$mart Card / Smart credit card

$mart Card

$MART CARD is a smart credit card that provides useful information to help users make conscious spending decisions. $MART CARD can be used as a regular credit card. However, with one push of a button on the card, it will show you how much money you have left from what you budgeted. With a glance at the card, users can easily get an idea of how much money they have left. On top of that, $MART CARD allows users to budget and track their spending by sorting all data into two categories: need and want. These categories not only simplified spending information, it also adds users input into their own spending.
