Tips for Winning Angry Birds & DealDash, Plus Angry Birds Auctions!

Do you know someone who loves Angry Birds, so much they go to sleep playing the famously addictive game?
Launched in December of 2009, AngryBirds has since become the highest downloaded freemium game of all time, and is now offered for gaming consoles and PC.  If you’re not familiar with Angry Birds you really should give it a try. The game involves using a sling slot to propel small birds with bad attitudes (hence the “angry” in the Angry Birds name) at glass and timber houses to attack green pigs.
Watch this Angry Birds Go! game trailer to learn more:

You can download the Angry Birds Go! game over at http://go.angrybirds.com/ and play right now for free.
Angry Birds has gained so much popularity that its founder, Finnish Rovio has since released  various versions of the game: Angry Birds Space, Star Wars, Friends, Stella, Go! and Epic
If you or someone you know is a diehard fan of the game you won’t want to miss DealDash’s wide selection of Angry Birds games and licensed items. 
There’s an Angry Birds Card Game, Kids Hooded and regular Bath Towels, Bedding Sets, Mattel and Hasbro branded games, games for the Wii U, Playstation PS4, Xbox One and more.
Check out all of the upcoming Angry Birds Auction Deals over at DealDash.com.
If you already play Angry Birds in bed, you might just start dreaming about the game with these comforters and twin size sheet sets.
Tips for Playing Angry Birds, these tips can also be applied to bidding on DealDash!
1: Make sure you have time to play as this could be time consuming.
2: Know your birds. Know the personality of each bird. For instance, when you tap the screen while a yellow bird is still in the air you can accelerate his speed. Black Birds can be used to smash through concrete and hard structures.
3. Use different angles when trying to crash a structure, or in bidding, use a different strategy! 
4. Observe and Remember – Were you successful crashing a building or knocking out pigs with a particular way you were pointing your slingslot? Remember how you did it and repeat. Were you successful bidding by “throttling,” (placing a bid as soon as an opponent bids) or by “waiting in the weeds?” Remember what you did to win and try it again in another auction!
5. Have Fun
In playing and bidding, be sure to have fun! Don’t stress out if you don’t win. Use buy-it now if you have spent a lot of money in bids and lost, that way you can reclaim your bids and get the item at the retail price. If you lose, try again! Just take it easy and don’t stress!

Why Choose DealDash Over Other Penny Auctions?

why-choose-dealdash
DealDash is not the only online entertainment, “penny auction” online running auctions. Since penny auctions launched in the USA in 2008 there have been hundreds of different sites that have come and gone. DealDash has proven that they aren’t going away anytime soon like these fly-by-night penny auction sites, so what sets it apart and why should you choose DealDash.com over all others?
Well, let me tell you…
1.  DealDash’s Proven Track Record 
2. Sustainable – User Friendly Features
3. Fast Shipping
4. Huge Variety of Items
5. Excellent Customer Service
6. Bidder-conscious: No- jumpers, and no “stamping” auctions are allowed, unique bidder stats
7. Frequency of items

DealDash has a proven track record. Since 2009, DealDash has consisently shipped and sold thousands of penny auction wins. They’re an established company with millions of dollars invested to keep providing a consistent service with chances to obtain everything you’d want for less than retail
DealDash is one of the few progressive players in the entertainment auction space. Since launching, they have done many things to improve the customer experience and to make bidding sustainable. DealDash’s Buy it Now option has allowed bidders to save money by getting 100% of bids refunded back into their bidding accounts by opting to buy an item at the stated retail price.
All items, either won in DealDash’s auctions or purchased with buy it now, are shipped quickly shortly after purchase.
Huge product variety – The variety of items offered by DealDash is HUGE. And there really are items that would appeal to everyone.

No stamping or jumping allowed in DealDash’s auctions. Bids aren’t even accepted until the auction countdown clock is at 10 seconds or less. All auctions are “no jumper” auctions meaning if you see “No New Bidders” stamped over an item,  no one can come in late and bid after $5.00 if they haven’t already placed bids in the auction before the $5.00 auction price.
DealDash shows you more info on each bidder than other similar auction sites. When bidding info is displayed under each user’s name like when they joined and where they’re at as far as how close they are to their win limit. Each user can select an avatar and status message to personalize the bidding experience. Not only is there a wide variety of items, auctions run around the clock.
DealDash cares about their customers and it shows. They frequently call and e-mail users and ask for feedback on what they can do to provide an even better experience.

Surprising Things Most People Get Wrong About DealDash

Wrong Way SignIt’s easy to be skeptical about an online business, especially if the business is a pay-per bid auction site. The very first question that comes to mind when I find a penny auction site, especially if the site offers a lot of items, is the site’s integrity and legitimacy. It’s good to be a skeptic and it’s very important to be alert and ask questions especially when it’s about a business that you’re considering giving your hard-earned money to.   With that in mind, there are a few surprising things that most people get wrong about DealDash.
1. The first false notion would be that DealDash is not a real company. 
While DealDash doesn’t operate live (in person) auctions, nor do they have brick and mortar storefront, this does not mean that DealDash is not a real business. DealDash is a real company. In fact, DealDash was one of the first businesses of its kind. Back in February of 2009 when penny auctions were in their infancy, DealDash launched first as BidRay, then later re-branded with their current, and much more catchy name: DealDash
. DealDash was founded by successful entrepreneur William Wolfram in Finland. While DealDash was originally based, and founded in Finland, today it operates in the US with offices in NYC and Minneapolis, Minnesota.  William had experience in online marketing and wanted to take the knowledge he learned, his interest in game mechanics and discount shopping and offer a way to make shopping fun.
In 2013, DealDash reported having nearly 1 million users, 67 employees and $44 million in revenue in 2012 and has completed multiple rounds of funding to make what you see today a reality.
DealDash now operates hundreds of auctions each day and currently partners with Walmart who offers fulfillment of all auction and buy-it now items.
DealDash is a corporation registered with the NYS Department of State since February of 2012.

2. The products are not real.
Again, this claim cannot be further from the truth. Not only are the auction items real, the buy it now options are real and if you want to test it out I’d say buy an item that you need/want by selecting the buy it now option and let us know when you receive it. Because you will.
3. Real people don’t really win.
Barbara Sellers, author Melody Beattie,  and Roseanna Heffernan are among many loyal DealDash customers, they even flew out and volunteered to be apart of the current DealDash commercial that you may have seen on TV. Check it out:

The DealDash Guarantee

6 Days and 6 Ways to Get Ready for Spring – Cleaning!

Spring will be here in 6 days! Do you know what that means? It’s time to get out the cleaning supplies, mops, brooms and dustpans, scrub brushes and get to work! I know, it’s boring and hard work, but here are 6 ways to get ready for Spring while the snow is still on the ground and the warm weather on the horizon.  
1. Music, Good Music
I was listening to the radio this morning and a girl called in asking for a song to clean to. My question was  – Why doesn’t she just use Spotify? Check out this fun Spring Cleaning Playlist: Ultimate Cleaning Playlist.
2. A quick snack
Grab an orange, energy drink, coffee, chocolate ;), something to sustain you.
3. Supplies – A phone to call a maid ok, no.. Don’t call a maid, because you really can clean yourself. You don’t want a stranger looking at your dirty underwear, do you? Clean up your own mess… A few very important supplies that you must get before you start.
-Garbage bags
-Mop, Broom, Dustpan (
How about this great bucket and mop set from DealDash!
cleaning-dealdash

O-Cedar Easy Wring Spin Mop & Bucket System – Buy it now price $43.
Plus, right now on DealDash, in honor of St. Patty’s Day the final end price is free if you win this or any other item through Monday!)
-Cleaning cloths/ sponges
-A good vacuum – A Dyson Vacuum auction found on DealDash: dyson
-All-purpose cleaning supplies, window cleaner, floor cleaner.

My favorite cleaning supplies come from the Method line of products found at Target. Safe to use around babies and pets. Method cleaning products not only work well and smell delicious – they look really cool on the counter too. Really. Take a look!

4. 3 Boxes – 1 Room
Pick one room and stick to that room until it’s clean. Start out by taking a box or basket and picking up everything that doesn’t belong in that room, put it in the box to put where it goes later. Next, get a box or bag that you can use to put in anything you no longer have a use for and donate it to a local Salvation Army or Goodwill.  Grab a garbage bag and box for recycling and pick up any trash or recyclables. Put everything away where it goes. Next, clean all of the dirty surfaces and floors.
5. Move on to another room – repeat step 4. 
6. Celebrate your newly cleaned home by going out to dinner with gift cards won on DealDash!
Darden Restaurants, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s, Panera Bread, Texas Roadhouse and Applebee’s are among the many gift cards that DealDash auctions daily!
 
 
 
 
 
 

5 Characteristics of Bidders and How You Can Benefit

Are you looking for a technique or a strategy to help you win auctions on DealDash? Each bidder has their own bidding style that they like to use when bidding to win penny auctions and you can learn quite a bit from knowing about and watching each one. Which bidder are you?
The Powerbidder
The powerbidder is a very aggressive bidder. This guy, or lady, chooses an intimidating username and will bid to win, every single time.  Aggressive bidders are known to place bids as soon as an opposing bidder places a bid over them. They do this to cancel out other user’s bids to try to scare, or confuse everyone else so that they win. The powerbidder bids to win and will spend over the retail cost for an item just to win and show others they went all in to win. Watch out: the powerbidder won’t blink an eye at the thought of placing thousands of bids to win one item.
The Conservative Bidder
The conservative bidder will wait until the very last second on the auction clock before placing a bid.  This bidder will sit back and watch the auction progress for quite some time before placing a lot of bids.
The Early Bird
The early bird bidder bids early in the morning – DealDash’s morning auctions start at 7 am CST.
The Newbie
The new “newbie” bidder often just randomly bids on items trying to win anything, but doesn’t have a laser focus like the conservative or power bidder. You may even see a newbie bidder bidding on more than one auction at the same time. This isn’t always a wise idea because you could easily become distracted, your computer could freeze up and crash.
The Night Owl
The night owl loves to bid in the middle of the night when other bidders are sleeping. They’ll bid on anything from gift cards to sports memorabilia, furniture, household gear, or gift cards
The Bid Collector
The bid collector  stockpiles bids by winning tons of bid pack auctions. Try to keep track of these guys – you can look at their past wins and see all of the bid pack wins they’ve accumulated. So next time you are going to bid and you see that “bidcollectorX” (not a real user on DealDash), starts bidding against you, you will know that they may not back out too easily.
