When you log-in to Facebook, you may notice one or more special offers waiting to be claimed. This isn’t a new kind of Facebook spam, but rather the result of Facebook Offers. Facebook Offers are being pushed out today as a way to drive more traffic to participating businesses and help users save money on products or services they may care about.The offers you see are going to be mostly determined by the Pages you’ve liked in the past. For example, if you like Nike’s Facebook page, you may see a Facebook Offer from Nike. You also may receive offers from Pages you aren’t following, but you may not see those as frequently.

Facebook Offers can be redeemed in ways similar to services such as Groupon or LivingSocial. After you accept an offer, you’ll be sent an email with details on how to redeem the offer. In most cases, simply taking that email into the business will be enough for them to honor it.
