We may have said "Hasta la vista, baby" to the late fees, overpriced rentals, and the inconvenience of video stores, but most of us are still learning how to find our way through the ever-evolving world of online video streaming.
Happy New Year from Brad's Deals! We are proud to say that we saved you over $108,000,000 by posting over 40,000 deals in 2014. We put together a little video to show you what else we were up to this past year.
We've been asked the same question, over and over and over, from nearly every cashier we've encountered upon checkout: “Would you like to sign up for our rewards program today?” In a bit of classical conditioning that would impress even Pavlov, we've trained ourselves to turn down the clerk’s proposition, often before they can even finish reciting their oft-rehearsed sales pitch.

The average American consumes 60 hot dogs a year, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. Yes, that's a real organization.
What hot dogs may lack in nutritional value is made up for with cultural significance. In the power rankings of Americana, hot dogs rank somewhere between baseball and apple pie.

Ladies, we have a confession to make: Normally, we HATE swimwear shopping. Your run-of-the-mill body issues aside, we just can't help but wonder: How many variations on a few strips of lycra can there be?
