Pop-up store lets you pay for clothes using your social network clout

OnePiece pop-up store in New York City

As nice as Klout’s perks can be, they’re infrequent and sometimes have arcane rules.

Wouldn’t it be better if you could simply translate your social networking status into cash? OnePiece’s pop-up store in New York City is letting you do just that. Swing by 577 Broadway no later than November 17th and the clothing shop will give you a $1 discount for every 500 followers you have across common social networks, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

While you’re capped at $500 (Hollywood A-listers need not apply), that’s more than enough to score some fresh threads for free. Yes, it’s a publicity grab – but it’s also a genuinely good deal if you’ve spent years cultivating an online following.
