My Tips for Using the BidBuddy

“What’s a BidBuddy?” you might ask on your first day of discovering DealDash – The secret is in the name. It’s your new best friend.

This (hopefully) helpful article is for those of you new to DealDash who aren’t yet familiar with the BidBuddy. It might be mystifying to you to see people that seem to be bidding on DealDash around the clock. “When do they sleep?” you might ask. You also might be curious why certain groups of bidders on auctions seem to place their bids in the same order every time, with 9 seconds in between. The answer to both of those questions is by using the BidBuddy!

The BidBuddy is an automatic and free to use bidding tool used on DealDash, and is by far the most important secret of how to win auctions. Here’s a few different ways that the BidBuddy can help users win auctions:

You are in charge of telling the BidBuddy to use a pre-set number of bids in each auction. Once you have inputted the number of bids you would like to use, the BidBuddy will automatically place your bids before the bid clock counts down to 0. When you set your BidBuddy you’re guaranteed to get your bids in no matter how many people are in the auction, and no matter what their bidding style. You’re free to leave the computer and do other things while the BidBuddy will automatically start bidding for you, you don’t even have to have your computer on. It’s extremely handy for people who don’t know if they will have access to a computer or smartphone when the auction begins. The BidBuddy will bid up to the number of bids that you booked, and you can adjust that number up or down anytime that you like.

If more than one bidder has a BidBuddy set on a certain auction then the BidBuddies will take turns placing the bids. Most bidders know this and they look for these patterns, and if they see more than a few BidBuddies taking turns they’ll know that they won’t win until the BidBuddies have run out of bids. You might want to try putting in just 2 or 3 bids into your BidBuddy and watching the auction, when you see a pattern you can tell whether other bidders have their BidBuddies set up. Almost all auctions on DealDash are won using the BidBuddy, so try using these tips to help you win more auctions, the BidBuddy will never let you down, even if the power in your house goes out the BidBuddy will still faithfully bid as many bids as you have “fed” it before the auction.

I hope this helped some of you newer DealDashers! If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!




Top 4 Secrets of a Successful Bidder

If you’re just getting started with DealDash you might be interested in learning my Top 4 Secrets of a Successful bidder. Read on, but keep it a secret, shhhhhhhh.

Secret 1 – Watch, don’t bid…YET. If you’re new to DealDash you might be amazed at some of the awesome deals that people seem to get purely by chance. The bidders might make it look easy to win a Nooka Zem Zoo Night Steel Watch valued at $325 for just $2.23, but I can almost guarantee you the winner of this auction watched and studied many Nooka watch auctions before deciding to bid on this particular one. For example, if you were to look up the upcoming Nooka watch auctions you might want to pick a few offered at different times of the day and see what time the watches tend to end. Morning? Evening? Late night? Take your time, study, watch, then bid!

Secret 2 – Use your BidBuddy. If you have just signed up for DealDash and haven’t used the BidBuddy yet I strongly encourage you to give it a try. It’s really simple to use, each auction page has the bid button that says “Bid Now” and the BidBuddy, which is below the bid now button. Click your mouse on the white area and enter the number of bids you want to use and click “Book a BidBuddy” your BidBuddy will now be set and you can even turn off your computer and the BidBuddy will take care of everything. The BidBuddy will bid up to the number of bids that you booked, and you can adjust that number up or down anytime that you like. 95% of the auctions that I have personally won have been using the BidBuddy.

Secret 3 – Don’t spread yourself too thin. I personally suggest not bidding on more than 2 or 3 auctions at a time, especially if you are actively bidding on them and not using your BidBuddy. Auctions can change so quickly, going from 5 active bidders or more down to the final 2 in a matter of moments. If you miss your window to jump into the auction you might not get your chance because someone else might be seeing the “Congratulations!” on their screen while you are still scrolling through the other auctions that you are interested in.

Secret 4 – Get free bids by posting photos on social media. After you have won and received your auctions you can get free bids by just taking a photo of yourself holding the item and posting the picture on social media with a quick message such as “I got this -name of item won here- @DealDash for -number of bids used- bids & $ -final auction price-. I love it! #DealDash also gives #FREE shipping!” Here’s a link to get the full details on how to get even more free bids, it’s easy to do and is a great deal.

I hope this helped some of you newer DealDashers! If you’re interested in reading even more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!




How DealDash Helps My Family

Deal Dash has been influential in my life; especially how it has allowed me to help get new clothes for my granddaughter.

Because my daughter is a single parent and children grow so quickly, it can sometimes be a challenge to keep up with their fast growth and continuously buying new clothes. I do my best to help out and therefore try to win gift cards to TJX, Gap, Macy’,s and her most favorite store.. Justice!

The savings I get on the gift cards by shopping on DealDash afforded me to buy her the warmest winter parka, extra jogging outfits, hats, and more. Since we live in the Northeast, kids need everything to be warm in the winter and clothes can be so expensive! Deal Dash has become my clever way to save money and give a little something extra to my granddaughter.

When I first started bidding on I took the time to stay the course and try to win. Sometimes, auctions would take a long time but as a Grandma, I’ve got a lot of patience and I will do anything to help out. I took the time to read the blogs and get bidding tips like Top Tips, Winning Strategies And Ways To Get Free Bids. By learning how to play and utilizing the opportunities DealDash offers, I was able to make some really great deals! For me shopping on DealDash has made a real difference in taking some of the financial stress off my daughter by helping out and taking my granddaughter shopping. Besides, what little girl doesn’t love new clothes?

Like most senior citizens, I am on Social Security so I am limited on spending. My granddaughter is 8 years old and understands the concept of Deal Dash. I must say she is one of the best dressed and of course always excited to see those gift cards! Thank you Deal Dash… but are you ever going to bring back the Justice gift cards? ;)

Sincerely, Grandmadebbie

How to get Free Bids on

As you may know, in order to participate in the auctions on, it’s required to have Bids. Bids are your source, your ammunition to win auctions so to speak. Bids on DealDash allow you to shop in a fun new way and save money when you win auctions. However, the cost of Bids can add up quick with the normal cost per bid at 60¢. This equals $6 for 10 Bids, $30 for 50 Bids, $60 for 100 Bids, etc. Just multiple the price per bid times quantity of bids and you get the full price. For example $0.60 x 100 Bids = $60.00. 

One of the best parts about DealDash compared to other pay-to-play shopping websites is that DealDash offers regular Bid Sales where Bids sell for as low as 17¢ or 16¢… sometimes even as low as 15¢ per bid! $0.15 x 100 Bids = $15.00. 

Halloween is this week so in the spirit of spooky critters and witches brew; DealDash has a limited time Bid Sale where the price of Bids is only 16¢ per bid. But that’s not all… there is also a limited time event where “All Auction Wins are Free”. What does this mean? During All Auction Wins are Free promotions, DealDash will pay the final sales price when you WIN an auction during this sale.

So for example… see these winners. User: Annoying1 did not have to pay the final sales price of $12.66 for the $1,000.00 Amazon gift card they won. They only had to pay for the cost of used Bids which was 157 Bids. Same thing goes for user: jana81557, they did not have to pay the final price of $8.27 for the $500 Chevron Gift Card they won; just the cost of bids which they used in that auction which was 52 Bids. As you can see, those are some pretty great deals, even if the bidders paid the full 60¢ per bid price, however it’s likely they even paid much less and also received FREE Bids!

So, the question remains… How to get Free Bids on Well, this is pretty simple. One way is to just simply bid in the auctions.

Free Bids
When the button turns green, you can claim free Bids.

The more you bid in the auctions, the more time you collect as highest bidder. The more time you collect as highest bidder, the more free Bids you earn. This is integrated into how DealDash works so there’s nothing you need to do but simply bid in the auctions and press your Collect Free Bids button when it turns green.

However, the number 1 way to earn free Bids on is to show off your winnings by taking a picture of yourself showcasing what you won and post that to the DealDash Facebook page. By doing this you can collect up to 200 Free Bids every week! Plus, you are entered into a weekly contest where the best photo of the week is selected and rewarded with a $500 gift card of choice.

3 Tips for Earning Free Bids on

DealDash loves its bidders as much as bidders love winning fantastic deals in the auctions, which is one of the reasons why DealDash is always looking for ways to make shopping online cheaper and more fun. One of the things that bidders seem to love the most are the different ways DealDash gives them opportunities to earn free bids, which helps them save even more money. While more experienced bidders have learned to use these to save big bucks, some bidders don’t even know about them. So here’s a quick breakdown on the best ways to earn free bids to use on DealDash!

#1: The Time as Highest Bidder Meter

The “Time as Highest Bidder Meter” is a small bar sitting at the bottom of your screen when logged in to your account. As you bid in the auctions, it calculates how much time you spend as the highest bidder in a particular auction. Once it fills up, you can click on it to claim free bids. The amount of free bids you can earn starts small, but it increases as you move up to higher levels!

This basically rewards bidders for spending more time as the highest bidder in an auction, so it’s a great way to earn something just for participating in an auction.

#2: Facebook Promotions

Almost everyone has a Facebook account nowadays, so it’s really easy to get free bids just by participating in the DealDash community. If you post pictures of your wins on DealDash’s Facebook page, you’re given free bids to use in the auctions. Not only that, but once a week the person who posts the best picture wins a free $500 gift card (vendors include Amazon, Walmart, and more)! This is a great way to subsidize bidding, and you can earn as many as 200 (list price for 200 bids is $120) bids just for posting.

#3: Special Offers

DealDash runs regular promotions where bids are sold at an incredible discount, but they also run promotions for its community that aren’t featured on the website. If you’re a regular bidder and want to get the most bang for your bucks, it’s important that you keep an eye on DealDash‘s various community pages. In addition to our incredibly popular Facebook page, you should also keep on eye on our Pinterest site, Google+ page, and of course this blog.

As already mentioned, DealDash is always thinking up new ways to reward bidders, so keep your eyes and ears open and don’t hesitate to leave your own suggestions in the comments!
