Being a mother is no easy job. It involves working long hours for no money, and often involves doing thankless work: if I were to offer you a job with these benefits I’d expect to be laughed right out of the room. But despite the lack of benefits, mothers across the US do their best day in and day out to improve the lives of those around them. And not just their children and families, but their communities too!
But now Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s everyone’s chance to finally go to their Mom, their friends’ mothers, their daughters, and anyone else who proudly calls themselves “Mom” and tell them what a great job they’re doing.
Well what does all this have to do with DealDash? Besides having our own mothers, we know that lots of people are looking to do something extra special this year for Mother’s Day. Whether that means getting some nice gifts or going out for a nice meal with the Moms in your life, DealDash is making itself the go-to place for your Mother’s Day shopping. You can save big on some gift cards to spend on fun things to do during the weekend, or get a new laptop for only a few dollars! However you choose to recognize the Moms in your life, DealDash wants to help you make this Mother’s Day a great one. Here are three easy to follow tips to help you budget your Mother’s Day shopping on DealDash, and save big bucks while giving all the Moms in your life a nice thank you!
#1: – Create a budget and stick to it!
If you want to save money on DealDash, it’s important to know how much you feel comfortable spending, and then bid on auctions you know you can win within that budget. This starts with you. Take a look at the current promotion and decide how many bids you can buy, then find auctions you can win within that range. Don’t bid on bigger items unless you know that you can afford to see the auction all the way through. While you can never be 100% sure on what the final sales price of an item will be, you can do some research and learn how much the average sales price is and how much the item has sold for recently. You can use these as benchmarks and plan your bidding strategy accordingly, but don’t automatically assume that things will work out as you plan. Know your limits, and be prepared to stick with them!
#2: – Bid on items that you know you’ll get great value from!
Another way you can be sure to get a great Mother’s Day gift is by bidding on items you know you can get the best value from. Don’t just bid on something that you think someone will like, but bid on things that you know you’d buy anyway. This makes the “Buy it now” option much more valuable. For example, gift cards are almost as good as cash, they make great gifts, and they’re available in denominations that suit all budgets. Bidding on gift cards is a great way to do Mother’s Day shopping on DealDash. If you don’t win you can just buy the card and then you get all your bids back to use in another auction. Now that’s smart shopping!
#3: – Think About the People You’re Buying For First
There are certain things that almost everyone’s mother will love, but you’re not buying for almost everyone. Think about what the person you’re shopping for would really love, and try to find something a little unique to buy for them. Holidays like Mother’s Day tend to convince people to buy stereotypical gifts, and so traditional retailers will have sales on things that most people want. DealDash deals work a bit differently: if more people want an item then the auction will be more difficult to win. Try to keep this in mind when doing your shopping. If everyone wants to get someone special in their life an iPad, it might be a good time for you to bid on a Kindle. Smart DealDashers know that the best deals are the ones that other bidders are missing out on, and this gives you the perfect opportunity to win a fantastic gift for CHEAP!
These are just a couple of suggestions on how you can get a great Mother’s Day gift for someone, but there are tons of pieces of advice contained on old blog posts that you should check out. And don’t forget that pieces of advice like these are no substitute for experience and innovation, so don’t be afraid to experiment and apply some out of the box thinking!
