This year, you’ll be able to save a little money on your Super Bowl pizza order thanks to foursquare and American Express. When you check in to the nationwide Super Swarm (just like the one foursquare offered for last year’s Super Bowl), you’ll be eligible for $5 off at Pizza Hut when you pay for $10 worth of pizza with your American Express.
The process is the same as other American Express promotions: just open the special after you check in and tap “Load to Card” and then pay with your American Express. You’ll receive confirmation via foursquare within a few minutes of your card being charged and then a statement credit within a few business days.
In a new twist, foursquare will be providing a link to sync your card with American Express for those who haven’t previously synced up, making it easy for people who weren’t previously aware of the American Express specials to take advantage of the offer.
The beauty of these deals is that the guy at your local Pizza Hut doesn’t need to know anything (and he almost certainly won’tÂ know anything)Â or do anything for you to take advantage of the offer. You don’t have to clip a coupon and present it to your deliver driver. And best of all, it doesn’t exclude any other coupons you doÂ have and want to use. As long as you activate the special, pay with your American Express and spend more than $10, you’ll get the credit.
Pizza Hut has offered foursquare specials in the past, but pizza delivery is one of those categories that’s usually excluded from foursquare specials since you never really visit the store to check in.Â It’s another in a series of innovative ways American Express and foursquare have been able to work together to offer frictionless discounts.
