The halls will be decked—along with the tree-lined streets—as CityGate Centre, the live, work, play community at Rte. 59 between I-88 and Ferry Rd. in Naperville, welcomes events of the season: Memorable holiday celebrations and a gift that lasts a lifetime through its CityGate XP guest rewards program.
Black Friday—Friday, Nov. 24
Those planning some Black Friday shopping might add to their Thanksgiving weekend plans Hotel Arista’s “Shop & Play” package: An overnight stay that includes a VIP welcome bag from Chicago Premium Outlet Mall, a $50 Mall gift card and complimentary transportation between CityGate Centre and the Mall. Get details and reserve at www.HotelArista.com/packages.
And on Black Friday CityGate Centre is launching its annual gift card promotion: Every $100 in gift card purchases earns a $25 gift certificate. In addition, since CityGate Centre gift cards do double duty as CityGate XP rewards program membership cards, recipients can immediately earn $10 in rewards points—on top of the gift card value—when they register their card and become CityGate XP members.
“Beyond the ability to use gift cards at any CityGate Hospitality amenity, what’s really exciting about our gift card program is the cards can be converted to membership cards for the CityGate XP rewards program” said Brandon Sheldon, CityGate Hospitality’s vice president of operations. “It isn’t a one-and-done gift since XP members can continue to earn points, be rewarded and receive exclusive offers.”
CityGate XP members earn rewards each time they dine or spa at a participating CityGate Centre location: CityGate Grille, Che Figata, Lavazza, Tap In Pub and Arista Spa & Salon. Reward points can be converted to dollars in members’ XP accounts, redeemable at the same locations plus Hotel Arista. XP members are also eligible for exclusive promotions and bonus points.
The gift card promotion is available through Dec. 30. XP gift cards may be purchased at CityGate Centre or online at www.CityGateXP.com, where cardholders can also register their card to become members, or add a new card to their existing membership.
