Hello New DealDash Bidders!

DealDash

If you’re a new bidder on DealDash there are a few things you need to know. Read on for some tips on DealDash basics.

Greetings, new bidder on DealDash! You are in for a very exciting experience. DealDash is a fun and exciting website where you just might take home a big win. It’s not a good idea to just start bidding without reading up on how to use the site, though. Read this article for some DealDash information that you need to know.

Making an Account

The first thing that you need to do is open a DealDash bidding account. If you don’t have an account you can still look around, but you won’t be able to try out the site. It’s simple to open up an account, it just takes a minute. All you need to sign up is your name, email, and a user name chosen by you. Think about it carefully, because you can’t change it afterward.

Buying Bids

When you have completed your sign up, you need to buy your first bid pack. Your first bid pack of 60 bids is $36. You can use these bids to see if you enjoy DealDash. However, if for some reason you don’t like bidding on DealDash this amount will be fully refunded to you if you contact customer service. There is a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and if you decide that DealDash isn’t for you then just contact customer service under the “Help” section on the main DealDash page and they will assist you in canceling your account and having the cost of your first bid pack refunded to you.

After you have purchased your first bid pack, then you are eligible for bid discounts! There is a different discount listed every day, which you can see on the main DealDash page. Bid packs come in many different amounts of bids. You can get a pack of 60, 300, 600, 1200, or 2400. Bids cost between .13-.60 per bid. The most common price for bids is around $.15-.17. Sometimes they dip down to the .12-.14 range, typically on holiday weekends. Just keep your eyes peeled, and check the main DealDash page often.

Bidding Explained to Newbies

There are two main ways that you can bid on DealDash – single bids or by using the BidBuddy. Placing a single bid is extremely simple. You can place single bids on the front page, or by opening up an individual auction and clicking the “bid” button.

Using the BidBuddy is a much better option for most situations. The BidBuddy is on all auctions and is available to all bidders to use. Your BidBuddy will alternate bidding with the other BidBuddies that are set until there are no more bids placed from BidBuddies or other bidders, and whoever has the last bid in before the clock runs out is the winner. To use the BidBuddy simply open up an individual item’s auction page, and put in as many or as few bids as you like. You can cancel it or add more bids at any time.

Getting Overwhelmed on DealDash? Here’s Help!

DealDash

If you feel like you’re getting overwhelmed on DealDash, no problem. Just take a step back and read this article.

DealDash doesn’t want you to feel overwhelmed when you’re bidding. DealDash wants you to bid responsibly and have a great time in the auctions. Sometimes, especially when you’re a newbie, it’s easy to get confused and overwhelmed with all of the different auctions and promotions that are going on at any given time. DealDash wants you to enjoy your shopping entertainment experience to the fullest extent. Here are some tips and ideas from DealDash to keep you from getting overwhelmed.

Familiarize Yourself With the Rules

There are really only a few rules on DealDash, but to avoid making any mistakes that might put your account in jeopardy. There are just a couple things to remember. There is only one bidding account per household, and you are not allowed to bid in any auctions that other people that you know are bidding in. For a full list of the rules, just click this link right here. Once you have familiarized yourself with the rules, it will make things more clear and you’ll be less likely to get overwhelmed.

Set Bidding Limits for Yourself

Another way that you can keep yourself from getting overwhelmed is setting bidding limits for yourself for each auction, and not “cheating.” Setting reasonable bidding limits for yourself makes a whole lot of sense when you’re a new bidder and trying not to get overwhelmed. If you have a hard time sticking to limits that you set for yourself, then your BidBuddy will be your best friend. The BidBuddy is available on every auction on DealDash, and you can just put your bids in and turn off your computer. This is a way to assure that you won’t go over your limit and get yourself feeling overwhelmed.

Buying It Now (BIN)

 

BIN (Which means Buy It Now) is an excellent way to make sure that you don’t get overwhelmed when bidding in an auction. Remember when I suggested sticking to a bidding limit on each auction? Well, if you get a little carried away and bid more than your limit – don’t worry. You can always BIN the item so you don’t get that overwhelmed feeling when you realized that you spent too many bids on a particular item.

BINning an item means that you agree to pay the full retail price for the item and in return, you will receive your bids back from DealDash. All auctions are availible for you to BIN, as long as you placed at least a bid before there was a winner.

Use DealDash to Be a Do-Gooder

DealDash

Winning for yourself is fun, but why not do some good? Use DealDash to help yourself be a do-gooder.

DealDash is here to auction off amazing items, but once you have everything that you need why not give back to your community? DealDash can help you get some items that would be much appreciated by the less fortunate members in your community. All of us who use “entertainment shopping” such as DealDash are fortunate that we have enough money in our budget to have fun and shop. Some people don’t have any extra room in their budget after they have the basics. Why not be a “do-gooder” and win some things to donate?

Identify Who Needs Your Help

There are many different types of people and organizations in your community who would benefit from a donation. Before you start bidding, you should make a list of the type of items that you are hoping to win and donate. For example, if you live in a very hot climate such as Texas or Florida and want to win clothing to give to the less fortunate, then you should probably stay away from the heavy jackets and sweaters.

Some examples of people and organizations who could benefit from donations are:

  • Food Banks. Food banks often offer items other than food to the people who use them, such as personal hygiene and grooming supplies. They could also use the $10 gift cards for fast food that DealDash often offers for auction.
  • Schools. Schools are always in need of supplies for their classrooms. DealDash sometimes offers office supplies and craft supplies that would make great donations for a school in your neighborhood.
  • Fire Stations. The firefighters in your community could use your help. They are often volunteers who spend long hours in their fire station waiting for a call to come in. They would appreciate things to make that time go faster such as MP3/4 players, video game, movies, and other entertainment. They would also appreciate gift cards as well to places such as Wal-Mart so they can re-stock their supplies and purchase some treats.
  • Department of Social Services. DSS can always use donations of baby supplies, personal hygiene items, and toys. When babies, kids, and teens are removed from their home they often have to spend hours at DSS waiting to either be returned to their parents or taken to a foster home. A soft plush toy or a fun game can help them take their mind of their situation for a little while.

Want Your Donation to be More Personal?

If you like the idea of being a do-gooder and donating some of your wins but don’t like the idea of donating to an organization, I have a solution. Churches are often one of the first places that a family turns when they are in trouble. Even if you are not religious or associated with a church, you can still find a recipient of your generosity there. Simply call the church office during the week and explain that you would like to donate to a needy family in their parish. They will be very happy to match you up with a family and you can know that your donation is making a very big difference in the life of a family in your own community.

BIN Instead of Win

You should know that with all auctions on DealDash , if you don’t happen to win these items when you bid on them, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now). Simply buy them for the retail price, and you will get all of your bids back to use again. You will also receive free shipping, AND get to keep of the clock time that you earned as being the highest bidder.

Hello August – Time For a Summer Party!

DealDash

Happy August everyone! Get the grill ready, it’s time for a summer party!

I hate to say it, but it seems like the summer is just slipping away so quickly. Here it is, already August! I hope that you have your family has been enjoying the summer so far. There’s still a third of the summer left to go, let’s have a summer party! Get out the lawn games, BBQ grill, and iced tea. DealDash can help with the supplies. Read on for more tips on how to make your summer party a success.

Start the Party Preparations

Unless you entertain regularly, you’ll need to get some supplies for your party. Depending on the number of guests, you might have to stock up on some of the basics, such as paper plates and napkins. There are also questions that you’ll want to ask yourself such as “Is there enough seating for everyone?” and “How am I going to make sure that my guests are going to have a good time?”

You might want to start with making a list of the guests that you plan on inviting. After you have completed that you can decide if you need to get out the extra folding chairs for the patio or deck, or if you need to buy a few outdoor toys for younger guests. Because let’s face it, spending $5 buying a large ball and $1 buying some bubbles is an excellent investment to make so you don’t have to hear “I’m borrrrrred!”

What Are You Going to Serve?

Hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill are a must unless of course, you’re a vegetarian. Then I suppose you would be serving Boca Burgers and veggie dogs, instead! Other than the grilling basics, you need to decide what else you’ll be serving, and if you’ll be making it yourself, buying it prepared, or trying to convince your Aunt Sue to make her potato salad. Once you’ve decided the menu and if you’ll be preparing it, then it’s time to make a shopping list.

Be Sure the Grill is Ready

If you’ve been using your grill all summer long, then you probably don’t have to worry about this item too much. It would be wise of you to check the amount of gas or charcoal that you have left, though, because it certainly would be disappointing to run out during your party.

If your grill has seen better days, don’t fret! DealDash has a selection of grills up for auction, as well as hardware store gift cards if you don’t see the model that you want. Lowes has a huge selection of grills available, and DealDash often has Lowes gift cards up for auction. Be sure that your grill is in good shape and ready to party! If you’d like to see the grills that are available for auction on DealDash, then just click right here.

DealDash Heroes: United States Air Force

DealDash

Welcome to the newest DealDash series, DealDash Heroes! Today we are going to be talking a little bit about the United States Air Force.

The United States Air Force is one of the seven branches of American uniformed services that also includes the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and finally, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps. All of these branches of uniformed services are extremely important, but today we are going to focus on the Air Force. Here is a little bit more information about the Air Force, their history, and their importance to our country.

Air Force History

The Air Force originally started as a branch of the Army and became its own entity on September 18th of 1947. The Air Force is the most recent branch of our military to be formed. You probably aren’t surprised to know that the Air Force is in charge of protecting our air and space, did you know that they are also responsible for protecting our cyber space as well? As the most recent and technically savvy branch of the United States Military, the Air Force is in charge of keeping us safe from cyber criminals.

Presidental Airmen

We have two former presidents who were also in the Air Force. In 1937, Ronald Reagan enlisted as a reservist in the Air Force and was ordered to active duty in April 1942. He left active duty at the rank of captain on December 9, 1945. Ronald Reagan was part of a special unit that made films for the Air Force. By the time Ronald Reagan’s enlistment was over, his unit had produced over 400 training films for the Air Force.

Our other presidential airman was George W. Bush, who joined the Texas Air National Guard of the U.S. Air Force in 1968. George W. Bush trained as a fighter pilot, and in 1973 was transferred to the Air Force Reserve. George W. Bush was honorably discharged at the rank of first lieutenant in 1974.

The Air Force Tracks Santa

Starting in December of 1955, there were ads in the newspaper telling kids that they could call Santa to find out his current location. The ads included a phone number. The number that was listed in the ads actually called the U.S. Air Defense Command. The colonel on duty ordered his team to give all kids information on jolly old St. Nick’s “current location.” This tradition now handles calls from over 200 countries, and also offers online tracking as well.

 

How Can We Thank the Air Force Airmen?

The airmen (and women, but they are all called airmen) are brave individuals that protect our freedom. We should all be grateful to them and show our appreciation for their selfless acts of courage. How can we show our appreciation to our Air Force airmen?

There are a few ways that you can thank airmen in the air force. There is a wonderful website that you can visit called http://anyairman.com. This website will give you the address of a random airman so that you can send them a letter, card or care package. You can also choose to donate any amount of money, large or small, on the website that will be used to make care packages for airmen.

Another way that you could help an airman is to contact your local veteran’s hospital and ask if you could visit or volunteer. Some veterans that are in the hospital don’t get any visitors, and this would be a wonderful way to show your appreciation.

Different Terms: Buying Bids and Buying It Now

DealDash

What’s the difference between buying bids and Buying It Now? Read on to find out more from DealDash…

DealDash has many different terms, abbreviations, and acronyms. If you’re a newbie, you might be wondering what the difference between “Buying It Now” and buying bids. The answer is easy, but let’s look a little deeper into the explaination.

Buying It Now (BIN)

DealDash has your back covered no matter if you win or lose – that’s why they created BIN – Which means “Buy It Now.” People often say they are going to “BIN” an auction, which just means that they are going to pay the full retail price for the item and receive their bids back from DealDash.

Buy It Now (BIN) is how many people that use DealDash are able to participate so often. All auctions are availible for you to BIN, as long as you placed at least a bid before there was a winner. It’s a smart idea to always BIN the auction if you don’t win.

What Do I Get When I BIN?

If you’re wondering how much it costs to BIN an auction, it’s different for each one, depending on the retail price of the item. The BIN price is located at the top of the auction’s individual page. When you BIN an auction for the retail price you’ll get each and every bid back from DealDash that you placed, in addition to free shipping on the item. After you have paid for your BIN auction you will receive all of your bids back that you have placed to use right then or to use later on.

An Example of a Successful BIN

Let’s look at an example of a successful BIN on DealDash. If you are bidding on a necklace that has a BIN price of $85 and you have already placed 575 bids, assuming you paid around .15 per bid, it would make sense for you to BIN this auction and get all of your bids back, because .15 x 575 = $86.25. So if you BIN this necklace for $85, you will receive free shipping as well as all of your bids back to try again on a different auction. DealDash has given you a wonderful gift with BIN, because if you are willing to BIN an auction you will never lose – you will get all of your bids back when you BIN it for the retail price.

Buying Bids

Now that you know what a BIN is, let’s talk about buying bids. Because, after all, bids are the currency that you use to participate on DealDash. Bid packs come in many different amounts of bids. You can get a pack of 60, 300, 600, 1200, or 2400. Bids cost between .13-.60 per bid. The most common price for bids is around $.15-.17, so if you see them for less than that, you should definitely buy some right away. The price of bids changes daily, there will always be a sale around the corner. Stock up on bids for a rainy day.
