    Social Rewards Website:

    New program lets users earn deals for tweeting and posting to Facebook.

    If you are a socially savvy business traveler like Shaun Koiner, the first thing you do when you land is scan the e-mails you received while in transit, check-in on Facebook and Foursquare as you deplane, and look for breaking news on Twitter as you ride to your destination. "I check-in to keep a digital trail of where I've been and to stay socially connected," says Koiner, director of digital marketing for Sporting News. "Use of, and keeping up-to-date on social platforms is an integral part of my job." He travels about five times a month between New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and the editorial headquarters for Sporting News in Charlotte, North Carolina. Koiner is the type of business traveler who could benefit from Social Rewards.

    Social Rewards is a loyalty-marketing program that rewards points to users for tweeting and posting to Facebook about the brands they like. A user can earn five points for a tweet and as much as 250 points if their social-media postings lead to room bookings. "We tap in to a brands existing loyalty program or create custom loyalty programs like the one we did for Luxor [casino in Las Vegas]," says Joseph Morin, co-founder and CEO of Social Rewards.
