School Cents Program

Help Mar Vista earn free money while you shop! You can help our school win a prize of $200 to $5,000 from Santa Monica Place and Westside Pavilion’s School Cents school rewards program.  It's easy! This is how it works.

Between now and April 30, 2015 when you shop, dine, or take in a movie at either the Westside Pavilion or the Santa Monica Place submit your receipts at the or Westside Pavilion Guest Services desk or Santa Monica Place Concierge. No need for personal information. Just tell them you want Mar Vista to get your School Cents points. Our school will earn five points for each dollar you spend.  It is that easy! And if you shop in April School Cents will triple our points! Be sure to submit your receipts by the 7th of the following month. For example, all your February receipts must be submitted by March 7th. If you forget to submit your receipts during your trip to the mall, you may drop off your receipts in the box marked "School Cents" conveniently placed just inside the entrance of the school and they will be submitted for points on your behalf.

Also note that a Blood Drive will be held on Friday April 3, 2015 at Westside Pavilion from 12:30pm to 6:00pm. Our school will earn 10,000 bonus points per blood donor. By participating you'll not only be contributing to a worthy cause but you'll help your child's school as well! 

Visit shoppingpartnership.com/WSPSMP for store listings, shopping hours and to see how Mar Vista school is doing in the competition. You can also sign up to get monthly reminders.
