I started the BankDeals blog which eventually evolved into as a hobby to help people find the best deals at banks and credit unions. In addition to reports on deals, I also describe my experiences on opening accounts and dealing with the banks. Plus, I try to keep everyone updated on the important banking news relevant to savers.
