DealDash Tips: Don’t Forget to Bid!

DealDash

Have you ever seen an item on DealDash and thought “I gotta have that!” but then you forget to come back and bid on the item? That is so frustrating! Here are some tips from DealDash to prevent that from happening again.

Picture it, you are browsing around on DealDash and see the perfect item for your home, family, or friend. You think to yourself “I’ll come back later when the bidding is open on this item. Then you walk away and forget about the item. Later you think “Oh no!! I missed that auction!!” I can’t even tell you how many times that has happened to me over the years. It’s a really frustrating experience that doesn’t have to happen to you again! DealDash has implemented a few handy ways that you can prevent this from happening again.

Alerts for the Future

If you have been browsing for something special in an upcoming auction and you spot the item of your dreams it would be a shame to miss out on it. However, if the item isn’t scheduled yet, then you have run into a pickle since you can’t set a BidBuddy for an item that doesn’t have a scheduled start time.

No problem, ladies and gentlemen! DealDash has something called “Alerts” that you can set for the future. You can set an alert for anything in the DealDash product catalog that there isn’t currently an auction scheduled to start soon. Search for anything that you would like or need, and click on the picture when it comes up. If there isn’t an auction scheduled for that item in the near future you will see a little button that says “Alert Me”. Just click that button and DealDash will send you an email when they have scheduled an auction that that item, and then again when it is about to start. I have set alerts for a few things over the years that I ended up with such as my “no touch” stainless garbage can and my automatic cat box. I love the alerts feature because I have a terrible memory!

Bookmarking for the Present

Bookmarking is more for when you are browsing the auctions for the next few hours. If you are on the main page of DealDash you can look ahead for the next 24 hours or so. Bookmarking is so you can remember where an auction is that is starting soon so you don’t need to search for it again. You can bookmark any auctions that you see that have a starting time. If you’re not sure if you want to book a BidBuddy for a particular auction or not, then bookmarking is your next best plan. Simply click the star in the upper right corner, and the auction will be moved to your home page where the active auctions are.

Low Retail or High Retail Auctions on DealDash

When shopping on DealDash.com, do you look for low-retail or high-retail auctions?

Let’s look at some of the reasons we might choose low-retail auctions over playing high-retail auctions instead.

Low-Retail Auctions

  • Low-retail auctions are less risky. Therefore, shoppers on tight budget might be better off competing in these auctions. If we bid in low-retail auctions we probably will not need to use nearly as many bids and we will be far less likely to lose money. If we do not win, all we have to do is Buy-It-Now and get all our bids back free.
  • Low-retail auctions might not be as popular as the high-retail auctions and, therefore, might be more likely to have less competition and be easier to win.

High-Retail Auctions

  • High-retail auctions are more risky. If we bid in high-retail auctions, we would most likely have to use a lot more bids and we might not be able to afford to purchase the product if we lose. In that case, if we lose the auction, we would also lose all of our bids.
  • High-retail auctions might also be more popular and have stronger competition. Wealthy players, who can afford to purchase several large packages of bids, are more likely to shop for the high-dollar items.

Bottom line: Before bidding in an auction, we should first look at our budget and number of bids we have, check the retail value of the products, look at the competition and then decide.

If you want to win big on DealDash you’ll need to keep these hot tips in mind. Read on for more information on the best online auction site out there – DealDash.

Whether you’re a new or experienced bidder, you can always use a few hot tips to keep you thinking about the auctions. There’s no shame in getting a little help here and there, and the best place around to get help is right here on DealDash Tips. Read the article, implement the tips, start winning more auctions on DealDash!

BidBuddy is #1 in Your Arsenal

The BidBuddy is your absolute best bet to get a win on DealDash. The reason for this is the BidBuddy never needs to take a break. BidBuddy doesn’t need a snack or a bathroom break, he doesn’t get tired, and he will relentlessly bid until he has no more bids to place.

Luckily, the BidBuddy is ready for you on every single auction that’s held on DealDash. Can you believe that the BidBuddy is free for everyone to use? Not only that, the BidBuddy is easy to use and only takes a moment to get set up. Here are the directions:

  1. Choose an auction, any auctions
  2. Find the box in the auction that says “Book a BidBuddy” that’s in the middle of the page
  3. Type in the number of bids as you are willing to spend on this one auction
  4. Hit Enter

After that, there is nothing more to do. You can cancel the BidBuddy or add more bids anytime that you would like.

Go Wild and Crazy

Do you ever find yourself stuck in a bit of a rut while you are bidding? Well, maybe it’s time to do some different things. Go bid in a different category, bid on something that you would never have tried to bid on before, or even throw in some bids on a huge bid pack! There are lots of things that you can do to change things up and make them a little wild compared to how you usually bid.

Celebrate Nine Years of DealDash with Awesome Promotions & Savings

It’s hard to believe this amazing penny auction website is now celebrating nine years! I’ve been bidding on DealDash for two-and-half-years now and have really come to love all the amazing things about it. DealDash is pretty excited, too, and is offering bidders some unique opportunities to maximize wins and savings.

Daily Winning Limit Promotion

With this promotion, bidders can win up to five items per day. This is exciting news as it creates less competition once other bidders reach their limit of five items won each day.

Time as Highest Bidder 3x Faster

Now instead of earning up to 10 seconds for each bid you place, you will earn up to 30 bids for each bid you place. This helps your Time as Highest Bidder clock fill up faster—and once that clock hits its mark, you reach the next level and earn more free bids!

Great Prices on Bid Packs

Today bids are just 13 cents each and that’s a great price! Who knows what tomorrow’s price will be? But today, it’s an awesome bargain. Stock up on bid packs while the price is low.

Could it get any Better?

If there’s a way to make it better and more worthwhile than ever to bid, DealDash will find a way. This celebratory week may bring more promotions so stay tuned and happy bidding!

Happy 9th Anniversary, DealDash!

DealDash Tips Get Your Head in the Game

DealDash

Getting your head in the DealDash game is important. If you get distracted you have less of a chance to win. Here are some tips from DealDash to get your head in the game.

No one should be bidding distracted, but that’s just what people do sometimes, and then wonder why they didn’t win the auction. When you are able to get (and keep) your head in the game while you are bidding on DealDash it really increases your chance of snagging a big win! Read these tips on staying focused and enjoy your time bidding on DealDash.

Choose the Best Time for you to Bid

Many people have said that they like to try to bid either late at night or early in the morning to get a good deal. This might be when DealDash has fewer bidders, that’s true, however, if you are unable to focus and stay awake during these times then they really aren’t the best time for you to be bidding, even if there are fewer bidders. So choose the time that works best for you, even if it’s a time when DealDash happens to have more bidders. Let me tell you one thing, you aren’t able to win an auction if you’re falling asleep at the keyboard – unless you booked a BidBuddy, of course.

Minimize Distractions if Possible

If you live in a crazy-busy house like I do with lots of kids and a couple of pets running around, then you know it’s important to minimize distractions. Bidding while older children are in school and younger ones are napping can be a great time. With the warmer weather coming up soon, a great way to minimize distractions might be to send the kids out into the backyard or onto the deck to play with outside toys. I like to keep things like Play-Doh, chalk, and bubbles as outside-only toys. This way the kids are excited to go out on the deck and play with them since it’s not an everyday activity for them.

If You Do End Up Distracted

Sometimes you just can’t help but fall asleep or get distracted while bidding. If you accidentally place too many bids and fall asleep, or you aren’t paying attention and bid way too much, then you have BIN to save you. If you aren’t familiar with BIN, it means “Buy It Now.” If you are bidding in any auction on DealDash and you don’t win, you can purchase the item at retail price and DealDash will give you all the bids back. After you have completed the transaction then DealDash will return your bids as well as give you free shipping on the item.

We love to share our DealDash knowledge with all of the new (and not so new) DealDash bidders. Read on for a recap of the best tips from last week, from the DealDash Tips Blog.

Be Pampered from the February 17th Blog

The theme of February 17th’s blog was all about the pampering items available on DealDash. The top tip of that blog was a list of some great pampering items that can be won from DealDash. Here is one of my favorite pampering items available from DealDash:

“Bathrobe. DealDash offers a spa-style bathrobe that features a velour exterior and an absorbent terry interior. These bathrobes are up for auction in both white and gray. This is another item that’s great for a man or a woman. They are comfortable, roomy, and extremely high-end.”

 Remember Your Budget from the February 19th Blog

The blog on February 19th was regarding tips for everyone to keep in mind, in other words, the basics. There were a few excellent tried and true tips in there, but the tip to remember from that blog was to set and stick to a bidding budget. From that blog:

“You’ll need money to buy bids, pay final auction values, and also do any BINs (Buy It Now) that you deem important. Make sure that you stick to your budget, and don’t go over because then you will be short on your bidding budget for the following month.  ”

Exciting Promos from the February 20th Blog

February 20th’s blog was all about fun promotions that are run periodically on DealDash. Barbara wrote about a few different promotions, but a Mother’s Day one was her favorite. From the blog:

“Another one of my favorite auction features from the past was the Mother’s Day two-for-one special. Winning shoppers not only won the auction product for ourselves, but we also won a second one to gift to our mothers. ”

Birthday Fun for Everyone from the February 21st Blog

February 21st’s blog was all about birthday items that you could win or BIN. There’s something for everyone on DealDash. You have to think carefully about who you are gifting, though. From the blog:

So think about who you’re surprising. Are they a baby or toddler? A child or teenager? A young adult or middle-aged person? An elderly person? There could be some cross-over gifts, for sure, such as gift cards to restaurants, but for the most part, people from these different stages of life probably would appreciate different types of gifts.

Learn Before Bidding on DealDash!

By Barbara

Many DealDash.com customers could save bids and win auctions simply by taking a few minutes to watch, read and learn more before bidding.  To learn how to “get smart” and start winning, I made a list below of where to look and what to look for.

Where to Look

  • Go to the top of the home page and read everything under the “Help” and “How It Works” headers.
  • Go to the bottom of the home page and read the latest blogs. These blogs are written by real DealDash customers who willingly share various winning strategies and helpful tips on how to have a rewarding shopping experience.
  • Go to the “Winners” header. You will see a list of featured winners who recently won the best deals and you can click on “View all winners” to see a list of all winners.

What to Look For

  • Look for information explaining how to find and use the automated bidder, BidBuddy, how to earn free bids as “Time as the Highest Bidder” and how to get all your bids back free by using the “BIN (Buy-It-Now) option.
  • Look for winners who won several auctions and become familiar with their screen names. Most likely these are experienced “power bidders” you might not want to compete with in the same auctions.
  • Look for “easy-to-win” auctions that consistently close early. See how much they closed for and how many bids former winners used. By paying close attention to details, you will most likely win more auctions.

DealDash Tips to Give a Birthday Surprise

dealdash

How many people do you know that are having a birthday this year? Everyone! Here are some tips to score some birthday gift surprises on DealDash.

Do you like to give your friends and family birthday surprises? DealDash has just about anything that you need to get someone in your life a birthday surprise, from a 1-year-old to a 90-year-old. There’s something for everyone! Here are some tips for winning items to give as birthday surprises on DealDash.

Who Are You Giving a Gift to?

Before doing any bidding on DealDash, you’ll need to think about the person who’s birthday is coming up. As we discussed, there is something for everyone – but everyone wouldn’t want the same birthday surprise. So think about who you’re surprising. Are they a baby or toddler? A child or teenager? A young adult or middle-aged person? An elderly person? There could be some cross-over gifts, for sure, such as gift cards to restaurants, but for the most part, people from these different stages of life probably would appreciate different types of gifts.

Once you’ve determined the life stage of the person who you are giving a gift to, then select the item that you would like to win or BIN for their birthday surprise. There are quite a few different choices of items you can choose on DealDash. With that said, here are some of the items that you might want to consider when you’re searching for an item as a birthday surprise on DealDash.

  • Gift Cards – As I mentioned above, gift cards can be an excellent gift for just about anyone. For kids, there are gift cards to toy stores, bookstores, or big box-type stores that have kid items. For adults, there are restaurants, specialty stores, and hardware stores. Nothing says love like a gift card to purchase your very own surprise with!
  • Toys – Toys are a great present for the under-12 set, and DealDash has a varied selection to choose from. There are soft stuffed animals, fun night lights and lamps, rocking horses, and even bicycles.
  • Sports Equipment – For older kids and teens, sports equipment would make a wonderful birthday surprise. There is sports equipment that you can use yourself such as basketball hoops, and also signed sports memorabilia as well. Or why choose? Give a baseball bat to use and a signed baseball to keep.
  • Camping and Hiking Supplies – Outdoors equipment makes a great birthday surprise for older teens and young adults. Most of the people that I know in that age group love to go hiking, kayaking, and even geocaching. DealDash can provide all sorts of things such as hiking shoes, kayaks, and metal detectors.
  • Art and Home Decor – Any adult who has a place to call their own could use a piece of artwork or home decor. These items can be very expensive if you buy it in the store, but if you win it on DealDash it could make a very generous present.
  • Gardening Supplies – Summer is coming soon, and if you know someone who has a birthday in the Spring or Summer, then gardening supplies could be a great present to surprise them with. They’ll love it!

Choose an Auction Time

Once you’ve decided on a life stage and a present, then it’s time to choose an auction time. It’s a very rare item that only comes up once on DealDash – they typically offer the same item within a few days of each other, so more people have a chance to win the item.

Once you have decided exactly what you want, then you can do a search with the search bar to see the different days and times that this specific item is up for bid. Choose the best time for you to bid in the DealDash auction. You can just load up your BidBuddy and have him bid for you, or you can choose a time where you can control the bids. It’s up to you! Know that no matter if you win or end up doing a BIN (Buy It Now), the recipient is going to love their birthday present.
