DealDash Doesn't Let You Lose, Here's Why

Did you know that when DealDash’s founder William Wolfram set out to launch DealDash he was only 16 years old? Age really is nothing more than a number and now, 21, he’s proven himself to the penny auction community and the world. Having just won the Ernst & Young WEOY World Entrepreneur of the Year country award for his home country of Finland. What sets him apart? A lot of things. He gets things done, has great ideas and perseverance, plus he hires intelligent people to work with him on his dream.
Wondering what sets DealDash apart from all other penny auction sites?

  • DealDash’s buy it now sets them apart from all other entertainment and penny auction sites with the ability for “losing” bidders to buy an item and get all of the bids they placed in the auction back. Definitely a win! Plus, say you were bidding on an auction, didn’t win but wanted to buy it anyway, use buy it now and pay the stated retail buy it now price, get it shipped free and get all of the bids you placed in the auction back into your bidding account.
  • DealDash Bans Jumpers on Every Auction – Every auction on DealDash is a “No Jumper” auction. Meaning at $5.00 – when the final end price hits the $5.00 price point no new bidders who hadn’t previously placed a bid in the auction can bid.
  • DealDash has free shipping – always
  • DealDash partners with top retailers like Walmart to deliver you brand new and authentic items. Ranging from gift cards to big screen TVs and other electronics – backed by the manufacturer’s warranty and if shipped from Walmart you could return or exchange the item to the big box retailer if you have the receipt.
  • Bid sales make this site home of some of the lowest bid prices in the industry with bid sales bringing bids to around $0.15-0.17 a piece.
  • Patented bidding models and features unique to DealDash
  • “William had a strong conviction that his idea was far more fair to consumers than what existed in the marketplace.”
  • Without buy it now / bids back – bidders would lose a lot of money when they don’t win!

How to Be a Better Photographer & Score a Deal on a DSLR!


Are you a budding photographer? Do you dream of becoming a world famous travel photographer? Love to celebrate and share in the joy of a new marriage by capturing moments of a joyous wedding? How about celebrate a student’s accomplishments with senior portraiture? Or maybe you just want to be able to take better photos of your kids, or cat, or every day life. For whatever reason you want to improve your photography this guide will help!
1. Choosing the right camera.
Whether you choose a new dSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera – which is a digital camera that combines the optics and mechanism of a single lens reflex with a digital sensor. Light travels through the lens and then to a mirror that alternates to send the image to either the viewfinder or the sensor. a DSLR allows you to customize your photos and get creative with the ability to change the ISO, Exposure, White Balance, Aperture and Shutter Speed. Most dSLR cameras allow you to shoot in RAW – the highest quality and a great setting if you want to edit your photos in lightroom or with Photoshop.
dSLRs can be spendy, but did you know that you can save money on a brand new dSLR camera if you win one on a penny auction in DealDash?
Here’s just some dSLR digital cameras that DealDash offers on auction:
Canon or Nikon? DealDash has both! t3

BetterPhoto Guides
The BetterPhoto Guide to Digital Photography (BetterPhoto Series)Paperback – buy it on Amazon for only $18.63digitalphoto
This book is amazing. Very well written and easy to understand. It’s actually what we used as a textbook in a digital photography college class. It will teach you everything from basic equipment, technical jargon to everything you need to know about lighting, setting your exposure, shutter speed, whitebalance, composition, file formats, filters, lens choice, editing images, printing and so much more. Highly recommend this one, especially if you are tired of just shooting in automatic. Shooting in manual with your own ability to adjust settings is perfect.

DealDash for Newbies

Are you an entertainment auction site newbie? Did you hear about DealDash from a friend or see the TV commercial and are wondering what it’s all about? 

DealDash.com is a pay-per bid auction, popularly known as a “penny auction” or “entertainment auction.”

Let’s take a look at DealDash as you would for the first time  and break down how the site works and why you should try it!

Step 1.

Go to www.dealdash.com

Click on “Start Bidding.”

dealdashhome

Step 2:

You can sign up by choosing a username and password or you can also sign up by signing up with Facebook Connect.

Just 3 of many perks of bidding on DealDash:

Free Shipping

All items on DealDash come with free shipping, and are typically shipped out within 24 hours.

Get Bids back if you don’t win

If you don’t win the auction you can always buy the item at a normal, fair retail price and get your bids back.

90-Day money back guarantee

If you try DealDash and find it’s not for you, we’ll refund your first purchase within 90 days. No questions asked

dealdash 1

Step 3: Buy bids. Bids on DealDash today are on sale for $0.15 each down from $0.60. Bids are sold in bid packages of bids from 220 bids for $33; 500 for $75; 1000 for $150; 2000 for $300; 4000 for $600. You could win an item with just one bid but you really should have a 

BUY BIDS

Click Add to Cart and purchase bids – DealDash accepts major credit cards for payment.

The biggest perk of DealDash’s auctions is the ability to use buy it now if you don’t win an item. To buy it now all you have to do is click “buy it now” while the auction is going – pay the buy it now price, the item will be shipped free and you will get ALL of the bids you placed in the auction back to your account so you can try to win another item!

4. Pick an auction and bid!

When you first sign up DealDash will show you beginner auctions that you can bid on. If you want to bid on other auctions click “View all auctions” it’s good to bid in beginner auctions first to get a feel for how bidding works.

beginner auctions on dealdash

To bid click on any item that you would like to try to win… Read the description, check out the item’s value/buy it now price and start bidding. Watch and see who is bidding. Pay attention to how many bids they are using, if they’re bidding frequently and bidding one-on-one with another bidder. Like is the case for this active auction for a Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream maker – you might want to wait before you start bidding on an auction like this, but not too long. Once catpat or 2greek4u stops bidding if no one else enters the auction could end and one bidder could win.

Each time you bid – by either placing a bid by clicking the bid button or setting up a bid buddy, the timer increases and the dollar amount of the current final end price (if the item were to end now) increases by $0.01 – one penny, and the amount of money you spent on the bid. cuisinar

You can choose to bid until you win, or just try a few  bids that you budget and see if you win! When you win all you have to do is accept the win by purchasing the item at the final end price and it will be shipped to you free of charge. DealDash has partnerships with Walmart and Amazon.com so items could come from either place or somewhere else. Let us know if you have any questions about bidding on DealDash and good luck!
