Do you use Foursquare or Facebook to check into locations?  (If you follow me on Twitter, you know I use Foursquare!)  Are you earning money for that check-in?  Did you know that you could be??


Just one example of a WeReward promotion


Yesterday, I heard a story on my local news that caught my attention.  There’s a company out there that will reward you for your check-in.  That company is WeReward (a little section of izea – the makers of Sponsored Tweets).

The app (which is available for Blackberry, Android, and iPhone) will tell you if any businesses are in the area, and what you need to do to collect the reward.  Some will ask you to pose with your product (like the picture) and others may just want you to take a picture of the store or inside the store.

Keep in mind that any picture you share becomes… well, public. Anything you share can be used by the company you’re visiting or WeReward.  (Do you think the people posing with their Mochi Frozen Yogurt knew that? 🙂 )

For more information, there’s a very informative post about WeReward in the NY Times.  The WeReward website isn’t that helpful, but there is a lot of info out there on the web.

Will you use WeReward?  Have you already been using it? I’d love to hear what you think!
