    • 4sq In a Nutshell
      Foursquare lets users “check in” using mobile phones when they visit a place or business. Users can see who else has checked in at locations, review businesses and get suggestions for things to do nearby. The service also makes it easier for businesses to tailor offers to users based on their location.

      Check-in Specials: unlocked when a user checks in to your venue a certain number of times.("Foursquare says you've been here 10 times? That's a free drink for you!")
      Frequency-based Specials: are unlocked every X check-ins.("Foursquare users get 20% off any entree every 5th check-in!")
      Wildcard Specials: always unlocked, but your staff has to verify some extra conditions before awarding the Special.("Show us your foursquare Swarm badge and get a free drink!")
