Live Local is a buy local card / mobile app for the Mission. Buy the card for $20 at local businesses and flash it at all participating businesses, all year long. Instead of a big discount good only one time, get little discounts good all the time. Think of it as a replacement for all those buy-10-get-1-free cards.
For folks who spend a lot of time in the Mission, the card will quickly recoup its value, and local businesses can use it to reward loyal neighbors and patrons.
The daily deal sites encourage people to coupon-hop around the bay area, never returning to pay full price. Live Local Mission encourages people to go back to the local businesses repeatedly. Get to know the folks who work there and your neighbors who frequent the same places.
By strengthening the bonds between Mission residents and businesses, Live Local Mission strengthen community bonds and incentives buying locally. Use the Live Local card at 35+ local Mission businesses and nonprofits, and help support the Mission.
