How do I download the Caruso app?

How can I use the Caruso app?
You can use the Caruso app to scan receipts; check point balances; see when you qualify for rewards such as complimentary parking, gift cards and movie tickets; access your free parking; select your rewards; and more.
How many points do I need to earn rewards?
For every 2,500 points you earn, you will receive your choice of one redemption reward from the reward options provided during that period. At 15,000 points, you will receive complimentary self-parking for one year and an automatic gate opener that works at The Grove and The Americana at Brand. At 25,000 points, you will receive complimentary valet parking for one year (with a self-parking option included).
How can I track and redeem my points?
You can track and redeem your points on the Caruso mobile app, online at TheGroveLA.com or AmericanaAtBrand.com, or by speaking with Caruso Concierge at either location. You will be notified by email when you have earned a reward.
When do my points expire?
Your points never expire. You will receive a reward every time you earn 2,500 points. Your points will continue to accumulate until you reach the 25,000-point level, at which time you will receive a one-year valet parking reward (with a self-parking option included). After you have redeemed your reward at the 25,000-point level, the rewards tiers will continue in 2,500-point increments all over again. Caruso reserves the right to change or modify the point structure of Caruso Rewards at any time.
How do the parking rewards work?
When you reach 2,500 points, you will receive your choice of one of four rewards, including a $25 parking reward. If you choose the $25 parking reward, you can access it through the Caruso mobile app or at the Caruso Concierge desk.
At 15,000 points, you will receive one year of complimentary self-parking and an automatic gate opener that works at The Grove and The Americana at Brand.
At 25,000 points, you will receive one year of complimentary valet parking (with a self-parking option included). For the self- and valet parking rewards, you will need to stop by the Caruso Concierge desk at either The Grove or The Americana at Brand to receive an automatic gate opener and instructions.
Any guest who spends $250 or more in one day at either property will receive a one-day valet or self-parking validation good for up to 30 days.
