do you foursquare?

May 25, 2010

you probably already know what foursquare is. you’re probably the mayor of your favorite bar and check in with every cup of joe you gulp down. if you don’t know what this mayor talk is let me fill you in. foursquare is a smart phone service for letting your friends know where you are and figuring out where they are. once you start using it you start collecting points, prize badges, and even deals at certain foursquare partnered businesses (more on this later.)

now you’re probably one of two people. the first being the avid user who gets hooked after the first check in. you have the ‘super mayor’ badge proving that you hold down ten different mayorships, and you land on the top of the leader board every week for users in seattle. or you might be the total opposite who thinks its pointless, annoying, and are sketched out by the idea of everyone knowing where you are at all times. what do you guys think, do you love it or hate it?

so back to the 4s freebies. many businesses are teaming up with the location based social networking site to offer perks for users who check in or become mayor of their establishment. here are a few places here on the hill (or near by) that we found who will hook y’all up:

@ the living room: 20% off your drink with every check in on foursquare.
@ moe bar: show the bartender you’ve checked in to moe bar on foursquare, and your first drink is happy hour priced!
@ 15th ave coffee & tea: show us that you’ve checked in with foursquare and get $1 macchiatos before 4pm and $2 off beer and wine after 4pm. the mayor gets a free pastry!
@ twilight exit: get half off your first order of an appetizer when you become mayor!
@ starbucks – capitol hill: as mayor of this store, enjoy $1 off a new however-you-want-it frappuccino blended beverage. any size, any flavor.

do you guys know of any other cap hill spots offering special foursquare offers? let us know in the comments!
