The North Coast Journal is excited to offer Humboldt County the Smartcard App. It is your way to receive instant discounts from your favorite retailers and restaurants in your area. Think of it as a pre-paid discount credit card. You add money to the Smartcard with your credit card and use the Smartcard to make purchases that are all discounted.Your GPS will list all the participating merchants in your area. Easily read the associated discount for your favorite merchant. Once you visit the merchant and receive your bill, launch the Smartcard app and enter the exact transaction amount into the app. The merchant discount will be automatically calculated and the discounted amount will be subtracted from your pre-paid Smartcard account.
