    Google Latitude, the search giant's location-sharing mobile app, is launching checkin offers nationwide, giving users the ability to unlock discounts with a handful of launch partners.

    Much like Foursquare and Facebook, Latitude now reveals different offers if a user checks in to locations hosting a Latitude deal.

    However, Google adds a twist to the traditional checkin offer with its "status" system. Offers such as 20% off at American Eagle Outfitters can only be unlocked with statuses such as Regular, VIP or Guru, although these titles are customizable by Google's partners. They are acquired by checking in to a specific place multiple times.

    Google's initial list of partners includes Arby's, Macy's, RadioShack, Finish Line, Famous Footwear, Great Clips, Naturalizer, Tasti D-Lite, Quiznos, Wireless Zone, Cellairis, PostNet and American Eagle Outfitters.
