What Are You Doing with Your DealDash Wins?

DealDash

You’ve been getting a lot of DealDash wins lately. What are you doing with them?

If you’ve been bidding on DealDash for a while you probably have been accumulating a lot of wins. There are only so many items that you can really use for yourself. Here are some tips and ideas for what you can do with your DealDash wins.

Save Them for the Holidays

It seems like they move the holiday celebrations up earlier and earlier every year. I was at the mall last night and one of the department stores already had their Christmas trees and other decorations up for sale! Now that we have entered October, you might want to think about starting to save some of your wins to use as gifts. Alternately, you could start bidding on specific things that you think people might like as gifts.

I find that the gift cards can be enjoyed by just about everyone. If you are the sort of person who likes to give away small gift cards to service people such as your paper delivery person, mail person, and garbage collector, DealDash has some great choices that anyone could use such as Subway or Dunkin’ Donuts.

Choose Your Gift, Then BIN

If you don’t win the gift card outright, then you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get the gift card, free shipping, and all of your bids back to use on another auction. You will also get to keep the “clock time” that you earned by bidding on the gift card.

This situation is true for any product on DealDash that you want to bid on. If you see a piece of art, an electronic item, or anything else that you think would make a perfect gift, just win it or BIN it!

 

Don’t Forget to Donate

We’ve all done it – bid on an item that we weren’t crazy about just because it looked like an easy win. Once you do win it, if it’s not something that you think someone you know would enjoy getting as a gift, why not donate it to charity? There are so many different charities that accept donations, from church groups, to the animal shelter to national disaster relief groups. It will help someone else and make you feel good as well. Remember, just because something isn’t your “cup of tea” doesn’t mean that someone else wouldn’t appreciate it.

On DealDash you can shop for things that you need and want, but also have fun. “How can online shopping be fun?” you might ask. The answer is by bidding!

How is there no monetary risk? Luckily, DealDash is a progressive auction site and has come up with the brilliant solution of Buy It Now. Buy It Now is referred to as “BIN” by DealDash, and is really a lifesaver if you feel that you’ve bid over your budget.

Care For Some Tea?

 

Who likes tea? If you’re like 4 out of 5 Americans, then you’re at least a casual tea drinker.

You would be in good company if you agree that you like to drink tea – in 2014, Americans consumed over 80 billion servings of tea, or more than 3.60 billion gallons. About 84% of all tea consumed was Black Tea, 15% was Green Tea, and the small remaining amount was Oolong, White and Dark Tea. USA is the second largest importer of tea after Russia. As I said above, Approximately four in five consumers drink tea, with Millennials being the most likely (87% of millenniums drink tea).

On any given day, over one half of the American population drinks tea. On a regional basis, the South and Northeast have the greatest concentration of tea drinkers. As a former Southerner, I know that this fun fact is true – approximately 85% of tea consumed in America is iced.

 

 

Luckily for us tea drinkers DealDash realizes the importance of tea to Americans, and that’s why they offer up a large and varied selection of tea and tea accessories. Let’s see what we can find up for auction to satisfy your favorite tea drinker that you know.

If you’re an iced tea drinker like myself, you might be interested in the Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker. The Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker brews gourmet iced tea quickly and efficiently with one simple touch. Just add water (preferably filtered) to the reservoir, add loose tea leaves or tea bags to the brew basket, add ice to the pitcher, and press brew. The Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker makes up to 2.5 quarts of iced tea, and you can also regulate the strength of the tea. It’s also easy to keep clean – the glass pitcher, brew basket and permanent filter can be washed in the dishwasher. If you’re interested in some awesome iced tea brewed from home, check it out at this link here.

If you would like something even easier, how about an assortment box of tea bags? You can enjoy a cup of tea whenever you’d like with Celestial Seasonings Tea in 25 assorted flavors. This combo pack of Celestial Herbal Tea, 150ct, features a variety of 25 flavors you are sure to enjoy. All of these teas are caffeine free, as well. If you would like to try this great sampler, click this link here.

Best Time of the Day to Bid on DealDash

There are so many great items to bid on at DealDash, but when is the best time to bid on them?

I really think that the most important thing to do before you make any kind of bidding commitment is to do your research! Once you have found something that you would really like to win and you feel like you can commit yourself to going all the way to the BIN price if you have to, then start checking out every auction for the item you want, as well as similar items. I personally would make a spreadsheet detailing when the auctions for the coveted item (or very similar ones) start, bookmark them on DealDash, and then when the auction is over, what time the auction ended. By the way, if you don’t know how to bookmark auctions on DealDash, it’s really easy! Just click the little star in the top right corner, and it will turn yellow.

After you have watched and studied and took notes on these auctions you can get a better idea of when might be your best time to take the plunge and start bidding. Just make sure that you get your first bid in before the auction hits $5 or you will be locked out.

Personally, I have found the best times to bid in general are weekdays during the daytime, and holidays. However, DealDash has grown to be such a huge site with so many people opening accounts and bidding it’s really hard to say. I feel the best idea when trying to find the best time to bid is just to watch, watch, watch! If you happen to be browsing the “Winners” section on DealDash and notice that a lot of items have gone quite cheaply in the past hour or so, well, now’s the time! Load up that BidBuddy and have some fun!

So, DealDashers, that is how I decide when to bid when I want to get a great deal on DealDash. Sometimes the plan works out beautifully and I won an awesome item, and other times I end up Buying It Now and using my bids a different day. That’s the fun of DealDash, you never know who will win! So go ahead and check out the auctions and see what you would really like to bid on and WIN! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.

How I Decide What to Bid On

There are so many great items to bid on when you go to DealDash sometimes it’s hard to choose what you really want.

I really think that the most important thing to do before you make any kind of bidding commitment is to do your research! Once you have found something that you would really like to win and you feel like you can commit yourself to going all the way to the BIN price if you have to, then start checking out every auction for the item you want, as well as similar items.

For instance, if you are interested in a certain outdoor grill then make sure that you put every grill that’s even remotely similar with the similar BIN price on your watch list. You can put them on your watch list by clicking the little star in the upper right corner, and DealDash will save the auction for you so you can come back later and check it out. It’s one of my favorite DealDash features.

The reason that you want to put the other similar grills onto your watch list is that some people aren’t too particular about name brand, color, etc. and they are just trying to win a grill, any grill. You will especially find this to be true when people are doing their Christmas shopping and they are bidding on DealDash to pick up gifts for people.

Once you have all of these grills (or whatever item you are interested in of course!) on your watch list you should try to watch each and every grill auction, and take note of what day and time they begin, and what the final auction price is. That way you can get a better idea of when might be your best time to take the plunge and start bidding. Just make sure that you get your first bid in before the auction hits $5 or you will be locked out.

So, DealDashers, that is how I decide what to bid on when I visit DealDash. Sometimes the plan works out beautifully and I won an awesome item, and other times I end up Buying It Now and using my bids a different day. That’s the fun of DealDash, you never know who will win! So go ahead and check out the auctions and see what you would really like to bid on and WIN! See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.
