From upscale malls and famous department stores to boutiques and specialty shops, browsing and buying is a favorite pastime for residents and visitors of Greater Miami and the Beaches.  This February 1 – 28, shoppers get more bang for their buck as the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) introduces Shop Miami Month showcasing the destination’s world-renowned marketplaces and retail establishments.

How does it work?

  • Reward Cards: For each $500 spent at participating malls, marketplaces and retailers, consumers receive a $20 Shop Miami Month Reward Card (limit one per customer, per day, while supplies last)
  • Prizes: All consumers who earn a Shop Miami Reward Card are also entered to win prizes such as an MSC Cruise for two, American Airlines round trip tickets, hotel stays, Miami Spa Month vouchers, Miami Spice vouchers and more! 

 “Miami and The Beaches continues to be a leading global shopping destination and a full service, year round vacation destination.  We’ve found visitors are staying longer and taking in our retail, cultural, sporting and family attractions as well as our pristine beaches and stunning poolscapes,” says GMCVB President and CEO William D. Talbert, III, CDME. “And, with our record breaking tourism numbers contributing to our strong economy and employment, we have a feeling our residents will be happy to get in on the Shop Miami Month rewards, too!”

Shop Miami Month is part of the GMCVB’s increasingly popular Temptations Program, which takes a thematic focus on the best that Miami has to offer throughout the year at attractive prices. Other programs include Miami Spa Month, Miami Spice, Miami Attractions Month, Miami Museum Month, Miami Film Month, Miami Golf Month and Miami Live Music Month.  For more information on the Temptations programs please visit www.MiamiTemptations.com.
