Saving Money Tips

Another feature I really like – you’ll be able to pick your top stores that you like to shop at and compare prices on anything you need.  So for instance:

Let’s say I need cereal – based on all the stores I frequent, the Favado App will show me who’s running the best deal.  Bi-Lo?  CVS?  Walgreens?  Or maybe there’s a totally crazy deal going on at Dollar Tree that I never would’ve even thought to check!   This will save you lots of time.

You can watch a video about it below, but I suggest you sign up and check it out for yourself!
