Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as DealDash Bidders

Joan Vith DealDash Bidder

By Joan Vith

While vacationing the past few days I was thinking about writing a whimsical take on the different DealDash bidders we see on the best penny auction site I happened to stumble upon some really great statues of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and thought I’d write an article comparing the seven dwarfs (Doc, Sneezy, Dopey, Sleepy, Bashful, Grumpy, and Happy) with the different bidding behaviours and traits of DealDash shoppers.

For your entertainment here’s the original movie trailer from the original 1937 Walt Disney masterpiece Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

I had originally stopped at the gas station, to use the Subway gift cards I won on Deal Dash for a quick sandwich, while we were on the go when I saw these statues. I thought about how I could describe our fellow DealDash bidders and compare them to Snow White’s seven dwarfs. Here’s what I came up with…

Doc Dwarf from Snow WhiteDoc

The meticulous bidder who watches, waits, and examines each auction he bids on. He wins some, he loses some.

Sneezy Snow White DwarfSneezy

He bids, then bids again, then stops.  Hi ho, he bids again, then bids again, and again, then stops and never comes back into the auction again.

Snow White and Seven Dwarf DopeyDopey

He bids, he slaps, he bids, he bids, he slaps, he uses all his bids and never wins.

Sleepy Snow White DwarfSleepy

He bids, sets his bid buddy, leaves the room, and returns to find his auction has sold while he was sleeping!

Snow White Dwarf Bashful Bashful

This bidder bids once or twice and then is never heard from again.  Perhaps too shy to bid again?

Grumpy Snow White DwarfGrumpy

This bidder bids on several auctions all day. He loses most, because he has not stayed focus on one auction and spreads his bids too thin. Losing his auctions has cost him so many bids he just gets grumpy and will probably not even use the Buy it Now feature DealDash offers for bidders to get their bids back.

Happy Snow White DwarfHappy

Last but not least, this is my favorite of all because he has watched, listened, and learned how to play smart on DealDash. Due to this he gets to see “Congratulations!” and fireworks regularly as he wins auctions! What a happy bidder this little dwarf is! He has reached that place we all want to be and that is on the winners page on Free shipping makes him happy too, and since he bought all his bids on sale, he knows he got the best deal of all.

Which of the seven dwarfs would you say you are? Please comment below and if you are interested in reading more of my bidding tips, here’s my article DealDash in review – understanding and winning auctions.

Happy bidding, and good luck in the Deal Dash auctions!

  1. I would have to say I relate most with Dopey as I NEVER win as bad as this ‘diamondblue’ would like to. +1

    • Hi Karen, we’ve returned bids to your account for a second chance since you have not yet won an auction. Good luck and remember if you don’t win you can always Buy it Now and get your bids back + the item with free shipping!

    • Hang in there Karen, it is not easy, but if you read all the hints and tips puts on their blog your chances for success are right there! Happy bidding!

  2. Thanks for your comments! I can be Sleepy too, but mostly, I am Happy! Love the fireworks when I can win an auction!

  3. Doc is most like me. I try to figure the right time to get in on the bidding and figure out how many bids to put in etc.

  4. Joan,
    What a creative idea! I could recognize all seven of those personality types on, too.
    I think I would be “Sleepy.” Most of the time when I lose an auction it is because I often fall asleep at my computer.
