Are You Stuck in a Rut on DealDash?

Are you stuck in a rut and just cannot seem to win a DealDash auction, anymore?

If so, perhaps you need to change the way you are playing. Here are some things you could do to break your losing cycle and start winning again:

  • Try playing different days and times. Competition tends to be stronger on weekends when more players are not at work, so it might be easier to win on week days. If you play at night, take time zones into consideration. It might be still night time for players on the West Coast but morning for players on the East Coast.
  • Try playing when DealDash offers less popular special features. Some customers might only bid during the “Free to the Winner” or “50 percent off” special features. During the most popular features, however, the competition tends to be stronger and the auctions tend to run longer. Therefore, it might not be the best time to win auctions for less money.
  • Try bidding in less popular products that are easier to win. You can see which auctions close for the least amount of money by double clicking on various auctions to see what the winners paid in the last seven days.
  • Avoid getting into the same auctions with power bidders or bidders who recently won a huge package of bids. You can figure out the screen names to avoid by looking at the winners list and making a list of your own.

If you are stuck in a rut, try breaking out of your old habits and making a few changes. It could make a winning difference.

Special Features on DealDash

What Special Feature do you love most on

I love all of the Special Features on DealDash because it prevents this online shopping site from ever being boring.

Some of the various features DealDash offers at different times are:

  • Free-to-the-winner auctions–This means the winner receives this auction item free of charge, except for a one penny transaction fee and the cost of the bids used to win the auction. DealDash pays 100 percent of the closing cost.
  • Fifty-percent off auctions–This means the winner of the auction only pays half of the closing cost and DealDash pays the other half.
  • No more new bidders allowed after the auction reaches $3–This means that if you do not place at least one bid before the auction reaches $3 you will be locked out of that auction. This limits the number of players competing for the same product, usually making the chance of winning much easier.
  • The 2X and 3X feature–This means customers get twice as much or three times as much time on the clock, making the green line on your screen move more quickly. Therefore, you will win your package of free bids that much faster.
  • Bid package sales—Customers have the opportunity to purchase bid packages for as little as 12 cents per bid, instead of paying the full price of 60 cents a bid.


In the past, DealDash offered other fun special features as well. A few of the fun features DealDash offered in the past were:

  • Winners not only got one, but two (one for the bidder and one for the bidder’s mom, sister or wife as a Mother’s Day special).
  • Bidders placed bids on a “Mystery Egg”(not having any idea what was behind the egg). When the Easter Special auction closed, the mystery item behind the egg was revealed and that’s what the winner received. This could work for Valentines with a “Mystery Valentine” or St. Patrick’s Day with a “Mystery Shamrock” or for Thanksgiving Day with a “Mystery Turkey.” It reminded me of “grab bags” in the old days when I paid 25 cents for a bag without knowing what was inside. What a fun feature!

The important thing is that DealDash special features gives customers a special deal and keeps the game interesting and fun.

DealDash Puts Customer Service First

If had a campaign motto, it would probably be “Customers First.”

Many other online shopping sites make it extremely difficult for customers to address problems by hiding their contact information. Not DealDash. Instead, DealDash makes it extremely easy for customers to contact its Customer Service representatives.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the home page, you will see a big yellow bar with the words “Contact Support.”  If you click on that button, a message area with instructions on how to use it will automatically appear.


I have been a DealDash customer since February 8, 2012. If anyone asked me what I honestly know and experienced regarding DealDash Customer Service, this is what I would say:

  • DealDash Customer Service representatives always make customer satisfaction a top priority
  • They always respond to any and all inquiries very quickly
  • They always provide a fair and honest solution to any and all problems
  • They always respond with a caring and positive attitude
  • They always treat customers with the utmost respect

In a time when so many other dishonest online shopping companies deceive customers with hidden fees and automated shipments for products we do not need or want, it is a pleasure to do business with a company that I know we can trust.

By consistently putting customers first, DealDash will, no doubt, maintain plenty of happy and loyal customers like me. In the Army when a job is well done, soldiers respond with one word and that’s all I have to say to DealDash customer service representatives– “Hooah!”

Submit a Review on DealDash

Whenever I shop online, I immediately look for customer reviews. Many times I change my mind about purchasing or not purchasing a product simply based on the reviews. Therefore, product reviews are definitely a benefit for online shoppers.

Did you know you can earn 10 free bids on for submitting a review of the products you win?


This is a very easy way to get some extra bids, and it’s very easy to do. Just go to “My Dashboard” and click on “Won auctions.” You will see a note offering 10 free bids for any won auction that you have not yet reviewed. All you have to do is give a star rating (from 1-to-5, with 5 being the best) on the following:

  • Shipping speed
  • Safely packaged
  • Product quality
  • Items as described

You can also make a short one or two sentence comment about the auction item and what you liked or did not like about the auction product being rated.

DealDash is willing to reward you with free bids to submit a product review for two important reasons:

  • It provides feedback to other customers who have not yet decided if they want to bid on a product, and
  • It alerts DealDash managers to any problem that might develop so they can quickly respond and fix it.

Best Time to Add More Bids

During an auction, when is the best time to add bids?

You might have noticed that DealDash has three color codes:

  • Green when you have plenty of bids left in the auction
  • Yellow when your bids are getting low, which is like a warning or caution that you need to think about adding more bids before you run out
  • Red when you are about to run out of bids and you might not have time to add more, especially if you must first buy more bids

Let’s say the auction is down to the last three players and you are one of them. Your bids might be getting low. It looks like you have a good chance to win, so you decide to add more bids. The question is: how will you choose to do it? Do you want the other two players to know you are adding more bids or not?

If you want to secretly add bids without letting the other players know, you must wait until your screen name comes up before adding them. If you add your bids when it’s your turn, the other players will never know.  This is how I usually choose to add more bids—secretly.  Why? I believe the other two players might get the idea that I am getting desperately low on bids if they know I just added more.

If you do want the other players to know when you add more bids, you must add them when it is not your turn. Whenever a bidder’s screen name shows up out-of-sequence, it means one of three things:

  • One or more new players joined the auction
  • One or more active bidders dropped out of the auction or
  • An active bidder just added more bids

Some players choose to add more bids out-of-sequence –making it obvious to the other competitors. Why would anyone choose to do that?  Perhaps it’s an intimidating way of letting other players know that you have no intention of quitting and plan to remain in the auction to the bitter end.  However, the remaining players have no idea how many bids were just added—only a few or several hundred.


When and how you choose to add more bids during an auction is up to each player. However, you might think about what message you are sending to the remaining players.
