You already know that social media is currently one of the best ways to promote something. It is also one of the best ways to get a deal. By using some apps that are primarily for location-based “check-in” games, you can pull off a nice #hustle to score some freebies.
During our trip to New Orleans & Atlanta last week, I discovered some great local deals on Foursquare. Marriott must like their promos because I unlocked these 3 deals at the Renaissance Midtown Atlanta.
Awesome freebie for first-timers. This was taken care of upon checkout with a few clicks by the front desk. 2 days of WiFi were credited right on the folio. Savings: $29.90
Briza is the hotel’s restaurant so of course we ate dinner there and charge it to the room for the double dip. We ordered 2 delicious desserts and they were no where to be found on the bill. Savings: $15
This was at Rooftop 866, the bar/lounge also located at the Renaissance. Yup, this was also charged to the room! We only got one appetizer while we sipped our drinks fireside, but value is value. Savings: $4
I know that only one of them is unlocked, but that’s because I forgot to take screenshots at the time of unlock. Also, these are Foursquare screenshots but venues also promote specials on the Yelp app as well.
