DealDash Heroes: Firefighters

DealDash

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

Everyone is familiar with firefighters, and many, many little boys (and some little girls!) want to grow up to be firefighters when they grow up. Firefighters are some of the most brave and courageous individuals that I know of. Here is a little but more information about firefighters, their history, and their importance to our communities.

Firefighter History

Can you guess how long organized firefighters in the USA have been around? If you guessed January 27, 1678, you’d be right! The first fire engine company in the USA went into service with its captain Thomas Atkins in January 27, 1678. Before 1678, if there was a fire ordinary citizens would form bucket brigades and attempt to fight the fire themselves. This was typically not very successful, there were many injuries and very few instances of success. 

What Else Do Firefighters Do?

When you think of firefighters, you probably have two mental images – fighting fire, of course, and saving kittens that get stuck up in trees. However, firefighters do so much more for the community than just fight fires and rescue kittens! Another huge part of being a firefighter is administering medical aid as well. Interestingly enough, in the USA, more than half of the calls that firefighters go to are actually for medical aid and not for fires! Many firefighters are trained in EMS (Emergency Medical Services) as well as fighting fires. This makes firefighters even more valuable to citizens.

Firefighters work very closely with law enforcement as well. Did you know that every fire that firefighters are called to come help with is considered a crime scene until it is cleared with the police? This means that firefighters have the additional job of preserving evidence and protecting the crime scene as well?

How Can We Thank Firefighters?

Being a firefighter is a difficult and dangerous job. In many cases, the firefighters who are risking their lives for us daily are actually volunteers as well. We should all be grateful to them and show our appreciation for their selfless acts of courage.

Of course, the easiest and best way that you can help your local fire station is to give them a donation. If you don’t want to give a monetary donation, gifts of bottled water, canned goods, blankets, and personal hygiene supplies are typically welcomed as well. If you’re interested in giving this type of donation just give your local fire station a call and see when the best time is to drop off a donation. Show the firefighters how much you appreciate all of their hard work for your community.

Get FREE Bids to Use on DealDash Auctions

DealDash

Do you love DealDash? Do you love free stuff? Then you’ll love FREE bids to use on DealDash.

I love to help newbies win more auctions on DealDash, and a great way to win more auctions is to have more bidding power. How can a person get more bidding power? By getting free bids from DealDash, of course. Winning on DealDash with bids that you bought is great, but winning with FREE bids is even better. Here is the best way to get free bids on DealDash.

Using the Time Clock to Get Free Bids

What’s the easiest way to get free bids on DealDash? Quite simply, the easiest way to get free bids is to bid. What do I mean? It’s easy!  Navigate yourself to DealDash, and look at the bottom of your screen.  You will see your bidder name on the far left, your bids that you have left in your bid bank, your DealDash level, and finally your “Time as the highest bidder” time clock meter.

Have you ever noticed that when you bid your time clock meter starts filling up with green when you are in the lead? Eventually, your time clock meter will be filled up all the way, and you will receive free bids from DealDash. Once your time clock meter has been filled your bid bank will immediately be credited with free bids. After that, you’ll move up one level. Every time that you move up a level you will start all over again with an empty time clock meter.

Time As The Highest Bidder Multiplier

Honestly, it takes quite a while to fill up those time clock meters. Luckily, DealDash realizes this and has come up with a solution. TATHB Multipliers! What is a TATHB Multiplier? This is when DealDash gives you two, three, or even four times as much time on your time clock meter! This is an excellent time to bid on something that you would use anyway and don’t mind paying full price for, such as a gift card. Because even if you don’t win the auction, you can always BIN it, get your bids back, and even get to keep the time that you accrued on your time clock meter as a gift from DealDash.

 

 

Didn’t WIN? Better BIN!

Taking advantage of the TATHB Multiplier is a total no-brainer because DealDash always offers the BIN option. Buying It Now (BIN) is just the smart thing to do. After you’re done bidding in an auction, submit your payment to DealDash. After this, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. Thats how you can take advantage of the TATHB Multiplier and not lose any money in the process.

DealDash Helps You With the Finer Things in Life

DealDashMany people enjoy the finer things in life. DealDash can help you get them for less money. Read on for more information.

Having the finer things in life is the aspiration of most people. Of course, there are people who prefer to live life simply and with fewer material possessions, but those type of people aren’t normally found on “Entertainment Shopping” websites! If you love the finer things in life but are lacking in the funds department, then it’s time to see what kinds of classy things that DealDash has to offer you. Let’s take a look.

Electronics and Gadgets

DealDash is the home of all things electronic and loves to showcase new gadgets. If you hear about a new gadget on the news or read about it in a magazine, you can pretty much bet that it will be showing up on DealDash shortly. In fact, DealDash was actually the first place that I had ever seen sleep-tracking devices that go on the bed, and I ended up winning two of them!
DealDash was actually also offering smartwatches before Apple even came out with their Apple watch! Isn’t that amazing to think about? It’s like DealDash is on the cutting edge of all things fun, electronic, and gadget!

Classy Items for the Home

Living in your own home is nice, but sometimes it takes a while to accumulate classy and expensive things such as art and sculpture. With DealDash you don’t have to worry about trying to find an interesting painting at a garage sale or a chipped sculpture at your local discount store. DealDash offers both art and sculpture for inside and outside of your home. These auctions are offered quite frequently, so it’s easier than you might think to snag a piece of fine art for a low price.

BIN When a Win Doesn’t Happen

There will be plenty of times that you don’t win the auction. Unfortunately, that is just part of the pay-to-bid experience. If everyone was a winner every time, then DealDash would go out of business and no one would get any good deals.

However, DealDash has a way that you can get all of the bids back that you spent on an auction. You can have your bids returned to you by buy Buying It Now (BIN). In your dashboard, you will see the “Open buy it now offers.” The name of the product is listed, as well as how long you have left to BIN the auction, and how many bids you will receive back when you purchase the item. Winning an auction is amazing, but BINning an auction and receiving your bids back is very satisfying as well.

Better Bidding on DealDash

DealDashWant to win more auctions on DealDash? Follow these tips for more wins.

Have you been examining your winning strategies on DealDash lately? It’s always a good idea to change up your bidding habits and strategies to see more wins on DealDash. Here are a few tips that will help you get more wins and have more fun playing on DealDash. It’s time to learn how to be the best bidder you can be, just follow these simple strategies and you’ll

Buy Bids for the Best Price

Part of having a winning strategy is having enough bids to implement your plans. Wait for a great sale on bids. It’s that simple! This means that you will have to plan ahead and avoid the temptation to buy bids when they aren’t the best price. The very best time to buy bids is to wait for a big sale. Just think, if you’re competing against someone who paid significantly more than you for bids, you have a better chance of winning because you’ll be able to spend more bids while spending the same amount of money.

 

Be Sure to Set Bidding Goals

Setting bidding goals is a wonderful way to become an even better bidder. Make a list of things that you would like to win, and keep an eye out for those special auctions that you have on your list. If you have many things on your list that you want to bid on, then it makes sense to put them in order from what you think will be easiest to win, then medium, then all the way to hardest. Just think, if you are able to win one of the harder or medium ones first, then you are sure to be able to win one of the easiest ones in short order!

Don’t Forget to Use the BIN Feature

When you’re working your way through the list of items that you want to win, you’re going to have some losses. That’s just how it goes when you’re on DealDash. However, try to bid on things that you would normally buy at the store anyway such as kitchen items or children’s things. If you don’t win, you can simply Buy It Now (BIN) the item for retail value. Not only will you get all of your bids back, but you’ll also get free shipping on these items.

Not Winning? Then You Better Be BINning!

DealDash

We can’t win all of the auctions on DealDash every time. However, the BIN option is always there for you.

If you’re a frequent bidder on DealDash, then I’m sure that you’re familiar with the BIN (Buy It Now) option. However, if you’re a new player on DealDash, then you should quickly familiarize yourself with BIN, because it will save you money and bids on DealDash. Read on to learn more about Buying It Now (BIN) on DealDash.

What IS BIN?

BIN is the thing to do if you don’t win! If you don’t win the auction that you’re bidding on, that’s okay because you can still get all of your bids by buy Buying It Now (BIN). You can BIN any auction that you have bid on, even if you only put in a few bids or have bid way more bids than you should have. If you want to find your open BIN offers, open your dashboard. You will see the “Open buy it now offers.” You will see the name of the product, how long you have left to BIN the auction, and how many bids you will receive back when you purchase the item.

It’s easy to pay. You have a choice if you’d like to pay with credit, debit, or even Paypal, exactly the same as if you had won. Upon the completion of your payment, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away, or save them for another day.

Calculate the BIN Price

You might be wondering how you know when to stop bidding and BIN the auction. No problem! It just takes a tiny bit of math to figure it out. Just take the retail price of the auction that’s listed on every auction page, and divide it by the price you paid for your bids. This price could be anywhere between .12 and .60, depending on how much you paid. This will give you the exact number of bids that you need to reach the retail price of the item. Keep in mind, though, that you will also need to pay the final auction fee if you win. Sometimes DealDash offers half-off or even free auction wins. Keep an eye on the banner on the main DealDash page for the details.

 

 

Shipping and Tracking

No matter if you’re winning or BInning, DealDash offers free shipping on all items on the site. This includes the smallest jewelry items to the biggest furniture items. They all have free shipping and handling. Isn’t that awesome?! Every item will arrive brand new, in the original box, and covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty.

Does DealDash Differ?

DealDashIf you’ve bid on other sites, you know DealDash is different. Here are some ways that DealDash is amazing.

Customer Service is Top Notch

I have been bidding on DealDash for years, and I have had very few problems. However, no website is perfect, so I have occasionally had to email customer service for one thing or another. For example, once I had an item arrived damaged. I’m not sure if it had been damaged in transit or what, but regardless, it wasn’t in “100% new and factory-fresh” condition, so I emailed customer service. They emailed me back within just a few hours and arranged an exchange for me. There was no fuss, no hassle, and no pressure.

DealDash Won’t Telemarket You

Speaking of pressure, there is another entertainment bidding site out there that relies on high-pressure sales techniques for their bids. I had signed up for them around the time that I had signed up for DealDash, to see which site I liked better. Well, this other site included a space for a phone number that was required, so I put it in. They called me within moments of me signing up and tried to pressure me into buying $1,000 worth of bids on the spot. When I said “No thanks, I’m not sure if I’ll like your site or not.” they kept trying to convince me. It was like a telemarketing call, it was awful. I ended up hanging up on him.

DealDash would never do that. As I’ve said before, I’ve been with them for years, and the only time that they have ever called me was for a survey, and they emailed me first to ask if they could call me. And when I was on that phone call with DealDash there was absolutely zero talk about trying to get me to buy bids, it was just a customer satisfaction survey which I was happy to participate in.

Free Shipping for WINs and BINs

Unlike those other bidding sites, DealDash offers FREE shipping on every single item, no matter how big or how small. That is one of the reasons that I originally thought that DealDash was much better than some of the other bidding sites. Other entertainment shopping websites offer free shipping on just gift cards, or small items and have excessive “handling charges” on other items.

Did you know that some of the other sites even charge to ship gift cards? To ship a single gift card with a receipt in an envelope should cost 1 stamp. If you take into account the company’s cost of paper, envelope, and stamp I could agree with them charging around a dollar to ship a gift card. However, some sites are charging upwards of $2 to ship a single gift card, which is at least double, if not more, than it actually costs them. That seems completely unfair to me.

Didn’t WIN? Then BIN!

Speaking of unfair, how unfair is it to spend your bids in an auction and have no way to get them back if you lose? There will be plenty of times that you don’t win the auction. Personally, I win about 1 in 10 of the auctions that I seriously participate in. I’m fine with those odds, because I know that I can get all of my bids back by buy Buying It Now (BIN) if I don’t win. After you pay for a BIN, DealDash will refund all of the bids that you spent on the auction. You can use them again right away or save them, depending on how you’re feeling that day.
