Don’t want to clip your own coupons? Let the Favado mobile savings app do it for you.
While you’re at it, enter to win the company’s Summer BBQ Savings sweepstakes. (More on that in a minute.)
Favado is a free app that tracks deals in more than 65,000 supermarkets and drugstores across the country. You make a shopping list right on your phone and then the app uses real-time data to match current deals, coupons and even “secret” sales (e.g., in-store promotions) with what you want to buy.
You’ll get automatic notifications when your favorite products go on sale at those stores – and the list includes markets like Whole Foods, Target, Trader Joe’s and Kmart along with merchants like Safeway and Walgreens.
“Want to save on groceries…easily? Get this app,” advises Emily Weinberger of Good Housekeeping magazine.
(I’d do it myself if not for the fact that I don’t have a smartphone.)
You can sign up for that sweepstakes until July 4, if you’re 18 or older and a legal resident of the United States. As noted above, the grand prize is a cool $2,500. Gas grills, charcoal grills, grilling tools and other backyard-entertainment-friendly prizes will also be awarded.
As always: If you win, please come back and brag about it.
