Have you heard of Foursquare?

It is an app that you use on smart phones to "check in" to the various locations that you visit throughout the day. When you check in, you earn points and badges as a reward. You have friends online with you that compete to earn the most points for the week.

Each venue you check into gives you more points...When you visit a place for the first time you get bonus points. If you check into the same place more than anyone else you are named Mayor of that place.

Lots of retail stores and restaurants have jumped on this bandwagon and are now offering discounts and specials to their mayors. I am proud to say that I am the mayor of several places... Subway, Ingles, Lowe's, Office Max, AMRBC, and Mike's on Main in Hendersonville. I am a few more visits away from becoming the mayor of Target.

Some of the places that I have visited that have specials for those who check in are McCallister's Deli and American Eagle.

You can also leave a comment about the place you visit...Recommend food to eat, good servers to ask for, what is on sale, etc.

A lot of people give me grief about "checking in," but it's kinda fun and it is another way to keep you connect with your friends. If you have a smart phone, download it and add me soon!
