2. CARUSO REWARDS POINTS
2.1. Earning Caruso Rewards Points. Persons enrolled in the program may earn one point per dollar spent at participating stores, kiosks, restaurants, movie theaters and other services available at both The Grove and The Americana at Brand (“Qualifying Purchases”). Gift card purchases of any kind do not constitute Qualifying Purchases. We reserve the right to modify the types of purchases and transactions that constitute Qualifying Purchases from time to time in our sole discretion. Caruso Rewards points are earned on a one-for-one basis in accordance with the dollar amount of each Qualifying Purchase. For example, a qualifying purchase of $100 will correspond to 100 Caruso Rewards points. From time to time, promotional programs awarding Caruso Rewards points at a greater than a $1 to 1 ratio may be implemented (such as, for example, a “double points” promotion wherein a Qualifying Purchase of $1 will earn 2 Caruso Rewards points). Notwithstanding any other provision of these Program Terms, the maximum number of Caruso Rewards points awarded from Qualifying Purchases eligible for Caruso Rewards redemptions in any calendar year is 250,000.
- Each Qualifying Purchase must be evidenced by a receipt that is logged and associated with your membership account. You may log receipts for qualifying purchases by either logging onto Caruso Rewards’ mobile application or uploading a photograph of the receipt, or by presenting the receipt to staff at the Concierge Services desk at either Retail Center. Receipts for Qualifying Purchases with a total value of more than $3,500 will not be accepted through the mobile application and must be presented to Concierge Staff at the retail center to be eligible for Caruso Rewards points. Receipts for purchases from and after November 15, 2014 are eligible for Caruso Rewards points. All purchase receipts will be accepted only once. Receipts must be scanned or presented to Concierge Services (as applicable) within 60 days of purchase to receive Caruso Rewards points.

Most have a value of approximately $25. The 2,500-point reward options may include items such as: a $25 parking reward, movie tickets, a car wash, or a $25 Caruso Rewards gift card. The $25 Caruso Rewards gift card may be used at stores, kiosks, restaurants, and movie theaters at The Grove and The Americana at Brand. Some stores may not accept the Caruso Rewards gift cards.

Members who have qualified for free self- or valet parking will receive one (1) automatic gate opener for use during the duration of Caruso Rewards. Free parking will expire 365 days from date automatic gate opener is received. A member may upload funds to his or her membership account and utilize the automatic gate opener following that time period unless he or she qualifies for another year of free parking. If another self-parking or valet pass is earned within that 365 days that reward will supersede the previous and the 365 days will start over.
- When a 2,500 reward is redeemed, points will not reset to 0; when a parking milestone is redeemed, points will not reset to 0; all points will reset after 25,000 points are earned and have been redeemed for redemption Rewards. Points will remain in the history of each member’s member account profile.
