Save Money at Local Businesses With Choose Local Card

December 22nd, 2008

Due to the mind-boggling amount of snow outside my house, I’ve been surfing the ‘net all morning and discovered the Choose Local Card.

The Choose Local Card is free and allows you to get discounts at more than 100 local businesses in Portland. You can pick up the card at many locations around town. Once you do, you register your card at Then, once a month, you’ll get an email about current deals. You can also check for deals on the Choose Local website.

I love this idea. By using the card, I support our local economy and save money at the same time. And it’s free.

Once I can leave my house, I’m definitely getting this card.
