Coca-Cola and HMSHost have partnered to run a Foursquare campaign through the end of summer, marking a rare appearance by the beverage giant on the geo-social app. Foursquare users who check in at HMSHost’s shopping malls, travel plazas, and airports will be eligible to win a year’s supply of Diet Coke. One of the prizes will be given away every 12 days.
Other prizes include a seven-day getaway at a Four Points hotel, as well as a $500 gas card for HMSHost-operated properties. The Bethesda, MD-based company has 5,200 locations around the country. When Foursquare users check in to a HMSHost-operated venue, they’ll get served a link to a mobile microsite, where they can enter the sweepstakes. Consumers can check in three times a day to increase their odds of winning.
AboutFoursquare.com first reported the campaign. The site, which is dedicated to tracking Foursquare activities, says it’s the first time Coca-Cola has run a campaign on the geo-social app in the U.S.
