Facebook check-in now offers UK high street deals

Social networking giant Facebook has enabled its mobile phone Deals feature that works in conjunction with Facebook Places for use in the UK, which will now display offers from business all over the country.

Facebook Deals was launched in November in the USA, where FB users that ‘check-in’ to various locations from Facebook on a mobile device are shown deals and offers from local attractions and shops relating to that very location.

This has now been brought over to the UK, where offers can be used from the phone or even shared with friends on Facebook.

Today, Starbucks offer’s a free filter coffee, if checked in on Facebook Places, whilst on Valentine’s Day Debenhams will offer a free Benefit mascara & makeover.

People attending Usher’s tour this week at the O2 Arena will be able to check-in to Facebook Places, where they will be offered 20% off his album and a free remix from the official merchandise stand.

Over the next few weeks there will be Facebook Deals from Argos, Alton Towers Resort, Benetton, Mazda, O2, and YO! Sushi – with many more being planned.

Facebook Deals was also launched today in France, Germany, Italy and Spain with a similar set of deals being offered to the location of FB users.
