Foursquare And Groupon Team Up On Daily Deals

Foursquare is rapidly expanding its partnerships in the daily deal space. Starting today, Foursquare users will find Groupon’s daily and real-time deals in their apps.

Groupon and Foursquare will share revenues in an undisclosed split, Mashable reports. Groupon offers are live for users in the Chicago area and will roll out to the rest of the U.S. and Canada by Sunday. They’re not yet showing up in my (NYC-based) app.

A Foursquare/Groupon partnership has been rumored for a couple of months. Foursquare announced partnerships with LivingSocial, Gilt City, Zozi, BuyWithMe and AT&T (NYSE: T) Interactive last month.

At BIA/Kelsey’s Deals 3D conference last week, Foursquare’s director of business development Tristan Walker said that Foursquare wants to make daily deal redemption “completely seamless, frictionless and magical,” and the company recently teamed up with American Express to tie deals to credit card transactions.
