For those waiting to take advantage of Facebook Deals, the service is now available in Canada for iPhone. The service allows users to â€œCheck Inâ€ to receive discounts at various Canadian retailers.
Users must first check into Facebook Places and then search for a discount. An alternative is if you’re at a participating store, a message will be pushed to your device with a specific discount.
At this time, there are 11 companies that have signed up as participating members of Facebook Deals. For example, WIND Mobile and TELUS both have deals:
- Check into Facebook Places at 20 select Wind Mobile retail locations across Canada, and get a $20/m Infinite Laptop Plan â€“ unlimited Internet surfing and texting in any WIND Zone. Save $25/month. http://www.facebook.com/WINDmobile
- Check into Facebook Places at participating TELUS stores across Canada for a new account activation and receive an iPhone 3GS for $0 when signing a 3-year term contract. http://www.facebook.com/telus
That deal from TELUS is pretty good if you’re looking for an iPhone 3GS!
