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

 

I hope that you have enjoyed bidding on DealDash as a newbie and will continue on to being an intermediate bidder. I hope that this article has been helpful for you. Go check out the site and enjoy being an intermediate bidder. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

How to Navigate & Win When 50 (or More!) Auctions Start at the Same Time on DealDash

 

It’s one of the most exciting promotions DealDash offers—those times when they offer 50, 75 or more auctions that start at the same time! When I first started bidding, I avoided these times at all costs. It was overwhelming and intimidating to me—but no more! Below are a few helpful tips to help you navigate the waters of this truly amazing promotion and get the win!

Preview Items in Advance & Set Bookmarks

Check out the items up for auction. Make note of any items you really want to win and focus on those. Use the bookmarking feature to make sure you have those items at the top of your page—front and center—and don’t miss those auctions!

 

Don’t Be Put Off by the Number of Bidders

 

The competition is high during these promotions—or at least it might seem that way. Many bidders want to get in on the action and take a chance on winning something for a few bids. Therefore, they place one to a handful of bids to make sure they get in on an auction early in case it goes over the $5 cutoff. Patience is key. Do not be intimidated by the increased number of bidders that sometimes happens during these types of promotions.

 

Be Aware of Unique Items Being Offered

 

During these promotions you will sometimes see unique items that do not appear in the regular DealDash rotation. This may include an item you always wanted to win but don’t see much anymore, so now could be your time! Make note of these seldom-offered items if they are something you’d like to bid on. Competition on these types of items could be high or low. If you’ve got the bids, take the chance!

 

As Always, Use Bid Buddy

 

Bid Buddy on DealDash is truly a bidder’s best friend. And there’s simply no easier way to stay in the game during a promotion when multiple auctions start at the same time. If you’re getting in on multiple auctions at the same time, I’d recommending adding a few extra bids to each auction for a cushion.

 

Check on Your Auctions as they Happen…or Not!

 

I’m an auction watcher. If I can’t dedicate the time to watch my auctions as they are happening, I rarely bid. But that’s just me. I like to have the option of backing out of an auction in the moment but there are some who are more comfortable setting their bids and walking away. Checking on auctions later allows you the great surprise of a win and the peace of mind that you’re not stressing over your bids in the moment.

 

Here’s hoping these tips for navigating the Multiple Auctions Starting at the Same Time promotions help you to win something great!  Happy bidding!

Does DealDash Differ?

DealDashIf you’ve bid on other sites, you know DealDash is different. Here are some ways that DealDash is amazing.

Customer Service is Top Notch

I have been bidding on DealDash for years, and I have had very few problems. However, no website is perfect, so I have occasionally had to email customer service for one thing or another. For example, once I had an item arrived damaged. I’m not sure if it had been damaged in transit or what, but regardless, it wasn’t in “100% new and factory-fresh” condition, so I emailed customer service. They emailed me back within just a few hours and arranged an exchange for me. There was no fuss, no hassle, and no pressure.

DealDash Won’t Telemarket You

Speaking of pressure, there is another entertainment bidding site out there that relies on high-pressure sales techniques for their bids. I had signed up for them around the time that I had signed up for DealDash, to see which site I liked better. Well, this other site included a space for a phone number that was required, so I put it in. They called me within moments of me signing up and tried to pressure me into buying $1,000 worth of bids on the spot. When I said “No thanks, I’m not sure if I’ll like your site or not.” they kept trying to convince me. It was like a telemarketing call, it was awful. I ended up hanging up on him.

DealDash would never do that. As I’ve said before, I’ve been with them for years, and the only time that they have ever called me was for a survey, and they emailed me first to ask if they could call me. And when I was on that phone call with DealDash there was absolutely zero talk about trying to get me to buy bids, it was just a customer satisfaction survey which I was happy to participate in.

Free Shipping for WINs and BINs

Unlike those other bidding sites, DealDash offers FREE shipping on every single item, no matter how big or how small. That is one of the reasons that I originally thought that DealDash was much better than some of the other bidding sites. Other entertainment shopping websites offer free shipping on just gift cards, or small items and have excessive “handling charges” on other items.

Did you know that some of the other sites even charge to ship gift cards? To ship a single gift card with a receipt in an envelope should cost 1 stamp. If you take into account the company’s cost of paper, envelope, and stamp I could agree with them charging around a dollar to ship a gift card. However, some sites are charging upwards of $2 to ship a single gift card, which is at least double, if not more, than it actually costs them. That seems completely unfair to me.

Didn’t WIN? Then BIN!

Speaking of unfair, how unfair is it to spend your bids in an auction and have no way to get them back if you lose? There will be plenty of times that you don’t win the auction. Personally, I win about 1 in 10 of the auctions that I seriously participate in. I’m fine with those odds, because I know that I can get all of my bids back by buy Buying It Now (BIN) if I don’t win. After you pay for a BIN, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away or save them, depending on how you’re feeling that day.

All DealDash Newbies, Start Here

Welcome to DealDash! If you’re just getting started, read on to find how DealDash works.

Welcome to DealDash. If you’re thinking of joining, or just joined recently, then here is a quick instructional blog article on how to get things started. It’s easy and fun to win great prizes and get awesome deals on DealDash. You can’t win if you don’t bid, though, so here are some simple instructions so you can get off bidding on the right foot. Read the rest of this article to find out more.

Think of a Name, Get Registered

Before you get registered on DealDash you’ll want to think of a username. You might find it a little trickier than you thought it would be – but that’s because DealDash has over 8 million registered users! But don’t worry, there are still plenty of names to choose from. Personally, I would suggest not using a username that you use on other websites, because sometimes it’s nice to go into “stealth mode” and not have anyone know who you are.

Getting registered takes just a couple of minutes. Just put in your username, your email, and a password, and you’re good to go. Later on you will fill out your other information such as your shipping address. After you have gotten registered then it’s time to buy bids.

Buy Bids

Bids are the currency that is used in the auctions on DealDash. Bids are for sale in a variety of amounts of bids. The regular price per bid is 60 cents, and your first bid pack purchase will be charged at this price. However, DealDash offers bid sales every day of the week where you can purchase bids from .13-.18 cents per bid. Typically on holidays the prices will be even lower. You just have to be check in and see what the price is every day, then buy bids or skip buying and wait for another day when the price is lower.

Search for a Product that You Need or Want

What do you want to win today? DealDash has so many different products that it would be impossible to list everything that is up for bid. However, I can tell you that there are kitchen items, outdoors and garage items, art, home decor, kid’s items, and gift cards.

All items sold on DealDash are brand new, sealed in the package, and come with manufacturer warranties. All of the items are clearly displayed on each auction page, some even have multiple pictures for you to check out. All of the items have excellent descriptions, and of course, you can always google the item you’re interested in to get consumer reviews or more information. DealDash prides itself on being honest and transparent, and always offers plenty of information on all of the products that are available for auction.

Bid, Bid, B-I-D

All auctions start at $0.00. Each time that a bidder places a single bid it adds one penny to the final price of the item. Each bid from you or anyone else restarts the timer to 10 seconds and allows people to place bids until the timer reaches 0 or is reset again by someone bidding. You can bid by clicking your cursor on the BID button, or use the free bidding tool that DealDash provides called the BidBuddy.

The BidBuddy is something that everyone should take advantage of – you can program it to bid as many times as you like, and you can watch it bid against the competition or step away from the computer, or even turn it off and go to sleep! This will come in extremely handy when you realize that some auctions can last days, depending on the popularity and retail price of the item.

Did You Win or Will You BIN?

Eventually, all auctions must end. The last person to bid is the winner of the auction and will pay the final auction fee that is displayed on the bidding screen. Sometimes DealDash offers half-off of all auctions or even FREE auctions. When you start bidding in an auction you never know if it’s going to be over in a matter of minutes or even days!

If you are planning on bidding on an item that you plan on buying anyway, you will want to think about going “all the way” and be willing to BIN (Buy It Now) if you don’t win. When you BIN the item for the retail price you get ALL of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. BINning items are a great way to get “perpetual” bids, because if you only bid on items you’re willing to buy, then you will always get your bids back if you lose.
