CUNA files amicus brief in important Florida interchange case

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr CUNA today filed an amicus brief Thursday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, in a case raising many of the policy issues surrounding credit card interchange fees. The case, Dana’s Railroad Supply v. Bondi, involves a First Amendment challenge to Florida’s ban on merchants surcharging users of credit cards.The retailers bringing the lawsuits argue that price determination is a form of free speech, and that in banning surcharges, merchants are unable to protest interchange fees, which they deem to be too high.Interchange fees occur when a credit card transaction takes place, and are how credit unions are compensated for making cards available to merchants. As the CUNA brief notes, merchants receive a number of benefits from participating in the credit card system, including being able to keep staff levels low, allowing for transactions at unattended locations like gas pumps or online, as well as protecting merchants from fraud and insufficient fund losses.“Nothing about the Florida Statute prohibits merchants from doing anything at the point-of-sale (or anywhere else) in an attempt to persuade consumers to use cash instead of a credit card,” CUNA Senior Director of Advocacy and Counsel for Special Projects Robin Cook argued in the brief. continue reading »last_img read more

True story: How far will you go to serve your members?

We wanted to know in what way the credit union had gone above and beyond to serve them? We received many great stories, and they continue to come in. Not only were the marketing gold, but sharing the stories with the staff at the credit union reinforced how appreciative members are when they give 110%.Though many stories were heartwarming, none showed the dedication of this particular credit union better than this story from a member:I sincerely apologize for placing you in the middle of a heated conversation without warning, when I was at the Finance Depart at the Auto Dealership. Originally, the car was valued at $22,500 (According to the Sticker Price), after almost walking away from the whole deal, they redesigned the offer to $20,500 plus LIC-Tax-and Doc Fees . . . I completely disagreed with that price, and told them that I was going to Test Drive a BMW I liked at another Dealership, and that car was priced at $19,000. When the sales guy asked me: “How much would you like to buy the car for?” I said $19,000 out the door! They came back at me with an offer of $19,250, and I took it!The Dealership gave me such a hard time when the finance discussions started:last_img read more
