To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finland, DealDash decided to donate all proceeds from auction wins paid on December 6th, 2017. Many of you paid for your auction wins on that date, and thanks to all of you we were able to collect $9,819.44 for the donation!

DealDash has offices in Helsinki, Finland, and Minnesota, USA, and wants to contribute to the local communities. That is why, on special occasions, DealDash donates the final auction sales prices to various charities, that are important locally, both in the US and Finland. For example, on September 10th 2017, DealDash donated $8,900 to the American Red Cross relief fund to help people affected by hurricane Irma.

We appreciate the help of everyone who took part and helped us support the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare.

THANK YOU!

The DealDash Team.

Step-by-Step DealDash Tutorial Instructions

DealDashIt’s DealDash tutorial time, ya’ll! If you haven’t taken the tutorial, it’s time!

You can take the DealDash tutorial at any time, you don’t have to be a “brand newbie.” Heck, I didn’t take the tutorial until I had been bidding on DealDash for 2 years or so. DealDash has made the process of learning how to use the site so much easier and more fun with the tutorial. You can see how the auctions work before you try to jump in yourself. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to use the DealDash tutorial.

Where is the Tutorial?

The tutorial is located in the in the “Help” section on the site. There are lots of helpful things there, but the tutorial is what we are concentrating on today. Look at the picture below, and you will see a message welcoming you to DealDash.

DealDash Tutorial

Learn How to Bid

You can use the tutorial to win a bid pack of 10 bids. You will see that your bids are being used to participate in this tutorial, but DealDash will return them to you after the tutorial, and you will get to keep the bid pack of 10 bids that you will win playing against the computer as well. Like I said, you can take the tutorial at any time, so if you’re low on bids and haven’t taken the tutorial you should do so to get your 10 free bids.

What Does the Tutorial Do?

The tutorial is like a game against the computer. You will see other people participating in the pretend auction, but these aren’t actually real people. They are just there to show you how other people might act when you are playing against humans. The first thing that the tutorial shows you how to do is bid by placing single bids with the “Bid Now” button.

DealDash Tutorial

The Tutorial Teaches You About BidBuddy

This tutorial will also teach you how to use BidBuddy. The BidBuddy is used more often when bidding in auctions than placing single bids, so it’s a good thing to familiarize yourself with. The tutorial can help you do that.

DealDash Tutorial

After Winning…

After you win the auction in the tutorial you will get a glimpse of what happens when you win a real auction. The first time I won a real auction I was a little confused as to why there were fireworks on my screen. The tutorial will show you exactly what to look for.

DealDash Tutorial

BIN it…

One important thing on DealDash that the tutorial doesn’t show you is how to do a BIN (Buy It Now). This is an important thing to know because if you don’t win the item you’re bidding on you can buy it at retail price and get back all of your bids.

When you BIN the item for the retail price you get every single one of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. When you don’t win an auction it just makes sense to do a BIN and receive your bids back. You are the “winner” of the auction in the tutorial, so that’s why it doesn’t show you how to BIN.

Having FUN FUN FUN on DealDash!

DealDash

Let’s have some fun on DealDash today, bidders. Read on for some tips and tricks to get you going.

Welcome to the most fun bidding site around! DealDash is here to entertain you and help you have a fun time bidding. How does DealDash offer you a fun experience? Read on to get more information and some tips on how to use the site to your best advantage.

What Fun Are Bids?

There are lots of fun to be had when you’re thinking about DealDash bids. What’s the most thing that you can think of when you’re imagining DealDash bids? FREE bids, of course! If having a brand new bid pack of DealDash bids is fun, then having a brand new pack of FREE bids is twice as fun.

You can obtain free bids from DealDash in quite a few different ways. One example is to participate in DealDash contests. There is currently a contest that asks bidders to send in their “Best Idea” for DealDash, and you can win free bids by sending in the best idea of the month. Isn’t that cool?! So get thinking, bidders, you could be the next winner.

You Know What’s Fun? Promotions!

DealDash often runs special promotions. Not every single day, but at least a few times per week. You need to check every day to see if one of these great promotions is running.

  • 50, 75, or 100 auctions start at once. During this ultra-fun promotion, many auctions start at the exact same time. This promotion often takes place during a holiday weekend, but it has happened other times as well, so be sure to check in with DealDash often to see if this promotion is running.
  • FREE auction wins. A free auction means that there is no final auction fee that needs to be paid. You will just be charged .01 as a processing fee.
  • Half-priced auction wins. A half-priced auction means that whatever the final auction fee is listed, it will be half of that final price.
  • No Jumpers $3. This promotion doesn’t let any new bidders join the auction after the auction price has hit $3. This promo means less competition in individual auctions. This promotion is fun because with a little persistance you can get some very high value items for less money than usual.

DealDash Resolutions – 2018 Edition

 Before we know it, the holiday season will be just a blur in our rearview mirrors and a new year will be upon us. In the new year, I’ve decided to take a look at my past year and make a few new DealDash resolutions. Take a look at how I’m re-vamping my DealDash style in 2018:

 

  1. Implementing new strategiesThis one is difficult for most of us, myself included. I have a certain way that I bid and I am comfortable with that. In 2018, I’m making the resolution to try new strategies like: trying a different day and time, bidding mid-auction, or heaven forbid—late auction! You never know what will work and when. You just have to give it a try.

 

  1. Standing strongExperienced bidders can be very intimidating but statistics show they don’t win all the auctions they bid on. Are there a few that seem to? Yes. Here’s the thing: More times than I can recall I have seen experienced bidders jump into an auction late and I will exit the auction almost immediately because the chances of me winning against a big bidder are usually slim to none. However, I have also watched these experienced bidders then mysteriously pop back out of the auction after just a few bids, and the other person wins. Silly me—I should have stayed in the auction and not been so intimidated. Lesson learned. I won’t be as intimidated in 2018.

 

  1. Investing more bids – No one likes to spend a ton of bids because bids cost money. I try to limit myself to a certain number of bids on each auction, depending on the value and popularity of the item. In 2018, I’m going to go a little bit further and see if increasing my bids results in more wins.

 

  1. Sticking to the No. 1 RuleOnly bidding on things you really want to win is the No. 1 rule at DealDash (other than always using BidBuddy, that is). It’s hard to do because it’s always nice to win an item to exchange to bids and have more bids in your bank. But what if your investment in winning items to get more bids fails and you waste your bids and then don’t have the bids you need to win the items you really want? That is a bummer and I’ve done it myself. But in 2018, I’m really making an effort to stick to things I really want to win 80 percent of the time.

 

  1. Shake things up– I have found that it is true with me and others that we are creatures of habit. We stick to the same categories and don’t deviate much from our “norm.” If we have success with bidding on items from the jewelry category, that is where we tend to stay. You will find by watching other bidders that they also tend to stick to similar categories: bid packs, handmade bags and the like. In 2018, I’m breaking out of my norm and trying my hand at other categories I have yet to try.

 

  1. Preparing for the holidays earlierThis year I’m starting in January. That’s right. By October 2018, I will have effectively stocked all the Christmas gifts I want in the closet by winning a few bids a month and putting those items away for holiday gift giving. The early bird gets the DealDash stash.

 

I hope you have some great DealDash resolutions of your own for 2018 and hope you are wildly successful in your auction bids.

Four Things to Remember and One Thing Never to Forget

While Shopping for Holiday Gifts on DealDash

I will admit that I have been winning a few items a month to stash away for Christmas gifts for the past few months. Even though I pretty much have what I need for gift-giving, it’s almost impossible not to see something new on DealDash that catches my eye that I’d love to give as a gift. Below is my list of things to remember while shopping for holiday gifts on DealDash:

Read Item Descriptions – Here you can find out size dimensions and materials and other helpful information on the items you’re bidding on. Click on additional photos to see greater detail of each item and to determine if they are packaged in a box that would be great for gift presentation.

Up Your Strategy When Bidding – Holiday season is the busiest shopping time of the year, whether you’re shopping in the stores, buying online or bidding on DealDash. Know that there are other like-minded folks like you who are also trying to snag a great deal. Plan accordingly through increased number of bids, different days and times when  you bid or other strategy.

Utilize BidBuddy – It never fails that whenever I’m trying to keep an eye on my bids and really watch the progress and action of an auction, I get called away or distracted. There have been several times when stepping away for a few moments  cost me a win. Now I always use BidBuddy and top off if I know I have to step away.

Utilize the Buy It Now Option – It’s sometimes hard to stick to the No. 1 rule on DealDash and that is to only bid on items you truly want to win. One of the reasons behind this rule is that if it’s an item you truly want and you happen to lose the auction, you can always use the Buy It Now option, pay retail price for the item and get all the bids you placed into the auction back into your bid bank. It’s a complete win-win for bidders.

…And Never Forget – DealDash has amazing items and opportunities to win those items every single day of the year, 24 hours a day! If you don’t win the items you want in time for Christmas this year, just put them on your list and start winning a couple of items a month and to put away for next year’s holiday season.

Happiest of holidays to all and happy bidding on DealDash!
