New grocery shopping app promises to help you save money

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

A new smartphone app claims it can help you find the best deals in your neighborhood. The name of the free app is called Favado and the idea is to have grocery store ads in the palm of your hand before you head to the store.

The app has the data of every single sale item from drug stores and grocery stores in your area, so consumers can make the best choice. It also contains a product search engine.

"Let's say I am looking for milk," said Super Saver Tiffany Ivanovsky. "I can type in milk and it will pull up the price of milk at every store this week. So I know what store to go to before I even leave my house that's going to have the best deal on that."

Another one of the app's key features is the top deals tab from each store you are searching. The app will also organize your grocery list by store and sales and match coupons with those items. It also alerts you to price drops.

"The key to get the best possible prices is to combine coupons with a sale item," Ivanovsky said. "But remember, you have to physically either print the coupons before you get to the store or bring that insert into the store to get the best deal."

Ivanovsky warns the coupon feature can be complicated, but if you email your list to a desktop computer, you can then print those coupons.

The free app Favado is available for iPhone and certain Android devices.
