Latitude Gurus Battle Foursquare Mayors

Google Latitude

Google Latitude users can now earn offers when they use the service to check-in at different venues.

Google Latitude will reward users who regularly check-in to particular venues with 'Regular', 'VIP', or 'Guru' status. Your status at a particular venue could also earn you rewards in the form of offers that the venue has created for particular status levels.

For example, a cafe may give their Regulars a discount on a cup of coffee. You can find places where check-in offers are available in Google Maps for Android search results and Place pages. This means that you can check your Android phone for nearby offers before deciding which venues to visit.

Check-in offers are being launched in Austin this week but Google has plans to expand the service. You can learn more at google.com/mobile/checkin.
