screenshot-13

Shopping and bidding on DealDash is perfect for Christmas toys. Here are some items for the upcoming holidays.

DealDash is here to help you with your Christmas shopping. Later on this month we will talk about some great things that you can win for the adults in your lives, but since Christmas is the favorite holiday of most children, here is a DealDash gift-giving guide for your favorite tiny people.

Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo

Kids age zero to about 8 love stuffed animals. DealDash has you covered if you are searching for the perfect stuffed animal for a child. They have the perfect stuffed animals for babies and toddlers – they are an animal head attached to a tiny blanket about the size of a washcloth. They are perfect for the baby to cuddle, they are easy to hold, and the baby can even chew on them when they are teething. For preschool age DealDash has the Elmo stuffed animal as shown in the picture above. Preschool kids love Elmo! And for older kids that are in elementary school, they have the Cuddle Pillows that are in the shape of their favorite TV characters. If you’re going to give a child a stuffed animal for Christmas this year, be sure to check DealDash first!

DealDash has begun to offer educational and craft toys made by ALEX for children. These educational and craft kits are fun, great for elementary school-aged children, and can even be a gift given to a family for the children to share among siblings. If you are a little short on cash and have multiple children in the same household to give a gift to this Christmas, an ALEX kit might be the way to go! You can save money by giving a single gift to a sibling group, they can enjoy it together, and their parents will be happy that there is only 1 extra toy in the house instead of multiple.

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

If you would like to get either of these items for the upcoming Christmas season, just search for them on DealDash, then set an alert. Setting an alert is simple. Just search for your toy, click on the item, and look on the right side of the screen. There will be a blue button that says “Alert Me”. Click on the button, and when the item is coming up for auction DealDash will send you an email. It’s the only way to never miss out on an auction for a product that you really want.

I hope that you have found this article helpful, thanks for reading! Go check out DealDash at this link right here. Good Luck and Happy Bidding everyone!

Happy Halloween 2016 from DealDash!

http://www.dealdash.com/?utm_source=referral&utm_medium=blog&utm_campaign=DDBlogDawn

Happy Halloween! Here’s to a safe and fun Halloween for everyone.

Halloween is a time for scary fun, and great seasonal treats as well. Halloween perfectly embodies the spirit of the crisp and chilly fall season. The earliest traces of the origin of Halloween are found with the Celtic festival, Samhain, which was the Celtic New Year. Samhain, of course, has very little to do with today’s Halloween festivities, though.

Gemmy Halloween Airblown Pumpkins Stack on Each Other

If you’re wondering why we carve pumpkins on Halloween, carving a “Jack-o’-lantern” originated with the Irish immigrants (Hi Grandma and Grandpa!) brought the tradition to America, where pumpkins were plentiful and far easier to carve than the original large turnips and potatoes that were used in Ireland. The story about the Jack-o’-lantern comes from an Irish folktale about a man named Stingy Jack. The story is much too scary to tell here on this family blog – but suffice to say that carving  a Jack-o’-lantern is a perfect thing to do to get into a spooky frame of mind.

Interestingly enough, Halloween is the second most commercially successful holiday here in the USA – trailing after Christmas, of course. You might wonder what all of that money is going towards. Candy is a huge part of it, of course, Americans buy about 600 million pounds of candy each year for Halloween. Also going towards the tally are costumes, pumpkins, party supplies, and decorations. About 50% of households in the US decorate for Halloween, which makes things so much more fun for the trick-or-treaters.

If you didn’t decorate your house for Halloween this year, consider decorating next year. DealDash can help – throughout the year DealDash offers a selection of Halloween decorations, including large inflatable lawn decorations that are usually very expensive. You can get an awesome deal if you win one! And if you don’t win, you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and receive all of your bids back to try again on another auction, as well as getting free shipping. Now that’s a ghoul of a deal! Just click this link here to visit DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Bidding as a Family

 

Bidding on DealDash can be a wonderful family activity. DealDash is available 24/7 for your entertainment.

If you think of DealDash as a solo activity, why not try sharing your bidding experience with your family? It can be very fun to pick out things to bid on together as a family. If you have kids that are trying to learn how to do math, how about getting them to help you in deciding how many bids you should place to reach the BIN (Buy It Now) price? If there is a birthday coming up in your family it could be very fun and exciting to have your kids help you pick out a present on DealDash, and then bid on it together.
Other than picking out presents for people, there are a few categories on DealDash that would definitely be of interest to other family members. I’ll go through the categories below that I feel might interest certain family members.

Fashion, Health, and Beauty – This category is great for mom, grandma, your wife, aunt, or even daughter. There are so many awesome things in this section, it’s one of my favorites. There are hair accessories and products, massagers, purses, and even jewelry and watches. If you would like to share the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category with the lady in your life, just click here.
Electronics and Computers – Most husbands, uncles, brothers, and dads would probably be interested in the Electronics and Computers category. There are always computers and tablets in this this section, however there are also a lot of other exciting and unique things to find in this category. For instance, this is where you can find bluetooth speakers. That would be a really fun thing to bid on. In this category you can also find cameras and camera accessories, phones, phone chargers, and phone cases, and let’s not forget video game systems and the games to go with them! If you’d like to show your husband or father the Electronics category, just click here.
Home, Garden, and Tools – This is another section that is great for a lot of people in your life. There are items for everyone from your sister to your uncle to your grandma in this category. This category offers the outdoor tools and accessories that are great for your handy projects, and also for the gardener in your life. Just think, of you supply a gardener you know with gardening items I bet you will get an excellent return on your investment with fruits and veggies! This section also has decorative items for your home, which make excellent gifts, especially for a wedding or housewarming party. If you haven’t been to the Home, Garden, and Tools section recently, go check it out right here.

 Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games – This section is awesome for not only kids, but also for sports lovers. I have gotten my kids (and my husband) so many sports items and toys from this category. Here is where you and your family can bid on basketball hoops, bikes, grills, toys, games, and Lego.

May Is National Bike Month – Get Yours at DealDash

Most children and adults enjoy riding bikes in the nice weather. May is National Bike Month, if you need a new ride check out DealDash.

Bikes are fun for everyone who is able bodied enough to walk, from the smallest child to senior citizens. Bikes are not only fun, but they are the primary mode of transportation for many people, and burn lots of calories helping you get your work out for the day while you are enjoying a bike ride. Bikes are great for getting the family together for a nice ride around the neighborhood, and fun for small kids to just ride up and down the driveway. What kind of bike is right for you or your children or grandchildren, though? Read on below and we will discuss a few different types of bicycles and their targeted users.

Mountain bikes are ideal for biking on different kinds of terrains, especially rough and uneven trails. Mountain bikes have different speeds so you can transition from gravel roads to rough trails to a paved road with no problem whatsoever. Mountain bikes tend to be extremely sturdy and are built to take a beating and still last.

If mountains and rough trails aren’t your thing, how about a beach cruiser bike? Beach cruisers aren’t just for the beach! They have spring saddle seats for a comfortable and upright riding position, and swept-back cruiser handlebars for arm comfort. Beach cruisers are great bikes for the casual rider who enjoys a ride around the neighborhood instead of an intense workout. Beach cruisers are also a popular bike with seniors and vacationers. Personally, I have a Schwinn beach cruiser and it’s the most comfortable bike that I have ever ridden, and the only one that hasn’t caused me to have a sore body afterwards.

Lastly, we can’t forget children’s bikes! I’ve never met a kid who wasn’t excited to go for a bike ride. I got both of my older children bikes for Christmas and they are so excited for Spring to be here so they can go out and ride them more often. The most important thing with kid’s bikes is to make sure that you get your child the right size. I will include a chart below that shows what size bike (in inches) that you should be looking for when you are shopping for a bike for a child.

DealDash regularly has bikes for kids and adults , and even safety equipment up for auction. Please make sure that everyone in your family is wearing a helmet every single time they go for a bike ride, no matter how short or how close to home. It only takes one second to get into an accident.

So the next time you are in the market for a new bicycle or any of the other fine bike products that DealDash has to offer you should head on over, book your Bid Buddy, and sit back and enjoy the thrill of the auction. And remember, if you have bid up the auction to the point of retail price you should go ahead and hit the “Buy It Now” (BIN) button, because when you BIN the item for the retail price you get every single one of your bids back, immediately. You can then use them all over again to try and win another auction. Good luck and Happy Bidding, everyone!

Just Keep Swimming With DealDash

Today’s article is all about swimming! Not only is swimming fun it’s also great for your health and an important life skill to have.

Okay, let’s see a show of hands – who knows how to swim? All of you?! Excellent! As I’m sure you already know, swimming is a wonderful life skill to have that is a wonderful gift that you can give to your children. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) There are approximately 3,500 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States —  that’s about ten deaths per day. An additional 347 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents. About one in five people who die from drowning are children age 14 and younger. As you can see from these statistics it’s extremely important that you and your children know how to swim, just in case.

In addition to swimming being a skill that everyone should master, it’s also extremely healthy and good for your body. Even elderly people who have trouble walking long distances can usually swim for their health and enjoyment because in the water you are practically weightless, so therefore there is very little stress on your bones, ligaments, and joints that can lead to pain.

Swimming is a good all-round activity because it:
  • keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body.
  • builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.
  • helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs.
  • tones muscles and builds strength.

If the safety and health benefits aren’t enough reasons for you to go swimming, then how about the fact that swimming is extremely fun an loved by both young and old? Every single kid I know loves going to the pool, and most of the adults enjoy taking them as well. Swimming is a great family activity because everyone can participate, even babies can get in the water as long as they are being helped by Mommy or Daddy.

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to go somewhere to get all of the great benefits of swimming? Well, thanks so DealDash you can! DealDash occasionally has above ground pools up for auction as well as all manner of pool accessories and toys.

You can set your Bid Buddy and get one of these great products for a fraction of the cost! If you don’t happen to win the auction, though, you can still be a winner by using BIN (Buy it Now).

Merry Christmas Everyone!

This is my last blog to you before Christmas, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! It truly is a wonderful time of year and we all have so much to be thankful for.

Personally, I have had a wonderful year this time around, and though the year isn’t quite over yet I keenly feel extremely thankful around Christmas time. I would also like to thank DealDash for having so many wonderful auctions this year, I have won some very nice items, and this has allowed me to treat my family and friends to much better gifts than I would have normally been able to get them.

In addition to the actual goods that I have been able to get them, I have also gotten many gift cards at a great discount, at one point this year I had over $500 in Toys R Us gift cards that I had gotten from DealDash for a fraction of that amount. I believe that I used the BIN (Buy It Now) feature a couple of times, however when you use the BIN feature you get all of your bids back when you buy the gift card at face value, as well as free shipping AND you get to keep your “time as the highest bidder”, so it’s really a win-win situation even if you don’t win.

 

What are some of your traditions on Christmas Eve? In my family we have always let the kids open one small present on Christmas Eve, and then we go for a drive before bedtime and look at all of the beautiful Christmas lights. I have heard about other traditions such as each child gets a new set of pajamas on Christmas Eve, some other people do traditions with food.

If your family doesn’t have any special traditions yet, how about starting some? I know that while we are driving around on Christmas Eve looking at lights I am thinking about when I was a child and my family would be doing the same thing. It feels good to pass on traditions that my kids will probably continue when they grow up and have their own families.

That’s about it, everyone. If you are still looking for any last minute gifts head on over to DealDash and check out what they have up for auction today. It probably won’t arrive before Christmas, but it will get to you quickly and safely. Merry Christmas Everyone! Stay tuned for my next blog on Saturday!

Black Friday Letdown? Not on DealDash!

How did you spend your Black Friday? Well, if you’re a hardcore shopper like myself you spent it fighting over cheap products!

Quite honestly, Black Friday shopping is usually a little bit of a letdown. I have a lot of fun looking through all of the sale papers and carefully crafting my strategy of which stores to go to, in what order, and what exactly I’m getting. It’s a lot of work, and in the end I wait in the cold New England weather, endure the pushes and shoves of my fellow shoppers, and spend a ton of money on stuff that I don’t really even need.

I probably should have saved my time, money, and effort and just shopped on DealDash! Just thinking back, what did I buy on Black Friday? Well, for starters, I got this lovely new Chromebook on which I am currently writing this blog. It was one of the “Doorbusters” at a large electronics store, so I had to get there early. They actually opened on Thanksgiving evening, so I ended up shoveling down the turkey and pie, cutting the family time short, and getting in line in the chilly Connecticut weather. How much did I really save? Was it worth missing out on the family time? Not really. I should have just gotten my Chromebook on DealDash. They have a good selection, and as always, if you don’t end up winning you can always BIN (Buy It Now) and get every single one of your bids back.

What else did I shop for on Black Friday? Well, as the proud owner of 2 (almost 3!) kids of course I got some great Christmas presents for them at some of the popular “big box” stores. Now let me tell you, those places are CRAZY on Black Friday. If you are interested in some of the more popular deals of the year there is snatching, grabbing, pushing, and those are just the more polite shoppers! I feel a little silly getting into that crowd when I could have just done my shopping on DealDash. They have the exact same toys, games, and sports equipment that I bought at the big box retailers, I could have stayed home and relaxed, and I might have even gotten an awesomely amazing deal.

I hope this article has encouraged you to rethink your Black Friday strategy next year. DealDash has it all, everything you need to make your family happy. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
