What Our Members Are Saying

I have used the Smartercard book over the last 3 years and saved massive amounts of money. The eclectic mix of venues in the book will appeal to every circumstance, from a business lunch, to a romantic meal for two or a celebratory family meal.

I've been a member of SmarterCard since April 2010 and often use my membership and enjoy the savings and new places to dine out especially when its half price. Its great for business use as well as family and dining with friends. My Wife uses it at least twice a month when lunching with friends. Membership is great value for money. If you eat out in Colchester well worth joining.

This is my 3rd year of membership with Steve's Smartercard book and I have saved a small fortune in that time. Colchester Connected regularly features Steve at it's events as we feel it gives extra value to our attendees. I would recommend Steve and the Smartercard membership to anyone who enjoys eating out in quality restaurants and saving money at the same time.

Supporting local businesses is a priority for me and how much better can it get when local businesses actively encourage support by providing attractive incentives to spend money locally. Being introduced to Smartercard last year has certainly raised the profile of its contributors and makes me look at the book before deciding where to eat. It doesn't take long to recover the initial outlay and then savings of 50% really help when the bill arrives, a worthwhile investment when perhaps we are all being a little more careful.
