Your Community Cash balance may change over time as the ratio changes between stores as the network grows; without notification and without purchase authorization on your account. Points noted as Community Cash are not tied to redemption in store and in no way can they be used towards cash purchases or be applied in any form of credit in a local CARDlis store.
CARDlis will not be held liable for unauthorized use of Community Cash or any discrepancies noted in a balance, and Community Cash will not be refunded or returned on an accidental purchase or application.
