American Express & Foursquare: Spend $10, Get $10 Promotion

Email  Print Print  

I only recently got an iPhone but one of my most often used apps is Foursquare. I don’t check into places because I want to become a mayor, I use it because it helps me remember where I’ve been and when. I check in whenever I go to my barber not because I want to be the mayor of the little barber shop, it helps me remember to go back on a regular basis (sometimes I don’t notice my hair getting longer than I like!). This is especially useful whenever I go away on travel and visit food places. For example, on a recent trip to Las Vegas, we ate at a great fusion Chinese-Mexican place. I had no idea what the name of it was but a brief check of Foursquare reminds me that it was called China Poblano (cool place!).

Anyway, so I check into a local sandwich shop, Bon Fresco, and I see that there’s a promotion for $10 off if I sync my American Express credit card. All I have to do is enter in my American Express credit card (if you’re concerned about entering it into Foursquare, you can do it at, spend at least $10 at the place, and you get a $10 statement credit. I bought a few sandwiches and I was credit two days later (shows up as “AMERICAN EXPRESS COMNEW YORK NY”). Can’t beat that!

Hopefully they do more of these!

    Is this still going on? This started two weeks on Dec 5. I got free gas at Arco, $10 off $10. 🙂

    Do you have to actually be at the location to “check in” on foursquare to enable these deals? Or can you just go to at home and type in a restaurant name? (And will that unlock the American Express deal?)

      Yes, You can check in at home, then make sure you go there within 24 hours. I checked in on my ipod at home a couple of weeks ago around midnight for a local independent market and went there next morning. Got the $10 credit within days
