A cool and Green New Way to Get Around!

Did you see the new electric moped going up for auction for the first time on DealDash.com?

This e-moped has a BIN of $2,298.00 so new bidders will not be locked out until this item reaches $50.00. Therefore, even if you did not see it until now, you still might have the opportunity to get into this auction.

Say goodbye to the high cost of gas, air pollution and traffic jams. If you don’t live too far from work, it might be a perfect alternative to travel on nice-weather days as long as you do not have to drive on an Interstate or highway. Mopeds are usually street legal on all public roads other than highways, but it’s best to check your state laws.

A selection of cartoon mopeds and riders are displayed to show how fun it is to ride a moped!
Mopeds aren’t just fun, they are great for the environment, too!

This e-moped can go up to 38 miles on a single battery charge and can reach up to 19.8 mph. The fastest mopeds can go up to 40 mph. The rechargeable battery, which is included, is a built-in 48V 20AH lead acid battery and it can fully charge the moped in 10 hours.

In California, riding a moped requires both valid registration and an M1 or M2 license. If you’re a one-car family this e-moped could be a perfect second mode of travel to run nearby errands and make juggling one vehicle a little easier.

The riding comfort might surprise you because it comes with front and rear hydraulic shock absorbers, turn signals, headlights, rearview mirrors, a horn, a remote control, built-in alarm and locking storage compartment. For more details, see the description in the auction listing.

As a 74-year-old grandma living in a metropolitan area, I cannot see myself riding on a moped. However, with all these bells and whistles, if I lived in a small-town rural area I might want to try it. In fact, in some rural areas the home mailbox is sometimes located at the end of a very long dirt or gravel road. In that case, riding a moped might be an excellent way to pick up the daily mail.

History of MOPEDS

According to my research online, the first motorized scooter for adults was developed in 1913 and patented in 1916 by inventor Arthur Hugo Cecil Gibson. The first commercially created motorized scooter was produced in New York in 1916 and was called the Autoped. It was the first mass-produced gasoline-powered scooter on the market.

The four largest motorcycle markets in the world are in China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. India is home to the largest number of motorized two wheelers in the world and now has an estimated 37 million motorcycles and mopeds.

It is not clear if the acronym MOPED stands for Motorized Pedestrian, Motorized Pedicycle or Motor or Pedal Power.

MOPED can also stand for Ministry of Planning and Economic Development.

Bottom Line

I’m sure you can think of lots of different uses for a new e-moped like this, so make sure you get your bids in before you get locked out when this auction reaches the $50.00 “No New Bidders” limit.

You just might be the winner!

Shopping for Women’s Bags

Are you looking for the perfect bag (purse)? If so, you are shopping in the right place because DealDash.com usually offers a wide variety of bags to meet any need. I’m not sure if bag, purse and tote are interchangeable terms but to me they all mean about the same thing – the bag women take with them to hold their “go everywhere” items like money, keys, makeup and other essentials whenever they leave home.

A new bag always makes a nice gift because many women change purses as often as they change shoes. Perhaps you are shopping for a birthday or Christmas gift for your daughter, daughter-in-law, granddaughter or a friend. I won a bag that I gave to a friend for her birthday about five years ago and she still uses it as her main “go to” bag. Fortunately, I knew what kind of bag my friend would like. She said it’s the most practical and durable purse she has ever had.

A sleek handbag is always in style.

One thing I know nearly every woman looks for when shopping for a bag is a shoulder strap that either comes already attached to the bag or one that can be attached (hooked on) to the bag. Why? When we can throw our bag over our shoulder it leaves both of our hands free to shop with more vigor so we can spend more money. Isn’t that a good thing?  All kidding aside, most women, especially those who have young children with them, often need to have both hands free. Having a bag with a shoulder strap makes that possible, and many bags on DealDash do come with that option.

Other things women look for when shopping for bags are:

  • Style: Many women want their bag to have the right design, look and feel.  
  • Color: Most of us women want to have a variety of purses in different colors so we can match the color of our purse with whatever we are wearing. However, not all women can afford to have several bags, especially expensive bags. Women who can only afford one bag usually shop for a basic black purse because that works well with nearly anything we are wearing.
  • Durability: Most women want to find a bag that is well made and will not easily fall apart, so the materials it’s made out of might be very important to us.
  • Size: Most of us want our purse to be a specific size – not too small to hold certain items and not too large or too heavy if we have to carry our bag around for a long time.
  • Organization: Many of us want plenty of pockets inside and outside of our purse to make it easy to organize and quickly locate our cell phone, wallet, house keys, ID cards, airline tickets, sunglasses, comb and makeup.

Bags on DealDash

We can find a popular bag on DealDash now that frequently goes up for auction and fits all of the needs I listed above. This soft genuine leather purse comes in two shapes (a medium-sized oval shape and a slightly larger rectangle shape) and five colors (black, brown, navy, red and gray). Sometimes one color is easier to win than another more popular color. Based on the last 10 sales (as of this writing) I did the math for each color of the bags and was very surprised to learn the red, brown and gray bags sold for the most (about $10 each) the Navy was next (about $7 per bag) and the overall average of the black bag sold for the least (about $5 each). I would have guessed that the black bag would be the most in demand instead of the red.

These purses come with a shoulder strap that can be clipped on or off. The other straps are adjustable so we can choose to use these bags as a hand-held purse or fanny pack instead. All hardware comes in gold finish only and these bags have a BIN of $395.00.

If we need a bigger bag or a different style, all we have to do is check into DealDash on a daily basis because they frequently put a wide variety of other bags up for auction as well.

Have a great day and I’ll see you at the auctions!

Be a Race Car Driver

How would you like to have the experience of being a race car driver? Well, guess what? Now you might have the perfect opportunity to do just that and you have come to the right place to read all about it.

DealDash.com has a brand new auction for shoppers to experience being behind the wheel of a super race car on a track in Thornburg, Virginia. If you do not win this auction, you could BIN (Buy-It-Now) for $507.00.

Unfortunately, the first auction for this rare opportunity to “put the pedal to the metal” behind the wheel of a supercar and take three laps around a special race track is already up for auction and all new bidders have already been blocked. However, DealDash might hold more auctions like this one, so if you missed it keep your eyes open for another one.

The winner of this auction will start with a 20 to 30 minute classroom session. According to the DealDash description, the professional instructor will “go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles.” Following the classroom session, you will “be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!”

If you feel the need for speed this will be the opportunity for you to feed your craving. The car you will be driving can hit 60 MPH in just three seconds and reach top speeds of 200-plus MPH.

You will take the driver’s seat but your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time to “give you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of both the course and your supercar!”

Once in awhile you want to push the pedal to the metal!

Drivers must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. It’s not recommended for participants who are more than 6 feet, 3 inches tall or anyone who exceeds 350 pounds. Helmets will be provided. Also included in the cost is the minimum track insurance policy, but participants could upgrade the insurance for an additional fee at the time of booking. “Photos and video of your experience will be available for purchase at the track on the day of your experience.” The winning driver will be able to share this experience with family and friends who could see the action close up, but the maximum “ride along” participants is three persons. Pit passes are available on the day of the event for an additional $10 per person but anyone under age 12 is free.

According to the DealDash description all of the supercars are equipped with a semi-automatic transmission and drive just like your automatic car. However, if you know how to shift and have track experience and want to use the paddle shifters, let your instructor know and he or she will be happy to help you shift.

This auction does not include accommodations and other expenses such as flights to and from the location of the track, but the winner will receive a digital voucher for the experience itself.

For more information about possible changes or delays due to inclement weather, unexpected mechanical issues, COVID-19 safety rules in place or other details, see the complete DealDash description.

Brief History of Auto Racing

Frank Duryea won the first motor-car race held in the United States on Thanksgiving Day in 1895. This mechanic and inventor, along with his brother, designed their own “horseless carriage” for the race.

Enzo Ferrari, a young Italian car mechanic and engineer, is listed as the first race car driver in history. Ferrari’s first car race took place on Oct. 5, 1919, on a hill climb in Parma, Italy.

In the early 20th century, rich petrol heads would race their cars on Ormond Beach in Florida. The first car to break 100 mph in 1905 was a 90hp Napier owned by S.E. Edge. It was driven by Arthur MacDonald, a British man who took it to 104.65 mph over the measured mile.

The world’s fastest cars in the 1970s were:

  • 7 1970 Ferrari 365 GT (2+2): 156 mph…
  • 6 1971 De Tomaso Mangusta: 155 mph…
  • 5 1970 Chrysler Hemi: 155 mph …
  • 4 1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2: 152 mph …
  • 3 1970 Dodge Challenger: 146 mph …
  • 2 1971 Plymouth GTX 440: 145 mph …
  • 1 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6: 142 mph

In 1999 the world’s fastest car was the Lamborghini Diablo GT that reached 215 mph. 

According to my search, the new $1.9 million SSC Tuatara hyper car legitimately claimed the title as the fastest car in the world in early 2021 with a verified two-way average speed of 282.9 mph in Florida

If you have a need for speed, keep your eye open for another “ride of a lifetime” auction on DealDash.com.

2020 Holiday Season Pre-sale This Weekend

When I was growing up, my mother often said, “The early bird gets the worm.” We probably all heard that, but when it comes to shopping on DealDash.com I say, “Early shoppers get the bargains!”. As more and more people are shopping from home this holiday season, it’s good to plan forward. Shipping times should be taken into account and that’s why companies like DealDash start their 2020 holiday sale earlier.

Holiday season pre-sale on DealDash this weekend.

That’s right. It is not too early to start planning ahead and shopping for the holidays. By shopping now we will allow for enough shipping time that we will not have to worry about receiving our winning packages before Halloween or Christmas.

Whenever I get my holiday shopping done early, it is much easier to just relax and enjoy the festivities later on. Of course, we might not have many festivities this year because of Covid-19 (but we shouldn’t let that stop from helping those around us). However, that’s all the more reason why we should do most of our shopping online from the safety of our home.

The Best Holiday Pre-sale of 2020?

The most exciting news is that DealDash is already planning ahead for the holidays and one of its promotions is already happening this week! First, DealDash will offer a new “Carry forward offer.” You get a special one-time coupon of 11-cent bids that we can use the following week of Sept. 28 if you buy 5000 bids this week!

On the weekend of Sept. 26 and 27, DealDash will kick off a huge “2020 Holiday Season Pre-Sale” that we will not want to miss because this is the big one that promises to be a real winner. This event will feature the following:

  • Both days we will be able to buy bid packs for only 11-cents per bid, and I think this is the first time DealDash ever did this on consecutive days. At this “low as it will go” price, we might want to purchase enough bids to last for the rest of the year and save a lot of money in the long run.
  • Both days DealDash will double the number of auctions going live. This is awesome! More live auctions at the same time makes it much easier to find one with fewer competitors that we can win.
  • Both days DealDash will double the “time as highest bidder multiplier.” This means our green line will move to the right a lot faster so we can collect our free bids much sooner.
  • Both days DealDash each auction that starts between 3 and 4 p.m. (Pacific Time) will have a duplicate auction starting at the same time. I don’t remember seeing this auction before but that means we can choose the auction of our choice with the least amount of competition.

We can also expect to see some brand new auction items as well.

Gift Ideas

I have already found some new auction items on DealDash that would make awesome gifts. Here are some products that I know would be a big hit with family and friends on my shopping list:

  • Play station gaming console
  • Camera with an interchangeable lens
  • Electric wine opener
  • Luxury sheet set
  • Pet bowl set
  • Scarf
  • Fitness activity tracker
  • Variety of watches
  • Rugged backpack
  • Kitchen pots and pans

I can hardly wait to see the new holiday items that DealDash will soon add to its inventory of popular and high quality products.

Remember to mark your calendars now for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 26 and 27 2020 for the huge DealDash promotion of the year event because you will not want to miss it.
