‘New’ Labels are New

How long as it been since you have opened DealDash.com?

DealDash support staff recently made another change to improve the shopping site and make it easier for patrons to use. Did you see the new red boxes that say “New” on various auctions offered on DealDash?

If we are looking for “new” products on DealDash.com, we no longer have to hunt for them because they are already clearly labeled for us with a little red box labeled “New.”

Some of the “new” items now labeled with the red “New” box are:

  • New vehicles
  • Memory foam mattress
  • New oil paintings
  • Elliptical and recumbent exercise bike
  • New watch
  • Microscope
  • Wireless headphones
  • Sushi plate (set of three)
  • Cooler cup
  • Fruit bowl

Sometimes new auctions can be the easiest to win. It’s a good idea to check them out to see how strong the competition might be. When DealDash runs the “no new bidders after $3” feature, we might find more auctions that do not have too many shoppers. If we can find any auction with 30 competitors or less, we will have an easier time to plan a working winning strategy.

Best DealDash Features

Do you have a favorite feature on DealDash.com?

Some customers shop on DealDash every day, but some customers might shop a lot more when their favorite feature comes up. Below are some of my favorite DealDash features.

One per Customer
One thing I like about this feature is that it’s available every day. All we have to do is look in the upper left corner of the auctions to find the little yellow square with the number 1. Whenever we see that, we know that auction product has a limit of “one per customer.” I love auctions that have a limit of “one per customer” because it prevents a handful of power bidders to win more than their fair share of the high-dollar items, and it might help the rest of us to win the product.

2X and 3X Time as highest bidder
Look at the green line at the bottom right-hand side of your screen. Whenever we see the 2X feature, we will get twice as much time on the clock as the highest bidder; and whenever we see the 3X feature, we will get three times, or 30 seconds for each bid on the timer, instead of just 10. In other words, placing 300 bids on a 3X feature is like placing 900 bids instead. That means our green line will move all the way to the right a lot faster and when it does, we will be able to collect some more free bids.

No New Bidders After $3
I love this feature because this usually means we will have less competition because all new players will be blocked from placing any bids once the auction price reaches $3 instead of $5 (or in the case of some cars, $1,000).

Fifty Percent Off to the Winner
This feature means that after the auction closes, DealDash will pay half of the selling price and the winner pays only the other half. In other words, if the auction closes at $50, DealDash will pay $25 and the winner will pay $25. During this feature, we have the opportunity to win some really great bargains.

If you have not shopped on DealDash during all of these special features, check it out. Features like these helps to keep DealDash a fun place to shop

Stretching Our Bids

Would you like to stretch your bids when shopping on DealDash.com? It takes a little practice to learn how to do this, but below is a list of some of the things we can do to make the most out of each and every bid.

We might want to stop bidding and save our bids whenever we see a Newbie cutting the clock. The main reason new players do this is because they have not yet found or learned how to use BidBuddy. It usually does not take too long before Newbies figure out that bidding this way uses up too many bids and does not help them win. We might want to temporarily stop bidding until they go away so we can get our fair time on the clock to win more free bids.

Double click on several auctions and look for screen names of the winners who consistently overbid. If we see these screen names appear in our auction, we might want to stop bidding and save our bids for another auction.

Check the Winners’ List and pay attention to screen names that consistently win several auctions. We can tell who the power bidders are by looking at this list. If we see these screen names appear in our auction, we might want to save our bids to bid in another auction.

Read the bio information of other bidders who appear in our auctions. This bio information can tell us a lot more than you might think. I learned that military veterans who served in special units are often some of the toughest competitors because they were trained to have a “never give up” mindset. Grandparents are often the same way and can also be very determined and difficult to beat. Doctors, lawyers, engineers and retired CEOs often provide tough competition, too, because they can often afford to purchase larger bid packs.

By recognizing screen names of the strongest competitors on DealDash.com, we can save bids by not competing with the most difficult competitors to beat. Instead, we can save our bids for other auctions when the competition might not be so strong.

Why Busy People Love DealDash

DealDash.com is the perfect shopping site for busy people.

Busy people know that shopping online offers many advantages. Some of the advantages I enjoy most about shopping online are:

  • No Driving or Parking Hassles: I hate to deal with heavy traffic and crowded shopping malls, especially when it is difficult to find a free place to park.
  • More Shopping Hours: Shopping online is a 24-7 store that never closes.
  • Free Delivery: When I win an auction or BIN (Buy-It-Now) on DealDash, my purchase (regardless of size) is always delivered free-of-charge to my front door. When I’m shopping in a mall, however, I have to worry about whether or not a big, bulky item will fit in the trunk or backseat of my car.
  • Convenience and Comfort: I love the convenience and comfort of shopping online from the comfort of my home. I do not have to dress up or go out in messy weather. Instead, I can shop in a comfortable night gown or favorite pair of jeans, with no makeup, while enjoying a good cup of coffee.
  • Saves Time and Money: Shopping online saves time because it allows me to multi-task. All I have to do is place my bids in the automated bidder, BidBuddy, and go about my many other tasks like doing laundry or cooking dinner. It is also faster and easier for me to find what I need on DealDash than it is to find what I need in a store. By shopping online I also use less gas, and I often win expensive products on DealDash at a great price.

If you know some busy family members and friends, do them a favor. Introduce them to DealDash.com.

Top Priority: Happy Customers

The top priority at DealDash.com has always been the same — happy customers. I know because I’m one of them.

In its quest to keep its customers happy, DealDash does two things exceptionally well — provides superb customer service and welcomes customer feedback.

DealDash customer service representatives are easy to contact, and they respond in a timely manner. I appreciate this a lot because many other online businesses do the opposite; they strive to hide their contact information or put it in such small print that it is difficult to find. Not DealDash. They make it easy for customers to speak with real customer service employees to answer questions or to solve problems.

Regardless, if we have positive or negative feedback, DealDash welcomes every opportunity to hear from its customers. Therefore, do not hesitate to contact them. They want to hear what we like and/or what we don’t like. We can click on the big yellow button at the bottom of the home page that says “contact support” or we can go to: https://www.dealdash.com/support or send an email to: [email protected]

Popular New Products

I love to see all of the new products added to DealDash.com. I often learn about items I never before saw by reading the information in the description.

When new auction items are added, it does not take long to find out which ones are the most popular. Some of the more popular products are also more difficult to win, but nearly every auction will eventually sell low.

If we want to win a popular auction badly enough, we will want to place bids on that product each and every time it is listed. By placing bids into BidBuddy on a regular basis, we will be there at the right time.

Some popular new auctions that appear to be difficult to win are:

  • The deep tissue massages chair recliner, Buy It Now price $4,200. How would you like to come home from a hard day’s work to relax in a deep massage chair? It’s not surprising that this is a popular item.
  • The Wi-Fi connected vacuuming robot, BIN $499. Many serious shoppers place bids on this auction every time it gets listed. If we want to win this item, we will have to purchase a large bid pack or save bids for a long time. Planning ahead is important if we want to win this auction.
  • The cat velvet cushion cover, BIN $103. Many shoppers see something in that cat cover that they want to see in their homes. We have several cat lovers who want to win this auction, so if we want to win it, we must be consistent and place some bids on this cat cover every time it comes up for auction.

Regardless, if we bid to win any of these new items, it is always interesting to read all about them.

Out-Smart Other Shoppers

Would you like to know how to win more auctions on DealDash.com?

I have come to the conclusion that if we want to win more auctions, we simply have to out-smart other shoppers. You might have noticed that DealDash has many determined, consistent, loyal and bid-smart shoppers, so how can we out-smart them?

I have come up with a list of some shopping strategies we could do that might work:

First; do not do what everybody else is doing. What do I mean by this? For example, most shoppers place one bid at the beginning of every auction. Perhaps some shoppers place 25 bids at the beginning of every auction and other might place 50 or 100 bids. Why place the same number of bids as everyone else?  If we place an odd number of bids at the beginning of every auction, like 103 or 107 bids, it could make a winning difference.

Second; check the screen names of other players. If you recognize a screen name of anyone who consistently out-bids everyone else, it’s rather fruitless to compete in the same auction.

Third; check the “winners” to see if anyone recently won a large bid pack. If the same screen name of a shopper who won a large bid pack shows up, you might want to bow out of that auction until, or unless, that bidder goes away.

Fourth; count the number of bidders who are competing in the auction. If there are fewer than 30 bidders, you should consider continuing.

Just by following a few simple strategies like the above, we will save bids and might end up winning more auctions.

New Car Won with 663 Bids

Did you see the latest vehicles up for auction on DealDash.com?

So far, it appears the best deal anyone got on a new vehicle was the winner of the 2019 Nissan Rogue S — Intelligent AWD — Glacier White. That winner only used 663 bids and paid a closing cost of $670.88. Counting the cost of bids, the winner paid an estimated total of $803.48 for the $32,500 vehicle. What an awesome deal!

So far, seventeen customers already won a brand new vehicle, and twelve more new vehicle auctions still have active bidders. Ten of those twelve are already closed to new bidders; however, two cars are still open to new customers. They are:

  • 2018 Toyota RAV 4 LE FWD — Automatic super white; the current bid (as of this writing) is $13,227.50. The Buy It Now price is $28,000.00. The Toyota is a popular car, so this auction has been running for a long time.
  • 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SE — AWD — Symphony Silver; the current bid (as of this writing) is only $104.00. The Buy It Now price is $32,500.00.

If you need a new car, perhaps you could place some bids and be the next winner of a brand new vehicle for a fraction of the price.
