Foursquare check-in specials are old news. Don't get me wrong, I love extra savings etc. that I often get from Foursquare specials, but I rarely see anything new or creative with their usage. Until today.
I had to stop at Walgreens over lunch to pick up a prescription and checked-in. I'm pretty terrible at remembering to check-in at places I run errands at, but today I remembered and was pleasantly surprised by the Foursquare special Walgreens was running.
My check-in just got someone needy a free flu shot voucher. Nice. Granted, there's no way to make sure that Walgreens follows through, but it still made me feel good about it. In a way it was nicer than getting something free, especially if it's something random I didn't really want in the first place.
Kudos Walgreens and a great new usage of the Foursquare Check-In Special!
