Facebook has a new service on the horizon, one that will let users subscribe to updates about location-based deals.

The service, cleverly called "Deals," will soon give users updates about nearby promotions.

All Things Facebook calls it a heavy-handed tactic, but should prompt more local businesses to offer discounts and free gifts to those who check-in.

The first cities to get the new Deals app will be San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas, Austin and Atlanta.
