It is our family tradition to take each one of our three daughters out for dinner on or around their birthdays. The whole family goes which totals 7 people so the bill can get pretty pricey. One of our favorite places to eat is Texas Roadhouse. Since DealDash offers Texas Roadhouse gifts cards, I figured why not bid on some of those. I scanned through the up-coming auctions to find the ones I wanted to bid on.
The first auction was on March 30, which I successfully won for $0.22 using just 5 bids. The next auction was on April 8. I won that auction for $0.82 using just 9 bids. For $1.04 and 14 bids, I had won $100.00 worth of Texas Roadhouse gift cards from DealDash. I figured I would try once more since I knew our bill would total over the value of those first two cards. On April 12th I once again began bidding on a $50.00 TRH gift card. Well, I got in with several bidders who were determined to keep the auction going at all costs so I eventually, after using 100 bids, chose to use the BIN option (Buy it Now and get my bids back) and got all my spent bids returned to me. I then had enough gift cards to cover the birthday dinner. My total investment for $150.00 in Texas Roadhouse gift cards was $51.04 and 14 bids. Not a bad haul!
