Foursquare Mayors of Starbucks Can Now Get Discounts

Illustration for article titled Foursquare Mayors of Starbucks Can Now Get Discounts

Starting today, Foursquare Mayors of Starbucks can cash in their hard-earned virtual reputation in the form of a $1 coupon. Frappuccinos may taste awful but slightly cheaper Frappuccinos should be drunk proudly.


A dollar off a frapp ain't much but given the vast empire that is Starbucks, this precedent will likely develop into more partnerships with real benefits for Foursquare users. Foursquare has toiled in virtual trophies and awards before but nothing excites people more than real savings. So $1 off today can lead to free donuts at Dunkin' tomorrow and free nights at The Standard in a year. Or something like that. The Foursquare Mayor $1-off deal is a one-time use coupon available until 6/28. Be prepared to defend your mayorship. [Mashable]

So let me get this straight. If I go to a particular Starbucks location more than anyone else, I can get, one-time only, $1 dollar off a 4 dollar cup of coffee?

Wow. What a deal. Doesn't Starbucks have like 4,000 locations? If they give out a $1 dollar off coupon at each of their 4,000 locations that will cost them, by my calculations, 23 million dollars.

I'm sorry but I think this promotion by might just be a bit too ambitious.
