Facebook Places: Retailers Give Freebies – Gap Jeans

By Gary Johnson - Nov 6, 2010

We briefly told you yesterday about a special deal that Gap was offering concerning the new Facebook Deals feature. The fashion retailer is planning to give away 10,000 pairs of jeans to anyone who checks in to the new Deals option on Facebook.

Maddy Rowe of Online Social Media, has written an article via Mashable going into more detail about the offer. Anyone who uses the new Deals feature and checks onto the men’s and women’s Gap US Retail location will be able to benefit from the offer.

Users are able to access special discounts by checking into various businesses via Facebook Places on their mobile device. After this has been done the person has to show a member of staff from a Gap store their check in. This then gives them a chance of winning a pair of jeans.

This followed a different offer the retailer ran back in the summer when they joined forces with Groupon. Customers were offered $50 worth of Gap items for $25, which led to 441,000 Groupons being sold beating expectations. At the same time Gap teamed up with Foursquare and gave people a $25 discount for checking in to one of their retail stores.
