Mesa Sales Receipts for Mesa Arts Center “Mesa Bucks”

Mesa shoppers and prideful residents, save your receipts because now they can be exchanged for tickets to Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis, the Moscow State Radio Symphony Orchestra and more.


When you shop at Mesa-only department stores, fast-food restaurants and retail outlets, you can bring in your sales receipts into the Mesa Arts Center Box Office for “Mesa Bucks” in the amount of each receipt’s sales tax. These “Mesa Bucks” can be used to buy tickets at the Mesa Arts Center, Arizona Museum for Youth and Arizona Museum of Natural History.

Ticket-hungry people can bring in receipts dated after April 1, 2009 with sales tax amounts of more than $3 and less than $200 each visit. But before you are given tickets bought with Mesa Bucks, you must purchase one ticket with cash.

You can even use your Mesa Bucks to purchase tickets to the Mesa Arts Center’s most popular series, known as the MAC’s Performing Live, which go on sale this Saturday.

There will be a limited number of seats purchases with Mesa Bucks available for certain shows.

    Great way to encourage community involvement. Tempe built an outstanding center for the arts a few years ago and I don’t think it it’s being used to it’s full potential. This is, at the smallest level, good press
