How to Navigate & Win When 50 (or More!) Auctions Start at the Same Time on DealDash

 

It’s one of the most exciting promotions DealDash offers—those times when they offer 50, 75 or more auctions that start at the same time! When I first started bidding, I avoided these times at all costs. It was overwhelming and intimidating to me—but no more! Below are a few helpful tips to help you navigate the waters of this truly amazing promotion and get the win!

Preview Items in Advance & Set Bookmarks

Check out the items up for auction. Make note of any items you really want to win and focus on those. Use the bookmarking feature to make sure you have those items at the top of your page—front and center—and don’t miss those auctions!

 

Don’t Be Put Off by the Number of Bidders

 

The competition is high during these promotions—or at least it might seem that way. Many bidders want to get in on the action and take a chance on winning something for a few bids. Therefore, they place one to a handful of bids to make sure they get in on an auction early in case it goes over the $5 cutoff. Patience is key. Do not be intimidated by the increased number of bidders that sometimes happens during these types of promotions.

 

Be Aware of Unique Items Being Offered

 

During these promotions you will sometimes see unique items that do not appear in the regular DealDash rotation. This may include an item you always wanted to win but don’t see much anymore, so now could be your time! Make note of these seldom-offered items if they are something you’d like to bid on. Competition on these types of items could be high or low. If you’ve got the bids, take the chance!

 

As Always, Use Bid Buddy

 

Bid Buddy on DealDash is truly a bidder’s best friend. And there’s simply no easier way to stay in the game during a promotion when multiple auctions start at the same time. If you’re getting in on multiple auctions at the same time, I’d recommending adding a few extra bids to each auction for a cushion.

 

Check on Your Auctions as they Happen…or Not!

 

I’m an auction watcher. If I can’t dedicate the time to watch my auctions as they are happening, I rarely bid. But that’s just me. I like to have the option of backing out of an auction in the moment but there are some who are more comfortable setting their bids and walking away. Checking on auctions later allows you the great surprise of a win and the peace of mind that you’re not stressing over your bids in the moment.

 

Here’s hoping these tips for navigating the Multiple Auctions Starting at the Same Time promotions help you to win something great!  Happy bidding!

Does DealDash Differ?

DealDashIf you’ve bid on other sites, you know DealDash is different. Here are some ways that DealDash is amazing.

Customer Service is Top Notch

I have been bidding on DealDash for years, and I have had very few problems. However, no website is perfect, so I have occasionally had to email customer service for one thing or another. For example, once I had an item arrived damaged. I’m not sure if it had been damaged in transit or what, but regardless, it wasn’t in “100% new and factory-fresh” condition, so I emailed customer service. They emailed me back within just a few hours and arranged an exchange for me. There was no fuss, no hassle, and no pressure.

DealDash Won’t Telemarket You

Speaking of pressure, there is another entertainment bidding site out there that relies on high-pressure sales techniques for their bids. I had signed up for them around the time that I had signed up for DealDash, to see which site I liked better. Well, this other site included a space for a phone number that was required, so I put it in. They called me within moments of me signing up and tried to pressure me into buying $1,000 worth of bids on the spot. When I said “No thanks, I’m not sure if I’ll like your site or not.” they kept trying to convince me. It was like a telemarketing call, it was awful. I ended up hanging up on him.

DealDash would never do that. As I’ve said before, I’ve been with them for years, and the only time that they have ever called me was for a survey, and they emailed me first to ask if they could call me. And when I was on that phone call with DealDash there was absolutely zero talk about trying to get me to buy bids, it was just a customer satisfaction survey which I was happy to participate in.

Free Shipping for WINs and BINs

Unlike those other bidding sites, DealDash offers FREE shipping on every single item, no matter how big or how small. That is one of the reasons that I originally thought that DealDash was much better than some of the other bidding sites. Other entertainment shopping websites offer free shipping on just gift cards, or small items and have excessive “handling charges” on other items.

Did you know that some of the other sites even charge to ship gift cards? To ship a single gift card with a receipt in an envelope should cost 1 stamp. If you take into account the company’s cost of paper, envelope, and stamp I could agree with them charging around a dollar to ship a gift card. However, some sites are charging upwards of $2 to ship a single gift card, which is at least double, if not more, than it actually costs them. That seems completely unfair to me.

Didn’t WIN? Then BIN!

Speaking of unfair, how unfair is it to spend your bids in an auction and have no way to get them back if you lose? There will be plenty of times that you don’t win the auction. Personally, I win about 1 in 10 of the auctions that I seriously participate in. I’m fine with those odds, because I know that I can get all of my bids back by buy Buying It Now (BIN) if I don’t win. After you pay for a BIN, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away or save them, depending on how you’re feeling that day.

All DealDash Newbies, Start Here

Welcome to DealDash! If you’re just getting started, read on to find how DealDash works.

Welcome to DealDash. If you’re thinking of joining, or just joined recently, then here is a quick instructional blog article on how to get things started. It’s easy and fun to win great prizes and get awesome deals on DealDash. You can’t win if you don’t bid, though, so here are some simple instructions so you can get off bidding on the right foot. Read the rest of this article to find out more.

Think of a Name, Get Registered

Before you get registered on DealDash you’ll want to think of a username. You might find it a little trickier than you thought it would be – but that’s because DealDash has over 8 million registered users! But don’t worry, there are still plenty of names to choose from. Personally, I would suggest not using a username that you use on other websites, because sometimes it’s nice to go into “stealth mode” and not have anyone know who you are.

Getting registered takes just a couple of minutes. Just put in your username, your email, and a password, and you’re good to go. Later on you will fill out your other information such as your shipping address. After you have gotten registered then it’s time to buy bids.

Buy Bids

Bids are the currency that is used in the auctions on DealDash. Bids are for sale in a variety of amounts of bids. The regular price per bid is 60 cents, and your first bid pack purchase will be charged at this price. However, DealDash offers bid sales every day of the week where you can purchase bids from .13-.18 cents per bid. Typically on holidays the prices will be even lower. You just have to be check in and see what the price is every day, then buy bids or skip buying and wait for another day when the price is lower.

Search for a Product that You Need or Want

What do you want to win today? DealDash has so many different products that it would be impossible to list everything that is up for bid. However, I can tell you that there are kitchen items, outdoors and garage items, art, home decor, kid’s items, and gift cards.

All items sold on DealDash are brand new, sealed in the package, and come with manufacturer warranties. All of the items are clearly displayed on each auction page, some even have multiple pictures for you to check out. All of the items have excellent descriptions, and of course, you can always google the item you’re interested in to get consumer reviews or more information. DealDash prides itself on being honest and transparent, and always offers plenty of information on all of the products that are available for auction.

Bid, Bid, B-I-D

All auctions start at $0.00. Each time that a bidder places a single bid it adds one penny to the final price of the item. Each bid from you or anyone else restarts the timer to 10 seconds and allows people to place bids until the timer reaches 0 or is reset again by someone bidding. You can bid by clicking your cursor on the BID button, or use the free bidding tool that DealDash provides called the BidBuddy.

The BidBuddy is something that everyone should take advantage of – you can program it to bid as many times as you like, and you can watch it bid against the competition or step away from the computer, or even turn it off and go to sleep! This will come in extremely handy when you realize that some auctions can last days, depending on the popularity and retail price of the item.

Did You Win or Will You BIN?

Eventually, all auctions must end. The last person to bid is the winner of the auction and will pay the final auction fee that is displayed on the bidding screen. Sometimes DealDash offers half-off of all auctions or even FREE auctions. When you start bidding in an auction you never know if it’s going to be over in a matter of minutes or even days!

If you are planning on bidding on an item that you plan on buying anyway, you will want to think about going “all the way” and be willing to BIN (Buy It Now) if you don’t win. When you BIN the item for the retail price you get ALL of the bids back that you placed, as well as getting free shipping. BINning items are a great way to get “perpetual” bids, because if you only bid on items you’re willing to buy, then you will always get your bids back if you lose.

Better DealDash Bidding is at Your Fingertips

DealDash

 Better DealDash bidding is just at your fingertips if you pay attention to these simple suggestions from the DealDash blog.

DealDash has many helpful and useful features that you might not be taking advantage of, and therefore missing out on some good wins. Seeing as how all bidders want to get as many wins as possible, then you should learn about as many different bidding strategies that you can. That way you can maximize your wins by changing up your bidding styles and using these tips from DealDash.

Use Bookmarking and Alerts

Have you been using the the bookmarking and alert features that DealDash provides to all bidders? DealDash has made it so that you can know when all of your favorite auctions are coming up. You will be missing out on some great auctions if you aren’t using the DealDash “Bookmarking” and “Alert Me” features. You should use the search feature and bookmark and alert auctions on a regular basis. Wouldn’t you be sad if you missed out on something that you really wanted?

Take a Chance on Something New

Have you been bidding on the same auctions day after day? Maybe your favorite auctions are gift cards, or maybe bid packs. It’s nice to be able to bid on your favorite auctions, but it’s also fun and exciting to give new things a try as well. DealDash is partnered with many different companies to bring you new and interesting products that you might not see at your local store. When you take a chance and bid on something new then you have even more chances to win something awesome!

Conserve Your Bids

Bidding on your favorites and taking a chance on something new are both good things to do. However, sometimes there’s just nothing that you’re interested in bidding on that day, and that’s fine, too! Don’t bid on something just to do it, that’s just wasteful. If there’s nothing that you’re particularly interested in, then save your bids for another day. I know the fun and excitement of winning an auction is great, but at the end of the day, if it’s not something that you need or are excited about – don’t bid on it! Save those bids for something that you really love.

Life is Great With DealDash

DealDash

DealDash might just be a shopping site, but it help me in numerous ways. Here are some ways that DealDash makes life great!

There are many categories of websites – news, social media, etc. and the category that DealDash falls into is shopping. You might not think that a shopping website could improve your life, but you might be surprised. Read on and see how DealDash makes my life great.

Helps Save Money

Having three kids can be a huge drain on your finances. However, with DealDash I am able to stretch out my money a little bit further each month. DealDash often offers things that my family uses and needs on a recurring basis such as kid’s toys, clothing for the family, camping and gardening equipment, and more.

Normally I would buy these things at the mall or a big box store, however, with DealDash I can take a chance and bid on these items, and possibly win them for a great deal. For example, just last week I bid on (and won) a new comforter for my bed. I had been planning on buying a new comforter anyway, so getting one from DealDash for less than $3 including bids was a huge win for my budget. Since I had been planning on buying a new one anyway, I can take that $100 and use it elsewhere in my budget.

DealDash

By solely bid on things that I am actually prepared to BIN, I never lose money. I will either win and get a great deal or if I don’t win I can always pay the retail price and get all of my bids back to use again in a different auction.

Buying It Now – BIN it!

Do you know how to BIN an auction? Just go to your dashboard and you will see the “Open buy it now offers.” You will see the name of the product, how long you have left to BIN the auction, and how many bids you will receive back when you purchase the item.

Just like when you win an auction, click on the “Pay” button and you will be taken to the payment screen. You can choose to pay with credit, debit, or even Paypal, exactly the same as if you had won. Upon the completion of your payment, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away, or save them for another day.

DealDash Brings the Family Together

With two of my three kids at home all day long for the summer already, we need to find things that fill our day with activities. During the hours around lunchtime, it’s just too hot to go out on the deck or to play in the yard, so my 5-year-old and I like to browse on DealDash together. It fascinates her, and it’s always fun to search through all of the things that are available for bidding now or in the future. It’s also an excellent way to get ideas for birthday or Christmas presents, based on what she wants to search for when we are browsing. With my older child, DealDash is an excellent way to get math instruction in without it seeming like a chore.

With my older child, DealDash is an excellent way to get math instruction in without it seeming like a chore. He struggles a lot in school, and it’s a huge accomplishment for him when he is able to tell me how many bids that I can put in my BidBuddy for an item to reach the retail price. DealDash is learning and fun put together in one!
