Foursquare for BlackBerry updates to v1.9.97 - Now link your AmEx card to your account and save big!
Foursquare for BlackBerry has been updated to v1.9.97. With the update comes new features because of a recent partnership with American Express. Now the partnership is going national. Across the whole country, at select merchants, you can now check-in with foursquare, pay with your American Express card, and get big savings on your monthly statement.
It’s simple to use:
- link your AmEx and foursquare accounts (you can do it here);
- check in at a participating store and tap ‘load to card’ on the Special; and,
- pay with your AmEx card.
There’s no cutting out coupons or showing your phone to the cashier. The savings are automatically credited to your account within a few days.
Last March, we rolled out a small test
with American Express: link your AmEx and foursquare accounts, spend at least $5 at a local merchant in Austin, and get a $5 savings applied directly to your monthly statement. When we launched, the response was overwhelmingly
positive. So, after SxSW, we sat down with American Express to plot the future. Today, we’re happy to announce that the partnership is going national. Across the whole country, at select merchants, you can now check-in with foursquare, pay with your American Express card, and get big savings on your monthly statement.
We’re super excited to be kicking this off with amazing Specials at two nationwide chains:
A bunch of local New York restaurants are also offering great Specials: Blue Smoke
, Union Square Café
(at the Whitney) and The Modern
. More businesses are going to be joining soon, and we’ll share those as they go live.
Redeeming these Specials is a totally effortless experience. If you’re a cardmember, link your accounts
now to start saving!
