TGI Friday – First Time Diners!

Foursquare users that are looking for an extra special treat when they check-in should look no further than their local T.G.I. Friday’s. Guests who check-in to selected Friday’s restaurants for the first time will be lucky enough to enjoy a delicious free Long Island Iced Tea – a Friday’s original creation.

Whether looking for dinner with friends, an after-work drink or a fun night out with the girls or guys; guests just need to show proof of their first Foursquare check-in on their mobile phone to a team member to claim their complementary welcome cocktail.

Darrell Wade, Commercial Director for T.G.I Friday’s UK said “We know there are lots of people using Foursquare, but there are very few restaurants or shops offering them rewards. Friday’s is all about uniting friends and celebrating and Foursquare is the perfect mobile vehicle for this. We wanted to encourage our guests to use Foursquare and what better way than to welcome them on their first check-in with a free cocktail!”

The participating Friday’s restaurants are:

•    London Covent Garden
•    Birmingham
•    Glasgow
•    Manchester
•    Kingston-upon-Thames
•    Cardiff
•    Leeds
•    Bristol
•    Gateshead

Foursquare is a mobile application that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore through peer-to-peer recommendation. It challenges users to experience new things, and rewards them for doing so. Foursquare lets users “check-in” to a place when they’re there, tell friends where they are and track the history of where they’ve been and who they’ve been there with. In August 2010, Foursquare had three million users with the platform expected to pass four million this week.

This latest offer is launched to coincide with T.G.I. Friday’s newly launched cocktail menu. To view the new cocktail list and bar snacks menu or to locate your nearest Friday’s restaurant visit
