Kick start, its easy to finding deals near by you. On touch.facebook.com/ or the latest version of Facebook for iPhone, touch Places and then touch Check In. Nearby Places with deals have a yellow icon:


When you touch the place, you can see the offer or deal in that place and you can check in to claim it.

Once you check in, then go to the place and show your phone the cashier to claim your deal or offer.
