If you are as devoted to Foursquare as your daily cup of coffee from Starbucks, you might want to get in on a promo the two companies have teamed up for in honor of the coffee spot's 40th anniversary. Starbucks will be awarding $40 gift cards at random to customers who follow the brand on Foursquare, and check into a location today.

Mashable explains the 'bucks has 500 of the cards to give away, and that 4sq users will unlock the "Starbucks Tribute" badge to qualify.

The promo ends on March 12, and winners will be selected on March 16. To enter without checking in, customers can "enter the drawing via e-mail by sending a note with the subject line “Starbucks Foursquare Entry Submission” to foursquare@starbucks.com." Read all the fine print here.
