Smartphone Users: Big Foursquare Discounts in DFWIf you have an Iphone, Droid or other smartphone, you’d do well to install Foursquare, a location-based application designed to let your friends know where you are. When you go somewhere, you open the application, find your location, and “check in.” It’s fun – and, at certain stores, you can get significant discounts for using Foursquare. Here’s a list of the freebies and/or discounts currently associated with Foursquare. I didn’t include discounts exclusively for the “mayor” – the person with the most check-ins to a single place – because those aren’t available to everyone.

Deals from National Brands
Chili’s – check in, show the check in to your server, and get a free order of chips and salsa.
RaceTrac (certain locations) – check in and show the checkin to get a free French Toast Taquito or Monterey Jack Chicken Rollerbite.
American Eagle Outfitters and Aerie – get 15% off with your check-in.
Pizza Hut (certain locations) – the mayor of the store gets a free order of breadsticks w/large pizza purchase.
