Like it or not, the heaviest shopping season of the year is looming over us already, and chances are you’ll need at least a little bit of help to get the best deals on the items at the top of your lists. BuyVia, a shopping and deal-tracking app, has recently expanded out of its core focus of finding the best tech deals to a range of different products including fashion and household goods. Users can find deals by telling the app what products they are most interested in and get e-mails or push notifications telling them about flash sales, price cuts or even sales on items they want at nearby stores. Signing up for a BuyVia account also enables you to synchronize your lists across devices, so you can move easily from PC to smartphone, to tablet and back. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
