    CHICAGO, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- First there was fire, and then the wheel,
 and now the next giant leap in human evolution - discount space travel.
     To celebrate the renaming of DealsDuJour.com to BradsDeals.com, Brad
 Wilson, Founder of BradsDeals.com (http://www.bradsdeals.com), has secured for
 his website the world's first coupon to blast off into the final frontier.
     Any qualified, non-professional space traveler can receive up to $10,000
 or 10% (which ever is less) off any space flight offered by a private company,
 including http://www.spaceadventures.com/company/programs,
 http://www.virgingalactic.com/en/default.asp, and others.
     "I have always been fascinated by space travel, but until now, it was a
 little expensive," chuckled Wilson. "We are offering this out-of-this-world
 deal, not only to generate further excitement for space tourism, but also to
 help our loyal customers - who make no small plans - voyage into space."
     Since 2001, BradsDeals.com has saved consumers millions by securing great
 deals on quality products. As featured in the Wall Street Journal and other
 major media outlets, and with over 600 of the world's best-known retailers
 offering fabulous deals on his site, Wilson has emerged as a leading consumer
 advocate and authority on Internet spending trends.
     So why the name change?
     "With over one million shoppers visiting the site each month, and
 projected sales of fifty million this year, changing our name reflects how
 real human beings meticulously inspect and select each deal based upon its
 value to the consumer," commented Anton Diego, Vice President of Online
 Retailing. "Brad really likes to save people money - and he inspires us all to
 do the same every day - we think the new company name reflects that
 philosophy."
     Through partnerships with over 600 top online retailers, BradsDeals.com
 secures both savings for its clients and new customers for its business
 partners, including Apple, Dell, Sharper Image, Office Depot, Petco, Target,
 Amazon.com, Buy.com, HP.com, Overstock.com and many, many others.
