November 21, 2013 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: It’s officially that time of year, when we’re gearing up to get those last few electrical gifts for friends and families or, more likely it’s the season of treating yourself to something good with a chunk of money off. This year, Black Friday is on November 29th, which isn’t too far away so, you’ve got to make sure you’re geared up. If this time of year is when you do a good chunk of your Christmas shopping then you’ll likely know that it’s not easy to find your way through the myriad of offers and reductions that are around every Black Friday. With BuyVia’s Deals app though, there’s no need to worry about finding that special item, or making sure you buy from a reputable source. This App helps you find hot deals on Black Friday, CyberMonday, as well as every other day of the year. You can tell the app exactly what sort of things you’re looking for, where you want to buy it from and then you’re kept up-to-date with new offers through notifications. Take a look at the quick video below and read on to see why this app can help you this Holiday.

How it Works: First of all, you’ll have to download the app from the Play Store and then follow a few setup steps.

BuyVia will take your preferences into account when displaying deals. The app itself is pretty straightforward but, it quickly tells you how to get around and explore its many features.

Opinion: Holiday deals can be the best time to pick up presents for your friends and family. Particularly those that are “techy” or like video games. Not just that but, it’s a great time of year to get something for yourself at a very attractive price. It’s hard and time consuming to find the best deals that are good for you though, as there’s often so many of them out there. Thanks to this app from BuyVia however, you can get easy access to great deals from the biggest retailers, which allows you to buy with confidence and make sure that not only are you getting a good deal but, that you’re also spending your money wisely. The app itself is full of features, delivering notifications or emails directly to your device, filtering local results and even letting you scan a barcode to find a better price elsewhere.
