For those who don’t know, there’s an app called Foursquare whose primary function is to allow its users to “check in” at specific locations. Check in more often than all of your peers and you become “Mayor” of that location. Up until now, the only benefit of Mayorship were bragging rights, and possibly a discount of some sort at that particular location. Starbucks has just changed all that.
Until June 28th, Mayors of any Starbucks location will receive discounts at all Starbucks locations. It’s the first national discount utilizing the app, but almost certainly won’t be the last.
