Brad Wilson started buying and selling textbooks from his campus dorm room. Brad's friends were thrilled, and Brad was inspired to help his friends and family save money on other purchases. Brad discovered a passion for chasing deals, and took a semester off to learn how to build a website so he could share his favorite deals with more people. Brad's business has grown beyond his dorm room, but Brad's original vision holds true today: Brad and his team will not post any deals that they would not use themselves.
BradsDeals.com is the largest editorial-driven deal site in the world, with more than 12 million email subscribers. Featuring the best deals and more than 15,000 coupons for over 4,000 retailers, Brad's Deals attracts more than five million new visitors every month. Brad and his team of editors scour the web every day, 365 days a year, looking for the best combinations
of sale prices, coupons, rebates, and store rewards.
In 2014 Brad's Deals was listed on the Forbes list of America's Most Promising Companies. Shop Smart, the publisher of Brad's Deals, was selected as both a Chicago and National "101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work for" in 2013. The Shop Smart portfolio includes Brad's Black Friday and CyberMonday2013.com (and ongoing years). Both sites are leading destinations for millions of consumers looking for holiday shopping tips and advice.
Brad Wilson is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Brad's Deals. Brad is a pioneering expert in the consumer savings space, having grown Brad’s Deals from a college hobby to an award-winning service used by millions of shoppers every month. He speaks regularly at industry conferences and in the media. The Wall Street Journal
says Brad is "part sleuth, market guru, designer and publisher."
Brad's passion for helping other people win by saving money inspired him to expand his efforts beyond his website.
In January 2013, Brad released the best-selling book Do More, Spend Less.
Do More, Spend Less is about erasing everything people have been led to believe about being a consumer, turning the tables on retailers, airlines, hotels, banks and credit cards and essentially every business that has
been winning the battle for their hard-earned cash.
"With more than 50 different real-world examples within retail, travel and personal finance that come from personal experience, I walk you through how to play and win at this consumer game yourself!" says Brad. "I've spilled all of my secrets and advice in Do More, Spend Less so that you and others can benefit from the things I've learned,
live life to the fullest, and save tons of time and money while doing so."
