Four Square & Wish List!

I'm very excited to announce the start of Wish List's Four Square contest! I think this is probably one of the most exciting projects I've worked on so far. This is such a new and innovative way to use this technology and I can't wait to see the results!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Four Square : It is a geolocation game, your phone is able to read where you are and give you a list of possible places to "check in" depending on your location. Once you check in you will be able to see a list of friends who have also been there and their tips - Check in the most at any one location and become a Mayor! What is really exciting about Four Square is it is a social media platform that works so well with brands and companies to be able to give back to their loyal following. Large establishments like Starbucks have began to utilize Four Square, but now even your favorite local boutique can recognize your loyalty!

Starting today - July 31, 2010 shop at any of the 3 Wish List locations and "check-in". Whoever holds the Wish List "Mayor-ship" by the end of July will receive a $100 Wish List gift certificate! It is just that easy. For those of you who don't have a Four Square account be sure to create one and add the app to your phone.
