The holiday shopping season kicks into high gear next week, which means many of us are about to experience some serious sticker shock. Between the holiday meals, office potlucks, supplies and festive decorations, we've already spent a FORTUNE -- and that's not even including the gifts!
The good news is that there's one easy way to cut back on the spending -- with hundreds of sales and discounts happening everyday at local grocery and drug stores, there's no reason to pay full price. Favado makes it easy to find these holiday deals to save you 50-70% on everything from eggnog, to stocking stuffers to New Year's party favors.
We're excited to be part of your holiday shopping season this year, although we're a bit curious about how you'll shop. To get a better idea, we've come up with a few questions that will tell us more about your shopping preferences. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts with us here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FavadoHolidaySurvey. As a thank you for sharing, one of you will win a $100 Gift Card that should hopefully make the sticker shock of holiday shopping a little less painful.

"Savings" Greetings on your Thanksgiving feast!!!
It's been a month since Favado hit the App and Google Play stores and we couldn't be more thrilled with how many people have started using it, and with the wonderful feedback that we've received from users.
We read every comment and frustration that comes to us and we are responding to these and making product improvements as quickly as we can!
Favado on iPhone Updates
The iOS version of the app launched without search capabilities and password recovery option, so we've made those 2 updates and pushed them out. (Be sure to check your updates list if you don't have it set to update automatically.)
Also, we've created an option for users to view "special sales" lists separately. For example, if your grocery store is running a special promotion that spans longer than 1 week, i.e. Kroger Mega Event Sale, those items will be listed separately with a date range of 2 weeks.
Favado on Android Updates
Because the Android version of Favado was developed first, it is slightly further along the product roadmap than the iOS version. In the most recent update, the "Best" sales tab will now show the top 20 sale items across your selected stores.
In addition, the "Sales Description" now appears in the item details and better explains how to get the rock bottom prices that the app lists.
We'll continue to announce as updates occur.
