Checking in with Google Latitude is more than just a way to show people how often you get out of the house. It’s now a way to reward loyal visitors of certain stores around the country. Google has teamed up with stores and restaurants for the next generation of Google Latitude on Android. By checking in often, new and better offers will become available.
The businesses that are a part of this initiative are Finish Line, Famous Footwear, Macy’s, Radio Shack, Arby’s and Quiznos to name a few. Each time you visit one of these establishments, you’ll earn status with them. Status is spread out across three tiers. The more you visit, the higher your status becomes. Checking in at Finish Line for example will help you gain the status level of “Bronze Medalist.” This status is good for $20 in savings when you spend $100 or more. Eventually you can be a “Gold Medalist” which offers $10 in savings with a $50 purchase.
Not all of the offers have such pricey requirements. Being of Rookie status at Arby’s is good enough for a small order of curly fries with any purchase except value menu items.
By visiting the Google Latitude site, you can see what business are accepting Latitude deals in your area. Make sure you have the latest version of Google Maps for Android or Google Latitude for iOS if you want to participate.
