Checking in on Foursquare can reap you big rewards -- from check-in deals to mayor specials, more and more businesses are offering discounts, coupons and free stuff to folks who check in when they walk in. Because I'm a shameless social media junkie, I've put together this comprehensive list of companies that offer Foursquare rewards, which I plan to keep updating as new Foursquare rewards programs are announced.To get it started, I've focused on some of the bigger hubs for social media, ranking Foursquare rewards in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as throwing in as many nationwide Foursquare deals as I could find. But, if there are specific rewards programs in your city, or if I forgot any, please feel free to throw them in the comments!
