Auctions are the competitive sales featured on DealDash’s website. Bidders attempt to purchase the featured products by submitting competing offers (bidding) for the item.


A bid is an offer to purchase the product at a particular price. All items featured in DealDash auctions are initially priced at $0.00, and the bids placed in the auctions increases the price of the offer by one penny. But remember, you are under no obligation to purchase the products, win or lose!

    1. What makes DealDash exciting is that the auctions may end after any of the bids placed!

      As soon as no bids are placed before the timer hits zero, the auction ends and the highest bidder wins an incredible bargain on the auction item. Shipping on DealDash is always free, and the auction winner will only have to pay for the final auction price to claim the win.

      DealDash has no control of the duration of the auctions, and it is solely up to the bidders and their placed bids to determine when an auction ends. That’s what makes it so exciting – there are no reserve prices regardless of the value of the item, and any bid can truly be the last one. We have seen $3,000 TVs or $2,200 Macbooks get sold for just a few bids, and many other similar deals are made on DealDash every day.

      If you do not win an auction you will not automatically get the bids back to your account. You have the option to use the Buy it Now button. By using the Buy it Now option you will get the item for retail price and all bids back to your account that you used in the auction. Users who take advantage of this option usually have a better experience, since they both get the item they initially wanted, as well as retain all their bids.

      If you do not want to use Buy it Now you will unfortunately lose the bids. We recommend our users to bid on items they really want, so that if they lose the auction, they can still get the item and their bids back.

      Let me know if you have more questions!

    1. Hi Sheron, we understand how you mean and we wish we could guarantee everyone would always win auctions. What we can guarantee is a full refund on your first purchase if not satisfied for any reason – this allows you to at least give the site a try knowing your safe to get your money back from your first purchase if you want. Also, if you don’t win an auction with your first bid pack purchase, we’ll return those free for a second chance. Lastly, all auctions have a Buy it Now option. So as long as you bid on items you want to have and are willing to buy at normal price in case you don’t win, you don’t lose the bids and can continue bidding to try again. It’s a good option to have a fun time shopping and try to win some good deals. Plus all items come with free shipping so you don’t have to worry about any hefty shipping fees.
