The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:
Toys “R” Us, 11/25 — Join Our Scavenger Hunt! Grand Prize Winner Will Receive $1,500!
A new element to a few Black Friday messages this year was the promotion and rewarding of check-ins via Foursquare, Yelp and Facebook Places. Toys “R” Us entices shoppers to check in via any of those services with the promise of a “special offer.”
Sports Authority, 11/26 — Sports Authority - Black Friday Doorbuster Deals – All Day
Sports Authority brings the viral crowd behavior into the store by entering people who check in into a sweepstakes and then announcing winners over the PA in the store that they are in. Done well, that should encourage other store shoppers to also check in.
REI, 11/26 — REI Winter Sale Ends Monday
On a day that is the embodiment of consumerism, REI appealed to their shoppers’ philanthropic generosity to generate check-ins.
