Buying any cotton this weekend?

Plow $150 into cotton merchandise at Westgate Mall during this weekend -- the sales tax holiday weekend on many back-to-school items -- and you can take home a $20 gift card good for another cotton purchase.

The rewards program is being offered by Westgate Mall and Cotton Inc., a research and marketing company that promotes upland cotton. Westgate is one of 20 malls nationwide to have launched the program, a statement said.

To claim a gift card, shoppers must present receipts showing cotton merchandise purchases totaling $150 or more to the Westgate Mall Customer Service Center beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday. The $20 reward gift cards will be given out as long as they last.

Westgate Mall will stay open longer during the tax-free weekend. Stores will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from noon to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Information about items eligible for sales tax-free purchase during the weekend is available here on our Web site or at the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Web site.
