Walmart's 9.4 million fans can click on the "My Local Walmart" tab and select their favorite stores. Fans then are directed to a page featuring with sale items and local event information. Customers also can report problems and ask questions.

“People on Facebook want to connect with the brands that they love,” said Carolyn Everson, vice president of global marketing solutions, Facebook. “Walmart’s new app offers enhanced local interaction at an unprecedented scale to their customers. Walmart continues to put people at the center of their marketing, in this case by bringing relationships to life locally," according to the press release.

Over time, Walmart hopes to personalize deals and offers based on what its fans "like" on Facebook.

gap-jeans.jpg

Gap is giving away 10,000 pairs of free jeans or offering a 40 percent discount on Friday through a Facebook event.

From 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5, Gap is giving away the jeans through Facebook Places which is Facebook's answer to FourSquare. The cool thing about Places is that you can get great deals and offers from retailers.

So turn on the feature in Facebook (you know you haven't done it), check-in at the Gap, show an employee your check-in and you could score the free threads. If you don't get the jeans, they'll give you 40 percent off any regularly priced item. So far, ther are less than 5,000 attending the event, so I'd say if you do it, your chances of grabbing a freebie are pretty good.
