Welcome to the PhatDeals Blog! I am Aaron Belsh, CoFounder and President of On behalf of the PhatDeals team- Daniel Rubin, Jon Hall and myself, it brings me great pleasure to introduce you to our little venture. I hope that over the next several months and years of our growth you’ll be with us every step of the way. Just think; 40 years from now you can say to your grandchildren, “I was with PhatDeals since the beginning. From the very first blog entry. Yes kids. Back in my day.. we had these things called ‘blogs’.”

The PhatDeals Blog, which we affectionately refer to around the office as The Phlog (or just Phlog for short,) is here to bring you, our beloved friends, family, customers and business partners with us along the journey through the wild world of starting a business right out of college. We will also cover the latest trends in coupons and small businesses. It is important now, more than ever, for us all to support our local businesses, the mom and pop shops in our communities.

Phlog will keep you up to date on the latest trends and shifts that we see happening around us. Friends, we live in difficult, yet extraordinarily exciting times. I feel there is no better time to start a company. Starting your own business can be a challenge in any economy, let alone one in recession. But we are confident in our ability as a team to meet this challenge head on. Won’t you join us?
