Find&Save for iPhone Rings in the Holiday Shopping Season

Wanderful Media Helps Shoppers Discover Sales Nearby With Find&Save for iPhone

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) -  Wanderful Media® today announced the launch of Find&Save® for the iPhone, just in time for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season. The new iPhone app brings deals to shoppers on the go. It lets them find sales near their current location, browse through holiday circulars, access and update their shopping list and more. Find&Save is also available on FindnSave.com across all web and mobile browsers, as well as in the number one-ranked Find&Save for iPad app.

Mobile devices are increasingly important while shopping. The 2013 Find&Save Black Friday Shopping Survey found that two-thirds of shoppers will either use or would consider using their mobile device to help with Black Friday shopping -- primarily to check prices or use the geo-locator to find sales near them. They are also interested in using their mobile device to browse Black Friday circulars while on the go.

"From getting new sales alerts for your favorite stores based on your current location to accessing your shopping list for Thanksgiving dinner menu groceries or your daughter's holiday gifts -- Find&Save for iPhone brings advanced tools to the iPhone for today's smart shopper," said Ben T. Smith, IV, CEO of Wanderful Media. "Since shopping culture is more mobile and social than ever, Find&Save was reimagined for shoppers who are using technology to make everyday tasks easier. The new iPhone app is major milestone as we continue to build new apps and site features for both shoppers and retailers."

Find&Save features millions of items from more than 18,000 leading brands including, Nike, Revlon, Gap, Apple, Sony, Ray Ban, Coach and Disney. From Macy's to Target to Walgreens to Whole Foods and beyond, Find&Save includes over 375 retailers at more than 150,000 locations.

The new Find&Save for iPhone app includes the following features:

  • All sales nearby. Shoppers will receive a list of all nearby stores with their latest sales based on up-to-date retail circulars and their current location. The app provides a map view of stores in the area and details like phone number, address and directions.
  • Browse weekly ads. Whether they are browsing through the latest holiday circular while in the store, or checking out weekly ads of stores nearby, shoppers can browse sales across all retailers in one app.
  • One shopping list across all devices. Instead of carrying around a bundle of circulars, or having to multiple lists scattered around a purse, Find&Save for iPhone brings the shopping list to the back pocket. Shoppers can access, create and/or edit the same shopping list on FindnSave.com, Find&Save for iPad, and Find&Save for iPhone.
  • New sale alerts. Shoppers can follow their favorite stores and opt-in to get notified whenever there's a sale.
  • Share deals with friends. Whether shopping alone or with friends, the app comes in handy for shoppers who want to quickly share finds via text or email.
