Max always tries to buy gas in New Jersey because it's cheaper than in NYC. He shops for fruit and vegetables at Fairway instead of the pricey supermarket. He registers domain names with GoDaddy because it costs 200 percent less than the competition. He gave up his land line for a cheaper VOIP line. And sometimes he even bids on second hand items at eBay when it's relevant. Max has spent the last 20 years managing content, traffic and monetization for internet companies and running large-scale consumer-focused websites. Prior to launching Cheapism.com, he served as the VP of marketing and monetization for Viewpoints Network and before that as general manager for ConsumerSearch.com, until it was acquired by The New York Times Company. Before his internet career, he worked as a journalist, which is why he loves content so much. Max holds an M.A. in Media Studies from The New School in New York City and a B.A. in World History from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He lives in New York City.

Felix has been developing custom website back ends for longer than he cares to remember. He has a degree in mathematics from the University of Chicago.

Danny is a Los Angeles-based editor and writer who covers food, travel, and more for Cheapism. He’s co-author of the guidebook, 100 Things to Do in Los Angeles Before You Die, 2nd edition (Reedy Press), and his work can also be found on Thrillist, Time Out, TravelZoo, KCET, and elsewhere. He grew up in Boston and received his B.A. in English from Vassar College. He’ll sing you an opera aria if you ask nicely. Danny has enjoyed DIY projects that save money since long before it was the cool thing to do. Whether he’s growing his own vegetables, pickling them or cooking elaborate dinners from scratch, he’s pretty convinced the food tastes better than spending a fortune on a night out. When he does go out, he has a knack for tracking down the best free events and concerts in town, along with finding delicious, cheap eats at holes-in-the-wall or food trucks. He’s also never met an impulse buy that he couldn’t pass up in favor of bargain hunting for a better deal.
Born with a wooden spoon in his mouth, Dan learned frugality by necessity and to this day, prides himself on his ability to find the hidden treasures lurking somewhere on the dusty shelves of a local thrift store. Prior to joining Cheapism.com, Dan worked for over a decade in the publishing industry for iconic brands like TV Guide, Esquire and Cosmopolitan before jumping headlong into the shark tank of digital commerce at sites like kgb.com and Offers.com When he’s not plugged into Google Analytics or sifting through ten thousand rows of keyword research, Dan enjoys spending time with his family enjoying the scenic Hudson Highlands in upstate NY, and coaching recreational soccer teams.
