Holiday Safety Tips: Deals on Home Security Devices

With holiday festivities in full-force and Christmas just two days away it’s important to take steps to protect your home, car and belongings this season. Here are a few pr-ecautions you can take this Christmas season, especially if you are going out of town on vacation!

4. Put a hold on your mail to pick it up after you return.
5. Don’t leave newspapers out on doorstep – call to hold this too.
6. Bring in any trash containers
7. Put curtains up on your windows
8. Hide valuables
9. Get a safe.
10. Set up a security system
11. Set up a wireless USB camera to monitor your home while away.
12. Get a new NEST thermostat to control your heat when away.
13. Bid on DealDash + save!

3 Tips for Bidding on DealDash!

1. Bid using the bid buddy!
If you think you don’t have time to spend bidding on an auction, but want to try to win it all you have to do is use DealDash’s “bid buddy.” Bid buddy will let you place bids on items when you aren’t even at your computer if you wish. You can specify the amount of bids that you want the bid buddy to place for you as well as the maximum bid price you would like to bid until, set it then forget it! It’s super easy to use and only takes a minute.
Here’s where you can find bid buddy on each of DealDash’s auctions:
From the homepage click on an item you want to bid on –> look under the bidding timer, under the bid now button- where it says BidBuddy – Your Automatic Bidding Tool – specify the number of bids you would like to place in the “Add bids here” box. Then click “book a bid buddy.” it will use your bids to bid for you within the last seconds of an auction. It will not let you place more bids than you have in your account and it will stop once it has used all of the bids specified. You can stop and reload your bid buddy at any time.

2. Bid before the “No Jumper” lock has been activated
Once an item reaches $5.00 – 500 bids have been placed the auction is locked out to new bidders who didn’t place one of those 500 bids. The good thing about this it lessens competition.
3. Bid to buy, or buy it now!
When you decide to bid on an auction either decide to go “all in” and bid until you win (which could take quite some time, so pace yourself)! Or you could just bid until you spend retail and if you don’t win use buy it now and get all of those bids back. Then you will have a bank of bids to use in a future auction!spruce treeFor instance, this Color Switch Plus 7.5 foot color switch spruce Christmas tree is valued at $326 – that’s the buy it now price. You can bid and hope to win it for less, or just buy it if you really want to be able to decorate this tree (next Christmas!).

DealDash, What's DealDash?

DealDash – what’s DealDash.com?
DealDash is one of the longest running penny auction, pay-to-bid entertainment shopping auction sites online, but what’s that?!
What’s  a penny auction and how does it work?
A penny auction site is an site with “auctions,” but not auctions like your typical eBay auction. They’re auctions in that there’s a set opening time, item, and environment with competition, but there’s a twist!
Penny auctions don’t end as soon as the time hits 0 and the highest bidders has made his bid. Penny auctions end when no one else places a bid against a bidder and the timer hits 0. So bidding on a penny auction could go something like this:
1. There’s an auction item that you really want.
2. You need to place bids to win it.
3. But, you need to purchase bids!
Yes- bids are not free on DealDash or any penny auction – penny auctions really are a fun twist on traditional auctions. You must first sign-up to bid, then buy bids. You can buy bids in a number of amounts from a smaller bid pack to a larger one, it’s totally up to you. Bids cost $.60 each on DealDash unless you buy them at a discount (right now they’re on sale for $0.14).
4. So you now have bids –  You can start bidding on the item you want.
dealdash-delLet’s say you’re going to place a bid now, right after fairlighti and the bid price is currently at $0.45 for a 15.6 inch Dell Inspiron 15″ laptop. The price is at $0.45  – the beginning auction price is 0 – once a bidder places a bid it increased by $0.01 and 1 cent with each subsequent bid to bring it to the price it’s at now, so 45 bids have been placed on this $477 Dell laptop.  So as you can see the time is at 10 seconds, fairlighti just placed the bid – once you place a bid  – either at 6 seconds left or 9 seconds, the timer is reset again to 10 seconds, the clock ticks down and other bidders could place a bid. The only way you can win is if everyone else stops bidding.
So what if you were lucky!? That would be awesome! If you could win a new laptop for $0.46! It’s possible… While the winning price is $0.46 you would pay for the bids you already bought (the value of 1 bid = $0.60) + the end price =$1.06. Shipping is free! DealDash ships all of their items free of charge!
