Can't get enough shopping in your life? What about satisfying your competitive nature via copious check-ins on Foursquare? Luckily now we have the Mall Rat Badge and it's unlocking right now. All you have to do is check in at three unique venues categorized as a mall or five times at the same mall. Plus, for every 5 additional unique venues you check into, you will gain additional levels of this badge. [Badgeunlock]
