Time for a New Samsung?

If you’re like me, you go through phones pretty quickly. DealDash has phones you can bid on and win for a great deal.

I am a few steps behind on my phone right now – I currently have two that I am using – a Samsung Galaxy S5, and a Samsung Galaxy Note 4.  They are so similar, the Note 4 is just bigger and has the S-Pen which can be extremely helpful for a lot of things, especially for customizing photos. They are both so easy to use and even customize to your own preferences. DealDash also has the Galaxy S6 Edge and even the Galaxy S7 Edge up for bid. If you’d like to check out all of the Samsung phones that DealDash has available, just click on this link here. The Galaxy is a great product, and if you want more Samsung, they also make tablets.

The Galaxy Tab A is the newest and one of the best selling tablets out on the market today. There is both an 8 inch and a 9.7 inch screen available. My in-law’s have the 8 inch Tab A, and they absolutely love it. They mostly take it along to use to take pictures and videos of the grandkids, but my Mother-in-Law also loves to play games on it, and even chat with her friends! If you’d like to check out the Tab A, just click on this link here. If you find an item on the site that isn’t currently scheduled for an auction and says “Coming soon”, simply click the yellow “Alert Me” button. An e-mail will automatically be sent to you when the auction enters the queue. You will receive three e-mails for each alert: one when the auction is scheduled, one 8 hours before the auctions begins, and one more when the auction starts.

After you have gotten any of the Samsung Galaxy phones or tablets, go download the free DealDash app from the Google Play store. It’s very easy to use, and a lot of fun. After you give it a try be sure to go back and rate it 5 stars! Here is the link to go download the DealDash app for free.

 

If you’re looking to upgrade your smartphone or tablet DealDash and Samsung have you covered. DealDash holds multiple auctions of Samsung products daily, you could be the winner! Go ahead and check out some of Samsung’s newest products; And remember, if you don’t win the auction, you can Buy It Now (BIN), and get all of your bids back. Good luck everyone!

Resources for Winning at DealDash

There are so many resources out here to help you to win.  There are blogs on the DealDash Bidding Site which help you learn how to be a better player, and a better player wins more.  There is no doubt about that. I’ve seen inexperienced players, usually because they don’t know what their doing, lose over and over for the same reason, they are Stompers.  Stompers come into the auction and place rapid fire bids without using a Bid Buddy.

Which leads me to the next resource, the Bid Buddy.  This should be your go to resource to win.  The stomper wins a few in the easy category, but they aren’t going to win against the “Seasoned Pro” and there are a lot of them, it’s another testament to how awesome DealDash is, there are bidders who go back to 2009, 2010 and 2011 who are still bidding.  Many, many players from 2012, 13, 14.  I’m in that crowd.  I didn’t use the Bid Buddy at first, that didn’t last though, I quickly learned it was the best way to win.

Your Dashboard, the Dashboard provided by DealDash is a bunch of information about you and your bidding history all in one place.  You can see what you’ve won, when, how many bids you used, you can see who you played against.  The Dashboard is a fantastic resource and I’ve written blog just on the Dashboard,  follow my blog and use the search bar.

Other players mistakes help you win, you bet’cha.  This is a resource you will need to tap into over time.  There are a lot of players who only play the front of an auction.  Get to know who they are, then out last them!  The other time to get involved is in the middle of the night. Everyone has set their  Bid Buddy, you hope to outlast them, because you are awake!

Don’t underestimate the Winner’s List!  It’s a great resource to see who’s playing, who’s winning and what they are winning it for.  This is vital information to help you win.  Remember, you are winning, that means there is an element of failure.  You must be prepared to lose too, but!,…..if you use all the resources at your finger tips you will have better luck and win more auctions.

Low priced bids, no where else will you find such a great prices on bids, this is where the fun comes in.  It’s Entertainment Shopping, you “pay to play”,but the odds are in your favor at DealDash. Check the blogs and their Facebook Page to see what the current sale is.  You can also see the price of bids right on the top of the auction page.

Use what DealDash has given us to win and then go out and win!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Happy National Senior Citizen’s Day from DealDash

 

Tomorrow, August 21st is National Senior Citizen Day. I’m sure you know a few senior citizens, let’s take a moment to honor our elders.

Take a moment to think – who are some important senior citizens in your life? Maybe your parents or even your grandparents are still with us, perhaps you have an elderly neighbor, friend, teacher, or other person in your life that you would like to celebrate on Senior Citizen Day.

Do you know where the term “senior citizen” started? It was actually started during a 1938 political campaign as a euphemism for “elder person,” and is now known everywhere. Some dictionaries define the term “senior citizen” as a person over the age of 65.

Legally, the term senior citizen applies to the age at which pensions, social security or medical benefits for the elderly become available. Here in the USA, traditionally people have been eligible to retire with full Social Security benefits at age 65. Additionally, one can retire early at age 62 and receive a portion of their retirement benefits.

Now that we have defined the term, let’s think of ways that we can show appreciation to our oldest of friends and family. You could get them a card, of course. Everyone appreciates a card now and then. Flowers are always appreciated as well, especially by the ladies.

Another way that you could show your favorite senior how much you love them is to come over and cook dinner for them. How about bringing over some delicious steaks and grilling them for your parents or grandparents? DealDash always has some grills up for auction. If you want to see the items that are related to grills and grilling on DealDash just click here.

If you would really like to make a senior’s day, how about teaching them how to use DealDash? Most of the senior citizens that I know all own computers, smart phones, and even iPads. Why not show our favorite elders how to have fun and win wonderful deals on DealDash?

 

I hope that this article has given you some ideas on how to make a senior’s life a little brighter. Make sure that you have a plan in place for honoring your favorite seniors, and then check out DealDash. Remember, these senior citizens paved the way for us, so be kind to them. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

 

 

 

Observations, My Handy Tips at Deal Dash

After a couple of years shopping and bidding at Deal Dash, I have learned a few things through simple observation.  Here are a few of my handy tips which have helped me win many auctions.  These are good tips to play and win by!

  1. Use the “Who’s at their limit” tab. It costs one bid, but it is a great way to see who is out of the competition.  Over time, you will not want to play at all without this information.
  2. When two of the same items are on the market at the same time, one will go for much less than the other and it’s usually the second one to come up that sells first.
  3. Binning is so much better than over bidding.  I have watched people grossly overbid “just to win” they are senseless and foolish to play this way.  It took me a while to learn how to walk away, but it’s a great strategy.
  4. The same players, play the same way over and over.  So if you’ve noticed that one guy is always in the beginning of an auction, he is!  That’s his strategy.  In time, you will know just when he will back out.
  5. Then there are the jumpers, refer to #1.  You really need to see if a jumper is out of the field if you are “going to go for it”.  Some jumpers jump late and leave early and others never leave, let them have it, they’ll reach their limit and be gone!
  6. It’s not worth getting into a battle with a poor sport.  They won’t lose, and they’ll spend all your bids.
  7. Planning a win is better than a bunch of random bids for items you don’t need. Stay true to the items you actually want, especially if you are new to the site, get a feel for how the game is played before you “go for it!”
  8. The best way to win is to use your Bid Buddy, use your Bid Buddy , use your Bid Buddy!  You will earn free bids for the time you are high bidder and you will only place bids when it’s “your turn”. Random bidding costs money.
  9. New items go for less the first few auctions, then much higher for a while.  Then they level out again.  Keep your eye on your favorite item, when the stats start to decline, it’s time to get involved.
  10. Buy bids when they are on sale!!!! Deal Dash often has these outrageous sales and you can get bids for as low as .12 cents at time.  When the price hit .12, it’s time to invest in that one special item.

These are a few of my tips for winning, I’ve tried the alternative and have found these few observations to be pretty consistent and I play and win by them.

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!

Knowing When to Say “I Need to BIN.”

 

Sadly, we can’t all win every auction all the time. If we did, DealDash wouldn’t be able to stay viable for very long! Here is a simple guide to know when it’s time to say “I need to BIN.”

Unless you are just throwing a few bids on auctions here and there not really expecting to win, just hoping to get lucky, you most likely are bidding in an auction to win. No matter who you are, though, there will always be a person who either has more bids to use than you do, or are not as careful with their bids as you, or just someone who is just flat-out more stubborn than you are.

No matter who you are and how many bids you have available to use, realistically,  no one can win all of the auctions that they participate in on DealDash, or any other auction site. Luckily, DealDash has an amazing feature available to all of us called BIN, also known as “Buying It Now.”

 

Deal Dash wants all of their bidders to be happy and feel good about bidding, so they created BIN. With BIN, if you have bid too much and are not going to win you can purchase the item at the retail price that is listed on each and every auction page, and have all of the bids that you spent on the auction returned to your account.

Knowing when to BIN instead of continuing to bid is an important skill to cultivate – there are few things more frustrating than doing the math after the auction is over and realizing that you spent far too many bids and should have used DealDash’s BIN feature instead.

 

When you know your limits and stick to them, playing and shopping at DealDash is always an awesome experience that will help you win great deals or be able to buy items at a fair price and have them shipped to you for free. Good Luck and Happy Bidding, everyone!
