A Save Haven
Money may be tight, but you can relax in the comfort of your own hometown. See how this local savings program makes both customers and businesses happy.

Every frugalista wants to save money, but clipping coupons can lead to more clutter in your life, which celebrity organizer Peter Walsh says actually can cost you money. My All Card takes a step toward both your money-saving and clutter-cutting goals.


Developed by three local men, My All Card maintains a three-pronged mission. "First and foremost, we want to save our customers money in these tough economic times," Co-founder Brandon Guttman says. So My All Card offers its members deals and discounts at places all around town. From restaurants to dry cleaners, varied businesses participate in My All Card to provide members with more cash-friendly ways to enjoy their city.


To use your My All Card, simply present your card at a participating vendor at the time of purchase. Participating vendors indicate your ability to use your card with a sign on their door that says that they accept My All Card, but you can also find participating vendors at the My All Card Web site.


The second objective for My All Card is to provide a different approach for local businesses to market themselves. Vendors who participate in the program can join for free. This policy allows businesses to promote themselves and bring more customers through the door without the expense of advertising. Also, in allowing vendors to join for free, more businesses can join, which gives members more bang for their buck in the My All Card program.


As the final aim of My All Card, Guttman and co-founders Seth Wiener and Sean Herron incorporate a "revolutionary component," Guttman says. Vendors of My All Card can sell the My All Card at their respective locations and receive a commission from the sale. "What was once a cost center for your business can now be a profit center," Guttman says.


Membership costs only $9.96 per month, and members can quit the program at any time. The program is designed to cost 33 cents per day. "If we can't save you more than 33 cents a day, then you shouldn't be our customer. But we can, and we do. We're doing it right now," Guttman says.


Guttman doesn't foresee the price of the card changing, but he does expect the card to increase in value. As more and more vendors jump into the ring, My All Card members will be able to take advantage of more and more deals and discounts so that they can save more and more money.
