As local Park City businesses begin to climb onboard the Internet train, a little card is making its way to hometown mailboxes. Instead of coupons and flyers, all you need to do to get a hot special in Park City is sign up online for your new locals' card. You can even get a free spa treatment at Align Spa just for signing up. The Park City Local Card is a 100 percent post consumer recycled plastic discount card that is available free to Park City, locals, and seasonal residents.  

No cost for locals and no more senseless wasted paper.

We never thought of this before, but tearing out a newspaper coupon means ‘more' waste. We doubt anyone will stop advertising in the Park Record anytime soon, but it's a better notion to carry around one card rather than a stack of coupons that wear out or get lost when you need them the most.

The Local Card is not a credit card and there is no special requirement or charge to get it other than a local address. Simply provide some basic contact information and you will receive 15-70 percent discounts at all participating Park City businesses when you show your card.

It's actually a decent idea for businesses as they can actually track who's using what.
