Deals from Local Businesses Come to Facebook Places

Facebook today launches “Deals” that local businesses will offer you when you check in to their place on Facebook. Now with Deals, you also can see what offers are nearby and share those deals with your friends.

To finding a deal, on touch.facebook.com or latest version of Facebook for iPhone, touch “Places” and then touch “Check In.” Nearby Places with deals have a yellow icon:

Facebook deal - 1

When you touch the Place, you can view the deal and check in to claim it:

Then, just show your phone to the cashier to get your gift or discount:

You’ll see a few different types of Deals: individual deals for a discount, free merchandise or other reward; friend deals where you and your friends claim an offer together; loyalty deals for being a frequent visitor to a place; and charity deals where businesses pledge to donate to a cause when you check in.

In addition, Places has been updated to include a starred friends list, making it even faster and easier to tag friends with whom you frequently check-in–no more searching and scrolling.

Many other businesses are already planning deals in the coming weeks for their U.S. Places.
