Frugalo Organises Your Deals In One Place

Daily deal sites are in no short supply and even if you're only signed up for one or two, it can seem like your inbox is constantly flooded with bargains. Frugalo is a new web app that offers you a single location to view you deals, without clogging your inbox. You can also share deals easily with your friends.

Frugalo is a tool that scans your email account and collects all of your purchased daily deals in one place. You can see what they're for and when they expire in one view. Then, the service aggregates all of the daily deals available to you on services like Living Social and Groupon. You can quickly scroll through them, purchase any that you're interested in, or even suggest others to friends (via Facebook, of course) if you think they might be interested. That way, you can kill your subscriptions, use the site exclusively, and free your inbox from the morning deluge of daily deals.

Fair warning, however — because Frugalo is social, you have to log in using Facebook to sign up. Then, you have to grant the app access to your Gmail (or Google Apps) account so it can see what daily deals you've purchased and are sitting on (you can also send them in manually). That's a lot of permissions, any way you look at it. I tested the service and it doesn't do any posting on your behalf (although it asks you to share Frugalo with your Facebook friends once) and you can easily revoke its permissions in your Google account settings or Facebook app settings.
