Intern Craig Justifies His Constant Use of Facebook.

They all laughed when I wasted countless hours on Facebook. Well, I'm having the last laugh now because Facebook has finally paid off.

With Facebook's new "Places" function, you can check into places much like Foursquare. Until now, it was just the creepy cherry-on-top-of-a-sundae of privacy invasion. However, Facebook just announced a plethora of business partners that will now start offering Places specials.

Lucky for us, most of them have 34th Street locations.

American Eagle Outfitters, 34th Street between 5th & 6th
20% off a purchase

Chipotle, 34th Street between 8th & 9th, & 34th between 5th & 6th
Two entrees for the price of one

Gap Herald Square, 34th Street at Broadway
First 10,000 people to check in will receive a pair of blue jeans

H&M: 34th Street & 6th Avenue at Herald Square, & 34th & 7th Avenue
20% off a purchase

Macy's, 34th Street between Broadway & 7th Avenue

So, go ahead and let your friends know your exact coordinates. They'll be ever so jealous when you're wearing Lanvin <3 H&M at 20% off.
