8 DealDash Tips to Get You from Barely Walking to Marathon Winner

runnersA marathon is like a penny auction, with its ups and downs, but once you’ve won one, you can win again! 🙂
Remember – you have to learn how to walk before you can run. These 8 tips will help you out if you are a new bidder on DealDash and don’t know where to begin.
1. Bid Before the Auction is on Lock Down
Meaning when it has a lock on it and it says “No Jumper” (Click here for DealDash’s No Jumper Auctions Explained) the auction has already reached the $3 mark and no new bids will be accepted.
2. Know your competition.
Keep an eye on the auctions on a frequent basis. Get to know your opponents. Look them up on AllPennyAuctions.com. Place your bid in early, watch the auction and keep watching it. Watch and see when there are less bidders bidding, preferably just 2 of the same. Then start bidding again. Eventually one of the two will back down, then it will be whoever can bid the longest. Since you have just started bidding you may have a competitive advantage.
3. Use Bid Buddy
Bid Buddy is a great tool to use. It helps you to conserve bids and to not miss out if you miss the bid button.
4. Have a Game Plan Ahead of Bidding
Always have a plan ahead of starting to bid. Do not get distracted by bidder bios that tell you they will never stop. It’s a ploy to scare you so they win easier. Really, it may not work, but it does sometimes.
5. Watch the auction closely
Again, this cannot be stressed enough! Do not get distracted because you can easily let anyone else win when you stop bidding when you meant to get your bid in.
6. Bid Early & Bid Late
The competition may not be as fierce early in the morning or late at night. Take advantage of this. Be an early bird, or become a night owl and try your hand at bidding.
7. Use Buy it Now 
If you wanted the item, didn’t win it and lost a ton of bids, you can just buy the item and get your bids back. Just make sure you purchase it within 7 days of the auction end date. Learn more about DealDash’s Buy it Now. 
8. Keep Your Eye on the Prize
Again, and again, just stay focused!
“This is for the new bidders, before bidding on your first auction, watch a couple first to learn how it works and get a feel for the whole auction process in general. Then when you feel confident enough, place your first bid and remember to stick with one auction, don’t go placing bids on many different auctions as you will lose tons of bid very quickly. Patience is a key word in the auction world and if you practice this you will find it will pay off in the long run.” -lakergirl1

Summer Fun Guide DealDash Deals: Camping Trip

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

-John Muirwoods
Now is the time to schedule your campsites for that summer camping trip you’re always talking about but never get around to go on!

Advance reservations for the 2014 season are now available on the National Park Service’s booking sites: ,www.reserveamerica.com or www.recreation.gov or 1-877-444-6777. 
Since you are going to reserve a spot and plan that adventurous summer camping trip, even if just for the weekend, you will need right gear.
Tent First things first. You will need a good, waterproof tent.
This Ozark Trail 20x10inch, 3 room tent is huge and sleeps 10 if you want something spacious. The item value is $159.85 and you can get alerted to when this ite becomes available on DealDash’s website.
ozark trail tent
If you want to go all out and bring the entire family check out this monster of a tent:

“When the wilderness calls, a Northwest Territory front porch tent 18′ x 12′ size brings along the amenities of home spaces. With accommodations for up to 10 adults, it provides a retreat that redefines rugged adventures and turns them into luxurious vacations. The entire family, plus some, can sleep and move about comfortably with room to spare. A divider panel provides privacy between two groups while a back door with zipper liner lets those in the rear enjoy a separate entry. Full-size windows around all sides keep fresh breezes flowing while a moisture-repelling top lets you stay dry. A fully enclosed floor to keep the outdoors where it belongs is also removable for cleaning.” Valued at $350 – you may also be able to get this cheaper if you bid on it in a penny auction.

And once you win, while you’re at it you may as well move right in! Ok, not quite, but doesn’t it sound appealing? Especially if a camping companion doesn’t like to rough it out in the woods – this tent will deliver a real glamping style camping experience!

My Kids LOVE DealDash!!!

My user name on DealDash is loveablenicki. I have 2 young boys Zander 11 and Zack 4. They have grown to love DealDash as much as I do, and now that they know what mommy is doing on there. My 11 year old son loves video games. Every time there is a new video game that comes out he knows he is more likely to get it if DealDash has it than if I have to go to a store. We look them up in the DealDash search and mark them for reminders. DealDash will send me a email every time an auction is coming up so I don’t miss out on the deals. I have won many video games on this web site.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II for Nintendo Wii valued at $20 for $1.24 is one of many I have won and this is what my 11 year old is into – Star Wars.

Necessities for the Perfect Tailgating Party

tailgating imageSummer is just about here. Tailgating is a ritual that originated in the US where concertgoers of ball game fans get together either before or after a game or concert and enjoy beverage and grilled meats and picnic foods from the back of their cars or trucks. Popular tailgating foods include hamburgers, hot dogs, backed beans, coleslaw, potato salad, chips, pimento cheese. If you tailgate you know all about this and should definitely check out the following items we’re about to share with you to make your next tailgating party a success! For some tailgating isn’t just a fad, it’s a lifestyle.
1. A tailgating party wouldn’t be a tailgating party without the food. And since grilled meats is a staple in the tailgating lifestyle this Coleman Road Trip Grill from DealDash would be must have!
coleman road trip grill
“My wife and I wanted a new grill for tailgating at Miami Dolphins games this year. I am somewhat of a home gourmet and I am extremely particular of my cooking accouterments. After reading countless reviews on many different sites we narrowed it down to the Weber Q and the Coleman Roadtrip LXE. . We chose the Roadtrip based on it’s modular ease of set-up and take down (I’ve never seen anything easier), the high 20,000 BTU output and the dual burner set-up, none of which the Weber Q had unless you purchased the top of the line Weber which was more than double the price in order to get dual burners and the higher BTU’s. The Weber Q stand seemed much flimsier also.” – Review from Amazon, purchase this grill on DealDash for a buy it now price of $171.99 or bid to try and win it for less than retail. 
2. A generator to power up anything you might need. Outdoor TV, panini maker, toaster, mini fridge, popcorn maker..
