Get even more discounts on Black Friday by 'checking in'

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX –Black Friday is known for two things: Huge crowds and deep discounts.

This year you can add a free gift card to that list and an extra discount by simply “checking in.”

On Friday people across the nation will be racing through malls and stores to get their hands on the best deals on the busiest shopping day of the year.

You can also get in on the discounts without ever leaving your house by “checking in” on websites such as Facebook Places, Foursquare and Gowalla.

If you visit the website on Friday you’ll see a $50 gift code to Amazon. If you are one of the first 3,000 people to “check in” on Facebook Places, Foursquare or Yelp, you get a 15% discount at Toys-R-Us.

You can receive 20% off at Radio Shack and 30% off at the Gap by checking in on Foursquare and H&M is offering 20% off to people who check in on Facebook Places.

Even Las Vegas is getting a piece of the Black Friday action. Guests at the Palms Casino and Resort can get an extra night for free.

Twenty people who check in at Foursquare will be randomly picked to receive a free $50 gift card to Sports Authority.

Also, Old Navy will be donating free phone calls to troops when 15,000 customers check in and North Face will donate $1 to the National Park Foundation for every check-in.
