DealDash Tips: Abbreviations Explained

DealDash

DealDash is easy to use but has some abbreviations that can be a little confusing for the first-time user. Here is a list of some of the common DealDash abbreviations and phrases.

When you think of a community you think of people who are similar in one way or the other, right? Maybe they live near each other, have the same hobbies, or a common background. DealDash is its own community with like-minded individuals who love deals and the thrill of an auction. And with any community, DealDash has it’s own little lingo, phrases, and abbreviations that other people might not understand at first. Here are some of the more common ones, from DealDash Tips blog.

No Jumper $3 or $5

DealDash auctions have a $3 or $5 No Jumper limit. This means that you have to get at least one bid in the auction before the auction reaches $3 or $5. The auctions are typically a $5 No Jumper, but there are days here and there that DealDash lowers the limit to $3. These are very popular days to bid. It will be marked very clearly on the main auction home screen when DealDash changes it to a $3 No Jumper instead of $5.

Buy It Now (BIN) the Auction

BIN, or Buy It Now is the most popular abbreviation that we will ever talk about on any of the DealDash blogs. BIN simply means that you have lost the auction that you have been bidding in and are willing to buy it for the retail price and receive all of your bids back from DealDash. You also get the luxury of free shipping as well, with tracking. The tracking doesn’t apply to gift cards, but to all other purchases with BIN, even the smallest or cheapest. After you have decided that you are going to BIN the auction that you have been participating in, then just hit the “Buy It Now” button that you will see either in your dashboard or on the auction’s page if the auction is still live. Once you have paid then the bids will be refunded immediately.

BookMarking an Auction

DealDash has so many auctions it’s hard to remember which auction is coming up. However, DealDash has come up with an easy way to remember what you wanted to bid on. When you are on DealDash and see an item that is coming soon you can bookmark it. Click your mouse on the small outline of a star in the upper corner on the right-hand side of the auction and you have bookmarked yourself an auction. The little star will turn solid, and the auction is now pinned to your DealDash home page.

Tips and Tricks for the DealDash Newbie

DealDash

 

Being a newbie is easy on DealDash when you follow these simple tips and tricks. Read on for more information.

DealDash is extremely newbie friendly, unlike some of the other auction sites. Being new on DealDash doesn’t mean that you can’t win auctions! Quite to the contrary, you will actually have an easier time winning auctions, especially on your first few tries. Because you see, on your first few tries, DealDash will show you some auctions that are only visible to other newbies, so there is less competition as well as other inexperienced people bidding on them. If you want to get the inside scoop that some of these other newbies don’t know, then be sure to read the DealDash Tips blog every day. We always provide the best information for DealDash bidders both new and old.

Use Your Newbie Auctions

If you really want to get the hang of DealDash, then be sure not to bid on any of the more advanced auctions on your first few wins. As I said above, when you’re a newbie DealDash will show you some bonus auctions just for newbies as well as some auctions that are available for anyone to bid on as well. The newbie auctions are easy to spot because they are typically lower-valued auctions such as $10 gift cards. Be sure to use up your first few auction experiences on some of these newbie-specific auctions, because once you have won a few auctions then DealDash won’t show you the newbie auctions on your screen anymore.

BidBuddy Truly is Your Buddy

You have probably heard me talk about the BidBuddy hundreds of times in the past few years, but it still stands as the best and most useful tool that DealDash has to offer any bidder. And unlike the newbie-specific auctions, the BidBuddy is for every single bidder and can be used in every single auction.

The BidBuddy can mean the difference between winning and losing an auction. The BidBuddy can also mean the difference between winning and getting an amazing deal, and just getting a few dollars off of the regular retail price. When you use the BidBuddy in an auction you should put in the absolute maximum bids that you can put in without going over the retail price. This way you don’t have stay at your computer and babysit your auctions, you can even turn off your computer and walk away. You can come back later to see if you’ve won! I have had many wonderful surprise wins by using the BidBuddy and walking away.

DealDash Helps You – Tips for Success

DealDash Money

We all want to be successful on DealDash. Here are some tips for your success. Read on for more information.

Being successful in life is important, and being successful on DealDash is not only important but also very fun as well. Being successful on DealDash means that you are getting great items for low prices, you’re saving your family money, and you’re enjoying a hobby that you can do in your home, or even when you’re away from your computer. You don’t have to be in peak physical condition or be a brilliant scientist to enjoy winning and having success on DealDash. Here are some tips for being successful and enjoying your time on DealDash.

Don’t Start Too Big

I know when you first start a new hobby you want to jump into it with both feet. It’s important to be a little cautious on your first few time playing on DealDash because it isn’t a standard auction site like you might have used in the past. DealDash is a pay-to-bid entertainment shopping website. You have to buy bids before you can bid on auctions on DealDash. Once you spend those bids, they’re gone, unless you use the BIN (Buy It Now) feature. So, with that said, it’s important that you understand how everything works before you start bidding on auctions.

Take the Tutorial

DealDash has begun offering a tutorial to new DealDash players when they sign up and buy a bid pack. You can find the tutorial with the other helpful materials on DealDash. Taking the tutorial just takes a few minutes. It takes you through a mock auction with pretend players. It shows you how and when to bid. After you have completed the tutorial you “win” the prize that you were playing for in the tutorial, which is a bid pack of 10 bids. It’s a quick and easy way to understand how to play DealDash as well as get a few bids to play with. I have won many, many auctions with less than 10 bids, so you might even win an auction with your free bids! You never know until you give it a try.

Learn How to BIN

I mentioned Buying It Now (BIN) up above. This simply means that if you lose the auction that you’re playing in that you pay the full retail price for the auction, and DealDash will return all of your bids back into your bid bank to use again. You can do a BIN on any auction that you have placed bids in, it doesn’t matter how many of how few, as long as it was at least one bid. Be sure that you’re bidding on items that you really want, so it’s not a big hardship to BIN the auction if you don’t win in the end.

On the Right Track With Tips from DealDash

DealDash

Are you fairly new to DealDash but feel like you haven’t gotten started on the right track? Let DealDash help.

Getting started on the right track is a very important when you begin bidding on DealDash. If you get started on the wrong track then you can develop some bad habits that will follow you throughout your time on DealDash. It’s just like anything else in life, if you get started doing things the improper way then it’s very difficult to break out of your bad habits and do things the correct way. Read on for some tips from DealDash to get things started on the right foot.

Be Sure You Don’t Develop Rude Habits

If you’re new to DealDash, you might not understand what constitutes rude behavior. Luckily, I’m here to tell you do you don’t accidentally do something rude. However, you can bid any way that you like, so if you choose to be rude, then that’s fine, too, it’s not against the rules.

The main thing that you shouldn’t do is “stomp” on other people’s bids. On DealDash, for every second that a person is the highest bidder in a particular auction they earn “clock time” that is shown at a bar on the bottom of the screen. When the bar is filled up then DealDash will give you however many free bids that you are eligible to “claim.”

Stomping (or being a Stomper) on someone else’s bid means to bid directly after someone without letting the first persons “clock” run down to 2-3 seconds. This is definitely classified as rude behavior on DealDash, and if you make a habit of doing this then be prepared for other people to do it to you.

Practice Good Manners on DealDash

We talked about a rude habit, so let’s talk about good manners. If you read the above, then you know that it’s good manners to wait until the time clock is down to 2-3 seconds before you bid. Another way to show good manners on DealDash is to join the auction early and not wait until the last moment before the price reaches $5. DealDash has a “No Jumpers” after $5 policy, which means that you have to have placed at least one bid before the auction price is over $5. This is so that people can’t keep jumping into the auction and not giving the people who have been bidding all along a fair shot.

Fun Tips for DealDash Super Wins

DealDash

Have you ever had a DealDash “Super Win”? I consider a super win any auction that you can win for less than 10 bids. Here are some tips for getting a DealDash super win!

Getting a super win is seriously an exciting thing. Personally, I jump up and down and go “WoooHooo!!!”, however some of you might be a little more classy than myself. Over my years playing on DealDash I have gotten many, many super wins. Come to think of it, my first three wins were actually super wins! I was able to get three different gift cards for just a couple of bids each. Of course, when you are first starting out DealDash goes easy on you with “beginner auctions” than only other newbies are able to see on the main auction screen. I’ve gotten many super wins since those, of course, and there are some ways that you can increase your odds of getting a DealDash super win, read on to find out how.

Bid at the Right Time, on the Right Day

You’re most likely not going to get a super win on a very busy and popular time to play on DealDash. So Saturday prime-time is out, as well as Sunday afternoons. I find these to be two of the busiest times to bid. When you’re trying to sneak in  few super wins, you’re going to have to figure out some unpopular times and days to bid. When are these days and times? You might think that very late at night might be a good time, but honestly, I’ve found that late nights are quite busy on DealDash, at least here in the Eastern Time Zone. Personally, I have had much more luck bidding in the early morning – when people on the East Coast are typically getting ready for work and the people on the West Coast are still sleeping. Of course, your results may vary.

Bid on the Right Items

Let’s face it, folks, you’re not going to get a $1,000 TV or a $1,500 massage chair for just a few bids. Of course, miracles can happen, but in my experience the smaller, less popular items are ones that you can get for just a few bids. Some examples of things that I have personally won with less than 10 bids are: necklaces, rings, sheets, a comforter, kid’s items, Blu-Ray discs, and even $10 gift cards here and there. I have seen people get some amazing things for less than 10 bids, though, such as artwork, clothing, and even video games.
