Any DealDash auction paid for on July 4, 2017, no matter what the auction end price, will be donated in full to the Disabled American Veterans organization as a thank you to those who serve.

The Disabled American Veterans is a non-profit charity that serves more than 1 million veterans of all generations and their families. Services include providing disabled veterans rides to medical appointments, assistance with benefit claims and resources to find meaningful employment.

So give thanks for liberty and freedom this 4th of July and know that you and DealDash will be working together to turn auction wins into donations for the American Disabled Veterans organization.

Not Winning? Then You Better Be BINning!

DealDash

We can’t win all of the auctions on DealDash every time. However, the BIN option is always there for you.

If you’re a frequent bidder on DealDash, then I’m sure that you’re familiar with the BIN (Buy It Now) option. However, if you’re a new player on DealDash, then you should quickly familiarize yourself with BIN, because it will save you money and bids on DealDash. Read on to learn more about Buying It Now (BIN) on DealDash.

What IS BIN?

BIN is the thing to do if you don’t win! If you don’t win the auction that you’re bidding on, that’s okay because you can still get all of your bids by buy Buying It Now (BIN). You can BIN any auction that you have bid on, even if you only put in a few bids or have bid way more bids than you should have. If you want to find your open BIN offers, open your dashboard. You will see the “Open buy it now offers.” You will see the name of the product, how long you have left to BIN the auction, and how many bids you will receive back when you purchase the item.

It’s easy to pay. You have a choice if you’d like to pay with credit, debit, or even Paypal, exactly the same as if you had won. Upon the completion of your payment, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away, or save them for another day.

Calculate the BIN Price

You might be wondering how you know when to stop bidding and BIN the auction. No problem! It just takes a tiny bit of math to figure it out. Just take the retail price of the auction that’s listed on every auction page, and divide it by the price you paid for your bids. This price could be anywhere between .12 and .60, depending on how much you paid. This will give you the exact number of bids that you need to reach the retail price of the item. Keep in mind, though, that you will also need to pay the final auction fee if you win. Sometimes DealDash offers half-off or even free auction wins. Keep an eye on the banner on the main DealDash page for the details.

 

 

Shipping and Tracking

No matter if you’re winning or BInning, DealDash offers free shipping on all items on the site. This includes the smallest jewelry items to the biggest furniture items. They all have free shipping and handling. Isn’t that awesome?! Every item will arrive brand new, in the original box, and covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty.

Smart Tips for Winning Bid Packs on DealDash

For the longest time, I was so intimidated to bid on Bid Packs that I would just avoid them at all costs. Over time, I gave it a try and after a few wins, realized that like any other auction on DealDash, winning a Bid Pack is as easy as winning most any other auction. All it takes patience, persistence and some great strategies.

Find Bid Packs

The place to specifically view all the upcoming Bid Packs DealDash is offering is under the banner on the main page. Click on Browse Categories and choose Bid Packs from the dropdown menu. DealDash offers Bid Packs in denominations of 100 to 8,000 bids with some “once per user” denominations.

Start Small

Starting off with a small bid pack is no different than starting off with the smaller auctions on DealDash. Winning your first small Bid Pack gives you the practice and confidence to go on to winner bigger Bid Packs.

Study the Competition

 Studying the competition allows you to identify experienced bidders, bidding patterns and average ending prices for Bid Packs. Some experienced bidders will be sure to win one Bid Pack in each denomination per week so take notes and be ready for your turn to bid!

Get In It to Win It

Once you’re in a Bid Pack auction, use the Winners tab to see if the bidders you are bidding against have recently won other auctions for Bid Packs within the past 24 hours. Bidders who have success in one category tend to stick with that category, so weigh your options.

Do the Math

 Figure the cost it would be if you were to buy the bids from the website.  Keep that figure in your mind as you bid. It’s a good idea to stick to a budget and pre-determining the number of bids you are willing to put into a Bid Pack auction. I generally stick to my budget without exception unless, of course, I am head-to-head with just one other bidder. Then I may invest a few more to see if I can secure the win.

Bid Packs Are Never a Loss with Buy It Now

 The beautiful thing about bidding on Bid Packs is that they are a smart investment to bid on especially if you plan on buying a Bid Pack anyway.  Winning one for pennies on the dollar certainly is more fun and cost-efficient, but you don’t always come out with a win. With Buy It Now, you recoup the bids you put into that auction AND get the bids!

 

Winning Bid Packs on DealDash is no longer the elusive goal. If I can win them, anyone can! Winning a Bid Pack is always one of my favorite wins because of the bargain value. I hope these strategies will help you to win your next Bid Pack on DealDash!  Good luck and happy bidding.

What Do You Dream About Winning on DealDash?

DealDashWhat do you dream about winning on DealDash? Is there something special that you would love to win?

What is your favorite auction to bid on when you’re using DealDash? Have you not been able to win it yet? It seems like there is always that one auction that you just can’t quite win. Or perhaps your problem is that DealDash isn’t offering that special something that you’re looking for. If you could bid on anything, absolutely anything, what would it be? When you dream about DealDash, what are you winning?

Just Keep Missing That Special Auction?

Does DealDash have what you’re hoping and wishing for, but you just haven’t won it yet? Some auctions such as jewelry auctions are run every day, multiple times per day. However, some auctions, especially for higher-end, more expensive products aren’t run every day. Sometimes it can be tricky to catch them. That’s why it’s smart to set up an alert so you will know when your dream auction is coming up for bid.

Setting Up an Alert

You might wonder how to use the “Alert Me” feature on DealDash. Well, it’s easy!  Just click the button that says “Alert me” and DealDash will send you an email when DealDash has scheduled an auction for your special dream auction item. DealDash will alert you when the auction is starting within a couple of days, and then again when the auction is starting within a couple of hours. They will send you these emails only if you request them, DealDash does not spam people.

Be Sure to Use Your BidBuddy

If there’s a special auction that you’ve been dreaming about, then the next time it comes up, you had better set an alert, then when notified, set up your BidBuddy. If this auction is something that is very important to you, then the BidBuddy is your go-to in this auction situation. You may input as many bids as you would like into the BidBuddy, and you may cancel them anytime as well. The BidBuddy is a must if you really want to win.

Requesting an Auction from DealDash

You’ve all heard me say this before, but the folks over at DealDash customer service are some of the friendliest people around. If you’ve missed your dream auction or DealDash hasn’t yet offered what you want, then shoot them a quick email! Let them know what you’re interested in bidding on, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw it come up in the DealDash roster shortly.

4th of July is Coming – Get Out the Grill

DealDashThe 4th of July is coming up in just a couple of weeks. Get the grills prepared for hot dogs and hamburgers!

The 4th of July is the best time to have a cookout with the family, play some games out in the yard, and grill up some fresh meat on your BBQ grill! After that, it’s time for some ice cream, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and then watch the fireworks when it gets dark out. All-in-all, the 4th of July is one awesome holiday! DealDash can help with some of the fun. Read on for more tips on how to make your holiday great.

Get Your Grill Ready. No Grill? No problem!

We are a couple of weeks out from the 4th of July, so there is still time to win some items on DealDash and have them delivered. Whether it’s a grill you need, or perhaps some deck furniture, DealDash has you covered with products and gift cards for auction. Now is the time to get everything prepared for your family cookout, picnic, or get together for the 4th of July. Do you have everything that you need?

Is your grill in good shape and working properly? You’re going to need a fully-functional grill with fuel if you’re having a barbecue this holiday. DealDash always has grills up for auction, as well as gift cards if you don’t see the particular one that you want. Lowes has an excellent selection of grills available, and DealDash often has Lowes gift cards up for auction. Maybe you already have your grill and just need some grilling accessories. No problem! DealDash has those as well.

Entertain Your Guests

Typically when you have a 4th of July BBQ you invite family, and sometimes even friends and neighbors. They’re not just there for the meat, they’re there for the fun and entertainment as well. Here are some ideas for yard games that you might want to have ready for your guests:

  • Badminton
  • Croquet
  • Cornhole
  • Horseshoes

And for the younger guests, there are plenty of things that you can have on hand to entertain them as well:

  • Bubbles
  • Sprinkler
  • Jumprope
  • Nerf Guns
  • Water guns
  • Kiddy pool
  • Small bounce house

Get Your Bids Ready

 

 

Be sure to stock up your bids (and your fridge!) for your Independence Day celebration, and then check out DealDash. Bid packs come in different amounts of bids. You can get a pack of 60, 300, 600, 1200, or 2400. The prices of the bids change daily, DealDash has different sales each day. Bids cost between .12-.60 per bid. The most common price for bids is around $.15-.17, so if you see them for less than that, you should take advantage of it and buy the largest bid pack that you can at that time.

Being an Intermediate Bidder on DealDash

DealDash

Being a newbie on DealDash is easy. Being an intermediate bidder can be a little trickier…

When you first open your account on DealDash and begin bidding you should get your first wins fairly quickly. When you’re a newbie and haven’t won anything DealDash typically adds in a few small auctions so you are only bidding against other newbies. Why do they do this? It’s so you can get a feel for how to bid and how the site in general works.

When you are first starting to bid it’s smart to start small with a $10 gift card or a small item so that you can see how the bidding process works. There is also a tutorial on DealDash so you can go through a pretend auction and see how it works. If you complete the tutorial you will also receive 10 free bids when you complete it for winning the mock auction.

What’s Next As a Bidder?

Once you’ve won some small auctions and have a good feel for how the site works, then you can move on to bigger and better prizes. How do you know when you’re ready to move on to bigger prizes? It totally depends on you! However, being prepared is a good way to win things big and small, so I would suggest that you start doing your research on not just the items but other bidders as well.

If you’re wondering how you can get more information on DealDash auctions, it’s easy. Anyone can get this information at any time, no matter if they’re bidding in the auction or just observing. Simply open up any auction page and it will tell you a lot of the information that you need to know. On the left side, from top to bottom you will see the BIN (Buy It Now) price, the previous winners and what the auction ended at, and then below that, you will see the bidders currently bidding on the auction. As they are bidding you will see each person’s avatar pop up, and their bidding bio, which is just a few sentences that they wrote about themselves.

Interested in the Money Back Guarantee?

If you’ve tried bidding as a newbie and have decided that DealDash just isn’t for you – no problem! DealDash offers a “No Questions Asked 100% Money Back Guarantee” on any bidder’s first bid pack purchase. If any bidder is unsatisfied with the DealDash website for any reason they are entitled to get their entire first Bid Pack purchase fully refunded.

It’s easy to be refunded, and there will be no hard feelings! Even after getting a refund you are still allowed to participate on DealDash – but there will be no more refunds on bid packs. You can email refunds@dealdash.com within 90 days of your first bid pack purchase and request the refund. The refund will be credited back to you in 7 days. The refund will be granted regardless of if you have won or lost auctions, or whether you have bids left on your account or not. Only 1 refund per person, no exceptions, sorry.

Thanks for Reading the Blog
