SuperMall launches 'Earning for Learning' program

The Auburn SuperMall launched its "Earning for Learning" partnership program designed to promote education in local school districts.
The program encourages families and friends to shop at the SuperMall over an eight-week promotional period (Aug. 15-Oct. 5) to earn points and ultimately, cash prizes for the school of their choice.
The Earning for Learning program will award cash prizes totaling $20,000 to five area schools.
“Earning for Learning reinforces SuperMall’s continued commitment to our community, schools
and to the city of Auburn," said Greg Fleser, SuperMall general manager. "We are excited to provide area schools with the monetary means to support their individual needs.”
Each dollar customers spend can be turned into points for the school of their choice.
Mondays and Tuesdays are identified as “Double-Point Days” and receipts from those select days earn the school double points. Purchases of SuperMall gift cards earn triple points for the schools. Several bonus point opportunities will also be held throughout the promotion in conjunction with SuperMall’s upcoming events, including a spelling bee and “are you smarter than a fifth-grader” style game show.
Full event listings and bonus point opportunities can be found at
Shoppers can redeem their receipts for points at Guest Services in SuperMall’s Train Court and designate their school of choice.
SuperMall will keep an updated schools standings board. At the end of the contest, the top five schools will be awarded cash prizes of $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000, respectively.
The winning schools will be notified by Oct. 13.
Last year, area schools brought in over 310,000 points. Emerald Hills Elementary of Bonney Lake, last year’s grand prize winner, was awarded $10,000. Every K-12 school in the state of Washington is eligible to participate in the contest and is not required to sign up.
