About Brad and Brad's Deals

Brad’s Deals was founded on the principle that you should never have to pay full price. As a college student in 2001, Brad Wilson got sticker shock at his college’s bookstore and started helping fellow students find better prices online. He developed a following of deal-seekers, giving him the idea to start a company where he could continue to “evangelize frugality,” as he puts it. Brad learned to build a website and set up shop in his Chicago apartment, and soon after, Brad's Deals was born.

Smart financial decisions grew naturally out of Brad’s frugal philosophy. The company has been profitable from day one and never sought outside funding—probably one reason why Brad was selected by Forbes as one of America’s Most Promising CEOs under 35 in 2013. He has also appeared on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, and as a holiday shopping expert on CNN, and has written a book called Do More, Spend Less: The New Secrets of Living the Good Life for Less.
