What are DealDash Categories?

DealDash has Many different categories of items to choose from. DealDash products are seperated into categories to make things easier for you to find if you prefer to browse instead of search.

You should familiarize yourself with the DealDash categories so you can easily find something when you need it. There are seven different categories to choose from:

  7. Gift Cards

 

What is BIN and How Do I Use it?

BIN stands for Buy It Now, and you will soon learn to love the BIN option. The BIN option is put into place so that you don’t lose money when you are using DealDash.

The way BIN works, is if you don’t win an auction you can pay the retail price for the item that you didn’t win. After you pay you will receive back all of the bids that you placed to use again into your bid bank. This is why is makes a lot of sense to shop on DealDash for things that you definitely plan on buying. You might end up getting it for an amzing deal if you win the auction, but if you don’t win you can always BIN and get your bids back. Remember, you can do a BIN on any DealDash item as long as you have placed at least one bid.

DealDash Bidding Resolutions

DealDash

What are your New Year’s DealDash bidding resolutions this year?

There are many different bidding resolutions that you could choose to make this year. It all depends on how much you use DealDash and what your bidding style is, but here are some common bidding resolutions that you could choose to make this year. Read on for more information on bidding resolutions.

Resolve to Get Free Bids

DealDash loves to give free bids to their loyal bidders. Did you know that you can get free bids for just visiting DealDash and placing a bid? It sounds strange and like a trick, but it’s 100% legit. DealDash will give you between 4-30 bids every time you visit DealDash and place a bid on consecutive days. If you come and bid for a whole week on consecutive days you will end up earning 30 bids on the 7th day!

If you’ve been bidding on DealDash you are probably familiar with this one, but you always receive time on your time clock for being the highest bidder in a DealDash auction. As you bid your time clock meter starts filling up with green when you are the highest bidder. Once your little green meter at the bottom of your screen has been filled up, you will be credited with free bids. Getting free bids from DealDash is a great bidding resolution for the new year.

Resolve to Use the BidBuddy

Using the BidBuddy is a no-brainer, but some people simply just don’t realize how awesome the BidBuddy truly is. The BidBuddy will bid for you when you aren’t there – or when you are there but prefer not to place single bids. The BidBuddy wins more auctions for DealDash bidders than placing single bids does.

If you haven’t been using the BidBuddy regularly, then you should make it your bidding resolution to start using it this year. It will save you bids and money because it bids in turn with the other BidBuddies. It doesn’t waste any bids and only bids when it’s your “turn” to bid. Don’t waste your bids this year, resolve to use the BidBuddy.

Resolve to Budget

A common mistake that people make when they first start bidding on DealDash is to not figure out a bidding budget. It’s easy to get carried away and spend all of your bids in one auction if you’re not paying attention. This is why it’s important to make a bidding budget. You can figure out how many bids you want to purchase and how many bids that you want to spend on each auction. You might choose to do a BIN (Buy It Now) and get your bids back, therefore keeping your bidding budget in check. Resolve to have a bidding budget this year and you will be glad that you did.

YAY You Won the DealDash Auction! Now What?

DealDashYou won the DealDash auction! YAY! Now, here’s what you need to do next…

Step 1 – Bidding

The only way to win an auction is by bidding, of course. You’ll want to either place single bids or put your bids into the BidBuddy so he can bid for you. With a little bit of patience, you could be the winner of the auction.

You’ll know that you’ve won when you see the fireworks across your screen. You will get excited when you see the fireworks, because you’ll know that you’re the big winner! YAY! Congratulations, highest bidder! If you decided to use the BidBuddy instead of placing single bids and you aren’t watching your screen when you win, DealDash will automatically send you an email. Here’s a tip: You’ll still get to see the fireworks show inside!

DealDash winner

Step 2 – Paying for Your Win

Once you’ve seen the fireworks it’s time to pay the final auction fee. This is the fee that starts with 1 penny and increases by .01 every time someone bids. When you’re ready to pay, then go to your DealDash dashboard and click on the “Won Auctions” tab. You’ll see the auctions that you have won and how much you need to pay so that DealDash can ship your item. Simply click the “Pay” button and you will be taken to the payment screen. You can choose to pay with credit, debit, or even Paypal. Personally, I like PayPal, because I can pay with my PayPal balance instead of having to charge my credit card for a small amount like $1 or $2.

Sometimes DealDash even has a promotion that makes your final auction fee 1 penny. They call it “free” auctions, the 1 penny is a transaction fee. So even if you win an auction during a free auction day, be sure to do to your dashboard and pay the 1 penny so DealDash can ship out your item. There is another similar promotion called “Half Price Auctions”, and your final auction fee will be half of what it would normally be, e.g. you won an auction for $7, then DealDash would only charge you $3.50. What a great DealDash deal!

 

Step 3 – Check Your Shipping and Tracking

DealDash has free shipping on each and every item on the site, including both WINs and BINs. After you have paid, your item will ship. DealDash ships items extremely quickly, I have gotten items within 48 hours of paying. This isn’t always the case, but more often than not you can expect to see your win in the mailbox the following week.

After it ships, you will be able to track it on your DealDash dashboard. This only pertains to items, not gift cards unless the value of the gift card is over $250. If you’d like to see your tracking number on your item, simply navigate to your dashboard and click on the “My Orders” tab and you will see all of your paid orders.

Get Practical Gifts Instead of Fun Ones?

I love being a wife and mother, but sometimes people seem to forget that I have my own hobbies! In the past years, I have received vacuum cleaners, cute aprons, cookware, and a (very useful) electric teapot. Now, those are all fine gifts and I use them often, but sometimes on holidays I just want something silly and non-essential! However, I have to say, I use that electric teapot every single day.

If you also got practical gifts this year instead of fun ones, what would you like to get yourself on DealDash? How about some beautiful jewelry? DealDash has a great selection of earrings, and they all come in little velvet bags that are inside a high-quality gift box. Make some new earrings a gift for yourself. If jewelry isn’t your thing, how about a new painting, purse, or candle?

You can BIN it! When you BIN an item on DealDash, you will receive your bids back that you spent when you buy the item for the retail price. However, getting yourself a gift that you really want? Priceless.

Step Up Your Bidding Game on DealDash

DealDashNeed to step up your bidding game? Here are some hints and tips from DealDash.

Are you a new bidder who is still trying to figure out how to step up your bidding game on DealDash? If DealDash is your favorite new hobby and you’re loving it, then step it up! Is your goal to be the best bidder that you can be? Well then, it’s time to learn how to up your bidding game on DealDash.

You Need to Buy Bids for the Best Price

First of all, if you’ve been buying bids for .60 a piece, then you need to show a little patience and wait for a sale. I never buy bids if they are over .14, though to be honest, I prefer .12! This means that I am not an impulse buyer, and I plan ahead and buy the biggest bid pack that fits into my budget when I see bids for .12 or .13 per bid. The absolute best time to buy bids is to wait for a big sale. Always wait until bids are at a super low price and buy them all at once, not a few here and a few there.

Set Reasonable Buy/BIN Goals

If you are bidding on things that you would buy at the store anyway such as a kitchen or everyday household item you can BIN (Buy It Now) the auction for retail value if you lose. You will also get free shipping on these items, and you will not be losing any money.

This is why you should set some bidding goals for each auction.  Setting reasonable goals is definitely a way to step up your bidding game. The more organized you are, the less likely you are to be impulsive and waste your bids.

For each auction that you enter, think about your goals before you start bidding. Ask yourself if you want to “go all the way” up to the retail price of the auction and BIN the item, or if you just want to bid 10%, 15%, or maybe 20% of the value before you drop out of the auction if you don’t win. By setting bid and BIN goals you can practice your bidding and make sure that you aren’t losing money as you go.

Always Get Your Free Bids

Stepping up your bidding game includes taking the freebies that DealDash offers in the form of free bids. There are many different ways that you can snag free bids from DealDash . You can bid on any item on DealDash to fill up your free bid meter. Also, you can simply sign in to DealDash and place a couple of bids every day. You could also try entering one of the contests that DealDash offers. The newest contest is called the “Best idea of the month” contest, and you can win 500 bids for sending in your idea to improve DealDash. Finally, sending in selfies to Facebook with your won items can also get you free bids every single week. It’s easy to step up your bidding game when you’re bidding with free bids from DealDash!

Christmas time is rapidly approaching and you may just find yourself in charge of a family Christmas party. Never fear though, as putting together a party like this is really a lot simpler then one would think. Here are a few tips to get you set on the right path, from DealDash.

Hurry, Invite Your Guests

Make sure that you let everyone know about the party as soon as possible. If you are short on time consider social media or email to tell your family about the party. This way you are giving people enough time to make arrangements to get to the party. You also want to make sure that you have a defined time for the party so family members know when the party starts and ends.  Gone are the days of using paper invitations. You can call, email, text, or even send an Evite. 

Planning the Meal

When planning for food, keep it as simple as possible. You can easily plan for finger foods to keep everyone happy during the party. If you are planning a big meal consider asking people to bring a dish to share.

Always make sure you take into account family member that might have food allergies when planning your Christmas party meal. You also might want to make sure that there is something to eat for any vegetarians in the family, or if anyone eats gluten-free. If there are any allergies or picky eaters in the family you don’t have to plan your menu specifically around them, but be sure that there are at least a few things that they will be able to eat.

Activities for Everyone

Make sure you have activities planned that appropriate for all ages. You need to be sure that every family member, no matter what their age, can participate in the activity if they want to do so. You can plan a couple of fun party games like wrapping a bunch of small gift in plastic wrap and watch everyone try to unwrap it. There are countless other party game ideas on the internet.

Other activities you might want to consider are watching a classic Christmas movie, caroling around the Christmas tree, or baking cookies together. Be sure to have a few board games out so that people can keep themselves entertained while you are busy with the other preparations.

Decorations Everywhere

Decorations really don’t have to be anything too complicated. In fact, just how you would normally decorate your home for Christmas is just fine for your family Christmas party. That will save you a good deal of time a stress in planning the party. Even if you don’t have a Christmas tree, no problem! A string of lights here or there, a wreath, or a couple of Christmas stockings will be just fine.

What’s Your Winning Strategy on DealDash?

DealDash

What’s your winning strategy on DealDash? There are many different ones to choose from, and you can change yours anytime.

Is there a favorite DealDash strategy that you often use when you are bidding? There is no set way that you have to bid on DealDash. If you use a certain strategy one day it doesn’t mean that you have to use the same one the next time – and it’s probably better for you if you don’t! Here are some things to think about when you are adopting a new strategy into your rotation. Read on for more information.

The Watcher

Sitting back and watching the auctions unfold when you aren’t bidding can be a great strategy. After watching certain people bid a few times you can almost predict what they are going to do when they’re bidding. Most people are creatures of habit. If you notice a bidder who consistently drops out of an auction at a certain point, such as when the auction hits a price of $10, or when there are a certain number of bidders that join the auction, then you have a “leg up” on them.

Don’t Spend All of Your Bids at First

Not spending all of your bids in the beginning of an auction is a great strategy that will result in saving lots of bids.  You need to use patience and watch the auction carefully if you want to use this strategy. The way to go about using this strategy is to put in a few bids at the beginning to see if the auction will end quickly, and if it doesn’t, then drop out for a bit.

The only problem with this strategy is that sometimes auctions end suddenly, and you might miss out. You wouldn’t want to use this strategy on something that you are extremely interested in. This is a good strategy to use on items that you see frequently on DealDash. Remember, being a person who drops in and out of auctions might miss out on some opportunities that other more persistent bidders might take advantage of.

BidBuddy Bidding Strategy

Are you incorporating the BidBuddy into your DealDash strategies? The BidBuddy is a great tool that DealDash gives (free of charge) to all bidders, that you can put in as many or as few bids as you like. You can cancel it or add more bids at any time. No matter what your core strategy, whether it’s being generous with your bids or more frugal, the BidBuddy can help you win.
