To obtain Yelp badges, simply use the Yelp mobile application to check in and complete various chores. You need a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone, a reliable Internet connection and the Yelp mobile application. More check-in usage results in additional badges.
- Install Yelp mobile application
Pull up the application store on any mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone, and search for the Yelp mobile application. Select the application, and click "install."
- Use the "check-in" feature
Open the Yelp! mobile application and click "check-in." The application presents a list of nearby businesses to check in to. Once you check-in for the first time at a business, you will receive the Yelp Rookie badge.
- Write a review
Using the check-in feature, check in to a business and then write a review. Upon completing these two tasks, you will receive the True Yelper badge.
- Keep reviewing
Follow the sequence of checking in and immediately reviewing for 20 businesses in one week. Successfully completing this task awards you the Pro badge.
- Keep checking in
Acquiring the Master badge requires over 200 total check-ins. Make a habit of checking in to every business you frequent, from grocery stores to coffee shops to banks.
