Foursquare & American Express Specials Rolled Out Nationwide

Today Foursquare announced that their Austin-based SXSW test with American Express is going national.  The initial Austin-based partnership between Foursquare and American Express gave significant discounts to users who made purchases at local merchants using their Foursquare account tied to an AMEX card.  Many of the initial tests were very lucrative for the user checking in; a $5 off of a $5 spend being the most popular discount.  The program received rave reviews and was planned to roll out to more cities.

The news today came along with some great discounts for both national companies and local NYC restaurants.  Some of the notable specials include:

The program works by refunding users with a statement credit when a successful purchase has been made.  In order to receive these deals, sync your accounts on the official American Express Foursquare sync page and look for check-in specials around your area!
