LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Savings.com today announced the launch of Favado 2.0, a redesigned version of the grocery community savings app that helps shoppers discover more sales, from more stores, than any other service.
Favado 2.0 does the hard work for shoppers by eliminating the hours typically needed to research grocery sales and to clip coupons. The extensive sale and coupon data in Favado 2.0 is aggregated by grocery saving experts throughout the country, giving everyday shoppers the ability to save like the pros in a new, easy-to-use visual format. Favado can help consumers cut their grocery bill in half just by browsing the app for a few minutes before each shopping trip.
"With the technology available today, there is an enormous opportunity to make couponing and grocery savings more accessible to everyday people who want to save money but may not know where to begin," said Loren Bendele, President of Savings.com. "With Favado 2.0, we've reconsidered both the design and the content to empower all shoppers to save like the pros."
With more than 1.5 million downloads to date since it launched in October 2013, Favado has proven to be a breakthrough grocery savings tool.
New features in Favado 2.0 include:
- Crowdsourced Trending Sales: An app powered by real people, for real people, Favado 2.0 highlights Trending Sales, crowdsourced by shoppers to quickly showcase the best, and oftentimes, unadvertised sales.
- Simplified and Visual Interface: Now when consumers open Favado 2.0, they will see images of the best sale items currently available at their local grocery store that don't require coupons. More advanced settings for avid couponers still remain in the app, but they are hidden on the main screen so that casual users are not overwhelmed.
- Browse Instant Coupons: With Favado 2.0, users can start taking part in the new way to save with load-to-card coupons. With the click of a button, users can add these Instant Coupons to their store loyalty reward cards with no clipping or printing required.
The app aggregates more than 50,000 deals daily from more than 65,000 stores nationwide, including Target, Walmart, Whole Foods, CVS, Meijer and many more.
