CHICAGO, IL – America’s Premier Shopping Places, a collection of tourism-oriented shopping centers owned and/or managed by General Growth Properties, Inc (NYSE: GGP), offers domestic and international travelers a nationwide incentive program named Premier Passport. The program provides visitors with an array of exclusive shopping and dining offers, savings, amenities, and added-value promotions from participating retailers and restaurants at each center. With the variety of shopping and dining options available to both group and leisure travelers throughout America’s Premier Shopping Places, Premier Passport provides offers and services as unique as each destination.
Whether travelers are visiting popular urban destinations such as Riverwalk Marketplace in New Orleans, Water Tower Place in Chicago, Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, The Grand Canal Shoppes in Las Vegas, etc., or experiencing regional destinations such as The Woodlands Mall in The Woodlands, TX; Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham; or Pioneer Place in Portland; they will be treated to an exclusive Premier Passport welcome packet designed especially for that destination.
Premier Passports are available to travelers in three languages – English, Spanish, and Japanese. The four-color, pre-printed vouchers are available free of charge to travel professionals and distributed through participating travel agents, tour operators, and meeting planners along with customers’ travel documents. In addition, travel professionals can print a “voucher on demand” by visiting www.americasshoppingplaces.com , or they can request a pdf of the voucher, which can be emailed to their clients before departing on their trip. These vouchers are available in English, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, and Mandarin.
Upon arrival at any one of America’s Premier Shopping Places, the visitor presents their Premier Passport at Guest Services or a designated retail location noted on the Passport to receive their complimentary welcome packet. The offerings vary at each center due to the unique assortment of stores and restaurants offered at each location. For instance, in addition to shopping and dining specials at The Grand Canal Shoppes in Las Vegas, Premier Passport offers include discounts to Grand Canyon Airlines, Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters, Pole Position Raceway, and more.
Every Premier Passport visitor receives a welcome letter, store directory, coupon book, or printed listing of discounts and/or exclusive offers from stores and restaurants, which are only available to out-of-town guests upon presentation of their driver’s license or passport. Visitors are encouraged to retain their Premier Passport voucher to utilize in other America’s Premier Shopping Places destinations when traveling throughout the USA.
Travel industry professionals appreciate the simplicity and convenience of the Premier Passport program. The Passports are welcomed at all of America’s Premier Shopping Places across the country – from Honolulu to New York, Miami to Portland – eliminating the need to store vouchers or coupon books for multiple destinations.
