Check In at Starbucks
Location-based social networks are all the rage these days. After you tweet a witty thought on Twitter and update your Facebook with an equally witty (but separate) observation, let your friends know that you are at a Starbucks with Facebook Places or Foursquare. This week we have some fun announcements to let you know about.
We’re excited to be among one of the first companies to work with Facebook on their new Deals product. We’re collaborating with our friends at Conservation International to help save forests. For each check in on Facebook Places, we’ll donate $1, up to $75,000 to help protect 5,000 acres. All you have to do is stop by and check in!
Earlier this week we introduced Starbucks Check In. This is a new app that allows you to earnvirtual gifts to share with friends when you check into Starbucks on Facebook Places. Just for loading the app, we’ll give you a virtual Red Cup to share. The more you check in, the more virtual gifts you can earn to share. Check it out!
Of course, if you haven’t done so already, you can still earn a Barista Badge on Foursquare. Check in to five different Starbucks and you’ll get a badge and be the envy of all of your friends.
