Photos with Santa and the Easter Bunny, showing your report cards and shopping at highlighted retailers. A sign-in sheet will be provided at each of these opportunities and points will be allocated to your school when you sign in.
  2. Publicity Points - Anytime you promote the School Shopping program to your school or in the community, you have the opportunity to submit that promotion for additional points. You can earn 1,000 points for each submission, up to 10,000 publicity points per month for your school! Publicity points must be sent by the 5th of the next month to be counted toward your monthly ranking.
