Canadian Facebook Check In Marketing – Facebook launches coupon ‘check-in’ app for Canada –

Facebook has launched a new feature in Canada that allows mobile users to claim discounts through smartphones by “checking in” while they are shopping at certain stores.

AMC Theatres, Chapters Indigo, H&M, Joe Fresh and Telus are among the companies that have signed up for the beta launch of Facebook Deals, which is now active.

If users are at a store offering a deal, they can use their phone to “check-in” through an app or Facebook’s website, and then show a cashier an onscreen coupon to get the discount.
