Bryan K. Chavez was one of our most avid supporters from the beginning — always sharing great deals. In May 2011, Bryan officially joined the MHOTC family. He carries his purple coupon binder with pride everywhere he goes because he knows it’s as “good as gold.” His deal-seeking skills are so sharp that he regularly saves upwards of 75% on his grocery receipts! One of his passions is helping others save money. So, if a guy stops you in the grocery aisle and points out the better deal or offers to share a coupon, you’ve met Bryan. When he’s not clipping coupons or sniffing out the next great promotion, his professional background is in public relations & marketing for non-profit organizations, including the Colorado Marrow Donor Program, Bonfils Blood Center, Denver Health and Gill Foundation.
