Thank you to RGCA member Blackhawk Network for featuring the RGCA’s thought leadership and promoting the industry in a recent article published more than 700 times that has reached more than 113M consumers so far.
 
Are you looking to promote your gift card program to hundreds of millions of consumers? To help our members recover from the impacts of COVID-19, the RGCA is offering the exclusive opportunity to be part of a nationally syndicated article that urges Americans to spend their gift cards once the holiday season concludes.
