    Shop or dine at The Mall at Johnson City to earn points for your school. Bring your receipts to the Guest Service Center and tell the guest services representative the school to add your points. Each dollar you spend between July 29th and September 18th equals one point.

    Receipts are stamped to show redemption and must be turned in the same day of purchase. Receipts may only be used once. The receipt must be the original. Duplicate receipts, photo-copies, faxes and internet orders will not be accepted. All receipts must be received by 6:00 p.m. on September 18, 2016.

    Select retailers will be chosen weekly for double point shopping.
    At the end of the event, the top five schools with the highest points per student ratio will determine the winning schools. The total number of points for each school is divided by the number of students enrolled in the school. All schools, regardless of size, will start with a minimum student enrollment of 400. Enrollment numbers are gathered from the 2013 Report Cards published by the state’s board of education, or they can be provided by the schools.
