I have often said thatFoursquare is a great social networking app, for those who like to share the places they eat and visit with their friends. However, the drawback has been that many hotels and restaurants on Foursquare have not offered incentives, besides allowing members to become the “mayor” of their establishment. That has changed recently, with new Foursquare deals from popular hotels and restaurants. McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants, for example, is offering a free bar food menu item with any beverage purchase, to customers who check in via Foursquare. And, the mayor of each of its restaurants can receive a free dinner!
Whist at Viceroy
Meanwhile, the Wingate by Wyndham hotel chain is offering Wyndham loyalty rewards points for guests who join Topquest and check in at any of its hotels. And, the Viceroy Santa Monica hotel in Santa Monica, Calif., is giving guests who check in via Foursquare at its Whist restaurant, 15 percent off their dinner. As a traveler and lover of eating out, I will be taking advantage of these new rewards, and I hope you will be too.
