In class on Friday, the creators of DealCatcher.com came to class to talk about how they started and what their company is all about. I thought it was very interesting because I had never heard of DealCatcher and enjoyed hearing about how their site works. The President and founder of the company, Dan Baxter, was actually a student of the University of Delaware and did not know his concept would be such a big hit. Baxter was only looking to help his family and friends save money and show them where to go to get the right discounts and find coupons that can be beneficial. Instead the site gets over 35,000 hits a day and increasing at a rapid pace. I will definitely check out the site on a more frequent basis and tell my family and friends about it. I think it is very helpful especially if you have a product in mind that you are looking to buy. You can put that product as a special keyword and DealCatcher will contact you when special promotions or discounts are available for the specific product you are searching for.
