Let’s Get Started on DealDash

get started dealdashAre you a new bidder on DealDash? If you’re just getting started you’ll need a little guidance. Read on…

Welcome to DealDash! It’s a wonderful place to get money-saving deals for yourself and your family. If you need a few tips to get yourself up and running on DealDash, then you’ve come to the right place. Here are some tips and pointers on how to get started on your new favorite bidding website.

Join and Buy Bids

It’s very easy to join DealDash. Simply go to this link right here and sign up with an email address. Once you have confirmed your email address you can sign right on and buy bids.

Buying bids is as easy as clicking the “buy” button. DealDash makes it easy to pay, as well. You can pay with a credit card or even with Paypal. The bid packs are available in different sizes. Right now they have packs of 60, 300, 600, 1200, and 2400. The price of the bids changes daily, it’s a good practice to check the price of the bids every morning so you can stock up with a bigger bid pack if there is an extra-good sale going. Here’s a tip: If the bid price is less than .14 per bid, then buy, BUY, BUY!

Set Up Your Profile

After you’ve purchased your first bid pack you’ll want to set up your bidder’s profile. Do you have an avatar that you would like to upload? Perhaps a picture of yourself, your dog, or your favorite celebrity. You can choose almost anything to upload as your avatar, but please remember that uploaded images are subject to approval and may not be immediately visible on the site.

It often usually takes a few hours for your picture to be approved. For approval, be sure that the file format is JPG, and the file is smaller than 3MB. Your uploaded image will be resized to 46 x 58 pixels. If you are so inclined you might want to resize your image yourself before you upload it, so you can be sure that it doesn’t get stretched out or pixelated when it’s uploaded.

If resizing and uploading an avatar image isn’t something that you want to do, then DealDash has many avatars that you can choose from. Just go to your dashboard and pick one and it will show up when you place a bid on DealDash.

Meet the BidBuddy

Who is the BidBuddy? He is the automated bidding too that DealDash offers to every single bidder, for free, on every single auction. Most auctions are won with the BidBuddy, and with good reason. The BidBuddy never gets distracted, loses his internet connection, or falls asleep while bidding. Here are some tips on how to use the BidBuddy:

  1. Do the math to figure out how many bids that you need to put in your BidBuddy to get to the BIN (Buy It Now) price.
  2. Buy enough bids to reach the BIN price of the auction you are thinking of winning.
  3. Place the bids that you would like to place in the auction in your BidBuddy.
  4. Hit the “Book a BidBuddy” button.
  5. Wait for the auction to end.
  6. Claim your win!

Small Wins on DealDash

DealDash small wins

There are hundreds of winners on DealDash every day, and many of those wins are under $200. Here’s why small wins are good.

Smaller wins on DealDash are a great thing. They can be easy to achieve, and no less exciting when they happen. The fireworks are just as bright, sparkly, and exciting to see for a $20 win as for a $200 win, in my opinion. The simple act of winning is enough to put a smile on my face.

Small Wins Are Easier

Are small wins are easier? You bet they are! There could be 50 bidders in the running for a high-value item such as a computer, but usually fewer bidders in the running for the smaller auctions, sometimes you might only be bidding against a few other people. As we all know, the fewer bidders there are in a DealDash auction the higher chance you have at success.

Small Wins are Better BINs

As you probably know, DealDash offers the BIN “Buy It Now” option on all auctions. If you participate in an auction and don’t win, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the item, free shipping, and all of their bids back to use on another auction. It’s much easier on your budget to BIN a lower valued item than a higher valued item. DealDash realizes that not everyone has the extra cash available to BIN an item that costs $1,000 but most people can BIN an item that is under $100, so they frequently offer items that have a lower value, which equals many more opportunities for a small win.

Small Wins Make Nice Gifts

DealDash is the perfect place to pick up small wins throughout the year and use them as gifts for birthdays and holidays. Sometimes it’s difficult to think of a present to give someone, so why not build up a collection of small wins from DealDash and keep them for the next occasion? There are so many smaller items available on DealDash that it would be very easy to get a few small wins per week and have gifts for your whole family whenever you need them.

I hope this article has you thinking about striving for some small (but awesome) wins on DealDash. I want you to get the most out of your DealDash experience. If you’re interested in reading more tips and tricks check out the “Tactics & Tips” section on DealDash.

Is It Magic? Nope, Just DealDash

dealdash magic

It’s not magic, it’s DealDash entertainment shopping! Here are some great things that are just par for the course on DealDash.

DealDash may not be magical, but it is a very special website. DealDash is the longest running pay-to-bid site in the United States, which is important to note because this means that DealDash is not just going to “disappear” one day with your bids.

There have been other pay-to-bid auction sites around the internet, and many of them have not lasted very long at all. DealDash is different, as of next month DealDash will have been in business for 8 years. That is many years of happy customers, and many more to come in the future.

Exactly How is DealDash Different?

Aside from the longer lifetime of the website, there are a few other very important differences from other auction websites. DealDash differs from its predecessors as well as a few other current sites mainly in that losing bidders are given an option to BIN (Buy It Now) any item for the retail price and receive back all of the bids that they spent.

The BIN option was a huge breakthrough for many bidders that were reluctant to use a website like DealDash due to the fear that they would spend money with nothing to show for it. Since DealDash has the BIN option that problem has been completely solved. Thanks DealDash!

DealDash Wants You to Succeed

DealDash is unlike other pay-to-bid auction sites because they care about their customers and want them to get amazing deals. DealDash shows this by regularly posting information to help people learn how to win. If you are skeptical, just read any of the blogs that are sponsored by DealDash such as this one, DealDashTips.com, and DealDashReviewed.com.

Winning DealDash

Everyone who plays on DealDash wants to win, but there can only be one winner per auction. Help boost your odds by reading this article.

Did you know that winning isn’t always a matter of luck on DealDash? Sometimes a bidder can have a stroke of luck, of course, such as being the only person who chooses to bid on a certain auction. That doesn’t happen terribly often, though. Most of the time bidders who win do so because they’ve taken the time and effort to learn how the auctions are played and the website works.

DealDash wants you to win.

No, really, they do! If there weren’t enough players bidding on and winning auctions then there wouldn’t be a need for a shopping entertainment site like DealDash. DealDash is grateful for all of the bidders and they show their appreciation in the form of free bids for various reasons and also by providing you information on how to win more auctions.

DealDash regularly posts information to help people learn how to win, both in this blog, the DealDash Tips blog, the DealDash Reviewed blog, and also on the website itself. The blogs often post helpful articles such as this one, and the website provides pages such as the “Winners” tab, which lets you see who’s winning which auction, when they’re winning it, and for how much.

Other DealDash Features

DealDash provides several special features to help bidders level the playing field and win more items. These features are extremely are easy to use and understand, but not everyone uses them, I can only assume it’s because they don’t understand how they work. Here are a few great features that DealDash provides every single bidder, for free.

  • BIN – “Buy it now” option. The BIN feature lets you buy an item that you didn’t win at the regular retail price and receive all of your bids back. When you BIN an item, you get all your bids back from that auction for FREE, and so you can use them in another auction. You receive them back immediately after you pay for the item.
  • The BidBuddy – The BidBuddy is you best bidding friend. Simply put the number of bids that you are willing to spend into the BidBuddy and hit the “Book a BidBuddy” button and the BidBuddy will bid for you until all of the bids have been used up. You can start or stop a BidBuddy at any time.
  • Bookmarks – You can bookmark auctions that you’re interested in and then view them all on the main auction page on the top left.
  • No Jumper Limits – The No Jumper Limit prevent new bidders from joining after the item price reaches $5 (occasionally there is a $3 limit during promotions). The No Jumper Limits reduces the number of bidders who can join that particular auction so there’s less competition.

I hope this article has been helpful and encouraged you to learn more about DealDash. It’s fun to learn about our favorite web site. You should definitely check out DealDash’s “Tips & Tricks” section on the site. It’s full of great information that you will find helpful when bidding on DealDash.

Don’t Give Away Your Free DealDash Bids

 DealDash sad mistake

DealDash is fun to play, and luckily you can get free bids for simple tasks. Why not take the free bids?

This DealDash Blog is written to help all bidders improve their DealDash experience. Those who avoid mistakes have a much better time than those who make many mistakes, and sometimes getting free bids from DealDash makes you feel better about playing. Here’s to you having a better experience bidding and winning on DealDash while earning free bids.

Free Bids

DealDash offers many opportunities to earn free bids. They are very generous, and these opportunities are open to all bidders. Not taking advantage of all these opportunities would be a HUGE mistake. Why in the world wouldn’t you take advantage of free bids when they are offered? Take the free bids!

To avoid the mistake of not accepting the free bids from DealDash, you need to know how to get them! The most popular way to get free bids is by posting on DealDash’s Facebook page.

If you would like to earn free bids from DealDash’s Facebook, your first step should be to “Like” DealDash’s Facebook page. Click on the link right here.  After you have “Liked” the DealDash Facebook page it’s very quick and easy to earn free bids by sending in pictures of you and your wins. Here are the directions:

1.Win an item on DealDash.

2. Take a bright, clear photo with yourself and the item you won. Review the picture before you send it, assuring that both your face and the item can be seen clearly.

3. Send the photo as an attachment in the email to community@dealdash.com and add a description that includes the following information: item name, retail price, how much you paid for the item and a personal comment about the win as well, which can be something such as “I won this $50 clock for 28 bids and $2.76, now I will never be late!”

The item value determines the amount of free bids that you will receive:

Item value is $199 or above = 350 Free Bids

Item value is $99 to $198 = 225 Free Bids

Item value is less than $99 = 30 Free Bids

As a bonus to encourage you to post pictures to Facebook, every Monday, DealDash will select the best photo from the previous week and award a 1,000 Bid Pack to the winner! Depending on the price of bids that day, that’s approximately a $150 value!! The only caveat to this is that the win must be an item that is valued at $99 or more.

DealDash Tips

Along with not accepting the free bids, another DealDash mistake that you need to avoid is not reading the DealDash Tips blog. DealDash Tips posts a new article every day, and often highlights the super sales that DealDash offers such as “Free Auction Day” and “Half-Price Auction Day.” DealDash Tips even occasionally posts bid prices days before they are common knowledge so that you can plan your purchases accordingly.

Finally, DD Tips also reveals secret “time as the highest bidder” promotions before they happen so you can “be in the know.” and wait to bid on those gift cards so you can get the maximum Time as the highest bidder “clock time” so you can earn free bids that much faster.

I hope that you found this DealDash Blog article on avoiding mistakes helpful. In summary, collect your free bids and read the DealDash Tips blog. Go check out DealDash at this link right here for some amazing auctions. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Outperforms All Sites (Part 1)

DealDash for the WIN

Do you use any other auction sites? Here’s why DealDash is better.

 There are many different auction and shopping sites out there on the World Wide Web, and DealDash is just one in a sea of many. However, DealDash has many excellent features and quirks that make it a very special site, and one that’s worthy of your time and attention.

What Should You Compare in a Site?

 There are many things that you should compare when you are deciding where to spend your hard-earned dollars, and the fact that you are doing research before you decide shows that you are a very savvy shopper. When choosing an entertainment shopping site, you should be looking at:
  •  Cost of individual bids
  • Number of bids in a bid package
  • Ease of winning auctions
  • Competition, i.e. Power Bidders
  • Response time from customer service
  • Solutions to problems from customer service

DealDash has Answers

Now that you know what you should be looking for in a shopping entertainment site, I am going to go through each and every item on that list and let you know how DealDash fares among other bidding sites.

  •  Cost of individual bids – DealDash bids fluctuate in price. The highest that I have ever seen bids sell for on DealDash is .60, and the lowest I have ever seen them go is .12. They are usually in the neighborhood of .14-.17. Other “pay to play” auction sites consistently charge .60-$1 per bid. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Number of bids in a bid package – DealDash sells a variety of bid packs ranging from around 60 to 2400 bids. Other websites have similar amounts in their bid packages. Winner? Tie.

 

  • Ease of winning auctions – DealDash auctions are easy when you first start and get progressively harder as you bid on better and more expensive items. Other sites don’t have a “breaking in” period and throw the newbies straight in with the Power Bidders. Not fair. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Competition, i.e. Power Bidders – All auction sites have Power Bidders. However, since DealDash has fairly strict winning limits the Power Bidders usually max out their limits fairly quickly and then have to sit out until their limits re-start themselves. Winner? Tie/DealDash.

 

  • Response time from customer service – DealDash has lightning fast customer service. I have had responses within minutes, and I’ve never waited more than 24 hours for a returned email. Other sites have emailed me back within a day, others have taken a few days, and some never emailed me back about my concerns. Winner? DealDash.

 

  • Solutions to problems from customer service – DealDash has the best and the nicest customer service reps around. I have spoken to quite a few of them on the phone and through email, and every single solitary one has been polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. Other sites, not so much. I actually had one customer service rep from a different site (No, I’m not going to name the site!) insult me when I said that I didn’t care to purchase $1,000 worth of bids that day. Winner? Clearly DealDash.

So you see from the questions and answers above, DealDash is the clear winner when you are comparing the different bidding sites around the web. Please stay tuned to the DealDash Blog, because Part 2 of “DealDash Outperforms All Sites” will be posted here on Saturday. If you can’t wait for more DealDash information, please check out our other blogs – DealDash Tips and DealDash Reviews. Until then, visit DealDash and see how much you can save. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
