Four Reasons to Shop on DealDash

If I were to ask other customers why they shop on DealDash.com one of the most common responses might be, “to get a bargain?” That is a good response, and if we know how to play smart on DealDash, we should be able to win our share of bargains.

Regardless, there are many other great reasons to shop on DealDash. Below are five more reasons why I shop on DealDash:

Convenience

I can shop on DealDash any time of day or night, so I never have to worry about what time a store opens or closes. As a retiree, I no longer live by the clock or tight deadlines. I now make my own schedule. That is one of the great advantages of being retired.

Saves Time, Money

By shopping on DealDash, I save both time and money. I save time by not having to go to the store and I save money for gas by shopping from home. Instead, I can get more work done around the house, like laundry and vacuuming, and just wait for my packages to get delivered to my front door.

Free Postage, Handling

By shopping on DealDash, I save money on postage and handling because all of my orders are shipped postage free. Not only that, I can also count on everything arriving in excellent condition because my orders always arrive with more than enough protective wrapping.

Reliability

By shopping on DealDash, I can count on receiving high-quality products with a money back guarantee. After winning 778 auctions, DealDash has always lived up to its reputation of being a fair and honest shopping site.

Winning Equals Good Planning

Winning on DealDash.com often equals good planning. It might mean saving up bids for a long time to win a high-dollar product with tough competition.

Even if we use the automated bidder, BidBuddy, we should still plan to only shop when we can closely monitor the auctions. I’ve lost many auctions on DealDash because I had too many distractions or got too busy with other household chores and did not take the time to keep my eye on the auctions I wanted to win.

To win auctions, we need to consider:

  • Do I have enough time to closely monitor this auction?
  • Is this auction product something I need and will actually use? Remember, it is against DealDash policy to resell the products we win. We can give the products we won to friends and family members or keep them ourselves, but we are not to turn around and list them for sale.
  • Do I have enough bids to win this auction? Based on the number of bids it took most previous winners to win this auction, do I need to purchase or win more bids first.
  • Are any power bidders competing in this auction? Did any of the screen names in this auction recently win a large bid pack?
  • Are too many other players competing in this auction? Would I have a better chance of winning if I waited for the next one that comes up for auction when fewer players might be competing for it?

Bottom Line

If we keep a checklist of things to look for when shopping on DealDash, we will most likely win more often.

New Items on DealDash

If you have not been shopping on DealDash.com for a while, you might want to look at some of the many new auction items that are now available. In addition to the three new vehicles, below are some other new items that caught my eye that I think many shoppers might be interested in winning.

Latest iPhones

I don’t know about you, but it’s difficult for me to keep up with all the latest iPhones. The technology changes so quickly and they are still such high-dollar items. Perhaps a new iPhone might be on a family member’s Christmas list and it would be great to win one for half the cost. Here are two of the cell phones now up for auction:

  • Apple iPhone X – 256GB – Space Gray + Verdict. Case and Cables; Buy It Now Price $1,399.00.
  • IPhone XS 256GB Silver (Ships by 10/21); Buy It Now Price $1,229.00.

Other New Products

Below are some other new products now up for auction that many people might put on their Christmas list.

  • Volsen Atom Cordless Vacuum; Buy It Now Price $550.00 — One thing I do not like about vacuuming my two flights of carpeted stairs in my house is having a cord attached to my vacuum. This cordless vacuum would most likely make that job a lot easier.
  • LG Gram 13.3-Inch IPS FHD i5-8250 Laptop – White; Buy It Now Price $997.00 — Who couldn’t use an updated laptop? This one has a 72 Wh battery that lasts for 22.5 hours. I sure would love to have this so I could hide in a corner of the local library where I could get some writing done without interruptions.

DealDash has many other new items that would make wonderful gifts. Therefore, it might be a good idea to start shopping now to save money. Perhaps you could win a special gift for a bargain price.

Strategies for Vehicle Shopping

DealDash.com still has three new vehicles up for auction.

When I checked this morning, the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan LS – Automatic was down to 7 active bidders, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 LE FWD – Automatic was down to 6 active bidders and the 2018 Nissan Frontier King Cab S 4-Cyl – 5-Speed Automatic was down to 7 active bidders.

Last night, however, the Toyota and the Nissan truck were both down to only four active bidders and it looked like they both might close early. Now it looks like these auctions might be going for a long time yet.

One thing for sure is that when bidding on vehicles that are valued at $19,000–$28,000–and $25,000 just having a lot of bids to invest might not be enough. Knowing when and how to use our bids might be a lot more important.

First, we know it’s going to take a large number of bids to win one of these vehicles. If we have 20,000 bids and put 10,000 bids on the Toyota and 10,000 bids on the Nissan truck, would we have a better chance to win or would we have a better chance of winning if we put all 20,000 bids on only one of them? It’s something to think about.

Because the Chevrolet will be 50 percent off to the winner, I anticipated that auction would run longer. Even if it sells at $12,000.00 the winner would only have to pay $6,000.00. Still, many bidders will soon drop out because they might not have enough money to cover the selling cost.

Winners will have to pay the full selling (closing) price of the other two vehicles. Therefore, I anticipate those two vehicles will sell for a lesser amount. One strategy would be to wait until the auction gets down to the last two or three bidders and then add 500 to 1,000 bids at a time.

We must keep in mind that the more we have to win, the more we have to lose, too. Some shoppers are not willing to risk too much, especially if they cannot afford to purchase the vehicles if they lose. Whatever we decide to do, these vehicle auctions are not going to be an easy win, but how thrilling to those who do!

Who Are You, Who Am I?

When shopping on DealDash.com I need to know who you are and you need to know who I am, too. What do I mean?

Recognizing screen names of other competitors is very important. Knowing the auctions we do not want to play are just as important as knowing the auctions we do want to play. This becomes even more important if we are on a tight budget and do not have many bids to win auctions.

Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”  That is good to remember when shopping on DealDash. Instead, we could say, “A bid saved, is a bid earned.” It’s one more bid we can use to win an auction, and sometimes that is all it takes to win — just one bid or one bid more.

Make a List

I made a list of screen names I try to avoid bidding with in the same auctions. My list is based on the following criteria:

  • Does this same screen name show up several times every week on the “Winners’ List?”
  • Does this screen name win several high-dollar auctions?
  • Does this screen name drive up the selling cost of auctions by using a ridiculously high number of bids to win and/or over-bids the value of auction products on a regular basis?
  • Does this screen name often win large bid packs?
  • Did this screen name start shopping on DealDash several years ago, or is he/she a Newbie who does not yet know how to play smart?
  • Does this screen name include two people who might be combining incomes to buy more bids?

These are some of questions I ask myself when I update my list of competitor’s to avoid.

Shopping Choices

The shopping choices we make while playing on DealDash.com usually determine whether we win or lose. Of course, some other factors will make a difference, too, but for the most part, the better choices we make the more auctions we win.

When it comes to winning high-dollar auctions, such as one of the three vehicles DealDash now has up for auction, the competition will definitely be tough.  Therefore, we will have to play smart and put our best shopping choices to work.

Plan Ahead, Save up Bids

More than likely, anyone who decides to seriously compete to win one of the three vehicles has already planned ahead and saved up bids. There are several ways DealDash customers could do this: purchase bid packs, exchange products won on DealDash for bids instead, win bid packs, and by earning free bids. My guess is that anyone who is seriously trying to win a vehicle most likely had several thousand bids already saved up before the auctions even started.

Choose One Vehicle

Experienced shoppers will most likely choose which vehicle he or she wants to win and then focus on using all of their bids on just that one. DealDashers who bid on all three vehicles will most likely run out of their bids rather quickly.

Use Bids Wisely, Sparingly

Experienced shoppers will most likely place some bids at the beginning of the auction and then save the rest of their bids after most of their competitors drop out. Since the bidding is open for all new shoppers to join the auction at any time (or for the truck, up to $1,000.00), we would not have to place bids early. However, placing some bids early is like having an insurance policy just in case it closes early.

Most experienced bidders will monitor the bidding closely and wait until the bidding gets down to the last five or six serious competitors. Others might add a certain number of bids every hour or every day, with the hope they will be there when the auction closes. Still others might wait until the bidding gets up to a certain dollar amount.

Whatever you choose, win or lose, I hope you have fun.
