Deals on @foursquare

In light of foursquare’s recent announcement detailing their 3400% growth in 2010 (also known as the Year of Suckage), I’ve decided to record the deals I see as I check in.

This is mostly to satisfy my intellectual curiosity as a marketing student, so stoppers-by might be bored. Googlers, if you’re looking for information about MAC’s Wonder Woman cosmetic line, here it is.

Among this weekend’s deals spotted on foursquare:

  • Buy one scoop, get one scoop free at Ben & Jerry’s.
  • 15% off next purchase at Aerie, American Eagle’s panty and bra shop.
  • Valentine’s Day Sale at Express: suit separates for her, BOGO 50% off; shirts and ties, BOGO $19.90. PLUS 30% off sweaters for him.
  • Get $10 off jeans $39.95 and up at H&M. Offer valid Feb. 10-21. Discount taken at register.
  • First-time check-ins can get $5 off any $25 purchase at Payless ShoeSource.

I’ll update the list as I see more offers.

Foursquare: 3400% growth in 2010

Foursquare’s 2010 was much better than mine.

The location-based mobile service saw an astonishing 3400% growth in the Year of Total Suckage.

That’s a lot of check-ins.

This terrific graphic breaks down the hot spots in travel, dining, art and music, while this blog post, wait. Never mind. The sad-bastard tech writer I was going to link to is just exactly that: a sad-bastard tech writer who doesn’t get Foursquare. Never mind.

Hat tip to @scottdbowers for the heads-up.
