TableCard, a new mobile application offering Los Angeles smart phone users discounts every time they check-in, today announced their launch in the growing Los Angeles tech scene. TableCard is a platform that provides users with standing discounts at nearby restaurants. Restaurant owners promote these discounts on the TableCard app that consumers can access at no cost. TableCard currently has over 400 restaurants signed up to the platform, offering an average of 20% off at all times.
"We're excited to launch TableCard to the ever expanding Los Angeles food and technology scene," said Ari Afshar, co-founder of TableCard. "Los Angeles has become one of the nation's leading restaurant and food destinations, and we're happy to bring LA diners a useful technology, affording them significant discounts every time they dine at their favorite LA eateries, and check-in using the TableCard app."
TableCard's major advantage is its ability to offer a user standing discounts at all participating restaurants. Users can enjoy the same discounts again and again at no cost to them. There is no planning or pre-purchase required, TableCard adapts to the user's existing dining habits.
TableCard is donating 1% of all revenue to local Los Angeles food banks, and aims to donate 250,000 meals by April 2014. Consumers & TableCard restaurant partners will help contribute in achieving this goal.
Key features and functionality include:
- Download the App from iTunes App Store

- Choose where to use the discount
- Check-in using TableCard
- Show the discount screen when you arrive
- Enjoy a discount of up to 50% off every time
"We're happy to partner with TableCard and help the local community by giving back to the local food banks," said Lorenzo Caccialanza, co-owner of Café Med on LA's Sunset strip. "We believe that we should all help where we can and TableCard's platform gives users of the app a great way to save money while helping us all energize the local community."
Notable Los Angeles restaurants that are TableCard partners, include: Chaya (Venice, Beverly Hills, Downtown), Café Med, Pace, Magnolia, Ca Brea, Geisha House, Off Vine, and many more.
