JACKSONVILLE, NC – Jacksonville Mall is celebrating the upcoming academic year through prizes and promotions while partnering with local nonprofit, United Way of Onslow County, to set all students up for a successful school year.
Shopping just got more rewarding!

To participate, customers must upload pictures of their receipts at spendandscore.com by Sept. 30. Receipts from multiple transactions during the promotion dates will be accepted.
Spirited shoppers unite!
