New York—Grand Central Terminal, the home of Metro-North Railroad, announced today the return of its shopping rewards program “Grand Central Rewards” for the holiday season following the success of its first-phase launch in September.
Through “Grand Central Rewards,” visitors to the Terminal can win prizes for shopping throughout the iconic landmark through Dec. 20. Shoppers who spend a minimum of $50 at dining and retail stores in four distinct zones of the Terminal can redeem their receipts for limited-edition gifts with a Grand Central Centennial theme.
The Grand Central Rewards program works as follows:
●The Terminal is split into four distinct shopping zones: West of the Clock (in the Main Concourse), East of the Clock, the Dining Concourse and Grand Central Market.
●Visitors must shop in at least one store in each zone and spend a combined minimum of $50 from Nov. 15 to Dec. 20.
●A Grand Central Rewards brochure/folio that includes a zone shopping map and a pocket to keep receipts is available at the Information Booth in the Main Concourse or Grand Central stores & restaurants. After spending a combined minimum of $50 total in all four zones, shoppers can turn in receipts for a corresponding gift, while supplies last.
Limited Edition Gift Rewards
Retail and dining tenants in the Terminal offer everything patrons could need in one convenient location: last-minute travel needs, fashion and beauty products, prepared and gourmet food, fresh-food ingredients, high-end clothing, jewelry, accessories and more. Among the 100 shops and restaurants participating in “Grand Central Rewards” are Bobbi Brown, Vince Camuto, Kidding Around Toys, Jo Malone, Cursive, Cipriani Dolci, Financier Patisserie, L’Occitane, Grand Central Optical, Kenneth Cole New York, Eli Zabar’s Bread & Pastry, Oren’s Daily Roast, Ciao Bella Gelato, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters and Tri Tip Grill.

(These limited-edition gifts are subject to availability.)
