Foursquare Expands Credit Card Partnerships With Visa & MasterCard Integration

At the 2011 SXSW, Foursquare brokered a deal with American Express to offer special discounts to users who made purchases as specific locations using an AMEX card. This week Foursquare as partnered up with the two largest credit card providers, Visa & MasterCard to create a similar partnership. To kick it all of off, Foursquare also announced a major deal across all 6,500 Burger King locations.

BK_duoIn order to sync your Foursquare account with your credit card to redeem deals, simply head to the card connect within the settings section on Foursquare. Savings will then automatically occur in your monthly credit card statement.

Offers will also soon see more prominence according to AdAge:

In an effort to urge users to redeem more of these offers, Foursquare will also be making them more prominent within the app. Users will now be able to see in their profiles which cards they’ve synced to their account and all the savings they’ve had over time. And offers from a credit card company will be differentiated with their own symbol from other “specials” put out by nearby merchants.

AMEX users will still be able to see AMEX-only exclusives outside of the Visa/MasterCard partnership by visiting the website.

For more information see AdAge or the official Foursquare blog.
