Foursquare let us know that they’ve updated the BlackBerry app to include support for AmEX specials. The AmEX specials include deals such as “spend at least $5 at a local merchant in Austin, and get a $5 savings applied directly to your monthly statement.” To set up your Foursquare account for AmEX specials, do the following:

  • link your AmEx and foursquare accounts (you can do it here);
  • check in at a participating store and tap ‘load to card’ on the Special; and,
  • pay with your AmEx card.

The AmEX deals are an interesting start but the inherent problem with the program is getting more companies and stores to sign up will be a slow process. Not only will it take a while for the program to be available in other countries, but the value prop is a little lost if there’s only 1 store in your city that supports it.

Read more about the AmEX specials with foursquare on their blog.
