Bike This Summer With DealDash!

kulana* The Kulana Tandem 26″ Bicycle goes on sale today on DealDash! (See below for more info)
Biking is pretty popular now in the US. Many cities have become more biker friendly by allowing initiatives such as bike rentals, bike paths and trails and even separate lanes of traffic in roadways.
Is your city bike friendly? According to The Travel Channel these 10 cities are the top 10 cycling cities in the US:

  • Boulder, CO  – Boulder boasts a bike-share program with 24-hour bike access stations.
  • Portland, OR – No other city has more cyclists per capita.
  • NYC offers the country’s largest bike share program with over 6k bikes and 330 rental stations. The Hudson River Greenway has 11 miles of bike and walking paths.
  • Minneapolis has the second largest number of bike commuters after Portland. With dedicated bike lanes and bike rental programs, Minnesotans love to biking (yes, year round even!)
  • Washington, DC offers 1,800 bikes in their bikeshare program.
  • Tucson, AZ has over 700 miles of designated bikeways.
  • Austin, TX has a bike zoo and the 6-mile long Lance Armstrong Bikeway,
  • Missoula, Montana – home to a wide range of mountain bike trails. Biking Big Sky Country would be lovely!
  • San Diego’s will soon have a  bike share program with over 1,800 bikes around the city.
  • Louisville, KY has a 100-mile trail system that’s really a bicycle superhighway.

If you’re in any one of these cities you’ll see that it’s become easier to gain access to a bicycle if you don’t have one, whether or not you’re in a bike friendly city you may want to own your own bike. DealDash has made that more of a reality for many people. The last few auctions for a USA Titan Punisher All-Terrain Bicycle have sold for as low as $0.45 to less than $2. Really! What a great deal!
Take a look: PleaseStopNow won this one for just $0.45!

By registering and trying DealDash you must understand that you likely to spend more money in bids than you may receive in items. This is posted right on DealDash’s site on the Terms of Use page. And it’s true, you may win, you may lose. But you need to go into bidding with this in mind and don’t get too carried away.

  • “Most customers using the site gain less in merchandise value measured in monetary value compared to the amount of money spent bidding to win auctions.”

See that one auction for, well, anything? 30 users may be bidding and  only one bidder will win. The odd aren’t calculable, because it’s not always up to odds, but  29 of those bidders will lose.

  • “Do not buy bids or spend money on the site if you cannot afford to lose the money.”

Just don’t do it.

  • “DealDash is constantly attempting to maintain fairness and balance in its auctions therefore some new users or users who have lost auctions may receive special promotions, access to special auctions and/or free bids through site features.”
  • “This is designed to maintain fair practice and helps balance and create a great auction experience for all users.”Bidding on penny auctions can be a lot of fun.
  • “DealDash is convinced that the entertainment value of participating in its auctions is valued and that paying a premium price for this entertainment value compared to shopping at the lowest priced retailer is fair.”

 

  • “We do however strive to give as much merchandise value back to our users as we possibly can while maintaining healthy gross margins.”
  • “Most customers will not win auctions and you are on average unlikely to save money using the Site.
  • “We recommend that you take advantage of the Buy it Now option as it will return all of your lost bids when used. Most customers who use the Buy it Now remain loyal to the Site far longer than those that do not. By using the Service you understand and agree to this statement.”

Definitely make use of the buy it now option. If, 1. you want the bids you spent back and 2. you want to buy the item at the stated buy it now price which is really pretty close to the fair market/going rate of the item from retailers such as Amazon.com.

Some bidders get stellar deals on items that would otherwise cost them a ton of money elsewhere. This is what makes bidding on DealDash and other penny auctions so much fun. What about you? What do you think about DealDash’s guarantee and bidding?
