DBS Bank has just launched the first regional Facebook Places and Check-in Deals campaign in Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Jakarta, Taipei).
- The campaign is open to anyone who owns a supported mobile device (Facebook App On iPhone/Android/Blackberry or Facebook Mobile through your mobile phone browsers).
- Users just have to visit the DBS Facebook Fan Page  to get started.
- Users checking in to “DBS Places” Facebook App  will be able to earn points and redeem merchant deals throughout the campaign.
- At the end of the campaign (5th September 2011), the highest point earner of each country will earn a 3 days 2 nights vacation of their destination (Singapore, Hong Kong, China, India, Indonesia or Taiwan) of choice.
It may sounds complicated at first (which is how I felt when I first read it) and hence I have put up a tutorial on how to participate in this campaign using Facebook App on iPhone.
- Step 1: Go to DBS Facebook Fan Page  and “Like” the page.
- Step 2: Go to “DBS Places” Facebook App  and allow the app to access your Facebook details like all other Facebook Apps.
- Step 3: Register your details like last 4 digits of your NRIC number and mobile numbers with DBS .
- Step 1: Launch Facebook App on iPhone
- Step 2: Tap On “Places”
- Step 3: Tap On “Check In”
- Step 4: Search For “DBS Places”
- Step 5: Select The “DBS Place” you want to check-in
- Step 6: Tap “Check In”
To see how much points you have accumulated and how many check-ins you made, you can go to https://apps.facebook.com/dbsplaces/  using your desktop’s browser. The statistics should be updated in real time.
