Facebook Deals, the check-in service that allows you to claim special offers in places that you've "checked-in" to, is now available to businesses in the UK, and will offer you deals when you check in to their Places on Facebook.
There are some great launch offers from Argos, Alton Towers, Benetton, Debenhams, Mazda, O2, Usher with O2 Arena, Starbucks, and YO! Sushi. Announced offers are mostly time limited, with Yo Sushi offering the first 1,000 check-ins free food and drink, as long as they've tagged a friend as being there with them.
Please note; these deals come from the businesses themselves, "not Facebook," so check with them at the location for more details, such as when they're running, how many offers are available, and whether a deal is just for you or also for your friends.
Finding deals near you is easy:
- Using your mobile browser on www.facebook.com or the latest version of the Facebook app, open "Places" and then click "Check In". A list of Nearby Places will appear and a yellow ticket will show which Places are offering deals.
- When you click on the Place, you can view the deal and check in to claim it.
- To redeem the deal, just show your phone screen and get your gift or discount.
