Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as DealDash Bidders

Joan Vith DealDash Bidder
By Joan Vith

While vacationing the past few days I was thinking about writing a whimsical take on the different DealDash bidders we see on the best auction site DealDash.com. I happened to stumble upon some really great statues of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and thought I’d write an article comparing the seven dwarfs (Doc, Sneezy, Dopey, Sleepy, Bashful, Grumpy, and Happy) with the different bidding behaviours and traits of DealDash shoppers.

For your entertainment here’s the original movie trailer from the original 1937 Walt Disney masterpiece Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

I had originally stopped at the gas station, to use the Subway gift cards I won on Deal Dash for a quick sandwich, while we were on the go when I saw these statues. I thought about how I could describe our fellow DealDash bidders and compare them to Snow White’s seven dwarfs. Here’s what I came up with…

Doc Dwarf from Snow WhiteDoc

The meticulous bidder who watches, waits, and examines each auction he bids on. He wins some, he loses some.

Sneezy Snow White DwarfSneezy

He bids, then bids again, then stops.  Hi ho, he bids again, then bids again, and again, then stops and never comes back into the auction again.

Snow White and Seven Dwarf DopeyDopey

He bids, he slaps, he bids, he bids, he slaps, he uses all his bids and never wins.

Sleepy Snow White DwarfSleepy

He bids, sets his bid buddy, leaves the room, and returns to find his auction has sold while he was sleeping!

Snow White Dwarf Bashful Bashful

This bidder bids once or twice and then is never heard from again.  Perhaps too shy to bid again?

Grumpy Snow White DwarfGrumpy

This bidder bids on several auctions all day. He loses most, because he has not stayed focus on one auction and spreads his bids too thin. Losing his auctions has cost him so many bids he just gets grumpy and will probably not even use the Buy it Now feature DealDash offers for bidders to get their bids back.

Happy Snow White DwarfHappy

Last but not least, this is my favorite of all because he has watched, listened, and learned how to play smart on DealDash. Due to this he gets to see “Congratulations!” and fireworks regularly as he wins auctions! What a happy bidder this little dwarf is! He has reached that place we all want to be and that is on the winners page on DealDash.com. Free shipping makes him happy too, and since he bought all his bids on sale, he knows he got the best deal of all.

Which of the seven dwarfs would you say you are? Please comment below and if you are interested in reading more of my bidding tips, here’s my article DealDash in review – understanding and winning auctions.

DealDash Bidding Review Podcast With Real Customers

The Bidding Basics Of How Deal Dash Works

1. You need to buy bids before you can bid in the auctions. The normal price of bids is 60¢ per bid however DealDash has regular discount sales where you can buy bids anywhere from 15 to 20 cents per bid. For example you can get 200 bids for $30.00 (breaks down to 15¢ per bid).

2. Auctions start off at $0.00 (no reserve price) and each bid placed increases the final selling price of the auction by 1 penny.

Example: the auction begins at $0.00 and 1 bid is placed, the price of the auction goes to $0.01, another bid is placed by someone else and the price goes to $0.02. With each bid placed the auction clock is reset to 10 seconds and begins counting down allowing the opportunity for someone else to place a bid if they want to. When no more bids are placed, the auction ends and sells to the highest bidder who becomes the winner! 

If you’re considering to give DealDash a try, you’ll be happy to know there are two different guarantees.

1. If you don’t win an auction with your first bid pack, DealDash will give those bids back to you free for a second chance. This allows you to try again and try a different strategy.

2. There is a full 90 day money back guarantee on your first purchase if not satisfied for any reason.

Go ahead and give DealDash a try today! Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the customer support team by sending an email to support@dealdash.com.

Enjoy the auctions! There’s over 1,000 listed every day!

How I Funded A Birthday Dinner With DealDash

DealDash Gift Card Birthday Party

It is our family tradition to take each one of our three daughters out for dinner on or around their birthdays. The whole family goes which totals 7 people so the bill can get pretty pricey. One of our favorite places to eat is Texas Roadhouse. Since DealDash offers Texas Roadhouse gifts cards, I figured why not bid on some of those. I scanned through the up-coming auctions to find the ones I wanted to bid on.

The first auction was on March 30, which I successfully won for $0.22 using just 5 bids. The next auction was on April 8. I won that auction for $0.82 using just 9 bids. For $1.04 and 14 bids, I had won $100.00 worth of Texas Roadhouse gift cards from DealDash. I figured I would try once more since I knew our bill would total over the value of those first two cards. On April 12th I once again began bidding on a $50.00 TRH gift card. Well, I got in with several bidders who were determined to keep the auction going at all costs so I eventually, after using 100 bids, chose to use the BIN option (Buy it Now and get my bids back) and got all my spent bids returned to me. I then had enough gift cards to cover the birthday dinner. My total investment for $150.00 in Texas Roadhouse gift cards was $51.04 and 14 bids. Not a bad haul!
