3. Top deals: Favado has partnered with store experts who provide additional regional sales data to Favado. These experts pick their favorite “top deals” for the week to help shoppers save even more.

4.Personalized sales: Most people buy the same items week to week. Save your favorite products and brands to the “Faves” list to see stores offering sales on your preferred items.

5. Notifications: Hate missing a new sale? We’ll send you notifications of new sales for stores you select.

6. Coupon matching: .Ever bought something to realize later you had a coupon? Combining sales and coupons is the secret weapon for a lot of shoppers. Favado lets you know when additional savings are available and where to find them.
