DealDash Tips: Abbreviations Explained


DealDash is easy to use but has some abbreviations that can be a little confusing for the first-time user. Here is a list of some of the common DealDash abbreviations and phrases.

When you think of a community you think of people who are similar in one way or the other, right? Maybe they live near each other, have the same hobbies, or a common background. DealDash is its own community with like-minded individuals who love deals and the thrill of an auction. And with any community, DealDash has it’s own little lingo, phrases, and abbreviations that other people might not understand at first. Here are some of the more common ones, from DealDash Tips blog.

No Jumper $3 or $5

DealDash auctions have a $3 or $5 No Jumper limit. This means that you have to get at least one bid in the auction before the auction reaches $3 or $5. The auctions are typically a $5 No Jumper, but there are days here and there that DealDash lowers the limit to $3. These are very popular days to bid. It will be marked very clearly on the main auction home screen when DealDash changes it to a $3 No Jumper instead of $5.

Buy It Now (BIN) the Auction

BIN, or Buy It Now is the most popular abbreviation that we will ever talk about on any of the DealDash blogs. BIN simply means that you have lost the auction that you have been bidding in and are willing to buy it for the retail price and receive all of your bids back from DealDash. You also get the luxury of free shipping as well, with tracking. The tracking doesn’t apply to gift cards, but to all other purchases with BIN, even the smallest or cheapest. After you have decided that you are going to BIN the auction that you have been participating in, then just hit the “Buy It Now” button that you will see either in your dashboard or on the auction’s page if the auction is still live. Once you have paid then the bids will be refunded immediately.

BookMarking an Auction

DealDash has so many auctions it’s hard to remember which auction is coming up. However, DealDash has come up with an easy way to remember what you wanted to bid on. When you are on DealDash and see an item that is coming soon you can bookmark it. Click your mouse on the small outline of a star in the upper corner on the right-hand side of the auction and you have bookmarked yourself an auction. The little star will turn solid, and the auction is now pinned to your DealDash home page.
