Favado-Blogger-300x250We’ve got some exciting news here at Deals in the Mitten!

We have recently signed up with a fabulous grocery savings app called Favado.  Before we tell you all about it, you’ll want to head over here to sign up – it’s completely FREE!

Favado tells you which stores have the best deals to help you decide which stores  you’ll want to shop at each week!  You can save even more by taking advantage of coupons, store credit and store promotions all accessible within Favado.  The goal is to get items for as little as possible, so matching the sale price with the available coupon gives you “double the discount.”

Favado is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.  You don’t have to create an account to view the deals, but you will need to create an account if you want to create a personalized shopping list.

Then simply choose your location and Favado will find your nearest stores.  Choose the stores you shop at, and the app will show you all the sale items at these stores.  The app will also indicate if there are coupons available with a $ sign below the product.  Click on the product and then the red arrow to see the available coupons. Create your shopping list and then email your list to yourself (or to friends) and print off the coupons on your computer!

AND, with the Favado Cloud Sync, you can also build your shopping list through the Favado grocery store deal lists from the Favado site and it will automatically sync with the Favado app on your smartphone or tablet!

Here’s how Favado Cloud Sync works:

  • Create a Favado account through this link.
  • Log in to your account online and then build your shopping list from the store deals on our blog.
  • Download Favado onto your smart phone or tablet and log in to your Favado account in the app.   (Note: You must use the same login credentials on your computer as you do on the mobile device app.  If you are not logged in at both places, the sync will not occur properly.)
  • Open the shopping list section in the Favado app and you’ll see that the list you built online shows up inside the app.

  • Trending Sales – LOVE this new feature!  Favado is an app that’s powered by people.  Their “Trending” view shows you the sales at your favorite store, sorted by the number of times they’ve been added to users’ shopping lists.  The best deals are at the top, saving you time and money!

Cell Phone Plan Price Comparison

Cell phone
Wondering what cell phone plan is the best? Do you find it impossible to line them up side by side even when on a mass retailer site online? 

I’ve put together the solution for you, a Cell Phone Plan Price Comparison!

But first, a few disclaimers:

  • This is for a base comparison only. Do not assume this information is complete, do not assume that these prices will be current forever. Be sure to read all terms and conditions when making your purchases.
  • All prices and numbers are accurate as of posting for ON NETWORK usage for the provider listed. Additional roaming charges may apply.
  • Prepaid services that are not a monthly service are not included at this time.
  • Not all services are offered in all areas.

After spending hours creating this cell phone plan price comparison, my suggestion for the best plan is Boost Mobile IF you are not a heavy data user. If you use a lot of data, a smartphone and lots of apps, a Sprint plan would be my suggestion. There is simply no speed guarantee on the Boost plans after you have used 2.5GB in a month.

See an offer for a free phone and don’t want to have to worry about the rebates? There are phone options at Best Buy to match and often BEAT the prices direct from the companies or your local cell phone store. Best Buy does not make you do the rebates to get the price. If it says $99.00 after $100 rebate for a phone anywhere else, you pay just $99.00 out the door at Best Buy. Start shopping here.

You can see more from each of the companies by clicking the company name:

I know these look small here, but if you click each image below, the cell phone plan price comparison document will open up larger to look at and can be printed from there as well. Do you receive public assistance? You may qualify for a free phone and free 250 minutes per month

We personally have had a Sprint plan for many years now and have been happy with it. We plan to continue to use them. On top of that, we are locked in at a rate plan that is $20 less than currently available because we have continued to be customers!
