Shop Wisely on DealDash

Whenever we go shopping at a retail store, we never just grab the first item we see and immediately go pay for it. No, retail shoppers will often spend hours in a retail store looking for the exact item we want. Before we buy clothing, we check the size, select the color, check out the material and even read the washing and drying instructions.

Guess what!  When shopping on we can do the same things. If we are shopping for clothing, of course, we cannot actually try them on. However, we can pretty much do everything else we do when we shop in a department store if we simply learn to use everything that’s available.

Read the Descriptions

DealDash provides excellent descriptions and photos of all of their auction products. If we do not take the time to read those descriptions before we start shopping, we might not get exactly what we think we are getting. That happened to me once when I was a new member on DealDash. I did not read the description of a cell phone cover and it turned out to be the wrong size, so I ended up giving it away. However, that will never happen if we take a few moments to read the descriptions and sizes of the auction items before we start bidding on them. 

Sometimes it is also important that we pay close attention to where the item was made because sizes in the United States are not the same as sizes in Europe or China. DealDash usually provides size conversion charts so we can figure out the size we need. I found the conversion charts for shoe sizes works out just fine, but when it comes to women’s clothing there is often a huge size difference. For example, what might be an extra-large woman’s jacket made in China may be more like a medium jacket made in the United States. Perhaps most Chinese women are smaller boned and more slender than most American women so the sizes can be very deceiving.

The good news is that if we have any specific questions we can always contact customer service. DealDash customer service is just a click away and I always receive a response to my questions very quickly. In fact, I feel like DealDash customer service representatives are as close to me as my next door neighbor. Best of all, they are always happy to help any way they can.

Read Customer Reviews

It is also a very good idea to scroll down below the description and photos to read the customer reviews. We often learn a lot about a product by reading what previous winners have to say about various auction products. If a size runs a little too small or large they will tell us that. If there is a defect in a product the customers will usually tell us that, too.

That’s why I am glad that DealDash includes customer reviews. After reading them I often change my mind whether I do or do not want to bid on a product. You can also read real customer reviews about is Deal Dash legit.

If we take the time to use the information available to us on the shopping site it will be a win-win situation – We will get exactly what we want and DealDash will get what they want, too – happy customers.

Think Positive

Sometimes you end up going deep in an auction and don’t come out as the winner in the end. Here’s five uplifting and encouraging facts that might help you to think positive:

Fact No. 1

We can win auctions using only 1 bid. In fact, it recently happened to me.

I was so surprised to see on March 16, I won a 750 bid pack for only 1 bid and 13 cents. I admit it does not happen very often. I think it was the best win I ever had on a bid pack. I have seen other DealDash shoppers win deals like that every once in a while but it did not seem real until it happened to me.

Fact No. 2

Very few shoppers place more than one bid in the beginning of an auction. Most shoppers place only one bid in the beginning of auctions so they will not get locked out and they plan to come back later to place more bids and seriously compete for the win.

This can work to our advantage if we only have a limited number of bids. Perhaps if we open several bid packs and place from 3 to 7 bids on each, one of them could close early and we could slip through the cracks and win.

Fact No. 3

Shoppers get locked out for at least 30 days after winning an auction and that includes those shoppers with an endless number of bids. Once they win and get locked out from the competition it is easier for the rest of us to win with a limited number of bids.

If we look at the list of previous winners we can see who already won and is no longer able to compete in that auction. We can make our bids count more if we wait patiently for certain auctions to open after the power bidders are gone.

Awesome Photos

For only 34 cents and 22 bids, I won these Bolvaint-Steel Bee Cuflinks, which retails for $450.00. They will make a great gift for a special man in my life! Thanks DealDash!

Would you like to get a Facebook photo published?

All we have to do is submit a photo of ourselves with any auction product we won. If the item value is $200 or more we earn 200 free bids. If the item value is less than $200 we will earn 100 free bids.

To help everyone get motivated I decided to write this blog about how to take awesome photos that will grab everyone’s attention.

Get Help

Perhaps the first thing we should do is to get another person to help us because it can be rather difficult to take a good “selfie.” Taking our own photos with a cell phone seldom turns out as well as it should because we are rather limited trying to pose and take the photo at the same time.  

If we have another person to take the photo for us, we might come up with a much better result. I’m sure most of us can think of at least one friend or neighbor who can take fairly good photos.


The last thing we want is to take a fuzzy photo that is not in focus. Most cameras today have a setting that is specifically for automatic focus. However, we might have to press the shutter button down only part way and pause a few seconds to allow the camera to make its automatic adjustment before we press the button down all the way to take the photo.

Before taking the actual photo we plan to submit, it might be a good idea to take some practice shots, too.


While taking our practice photos it is a perfect opportunity to pay special attention to lighting. If we are using a flash, we may need less light and if we are not using a flash we may need more light. That will partly depend on how much light is in the room where we will be taking the photo. Some rooms might have enough windows that we have enough natural light.

Other rooms might not have enough light unless we turn on some lights. When we take photos with lights on it sometimes causes us to get “light spots” that show up in the photo. Sometimes we can correct that by changing where we are standing.

Video Challenge of the Week

How would you like to earn 200 free bids?  I love the many opportunities offers us to earn free bids, and here’s one I did not yet know about until now.

First we must go to Official YouTube channel of DealDash

This is a really fun site. Each week DealDash customers can create a small video that meets the DealDash “Challenge of the Week.” The challenges run from Monday to Sunday and alternate on a weekly basis. Most weeks the video of the week is called the “unboxing.”

To get the 200 free bids on those weeks we simply send in a video of us opening one of the boxes of something we won on DealDash, but we must follow a few simple guidelines:

  • A submission must not have been sent in already for that week. We have a limit of one submission per week
  • The customer must have purchased any bid pack within the last 7 days

Other Challenges of the Week

This is where this “You Tube” weekly challenge gets really fun and interesting. In the past, Jessica of DealDash has given DealDash customers the following video challenges for the week:
