You probably have one or two reactions when you hear a news story about Foursquare. You might be like “Huh? What are you talking about, you crazy person?” Or you may be like “Yep, I use it. Tell me more, good sir!”

For those of you in the latter camp, you won’t need too much explanation for this story. Starting today, if you become the mayor of a Starbucks location, they’ll give you a $1 off coupon. Not bad, eh? It’s a one time deal and only available until 6/28, but still pretty slick.

Now, if you were part of the former camp, you may need some of that interpreted for you. Foursquare is a mobile app that lets you “check in” at the various places you visit and earn points. The lucky individual with the most points at a certain location is the “mayor,” a title that means nothing other than that person spends too much time at Starbucks.
