DealDash provides may sound like a silly phrase to you, but to me it’s the absolute truth. I have had so many experiences of talking to a friend or family member and telling them about how I wanted to get something in particular, and within the next day or so it always seems to be listed on DealDash.
Bear with me for a moment while I tell you a little bit about my son – He is a very cute 6 (almost 7) year old boy with Special Needs. He was born 3 months early and has global delays due to this fact. I had a meeting with all of his specialists this week, and his Physical Therapist suggested it might help his motor skills if we got him a bicycle with training wheels.
If a bicycle is what he needs, a bicycle is what he will get! However, it was very difficult to find the right bicycle that met his needs- Having an 18″ wheel size so it would fit him, but also having training wheels for balance. Just last night we went to Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, K-Mart, and Toys R Us. Not a SINGLE one of those stores had that particular combination in stock, the closest we came was one at Wal-Mart, but it was very clearly a girl’s bike, purple and sparkly. There were some available online that weren’t available in stores, but they were very expensive, over $100.
Just on a whim before bed last night I decided to check DealDash, and there it was! An 18″ boy’s bike with training wheels, in his favorite color, green! I checked, and it had a very reasonable BIN (Buy It Now) price of $66, at least $40 cheaper than any comparable bike that I found online. And with free shipping, it would be an awesome deal even if I didn’t WIN and ended up BINning it and getting all of my bids back. I set my Bid Buddy up with as many bids to reach the BIN price, and went to bed.
Imagine my surprise when I checked in today and found out that I had WON! And used only 77 bids!! 77 bids and $2 equals approximately $12.78, which is one of the BEST deals that I had ever gotten on DealDash, and now my son will have the bike that he needs for his therapy.
Thank you DealDash, my son is going to have an awesome surprise when his new bike arrives!
