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.

The Early Bird Gets the Good Deal on DealDash

I am similar to most people on DealDash, I think – we all love to shop! And one of the most satisfying shopping experiences that a person can have is to be completely done with all of their Christmas shopping by the end of November.

I was able to do this last year with a little help from DealDash, but this year it’s going to be even easier. I’ll let you guys in on a little secret…Starting Monday August 10th DealDash is running their “Early Christmas Gift Sale” promotion! It runs all week, and includes discounted bids as well as 2x Highest Bidder time!

Since you have a couple of days until this promotion starts maybe you should start thinking about what your friends and family might like for Christmas this year. I have 2 small kids (and 1 on the way!) so I am pretty in tune with what the infant-to-elementary school age is interested in, and I have been doing my research on the best gifts for this year. Here is a quick run-down of what I think are some of the most entertaining things that your kids or grand kids would love to get as a gift:

Baby to Toddler

 

Babies and toddlers absolutely LOVE stuffed animals- and even better than plain stuffed animals are ones that sing, talk, and make other noises when you press their buttons. However, my daughter has a few of these from her younger days, and they are still cuddly even though they are basically stuffed robots.

Preschooler

My daughter is now preschool-aged, and some of her favorite things are Minnie Mouse, her kid’s laptop, and her tablet. She also loves outdoor water toys and dolls that she can dress up, too.

Grade K-3

My son falls into this category, and some of his favorite things are robots, radio-controlled (RC) cars & trucks, and of course his bike! He tells me that Doc McStuffins is popular with the girls in his class.

Grade 4-6

Most of the kids in upper elementary grades are growing out of toys by this age, but I can definitely think of a few things they might enjoy, such as a Remote Helicopter/drone, an iTunes gift card, or if you’re feeling really generous an iPad mini would bring a smile to just about any kid’s face!

Hopefully I have given you a few ideas that got you into the gift-giving spirit. All of these things and way more can be found on DealDash, mostly in the Toys, Kids, & Baby section. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Christmas Countdown Has Begun!

I have to admit that I have bought a few things on DealDash that I would never use myself but could actually make cute Christmas gifts or stocking suffers now that the Christmas countdown has begun.

I’ve won off-the-wall items just to get that winning bid like a Retro Style Handset for your Android or iPhone and a “CashStash” capsule for your keychain.

One of the perks about shopping on DealDash is that you can get some really good deals and once you get your item, you can do what you please with it. I like to donate and give things away for events or parties I’m attending throughout the year.

For instance, I won big stuffed dog bed that I donated to my local humane society. When I feel like there isn’t anything I would want on DealDash, I will look for things that I could win that would be a perfect donation gift. I have won several items that my local shelter has been the gracious recipients of.

I also like to search the auctions for birthday and Christmas presents. Sure I’m looking for Christmas presents practically all year-long but I can keep those gifts in my closet until December when I decide to wrap it. Now is a good time to start shopping for your holiday gifts because the Christmas countdown has officially started with the autumn season now upon us and as of today (September 23rd) we’re only 92 days away! Here’s a cute Christmas countdown timer you and you kids can follow!

Buy a bid pack once a week and before you know it, you have a closet full of items that are perfect gifts for family and friends throughout the year. DealDash is not only fun but productive when you’re having a great family get-together!

A little about myself: I’ve been bidding on DealDash for about two years and really like it. I like to frequent DealDash because it is fun and entertaining. I’ve gone to other sites but find myself coming back to DealDash because of the ability to get your bids back when you buy it now after losing an auction.
