The RGCA wishes you a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for all you contribute to the RGCA and the industry!

RGCA TIPS FOR SAFE GIFT CARD USE
We know that gift cards are a safe and convenient (and popular!) gifting and payment option. To help ensure positive gift card experiences for consumers, we're sharing these tips with our members, consumers, and the media.


NEXT COFFEE BREAK - HOLIDAY DESIGNS
Our virtual coffee breaks have been excellent opportunities to share knowledge and connections between RGCA members. Remember to join us every Thursday at 10:30am CT/11:30am ET for casual conversations on a variety of topics.

We'll be off next week for Thanksgiving, but join us on December 3 to chat about holiday designs.

If you have requests for discussion topics and/or would like to lead a discussion, please contact Megan Flanagan at mflanagan@thergca.org.

LEGAL AND LEGISLATIVE UPDATES
The November legislative update has been posted to the website. We have recently become aware of two class action cases filed in California relating to a retailer's alleged failure to provide cash back upon request by a consumer. While we won't comment on the merits of the cases, it is a good reminder to review the states that require a retailer to provide cash back and the specific circumstances relating to such requirements. The RGCA maintains a report of cash back policies by state on our website.

Remember that one of your member benefits is 2.5 hours per year with Elish Meyers (lmeyers@rousepc.com) on any gift card legal matter.
