Greenwich unlocks Swarm Badge at 2nd Cebu 4sqDay

2013/05/04

The 2nd Cebu Foursquare Day at Greenwich (Ayala Center Cebu) last April 17, 2013  (Wed) was quite a SUCCESS! Ideally, this should have been an April 16 (four squared) event. But since the Western world celebrated a bit later, it was delayed. BAD DECISION, since it took the fun out of unlocking the 4sqDay2013 badge, which unlocks only on the 16th!

Still, over 40 folks came to celebrate and claim official Foursquare swag. Jumpers also checked-in to help unlock a Swarm badge.

THANKS to generous host and sponsor Greenwich, attendees were treated to FREE pizza, pasta, and drinks. AND of course, blue water bottles from Foursquare!

There was no program for the day, just a simple meetup with old and new friends and super-friends.

As it stands, there is no official Cebu Foursquare community (with officers, etc). However, there is a Foursquare Cebu FB Group that is intended for Cebu-based SuperUsers, wanna-be-SuperUsers, and active Foursquare users who want to clean up Cebu. There is also a Foursquare Cebu FB fan page with pictures and status updates of Cebu Foursquare Day events.

This event couldn’t have been successful without the help of co-organizers @jerminix and @karissayu. So PROPS to these awesome guys… and to Greenwich and staff!

BY THE WAY, anybody is welcome to organize the next Cebu Foursquare Day event, or even just a Swarm event. Cebu still yet has to unlock the Super Swarm (250 check-ins) badge! Think you’d be part of that history? CHECK-IN NOW!


Decode Van Heusen QR Code, and Get a FREE Wallet

2012/06/17

It’s Father’s Day, and what a better way for Van Heusen (Ayala Center Cebu) to share the love by giving out FREE wallets. These 3-fold leather wallets could possibly be synthetic… But HEY, it’s FREE, and it’s Van Heusen! Now, that’s CLASSY.

All you have to do is to decode this QR code on the cashier’s table:

Not cool enough to have QR Code Scanner on your phone? If you’re on Android, download Barcode Scanner by ZXing Team, and scan the code above. You’ll get an awesome FREEBIE. Almost.

Of course, you need to be at the Van Heusen shop to claim your wallet. Last I checked, there were still 3 people (including me) who claimed the FREEBIE. This PROMO is good for TODAY only. So go, and claim yours NOW!

AND if you’re on a spending spree, you might also want to check out their polo shirts. Some of them have QR Codes too, like this one:

What will this get you? Why, a FREE Van Heusen undershirt. Cool.

Van Heusen is probably one of the first few establishments to use QR Codes as part of their Marketing strategies. Now, let’s see which other shops will follow suit. On a side note, Van Heusen gets minus points from me for NOT USING Foursquare. *grin*
