JUST ADDED! ADDITIONAL WINTER NATIONAL TV OPPORTUNITY FOR RETAIL MEMBERS
Are you looking to promote your gift card program on national television during the winter holidays? Due to popular demand, the RGCA has added an additional national TV opportunity for members – sign up now

The RGCA is offering this national television opportunity for consumer-facing members to promote their gift card programs at a significantly discounted rate. The national TV opportunity will air on more than 400 regional TV stations across the country and reach more than six million viewers. Check out our 2019 winter segment.

The Fletcher Group, RGCA’s PR firm, will manage the entire process for you. You will just need to provide inactive gift cards, packaging and a few sentences about your gift card program—they’ll do the rest! The cost for participation is $2,500.

WHAT SHOULD WE DISCUSS AT FUTURE COFFEE BREAKS?
