It’s Party Time at DealDash!

stainless-steel-15-pc-127It’s so much fun to bid at DealDash, so why not get some chores done while you are bidding.  This time of year we Americans do a lot of celebrating and you could find some wonderful deals on the things you need to pull off the best holiday party going!

bakewareDealDash has a nice selection of Pots, Pans and Bakeware.  These are items that come up for auction occasionally, so you have to do your shopping and planning to get involved with the auction.  First search what you are looking for and then use the convenient “Alert Me” tab to have DealDash alert you when the auction is scheduled.  I find, if I can find an item in a search bar, it isn’t long before it does come on the market.  These everyday items are perfect for Binning.  That is the Buy It Now (BIN) promise from DealDash, if you try to win an item, and you don’t win it, you can BIN it and get the bids you used trying. This way you do end up with your item, plus you get the bids back to try to win another item.

kitchenaidDealDash has fair retail prices comparable to the big box stores, and they ship every item for free whether you win it or BIN it…free shipping every time. They also rotate the stock, what you may see today won’t necessarily be available next week.  Items can “run a course” and not return.  Meaning, if they carry the pictured set of pots and pans this month, it may be a different manufacturer next month.

They have a few items that are really popular and they always have them, like the coveted stand mixer in every color under the rainbow. Not only are they wonderful to have, they make a fantastic gift.  I try to win one for all the nieces when they marry.  Needless to say, I’m a pretty popular Auntie. The stand mixer is a tough win, you can win it for less than $10, I see it all the time, but more likely, you will close above $100, that’s 10,000 bids between you and a dozen or so players, so be prepared!

I have experience winning the bakeware too, they can go for few bids, I love to get involved and if I don’t win an item under $150 with a couple dozen bids, I back out and opt to either BIN or forfeit the bids.  It’s ok, there is always the next one.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Ways to Get Free Bids at DealDash

free bids on dealdashEven though it’s fun to bid and shop at DealDash regardless of the free bids, it’s still great to be appreciated by them and rewarded for loyalty.  DealDash is the most generous penny auction site ever!  With just a little “leg work” you will be able to enhance your bidding experience with some free bids from DealDash.

The easiest way to get bids, is my all time favorite, just bid.  For every second you are the highest bidder in any auction, you are earning free bids for your time, this is called Time As High Bidder (TAHB).  When the Bid Buddy places a bid, there is about 10 seconds before Bid Buddy places the next players bid,  this is your time which accumulates until you reach the next level.  When you reach the next level, your Bid Meter will light up and when you click it, the bids are deposited right into your account.  Often, DealDash will have specials where they multiply the free bids by 2, 3, 4 or even 5 times the free bids!  Each level you achieve rewards you with an increasing number of bids, the longer you bid, the more you get.

You can get free bids from DealDash for posting a photo of a win to the community at [email protected] Take a nice “bust” shot of you with your win, send it with a comment about your savings and experience to the community at DealDash and they will post it to their social media page.  DealDash uses Facebook to share photos, thoughts of the day and reviews from other players. Depending on the value of the item, you are awarded 50 to 350 free bids for your photo and comment.  Then each photo submitted where the prize is over $99 will be entered in a weekly Photo of the Week, where the winner is awarded 1000 bids.

You can get free bid by winning too, each win (except bid packs) comes with a bid exchange.  Let’s say you win an item and you don’t really need it.  DealDash will let you exchange the item for an amount of bids equal to about one bid per .50 cents to a dollar for the value of the item,  for example, if you win a $100 item, you can exchange it for approximately, 50 bids to 100 bids. Likewise if the item is valued at $1500, you may get up to 1500 bids for that exchange.  There is a group of players who do this all the time, they bid, win and exchange. I try to only use this feature if I need bids for another items which I want.  If you exchange a win, you don’t get the item,  so if you do this all the time, you won’t have anything show for it.  So, use it sparingly.

DealDash has a new review feature, and every time you receive an item in the mail, you are give an opportunity to review the product and the service that came with it.  For every item you review DealDash will give you 10 bids.  Often, I will have 10 or more reviews to leave, they add up quick because you do win a lot at DealDash.

There is a new feature, this is a reward for each consecutive day you bid, so if you bid on Monday they give you a couple of bids, on Tuesday a few more and so on all the way up to 7 days where you are rewarded 30 bids, and then for every day you continue to bid you will get 30 more bids.  I always save one bid each day so tomorrow the first bid I place gives me 30 bids.  Some days, when I don’t buy bids, I still have a few bids to go for a little something.  I’ve won many, many items with less than 30 bids.

So, all you have to do to earn free bids at DealDash is to show up and bid, then win and get some more free bids.  It’s a wonderful system and I feel greatly appreciated for these free bids.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Technology For Everyone at DealDash

robot-wowwee-74Technology comes in all types and sizes, and you can find a great number of technologic fun items at DealDash.  These items are usually very popular, so you’ll want to be prepared to do battle with your opponent.  I find there are a lot of Newbies who play in this field as well, and they tend to stomp bids until they figure out the Bid Buddy is the best way to win auctions.

irobot roombaThat being said, you need to stay involved with an auction, especially in the beginning of the auction.  I will back out if there are many stompers or Newbies, but that depends on how many bids you have or are willing to use.  On occasion a tech prize will go for a couple of days before it ends, that’s why you must be willing to load the bids into your Bid Buddy, so you can go to sleep at night.  The Bid Buddy is a beautiful feature at DealDash that bids for you when you can’t be at the computer.  I use it all the time, even if I am only going to use a few bids, it’s a foolproof way to get your bidding done in a timely manner.

ipad air 2So, when you go for the tablet, the metal detector, a go cart, or the robots, be prepared to do battle.  I’ve seen all these items go for just a few dollars, but there are a lot of factors that come into play.  First, it helps to know the players, so watch a few auctions.  You will get a sense for the players who bid in every auction and then tucker out, or if they are the type of player who never leaves or may overbid.

Bid in auctions that others have won recently.  By that I mean, open the auction.  See the list of players who won the item recently, any of those winners may not be able to win the item if they just won it because you can win each item only once a week.  You can win as many items as you wish, you just can’t duplicate an item for 7 days.  This gives you an advantage when someone you don’t want to do battle with is on the list and their date is within a week, they are out!

razor-kart-304Another factor is how often an item is offered.  Some of these really popular items come out about once a week, you need to plan to win with these special items.  Be sure to use the “Alert Me” feature which is located inside every auction.  Just open one and hit the “Alert Me” tab and DealDash will send you a notification when it’s scheduled.  If you find an item in the search bar you can also set an alert there directly.

There are a lot of fun technologies at DealDash, and with a little practice you can win some too.  There is always a great deal around the corner.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Toys For All Ages at DealDash

apples-25You couldn’t have more fun at DealDash then going for the fun and games category.  I love bidding in this category.  Whenever I am in need of a game or toy, I always go to DealDash first, they have something for everyone.  I love the interesting selection of outdoor yard game, and indoor family games.

monopoly-23Think of your favorite game, and I bet you’ll find it at DealDash, one year for Christmas everyone in our family got a great game because they are fairly easy to win.  They are a popular item to bid on at DealDash, and you don’t find them on the schedule every day, so  you have to plan on winning in this category.  Some items go on the market every day, but not all items.  That’s why it’s so important to shop ahead.  Do your searches diligently.

lego-44The perfect Lego toy will come on the market and you don’t want to miss it.  To ensure you don’t miss any auction, use the handy bookmarking tools provided by DealDash.  They have the “Alert Me” tab in the auction, and you can find a bookmark star on the top right hand corner of the auction for items that have been scheduled already.  By bookmarking it, you will place the item at the top of your DealDash Homepage.  I like to set an alarm to remind myself to show up on time for the auction, you never know, it might go for a dollar, and I want to be the winner, but so will you!

xbox-368They carry board games and gaming systems too.  You can find the right game for your needs and set out to win it.  The games category is perfect for the Buy It Now (BIN) option.  You have to have the item, so you calculate the BIN price and place that number of bids in your Bid Buddy.  To calculate the BIN number of bids simple divide the retail price of the item by the current cost of bids, the sum is the number of bids you could use until you own it.

When you reach that amount of bids and you haven’t won it, you buy it and DealDash will thank you by giving you all the bids you used trying back.  Once you get the bids back, they are yours to use in any other auction.  The formula for a $50 prize when bids are .15 cents is 50./.15=333 bids.  Place the 333 bids in the Bid Buddy and sit back and wait.  I like to use this time to shop around to book mark for the future.  Just check in on the auction occasionally.

Check the games and toy category often, there is always something new coming down the road.  DealDash keeps the auction site fresh and full of prizes for us to be entertained and win!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

DealDash Values Their Customers Greatly

You would be hard pressed to find another company that treats its customers with so much gratitude and kindness.  Many companies, especially on-line companies, just see the customer as a sale and not like a human being.  You won’t find that at DealDash, they are just too kind and very much in touch with their players.

There are many ways they show their gratitude for the players. First, and my personal favorite, is the free bids they give for your Time As High Bidder (TAHB), that’s a feature which tallies the time you bid. For every bid you place a timer begins until the next bid is placed, if all players are using the Bid Buddy feature you average about 10 seconds for every bid.  This is tallied and when you reach your next “level”, you are rewarded with the free bids.  The amount of bids is determined by the time you spend at DealDash, the more you bid, the more free bids you receive.

DealDash is very generous with the free bids in their social scene too. They love it when players share their wins with the Community, and for doing it, they reward you with up to 350 bids. You can then enter into a weekly contest where one lucky player will win 1000 bids, that’s always fun, and I’ve seen just about everyone that posts win the big prize.

There are other features on the site that shows they value their customers, for instance, the Bid Buddy.  This is a feature that ensures you get a chance to accumulate your TAHB, without it, you would pounce in your bids and that just won’t help.  You don’t earn any time at all if you stomp in your bids manually.

The Dashboard is a wonderful tool, there is all kinds of information, I suggest in the beginning you use it a lot to review the number of bids you place on items, to see who you beat in the “won auctions” list.  See who beat you in the bidding history.  Let’s say you just can’t remember the name of a player who beat you, but you do remember that it was a certain item, you go find the item in the list and and click on it. There you will see who it is and that’s always helpful if your thinking of getting involved with this person again.

Customer Service is the most outstanding on the internet.  They care deeply for every concern you might have with DealDash.  Everyone is so incredibly kind.  They take care of your issue, usually immediately.  They claim within 48 hours, but I’ve never waited more than a few hours for a response.  They even have a Live Chat where you can contact them if you have an immediate problem.  I found I used the chat a lot in the beginning, but now that I understand how to shop and play at DealDash, I rarely use it.  It is however, very helpful.

DealDash is the most fair and honest penny auction site.  You will win a lot and have a great time doing it.  They want you back!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

New Items of Luxury from DealDash

towels-99You can always find something for your home at DealDash, they variety of merchandise is amazing, and lately they’ve added another essential everyday item to the line-up, it’s towels!  Luxurious, fluffy and affordable bath towels.  There is a nice variety of colors to choose fro, suitable for any home: Charcoal, Ivory, Deep Blue, Moss Green.  I’ve seen this $99 Charcoal Towel set sell for an average of $15.  There is always one or another offer for the towels that you can bid on.  They are popular, yet some are selling around a dollar!

You can also find other linens and bed spreads at DealDash.  They have been around for awhile, so a lot of the regular players have all the sheets and blankets they need.  I have a few of each color!  The bed spread makes a lovely gift, and it’s so soft and easy to clean. I usually keep a couple in the closet for gifts, you never know when a bridal shower might pop up, and everyone needs a big fluffy comforter!

sheets-100DealDash also has sheets in three sizes: Full, Queen and King.  They are also very soft and yet sturdy.  They dry in minutes and have kept their shape.  I like to win the items for the linen closet because they are good gifts, but also because they are easy to win, and once in a while I like to trade one in for bids.  This is a bid exchange program offered by DealDash, they will give you a set number of bids if you decide you don’t want an item once you’ve won it.  It’s very convenient.  I keep a list of my open wins on my dashboard, if I don’t have enough bids for one items I can always exchange for bids win one of my wins.

You do have to be willing to have nothing in the end if you do that because there are no guarantee you will win anything with the bids and now you don’t have your win either, so be very sure this is what you want when you exchange.  I’ve only regretted it once, but I still think about that one mistake.  What if.  Just be sure you don’t want an item before you exchange.

comforter-120The sheet and comforters are generally easy to win, if you get into a battle and the other player won’t let go, do yourself a favor and be the one to let go, go for the next one.  There is always something nice for your linen closet to bid on at DealDash.  There is also a fair retail price for all this linens, so if you do get going and won’t let go until you spend the products value in bids, you can then purchase the item, and if you Buy It Now (BIN) you will get all the bids back which you used trying.  That’s a Win-Win!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Bid Buddy Brings Success at DealDash

When you first get started at DealDash you will be tempted to poke your bids in one at a time and run from auction to auction trying to win one.  That’s a fun learning experience, but not the best way to conserve bids, and you will soon learn that using the Bid Buddy is the best way to conserve bids and win more auctions.

First, what is Bid Buddy?  Bid Buddy is an aut0matic bidding system designed by DealDash and exclusive to their site.  You place a number of bids into the feature in any auction, and the Bid Buddy will bid every time it’s your turn.  For example, if there are 5 players in the auction, it will bid every fifth bid for you, and the last bid is the winner.  If you don’t use Bid Buddy, you lose the security of your turn, you are much more likely to poke bids in after every other player, that uses bids, in this case, 5 times faster.  So, if everyone is using Bid Buddy, and you aren’t, chances are they have 10 bids invested in the auction and you have more like 50 for the same amount of time.  That also raised the cost of the item, of course, one penny at a time.

Bid Buddy can be found in an individual auction, when I purchased my first bid pack, I was very proactive with my bidding and quickly burned through the pack.  Use the Bid Buddy from day one.  Open the auction of a desired item, in the center of the page, there is a box that says “add bids here”.  You place your desired number of bids in the Bid Buddy, and that amount is deducted from your account, but you can cancel the Bid Buddy at any time, and any remaining bids will be returned to your account.  Once you put the bid in Bid Buddy, just click “Book a Bid Buddy” and let it do the work for  you.

You might think not being active in the auction is boring, but winning is not boring and you will win more using Bid Buddy.  Place your bids and then shop, it’s a great site with new items all the time.  You never know what you will find in the New Item Category.  Also, shop for your future, some items are not offered daily, so when you find an item you like and it’s not scheduled, you can use the “Alert Me” tab and have DealDash send you an email when it is scheduled.

Don’t underestimate your Bid Buddy, it’s a fair and honest way to bid at DealDash, it will help you win!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Bidding On a Budget at DealDash

When you are bidding at DealDash, you need to keep one thing in mind, and that is your budget.  There are few things you need to keep in order when you are bidding at Americas favorite Penny Auction Site, and that is what is it costing you?

This is really important because if you spend too much you may find yourself dissatisfied with the DealDash experience.  Here are a few tips I can give you to help you bid smart on a budget.

First, decide what your budget is.  Let’s say it’s 1000 bids, that costs apron. $140 dollars.  Now decide what you want to win.  Let DealDash tell you when your favorite item is going on the market.  You do this by using your “Alert Me” tab,  all you need to do is find the item you want to win in you search bar, once you do, you click the Alert Me tab and DealDash will let you know by email when it’s coming on the market.  They also let you know when it’s coming on the market in a few minutes, this is my favorite time.  I love to jump into an auction really early and try to win it for a few pennies.  Over my nearly three years at DealDash, I’ve learned to back off when I need to.  This is probably the most difficult skill to learn….to just back off, yep, lose the auction.  I do it all the time, I don’t want to get into a bidding war with someone who might have 100’s of bid to bid in this auction, when the truth is I only want to use 50.

You can guess with great certainty that anyone claiming to be a “grandparent” most likely will overbid, they don’t care how much they spend  on the little darlings.  You can also plan on the guy who says “I’m a photographer” to bid until the cows come home on the camera you’ve been trying to win for some time.  My experience with that is to bid until you win it.  You can over come these players, but you  must be willing to use a ton of bids.  Maybe in the thousands for an item like a coveted Stand Mixer in the unusual color of Aqua.  The Silver one is easier to win, but everyone wants the Aqua one.

Try to win the odd item out.  If you can only win the item once, try to win that first,  the next guy may have already won it.  There are a lot of items on the DealDash site that will bring you great joy, j=you just need to know when to bid and who to bid against . This is a pretty easy thing to figure out, all you need to do is bid, bid bid.

Don’t spend a fortune on bids if you don’t have a fortune to bid.  Get to know who is willing to overbid, and who might beat you just for spite.  You will learn these players fast and furious.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
