Location based service Gowalla has teamed up with singer Owl City for a new merchandise discount and giveaway program that involves Twitter and Facebook.
The company will provide one lucky checkin use with a VIP trip to see Owl City play at ACL Live on July 27 while other Gowalla users will receive pins to share on their Twitter and Facebook pages and the chance to win other merchandise.
Here is how to particpate according to Gowalla:
1. Install Gowalla on your phone, super easy: head over to http://gowalla.com on your iPhone, Android or Blackberry phone. Be sure to connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts to your Gowalla account!
2. The week of June 14th, when Owl City’s new record All Things Bright and Beautiful drops, check in at a record store or any other place that sells music, and when you do, include the words “@owlcity” and “#ATBAB” in your check-in message. Push it to Twitter or Facebook and you’ll get the limited edition Owl City Superfan pin, which you can post to your Facebook page for bragging rights!
3. When Owl City comes to your town between June 13 and July 17, check-in on Gowalla at the show (which will have it’s own special Owl City stamp!) for special credit to use at the mercy booth, and for an additional chance to score the VIP trip.
The grand prize winner will receive airfare for two, a stay at the W Hotel in Austin, two tickets to the Owl City show and free transportation for their entire stay.
To qualify users must share their checkins on Facebook or Twitter.
