This is an amazing deal just for checking in. We’ve seen discounts this high for mayors before, but never for a user’s first checkin. Running it as a one day only special is a great way to drive some traffic, especially as lots of users check in at malls during the back to school shopping season.
UPDATE (8/15): The Gap special has now been extended to August 22, matching the offer for Twitter and Facebook users. According to foursquare’s Director of Business Development, Tristan Walker:
Our friends at the GAP were so excited abt the 25% off deal yesterday they decided to extend for @foursquare users… for a while Go!
